      Personally I find the following quote/essay
      dead-on and simple in pointing out what one must awaken
      to and address if he is to discover and develop the
      spiritual life. <br><br>"How rare is the person who has
      continuity with regard to his consciousness of himself. As a
      rule, men are conscious only momentarily, conscious in
      the midst of big decisions, but they do not take
      their daily every day events into account at all; they
      are spirit of sorts for an hour one day a week-which
      of course, is a rather crude way to be spirit. But
      eternity is the essential continuity and demands this of a
      person or that he be conscious as spirit and have faith.
      The sinner, however, is so much in the power of sin
      that he has no idea of its wholly encompassing nature,
      that he is lost and on the way to destruction. He
      takes into account only each particular new sin that
      seems to give him impetus on the road to destruction,
      just as if he were not proceeding along that way the
      moment before with all the impetus of his previous sins.
      Sin has become so natural to him, or sin has become
      so much his second nature, that he finds his daily
      everyday life to be entirely in order, and he pauses only
      for a moment each time he perceives new impetus, so
      to speak, from the new sin. In his lostness, he is
      blind to the fact that his life has the continuity of
      sin instead of the essential continuity of the
      eternal through being before God in faith." Kierkegaard
