What is contemplation?


What do we mean by contemplation?

We mean to focus our attention on God with us and to immerse ourselves in the beautiful, uplifting Love of the Trinity.

For this we need to allow ourselves time and a space in which to be still and focus innerly, so that we can find our awareness an connection with God. This will become easier over time as we develop the art of contemplation and meditation.

By seeking knowledge and by asking God to help show us His meaning, Wisdom and Intent, we believe it will be revealed in some way. 
God answers us on different levels, depending on how we hear, see, feel, relate to Him. Sometimes, we may want to understand a passage in the Gospel or some situation we are in that does not make full sense or we may need spiritual discernment or an answer to a question we have been pondering. 

Take time to be still with the passage or the issue or the question. 
Ask the Father to pour out His Love upon you. 
Ask the Son to bless you with His Peace not of the world. 
Ask the Spirit to bring you Wisdom, to guide you and reveal to you a deeper understanding. 
This may take time. 
Wait patiently, openly and hopefully. Do not feel discouraged. Just being with God and experiencing the flow of Love between you may be all you need. Or a new insight may be revealed that brings new understanding, strength and clarity of direction or healing.
