The Spiritual Discipline of…Soundness

“I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” -John 10:10

This is the last of my re-mixed spiritual disciplines…I think I may go back to tweak/edit the entries some more in the future. But, for now, it feels fitting to end with something about wholeness…How the abundant life Jesus wants for me isn’t necessarily quantifiable, but thick and rich in other ways. I think themes of stability, integrity, and wholeness are a fitting end as I seek to make real connections between all the needs in my life. How I sleep affects how I eat, how I eat impacts how I sleep, how often I work out affects how I eat, how often I drink impacts how often I work out, and all of this is related to space, silence, and solitude necessary for presence and centered-ness…

I’m thinking and talking in circles. I went with soundness because of the alliteration, but because it also connotes for me something about sound, too…literally listening…I’m thinking of music, specifically, and how it is so important to me, whether it’s listening to tunes on my ipod, or live music, or singing, or maybe teaching myself a new song on the piano. But, throughout all of these disciplines is a call to also listen…listen for the voice of God…and find my anchor and center in her.

The spiritual discipline of soundness…
