Vision of life

Despite all the conveniences and facilities we have because of science and technology, humanity still remains in absolute confusion and mess. Most people in the world live their lives without even understanding what it is that they really want for themselves. Or even if they know what they want, they neither have the will nor the vision to create this. Most of the time they settle for anything that they feel is easy or for whatever is within their reach.
If one has a vision of what one wishes to do, it is not beyond one’s capacity to create it. It may happen in this lifetime, it may take a couple of lifetimes but what we want will definitely come. For that person whose vision of life is clear and he just seeks it every moment of his life, the highest things will come and fall at his feet.
What you know as the highest, you just seek that. It does not matter whether it is going to happen or not going to happen, simply living with the vision itself is a very elevating, liberating, and joyous process. Whether it is going to happen tomorrow or after a hundred years is not the point. You are not concerned about the result in the end. It is just that you have a vision and you give your life towards it. This is one of the easiest ways to attain the highest also. The whole Gita is just about this — to simply give yourself to what you want, not caring whether it is going to happen or not going to happen. It is a spiritual process by itself.
Vision is an important way of transcending limitations within and outside ourselves. If what you want is very clear to you and if you are set on it, what seems to be impossible today, tomorrow it becomes a normal part of your life. So, have a vision, and right now.
