The reality of transcendent spiritual prayer is actualized by exercising our whole self in its pursuit.  We work at the spiritual life just as we work in all other parts of life.

Self abnegation is the beginning of the journey of spiritual prayer.  It is the recognition of our limitations while, at the same time, it is the affirmation of the enormous potential of our spiritual nature. 

The human person is more than so much weight of aging flesh, a processs that begins to die as soon as we are born.  Rather, we are spiritual beings incarnated in bodies of flesh and limited within the confines of time and space.  All of which is good because it is the way by which we can learn of ourselves.  Instead of dis embodied spirits, you and I are created with this wonderfully sensational body and this equally marvelous mind.  We ourselves are created but we are also given the gift of creation.  We are creators. 

Sadly, we are also destroyers. 

Religion was instituted for our good because it seeks to encourage and empower the creative and discourage and eradicate the destructive.
