   Vision. This is a broader term than visual acuity or eyesight. In addition

   to sharpness of sight or simply a description of the ability to see, the

   term "vision" usually includes a wider range of visual abilities and skills.

   These include contrast sensitivity, the ability to track moving objects

   with smooth and accurate eye movements, color vision, depth perception,

   focusing speed and accuracy, and more.

   If this more inclusive (and accurate) definition of "vision" is used, what

   most people call "20/20 vision" should really be called "20/20 visual

   acuity." Realistically, that probably won't happen. For better or worse,

   the term "20/20 vision" is likely here to stay.

   TURNING to my own VISION for 2020 however • ALL that I can say once
   we
understand ourselves • [IS] that we must NOW encourage others

   to seek a similar level of understanding as a result of ...

 
   ... in order that a new model & method of wealth creation, mutually
   beneficial to all, can be established.

    the mind of wisdom be the centre of our diverse personalities.
    If our minds are strong, then the various parts of our lives will be held
    firmly to their proper courses, and there will be no chance of deviation."

  Every seed is awakened and so is all animal life.

  It is through this mysterious power that we too have our being and

  we  therefore yield to our animal neighbours the same right as ourselves,

  to inhabit this land.

Indigenous cultures have known for thousands of years the importance of staying connected to nature for the sake of the human race. Today more than ever, societies have taken on a dangerous human-centered perspective that might lead us to our own demise. In this month's second expert opinion piece, Four Arrows, a professor at the College of Leadership Studies at Fielding Graduate University, explains why adopting a complementary Indigenous perspective is the key to knocking down societal structures that harm us and the planet, and keep us from living more connected lives.
