I’m playing catch-up again tonight! Here’s a late post with the prompt from yesterday…
The act of asking questions is the beginning of contemplation. When I contemplate, I ask questions of myself, of the world and of God. . . Questions that don’t always have to have an answer. . . Questions that make me think beyond my daily concerns.
Contemplation is my soul searching, my mind seeking, my heart longing for something beyond myself.
I ask life’s philosophical questions. I ask practical and pragmatic questions. I sit and think and wonder and listen.
Contemplation requires asking. It also requires silence and time away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. It requires an attitude of openness and of focus.
Asking questions leaves me vulnerable. Contemplation is not a proud occupation. It is humble. Contemplation acknowledges my smallness, my lack of knowledge, my need for the One Who Knows.
In contemplation I find peace, resting in the fact that I belong to the God who has all the answers to anything I ask.
