Obscured by a sense of foreboding,
we so often don’t see what’s in front of us,
clarity so blurred by expectations,
the biases of our collective experience and beliefs.
This human propensity is the legacy
of the process of logical thought
and also fear, built into our psyche
creating walls of security that can inhibit.
This tunnel vision has dire consequence,
as our perception is skewed,
and the ensuing circumstances based on untruths
far from what we want.
Clarity is attained in a neutral field,
one without the effects of past
or the anxiety of present or future,
a field from where reality can be observed
The fact that most human beings
live in the shadow of this reality,
gives rise to the understanding of the consequences
that occur because of expectations.
By treating each circumstance in life anew,
we overcome any biases or beliefs that inhibit,
thus giving us a better chance of understanding
and facing the challenges that confront us.
By relying on past experience and belief,
we just recreate the same problems as in the past,
thus stagnating our lives
and prohibiting the positive changes that could evolve.
As life moves we are presented with opportunities
that without a clear and unbiased mind
would surely be lost to repetition
and those familiar circumstances that keep us still.
So many people live lives like a broken record,
repeating the same mistakes over and over,
because out of fear or belief thy will not see the truth,
rather a fashioned truth based on past.
Shed the predilections and beliefs,
for they stifle life and inhibit progress;
each day accept circumstances in the newness of clarity
and life will change for the better.
