Words of Wisdom From the 8th-9th Century
- "Because every thought enters the heart in the form of
a mental image of some sensible object, the blessed light
of the Divinity will illumine the heart only when the heart
is completely empty of everything and so free from all form.
Indeed, this light reveals itself to the pure intellect in
the measure to which the intellect is purged of all concepts."
St. Hesychios the Priest
