be active: use the power of discernment

“Discernment is the activity of determining the value and quality of a certain subject or event, particularly the activity of going past the mere perception of something and making detailed judgments about that thing. As a virtue, a discerning individual is considered to possess wisdom, and be of good judgement; especially so with regard to subject matter often overlooked by others.” (Source)

We all have the power of discernment. However, a lot of us get caught up in surface situations, taking in the superficiality of an event without reaching to what our intuition says. We allow others in our ears. We think about the perception rather than the reality. We become insecure in our initial thought. This does not have to be the case. If we follow the gut and always try our best to see a given situation from an objective perspective, then we can see the full picture–our role in it and theirs and what we can do to change the situation for the better. This is an incredible power so take it with care and be thankful for it. Remember, we all have the power. We all do.
