Vision: a: something seen in a dream, trance, or ecstasy; especially: a supernatural appearance that conveys a revelation.*
A vision. So, where do you get one of those? According to Webster’s, the vision is going to be revealed to you through an outside source. So, if you approach the outside source in the correct way, will it convey to you the supernatural appearance Webster claims it will?
Yes, as long as you are willing to live within the solitude of the ether world where the Supernatural exists, rather than slogging through the ditch where the masses reside.
The single-minded focus of individuals, such as Thomas Edison, Bill Gates, and Marie Curie, drove forward the development of culture-changing inventions. Human needs on a massive global scale, such as war and natural-created disasters, are met because people like Clara Barton, the American Red Cross’s founder, felt a compulsion to lend a hand in a practical way.
But where and how did their vision originate? If you read their biographies, not much is documented about their spiritual mindset—although 1920s era inventors were often part of the New Thought Community or were Freethinkers—but most chronicle the affinity for solitude they had. It’s incorrect to say these great minds shunned public contact. Their creations were released on such a public platform and provided such wide-scale cultural improvement, that a loner characteristic would have been at odds with their work. Instead, the necessity for distraction-free environment was the mother which gave birth to the visions they developed.
And that’s primarily where the source of all visions is accessed—in the quiet flow of interaction between thought and the Energy which releases inspiration an image or idea at a time. If a person indulges a curiosity, no matter how minor or trivial it may seem at the inception and allows its nudging to propel them further, a shining vision bigger than the one they initially conceived will loom large and bright on the horizon.
