People feel more and more alone...

People feel alone because they no longer have eyes to see the persons next to them. They are so busy to see themselves that they can’t see the tears on the cheeks of the poor or sick. Only those who help feel fulfilled. You should not expect to be loved. God's commandment was to love, not to be loved. If we love, we can change something. First of all, we can change ourselves, then the others. Only love heals wounds and high souls. I know and feel that everyone has good parts. It depends of us, through Christian love, to develop that well early in the souls of the others.

Only when we come out of ourselves to love and help the others we’ll get to rest the soul. Otherwise, we are only kids of 30, 40, 50 ... 90 years. Not the years passing makes us mature, but the love. Love in Christ.

Un comentariu:

  1. A very simple and humbling truth.This sounds like something Elder Paisios would have said, or Elder Epiphanios of Athens.
