HOW to BE HAPPY with what you have | A story of thankfulness | Saint Paisios #shorts

“Geronda, I worry because I have many health problems… I do not sense Heaven within me now. You do not sense Heaven because you do not glorify God. When one moves within the realm of doxology, he rejoices about everything. There are lay people in the world who will judge us monastics. You should see how the Bedouins suffer, and yet are thankful to God and happy. Instead of cleaning the wheat entirely to remove every little stone, they grind it into flour as it is, with the little stones – and their bread is rock-hard! And, apparently, their food does not contain the necessary nutrients, such as calcium, and so their teeth are entirely destroyed. And, yet, one sees Bedouins with one single tooth, who rejoice as if that single tooth was made of pearl. And here, if one has one tooth missing, he feels deficient. With all that you hear, you should constantly be moving within the realm of praise and doxology; praise God for His benefactions day and night.”
