Do not abandon the invocation (adh-dhikr) because you do not feel the Presence of Allah therein. For your forgetfulness of the invocation of Him is worse than your forgetfulness in the invocation of Him. Perhaps He will take you from an invocation with forgetfulness (ghafla) to one with vigilance (yaqadha), and from one with Presence of Allah to one wherein everything but the Invoked (al-Madhkoor) is absent. "And that is not difficult for Allah." [Quran 14:20]
Chapter 4, 47,  Ibn Ata'illah, Kitabul Hikam
