It will be a great help

"towards (the holy spirit of freedom)
if we keep constantly in our thoughts
the vanity of all things
and the rapidity with which they pass away,
so that we may withdraw our affections
from things which are so trivial
and fix them
upon what will never come to an end.
from The Way of Perfection, Chapter 10
by St. Teresa of Avila
