Excited to hear how this journey goes for you Ryan! I have really enjoyed starting and ending my prayer times with silence, simply resting with God. One temptation I’ve run into is wanting to come away with insights or new takeaways every morning instead of just abiding, which I think is a classic Western lens of wanting everything to be “productive” in order to have meaning. I like that you’ve called out that contemplative practices are an emphasis on God rather than on our own efforts — I think that helps!
