Wisdom from the Holy Fathers

Watch yourself with all diligence, lest the enemy draws near and robs you, depriving you of this great treasure, which is inner peace and stillness of soul. The enemy strives to destroy the peace of the soul, because he knows that when the soul is in turmoil it is more easily lead to evil. But you must guard your peace…An advance of the enemy is a self-reliant thought. Make it a rule to regard as clearly coming from the enemy every thought which tends to decrease your conviction that all good comes from God, that you can succeed in nothing without the help of His grace.                                                                  ~St. Nicodemos the Hagiorite, Unseen Warfare

 

Do not ask love from your neighbour, for if you ask and he does not respond you will be troubled. Instead, show your love for your neighbour and you will be at rest and so will bring your neighbour to love. ~St. Dorotheos of Gaza, Maxims on the Spiriutal Life
