Here’s a link to a little book that had quite an influence on me as I was beginning my spiritual journey as a Christian, some three and a half decades ago. Watchman Nee uses the language he learned from extremely conservative fundamentalist Christians to describe spiritual phenomena which, I am more and more convinced, are not limited to adherents of any single belief system. Now my particular understanding of Christianity is that it also is not so limited, so I remain quite comfortable with Nee’s vocabulary, inasmuch as I continue to call myself a Christian. I don’t think Nee thought of himself as a mystic by any means, and certainly not as an occultist. But the principles he expresses in this little book reflect observations of human life and interaction that I think people of many persuasions, or mayhap of no persuasion, might find helpful.
