A monk asked the starets saying :
`Whom is it due to ask about thoughts and is it good to ask about the same thoughts another father confessor ?`
The elder answered :
`It is good to ask that one you have faith in and about whom you found out that he can bear thoughts and it is right to have faith in him as in God. To ask another one about the same thought is a proof of faithlessness and inveiglement.
If you believe that God spoke through his holy man what is the need for tempting God with the same and ask another?`
