Practising Dying

A Contemplative Spirituality

Authentic spirituality in our materialistic world, Laurence Freeman says, must involve the practice of dying to our egotism. In the gospel, and by his life, Jesus taught that ‘anyone who wants to be a follower of mine must leave self behind, take up his cross daily, and follow me.’ To do that, we need a spiritual practice that we can integrate into our life and that enables our life itself to become a commitment to this ideal. Laurence Freeman explains Christian meditation as a simple practice that takes us beyond our ego, beyond ‘my prayer’ into the prayer of Christ which energises, and transforms us. The practice of Christian meditation is a way of practising dying to self. Our focus shifts from self-fixation to other-centredness, and in the process we learn love as the meaning of life.
