For a moment, let’s assume that you had a plot of land which you took the time to clear and uproot the weeds. Now, what would happen if you refused to plant any seeds in your cleared land?
Your land would would be overgrown with weeds again.
Now, did the fact that you DID NOT plant the weeds prevent your land from being overrun?
No! Actually, despite the fact that you did not consciously plant weeds in your cleared land, your decision NOT TO deliberately plant seeds was also a decision to permit the growth of weeds in your land!
It’s the natural order of things: When you plant seeds, crops grow; when you don’t plant seeds, weeds would grow!
Many people agree to this truth, yet it’s astonishing that so many find it difficult to understand that the same principles hold true in the art of observation.
You see, everyone has the ability to see and observe. However, the sad thing is that not everyone is CHOOSING to observe deliberately!
Principles would always be principles. They aren’t respecters of one’s consciousness. With principles, ignorance isn’t an excuse; with principles, there are no alibis!
Whether you are conscious of the fact or not, the quality of your life at the moment is dependent on what you saw in the past; and the quality of your life in the future would be dependent on what you are seeing NOW…regardless of whether you’re looking deliberately or not!
The difference between the observers and passive seers lies in the deliberate effort applied to the stream of consciousness. The observers refuse to allow the land of their lives to dictate the sort of fruits that would come out of it. Rather, they deliberately and consciously select the kind of seeds that they want to propagate on the lands of their lives.
Observers understand that man is a partner with God in the continuous creative process of instituting order in the world.
In spite of this reality, the truth is that many people are merely seeing, but not consciously observing.
The irony is that what they see is often an accurate description of their APPARENT REALITIES. What many people are seeing all around are chaotic weeds of poverty, unpredictable economic tides, wars and rumors of wars, lack, strife, loose morals, ever-dropping standards, and so on.
There are apparently weeds of chaos everywhere. Note the term ‘apparently’. It implies that the weeds of chaos aren’t the ULTIMATE REAL DEAL! It’s just a perception of reality.
In spite of this, here’s what distinguishes those who have mastery in the art of observation:
‘While the majority choose to see and adapt to the weeds of chaos in their lives; the very few who observe, challenge chaos to create order, because they can choose to see that too!’
Observation is a deliberate and conscious effort that God has designed and ordained everyone to be a master at.
Unfortunately, many are merely seeing, and quality of their lives naturally matches up with the quality of their defective vision.
Friend, why don’t you just take a step out of the traffic, and for once, take a look at what ought to be.
I promise you, you’ve got nothing else to lose, and everything to gain!
