Greetings in Christ,
Okay, I have heard it said that one should not read the Philokalia without a spiritual guide. Well, I'm not Orthodox, I don't have a spiritual guide/father, but I do own and read a copy of Volume I of the Philokalia. Am I in serious error here? I find the writings contained in the Philokalia to be very edifying. It provides practical insights that I can integrate into my day-to-day living... But I don't want to be getting into something that's too spiritually deep for someone.
