If you sow uncultivated land, you’ll just waste your seeds, and, instead of wheat, you’ll harvest thorns. We, too, if we sow prayer in our soul while our flesh is fat, we’ll harvest sin instead of good fruits. Prayer will be lost or polluted in the midst of vain thoughts.

“I wish you many years — but not for them to be too happy, because happiness in the world isn’t really so healthy. When a man is too happy in this world, he forgets God and forgets death.” – Elder Paisius May we "remember God more often than [we] breathe."

So then, with the Grace of Christ, when you become accustomed to cutting off your own will repeatedly, this will occur naturally and without grief, just like your own desire is always being fulfilled. This is because you don’t want things to happen the way you want, but you want them to happen as God does, and as a result of this, you live peacefully with everyone. Then, being peaceful, you also pacify the heart of another. Based on Abba Dorotheos In this photo a candid shot with Abbot…
