A book to help Christian readers awaken their hearts to a deepened spiritual perception of the world by reclaiming the practices of our Wisdom tradition. The author introduces the idea of a three-centered knowing: a way of looking at the world with the heart (this mystical, spiritual vision) in conjunction with the mind (rational) and body (physical). The goal is to see beyond the physical and rational aspects of our selfhood and to the inner quality of aliveness that the mind alone cannot perceive. This depth of perception gives us a grounded, sustaining vision for our life's purpose and meaning, and helps us to sacrifice the artificial (and therefore limiting) parts of ourselves and yield to the wholeness of the divine will. With vivid stories and examples, the author illustrates spiritual concepts of vision, sacrifice, and transformation, In a final chapter, she provides tools, ideas, and practical advice for developing Wisdom practices and nurturing visionary seeing. Most books on this kind of mystical spiritual vision are either based on personal experience, or new-age philosophies, or come from Jewish, Sufi, or Buddhist mystical traditions. Where Our True Heart Lies is the only book to locate the ancient and precise Wisdom tradition firmly within the Christian heritage and helps Christians see how it fits within their theology.
