The Stranniki (Russian for Runaways or Wanderers) are the strong Pomorsky Old Believers who rejected prayers for Tsar Peter and all government papers (identification, passports, money, etc). They would not wear clothing contrary to Old Orthodox Russia, nor eat with those of contrary Faith and Practice. Keeping themselves separate from the antichrist society they went far into the Siberian wilderness. This blog is about these people and my effort to conform my life to theirs.

The Keys Of Heaven

What has become lost is unreachable to most, the reason is union with this world.

The world does not know how to carry on without itself, so it is stuck in the rut.

Inevitably greater losses will occur, as the only real hope becomes more obscure.

It is all unquestionably suicidal, though most ignore the realities.

Honestly, we only hurt ourselves by avoiding the sufferings of common hardships.

Everywhere there are false notions of goodness, while truth is called a liar.

Solutions are totally missed because the inferior is embraced and accepted.

We should use the key to life of becoming separate, leaving the corpses alone.

In this way we can use other healing keys to solve problems outside paradise.

What we will find is the required peace, being helpful rather than harmful.

Evil is unable to bother those who have such mighty strength.

The real miraculous gifts are still available if we want the one thing needful.

Let us not forsake what is so easily accessible, even though it seems difficult.
