Three Planes of Contemplation
Contemplation has a trinary base. It works on the mental, emotional, physical plane. We focus our mind deeply into information. Then we gradually open the second layer – the emotional aspect which is connected to our heart and sharing with others. While we can walk through the mental aspect of contemplation in solitude, the emotional one is connected with others. It is about our relationships. iIf we stay on the mental level, the contemplation will not go further. It will be just an additional toy for the mind: yes, it will be tasty but as a matter of fact, it will be useless and will not bring any satisfaction. Emotional aspect is concerned with our feelings, and it’s on this level we start to remember at the DNA level who we really are. This memory comes up on the surface not at the mental level but at the level of the feelings, emotions. The power of heart and mind joined together is the essence of contemplation.
When awareness dawns upon our body through sensing, we might feel discomfort because very often the first thing we come across on the emotional level is our pain, our shadow side, our victimless. That’s where we can find the real treasure. While we continue diving deeper into contemplation, we reach the physical level, the deepest one.
