ABC's of Self-Realization: Visualizing your Virtue

Updated on August 14, 2011

Definition of virtue: a. Moral excellence and righteousness; goodness. b. An example or kind of moral excellence: the virtue of patience

Ahhh! To have such virtue! So much uprising and chaos in the world lately seems to have smothered the idea of the virtuous. One of the most valuable “lessons” I have learned in my lifetime is the idea of visualizing what it is that I want to become or to manifest in my life. Visualizing your goals, dreams, and heart’s desires is the same thing as praying for them. During the process of visualizing events for your life, please consider visualizing the true value of your virtue.

If you are person who chooses to experience living from the “grandest version of the greatest vision you have ever held about yourself”, you will know that your “soul purpose” is to walk in the path of morality and goodness. The virtue of righteousness is about walking what you talk and meaning what you say. The virtue of patience is about remembering that others are just like you: they make mistakes, they want to be praised for what they do correctly, and they want someone to be calm and patient when they are learning something new, the same as you. Being patient includes putting yourself in the shoes of another, treating others the way you want to be treated. Who are we to put ourselves above others, believing that they don’t deserve patience, acceptance, and love just like we think we “should” get from others?

Two more important truths to ponder are these: first of all, nobody “deserves” anything. All the “things” we think we deserve are truly just gifts and blessings that everyone has the innate right to have – gifts like love, acceptance, patience, kindness, equality, etc. And secondly, don’t “should” on yourself or others, my friends! “Shoulds” are restrictive and controlling – they are based on the expectations or desires others have for you. They limit your freedom and the experience of being who you are, just exactly the way you are. “Shoulds” are of no benefit to anyone.

When you strive to consistently visualize your innate greatness, your virtue, your worth, your purpose, your value as a human being - you have a much greater chance of being completely whole – mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually, and you can’t ask for more than that. Walk in empowerment, because that’s Who You Are!

      This is a well thought out article. I do wish the younger generation had a higher sense of virtue. So few do. I'd like to see young ones think more for positive resolutions to issues instead of lashing out violently. I'd like to see more youth care about their personal environment and not litter because they know someone else will do the cleaning. I wish everyone showed virtue so they would control their anger and not give in to road rage, impoliteness and hate. We all do have to start with ourselves. You're right, when we visualize what we want to be then our subconscience works with us to see it through. Smile!
