The times in which live are making it more difficult for us as a collective to see. There is a constant stream of shortage, sickness, racial tensions, and fear that is being fed to us no matter where we turn. In spite of the events that are surrounding us, there is always an opportunity to seize hope and peace of mind. In order to find our way, we must develop clarity of vision.
Seeing Through The Fog
Fog is a very disruptive element in our lives when we are trying to navigate any path. When you don’t have clarity of vision, life is like a very dense fog that settles on top of you and it permeates your surroundings. We get engulfed in our problems, it causes our attitudes to shift in a negative way and we find ourselves making a lot of detours instead of moving directly towards our life’s goals and dreams.
The Importance Of Having A Vision
In order to move in any direction, you must know where we are going, how you will get there and be able to recognize when you have arrived. When we develop a vision for ourselves, it enables us to align with our life’s purpose and equips us to make the proper adjustments to be able to properly navigate the journey.
When we don’t have a vision for ourselves, we are exposed to whatever life brings our way and we have a tendency to attach ourselves to someone else’s aspirations and dreams rather than fulfilling our own. Instead of seeing the solutions that we bring to things that trouble us, we succumb and become victims of circumstance.
We are all born for a reason and we come equipped with talents, skills, and the ability to solve problems in a unique way. If we connect to our purpose, we can become a solution to removing the fog and providing clarity for ourselves and others. Making this connection enables us to develop a crystal clear vision.
Insight Before Clear Sight
To begin the process of discovering our purpose and developing a vision, we must have insight. Insight is the ability to gain an accurate and intuitive understanding of a situation. To get insight, we must look within. We must remove our attention and observation from external circumstances, quiet our minds from the constant negative stream, and reflect on what we sense on the inside. Like any seed, we contain within ourselves every resource we need in order to grow and develop into what we are meant to become. To facilitate growth, we must create a vision and give it the proper environment and nourishment that will sustain it.
Adjust Your Vision With Foresight
Once you look within, you will begin to see the things that resonate with your life’s meaning. Looking within will rekindle the dreams that are meant for you and give you the inspiration to pursue them. After you reconnect with the thoughts, intuitions, and desires that live within, you will begin to have foresight.
Foresight enables you to see into the future, which will give you the ability to take the necessary steps towards your vision. You will begin to notice intuitive hints that provide a course of action that you can take to get ahead. When we are blinded by the fog of life, we don’t know what we need to do and instead of making decisions, we become stuck and immobile. We lose our confidence and we become reliant upon the guidance of others to help us find our way. Foresight will provide further clarity, focus, and guidance on the path towards our purpose.
Remove Hindsight To See Ahead
A car has rear-view mirrors that allow us to safely make adjustments when we are on the highway. They keep us from creating an accident by allowing us to see what may be around us and to discern when it’s safe to switch lanes. In terms of our lives, we should only look behind us in an effort to learn from the past.
To develop a clear vision, it’s vital to only look to the past for guidance and instructions which allow you to make proper decisions moving ahead. Allow those moments to be brief reflections that you can glean insight from and adjust yourself accordingly. If you stay focused on what’s behind you, you can never move forward and you set yourself up for creating major accidents! Look within, gain clarity of vision, and move forward through the fog to a bright future.
