on the road to perfection

Here is a post discussing Moses on True Perfection and below a quote on the road to perfection:

"We understand the "way" [Jn. 14:6] to be the road to perfection, advancing in order step by step through the words of righteousness and the illumination of knowledge, always yearning for that which lies ahead and straining toward the last mile, until we reach that blessed end, the knowledge of God, with which the Lord blesses those who believe in him. For truly our Lord is a good way, a straight road with no confusing forks or turns, leading us directly to the Father. For 'no one comes to the Father,' he says, 'except through me.' Such is our way up to God through his Son." (St. Basil the Great, On the Holy Spirit 8.18; cited in ACCS IVb, p. 124)
