The Concept of Blindness:
Blind: (comparable) Failing to see, acknowledge, perceive.
I choose this definition of blindness because it is more subtle and not particularly direct. It’s going to help with what I will share today.
When it comes to environmental blindness (that is not internal blindness), there are some key things you should note.
Blindness can come through both darkness and light! Although many of us are used to the blindness of darkness, only few have realised that there is a blindness of light. Those who drive at night and get a full light flash in their faces will not be new to the concept of blindness by light.
How does this happen? This also follows the Twain principle; the duality of events.
For someone to see, there are two things involved. There should be an OBJECT and an OBSERVER. When these two are in the same plane of visibility then sight is assured.
Blindness by darkness comes when the object is obscured from sight due to darkness while blindness by light happens when the observer is shielded with light which stops him from seeing the object.
How does this apply to you?
1. When your environment prevents you from seeing the object, you become blind. To conquer this, you need exposure. Some people are the way they are because they’ve not changed their environment in a while. Then they become blind to opportunities around them.
2. When you’re flooded with too much light, you go blind. When you get access to TOO MUCH INFORMATION than necessary, you become intellectually blind. To conquer this, you need to watch the info you accept as fact.
I will end with one of my quotes;
“If you always have an answer to every question, then it’s either you’re intelligent or you’re proud….OR BOTH”
