Why don’t people come to an understanding? Why don’t they find the truth? Why does everyone want to have it his own way? Because man doesn’t start from God. Turning towards himself, man allows his egomania and self-love work like a worm, work like poison inside him.
The more man believes in God, the more he is redeemed from self-love, egocentricity and egoism.
You should give Christ a free hand, entrust your being to Christ, love Him and believe that everything that happened to the saints can happen in your own soul, too.
If you realize your dire spiritual condition and submit yourself to God, then God releases you from it.
Archimandrite Symeon Kragiopoulos (†)
