What do you think this means here?

On ne peut éviter avec précaution

Context: Bonheur d'une ame religieuse dépend de son union avec Dieu. On ne peut éviter avec trop de précaution tout
ce qui pourrait y mettre obstacle.

Does this mean that one can not afford being too cautious as this can be an obstacle?

    One should carefully avoid anything which may interfere with (which may be an obstacle to) a religious soul's union with God

    For a more literal translation:
    One can't be too careful to avoid / in avoiding
    I.e. it is so important that even the greatest degree of care is not excessive.
