To fight for the silence of your mind.
To fight for the silence of your mind. Do not let him dismantle it. If you do not pay attention, it will wander without purpose, without meaning.
You will observe everything, you will judge everything, you will think that you are making the world and at the same time you will feel contempt for the world without even knowing it. Without realizing it, you will learn to ascend to a high throne and from there to measure everyone and everything in your own measure.
And you will learn to talk, to talk a lot! But the silence; the silence! It will leave space in your heart for the voice of God to be heard.
Saint Nektarios of Pentapolis
