I would say only one thing here. He neglects to warn people on what this will do to their lives. He tells the story of “The Way of the Pilgrim,” which is a great story. But he neglects to reveal the shadow side of this way of life. If you’ve ever read Franny and Zooey by J.D. Salinger, you’ll know exactly what I mean. Franny reads the way of the Pilgrim and begins to practice the prayer of the heart. She soon finds that she is untethered from her previous reality. She sees the world in all its connections, especially its connection to the divine, and is quite undone by the meaninglessness of nearly all of human ego and culture in which she previously participated. She eventually goes mad. This is the reality of the Jesus prayer; not some barefoot monk spinning circles on a mountaintop.
