Seeing the light

December 27, 2015

Seeing the light

Setting aside the obvious cliché of seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, right now might be the time to explore the nature of the illumination we are attempting to discover.

By initiating our efforts we hopefully find ourselves moving in our chosen direction. Seeing the light in terms of connecting with a desired outcome may be the result we achieve through our actions. Of course, rarely are all the factors involved in reaching our objectives under our control.

Life holds surprises for everyone and it would be egoistical on our part to imagine we are any different to others in being susceptible to the unexpected. However, seeing the light as regards being successful in everything is actually less related to what we do and more to how we do it.

Giving, doing and being our best should perhaps be considered as a way of seeing the light irrespective of our eventual destination, physically or figuratively speaking.

Each day provides opportunities for us to go about seeing the light from the perspectives mentioned above. We do not need to wait for any special moment or specific task to be completed to set the idea in motion. Our senses and intuition guide us, when we trust them.

In such instances we invariably know when we are on the right track leading to our chosen objectives. Connecting with our inner guidance system keeps us on course. It is itself a way of seeing the light inside our heart even if the situation outside is at times less bright.

Thanks for reading this ‘Seeing the light‘ post.

Kindest regards.
