Contemplation is one of the pillars of sophrology and I would say that it is also a state experienced by all those who enter meditative states, mindfulness, and who dedicate moments to being, beyond doing. This contemplation is the acceptance of external reality in a phenomenological way, without judgement. Merely the awareness of being aware of something. Buddhist meditation practices include this contemplation which, when we are in nature, is so pleasurable and profound.
In my personal experience, during periods or moments when I feel aligned with myself, when my body, mind and soul are in harmony, I feel that contemplation has a place in my daily life. From observing a landscape, to admiring a detail in an object, appreciating a scent or a sound, I contemplate, admire and marvel. Contemplation is part of the awareness of my daily well-being.
