A way of life


Meditation is constantly showing us how much it is a way of life, not just a way of prayer. And if we are consistently finding ourselves distracted, we may also be being asked to look at some aspects of our lifestyle, some of the ways in which we spend our time, some of the ways in which we encourage this distractedness. “What you want to be like at the time of prayer,” the Desert Fathers used to say, “you should be like that the whole time.” So there’s a question there which everyone has to face and answer for themselves on the kind of life, the kind of habits, that we may have got into.
