Too often the archaic wording has interfered with the message but I don't think that will happen here. Read and be blessed by this humble servant's secrets to a rich spiritual life in God's prescence whether doing dishes, changing diapers, surrounded by noise, or immersed in any daily chore -- for it all can bring glory to God.
I was tempted to emulate Brother L, but that would've made a religion out of this and defeat the purpose. Instead, again, the Practice is simply, to practice.
Brother L found his relationship with his God. I will, too, through simplicity and wholehearted practice. Brother L was himself before God. I can be who I am before my Creator. There, maybe I'll find my path, my practice, establish my footing, and begin with my first steps.
word of this work. Brother Lawrence wants to share with and show the reader not only how beneficial Christian meditation is but how to gain the presence of God in daily life. If you are anything of a mystical Christian this very short work will speak volumes. This book is so beautifully translated into modern english that any enquiring soul can benefit by reading this book. Enjoy.
This translation includes all of the original text and maxims, and is true to the original American paper edition from 1895 (which I have).
