Eyes are like windows to the world. Eyes cannot see. It is the mind; it is the consciousness that sees through the windows of our eyes. We are the seer and need to see with the eyes of love and forgiveness. If we see with the eyes of anger and jealousy, hate and disgust, our physical vision will be impaired, and the mind cannot feel at ease; it will be experiencing dis-ease!
We create our dis-eases in the mind through our faulty vision of life. It is easier to get the eyes treated and the vision corrected, but it takes our deepest resolve and continual mindful living to set the inner eye right.
We are driven by our attitude because it is a deep-seated pattern. Right attitude helps us see a joyful world, and wrong attitude brings a miserable world to our vision. Selfishness and jealousy feed each other and blur our vision so we are unable to see the reality of our Oneness.
Mindfulness gives us that vision of Oneness, that ability to develop a special power to see positive possibilities in the midst of pain and negativity. That is the process of empowerment.
No problem is ever as big as when our perception and affirmation blow it out of proportion. The more we talk about the problem that bothers us, the more we think about it from the myopic vision of egocentric mind, and the more we aggravate the negative energy and grosser vibrations.
But when we pause, take deep breaths, flow with the breaths, and then shift the thought of the problem to one of joy that the Higher Intelligence has taken it over, the solution is right here and now!
Mind Power is essentially the strong belief that “I can do it!” If we think that we can do something, we will be able to do it. The history of mankind shows that those who won had the strong belief, power of mind, and perseverance to realize their long-term vision of life.
Spirituality gives us that long-term vision, that ability to develop a special power to see positive possibilities in the midst of pain and negativities. True love of Spirit will open our vision beyond the labels that mind creates. Our pristine soul within sees good in everything, for everything in its place is a creation of the Higher Intelligence. Soul vision is true Divine vision. When we see through our mind we see good and bad, sinner and saint, rich and poor, but in mindful, meditative calmness our soul vision opens up, we see our Oneness and love everything without judgment. We humans are born to live a soulful life of equanimity and peace. Evoke peace within and gift it to the world as your peace offering!
