Love is like insulation

November 14, 2009

My child, do you know what love is? What the Elder tells you about it,  is also found in books. The difference is when the Elder tells you this he gives you his experience and so in a short while you go off on your own and pray just like the Elder does. Spiritual life is a mystery.

Just like a robber can harm your body, a person with bad intentions can harm your soul. Unless you have plenty of love. Love fortifies you; it’s like insulation.

It doesn’t allow evil forces to reach you. Whereas obstinacy produces obstinacy. When a mother has such  weakness whatever she says to her child, the child  will go off and do what has been forbidden.

However, when the mother is gentle and loving, the child won’t do that.”
