When we think about something, we are contemplating what to do next, what would be best, what course to follow. Contemplation is a most useful skill to develop, as we usually make the wisest choices from forethought.
Before I go to sleep each night I spend some time as part of my meditation routine reviewing what happened that day, and how I wish to proceed on the issues for the next day.
Keeping a journal is useful
As we contemplate we can take notes on ideas that come to mind. Writing down my ideas in my journal while contemplating helps me evaluate the best course to follow. I look over my notes and decide the pros and cons of each idea before making an important decision.
As we progress in upgrading our consciousness through sticking to the virtues and truths we have decided to follow, we will more quickly be able to make the best decision when called upon to decide spontaneously.
As we upgrade our consciousness
Our conscious decisions
Become more spontaneously for the best.
Time spent in contemplation
Uses our mind optimally
Stirs our thoughts and sifts out the dross
Leaving us with just the right answer.
