Does meditation need to be complex?

meditationFrancis of Assisi once said, “It is good to read the testimonies of Scripture; it is good to seek the Lord our God in them. As for me, however, I have already made so much of Scripture my own that I have more than enough to meditate on and turn over in my mind. I need no more . .. I know Christ, the poor crucified One.” This comment resonates with me. My meditations rarely take the Lectio Divina form as memory is often more than enough. The gospel may be hard but it is not terribly complex.
