He is getting into a subject that is near and dear to my heart. Our Lord went into the desert and if we are to imitate him, so must we. We all need to set some time aside to "walk" into the desert by first making time to be in silence. In today's age, that means shutting everything off for periods of time. When you attempt this the first time, you might find that the appetite to know what is going on during every waking hour is an appetite in need of taming. If you don't control it, it controls you. I think Anthony Lilles offers some excellent foundation in this article.
I think I'll go tame that appetite for a while as I work. Time in silence, is time that can be spent with the Lord.
