Because We Are Not A Contemplative Society …
Because we are not a contemplative society,
we will remain separated by opinions, beliefs and judgements.
To be contemplative is to rest in deep, long reflection,
rather than rehearsed opinions.
To contemplate, we do not take sides.
We have an overall view,
being neither averse to change
nor holding on to traditional ideas.
To be contemplative is to be wise.
Pure wisdom is the uncontaminated knowingness of consciousness,
What do contemplatives do when they meet?
They nod in recognition, and smile.
