ADF Dedicant Path Documentation – The Nine Virtues – Vision


“The ability to broaden one’s perspective to have a greater understanding of our place/roll in the cosmos, relating to past present and future.” – Our Own Druidry

“The act or power of anticipating that which will or may come to be: a vivid, imaginative conception or anticipation” –

To have vision is to look beyond the standard and imagine what could be.  There are no sacred cows to the visionary.  They do not accept “We’ve always done it that way” as a good reason for the continuation of actions or beliefs.  Visionaries tend to ask “why not” and in the absence of a valid answer, will do it their way despite tradition.  Having vision also requires one to be able to make connections between things and situations that others may not realize are there.  This allows a person to follow those connections to look beyond what most think of as normal and possible.  Suddenly the impossible becomes possible and maybe even probable and the word normal loses its meaning.  The visionary thinks “with so many possibilities how do you determine what is normal and what is not, it’s all arbitrary.”    A person with vision can also see the many facets of a given situation, not just the ones that are the most prominent or popular and can begin to put those together to get a more complete picture of the situation.  A true visionary also shares her insight with others.
