A world within a world

Venerable Nilus the Faster of Sinai

You are a world within a world: look within yourself, and see there the whole creation. Do not look at exterior things, but turn all your attention to that which lies within. Gather together your whole mind within the intellectual treasure-house of your soul, and make ready for the Lord a shrine free from images.
