Required reading for those walking the spiritual path, Gerald Heard's Training for the Life of the Spirit methodically outlines the entire course of the aspirant's journey. Heard provides a time-tested roadmap for the wayfarer: "There is a purpose in evolutionto evolve consciously, to evolve consciousness. That evolution is achieved only by the skilled, conscious training of our spirits." The aspirant works to subdue their ego: "For in so far as we are emptied of self, so far are we freed from accident. Our habit patterns, our moods...our natures can be reconditioned, re-freed. We will be inwardly reunited, our fissured selves re-fused."

 

Training for the Life of the Spirit contains Gerald Heard's essential observation: "Our whole life must become intentional and purposive, instead of a series of irrelevant events, adventures, and accidents, happy or unhappy."
