Not by bread alone....

I do try.
I am making a real effort to pray the Office of Readings every morning.
But.... sometimes, too much of the time, maybe even most of the time, I find myself reading for information instead of praying.
I'm wondering if lectio divina is like diet, and if there aren't simply some people who, by temperament or metabolism, are more suited to grazing and snacking for purposes of ingesting nourishment.
(Not to say that I'm any better at regulating my diet with an eye toward nutrition....)
