Clarity is King
Clarity is King meaning that to be clear and quiet within is of utmost priority.
It ain’t always easy to make this clear mental state a priority.
Urgencies and challenges will be there.
Sometimes you need to take care of some business first and I get that.
But when you get home, don’t rush and hop on the couch and turn on the TV.
Don’t start checking your eighty-three social media profiles.
See what’s going on in the internal world.
How are things in there?
Is it like a whirlwind? Is your mind scattered? Is your mental state foggy?
Be vigilant at that moment because you have a choice there.
You can choose to remain unconscious or you can choose to clear your mind, quiet the chatter, and recenter.
Recenter with Tao and align yourself with your purpose AKA who you are and what you’re here to do.
This is a practice as it requires trial, error, and training.
It’s not always easy to catch yourself falling into an unconscious state.
“Man’s basic vice, the source of all his evils, is the act of unfocusing his mind, the suspension of his consciousness, which is not blindness, but the refusal to see, not ignorance, but the refusal to know.” – Ayn Rand
Don’t let yourself slip because that’s when the enemies come in and surprise you.
When you’re being unconscious, you may not notice it at first but what ends up happening is that you start straying from the path little by little. You start making poor decisions that are so small that they seem trivial but what you don’t know is that these so-called “trivial decisions” are seeds that have potential to grow into larger and more destructive forces.
A trained eye can notice a seed like that and dig it out like the weed it is leaving a clear and orderly garden. An untrained man leaves the seed thinking it can’t possibly do anything because it’s so small but is later taken by surprise when the seed grows into a massive oak!
That’s why I say clarity is king.
What I’m referring to is the practice of constantly checking in to your internal world and making sure that everything is in order…that you are thinking clearly. It’s worth noting that thinking isn’t essential as it is also important to silence thoughts and simply be. Be no-thing and just like a clear and calm body of water; everything becomes clear.
Silence is sacred.
Nothingness is divine.
Clarity is king as when you’re clear, you are in the proper state to continue your journey most impeccably.
When you’re unconscious, destruction and self-sabotage aren’t far-off.
