Willard has said that almost anything can be a spiritual discipline and that it’s important to find practices that actual help us disengage from the world/culture/self and engage the kingdom of God. He writes somewhere about there not being an exact and final list of practices but how we need to be creative and find ones that actually will be helpful in our real life contexts.

The scripture also helps me remember that the point of lectio divina is not to do the lectio divina; that is, I am not there to serve it. Rather, it is there to serve me, to help me disconnect (from the world) and reconnect (to God).
