Thaddeus of Serbia

— Spiritual life is noetic life, which is higher than all the desires and feelings of this world.

— Communion with God is the normal spiritual state.

— The first step to communion with God is to give ourselves up to God completely.

— A soul which has given itself up to God’s will does not fear anything and is not troubled by anything.

— As well as keeping peace in your heart, practice standing before the Lord. This means constantly keeping in mind the fact that the Lord is looking at us.

— The mind, the will and the heart are at one among the enlightened, but among the unenlightened they are most often divided and many human misfortunes result from this.
