Sudden repentance and Gradual repentance, Part II


[continuing from yesterday]

"There is also gradual repentance, not a flash of lightning inside converting him from the depths of evil to the good, but rather a feeling that one needs to improvied his ways, the paths of his life, his desires, his thoughts. He walks this path and conquers, little by little, the ways of righteousness. He mends his traits, improves his deeds, and teaches himself how to improve to greater and greater extents, until he achieves a great level of purification and correction."
