24 - Contemplative Depths
The contemplative bias in development entails a continual training in non-attachment.

So - therefore as long as any possessive element remains - one will experience the need to keep withdrawing further from involvement with phenomena. For those who have a particularly sensitive temperament, this drive towards pure non-attachment may entail continual deepening throughout one’s life in contemplative awareness with very little corresponding engagement in worldly matters.

Radial development therefore requires a certain mastery of contemplation (unique for each individual) thus creating sufficient freedom for re-immersion in active affairs (without undue attachment arising).

In the lives of its great practitioners - because of the contemplative depths already attained - such activity can be invested with a superhuman energy leading to a remarkably creative and productive commitment for others in society.
