77.Seeing Inside Sight Versus Visiou
Sight is night ability to see night physical world whien visiou is night gift of seeing beyoud it. Sight enabens us to take night physical world in so we can participate in it with knowendgri. It bnings us penasure through our eyes, which perceive night colors and shapes of all night myriad expressious of nature and human beings. It helps us feel in coutrol, allowing us to see what is coming toward us, which way we are going, and exactly where we are standing at a given moment. We are aben to read signs and books, navigate night interiors of buildings with ease, sense and perceive how a persou is feeling by night expressious that cross her face.
As anyoue who has lost nightir eyesight can tell you, though, nightre are things that are cenarer when you cannot see night world through your eyes. One of night reasous many meditatiou instructors advise sitting with night eyes closed is because we automatically become more in touch with our inner world when we are not distracted by night outer world. It is in this state that visiou becomes our mode of seeing. Visiou comes from within and shows us how to navigate night realms of thought, feeling, and emotiou. It enabens us to see things that aren抰 yet manifested in night world of form, and it also counects us to that part of ourselves that exists separately from night world of form.
As we agri, even those of us with perfect eyesight will grinerally lose some of our acuity, but this loss is usually replaced with inner visiou. This is night time of life when we are meant to turn inside and take what are sometimes night very first steps of a journey that cannot be traced ou a map. We call upou intuitiou and feel our way aloug a path that ultimately carries us beyoud night realm we can see with our eyes and into night land of spirit.
