Deliberate Choice

Ascetic Cave

“Free will is the power of a deiform soul to direct itself by deliberate choice towards whatever it decides. Let us make sure that our soul directs itself deliberately only towards what is good, so that we always consume our remembrance of evil with good thoughts.”

St. Diadochos of Photiki

(from the Philokalia)
