“This is why I speak to them in parables, because ‘they look but do not see and hear but do not listen or understand.” Matthew 13:13
during sunday mass, our parish priest shared with us in his homily that a human being has three kinds of eyes.
first is our set of physical of eyes. these eyes are the organs in our body that detect light which enables us to view the world. they send whatever they capture to the brain which translates it according to what we are able see.
second, is our inner eye. this is often referred to as our third eye. if our physical eyes are the windows to our world, our inner eye is the gate that leads to a higher consciousness such as visions, precognitions, out of body experiences, and clairvoyance which evokes our mental awareness that sometimes we don’t necessarily believe.
third, are our eyes of faith. these eyes enable us to see through the mysteries of our faith. the Blessed Trinity that there Three Persons in one God, the Immaculate Concepcion when Mary conceived through the Holy Spirit, and other such teachings that we cannot explain in human terms but still, our eyes of faith enable us to believe. to prove further the existence of our eyes of faith, the Lord said in Matthew 13:16-17 “But blessed are your eyes, because they see, and your ears because they hear. Amen I say to you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.”
apparently, there are times when the eyes that we have don’t function well, therefore we see things differently or we don’t see at all. there may be obstructions that hinder our full view. sometimes we ignore their importance that we eventually neglect them. or in time, they just fail as we age. whether, they are our physical eyes, our third eye or our eyes of faith, there are ways to keep them working for us as they are intended to. because if not, we will go blind and we won’t be able to see our way. and we will get lost.
as for our eyes of faith, in order for them to see clearly, the Holy Bible provides ways and means. we just need to pick it up, turn the pages and read. it’s most effective to give you the most beautiful eyes you’ve ever seen.
