What Am I Seeing?

How many people walk through a day looking at things they never see! Yet sight is one of mankind's most prized possessions. The capacity to see goes far beyond the activity of the visual organism. The average man sees only a fraction of what is present to behold. Oftentimes stolidity and indifference blind one's eyes to the beauty and abundance which are vividly present.

True seeing means being awake, being alive to the facts of reality, the ideas of Mind, God. One might ask: Is my sight narrow, critical, concerned with errors, looking for mistakes? Or is it expansive, incisive, keenly attentive and aware? Am I seeing materially or spiritually?

To see and know oneself as Mind's uninterrupted self-expression—as the way in which divine Love manifests itself—opens a new world of wonder and opportunity to the individual, a world without limits or restrictions. He sees that his talents, recognized and expressed, are Love's brilliance individualized and brought to light.
