Elder Paisios: Struggle with all your power to gain Paradise. . . .

Human existence, both physical and especially psychological, are compromised in the absence of the challenge and struggle to overcome the negative aspects of our natural beings: aspira ab astra, is the only way keep our minds and souls same, since it is much easier to prevent a fall, than to suffer its consequences. It is true we lean from that, but without influencing others, what did we actualy achieved? To believe that anything can be refuted, forgiven, is so detrimental to our nature, and while in a child it is synonymous with fear of punishment, in an adult is the rational set of thoughts, that keep one at bay, and safe within ones short life: Are you ready to find out that your actions, were not really forgotten?
