What will help me to stop loving the world?

“But above all, set Jesus Christ before you and be meditating on the death of Jesus Christ. That’s the great thing that will take the heart from the things of the earth. Be looking upon Christ crucified, how He who was the Lord of heaven and earth put Himself into such a low condition merely to redeem us!”
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.16 For all that is in the world– the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life– is not from the Father but is from the world.17 And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.” (1 John 2:15-17)
