22 . A change of vision

12 0 0

When the shimmer of the past is melting into the presence, spreading a scent of attentiveness and "inquiringness," our mind may ask for a new reading of the story of our life. An innocuous flicker from a hazy sequence in our memory lane can affect our current awareness, making us raise questions, throwing new light on our expectations; crafting an airy vision of the future.

By recurrently changing the horizon, we can perceive things from another angle, and reorient the perspective of our life. If we can't recast our living, our vision of the world gets rusted, and the squeaking wheel of our mind will suffer from lack of oil.

Without a clear-cut vision and a proper reading of the roadmap, we may not reach the buoyant shores of the horizon. If we only keep looking into the middle distance, we might easily walk straight into the wall.

When people are just drifting along the tides of life and can't see the shores of reality anymore, they may experience someday the irresistible desire for a liberating burst, emerging profoundly from the inner self and disentangling them from their manufactured pattern. That day might be a day of all possibilities and make them ready to hit the ground running.

We can't change things without changing our thinking. As Albert Einstein says: "The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking."
