I really think, one day- I will like writing blogs. It gives me a chance, to think and convey information in a different format, than I am use to. Once it is written, it is permanent, till I try to correct it and fix the spelling, make real sentences-(I try) Writing helps to create clarity.
Clarity is the divine gift of knowing clearly. I like clarity, it allows for ease of flow. There is no need to guess. If you have clear thoughts on direction or clear thoughts on how something needs to be done, there are no questions.
However, as we all know clarity is not easily achieved for a lot of reasons, none good or bad or right or wrong. We are all 100% unique- I understand things my way and you understand your way- that means we need different techniques, to make things clear. Our schools are finally adapting to this profound idea and realizing Johnny is an auditory learner and Sally, she is a tactile learner. When I went to school, if you found a subject confusing or the teacher, was not getting you to understand, what they were saying, you were just dumb. (My Gosh, she is an educated teacher) If the teacher said it, we had to believe it. I remember some pretty bad teacher, I am sure, we all do.
Educated, does not make you good bad right or wrong – just that you completed and educational experience. I feel, it is in every person’s best interest, to be educated to their highest level of ability. The ability to provide clarity, does seem to come easier to people, who through education have been taught analytical abilities, for problem solving, it does not guarantee clarity. I have met some of the smartest people, that have no common sense – we all have.
I have a great ability to stay on a path, when the path is clear. I really flounder, in choice because the results are different and one choice may lead to a less desirable out come. That was the old me. When, I saw things, as lacking clarity- I put things, to the test with the clear five basics- good, bad, right, wrong, and sometimes- In my years of life, I learned that usually worked for me – I use a different method, to find clarity now – I just listen!
Yes, I said listen, to the still voice within and I don’t judge the decision, I just trust and experience the outcome and if I don’t like the outcome, I know I can choose differently next time. We are here to learn from our choices- even the ones, with the not desired results. Everyone has to make choices and clarity helps us to make choices that are better. Telling a child “no” gives no clarity to an action-it needs more clarity, without more clarity the understanding is lost, that is why “no” does not work.
Now, I hope you’re seeing why clarity is so important. In trusting and following God there are many choices and lots of lack of clarity – Just like when you follow the direction, to put the new bookcase together- the directions are all right there –how hard can it be –how could there be more pieces, than you need-how can you not find clarity. It is easy to get confused, finding clarity may take time, it took me years to find clarity to end, some of my less desirable out comes. People can tell you, but until the small still voice within, is activated and wants to hear, clarity can be lost. So if people keep saying I told you that. You may not know a method to find clarity.
It is not taught often. My method goes something like this, feel free to adapt, this to how you feel, will help you on finding clarity. First, I always come from the choice-seeking in my best and highest interests,with divine love, goodness, kindness or helpfulness etc. I then ground my energy. I usually, close my eyes and imagine, I am a tree with roots deep and wide, deep and wide, deep and wide. I have no fear –if I feel fear, I send it to the roots or towards the sky and ask the fear to leave me, having the earth cleanse it or I send it to the light of God- then in the silence and peace of the moment I pray –dear father I need clarity, help me – and I just listen.
This method was taught to me and I have taught it to others- it works for me and has worked for others. Do you hear a voice? You might hear, the Christ within, all of us. You may get a feeling but surely you will get a knowing . Don’t judge, trust in faith and whatever the result, know, it is in your best and highest interest. Remember God wills us all, “his divine perfect happiness” and if you walk with God and allow God to work through you, there is never a mistake.
Be Love Always.
