Summary/Abstract: To be more precise, the incongruity and the inconsistence between the Haideger’s thought on the existence and the Orthodox teaching on the uncreated blessing will be mentioned. The Orthodox doctrine is thoroughly presented and perfectly expressed in the work „Thriads, vindicating the people of the sacred silence“ from the Athonite hieromonk and, later, Thessalonian archbishop St. Gregory Palama, and in this form it /the doctrine/ has been unconditionally accepted by the Orthodox Church (and by the author of this writing as well). So these are the title and the subject of the present research work. But let us tell you in advance: this research work is unsuspectible to the facilitations of the unbelief, but not to the unbelievers – because, if we take Paskal at his word that those people who search God are unhappy, then the believers’ words about the divine illumination are not for the happy ones.
