“Let us maintain an attentiveness which keeps our body in permanent tension. Thanks to this tension, even when we sleep we can bear in mind the aim of our life. Prayer can penetrate as far as what psychologists call the subconscious. A true ascetic keeps control over what happens in himself at all times, even during sleep. If bad thoughts arise, he gets up and prays. Thus, little by little, our conscience will illuminate everything we do in daily life." - Archimandrite Sophrony of Essex
