Clarity and Vision

Clarity and Vision

CLARITY …
… the 1st time this word came to me was back in 2007 at a training retreat for Volunteers of America… one of the coordinators of the event pulled me aside to talk about why i chose this word, and withing seconds I was seriously crying
… she asked me to talk about the image i chose to fit the word and I told her why i had chosen it … she said that all the power to achieve what i saw in that image was inside of me, and when i embrace that power, others like me will be drawn to me and we will grow together…
… 2009 began a great journey with several others who matched what she had said… and there was great growth for all that we touched as a group or solo…
… in 2012 i got the feeling that I was being pulled to do more and grow more, but i wasn’t sure HOW …
TO GAIN CLARITY,
i made a decision to filter out all distractions of any kind 6 months ago b/c I knew big changes were coming and I needed to see what it was and how to approach it …
Now in the midst of the shift, I’m nervous, excited, worried, and yet still certain of what I know is to come because I see its potential unfolding …
… what i’ve learned is, the people you should keep close are those whose presence uplifts you and whom you can uplift in return. We have to be mindful of who we spend our time with because their energy will have an impact on our emotions and our path …
… i’ve also learned that the vision God has for us is something we cannot escape, nor should we want to…

VISION
We cannot escape from the vision God has for us, nor should we want to.

Why is that?

Because His vision is not something He forces us into, it is pure and simply the path of “best fit” for us

Just like when a tree is growing in a forest, it’s branches may spread and grow out in several directions at first,
but then when it finds resistance or struggle b/c the tree next to it is smothering its light,
or a vine has choked one of its main branches,
the tree simply continues its growth in the direction that BEST FITS its success…

so God’s vision for you is actually just the most natural course for WHO YOU ARE, your talents, your attributes,
your passions, and the path that leads to the greatest ultimate benefit for human kind…

All organisms fit into the design of nature and compliment each other.. and so it is the same with humanity
… we are all given certain attributes that can and will effect others … as a species and as a whole creation, we evolve as one … so who you become and who you are is up to you, however, the natural pull of the universe will draw you into the path of least resistance, the path of BEST FIT for you and for all of the Creator’s plan …

So let go, and let it flow … when the Buddhists say that you should release your attachments, they do not mean you should never enjoy the things of this world, what they mean is that you need to understand that you can only maintain the attachments to people and things that are healthy for you and the path you will be led toward …
… if you stubbornly latch onto the things the Creator is trying to remove, you will only make it that much more painful …
… when a parent pulls a splinter out of a child’s hand, it’s not to hurt them, but to remove what will harm them if it stays connected to them… the child will cry out and squirm, but the parent will continue b/c they understand this temporary suffering is worth the peace and comfort that will come after ..
