Don’t make this world . . .

…about you. Don’t assume. Pursue greater context. Then pray.

“We don’t understand that this enemy that we have inside us is not our self; it’s not our personality. It’s only a temptation. This is the seed of the problem of the ego. We unite our personality, which is a priceless event, with our faults. We confuse our personality with our sin; we marry these two things, and we have a wrong impression of what we are. We don’t know what we are, and we need someone to show us who we are; we need someone to open our eyes so that we can at least see our darkness.” – Archimandrite Dionysios

“Open our eyes so that we can at least see our darkness.” That is why we don’t make this world about us. Don’t assume. Pursue greater context. Pray.
