Why More Are Not Involved With Contemplation

It is all about choice and this is why more are not involved with contemplation.
Theological reflection (contemplation) on the word without the accompanying readiness for repentance is bound to lead to a heightening of the existenial contradiction; many Christians are aware of this and consequently, if they have decided that they are not going to make any decisive changes for the better in their lives, they are honest (in a way) in leaving contemplation alone.
 - Hans Urs von Balthasar from his book Prayer
