Saint Symeon the New Theologian Quote – “The more a man enters the light of understanding…”

The more a man enters the light of understanding, the more aware he is of his own ignorance. And when the light reveals itself fully and unites with him and draws him into itself, so that he finds himself alone in a sea of light, then he is emptied of all knowledge and immersed in absolute unknowing.

Saint Symeon the New Theologian (949 – 1022)
