one method of curing the soul…

One of the fundamental methods of curing the soul is stillness in the full sense of the word.  I believe that we have already made this clear.  Contemporary man is seeking healing for his life, especially for his inner condition, precisely because he is over-strained.  Therefore one of the messages which Orthodoxy can offer to the contemporary weary, discouraged and floundering world is the message of silence.  I think that the Orthodox tradition has a great deal to offer in this area.

  1. Someone sent this to me and it was very providential. I am quite blessed to read this as my soul needed to hear this. I also pinned this to share. Have a grace-filled day. ~Theresa
