Contemplation or Meditation
March 12, 2016
Sex and love are as different as is a crossword puzzle from an an empty cup. The mind can contemplate that difference, but when in a state of love or meditation there can very well be a space where neither is necessary or able to come to the bliss and joy of the empty feeling of being full of meditation. Contemplate that if you like, but doing it avoids love or meditation. Both contemplation or meditation are states of being in, one with a clicking mind, the other the silence of the clicking mind. One is looking for an answer, the other just is and not seeking.
Meditating is a tool for the breaking down the walls of thinking or the walking away from thoughts to a place of just being. The busy mind, is a useful tool but less so if it has no breaks or brakes to stop and just being void of all desires, and things of the world not necessary as needs. You can have sex while ‘contemplating’ but when deep love is filling the emptiness of thoughts, one is in a meditation.
A meditating tool box has many varied meditation tool techniques to arrive at an empty tool box of the mind, or otherwise known as a meditative state. A contemplative tool box is always full with the puzzle pieces to think and analyze or contemplate to arrive at answers to questions. Both can be done alone or used in conjunction with another. Love too is an alone journey, but is like playing tennis, best done with a partner as a ‘tool’ to both open the heart and demonstrate the extent of love unencumbered within. Be an entrepreneur of love for that is where the real riches are!
Nothing lasts forever, it has been said, but your state of being that you arrive at, be it ‘unfinished love’ or a symphony of deep love within, once arrived at, is what you carry from moment to moment. Like riding a bicycle, you never forget how to ride it! Meditation can crack the so called sound barrier of everlasting bliss and joy as well as you are able to reach the breaking of the sound or light barrier with letting go of all barriers of prior negative conditioning. Contemplation is to study all the ways in the mind’s locker room to play a sport, but first it’s best to feel the overwhelming energy to study the ways. Contemplation of the stars is from the ground on a clear night. Meditation is the clear night to be among the stars! Contemplation is of the mind that’s limited looking for solutions or questions. Meditation and/or love is to be empty but bathed in a void of a warm inner bliss where answers or questions disappear!
