God

A Quote by Gerontissa Makrina on god, spirituality, christianity, forgiveness, healing, love, psychology, peace, and truth

Continually forgive others.  Forgive AT ONCE, not one second latter, not one half second later, because if you hesitate to forgive, jealousy comes in the door, then hatred and envy.  Forgive instantly as Christ forgives instantly.

A Quote by Jewel Mathieson on articulation, forgiveness, fragments, god, goddess, i ching, innocense, jewel, joints, spirit, and toes

I collected them all, found every bone
except I couldn't find my hand, my hand
my mother had it
her calloused hard hitting hands have held me
gripped my spirit
she seized my hand at six
stripped it of innocense and grace
she severed my hand at seven
I found it again in a dry riverbed pointing North
this hand that has the most number of bones
fragments of bones, joints and articulation
I can't open it
I have my hand now
I can pray
I can pray again
I turn to the Goddess, pray for forgiveness
She says,  "there is no forgiveness because there are no sins"
She places God on the tips of my fingers
on the tips of my toes
and tells me that everyone has to learn how to pray
in their own way
in their own way with everything, everywhere
I collected them all, found every splintered bone
every piece of myself
now I dance flinging by bones to the floor
like the I Ching
like the I Ching each time I hit the floor
I'm different

A Quote by St. Innocent of Alaska on god, spirituality, christianity, violence, prayer, awakening, elightenment, light, and love

Do not be careless.  Pray as much as you can - more frequently and more fervantly.  Prod yourself - force yourself to do so, for the Kingdom of God is taken by force.  You will never attain it without forcing yourself.

A Quote by St. Tikhon of Zadonsk on god, spirituality, home, christianity, enlightenment, joy, love, peace, and freedom

Our Father awaits us with great zeal and desire, and with love He will see us returning from afar, and He will look upon us with compassionate eyes, and we shall be dear to Him, and He will fall on our neck running and embrace us and kiss us with His Holy Love.  He will not reproach us, and He will no longer remember our sins and iniquities, and all the holy angles and all His elect will begin to rejoice over us.

A Quote by St. Nicolai Vilimirovich on god, patience, forgiveness, joy, love, spirituality, psychology, and transcendent

Patience, forgiveness and joy are the three greatest characteristics of divine love.  They are characteristics of all real love - if there is such a thing as real love outside of divine love.  Without these three characteristics, love is not love.  If you give the name 'love' to anything else, it is as though you were giving the name 'sheep' to a goat or a pig.

A Quote by Gerontissa Makrina on god, art, beauty, life, spirituality, christianity, truth, and nature

If we do not see the beauty of God in this life then we will never see it in the next life.  We must see the glory of God in the smallest flower.

A Quote by St. Silouam the Athonite on god, chrstianity, truth, joy, peace, love, freedom, awareness, enlightenment, and liberation

"What joy is ours that the Lord not only forgives our sins ,but allows the soul to know Him, so soon as she humbles herself.  The poorest wretch can humble himself and know God in the Holy Spirit.  There is no need of money or posessions in order to know God, only humility.  The Lord gives Himself freely, for His mercy's sake alone.  I did not know this before but now every day and every hour every minute, I see clearly the mercy of God.  The Lord gives peace even in sleep, but without God there is no peace in the soul."
