Without leisure, contemplation, reflection, and worship, society is impoverished. Aristotle commended those who dared to shift the practice of their vocation so they had space to step back and reflect; he named them vital for society. Leisure alone can sustain the wisdom we need. Hence the necessity of contemplation, rapt attentiveness, living in the present.  It's a path too few really try; they assume it's too difficult. It is difficult, but the best things come only to those who dare. There is an inner geography of utter freedom. Find it.

There's a glorious desolation of your falsehoods and attachments that comes with this abandonment.

Here, in this sheer nothingness and the absolute vulnerability of prayer, God comes and fills the yielded vessel with divine love and wisdom.
