FROM BISHOP MAXIM
A Spirit of Thanksgiving
You realize that you are in the midst of the mystery of life which has been bestowed upon you. You give thanks for that mystery. You do not arrogate it to yourself, because in that case you lose it.
If in a spirit of thanksgiving you give this mystery freely to others, as it was given freely to you, then you save your soul and preserve it unto life eternal by losing and sacrificing your life in that way.
You have to come out of the shell of your own self-love. To cease wanting anything for yourself. To say: I have greater trust in You who brought me into life than in myself. To You I abandon all my life and my hope. I am not telling You what to do. I am telling You to do what You want. For You brought me into life without my saying anything – since I did not yet exist. Now I dare to give everything, even my life, to You who bestowed it on me.
(Archimandrite Vasileios of Iveron)
