The essential disciplines of the spiritual life of all faiths, including traditional Christianity. An important introduction to a life of Prayer & Meditation, herein, the author discusses the history and roots of Prayer & Meditation, with the purpose of developing a greater understanding of what prayer means, along with insights concerning the traditional approach to prayer: including techniques and traditional practises that have the power to enhance our prayer-life.

Spiritualise Your Life – What Every Christian Should Know, by Allan Armstrong, describes how over the centuries many different systems of of meditation have emerged, many of which are based on the premise that the discursive activities of the mind may be brought to a standstill by focussing the attention on one subject to the exclusion of all others, thereby revealing the true and permanent reality underpinning all things. Although this premise is essentially true, a common mistake is made by some of those engaging in traditional meditation in assuming that one should avoid trying to think when meditating, but trying not to think is like trying not to breathe, almost impossible. The truth is, and it is a truth that has long been understood in the precincts of the sanctuary, that there is a point in the cycle of meditation when the discursive activities of the mind pause or cease, but it is a place one arrives at, not a place one starts from.
The main theme of Spiritualise Your Life – What Every Christian Should Know. As the title declares, is what we as individuals can do to enhance the spiritual aspect of our lives. It is divided into two parts. The first part of the book explores the frequently misunderstood practice of meditation; focusing upon organising the processes that enable the student to engage with the interior life. It is concerned with:
a) developing an understanding of the biological factors that stand in the way of our ability to meditate,
b) provides simple guidelines that enable us to recognise, understand and overcome the obstacles that confront our endeavours.
The second part of Spiritualise Your Life – What Every Christian Should Know, is concerned with the central role of prayer in the life of people. Herein, the author discusses the history and roots of Prayer & Meditation, with the purpose of developing a greater understanding of what prayer means. It also introduces and discusses insights concerning the traditional approach to prayer: including techniques and traditional practises that have the power to enhance our prayer-life, such as Lectio Divina and Devotio Moderna.
