Is the problem eyesight or is the problem vision? Can our realities only extend as far as the eye can see or can our truths extend beyond this point to where our brain can “see?” We are a society that to a large extent places boundaries around tangible pursuits. In part, this structure helps organize behavior so that society has a common path to follow. This simplifies life. For some this is exactly what they want and need from life. For others, it is too confining and limiting. This article is about discovering your needs.
How often do we take the time to introspect and think about our lives and where we fit in the big picture? More importantly, how often do we take the time to plan a course to help achieve our desired outcomes? It is my opinion that many of us use our tangible “eyes” on a daily basis and view our world within the limitations of these physiological structures. This helps us get through the daily activities in life we are “supposed” to do. In practical terms, it helps us accomplish our chores, fulfill our working responsibilities, raise a family and live in a community.
For those seeking these types of goals, our eyes provide us the necessary tools to accomplish these tasks. For those seeking even greater abundance, vision becomes essential. Engaging the brain to “see” a larger map with many more paths that fork creating infinite new pathways becomes a possibility of new realities. As wonderful as these opportunities may sound, these paths offer no guarantees of happiness or fulfillment; they simply offer opportunities beyond that which the physical eye can see and take us. In fact, they likely offer additional challenges since greater decision making skills may be needed without the benefit of prior experience.
Health is part of this perception I like to share with my readers. If we wish to simply use our physical eyes to view this subject, we can review our lab reports and our clinical notes to document good and bad health. If we choose to use our “vision” to “see” our health status, we must go beyond our documentation and explore our senses. Do we “feel” healthy. Have our bodies and minds been satiated with life’s experiences? Have we accepted the reality of lifestyle modifications to maximize our abilities to experience quality living? The depths of our satisfaction from experiencing this type of health becomes endless.
Once again we see there is no right answer. It is simply a perception of life providing alternative thinking about health and how we “see” with our eyes or experience with our brains this new “vision”.
If you have ever wanted to experience a deeper sense of health, look within your soul and your heart for answers. The brain will “see” this “vision” and help you find the multitude of paths necessary to achieve it.
