He next false start when going down errors

 And as himself
Barlaam, without prior repentance, saw visions of the devil, so people

exposed to the confusion by promoting every heresy and error along with the
Orthodoxy, unable to discern what is of God and what is imitation
made from evil. Some even think that they can use
eastern exercises (such as yoga, meditation, etc.) together with the Orthodox

crowds of people running to acquire spiritual experiences where there is only the
pernicious imitation of true experiences, induced spiritual wickedness that
They appear as angels of light or imitators of the divine glory. The elder had Sophrony
many true divine light experiences, and other contemporary elders like
