I've been reading a book on St. John of Kronstadt;
in it talks about the theme of joy
and that it is the devil who spreads gloom.
I paraphrase but this theme I am finding
in many Orthodox places.
Living in the joy of Christ, of Pascha.
We are always being called away from and out of
despair, acedia, despondancy
in to Christ;
Christ the Living Water of Pentecost.
Lots of thoughts about being at peace by
accepting all things in the day as God's will;
whether in what God allows or in what He directly wills;
it is a mystery but somehow acceptance of the days events
can give peace
when kept with the rememberance of God
and who He is,
His goodness, His desire to save us.
