An ever-flowing torrent

30 November 2019

If we turn our attention to our mind, we’ll see a torrent of successive thoughts and ideas. This torrent is unrelenting, it tumbles quickly in every direction and at every moment- at home, in church, at work, when we’re reading, when we’re talking. Saint Theophan the Recluse writes that we usually call it ‘thought’, but in reality it’s a turbulence within the mind, a scattering, a lack of concentration and attention.
