I seem to have come down with a spiritual illness. Don’t quite know where it came from, but I have a couple ideas. I’ve tried to resume my spiritual life a couple times, at full strength, and have been set back farther than before.
Which was my mistake. When you’re sick, you don’t go out to an all-you-can-eat steak buffet. When you’re spiritually sick, the deep theological treatises make your eyes cross (i.e. ‘cognitive ethology’).
Stepping back. Resting. Softer, simpler food of the psalms and Gospel. There’s no rushing healing.
