Vision is extremely important. I am not talking aout the eyes on the outside of your body as much as the eyes of the heart. That is where true understanding and insight take place. Whatever the foundation of the heart is will detirmine the outcome of our entire lives. It is so important to have a solid and secure one. The best foundation we can lay is one of love because it cannot be overcome. It always succeeds in what it endeavors. The foundation will temper everything else. If love is our foundation we have in store for us a life beyond our wildest dreams. Without a vision, our hearts will perish. It gives us something to work towards, a purpose. If our eyes are not blinded by dispair, then we have hope. Dispair comes from discouragement which is from meditating on things that strike fear in our hearts. Love and knowing how much we are loved banishes fear from our hearts so that we can see clearly. Oh to know just how much we are loved. Love is high, deep, wide and long. Most of us merely scratch the surface. Let our eyesight be focused on compassion and gentleness. Let us stand against injustice, but not with our fingers and heads wagging. Let us truly treat others as if they were ourselves and let us learn to love ourselves as God does.
