CONTEMPLATE



Plotinus, perhaps the greatest of the Neo-Platonic philosophers, in personifying Nature said: “I do not argue, I contemplate; and as I contemplate, I let fall the forms of my thought.” This is the manner in which Nature creates—It contemplates.  As a result of Its contemplation, It lets fall the seed of Its thought into the Universal Subjective which, being Law, produces the object thought about.—Ernest Holmes

I observe in my mind a beautiful pink rose.  I look at it from every angle and I see all of the different shapes it takes as I turn it.  I look at its petals and I notice lots of different shades of pink in the light and shadows.  Its fragrance touches my heart, as I contemplate God’s Grace in a small aspect of Nature.
