The word “practice” does not have the same meaning as practicing a sport or routine to perform at peak level. The practice of mindful Christianity and contemplative prayer is the discipline of energizing our minds to be present in an instant and to have the awareness that God is with us now. It is the practice of being aware of Christ’s presence living in us and connected with every facet of our lives.
The practice of mindful Christianity understands the flesh and the ego desire to control every aspect of our lives through our thoughts. It also comprehends we cannot force ourselves to change our behavior. There’s no way to will your mind to be relaxed and calm.
