“It is not necessary to roam heaven and earth after God or to send our mind to seek Him in different places. Purify your soul, O son of man, remove from yourself the thought of memories outside of nature; hang the veil of chastity and humility before your impulses. By means of these you will be able to find Him who is within you.”
-Saint Isaac the Syrian, 7th Century Bishop and Theologian
How far have I strayed from my personal relationship with God? What can I do to hang the veil of chastity and humility before my impulses? When was the last time I went to the sacrament of reconciliation?

You have stripped off your old behaviour with your old self, and you have put on a new self which will progress toward true knowledge the more it is renewed in the image of its Creator. -Colossians 3:9-10
