Contemplation Before Meditation

Contemplation is a way to mentally houseclean from the day's activities, and prepares the space in thought for tomorrow's unseen situations. As part of meditation it clears issues before settling into quiet time.

We can also contemplate on qualities we wish to develop in ourselves. By assessing the pros and cons about a quality, we can determine if it will uplift our lives through making us a more conscious person while becoming aware of the greater plan for our life. We attain a more universal overview of life.

Contemplation serves as a clearinghouse

Contemplation serves as a clearinghouse in our mind. We bring out a situation for review, process it, and then pass it on into usefulness or discard it as unusable for us. Or maybe send it back into our memory storage to be brought forward at another time.

Contemplation also buys time to think over and digest new ideas that may come from outside sources, other people or the media. Contemplation gives us the time to allow a good solution to come to mind.

If we are in a hurry or pressured to make a decision quickly, we might not instantly come up with the most useful answer. But if we instead say "I'll think that over and let you know later" - tomorrow or next week or whatever future date we choose, then our mind will have time to digest, mull over the situation, and come up with the most workable solution.

I invite you to join me in a daily group cyber meditation for personal and planetary peace. Click the article here to read about it.
