Spirit

A Quote by Micheal Teal on angel, soul, spirit, life, experience, beauty, guides, earth, world, and change

To connect with the angels we must trust our inner voice. Have a talk with your spirit guides, experience the extraordinary and embrace the beauty within for doing so will enable you to live the life you want to live. We are all Earth Angels and our souls are the place where heaven and earth meet. By knowing yourself you change the world for the better and live your higher self. Be love and you connect with the angels.

A Quote by Elder Ephraim of Philotheou on god, purity, spirit, struggles, fire, nature, soul, enlightenment, light, knowledge, and spirituality

Humble yourselves.  Do not think highly and you will attain high things.  The more gold is tested in the fire, the purer it becomes.  And the Christian, the more he is tried by temptations, the more his soul is purified.  The more deeply the plow tills the earth, the more often we prune and carefully tend the vines, the more and the sweetest fruit we will receive.

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 Sir Isaac Newton on nature, circulatory, atmosphere, earth, sun, conserve, river, spirit, light, and ether

For nature is a perpetual circulatory worker, generating fluids out of solids, and solids out of fluids, fixed things out of volatile, & volatile out of fixed, subtle out of gross, & gross out of subtle, Some things to ascend & make the upper terrestrial juices, Rivers and the Atmosphere; & by consequence others to descend for a Requital to the former. And as the Earth, so perhaps may the Sun imbibe this spirit copiously to conserve his Shining, & keep the Planets from receding further from him. And they that will, may also suppose, that this Spirit affords or carries with it thither the solary fuel & material Principle of Light; And that the vast ethereal Spaces between us, & the stars are for a sufficient repository for this food of the Sun and Planets. 

Sir Isaac Newton (1642 - 1727)

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 Albert Schweitzer on compassion, human, and spirit

The human spirit is not dead.  It lives on in secret . . .  It has come to believe that compassion, in which all ethics must take root, can only attain its full breadth and depth if it embraces all living creatures and does not limit itself.

Albert Schweitzer (1875 - 1965)

A Quote by Micheal Teal on sky, soul, creation, miracles, essence, spirit, vision, breath, harmony, reality, and inspiration joy

There is a bridge to the sky within your soul and a doorway to healing and peace within your heart. If we look inside and embrace our true essence we bless the source of life. See beyond your vision and you will find a garden of harmony and joy where every breath is a source of inspiration. If we dream new realities we will open ourselves to abundant blessings. Together we can create miracles!

A Quote by Saint Ephraim the Syrain on god, love, divine, spirit, enlightenment, hearts, grace, suffering, and sin

You victorious martyrs who endured torments gladly for the sake of God and Savior, you who have boldness of speech toward the Lord Himself, you saints, intercede for us who are timid and sinful men, full of sloth, that the grace of Christ may come upon us, and enlighten the hearts of all of us so that we may love Him.

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!
