The grace of God will give us true humility and true repentance. It’ll grant us every possible virtue. But, on our behalf, we need to become humble, we need to repent and strongly wish to move on. Let this be how we start, get along and reach the end of our path.
Love is what most of all releases man from the old man and his ego. Love means sacrifice. Love means crossing out our ego.
We should have the feeling, the understanding and faith that, if something happens in our soul, if we get a hint of salvation, it will be done by God, not by man.
Once you become humble, once you repent, salvation comes.
