sacred

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 Simeon the New Theologian on god, sacred, spirit, knowledge, wisdom, man, humility, mindfulness, gifts, and self

  I pray, you brother and sisters: let us strive with every means at our disposal to know ourselves.  Then each one of us, starting with this self knowledge, will be able to discover what is too high for us.  We need know ourselves so well that we can say like David: "I am worm and not a man " (Psalms 22:7) or like Abraham: "I am dust and ashes" (Genesis 18:7).  Otherwise it will be impossible to understand even the smallest part of the Word of God, to interpret it in a spiritual way worthy of the Spirit of wisdom.  Without humility it is not possible to become recipient of the gifts of the Spirit.

A Quote by Saint Dorotheos of Gaza on god, sacred, holy, wisdom, love, compassion, sadness, suffering, thankfulness, and reality

Therefore, we know about God that He loves and shows pity on His creatures, and also that He is the source of wisdom and knows how to govern everything concerning us.  Nothing is impossible for Him, but everything is subject to His will.  We must also realize that everything He does is for our benefit and we must accept it with thankfulness...as from a benefactor and a good lord even if is troublesome.  For everything is done with right judgment, and God, Who is merciful, does not overlook even the smallest sadness that we suffer.

A Quote by Saint Dorotheos of Gaza on god, self, spirituality, sacred, divine, growth, learning, evil, passions, and change

It often happens that someone sees himself sitting peacefully and quietly, but when his brother says a word that upsets him, he is troubled.  Thus, he thinks that he is justly upset with him, saying, 'If he hadn't come and spoken to me and troubled me, I wouldn't have sinned.'  But this is folly and absurdity.  Did the person that spoke to him give him that passion?  He simply showed him that the passion existed within him, so that, if he wanted to, he could repent of it.  He is like fine bread bread that shines on the outside, but when one breaks it, he see its moldeness.  In just the same way, he was sitting, as he thought, in peace, but he had this passion inside him he was unaware of.  His brother said one word and revealed the filth hidden inside him.  Therefore if he wants to receive mercy, he must repent, purify himself, progress and he must understand that he ought to thank his brother for being the great cause of his spiritual benefit.

A Quote by Bishop JOSEPHhttp://www.antiochianl on god, sacred, divine, purity, change, growth, spirituality, evil, mind, and love

In England, when people bow before the queen, they do so out of respect, but it does not imply any repentance.  But when we bow before Christ, it means that we are ready to empty ourselves from an evil mind, from any evil thought or act, or any evil thing in our lives.

A Quote by Elder Anthony of Optina on god, sacred, spirit, struggle, troubles, spirituality, rewards, victory, enlightenment, and laziness

Of course it would be easier to get to paradise with a full stomach, all snuggled up in a soft feather-bed, but what is required is to carry one's cross along the way, for the Kingdom of God is not attained by enduring one or two troubles, but many!

A Quote by Elder Pasios of the Holy Mountain on god, christianity, divine, victory, symbol, truth, sacred, spirit, devil, and gift

We have the power of the Holy Cross, our holy symbol, the divine grace of Christ, only as long as we have the holy marking of the Holy Baptism, meaning we have denied the devil and sided with Christ, and received the Holy Marking, the seal of the Gift of the Holy Spirit.

A Quote by Micheal Teal on beauty, sacred, spirit, soul, womb, love, earth, discovery, universe, and self

 The true beauty of the inner self is its spirit nurturing truth which breathes joy and happiness into our very soul. By living life in harmony and balance we awaken our inner universe and cultivate infinite love for all beings. The essence of being alive is to live an inspired life of higher self discovery that opens doorways to richness of spirit and inspires us to embrace the earth as a sacred womb of love.
