"we should, I believe, distrust states of mind which turn our attention upon ourselves. Even at our sins we sh ould look no longer than is necessary to know and to repent them; and our virtues or progress (if any) are certainly a dangerous object of contemplation. When the sun is vertically above a man he casts no shadow: similarly when we have come to the Divine meridian our spiritual shadow (that is, our consciousness of self) will vanish. One will thus in asense be almost nothing: a room to be filled by God and our blessed fellow creatures, who in their turn are rooms we help to fill." -C.S. Lewis
