The eyes are the windows of the SOUL. This pandemic has forced all of us to look deeply into each other eyes when communicating, facial expressions are hidden behind our masks, lip reading is not an option and so our eyes and our ears have become keener in discerning communication.
I often think of this when speaking to people because depending on how open they are is reflected in their eyes. You can detect a smile and a sparkle in the eyes, a sadness or anger as well. The eyes reflect emotion and we have been forced into focusing our understanding here.
The eyes are the windows of the SOUL. But often I cannot see beyond the human expression, occasionally there is a brief glimmer of the eternal being standing in front of me. Once in a blue moon someone lets me venture into their spiritual world through their eyes. Beyond the human emotion is a sea as vast as the night sky, the soul swims effortlessly through this sea of LOVE surfacing as compassion.
There are gifts in darkness, often they are hidden and hard to open when we are so consumed with the immediate pain of our humanness, but here, in this time, a time that will be written about and not forgotten by historians, we have gifts to open, the chance to connect with each other through the windows of our SOULS.
