The Search for Stillness…

“…to keep curious people away, I painted a skull and cross bones on the rocks with some green all based paint. What time a German tourist want to come up to the sale. He thought it was a minefield because of the sign, but it looked like she knew about them so he went up to the top watching where he stepped. I was watching him from above. Then I went to the cave of a saint and pulled a thorny bush across the entrance behind me. He looked hard, but he couldn’t find me a went back down the hill.”
Elder Paisios
~Elder Paisios of Mount Athos

Be still and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
Psalms 46:10
