The Miracle of Sight: A Perspective Piece
Foresight includes contemplating the consequences of present actions on our future. Since we're in this together I won't allow you to make decisions that will ultimately lead to our demise, discomfort, or detriment. I'm sure we'll come to the correct conclusion after careful deliberation.
Insight suggests that there may be more than meets the eye to our present circumstance. The true nature of a thing may require discernment or penetrating mental vision to fully comprehend. Look deeply into motivation and behavior to uncover patterns of your subject while preparing your own strategy.
Hindsight is said to be 20/20 yet there are imperfections in reflection. Being knowledgeable of our history will minimize the repetition of old mistakes. However, texts as recorded by the victor seldom consider accurate depictions of the loser and thus must be received with a grain of salt.
Blindness is also a condition of sight. They say "love is blind". Ignorance is described as bliss and provides for a certain type of blindness. A blind man may convince you that a lack of sight is not so bad but he cannot describe a sunrise. Being naive and shortsighted are symptoms of failing sight.
I mean forget how it looks; only what it IS is important. Image changes with perspective, don't get lost in smoke and mirrors. You have the last opportunity to do things right and the creative control to change things you don't like. An architect follows a blueprint and similarly your steps are ordered righteously towards your destiny. Open your eyes.
