But they read on just TRYING to see those things, and then they read
the previous Fathers thoughts and accepted them. Little by little,
after years or decades they started to see more and more. I think,
that's how it was. Two things are involved to see more of divine
wisdom: cleansing the soul from the passions (cleanness of the heart
is required) and keeping reading (practice required).
I think, the Fathers' way is not complicated to undestand. While it
takes God's grace and time to achieve anything, the journey is all
planned, we just have to look at how Fathers did it, and then we go
and try not to divert from it.
