Question for Leo: Is it really necessary to contemplate?

11 posts in this topic

Like, I have a thought in mind and I want some answer on this one. You know we are all different and also different of how we want to live, our Personality, our Values are different, our Passion is different from one another, is Contemplation really absolute among people given our differences? Contemplation is necessary regardless if I want adventure rather than thinking inside my room? Hmmm?

Contemplation is a tool you use to get certain results. If you want different results from what contemplation can get you, then you use other tools.

The only issue with anything is lack of balance. If you overdo contemplation you will have analysis paralysis. This is because you have deluded yourself that you can know what to do absolutely/100 percent predict the future. You don't. Your whole life is just an educated guess.


You are a selfless LACK OF APPEARANCE, that CONSTRUCTS AN APPEARANCE. But that appearance can disappear and reappear and we call that change, we call it time, we call it space, we call it distance, we call distinctness, we call it other. But notice...this appearance, is a SELF. A SELF IS A CONSTRUCTION!!! 

So if you want to know the TRUTH OF THE CONSTRUCTION. Just deconstruct the construction!!!! No point in playing these mind games!!! No point in creating needless complexity!!! The truth of what you are is a BLANK!!!! A selfless awareness....then that means there is NO OTHER, and everything you have ever perceived was JUST AN APPEARANCE, A MIRAGE, AN ILLUSION, IMAGINARY. 

Everything that appears....appears out of a lack of appearance/void/no-thing, non-sense (can't be sensed because there is nothing to sense). That is what you are, and what arises...is made of that. So nonexistence, arises/creates existence. And thus everything is solved.

Yes it is,without your own contemplation(thinking for yourself) you cant live your truth and if you cant live your truth you cant find happiness,fullfilment and all that good stuff...

Even all the understanding that you get from videos came from your own understanding through contemplation otherwise there cant be no growth...you will just know how to recite the knowledge which is usually a trap in self development...

Who teaches us whats real and how to laugh at lies? Who decides why we live and what we'll die to defend?Who chain us? And who holds the Key that can set us free? 

It's you.

You have all the weapons you need 

Now fight.

Probably the single most vital thing in life/awakening is to contemplate. You will get no where without it.

You live however you want, that's what you'll do anyway. In any case, contemplation is fundamental, it isn't thinking although thinking will occur. It is setting out to experience what's true, an essential tool for discovery. Study, contemplation and practice are foundational for any multi-dimensional pursuit.

It's wondering, opening up your body-mind in order to have insights and breakthroughs into the nature of things. It's perhaps about being silent, "waiting", allowing what's true to come to you, so to speak.

Any experience can be contemplated as it is lived. For example, have fun and ask yourself what fun is.

@John Iverson Often through contemplation you can give structure to all of the dots you already have in your mind. All of your experience, which is unique, when contemplated upon, may result in insights that could greatly improve your life.

Contemplation is just focused thinking on a question/topic. It was never implied for the results to be the same for everybody.

What you originally come up with through contemplation will stick to your memory much deeper than what you hear or read. So there's an advantage in terms of learning.

And finally, (although I'm not going into every advantage of the practice, nor into the spiritual field where I have no experience), contemplation fosters creativity and original thinking, compared to making assumptions blindly. Understanding will be much greater

Minfulness + Experience and then contemplation = Speedrunning development

Contemplation is  a tool for deep understanding.

You could go through life without deep understanding, but I  wouldn't recommend it.

I find it surprising how easy I reach good and original insights, when I allow my mind to contemplate.

This is wonderful that we all have this potential within ourselves to access higher wisdom when we allow it.

Contemplate why you should contemplate haha 

Contemplate why you should contemplate why you should contemplate why you should contemplate. This is what happens when the mind gets bored. I should go contemplate.


Thought = Time. Without thought there's no time. Death is the end of the illusion.
