Grab your notebook and a pen, your coffee or tea. Take a seat outside, in your room, or wherever you can find some space.
Contemplation is the art of being present without being lost in thought. It is more about listening than thinking. Sometimes though, you just need to let your thoughts rain down on paper so that the skies of your mind can clear.
Invite yourself to rest on the page. Sit in receptive, open presence. Listen. Open your senses. Open your heart.
Here is a seed to contemplate this weekend:
We all like having a map showing where we are, where we want to go and the way to get there, but don't be so focused on the map that you miss the world as it is right in front of you.
Spend some time in contemplation. Journal to yourself. If there is something you want to share, share it on your blog or just hit reply and write back to me.
