Practicing the method of contemplation is a beneficial practice that can allow room for a deeper understanding of ourselves and how we relate to others. For it is in that stillness that we enter the silence so we can really hear.
When we quiet our thoughts we can find comfort in that stillness. Its there where humanity can connect with a power greater than we are, God aka Yahweh, Yah, The creator of all life. For some this divine spiritual practice of contemplation provides a trans-formative peaceful state as they join themselves in love to Love itself within.
In world when all sorts of chaos can scream for our attention we can become comfortable with being uncomfortably stressed. Yet, the practice of Contemplation can assist us in our spiritual growth so we can impact our world physically in a calm, thoughtful, and highly productive way.
From one minute to two hours silent contemplation can be done anywhere at anytime and hopefully more of us join this contemplation challenge with a fervent appreciation of its benefits.
In dedication to the whole concept of contemplation below is a list of the ten most amazing photos that best showcase this potential appearance of silent contemplation.

“Life is an experimental journey undertaken involuntarily. It is a journey of the spirit through the material world and, since it is the spirit that travels, it is the spirit that is experienced. That is why there exist contemplative souls who have lived more intensely, more widely, more tumultuously than others who have lived their lives purely externally.”
― Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet
