Inner peace: recollection/self-possession
Good points but:
In our Tradition there is no such thing as fallen nature. There are fallen persons, but not fallen nature.
It seems hard to me to go in this direction without turning Pelagian; chances are it all goes over my head and maybe I don’t need to know it. But doesn’t Orthodoxy also teach that the fall affected all of creation? Sounds like original sin by another name.

From Metropolitan Jonah via Fr Stephen via Joe Rawls.
