In its former place1 July 2017
According to the spiritual judgement of our Fathers, all human activity derives from the mind. This is where an image is made of every notion, which then, gradually, proceeds to its practical application. The misuse or abuse of things follows the wrong use of concepts. Repentance in the real sense means the mind’s return to its former position, where the proper order of things is to be found. In our own times, however, repentance is taken more to mean asking forgiveness of God for our transgressions.
