From what I’ve learned as an Orthodox Christian and an Orthodox Alchemist, is that God entered creation; He became an intimate part of it by becoming man so that man could partake of God. With this belief and faith in Him all things are possible. We should invoke His spirit more often, and I’ve written a short invocation for this purpose:
Invoking the Holy Ghost
“Do all things for the Glory of God…”
In the name of the Father of Lights,
the Restoration of Beauty, and the Perfector.
O Sublime Wonder, Ghost of Truth, Spirit of Ecstasies; we invoke Your name and evoke Your presence into this temple. Gather Your energies of the four elements: earth, wind, water, and fire combine, gather Your energies and make them mine, and make them ours for You are all in all and soon will be. Grant us the comfort we desire, peace to our souls, and the courage and patience to get thru any cross(challenge) in this fallen life. We ask you to come and dwell in us and cleanse us from all inner darkness and anxiety, and grant us Your comfort and protection
Don’t worry or be anxious if you don’t feel His presence right away. He’s like a wind that blows where it wants. He comes and goes…
