Your filtering process is crucial to your success

Our blog this month gives you a chance to challenge the way you interpret your daily living.

Our word this month is filter used as a noun or as a verb – Filter comes from early 15c., from Old French filtre and directly from Medieval Latin filtrum “felt,” which was used to strain impurities from liquid.

Your filtering process is crucial in the success of your life’s purpose.

To explore a slightly different line of thinking on this subject, I will introduce you to some of our of life’s wondrous journey. We were travelling through the magnificent Karri Trees bushland in Western Australia; the dirt road was dappled with a mosaic pattern of sun and shade. The sun filtering its way through the canopy causing a shimmer on everything it touched. We could feel the warm and the cool as we passed through.

We arrived at our destination the Ngilgi caves at Yallingup Western Australia. Here we did adventure caving for nearly 4 hours. We crawled, we climbed, we squeezed as if we were being filtered through the same rock crevices water for thousands of years had been seeping through.

Filtration gives purity and clarity to all things processed .

The awe inspiring formations of calcium deposits and the crystal clear water showed us instantly the perfect alliance of the earth’s natural filtration process.

Many things have a filtering process to fulfil the required purpose. Can you think of different types of filters and their uses? Here are just a few, water filter, vacuum cleaner, oil and fuel filters, air conditioners, cigarette filters, camera lens filters, sunglasses, screening of phone calls, filters on emails, filtering of information.

What about our body? The air we breathe is filtered through our nose and lungs, our food through our digestive tract.

The correct filter used wisely brings clarity that ripples through into all areas of your lives and those around you.

Our mind, our brain, our intellect are all filtered through education, our spiritual wellbeing through faith, our morals and substance through our values, social behaviours from our culture.

If saying all the above is true then we should be completely healthy, intellectually well developed, spiritually well adapted, and have an absolutely clear image of our life’s purpose.

Unfortunately life is not so simple – sometimes these very same filters that are supposed to help the process actual hinder it and we must then seek ways to rectify it. First step is to recognise that there is a challenge, secondly build a solution and thirdly implement the solution.

What are your filters and how do you use them?

Are they hindering or helping your life’s purpose?

I pose these questions for you to ponder:

  • Emotionally, Spiritually, Physically, Intellectually what are your filters?
  • Do your filters remove the impurities of life?
  • Are your filters blocked or damaged?
  • How can you repair your damaged filtering system?
  • Are your filters giving you value added?
  • Are the filters yours or being imposed by others?

The challenge for you this month is to use your Words that Shine experience to re-establish your filtering system to its highest potential and move closer to your life’s purpose.

Your filtering process is crucial in the success of your life’s purpose.

Living life with passion
love

  1. Oi Jenny another blog o beauty this month that I really appreciate, so thanks, genius.
    Its a wonderful topic and focus of attention.
    We are bombarded in our lives with “stuff”
    And I feel great satisfaction in being capable, and I wish everyone this capability, to sieve out the useful from the useless items. Its a constant mindful practice.
    “Useful ” input consists of life enhancing, constructive or anabolic things. “Non useful” things are nonconstructive, life depleting or catabolic.
    With the help of my yoga practice I have learned, and I teach, how to distinguish on a momentary basis (all day long) whether what I thinking feeling doing is anabolic or catabolic.
    Filtering all senses is the practice and it comes with motivation and attention. It becomes a hobby.
    The danger is getting over zealous and too strict on this. That human tendency to exaggerate a hobby is to be watched really carefully:)
    The focus is to be brought back to forgiveness, optimism, gratitude for all gifts. I have a lifesustaining faith that everything has a place and a function in this world even if it looks repugnant, like war and disease.
    The forgiveness filter helps me to forgive myself of the ( yay! totally human) instinct for self protection. Then we can also forgive others for their limbic impulses too.
    Filtering means to me to use my lenses to glean all the healthy, life-giving and gifts out of what my senses perceive and leave the non life enhancing out of the viewfinder.
    The aim is the everyday celebration of the pure, loving and wholesome around me.
    Thanks for sharing Jenny.
