Our attention is not to be on anything we can do but rather, we are to be quiet and let the Lord act in us. "Forget everything in order to live only in Jesus and with Jesus." There is a danger in speaking about perfection as it fuels pride. Instead, "cast off all that remains for the old creature, which is forever incapable of being sacrificed and consecrated to the Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ."
Our minds should not be focused on ourselves but "The eyes of our soul should be constantly turned toward this dear Master, and our soul should tend toward Him alone."
