Thank you to every one that has honored me by taking out time to read the original post. Women have a shallow way of reasoning out things at times because that is what makes sense to us at that time. Some times we prefer to bury our heads in the sand . I challenge you to dig deep and uncover the answer that will help you go through these tough times. Sometimes we avoid digging deep because we do not like the answers we get. The answers are within you.
My aim in writing this post is to share my thoughts and gain wisdom and knowledge from others. As a health coach, minister and counselor, I talk to different women everyday and in the process I try to understand what every woman of this age group is going through.
Some of us may not connect to the post because they may not be experiencing the changes yet.like that woman looking at her reflection in the mirror in her peak and judging those before her. You cannot escape the changes. If they have not come, wait for them.
Only God Myself and Tony Iro know what stage of this journey I am on at the moment. it does not really matter what compliments I get when I post my pictures. And yes I am blessed with great genes and do not deal with most of the issues that most woman go through at this time however wisdom tells me not to be in denial and prepare for the days ahead. I welcome the changes.
No matter how well we age and how little one of the changes affect you, I challenge you to strip down and I mean no panties and all the next time you are in front of the mirror and tell me what you see.
The signs of the changes are there, it could be as little as the desert encroaching in an area that once represented new life. If you are shaking your head at the choice of words. Let me supply the meaning of desert.((A desert is a barren area of land where little precipitation occurs and consequently living conditions are hostile for plant and animal life) This definition describes what nature intends to happen at the end of time. At this time our conditions are no longer favorable for new life. Please the men on this thread, you are not immune to the changes. You know you experience them too but our gender roles are different. To you, I pray that the Lord will give you more understanding and empathy towards all women, especially the ones closest to you.
Remember we are speaking balance here and my wish is that I can through these discussions provide a platform to reason together in truth, openness and love so we can understand things both spiritual and temporal better. Thank you, stay tuned I will continue to write as the Lord gives me revelation. I wanted to thank so many of you that have thought real deep to help me with these answers. You are all correct. Tony Iro, Kwavi Christy Agbeyegbe , Chizoba Wonodi , Stella Chidi Mbakwe Ohanenye and so many others. I am blessed to be surrounded by wisdom. Thank you.
About the answer.
Why does our eye sight change with the times?
The decline of the eye sight at this stage is a physical thing but it does not mean the same thing to a person within their peak. For a younger person to have a decline in sight is an exception not a rule. Nature did not intend it that way, certain circumstances made that happen. ill health, poor life choices, injury or genetic dispositions.Nature is an awesome planner. Nature first figured out that to fulfill your purpose, you needed to have the sight to examine all suitors and make your choice in your younger years. Because we have been given free will you will have to choose who will help you fulfill your role. So at this period of life, you open your eyes and look far and wide and take in all the goodness in the opposite sex. Be careful though there is a different between a father who fertilizes you and a husband. Here nature's goal is reproduction. You can use your sight to behold a husband but he may not he equipped to be a father a child and vice versa. This is where we talk about the grace to get vision. Sight and vision are not the same. Sight is physical and vision is not.
So in our younger years we have great sight to examine and spot your partners in the duty of reproducing like kind. Now as you age and nature presumes that you have answered your call and you have no business still examining. The sight declines for the following reasons.
1) Time to look is over.
2) you have seen enough to reason it out at this stage
3) Like Tony Iro said you need to see less so you can minimize the flaws in one another. notice how at this stage bald men begin to be your spec. nature has changed your taste buds.
4) Sight declines because you are meant to worry less about little things,so many others got this reason right we are blessed with so many wise people here.
The answer that I have that ministers to me so much comes from the distinction between sight and vision is the last answer. Like I said earlier, sight is physical it is basically the ability to see and process what you are seeing
How is it different from vision? Let us look at the definition of vision:
1)The act or power of sensing what you see
2)the act or power of anticipating that which will or may come to be:e.g.
prophetic vision; the vision of an entrepreneur.
3)an experience in which a personage, thing, or event appears vividly or credibly to the mind, although not actually present, often under the influence of a divine or other agency:
a heavenly messenger appearing in a vision.
4)something seen or otherwise perceived during such an experience: for example
The vision revealed its message.
5)a vivid, imaginative conception or anticipation:e.g.
visions of wealth and glory.
I know at this point you are understanding where I am heading. Let us look at the verb envision to drive home our point.
Envision means to picture mentally.
Now let us use the above definitions to uncover the biggest mystery.
Why does our sight decline at this age and our vision grow?
Remember that girl in her prime? She looked at the mirror and it was her reflection in the mirror that gave her an into her beauty and power. Her reaction to that sight was the confidence in the way she swayed her hips, when you are young, your affirmation comes from your perception of how you look and how other people relate to you based on your looks.
Now something changes with time when you no longer see that, nature reduces how much disappointments you are beholding and increases your vision, your ability to see beyond now and call forth the gift of the future even when your dry bones question your strength.
Yes at this stage like Stella Chidi Mbakwe Ohanenye
Said we are spirit beings. At this time we no longer relate with the world around us but confer with every force in the past that has conspired to get us where we are as we gain the peace to relinquish and travel light towards the light.
Finally, the choice is yours, will you heed to the time changes even if you can pass for a 20 year old
and start your spiritual journey or will you continue your poor attempt at defying nature. Remember you cannot cheat nature!
Well I have said a lot and I do not know if I am making sense to you . Let me know what you think keep reading.
God bless you,
