A word which the ophthalmologists are familiar with but cannot diagnose it spontaneously because ‘palin which means again and opsia which means seeing’ is briefly described as the persistent recurrence of a visual image after the stimulus has been removed. It denotes the picture that retains in our mind even when there is no prompt event or image.
We do carry an imagery of our favourite event, character or person in mind, which is normal. But if in their absence we have a constant provoking visualisation or urge that is distressing our routine activity. We all have had past hurts and brokenness which still lingers in our mind. Words that once step out act like a two-edged sword which pierces the enemy and disrupts your harmony.
Bible says in the book of Philippians 3:13 “No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead. Never get too close to materialism or hyper-spiritualism cause both will leave a deterrent effect on your mind and in your life creating an imagery of a non-existent and fictional illusion in thought. Optimize your visual field to seek truth and live in the present and not aid the past and its dominance. God bless you.
