Clarity does not have much to do with the ability to understand or analyze; it has to do with the capacity to drop our projections and attachments so that we can truly see what is.
When we see clearly, we are deeply connected to our true selves. When we see clearly, we experience peace. Our homework is to stay curious about our filters, emotions, impulses, and our opinions. Clarity invites us to develop the ability to look inward and outward at the same time; there is no clarity without self-awareness.
In the middle of a crisis, our mind loves to take over and project a reality that is fear-based. Clarity requires our focus to stay within and acknowledge our own emotional experiences so that our vision can get crisper and broader. The magic always lies inside of us.
