InnerSelf's Daily Inspiration

September 20, 2023

The focus for today is:

Clarity is mine when I take the time to seek it out.

Today's inspiration was written by Marie T. Russell:

Things are not always as they seem. Sometimes we misinterpret or misunderstand what we see or hear. And at other times, we may be misled intentionally by others for their own self-interest. However, we do have the capability of discerning truth from falsehood, love from manipulation, and light from dark.

We can access clarity by getting quiet and listening inside our own heart, soul, and intuition. We can also tune in to the feelings in our body. Our body knows when something is "off" or feels "icky". Our mind can also assist us in discerning truth, as long as the ego is not involved and benefiting from the deception.

Clarity is gifted to us from many sources and many directions. This requires us to center ourselves quietly and listen to the messages that come our way. It requires that we go inward in order to listen, reflect, and understand. Clarity is ours when we take the time to seek it out.

Today's inspiration was adapted from the article:
     Dare To Dream and Create a Vision for Your Life

Our focus for today: Clarity is mine when I take the time to seek it out.
