Contemplation is a way to learn the will of the Divine in our life. It is a way of listening to the part of ourselves that knows everything we need to be thinking about for our lives right now.

As a method of guidance, contemplation assists us to navigate unfamiliar territories when our old ways no longer serve us. Contemplation can be a compass for your conduct. It is a tool for keeping us on track.

More than anything, contemplation is training for your intuition. Intuition is the language of the Soul. Your Soul can be a teacher and a source of great guidance, if you take the time to listen.

The truth is inside each of us and that truth is our Soul. When we contemplate we address the Knowing Self within. Contemplation puts you in touch with your own inner guidance, the part of you that knows everything you need to know for now.

Be mindful to what appears in these moments, nothing is too insignificant to be disregarded. Look for clues nudging you towards timely, correct action. Live life in your “true present”, break the momentum of brain chatter and find your course of action in the stillness.

Take heart and remember, when it comes to living a spiritual life, we are always at the beginning. During deep contemplation you bypass the restrictions of reason and fetter out the conditioning of old habits. For the moments you are interacting with the Divine, you are declaring your life is malleable and open to change.

With daily practice of contemplation, you will begin to hear beautifully useful messages from your Knowing Self. Each message is an act of God addressing His own.
