Seeking clarity through the clouds of uncertainly is an action we probably all engage in from time to time. That we attempt to find clarity through the clouds is perhaps testimony to our belief in its existence. After all, it would be pointless to set about searching for clarity though the clouds without thinking it is there.
Yet once we begin our efforts in discovering clarity through the clouds, the question arises as to what we will do with it when we have found it.
For some people it might mean a confirmation of initial thoughts. Getting proof keeps us on track to achieving our goals, notwithstanding obstacles and the like. For others, the action of looking is itself a satisfying one and each step forward brings new awareness in its own fashion.
Whatever works best for us is, as ever, the optimum way ahead. And momentum builds as we go about focusing attention and effort on taking responsibility for our actions.
On the other hand, waiting for the bright light of understanding to arrive ‘out of the blue’ could be just another form of procrastination at times. To be fair though, on occasions, clarity through the clouds is actually encountered in the silence and energy of doing nothing but breathing.
