“If you will call your troubles ‘experiences,’ and remember that every experience develops some latent force within you, you will grow vigorous and happy, however adverse your circumstances may seem to be.” – John Haywood
All too often we ignore the development of our spiritual side. We don’t realize that it opens windows and brings clarity to our minds. It is where our creativity comes from, and it represents who and what we truly are.
You’re probably asking, “Just what do you mean by ‘clarity,’ Dean?” The dictionary defines clarity as a “state of being free from ambiguity or indistinctness,” and a quality of being lucid, plain, or evident. To possess clarity means we are able to perceive clearly, as in a clear intellect or a clear head. Our thoughts are unclouded.
Part of my spiritual journey was learning how to tap into my inner self. As I did so, I became more discriminating. I was less clouded with passion. I reacted less with my emotions and more with my mind. It later manifested itself in me over time with a serenity that I had not known before. I experienced more positive feelings and attract more positive circumstances in my life.
We all have painful experiences that represent out darkest times. If we could, we would erase them. However, whether things are good or bad, taking them completely away would be a mistake. Our character is built through them all.
