“The essence of the Christian life and everything that happens in Christianity is directed towards one goal—to meet Jesus Christ, to get to know Him personally, so that at the Judgment he would not say about me: “I don’t know you”…  Personal relationships have the principle of synergy. I should also look for Him and try to get to know Him. This is what hesychasm is…”
(Archpriest Theodore Gignadze in pravoslavie.ru)
