A Recovery Of Inner Paradise. - Poem by Dr. Antony Theodore

A return to the desert,
the peace of a wilderness existence,
is a recovery of inner paradise.

By this transformation, the monk
comes to be moulded into
the image of God.

For him monasticism
is a spiritual baptism
by which his desire to be
with the Spirit of The Almighty
is satisfied to a great extent.

    Anything that is in contradiction to the human nature can not be something that God needs from us. God wants us to be moderate so that this beautiful world made by Him may run smoothly. One's outer world is a reflection of his inner world. If we can reflect a paradise definitely there is a paradise in our inner world. (Report) Reply
