No impasse in Mind

Among one’s first lessons in driving school is to lift the eyes from the end of the hood of the car in order to have a wider and broader perspective of the road. The drive is then smoother and steadier, eliminating unnecessary braking, because the objects you encounter along the way no longer appear as scary, looming obstacles.

In the Bible, lifting one’s eyes often signifies seeking God and a higher, divine view of present good. Christ Jesus explained, “Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest” (John 4:35 ). From God’s perspective, there are never any obstacles to unfolding good. God’s goodness is present and perpetual.
