melt into God

 

The soul is like hardening clay

if it clings to materiality

and like soft wax when it clings to God

 

Saint Maximos the Confessor

 

Therefore the Christian, who is called to a heavenly country, who is only a stranger and a sojourner upon earth, ought not attach his heart to anything earthly, but should cling to God alone, the Source of life, our resurrection, and the Life eternal.

 

St John of Kronstadt
