Ephraim the Syrian: “Here within are the riches of heaven, if you desire them.”

Dover Beach

Ephraim the Syrian

“Here within are the riches of heaven, if you desire them. Here O sinner, is the kingdom of God within you. Enter into yourself, seek more eagerly and you will find it without great travail. Outside you is death, and the door to death is sin. Enter within yourself and remain in your heart, for there is God.”
– St Ephraim the Syrian
