Vision as Focus of Inquiry
What we choose to see and focus on carries power and energy. 2022 Latest Answers
inquiry emphasizes what gives life to a living system, and it is rooted in the
notion that what we study grows and what we appreciate (pay attention to) appreciates (increases in value). Our minds’ anticipatory images and intentions help
create the future. Giving repeated attention to certain thoughts and images causes
changes in our brains, making us more predisposed to think and feel these
thoughts. What we visualize and the questions we ask lead us to the focus of
inquiry. Mundane examples, such as riding a bicycle or a horse, remind us that
we need to be careful about where we look. It’s almost eerie that horses always
know where the rider is looking and take you where you are looking. Vision
leads us to the focus of inquiry.
If vision is based on what to avoid, the very thing you try to avoid becomes the
focus. If we consistently look at defi cits, we direct more energy to them. Thought
and vision direct energy. Being mindful about what we focus on helps us to see the
world differently, as we don’t see the world as it is but see it as we are.
