Try to look at the sun

Try to look at the sun. If you do not go blind, you will shower with tears. Do you think the Lord will be different?

***

About conscience.

Sold cheap, nothing stands.

***

The water in the stream is more delicious when you drink from it first.

***

The fire warms someone, and burns someone to ashes. The word in the mouth of a person can be a fire that warms and destroys the element.

***

Sometimes, it seems that sleep takes a lot of time from reflection and conversation. But I understand that sleep gives me an opportunity to understand what I heard and what I was thinking about. Without sleep, there would be chaos in my head.

***

In the noise of the waves, there is sometimes more meaning than in verbosity.

***

Many times I read the same books written by the Holy Fathers of the Church. The source from which you still drink and drink. The wisdom and simplicity of the thought of these people is amazing. And he grieves the paucity of his own mind. But it only reassures that there is a Father, and we are only His children.

***

The heart of the flattery looks like raisins: it seems to be sweet, but all wrinkled.

***

It happens like this: go to church for confession, remember everything you need to repent before the Lord. And you come and forget what you wanted to say, get lost in your thoughts.

What is it? Fear of the Lord for his sins or the devil with his handy dirty mouth plugging?

I remember standing in the church at a liturgy commemorating the Monk Seraphim of Sarov. It began at seven o'clock in the evening, and ended at half-past four in the morning. And about two o'clock in the morning, I realized that my legs were aching with pain and I no longer have the strength to stand. And then I meet the eyes of the Monk Seraphim with a glance, which is depicted on the icon. And it seemed to me, or the truth, he smiled at me. And some kind of lightness in the body appeared and a fortress in the legs. Yes, so that I understood, I can stand still for a long time, praying and remembering the Holy Monk Seraphim of Sarov.

"O great servant of God, holy and holy, our Father Seraphim! Look down from Gornia glory on us, humble and feeble, burdened by many sins, your help and the solace of those who ask. "
