using the art of contemplation for daily reflections
to increase mindful awareness in life…
Why a Wiser Day on Earth?
We believe the true meaning of life is found when coherent intelligence and empathy are at the core of humanity. This is the change we want to see in our world today.
Our mission is to help create a mindful, wiser and kinder world through the art of contemplation.
Founder and author, Aaron John Beth’el believes that contemplation is a rational and enlightened response to the overload of information, confusion, stress and anxiety of modern life that can lead to reduced awareness and intelligence, as well as exploitation of nature and people, which ultimately results in a loss of our humanity and a meaningless life.
With an increased feeling of helplessness, anxiety and depression caused by the many social injustices we witness and experience, it is important that we use various tools to help us stay grounded, calm and respectful when interacting with others, and with ourselves.
Mindful awareness is often missing in the corporate, media and political realms. By implementing a daily reflections routine that involves contemplative thought, you will be able to find wisdom, hope and inspiration to manage many daily challenges.
You can use the app on your iPhone, or iPad, as well as use it on your android device, laptop, desktop or just stay right here on the website.
Find the true meaning of life to create a Wiser Day on Earth
Love is undoubtedly the meeting point, the confluence, the force of convergence and coalescence, and therefore it is likely to be the most adored consciousness, of all of the impressions of infinite expression.
From dream to contemplation
Not long after my father died in 1984, I had a life-changing, lucid dream. In this dream, an illumined teacher showed me how to think, using the art of observation and contemplation based on practical life experiences.
The next morning, I wrote my first contemplation. Since then it has become my customary practice to contemplate, based on whatever inspires me or pushes my buttons. As soon as I arrive at a core realisation, I begin writing. To date, I have written nearly 7000 contemplations.
Later I learned the art of bookbinding from a Master bookbinder, specialising in sixth century Benedictine style bindings. I went on to make as well as publish a number of hand made limited editions of my own written works, which always seemed to focus on “love” as a result of my friend’s question in Kausani, India.
In 2000, I published an artistically illuminated poster on love containing the core elements of what I had learned about love since 1984. Also in 2000, I had a book published of my contemplations by a publishing company in Melbourne. The book was translated and sold in half a dozen countries.
Our deepest truth, appears to be that each of us (behind our earthly human appearance) are highly intelligent, compassionately aware beings, on a mission of love and truth, from the source or centre of the universe, through the centre of our being.
Giving back with gratitude
For us and our members, helping people without one of the basic human needs for survival is not only a right, but an obligation which is why we have decided to give 10% of your subscription to a charity that fights against homelessness.
The next step — which we’re currently taking — is to choose a valuable charity partner. Although homelessness is a global issue, there are many differences across borders.
Since we are located in Australia, we are interested in working with a local or regional partner. As soon as we have a viable collaboration set up, we’ll announce our decision and share information about how we will be working with our partner.
We’re looking forward to helping people find shelter and love and without you, this wouldn’t be possible.
