Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words. -Goethe

I once heard a monk say, “The person of prayer does not need to go any further than his own heart to find the source of all violence in the world.” -Fr. Stephen Freeman

Many years! And, watch out for intensified spiritual struggles for the closer you get to your illumination, the more the Evil One will attack.

He (and they) can be so predictable.  Fight through this.  We've got the stronger side, even if it doesn't always appear that way.
