To Make Clear

I am thankful for the clarity of noticing my part and what I can do next time to fix it. Life is good. I find myself still getting anxious for maybe the excitement of it. Show me a different way. Help me to recognize and accept it.

Clarity continues with strange little things like the quarterly newsletter showed an old business I had tried to succeed at for a little while. I need to create little appreciation certificates or accomplishment credentials or something, because this one does count.

I never got it to the point of paying all the bills, but I did receive money for many of the jobs I did. Really helped being close to a college, wrote papers for students, helped create a day care handbook and typed into manuscript form a novel for a gentlemen are the ones I remember.

Seeking Clarity

Wow, thanks for those forgotten memories. I still often wonder how to create realistically the dream of the little journey story by the sea.

Let not fear any longer stop me from following the path of clarity. Every day I am given a clear way to go. Seeking clarity does help me to focus, and get some of the morning thoughts done.

Part of my online work is bookmarking links of clarity from various websites. It makes for some very interesting reading. Plus, I begin to learn and understand how to move forward again.

Like these books more on spirituality, yet they help make clear the inner battle of religion and faith and my clear understanding of my place.

A Lesson In Clarity


I didn't trust myself then. I didn't know what to do and after a few more minutes it was clear I had to go back home, call the bus station again and in all honesty I did get the thought to call them before I left to ask the direction of the route since I couldn't remember.

Actually, I left in enough time I could have caught the sooner time on the other end. God did tell me, I just wasn't listening by then, or really didn't care and it did all work out. Just not as pleasantly as it would have had I of followed through with the voice saying to call for which direction would be best for me to meet the bus at. I wanted the voice to just tell me, instead of calling.

Another form of spirituality? Yes, intuition.

What stopped me from calling back? No time? Lack of clarity?

Can You Have Clarity of Spirit?

Is there a divine right? Oh, lets not even talk about it. Yet we support the books and like to share messages about it. What's up with that? Then we turn around again and get mad about the hate and injustice still hovering over us and the reminders of when only evil and fear and death shared their names and days with us. Oh but it wasn't me the heavens say, it was you who decided who lived and who died. No, no, they gave us no choice in the middle of the night when the clock strikes it's darkest hour, when the shock of the death still upon us, separating us from reality, whose reality? Now is that where spirit resides? Who wants to be here then if there is the bliss? If they cannot come back to us and we long for them so much, yet, physically real loving little arms continue to reach out for us.

So, if it is in this clarity where we find peace to live this life, teach us to let go and embrace the death of this physical life that happens to all of us.

What an interesting topic you wrote about. Clarity... even when we have it, it is situational, so we may not have it the next time. You really got me thinking, and I thoroughly enjoyed this read. Voted up and interesting.

true , it is hard to find clarity in our lives, in other words it is indeed a part of decision making which we do on daily basis and how much clear we are it entirely depend, we are not confused and have the ability to take immediate decision on the spot, interesting hub.

Realistically, never worry about what others think. If they think ill for an honest question, that is their problem, not yours.

great piece. It is hard to find clarity in our lives. We all need to stop once in a while to find clarity.
