Troubled waters to touch,
Essence of likeness,
A mirror to truth grows in the heart of courage.
There is so much movement with the turning of tides that brought us the Year of 2020. The number 2020 always makes me think of eye examinations and having perfect vision or at least striving for perfect vision. I anticipated a visionary year with a new decade and new possibilities for living. Somehow things have been swept away by the tides and there is so much uncertainty in the air. Collectively this is the most trying of times in the history of our modern world as we know it. Systems are breaking down, people are breaking down and life as we know it seems gone forever. It feels like a never ending spiral sometimes and not knowing where to turn or what to say or even what to do for the best.
However, whenever there is a breakdown there is also a breakthrough and the bigger the breakdowns, the bigger the breakthroughs. This is the natural cycle of life itself and it can offer us so much if we can tune into the wisdom and find the courage to continue on this turbulent journey. I don’t know what lies ahead and I can’t say I have all the answers. I only have myself and a heart full of courage which wants to keep walking no matter what life wants to throw at me. I think sometimes in life we can feel like we have to have all the answers and to know what comes next but life doesn’t always work out that way as we have seen recently.
“Create the highest grandest vision possible for your life,
because you become what you believe.”
When we go the opticians for our eye examinations, the aim is for that perfect vision. To reach the perfection that is 2020. If we can’t see 2020 clearly, then we may need aids in the forms of contact lenses or glasses. We may need to make several adjustments until we can see where we are walking towards and get it right. To see is a gift but vision goes deeper than what the eyes can see. Having vision is seeing clearly with your heart. It is the lens of truth. It beats and pumps blood around your body. It keeps you alive. It keeps you well. It keeps you into the reality of what you can create which is bigger than our current circumstances. I always have to remember that and not allow current circumstances to dictate my future. Your vision can be what you want it to be. Your life can be what you want it to be and there are plenty of tools out there that can help with this. This will be different for everybody and as they say, variety is the spice of life. The most important thing is to never stop or give up. Always have hope for your beautiful beating heart. You are alive and by being who you are, you gift the world with the sheer presence of You.
Love and blessings,
