Clarity is an understanding we achieve about something we previously failed to understand. It’s what we create for ourselves. But to have complete clarity we must avoid other potential thoughts that could veer us off course. It doesn’t matter if we don’t have clarity straight away, as long as we actively work towards it.

Clarity comes through our understanding, but always difficult to achieve when we’re dealing with emotional issues, without feeling tired or drained in some way. Life can run smoothly with everything working out as we plan, and then we meet a dip in the road and we need to re-think.

I must continue to deal with my life and all that life in general throws at me, and that can be difficult sometimes. But to have peace of mind I need clarity. On some issues, I have clarity. On others I have none. And as the day progresses I tend to have even less. Perhaps that’s got something to do with how tired I get.

But it is always our understanding that brings about clarity. Taking out all the non-important things we’re stressing about helps with that. When I try to multi-task and because my thoughts are jumbled, I end up sorting nothing out at all. All I do is bring more confusion into the equation.

When I deal with things individually I have clarity, my mind is at peace, centred and balanced. Whichever way I turn, I feel calm and in control, and I am able to bring solutions and conclusions to some of the issues I have to deal with.

Clarity can happen, but we need to actively take steps to make it happen. As ever it’s a work-in-progress.

  1. I rarely have clarity.

    I get so wrapped up in everyday and others problems I can’t get time for myself to think. But when I do all seems right and calming.

    1. I understand you totally Lisa. I am sure we have a little bit of that depending on what we have to deal with.

      I take the view that if it’s my problem to deal with, then I deal with it as swiftly as I can to bring about the right conclusion. If it’s not my problem, someone else is just giving me their problem, I try and help if that is what’s needed or give them the problem back. I certainly don’t carry it. It’s not for me to carry!

      Pleased that when you do have time to think, all seems right and calming.

  2. I agree with what you wrote about the importance of clarity.

    When dealing with things that you can’t seem to get off your mind it often takes more than simply wanting it, acknowledgement and awareness.

    Action is required too but often it’s the most difficult part that many don’t complete.

    1. Ditto. Totally agree with you. I am sure your last paragraph will resonate with the many people who struggle to take action and you’re right that needs to happen.
