“As much the man becomes spiritual, as fewer rights he has in this earthly life. He’s obliged to endure, to receive the injustice, to receive the poor (evil) words from others. A scoundrel (perverted man) who lives far away from God has more civil rights: to attack others, to scream to others and to act unfairly to the others. God keeps our rights for our second life. And, though we know this, we often look for our rights here. Let’s stop spoiling the matters, even in bits and pieces.” (Elder Paisios from the Mount of Athos)
