"The best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don't tell you what to see." Alexandra K. Trenfor
KTFA Post By JaceyB » September 10th, 2013, • [Post 207] Good Morning Family...
I haven't posted in quite some time... I used to a lot... 4.5 years ago when we first joined Frank and you on this amazing journey. After a couple of years I had to take a step back and regain some life as I had allowed my days to be consumed with hours and hours on the computer hoping for some news on the dinar.
Since then I have been a faithful listener of the CC's and chat frequently with a few close friends I've made through our investment. I also stay on the heartbeat of our investment by reading the articles, reading Franks and your posts that my sweet hubby sends to me.
I will confess that many times I'm confused and a little frustrated trying to understand what is being shared with us.
Sometimes I wish for "plain English" as my decoder ring doesn't always work. But then there are those times when the light bulb pops on and I have an Ah Ha moment where it all makes sense.

Today, I read a quote... and the very first thought I had after doing so, was hearing Frank and others saying... Look over there... or pointing to a picture or a note he scribbled and not saying much more.
Many times I would look... only seeing the object and not understanding the unspoken or unwritten words... leaving me frustrated and disheartened... wishing I had eyes to see what was being shown.
But after reading this quote I realized..... I have the potential of seeing what is being shown. I may need a few more pieces of the puzzle to make it understood...but I Have The Potential of Seeing and Learning and Understanding!
Here is the quote: "The best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don't tell you what to see." Alexandra K. Trenfor
How profound! Something so simple and sometimes so frustrating... yet so full of Potential and Hope of not only seeing for myself but also the potential of seeing something even greater than what the teacher could even show you!
I then thought of those silly Magic Eye posters that were set up in kiosks in malls back in the 90's.... people crowded around trying their darnedest to see what was "beyond" the blur of colors that was displayed upon the poster.
Everyone else seemed to be able to see something... Ooooing and Ahhhing at what they were seeing... yet here I was... WILLING to see it but unable to see it. What was wrong with me that I could not see what everyone else was seeing. I tried so hard...looked at it at every angle.. walking around... standing still... staring till my eyes hurt... and still nothing!
It was not until the shop owner told me... relax ... and even allow your eyes to relax a little... even if they blur a little when you do... and you'll begin to see beyond the layers... in fact the images will begin to reveal themselves in 3 dimensional form as if they were ascending and or receding from the paper they were printed on.
This "teacher" didn't tell me what I was going to see... he just pointed me in the direction... instructed me to Relax ... and allow my eyes to work WITH the picture... something so simple yet so profound...
As I did what was instructed the image began to come forward and then it would disappear just as quickly. This process happened again and again until I completely settled my mind in order to Accept the Full Bigger Picture. I stopped "trying" and started "allowing".
I know this has been a long post, but I just had to share this with You. Especially if you have been like me... trying too hard to SEE and UNDERSTAND.
Today, I'm choosing to allow my eyes to blur a little... so I can allow God to show me, to reveal to me what He wants me to know and understand. Won't you join me in relaxing just a little... and letting go of the "trying" too hard?
Lastly, I must share this one life-changing event that has just happened in my life. My mom has been very ill the last 6 months... finally after her 6th visit to the hospital in as many months we have had to make the decision to move her into a hospice facility.
Last Saturday night I spent the night with her and throughout the night she was in a half sleep and talked random utterances most of the night, mostly of recalling old memories and friends.
But at one quiet point during the middle of the night she said, "Tell JaceyB not to try so hard in this world." I was stunned. I answered her and said I will tell her.
And today... I hear it again in my heart as I write this post to You. I hope You hear it too... don't try so hard in this world... relax... God is Here and He alone is your Teacher and He will point You where You need to look... Join me in being Amazed at what We will see when we relax, blur our eyes a little and Trust!
