I emphasize focus to completion a lot, especially with my kids. Focus is a necessary and most important ingredient for a successful life.
But focus is also like a telescope, which by its nature edits out the surrounding area/energy. By design focus is an editing tool.
Think of it this way, the way your vision and mind work together is through a natural focus which makes what you are looking at/focusing on brighter, bigger and bolder. There is a weaknesses embedded into this and it is not just the natural edit. It is that we strive to confirm the world we see so we will interpolate in our mind to fill in the unseen holes. What we are left with is a focused image in our mind to the making of our confirming design.
When this happens we limit the freedom and serendipity of the point of our focus. Many times we walk away satisfied with our own version, but it is just one of many and more layered facets we have also missed.
Think how we do this to people, seeing one facet and interpolating to confirm our version and then holding them to this limited version, then consider they are doing this to you.
It would be prudent in our focus to be aware and open to new information to allow our interpolated image to be modified and move through time. To allow more information in and to relax our focus to take in more. We are all learning and growing in a linear time space, we make mistakes, but that doesn’t mean we are necessarily bad people. Inherently we are good, let’s allow our focus to look for the good too.
