Sometimes when seeing something from afar we can dismiss its importance to us. Perhaps we are unable to understand how this or that could have any influence over our life from such a distance. Indeed from afar numerous things seem inconsequential.
Yet if we think about many great inventions we take for granted today, it is perceivable their inventors had the capacity to pull out their creation from a vision in their mind. From afar these pioneers in various fields captured an idea other people may have seen, but had failed to comprehend.
However, in a similar way we have the ability to tap into our inner wisdom, a knowledge possibly coming from the depth of time. This source from afar is ours to use according to our values, aligned to our best intentions.
As with any issue regarding our progress through life, the way forward is personal and its relevance to us conceivably beyond our capability to express it in words. All the same, we hold onto an objective even if its existence is barely visible from afar, trusting it will be part of our future.
Two crucial elements in the process of reaching our goals are i) belief in our goals and ii) confidence in our ability to reach them. These things help us to go out and succeed in our efforts.
From afar this is quite likely evident to us. Getting up closer to the question we might begin to doubt ourselves. At this point the motivation which started us on this path will play a key role in moving us forward.
