PERSONAL "BLIND SPOTS"
Every Human Being have blind spots. I have blind spots. You have blind spots, and we have a blind spot in each eye. So what do I mean, when I say, Blind spots? And what are BLIND SPOTS? A Blind Spot is THE POINT of entry of the optic nerve on the retina is insensitive to light…..and you’re like, “Whatever!” and some of you are like, “The what on the who?”……I’m going somewhere with this, so I hope I can paint this picture---for you.
So for the most part, the human eye, YOUR EYE, gives YOUR BRAIN an accurate picture of what’s going on in the world, BUT that’s with limitations. You see many birds and insects can see ULTRAVIOLET (like electro magnetic capability), and some animals can see INFRARED (similar to like seeing x-rays) , but HUMANS…WE are subjected to “VISIBLE” light only, and this VISIBLE LIGHT cuts down our view of the world…What view am I speaking of? Well, we’re not able to see URINE trails that are left behind by animals, and we are unable to FULLY APPRECIATE the COLORS (true colors) of certain flowers, and the HUMAN EYE can’t distinguish between polarized and nonpolarized light (but) some birds and underwater fish are able to do so….but even still, the eye sends signals TO OUR BRAIN and WE ARE ABLE to navigate through the world pretty successfully, with WHAT WE SEE AND HOW WE SEE….BUT, WE HAVE LIVED A LIFE thinking that what we see, is ACTUALLY what’s out there, YET, that’s not entirely TRUE. Since each eye has a BLIND SPOT, the brain will FILL IN what is there by look at the surrounding area….the surrounding picture.
So…this got me to thinking about A LOT OF THINGS. WHAT ARE OUR PERSONAL BLIND SPOTS? The area where a person's view is obstructed/BLOCKED/CLOGGED/CONGESTED.So…how many things are we BLIND to in our lives. WHAT ARE THE THINGS we FAIL TO SEE, even though we NEED TO SEE IT, so we don’t HURT someone else OR bring HARM to ourself…..Those things we need to see so we don’t CRASH!!!
I have an older car, but I was told that the newer car models have WARNING SIGNALS if there is a car in the your BLIND SPOT. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a “WARNING SIGNAL” for PERSONAL BLIND SPOTS? What am I talking about when I say PERSONAL BLIND SPOTS? Those isms we have that need changing, fix, repaired, restored, TRANSFORMED…..It’s our unhealthy attitudes, our pride, our unjust morals, our ill ways of thinking, our NARROW VIEWS, our fears, our jealousy and prejudices….our inability to forgive, OUR COVETOUESNESS (wanting what someone else has)…. our laziness and slothful ways…..filthy mouths…..lusty minds…..HATRED, deception and lies, and cowardice……Oh there’s so much more…..
THOSE BLIND SPOTS…… we HAVE them. …..and like those NEWER MODEL CARS, WE HAVE WARNING SIGNALS TOO---SIGNALS & INDICATORS WE IGNORE.
HOLY SPIRIT: Holy Spirit gives you a warning (we refer to Holy Spirit as “something”---Something told me not to, etc.) For those of you who have TUNED out the Holy Spirit, you have your
FRIENDS: Your friends…FRIENDS will usually tell you those AREAS in your life that REQUIRE some ATTENTION or ATTENDING TO…if they are NOT the type to tell you automatically, JUST ASK THEM….they’ll tell you in love
YOURSELF: YOU…YOURSELF….LISTEN to yourself and EVALUATE YOURSELF
YOUR ENEMIES…..What do your enemies say? When people get mad and good at you, they develop this HOLY BOLDNESS and want to tell you EVERYTHING about yourself. All your isms and hang-ups
SO THOSE ARE SOME OF OUR WARNING SIGNALS…..Helping us to Recognize our BLIND SPOTS.
It’s critical to , NOT ONLY RECOGNIZE, but ADDRESS THESE AREAS….because POTENTIALLY, whatever is LEFT UNDONE has the potential to HARM US and OTHERS…….SO PUT ON YOUR ULTRA VIOLENT, YOUR INFARED, and YOUR VISIBLE SIGHT and BEGAN SEEING AND CORRECTING Those areas that are blind to CORRECTION.
