Natural Prayer and Contemplation

November 01st, 2017 by G.

I made a virtue chart of natural prayer and contemplation to see what shook out.

 

Natural prayer and contemplation or quiet receptivity are natural complements in my experience.  But it occurred to me that there was another mode of seeking revelation that was a synthesis of the two.  Study and prayer are both active and quiet/contemplative.  One does not bustle, but as Oliver Cowdery learned, it is not at all passive.  It requires a kind of inner effort.  I believe that Bruce Charlton’s active imagination is this same type of synthesis.
