truth

A Quote by May Sarton on success, failure, life, truth, delight, and attention

Whether success or failure: the truth of a life really has little to do with its quality. The quality of life is in proportion, always, to the capacity for delight. The capacity for delight is the gift of paying attention.

A Quote by Bishop JOSEPHhttp://www.antiochianl on god, christianity, service, true spirituality, truth, freedom, enlightenment, love, joy, and peace

All of us have been called to serve God. We do this in our families, our parishes and our secular jobs. We serve God when we serve one another. Our acts of kindness and generosity, our prayers for our loved ones and our enemies, are all offerings to God which He receives from us and uses for the benefit of all mankind.
 

Your Father in Christ,
Bishop JOSEPH

A Quote by St. Theophan the Recluse on talk, ignorance, god, spirituality, christianity, passions, truth, freedom, and meditation

"In general, Loquacity (rambling talk) opens the doors of the soul, and the devout warmth of the heart at once escapes.  Empty talk does the same, but even more so... Empty talk is the door to criticism and slander, the spreader of false rumors and opinions, the sower of discord and strife.  It stifles the taste for mental work and almost always serves as a cover for absence of sound knowledge..."

Saint Theophan the Recluse

A Quote by unknown on god, christianity, pride, humility, true spirituality, freedom, truth, peace, and liberation

"The proud man thinks he can comprehend everything with his mind. The Lord does not grant this ... The Lord does not manifest Himself to the proud soul. Pride is difficult to detect in oneself, but the Lord leaves the proud to be tormented by their impotence until they humble themselves." -- St. Silouan of Mount Athos

A Quote by Bishop JOSEPHhttp://www.antiochianl on god, christianity, spirituality, health, forgiveness, silence, meditation, enlightenment, awareness, truth, and freedom

Just as we care for our bodies with good food and rest, so we must also care for our spiritual selves, that part of us that is connected to God. If we are spiritually ill, our bodies and minds also become sick. This is why regular prayer and times of silent contemplation are necessary parts of our daily lives. Periodically, we must also take extra measures of self-examination and learning, that we might be ever-perfected in the grace of the infinite and perfect God.

Search your hearts and minds for the spiritual wounds of unforgiveness and fear, which are atheistic and unchristian, and repent of them so that you might be healed by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Your Father in Christ,

A Quote by David Edwards on truth, lies, system, integrity, environment, global, human, power, profit, neurosis, paranoia, communism, extremism, and nonsense

The forbidden truth is that we are living by a set of lies which are necessary for short-term profit, at the expense of human physical and psychological life and global environmental integrity. We are living in a system where power ensures that the requirements of profit take priority over the requirements of living things-including the need to know that this is the case. Consequently our freedom extends as far as, and no further than, the satisfaction of these requirements, with all else being declared neurosis, paranoia, communism, extremism, the work of the devil, or Neptunian nonsense.

A Quote by G. K. Chesterton on new age, cults, truth, belief, spirituality, god, christianity, free thought, and critical thinking

Where people stop believing the truth, they do not start to believe in nothing, they start to believe in anything.

A Quote by Franz Marc on art, letting go, surrender, truth, and life

Art is nothing but the expression of our dream; the more we surrender to it the closer we get to the inner truth of things, our dream-life, the true life that scorns questions and does not see them.

Franz Marc
