Today's thought

The very act of living in the world makes people mad at you. If you did not act you would not be alive. So what do you do? Jump into the chaos and start jabbing with your elbows? Forget Peace?

It is Peace that makes the world liveable. 'WHERE is God?' (Elder Joseph the Hesychast)

God is not in the reasonable voice, but in the silence.

poverty and neediness

The poor shall be satisfied - means remain in poverty (and need). There in lies the path to happiness and salvation.

When I try to fix the problem, bestiality and arrogance get in the way and I fall into sin and pain of heart.
