A Spiritual Walk: What is your perfect vision for healing the world? – New Baltimore Voice Newspapers

As last year was ending, many organizations felt the perfect vision year of 2020 was coming. It would be a good year! Facebook posts were full of positive memes as well.

And, of course, as every year closes out, we look forward to a new year with the hope and vision that something better is coming.

The roaring twenties crossed my mind. As a teen I had danced in a tap class and we all wore cool-colored costume dresses with fringe all over them. The fringe shook wildly as we danced the Charleston to some really fun music. It was a vision representing fun with only good things happening.

Now it seems that the perfect vision for this year is not what good can come into our lives, but to look behind us and ask what good can we manifest through our time in connecting with God.

During a routine eye exam we usually read a chart of letters ranging from large to small. You read until you reach the smallest set of letters you can see. It tells the doctor at what distance you can read what a person with normal vision sees at 20 feet. The goal for most of us is to see 20/20. To support us with the best possible vision we may be prescribed glasses or contact lenses.

A chiropractor once told me our eyes are meant to be level with the Earths horizon. If they are not, our body might shift itself to make that happen. The shift might tweak our spine, head, shoulders or hips in a little different position so that our vision is level.

How is your vision looking for the year 2020?

We are approaching fall weather soon. Those are the months to look back over our year and see what worked for us and what didnt, so we can let fall away all that no longer serves us.

In evaluating the first six months of 2020, I see that my vision still needs prayer and meditation. After all, my memory of the roaring twenties and dancing the Charleston was fun. Looking back at 2020, I find no fun in the chaos of a pandemic or providing a church service during shutdowns.

In my household we are all adapting to everyone working from home. Following the news is more important now because a brief story in a Facebook post or a tweet does not provide enough information. And I never miss reading the daily newspaper now, either. The daily paper has my local news, and I find it provides a more historical view of what is happening in our world today. All of this keeps me busy and requires more quiet time to meditate and process the chaos.

One day while meditating I heard: Hindsight is 2020. This rings true. Sure there is chaos, but it looks better to you when can see that its happened before. For example, right now some people dont want to wear a mask. But, if you look back to the Spanish flu pandemic, you will find people held meetings against wearing masks.

The truth is, life has existed for a long time. Anything you see has surely been seen before. Nothing is new, and we are all attached to generations of people who may or may not have made the best decisions.

Use this year of perfect vision to look back, and using hindsight, lets make better changes for future generations to look back on.

What is your perfect vision for 2020? Dont use my example use what is in your heart that you feel needs to be healed. As you are meditating, see what thought comes to you. What is important to you? Does it reflect another time in your history or the history of the world? If so, what was the previous outcome?

Hold your thoughts on what you want healed or changed. Next, let that outcome go, and visualize only what you would have the best outcome be. Do not think on how it will come; let God take care of that.

I mentioned chaos, which is the opposite of peace. If we prefer to have peace, then during meditation, when we are connecting with God, the source of all creation, we must see in our mind what peace looks like to us. We do not have to explain what is not right to God. He knows all already.

So we focus our mind on seeing what is best. Hold in your mind and consciousness what your best vision is. Letting worry fall away, simply accept the peace in knowing, your best good will be.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

Seeing you healthy, whole and perfect, just the way God made you!
