“Meditation – or Contemplation?”

In my meditation, I was given the thought to instead call it contemplation.

The con- is from the Indo-European root KOM, together, and -templation from TEM, to cut, hence Latin templum, “a space cut out or reserved for observing auguries.” Thus our word temple.

I imagine being in my meditation space, this temple, together with my spirit guides.  Within our temple.

There I contemplate.
