On occasions it takes just a second to connect with an idea or sought-after solution shining through the clouds of confusion.
When focused on a goal and guarding our senses from being distracted by unimportant issues, appreciating what is shining through adds to the moment. However, if we are wrapped up in thoughts about yesterday or fears concerning tomorrow, we may miss what the universe has to offer us.
Appreciating the answers to our questions are actually already to be found in the heart, would lead us to accepting that what is actually shining through is merely the inner light reflecting outwards. A simple example can illustrate this point.
If we were faced with two similarly interesting options, as we throw the coin in the air to help us decide, the desired outcome will be shining through to us in the form of a hope concerning one or other of the choices. The actual result of the tossed coin is irrelevant as we now have our decision.
And on those days in which we are truly unable to see anything shining through? Perhaps this in itself is valid input for exploration. What is blocking us from having clarity? What are we gaining by holding onto this state of confusion, worry or doubt? How would we act if everything was clear?
