Original sin, widely denied today, is nevertheless the condition in which our spiritual life begins. Fetal psychology helps one see original sin as a psychic negation of the created reflections in Christ of the traits of divine love within the Trinity. Hence, only through Christ can such damage be healed. But before we can live in the full freedom and power of the Holy Spirit, we must relive, in Jesus and as He did, all that God led His people through, from the fall of Adam till Jesus' death and resurrection. Through the "spiritual sense" of the Old Testament, each word of which speaks of Jesus, we learn how to do this. The loss of this sense, embedded in the doctrine and practice of the much maligned "institutional Church" but forgotten by most Christians, explains the chasm that has opened between the intellectual life of the West and the spiritual life of Christians.

In attempting to more effectively communicate the principles of spiritual life to those who sincerely desire a deeper reality in their walk with Christ, I have discovered that most people appreciate practical and straightforward instructions, and this is especially true when it involves the mystical nature of spiritual life. Although spiritual life is not meritoriously attained through natural means or human effort, there are several "Practical Steps" that can be taken to help facilitate the practice of spiritual disciplines. The combination of these "Practical Steps" with the spiritual disciplines themselves will work to promote a dynamic life of faith that will effectively bring the believer into a productive and rewarding relationship with God. "Man is an intentional creation of divine wisdom explicitly designed to fulfill a sacred purpose" "Agape love requires a soul to empty the wealth of its humanity upon the altar of God as a willing sacrifice" "If determination is to live up to its potential in promoting the spiritual life ..., it must be united with some very fundamental practical steps" "Heaven should not be a "culture shock" to the consciousness of the believer; it should be a gradual final step into the glorious reality of a spiritual life whose progress began at conversion" "Divine pleasure must be the goal of human effort, not divine favor" "The genuineness of what we actually believe is nowhere so obviously exposed as in our daily schedules" "It does not take overtly carnal acts to corrupt the days of a man's life, for inattention and idleness produce the same result as evil actions or wicked intentions" "Liberty must always precede service if either are to be authentic" "It is our great love for the Father, not our initial desire for salvation, that motivates and liberates the sincere believer to live a life of chosen obedience to God"

This volume collects works on spiritual life of the most influential religious writers of the Middle Ages. The Canons following the Rule of St Augustine at St Victor in Paris were some of the most influential religious writers of the Middle Ages. They combined exegesis and spiritual teaching in a theology that was deeply rooted in tradition but also attuned to current developments in the schools of Paris. This selection of their writings on the spiritual life is divided into three sections. The first presents three works by Achard and Richard which treat the development of Christian life from the beginnings of conversion to the perfection of love and contemplation. Prayer, meditation and the gifts of the Holy Spirit are the subjects of the works by Hugh and Richard included in the second section. The final section presents poetical, exegetical and homiletic works honoring Mary by Hugh, Adam, Richard, Godfrey, and Walter. This rich and representative sampling of Victorine works is a clear window into a world that still has much to offer modern readers.-- Publisher description.

Excerpt from Masters of the Spiritual Life This little book aims at quickening personal religion by recalling the lessons in the spiritual life which some of the great Masters of Devotion have left to us in their lives and in their writings. Next to the Bible itself, the lives of the Saints and their written counsel are the surest guides to holiness. Their experience is always an inspiration. Their counsel never grows old. But they are often too little known. This book is meant to be a simple introduction to the study of some of their writings which are most accessible. In each chapter the same plan has been followed. After a short account of the spirit of the age in which they lived, comes a short biography, and then an outline of the chief characteristics of their teaching, with brief quotations from their books. It is hoped that in this way these treasures of devotion, which have nourished the spiritual life of the faithful in other ages, may be made to contribute more fully to the quickening and enrichment of our own religious life to-day.

An explanation is provided for our creation, spiritual reality and purpose in life. Out of body experiences during near death experiences indicate that our consciousness exists independently of the body. It implies that we are part of and created by God's consciousness. Our spirituality and soul are a part of his consciousness. Hence, we are spiritual beings living a mortal life. Due to our free will, we can make good and bad choices. Our purpose on earth is to test and develop our spiritual and moral worth, in order to become worthy of God's love. In effect, our life on earth is a morality play. On earth, we live in a one dimensional system called time. When we pass over after the demise of our body, we remain as part of God's consciousness. At that time, we live in a three dimensional system consisting of the past, present and future. We will review our former life on earth, judge our behavior, and feel the pain that we may have caused others.
