Patristic Wisdom

[The Will is] a natural force which tends toward that which is conformed to nature, a power which embraces all the essential properties of nature.--St. Maximos the Confessor

Thus, according to Lossky (Mystical Theology of the Eastern Church), freedom of choice is an indication of the imperfection of man, a limitation of our true freedom since perfect nature goes towards what is good naturally.
