Change breeds zeal. You are trying to say the prayer [that] you have begun, and if you see that boredom, fatigue, sleep, and other disturbance are coming at that time, I must force myself. And if they can't even force it, [they have to] change. If I read the Psalms, boredom comes, thoughts come, I leave and read a sheet, or half a sheet from another book. And if you see that even so, you go outside, that is, [in] the outside air you can still do it, it's easier. But, let me tell you, it's a great misfortune with this passion of insensibility. Insensitivity should disappear.

Look how, in that hermitage, there was a madman at the Sihla hermitage. And that madman was asking me some questions. And when I was cooking, he would say, "It's not complete yet." He was asking me other questions. "Well, that's not complete either." And when I went to work there and saw him, I remembered that I was...

He was asking me other questions. "Well, that's not complete either." And when I went to work there and saw him, I remembered that I was not complete. Do you know why he said that? To teach me humility. To see, am I not worried that "it's not complete"? But I noticed, the monk or the brother, when he goes to the monastery, he goes like a brick. The brick has corners. And sitting there, at the monastery, the corners blunt. And someone asked me, "When did they blunt?" When he mocked you and you didn't bother anymore. Then the corners blunted. But to know that it has great significance, when a monk came to cleanse his heart of the Holy Spirit, is of great value. Because as we do not talk to our thoughts as we say prayer, then we are resting the Holy Spirit in our hearts.
