A Quote by St. John of Kronstadt on god, christianity, truth, spirituality, meditation, death, healing, renewel, love, and life

Christ is our hope, our cleansing and santification, our resurrection, life and repose.  He alone is what we all need, and therefore, the Orthodox Church constantaly pronounces these words aloud so that we may hear them during Holy Services of the Church, and be constantly renewed.  For we are inclined to forget the only thing we need.  With death all will be taken from us, all earthly goods, riches, beauty of body and raiment, spacious dwellings, etc., but the virtue of the soul, that incorruptible raiment, shall remain with us eternally.

Saint John of Kronstadt

A Quote by Gourasana on gourasana, meditation, spiritual desire, god, longing, truth, incarnation of god, going within, and modern-day meditation

In spiritual life, in the search for truth, in the search for God, desire is everything. Desire is a force that moves you, not only in spiritual life, but it moves you from one place to another in this material world. The situations that you create are largely based upon desires. So just as much of your material life is created by your desires, so is your spiritual life, because it is only by spiritual desire that one makes spiritual advancement in meditation.

Sometimes when a person goes within and begins touching upon a deep place, they cannot help but cry because of an incredible longing that it brings. Some feel it is like coming home after having been away for  so long, and it might feel like a sadness and a happiness at the same time.

For many people, to get in touch with their emotional side is a wonderful thing – to finally not be inhibited to let go, to express themselves in that way. However, for those that do not feel this, there are so many ways to truth; the ways vary so greatly. Don’t think that you need to follow the same path as the next person.

If you have not yet succeeded on an inward journey, be
gentle with yourself. Give yourself time. Gently let
yourself go deeper. Whatever experience comes to you,
let it take you over. Welcome it. Relish it.
