「深思細想」"Take and Read"
"Spirituality has become for many people a pleasingly undemanding alternative to religion. Religion is all to do with people in black suits telling you what to do, spirituality is all about discovering your own genius. What I’m suspicious of in the spiritual is not the lack of structure and authority, but sometimes the lack of community, shared perspective, and intelligent interaction. Spiritual well-being, like other kinds of health, is about life-giving relationships.
The word ‘spirit’ in Christian scripture is almost always used in connection with connection, communion, koinonia – the common enterprise. The spirit unites us in understanding and compassion. Any notion of spirituality other than that might risk pushing us back towards that idea of health and well-being which I began dismantling – a purely individual state of equilibrium rather than an ecology of life-giving relationships.
Spiritual well-being will have something to do with finding those contexts, those communities, those disciplines, that are capable of challenging the fantasies and myths that are pushed at us. The spiritual is always going to be about challenging idols and images. Evagrius says the whole process of growing to maturity involves pushing through images to something deeper, whether that’s images of yourself or God.
A very significant part of that is finding communities where those practices are shared and you can be held to account, and people can push back in regard to your goals, your aims and self-image...."
