Devotion is not something that can be practiced.
Devotion is a choiceless response to Self-recognition
that is imposed from within. Devotion is imposed
from the unknown upon the ego and this cannot be
practiced. It can only be experienced. The practice of
devotion is an attempt by the ego through effort to
impose itself upon the unknown. This cannot be done.
Devotion is an imposition from the unknown upon the
ego that is an agonizingly ecstatic and excruciatingly
vulnerable spiritual experience.
Andrew Cohen
From Enlightenment Is a Secret (1991)
