This reminds me of a desert father speaking about beginning anew.

The pious and necessary practice of making a perfect act of Contrition (pray to God for the grace of it) after becoming aware of any sin whatsoever -- resolving again, and starting anew again.

And that one cannot only do this every day, but one can do this every moment. And in this way make progress and keep purity of conscience and intention and..

I found the quote comforting, reassuring.
Sometimes one almost feels discouraged.
We are so sinful. Sad

"There are those who seek knowledge for the sake of knowledge; that is curiosity.
There are those who seek knowledge to be known by others; that is vanity.
There are those who seek knowledge in order to serve; that is love."

'Why does the teacher say that the flesh is a "cloud" and a "veil"? Because he knows that every human intellect has transgressed and deviated from its natural motion, and that it now moves amid passions, sensations, and sense-perceptible things, having nowhere else to be moved, for it has utterly gone astray from the motion that naturally carries it along to God. Knowing this, he divided the flesh into passion and sensation, describing both parts of the ensouled flesh as a "cloud and a "veil." For the fleshly passion that hangs darkly over the governing faculty of the soul is indeed a kind of cloud and what is the deception of the senses if not a veil, confining the soul to surface appearance and impeding its passage to intelligible reality? Such a soul consequently becomes oblivious to the things that are naturally good and turns and invests all its energy solely into what can be perceived by the senses, and so discovers angry passions, desires, and unseemly pleasures.'

“God freely created us so that we might know, love, and serve him in this life and be happy with him forever. God's purpose in creating us is to draw forth from us a response of love and service here on earth, so that we may attain our goal of everlasting happiness with him in heaven.
All the things in this world are gifts of God, created for us, to be the means by which we can come to know him better, love him more surely, and serve him more faithfully.
As a result, we ought to appreciate and use these gifts of God insofar as they help us toward our goal of loving service and union with God. But insofar as any created things hinder our progress toward our goal, we ought to let them go.”
