falling and rising within you
“True self discover occurs only within the consciousness of the Church. Becoming one with the Body of the Church, and living within its assurance and certitude enables you to be free from changes, anxiety and sadness.
Troubles simply come come and go, passing by like waves, but they will never be able to drown you. You have become like the shore, unmoved by the pounding of the sea. The waves will come and crash all around but you no longer fear them. Instead they remind you of the endless waves of the Holy Spirit rising and falling within you.”
Elder Aemilianos of Simonopetra
