    An overview of the spiritual discipline of meditation. Spiritual Disciplines: Christian Meditation. Christian Meditation “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. -- Spiritual disciplines, then, are spiritual exercises that one engages in habitually which bring one closer to God and thus become more godly in character and behavior B. EXAMPLES OF SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINES 1. Prayer - in which one spends time talking to God - e.g., Dan ; Co 2. Meditation - in which one contemplates on God’s Word.

    Awareness is just one of the many books I've read recently that have been guiding me in the spiritual disciplines. Anthony De Mello, who wrote Awareness, comes from a Jesuit background, and there are a lot of really good Jesuit books on the spiritual disciplines. One of the best is a very popular book called The Jesuit Guide To Almost Everything by James Martin. Discipline (), discussing the various spiritual disciplines has become a staple element of conservative Christian in-talk in North America. This is a happy thing. The doctrine of the disciplines (Latin disciplinae, meaning “courses of learning and training”) is ix.

    Spiritual Disciplines ÒA discipline is an activity within our power that enables us to accomplish what we cannot do by direct effort.Ó-Dallas Willard There are many different spiritual disciplines that can help us to grow and mature in Christ. The following pages describe many, but not all of the spiritual disciplines . The Spiritual Discipline of meditation is the creation of emotional and spiritual space for God in our lives. In the Christian tradition, the focus of meditation is on the filling of oneself with holy thoughts. It is the intentional giving of one’s time and energy to God. It is a purposeful act of love, worship and devotion.

Here is a thorough book on spiritual wisdom, written in easy English to make it accessible to the general public with spiritual inclinations. The Swami covers way more than meditation- the disciplines of chanting, prayer, rituals, image-worship, self-effort to learn more are all explained well.5/5(1).

Rather than just write about the Puritan form of meditation, this book provides practice through meaningful daily devotions. By the end of the book, after meditating for an entire year, the reader will be trained in one of the most important spiritual disciplines.

The purpose of this book is to recover the lost spiritual discipline of meditation/5(13). A speaker, teacher and spiritual director, she writes primarily about spiritual formation, social justice and living with purposeful intentionality. Her books include Abundant Simplicity, Hearing God Through the Year (editor), Enjoying the Presence of God, and the Spiritual Disciplines /5(2).

Thinking deeply, or meditating, on God is a spiritual discipline that produces joy, peace, love, and other lovely fruits of the Spirit. It leads us out of the dark, stuffy cage of self and into the fresh, green fields of the Shepherd.

But since it doesn’t come naturally, how do we do it. Let me suggest a simple way to get started. This is a collection of essays on spiritual disciplines according to the different Archaryas of various Indian philosophical schools.

Included are articles on specific spiritual practices such as meditation, repetition of the holy name (Japa), prayer, etc.

Teachers discussed include: Sri Shankara, Sri Ramanuja, Sri Madhva, Sri Nimbarka, Sri Vallabha, Sri Chaitanya and Sri Shrikantha. A short. Spiritual Disciplines by Whitney is one of the best books I have read in a long time. It is easy to read, straight forward and to the point, and covers topics every Christian needs to know.

This book has been the inspiration I needed to do what I should have been doing all s:   This book is excellent, and very encouraging in a practical way. It not only explains many of the most common spiritual disciplines, but warns of the pitfalls and gives practical guidance for how to practice them.

I recommend this book more than any other that I've read. Richard Foster is Reviews: K. The implication is that if we neglect the spiritual discipline of meeting together, we will miss out on encouragement and grow weary in doing good for the Lord. In other words, attending church and other gatherings of believers should be high on our priority list.

As Donald Whitney puts it in his book Spiritual Disciplines For The Christian Life. Rather, it is unhurried meditation on gospel truths and the exposing of our minds to these truths that yields the fruit of sanctified character” (quoted in Whitney, Spiritual Disciplines, 55).

Meditation plants the truth of God’s Word deep into our souls so that we are genuinely changed and enabled to walk in faith and obedience. Spiritual Disciplines: Study, Meditation, and Memorization To grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ we must practice the disciplines of studying, meditating on, and memorizing God's Word.

But that takes desire. We make time for what we most value. So if we're going to grow in this discipline, we need to grow our desire for God's Word. We need to. I hope you enjoy this update blog from my first month of practicing the spiritual disciplines. The Discipline of Meditation Since my goal here is not to teach you out of Celebration of Discipline, but to simply share my experience, I will briefly describe a few of the main points that stood out to me as I read.

Meditation and other spiritual disciplines. [Swahānanda, Swami.]. Given the purpose of the spiritual discipline of study outlined above, not all books and articles are obviously suited for the task. Religious scriptures are the most natural source of fodder for spiritual study, and adherents of many faiths will typically say they are.

The biblical name for this art is meditation, which Don Whitney defines as “deep thinking on the truths and spiritual realities revealed in Scripture for the purposes of understanding, application, and prayer” (Spiritual Disciplines, 46).

And it is a marvelous means of God’s grace in the Christian life. Meditation Made Christian. The way we approach the Bible affects our interaction with God. Learning to immerse ourselves in God’s thoughts through study and meditation allows us to go deeper into God’s Word and live in a more Christlike way.
