I hope you are well in both health and spirit and off to a great start of the new year. Gazing ahead toward the road stretching before us, I’d would like to talk about “Sight and Vision” and dive into what we can expect of the new year as well as what we can expect of ourselves.
To me this year seems different from other years… I think its because the world is spinning much faster than we have ever experienced. The post-pandemic societal and environmental conditions as well as new available technologies force us to adopt many changes in our lives. How we work, communicate, learn, play, shop, and see things are very different from before.
Although we have been accepting such changes and adapting, there is no doubt that it has been extremely stressful and anxiety provoking for many of us. This is largely because, in my opinion, there is no road map that tells us where we are going. We all understand the necessity for change, but we don’t know exactly how things are going to change and cannot see what our future is going to look like. The need to seek out the clarity in what’s going on and a sense of being in control of our own situations is part of our programming as humans, and the uncertainty of the future acts as a blindfold to us right now.
Eye sight is how we perceive nearly 80% of all impressions, it allows us to see colors and shapes, where we are at and understand how things work in the physical world. What it doesn't really do is to give us a true vision. Vision is defined as “a mental image of what the future will or could be like” or “the ability to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom.”
It is a scenery that can only be seen through the lens of our hearts and minds. It may sound simple, but it isn't always easy. Why?
Because in order to see through the lenses of our hearts and minds, we first have to examine ourselves and find out what’s here in our hearts, and know who we really are who has that hearts and minds. And we must be able to answer questions such as “what would be the meaning of my life?” and “what kind of person do I want to become?”. Without answering these questions it would be hard to have vision. And without vision it would be hard to move forward with clarity.
So when you find yourself in a moment of uncertainty, the first step to find a pathway to your future is to take a moment and reflect on yourself, focusing on those questions. When you are able to be in touch with your true self, consciousness and intuitions, you will begin to see glimpses of the lights and the path you’re destined for.
When we become more aware of ourselves and what we are meant to be, suddenly the lens of our hearts and minds become clear. Then the vision now becomes how we see things through. It even allows us to see things that aren’t yet manifested in the physical world.
Vision is ultimately a more powerful guide than a road map because a road map that we can see with our eye is bound by distance, time, and physical measurement, but vision is only bound by our imagination.
There is a famous quote in the book “The Little Prince” by Antione de Sant-Exupery. “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly: what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
What can we expect of the new year and what can we expect of ourselves? Maybe this is the time for us to look into our hearts and minds and see what’s there and take very first steps of a journey that cannot be traced on a road map.
Thank for watching and see you next time!
