Pondering is becoming a lost art. The pace of the planet keeps pulling us along at a speed that few can keep up with. Rapid changes in technology, social values, and cultural processing force us to spend more time adjusting to changes than to considering them in any real detail and depth. If the so-called advancements to humanity continue at their current rate, thinking may become obsolete. It has already become optional for millions of people.
Pondering links to meditation; meditation links to contemplation; and contemplation links to thinking. Each of those terms has at its base the principle of thinking things through – giving our attention through thought.
Selah…Pause and Consider.
