The spiritual life, according to Evelyn Underhill

Read Psalm 146

Evelyn Underhill, in her book The Spiritual Life, writes this: “[A] spiritual life is a life which is controlled by a gradually developing sense of the Eternal, of God and his transcendent reality: an increasing capacity for him, so that our relation to God becomes the chief thing about us, exceeding and also conditioning our relationship with each other…For, what it means for us is surely this: that we are meant, beyond the physical, to contribute to, indeed collaborate in, God’s spiritual creation.”
