In his "100 Gnostic Chapters", Saint Diadochos in the prologue to the book sets out "ten conditions" (or definitions, terms), which are the main points of the book and thus could be said to be the ten conditions of the spiritual life. They are as follows:
Condition 1: Faith. Dispassionate thoughts of God.
Condition 2: Hope. Departure of the mind in love towards the things hoped for.
Condition 3: Patience. To persevere unceasingly, seeing with the eyes of the intellect the invisible as visible.
Condition 4: Freedom from avarice. To want not to have just as someone wants to have.
