“Never look down to test the ground before taking your next step; only he who keeps his eye fixed on the far horizon will find the right road.” Dag Hammarskjold
These above words may spell success or be a recipe for disaster depending on the ability to keep the focus on that which you see!
The acceptance of the manifold possibilities of seeing beyond looking could be the very reason for expansive outreach of potential in world affairs and resolutions whether it is a matter of peace or war. Having said so, solutions are in the emergence of a stream of consciousness in awareness of a meeting point in the melting pot from convergence to transcendence. An approach that is inclusive in temperament and expansive in the envisioning.
Truth be told , we have travelled on far in time and space and as we stand today, the realisation of the infinity of consciousness beyond the horizons is well set already. It is just a matter of probability on where our sights are, as we envision our path beyond and how it resonates in our awareness as it takes flight.
Speaking of flight unto beyond there is much going on before from take off between the spreading of wings and the flapping in flight. Would a bird be able to fly if its sight is fixated on the ground. Would the ship be able to sail of to distant lands and explore if it keeps itself safe harboured along the shores…. Its no wonder indeed that to fly and explore the unknown you must first be ready to let go of the ground beneath your feet.
In the same breath the awareness of when to take the flight and where and how to land back and find the balance on the high ground is a task of a lifetime to master.
So between the focussed planner of details and the far sighted idealist visionary…there are many paths to envision, where do you see yourself ?
Who are you? Are you more of the visionary kind?
Or are you the more cautious realist who weighs your options before every step?
