Peace

A Quote by Albert Einstein on god, divine, sacred, holy, gospel, human, compassion, love, peace, and agonostic

No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus.  His personality pulsates in every word.  No myth is filled with such life."  Albert Einstien

A Quote by Saint Seraphim of Sarov on god, faith, action, growth, healing, heaven, peace, spirit, kingdom, and sorrows

Bear sorrows for the sake of the Heavenly Kingdom.  Without sorrows there is no salvation.  On the other hand, the Kingdom of God awaits those who have patiently endured.  And all the glory of the world is nothing in comparison.  My joy!  I implore you to acquire a peaceful spirit.

A Quote by Saint Nikolai Velimirovich on god, christianity, spirituality, heart, soul, wisdom, protection, spirit, peace, and purity

For every man, peace of soul is precious. With those who have attained peace of soul, the body can be in constant motion; in work, in pain, but their souls, affixed to God, always remain in unwavering peace. St. Seraphim of Sarov teaches: "It is necessary to concern oneself with all means in order to preserve peace of soul and not to be disturbed by the insults of others. That is why it is necessary, at all costs, to restrain yourself from anger with the help of vigilance over one's self, preserving the mind and heart from indecent movements. For preserving peace of soul, it is also necessary to avoid judging others. By not judging and by silence, peace of the soul is preserved. When a man is in such a state of mind, he receives divine revelations. In order for man to be preserved from judging others, he must be vigilant over himself; he must not receive from anyone non-spiritual thoughts and he should be dead toward everything worldly. We must tirelessly guard the heart from indecent thoughts and influences. `With closest custody, guard your heart for in it are the sources of life.'

(Proverbs 4:23). From perpetual vigilance over the heart, purity is born, in which the Lord is seen according to the words of eternal truth: `Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God' "(St. Matthew 5:8).

A Quote by Saint Isaac on god, christianity, silence, hearts, death, purity, cleansing, thoughts, virtues, and peace

Let us love silence till the world is made to die in our hearts.  Let us always remember death, and in this thought draw near to God in our heart - and the pleasures of this world will have our scorn.

Saint Isaac

A Quote by Saitn Elizabeth the New Martyr on god, love, nieghbors, fire, cultivation, growth, peace, spirituality, souls, and spirit

It is easier for feeble straw to resist a mighty fire than for the nature of sin to resist the power of love.  We must cultivate this love in our souls, that we may take our place with all the saints.  For through their love for their nieghbor, they were all pleasing to God.

A Quote by Saint Silouan of Mt. Athos on love, god, peace, hatred, enemies, hearts, hope, freedom, spirit, and soul

"Peace in our souls is impossible unless we beg the Lord with all our hearts to give us love for all men.  The Lord knew if we did not love our enemies, we should have no peace of soul, and so He gave us the Commandment, 'Love your enemies.'  Unless we love our enemies, we shall only now and then be easy, as it were, in our souls; but if we love our enemies, peace will dwell in us day and night."

A Quote by Saint Moses the Ethiopian on god, evil, judgement, peace, good, virtue, christianity, hope, freedom, and truth

Do not rail against anyone, but rather say, "God knows each one."  Do not agree with him who slanders, do not rejoice at his slander and do not hate him who slanders his nieghbor.  This is what it means not to judge.

Do not hate evils in others when they exist in yourself.  Rather, show hatred for the evils in your own person.

A Quote by Saint Silouan of Mt. Athos on god, christianity, spirituality, happiness, truth, awakening, enlightenment, humility, and peace

But to be saved, we must humble ourselves, for the proud man, even were he to be set down in Paradise would not find peace there but would be discontent, and say, "Why am I not up in the front rank?"  But the humble soul is filled with love and does not seek to be in the foreground.  The humble soul wishes good things to all men, and in all things is content.
