Contemplative Monk : Intentional Spirituality Transforms

The Genius of Spiritual Practice

The genius of spiritual practice is that transformation begins right where you are.

Spiritual practice is not about doing anything, it’s about unlocking what already is. Tweet Me 

Spiritual practice is about entering the flow of the creative life of God.

God has already done the impossible heavy lifting. “It is finished.”

Spiritual practice is about entering in.

Designed to Help Us Wake-Up

Spiritual practices are designed to help us to wake-up, to bring us into the here and now…into this present moment.

Like a still point that breaks open into the living present, alive and bursting with that living connective energy, called flow.

Spiritual practice is, in essence, practicing our spirit, and our spirit dwells in the eternal present. Tweet It

Here’s the Hurdle

Our rational mind recoils and revolts at what it can’t get a controlling handle on. So we must set it aside, to wake-up in flow.

Or better yet, tuck our mind into the folds of our heart and practice our spirit, awakening into the eternal living presence of God, sweeping us up into the flow of abundant life.

This is how we seek God through Jesus Christ in a nutshell.

Accessing Radical Grace

The way we awaken is like a billion pixels of still points all around us and they are, every single one of them, the mercy and the grace of God to us through Jesus Christ.

And so we awaken to become…from the very core of our being, the light and the life of God that flows in love, grace, and mercy through us, transforming us from the inside out.

This is how eternal life works in us. This is the incarnational life of Christ in us.

It’s like God creating the universe through us, everything connecting in wholeness, and all we’ve done is to enter the dance.


As Jesus told Martha, I am the resurrection and the life.  Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying, and anyone who lives in me and believes in me will never ever die. Do you believe this?

This is why we practice…to wake-up and to remember.
