The acute experience of ontological gap between the created world and the God between earthly and heavenly is replaced by Arsenyev’s sense of finding his own path of man carrying the cross and his adoption “crosses of the God given to person”. It is shown in the article based on K. Saizev’s work and using criterion’s of character’s and author’s clerical and spiritual experience. The author of the article substantiates that one of the key themes in describing character’s life is the topic of sleeping and wakefulness. That is interpreted in context of spiritual perspective. It is organically included in the topic of character’s “wandering” in “hermeneutic circle” in his definitives of phenomena person’s life as a whole.
