Some mystical sects, like the Quietists of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries in France and Spain, sought to achieve all through meditation alone but believed the achieving agent was Grace alone, or the Holy Ghost, as they called it. They were more than humble in this matter and thought that they were quite incapable of doing anything by themselves: spiritual growth had to be left entirely to the Spirit.
