On the spiritual life
Our life can be likened to a deep ditch, which in times of rain fills up so much that it cannot be crossed, and at other times it dries up and no water flows in it. The Holy Fathers lauded the life that flows like a small stream which flows continually, never running dry. This small stream is good because it is always easy to cross and because it is pleasing and healthy, its water being good for drinking since it flows peacefully and is never murky.
