Origin of quote: “If you wish to speak or hear about God, renounce your own body…”
I've been reading Orthodox Dogmatic Theology by Protopresbyter Michael Pomazansky and encountered this quote attributed to St. Basil the Great:
If you wish to speak or hear about God, renounce your own body,
renounce your bodily senses, pass over the seasons of the year, their
orderly arrangements, the adornments of the earth; stand above the
ether, traverse the stars, their splendor, grandeur, the profit which
they provide for the whole world, their good order, brightness,
arrangement, movement, and the bond or distance between them. Having
passed through all this in your mind, go about heaven and, standing
above it, with your thought alone, observe the beauties which are

It appears that this quote is from a Homily by St. Basil titled On Faith, specifically Fide 1, which can be found in the larger work On Christina Doctrine and Practice.
