Your eyes are truly the windows to your soul
Most people who lack a loving heart and soul are beset with a physical anomaly that goes unnoticed by the unaware. Did you know that when you perceive something beautiful and attractive your eyes dilate? What significance does this have to the enlightened? Maybe we should say what is the word enlighten imply, maybe in-lighten, maybe a state of super sight that allows one to see behind the motives of those without scruples. When we behold good, our eyes dilate, when we see the beauty around us, our eyes dilate, when we are hate filled and see the world with jaundiced eyes, our eyes become closed down, or pinpointed. There used to be an old wives tale told to young women, which was “if a man tells you he loves you and his eyes are pinpointed (not dilated) beware.” The old gem sellers of old new this as well, for when the buyers perceived a particular stone of some beauty the seller watched his eyes dilate and of course, the price went sky high for that particular stone. Card players have long known this and that’s why you see so many of them wearing sunglasses at the table, because when your dealt a royal flush, your eyes don’t lie, they react with dilation.
So you must be thinking, where is this going? Well, it’s a mystery that the early Christians were well aware of and they taught their followers to work to achieve this higher consciousness and eye dilation.
Read these scriptures in light of this and you’ll see a mystery unfold of wisdom and understanding.
‘THE LIGHT OF THE BODY IS THE EYE; THEREFORE WHEN THINE EYE IS SINGLE (TOTALLY DILATED-RON’S NOTE) THY WHOLE BODY ALSO IS FULL OF LIGHT, BUT WHEN THINE EYE IS EVIL THEY BODY ALSO IS FULL OF DARKNESS.
TAKE HEED THEREFORE THAT THE LIGHT WHICH IS IN THEE BE NOT DARKNESS.
IF THY WHOLD BODY THEREFORE BE FULL OF LIGHT, HAVING NO PART DARK, THE WHOLE SHALL BE FULL OF LIGHT, AS WHEN THE BRIGHT SHINING OF A CANDLE DOTH GIVE THEE LIGHT.”
(Luke 11:34=36 & Matt 6:22-23)
In him was life: and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness comprehendeth it not.
He that saith he is in the light, and hateeth his brother, is in darkness even until now.
He that loveth his brother abideth in the light and there is none occasion of st¨ambling in him.
But he that hateth his brother is in darkness and walketh in darkness and knoweth not whither he goeth, because THAT DARKNESS HATH BLINDED HIS EYES” (1JOHN 29:9-11)
You see we need to understand the real meaning of these scriptures and realize that we are “children of light” and we are called to “walk in light and love”.
This is why we are told to dwell on good in the Scriptures. because as we do this keeps our eyes open and the light of life and God in our temples. (The temple of God is you and the temples of your head are wherein the godhead dwells. “know ye not that you are the temple of God?”
The following scripture makes it clear what we are to dwell upon to keep our eyes dilated and light filled:
Finally, Brethen, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely (beautiful, ron’s note) whatsoever things are are of good report; IF THERE BE ANY VIRTUE, AND IF THERE BE ANY PRAISE, THINK ON THESE THINGS… ·(Philippians 4:8)
So, my friends, go forth in faith, confidence and courage and walk in light and truth, for this is our commission.
The faith of the saints is in these simple scriptures:
“All things work together for Good for them that love God.”
Faith in Good is faith in God,for God is Good, God is Love, God is light, all knowing, all powerful and all Present. That power, knowing, and being resides in you, trust it’s infinite wisdom and discard the finite wisdom of this world.
Walk in light, love and dwell on the good. If a man has 9 faults and one virtue, dwell upon the virtue, for that is all that will redeem him.
A beautiful poem by Edwin Markham says it best:
He drew a circle that shut me out=
Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.
But Love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle that took him in.
