“A disciple should always carry
the memory of God within.
For it is written:
You shall love the Lord your God
with all your heart.
You should not only love the Lord
when entering into the place of prayer
but should also remember him with deep desire
when you walk or speak to others
or take your meals.
For scripture also says: Where your heart is,
there also is your treasure;
and surely, wherever a person’s heart is given,
wherever their deepest desire draws them,
this is indeed their god.
If a disciple’s heart always longs for God,
then God will surely be the Lord of the heart.”
(Makarios the Great, The Book of Mystical Chapters, p. 21-22)
