I have been spending the better part of this year trying to figure out what that phrase (pursuing christ-likeness) really means, and how it applies to my life. I have been working on the silence and solitude aspect a lot this year, with mixed results. I find that the more I do it, the more time I spend with God, the more time I want to spend in that state. Which is very cool, but at the same time I know that Christ spent a lot of time with people, in fellowship, and in relationships. I begin to wonder, is there a “happy” balance between to two, or if you should just go with the flow, which sometimes leaves the other one lacking. What are your thoughts?
