Occupy your mind with God – St. Paisius Velichkovsky

November 19, 2009

There are so many things that need our attention: our families, our work, our bills…But, even with all these things, our minds must always be occupied by God.

St. Paisius Velichkovsky tells us how to do this:

What should one do so that the mind might be constantly occupied with God? If we do not acquire the three following virtues: love for God and men, continence, and the Prayer of Jesus, then our mind cannot be completely occupied with God. For love makes anger meek, continence weakens fleshly desire, and prayer draws the mind away from thoughts and banishes every hatred and high-mindedness.
