Uniting Visions With Clarity and Reason

Updated on January 15, 2014

Garnering Unity Through Abundance, Peace & Agreement

This is an essay I've had on the back burner of my mind for a long time, expressing it is long overdue as we endeavor to advance our human experience in a more peaceful way. Observations of our world are inclined very personally, subjectively and diligently from what our vision is. In at least one way, you are the entire universe. So smile, so that we might smile as easily with you. Yours is not the only vision in the world, but you are directing your perception and experience to turn existence, whether you want to or not, you are doing it. Everyone's vision, everyone's plan for the future does indeed depend upon one another whether you agree with their imagination or lack of or not. What will you do? What will you decide?

Originally I intended to call this essay Conflicting Visions because my original inspiration for this collection of observations was watching how many of my friends, neighbors and family have very different visions for the future. Arguments, persuasive monologues and eloquent metaphors are all offered for your mind's eye to absorb, process and draw your own conclusions. All of these vying for our attention so that they might lead your life down that particular path. There are infinite paths for our world to take though, and I choose to look for the peace path. Of course the war path is one that has been around for a long time too. What we choose to put our heart into is what the world will become. How clear our vision is will determine how fast we will get to our desired experience. As you may have guessed by now the reason I changed the title of this essay was because I decided to again redirect even that tiniest bit of energy towards a more positive end. That's how you do it, even the smallest change in your steering will guide you to that new place.


A peaceful diversion, a grace filled reality, turn toward a better solution.

Although we walk alone through this world and it maybe easy to think our actions and opinions don't matter, they do in fact, create our entire reality.

Creativity and innovation need to be held fast in our decisions.

At the store with my wife yesterday, we both paused in an aisle, laughing at each other just a little because we knew we were there to get a couple things that we were forgetting. A clerk walked by and smiled, she asked, "Can I help you find anything?"

I replied, "Ha no we just generally look this lost and confused." After I said that I laughed then she laughed a little but not much. I felt as though I sounded kind of jaded.

Then the clerk said, "I'm just trying to think nice thoughts."

Which was a telling thing to say, in light of the many tragedies in my country and abroad involving so many heartless attacks on children. I believed her, many of us are in a state of mind willing to aid anyone who might need it, and it begins with our thoughts in their most primary form.

Power and energy flow out from your thoughts, decisions and actions. How you receive news, how you generate conclusions, that which you choose to study; all of these set the fine toggles and vines of the universe churning in that certain direction. The plan for peace, those who feed it and those who call it into more and more existence, do so with passion for abundance and bringing ideas of grace and forgiveness together. Creativity and innovation need to be held fast in our decisions. Austerity and fear are a contagious malady that molds over our good intentions. History, status quo and obstinance are excuses only if you let them be. New ways will be made if you allow them, in your life and in our world.

Your vision guides us all.

Your vision guides us all, your plan for the future, your acceptance or rejection of suffering all lead the way. We evolve, but blind acceptance of any notion is a misstep. The weakest humans among us physically, have needs beyond mother nature's raw evolution. The weakest humans among us mentally, have needs that require substantial breaks and slack. The weakest humans among us spiritually, have needs that may require models and codes that are more deliberate, that challenge worn out myths. Start seeing better using the best of your morals, using the best of your ethics and only the good side of your mind. Grant a new allowance to those that have proven to guide with reason.

      Glad to see you Niteriter and thanks mon frere. I started this essay weeks ago, aimed for New Years day and missed by a few days. I was inspired to finish it while rereading Black Elk Speaks, a wonderful true story of a nephew of Crazy Horse and his potent vision of our world.

      Be well my friend.

      Your observations, as always Brother Ben, are wrapped in the soft cloth of thoughtfulness and wisdom. It is with great pleasure that I read this latest of your offerings. May the Great Spirit continue to direct your footsteps.

      Best wishes.

      Vision is really what it is all about. The key really is being evolved, and with that, change and unity will come about, I think.
