This book describes the purpose of life on earth: how humanity descended from higher realms into the confined life of incarnation on earth to obtain experience and achieve greater being. The search for the Light, the miracles performed by the great initiates, the secret of health and radiant being, the way of service and brotherhoods, and the continuation of life in the hereafter, are all part of the subject matter of this book.
What's the secret to living a spiritual life? Living a disciplined life, according to Henri Nouwen.
In the spiritual life, discipline requires conscious effort to keep every area of life from being filled - it means creating space for God. Nouwen identifies 3 essential disciplines for maintaining a life of discipleship: solitude, community, and ministry.
This encouraging, insightful book inspires readers to practice all 3 disciplines. The result, Nouwen promises, is a fruitful, Spirit-filled life.
