I am someone who usually has four different books that I am reading at any given time. I can’t seem to finish one before I see another one that feels like it is perfect for the mood I am in!
My latest library book that is perfect for my mood is 21 Lessons for the 21st Century by Yuval Noah Harari. Although I believe the whole book will be interesting, the first sentence from his introduction made me realize why I was guided to read it. He writes, “In a world deluged by irrelevant information, clarity is power.” Wow, love it. When I shared this statement with my husband, he added that he thought clarity is rare. With all the different ways to receive information these days, with the veracity of that information not always known, I believe both of these men are correct.
I hope that we will make it our goal for this week, this year, this century to work on our own clarity.
Let’s look at this a little more closely.
We should set our intention and desire that the clarity of the information we take in as well as the clarity of the communication we have with each other is as precise as possible. We can help ourselves by being open to listening to more than just the sound bites on TV, the internet and even in the coffee shops we frequent. Are we getting information from only one media outlet or only from one particular side or one particular politician? Or do we read different points of view, magazines (yes, I used the word magazine!!), newspapers as well as our twitter feed to see what information is out there? You may say, but Lori, this deluge of information is what Harari is talking about. Probably. We need to take those different views and through conversation with our own wisdom, our own inner guidance, ask to have the information synthesized to the truth from the perspective our soul / our god-self.
In the Standing in the Light® Channeling class, we teach that the quality of the answers we receive from our inner guidance is based on the quality of the questions that we ask. Clarity and specificity of the questions is key to receiving the most relevant and highest plan answers. This clarity, this power, of our communication and conversation with our inner guidance is even more important than the clarity of the news sites we read or to which we listen.
Information from outside of ourselves can be manipulated or spun or might only be part of the story. But, when we are in clear communication with our inner guidance, we are no one’s fool. We are powerful. We are wise.
We teach in our classes that checking with our inner wisdom about the accuracy or wholeness of a news story or other information is not a luxury but is essential for our own evolution. If our lower self ego believes an idea or a thought because that is what we have always believed, well, we may not be taking action from the most accurate information. If we listen to our inner wisdom, we may even hear that we have false beliefs that need to change in order to move forward with a higher version of our plan. We only come to that realization with clarity and the willingness to change to a new truth.
Clarity is power. Clarity is wisdom. Clarity will help us see the truth. Clarity will set us free. Embrace clarity. Embrace freedom.
