True Repentance

True repentance isn't hanging on to one's present way of life and the world with one hand and reaching toward God with the other; it is letting go of the world and that way of life that one may fully and completely embrace God only. This type of repentance isn't a one-time act, but a daily, continual, deliberate, and life-long practice.

"A monk is he who directs his gaze towards God alone, and who, being at peace with God, becomes a source of peace for others." -  St. Theodore the Studite
