Thank you so much for this, fantastic post and amazing thoughts. I also really liked the Elder Porphyrios quote and the message he was sharing about trusting God rather than being anxious about the afterlife. However, is it actually right to / do you agree with his statement about not thinking about paradise? I have heard that the highest form of hope is gladly awaiting our eternal friendship with God, and in Mere Christianity C.S. Lewis said, “I must keep alive in myself the desire for my true country, which I small not find until after death… I must make it the main object of my life to press onto that country and help others do the same.” Why then does Porphyrios seem to be saying that not thinking about paradise is a good thing?
