Quote from http://dafyomireview.com/mesilat.php

The Mesilat Yesharim by Master Kabalist Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzato (1707-1746) is probably the most popular mussar (ethics) work in Jewish literature.
Rabbi Eliyahu of Vilna (1720–1797), one of the most authoritative Torah sages of the modern era as well as a great Kabalist himself, said after reading the Mesilat Yesharim, that were Rabbi Luzzato still alive, he would have walked by foot from Vilna to Italy to learn from him. He stated that having read the work, the first ten chapters contained not a superfluous word.

Rabbi Elyon Shemesh

Prayer, Torah and fixing your Midot .
Not changing who you are but to improve the balance in your measurements.
