=How to Achieve Perfection=
[If] we renounce what has already been given us from eagerness for our new attainment, if in reaching the mental life we cast away or belittle the physical life which is our basis, or if we reject the mental and physical in our attraction to the spiritual, we do not fulfil God integrally, nor satisfy the conditions of His self-manifestation.
We do not become perfect, but only shift the field of our imperfection or at most attain a limited altitude. <ref>http://incarnateword.in/cwsa/21/the-destiny-of-the-individual#p9</ref> For this shifting of imperfection to perfection, the first step is to become conscious of yourself, of the different parts of one’s being and their respective activities. For becoming conscious of oneself, one must be quite awake,<ref>http://incarnateword.in/cwm/12/the-science-of-living#p5</ref> in a state of observation of one’s thoughts and actions; becoming clearly aware of these movements, noticing their reaction, impulses etc. With a constant observation and practice, one does not only become a witness of what is happening within them but will also be aware of the origin of these movements.
