St Theophan the Recluse
When we are Purified
from the grievous passions
through continuous Repentance-Confession,
our heart and soul is freely able
to fulfil the Will of God
But the more we permit those passions
to act within us -
when we allow the selfish desires of our flesh
to control us,
and to dominate our immortal soul –
we condemn and endanger ourselves
with general instability and insecurity.
