The best path is the middle path

If we get too upset over external difficulties, it’s a sign of little faith; if too upset over those internal, it’s a sign of pride. Don’t demand from yourself more than you’re capable of. Hope on the mercy of God and not on your own virtues. Don’t overload your body with labors. The best path is the middle path. A body too healthy and a body too weak are equally obstructive.

- Igumen Nikon (Vorobiev)

“Do not give in to thoughts of loneliness and other vain thoughts. This is a network of the enemy. God is with us, we are not alone. If it is necessary, the Lord will send us friends when we do not expect it. Try to live in the presence of God. All will be well. - Abbot Nikon (photo from Asceticexperience.com (Vorobiev)
