See our disclaimer. One of his "spiritual children", Nicholas Motovilov, wrote most of what we know about him today.
Perhaps Seraphim's most popular quotation amongst Orthodox believers is "Acquire a peaceful spirit, and thousands around you will be saved. On Acquisition of the Holy Spirit - eBook.

And the sin of man, the rebellion against God, to use New Testament language, it is a quenching of the Spirit, a grieving of the Spirit, an outrage of the Spirit. They choose themselves, and they choose their own ways, and their own minds against the Spirit of God forever.
There are demons who can forever blaspheme God. In Ephesians: Do not grieve the Spirit. In [the] Hebrews letter it speaks about grieving and outraging the Spirit. Jesus speaks about blaspheming the Spirit. Now, we Christians also believe that the Lord God almighty knew that we would blow it from the beginning. The Lord God knew that humanity would turn to the serpent, would turn to the devil, that we would choose darkness. The Christian document, The Didache , in early Christianity, I think second century, maybe third, quotes that very line: Choose life. Choose light, not darkness.
Acquisition of the Holy Spirit in Ancient Russia
Choose God, not demons. But we have that before us. What we have to do is to be constantly striving and begging God to empower us to choose life, the life-creating Spirit. We are not born in Paradise. We pray that all the evil spirits will depart from this creature. Well, we do all that because we believe that being born into this world we are somehow in the hands of the prince of this world. And we must reject that; we must turn and give ourselves to Christ.
Do you believe in Christ? Do you accept him as your Lord and your God?
The Acquisition of the Holy Spirit | Fr Peter's Reflections
The Spirit of God, the Spirit of Christ, is given to us. Now when we look at Jesus himself we have to remember that Jesus is the Christ because the Holy Spirit dwells upon him. Even in his humanity, the holy Fathers like Athanasius and St. Irenaus, and all of them actually, they all say that Jesus had to be baptized in the Jordan river by John because, as a human being, he had to receive the Holy Spirit just like we do.
That the Holy Spirit came upon his mother Mary so that he could be conceived and born. We say, following St. Isaiah the prophet says the Spirit of the Lord is upon me to go proclaim the Gospel: the Spirit of Wisdom and Council and Understanding. And in St. My works are done by the Spirit. Everything that I am, everything I do, is by the Spirit of God. Now, Jesus had no sin. And in the letter to the Hebrews it even says explicitly that Jesus was led to the Cross by the Holy Spirit; that the Holy Spirit inspires him as the Messiah to voluntarily give himself over unto death for the life of the world.
He accepts the will of God, his Father.
The Holy Spirit that was in him when he finally dies, he gives it over to us, and then we can live by the Holy Spirit because he died and gave himself over unto death, to demolish death and to fulfill all righteousness and to save the world. And the salvation of the world is, again, giving the personal gift of the personal Holy Spirit to human persons. All over our body, the Holy Spirit is poured out upon us. The word for gifts of the Holy Spirit is charismata. All these have the same root, the same word in them in Greek. The Spirit himself is given as a gift personally to those who are baptized into Christ so that then we are finally achieving what we were created to be from the very beginning.
And he put on that distortion on all his children. We are all children of that Adam, sons of man. But in Christ we become sons of God, and then we become real human beings. Well, of course the Holy Spirit acts wherever he wills. It says in Scripture, the Holy Spirit blows where he wills and is not given by measure.
But the distinction is always made that in the Christ and in Church, we receive, not the powers of the Holy Spirit or the activities of the Holy Spirit or the gifts of the Spirit only, we are given the gift of the Spirit himself.
Conversation with Motovilov
We are to live by the Holy Spirit himself. This is certainly the Christian conviction, that we are to have and to live by the Spirit of God, what St. Paul calls the law, the nomos , of the Holy Spirit of life.
And not the law of sin and death. And, by the way, that law is called in the Bible also the Law of God. And this is a very important point. Paul says in the Corinthian letter that where the Holy Spirit is there is eleftheria , there is freedom. So the Spirit of God makes us free. In St.
I will not leave you orphans. And the Holy Spirit will bring to remembrance everything that I have taught you. And the Holy Spirit will guide you into all truth.
