compiled by St Nikodimos of the Holy Mountain and St Makarios of Corinth

with the assistance of The Holy Transfiguration Monastery (Brookline), Constantine Cavarnos, Basil Osborne, Norman Russell

Volume III of The Philokalia: The Complete Text

“There is within us, on the noetic plane, a warfare tougher than that on the plane of the senses. The spiritual worker has to press on with his intellect towards the goal (cf. Phil. 3 : 14), in order to enshrine perfectly the remembrance of God in his heart like some pearl or precious stone (cf. Matt. 13 : 44–46). He has to give up everything, imcluding the body, and to disdain this present life, if he wishes to possess God alone in his heart. For the noetic vision of God, the divine Chrysostom has said, can by itself destroy the demonic spirits.”
—“Forty Texts on Watchfulness”
