Spirituality is a whole-life practice

Dallas Willard

Much modern thinking views spirituality as simply a kind of “interiority”—the idea that there is an inside to the human being, and that this is the place where contact is made with the transcendental. In this view, spirituality is essentially a human dimension. Christian spirituality is centered in the idea of a transcendent life—“being born from above,” as the New Testament puts it. This idea of spiritual life carries with it notions like accountability, judgment, the need for justice, and so on. These concepts are less popular, and they certainly are more difficult, than a conception of spirituality that simply focuses on one’s inner life.
