A Quote by Darth Trayus on understanding and life

Perhaps you were expecting some surprise, for me to reveal a secret that had eluded you, something that would change your perspective of events, shatter you to your core. There is no great revelation, no great secret. There is only you.

A Quote by Mr. on god, comprehend god, comprehension, and understanding

The reason humankind has trouble comprehending God is due to the fact that there is a difference between human time and God time. Most humans exist in the present. God exists in the past, present and future simultaneously. Think of it as a three level chess set. Humanity plays on one level and only one level. God plays on all three levels simultaneously. The ramifications for humanity in regards to our knowledge and experience base are profound. They are as profound as our relative limitations.

A Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh on understanding, love, compassion, and suffering

Understanding and Love are not two separate things, but just one. To develop understanding, you have to practice looking at all living beings with the eyes of compassion. When you understand, you cannot help but love. And when you love, you naturally act in a way that can relieve the suffering of people.

A Quote by Vladimir Antonov on life, soul, purpose, love, and understanding

Some important ideas from the book of early Christians which is called Philokalia:

From Spiritual Directions of Isaac of Syria

The one who wants to love God has to take care about the purity of the soul, first of all.

This purity is attained through conquering the passions.

(The one who has not conquered the passions cannot enter) the chaste and pure region of the heart.

Do not hate a sinner, for we all are to be res­pon­sible.

A Quote by Vladimir Antonov on life, soul, purpose, love, understanding, and christ

Some important ideas from the book of early Christians which is called Philokalia:

From Spiritual Directions of Theodore of Edessa

Only when we rid ourselves of passions and lust and put the desires of flesh under the control of Spi­rit, only then we accept the cross and follow Christ.

And “withdrawal from the world” is nothing but the destruction of passions and manifestation of the innermost life in Christ.

A Quote by Vladimir Antonov on life, soul, purpose, love, and understanding

Some important ideas from the book of early Christians which is called Philokalia:

From Spiritual Directions of Ephrem the Syrian

If you want to conquer lust for wealth, love selflessness and sparing way of life.

If you want to conquer anger, develop meekness and generosity.

Grieve only if you have committed a sin, but even in this case do not grieve too much, otherwise you may become desperate.

If you want to conquer conceit, do not desire praise, laurels, nice garments, respect, favor, but like to be blamed and slandered by people…

If you want to conquer pride, do not say that your deed was done by your hands and might; say that with God’s help and guidance it was done, not by my power and efforts.

A Quote by Simeon Hein on communication, information, understanding, and question

The principal boast of electronic communication is speed, and speed doesn't help much in grasping the information - it doesn't matter if you learn about the greenhouse effects this week or next month.  What matters is that when you do hear about it you understand it so deeply and thoroughly that you begin to question the way you live.
