Symbolism: How to see the Full Picture and Get Clarity on Your Life
Sorry about the lack of posting last week. Work is still hectic and busy for me. So this post could have been a video discussion post, but I feel this topic has more symbolism in it. With that said here is some background info on the video. It features an item from the video game The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword called the Gust Bellows.
Clear the Clutter
So as you saw the Gust Bellows is an item that pretty much shoots out a continuous large gust of wind. Here is where the symbolism comes in. We are the character in the video named Link. Picture the sand as the fog and confusion you have about your life or various topics. Underneath the sand there is the clarity and the full picture of the situation and/or to your questions. The gust bellows represents the tools and techniques we can use to remove that fog and uncertainty in our lives.
If you have felt that there is some unclarity, uncertainty, in your life as well as confusion, your not alone. To remove the fog and confusion (the sand), we sometimes have to change our mindset. We have to unlearn old habits and implement new ways of thinking and create good healthy habits (the gust bellows). When we do that, we can start removing all the confusion and uncertainty in our lives.
To be real with all of you, eliminating that uncertainty and getting some clarity may reveal some truths that we may not like or be ready for. In the video, you saw some spikes come out the floor. Picture those spikes as some harsh truths which we have to face and sometimes accept and yes they can hurt.
On the flipside, clearing that confusion, getting answers to questions we have can reveal good things. In the video, green gems called rupees were revealed when the sand was blown away. In the game, rupees are currency to buy items, upgrades, and materials for Link. Also when the sand was removed, the right path for Link was revealed. Clearing that confusion in our lives can give us the guidance we need and to find and follow our own path. Getting that clarity to confusing things in our lives and those answers to our questions feels great right?
So overall, we are faced with uncertainty, confusion, and unanswered questions in our lives. We don’t always see the full picture or big picture figuratively speaking. However with the right tools and help from other people in our lives, we can. Does this process take time, it can. Everyone is different; lets just say some remove the sand faster than others. If your someone who needs more time to remove the sand, that is fine. Everyone moves at a different pace and no pace is the same.
Take care, stay safe, and remember your not alone and you have worth in this world.
