What a blessing it is to be fully myself and have the freedom to say what is in my mind and heart to those 'strangers' I meet along my life's journey. I rather see everyone as friends I haven't yet met! I boarded the bus and sat down opposite Jess who was wearing a badge that said: "VIP Vision Impaired Person". I was inspired to say to her: "Oh, all I saw was the VIP on your badge and I thought: Very Important Person". We laughed and then two other woman sitting behind joined in the JOY! We chatted all the way to the train station about vision. We started playing with the VIP and decided to change its meaning after having a deep discussion about what true vision is! By the time we arrived at the train station it was agreed that it should stand for Very Impowered Person. Jess had such a beautiful positive attitude telling us that to stop herself from feeling depressed, she accepted that her purpose in life was to educate people about 'blindness'. Honestly, I truly believe that true blindness is to not see from your Heart. We chatted about vision and how we all really only have perception and what our human eyes see is only the meaning we put onto something. That is not really seeing at all. I told Jess that her blindness offered her an opportunity to go deeper into her Heart and have 'inner seeing'. At the train station one woman left to catch another bus and then I found myself sitting on the train with Jess on one side and Amanda on the other. The inspiring conversation continued for another 30 minutes until they left the train, but not before Jess turned and gave me a big hug and then I offered one to Amanda. I felt like the richest woman in the world to have been touched with the Love of these woman and to have the priceless freedom to allow my Heart to speak. If I had not followed the inner prompt of my Heart, I would have missed the heartfelt JOY that arose in my mind and Heart. True vision is to follow your Heart in every instance. My Heart needs sunglasses in moments like this, because it shines so very bright!
