When you talk about devotional practices that you've done, what specific actions do you mean?
Thanks, I needed this one today. I've been thinking about similar ideas and I'm glad to take some inspiration from you and James. The other thing that "devotional productivity" reminds me of is the Bhagavad Gita. Specifically, the idea of doing your dharma but giving up attachment to the results of your actions or labor. This is mostly related to taking the "me" out of it and the idea of seva or selfless service.
