Day Twenty Seven; Soul in the eyes of people

22 Mar



Today we were to look at the faces of people and see their souls.

Don’t laugh.

Imagine a couple of thousand people running around gazing deep into the eyes of store clerks.

I went for meditation today and looked deep into the ‘instruments’ eyes.

He’s a chubby guy with smooth skin and a silky voice. He’s from Madagascar or Mauritius and speaks french. Gorgeous accent.

His eyes glaze over after the reading of the ‘murli’, soft music in the background, a picture of light rays eminating from a point on the wall seems to shimmer.

I’m asking myself why this man left his family, dropped out of life, attached himself to BapDada so completely that he lives like a monk with the Brahma Kumaris. How is this different from Monks and Nuns.

I’m staring into his eyes and I feel obscene –  like at any second I’m going to find out all the secrets that make him who he is.

I do not see his soul though, I see his shiney forehead.

I’m sure that ‘soul’ exists –  my sister looked different alive from dead.

I wonder what the eyes of the Soldier who killed those kids in Afghanistan look like.

I wonder what the eyes of the man who shot those Jewish kids in France are saying.

I think my eyes are melanchoic and sad.

What are yours like?

Jesus has the kind eyes of someone who knows he’s deeply loved.

    Who was it who said, “The eyes are the windows of the soul.”? I dunno, but I do know that Jesus’ eyes are like none other’s. Jesus looks at me with bifocals. Jesus sees me as I am, and at the same time he sees me as who I could be. Sometimes I wish I had those sort of glasses! Wouldn’t it be great to be able to look into someone’s soul, and see them as they are, but without making a judgment, see them as all they could be, and then be an encourager of the person, so that s/he might achieve that?

    Sometimes I am so embarrassed for Jesus to look into my eyes, but his eyes are so riveting that i cannot avoid them. I am sometimes amazed that he could still love me, knowing what he knows about me. That’s when those bifocals come in handy, I guess. And the great thing about those glasses is that they are not rose-colored. They don’t show things better (or worse) than they are – they reveal things exactly as they are, and simultaneously they allow the wearer to see exactly how things could be. Amazing. Why don’t we ask Jesus tonight where he got his, so we can each buy a pair? 😆

    See you tonight.

      Ah, this is great!

      Jesus in bifocals!

      It’s so good, I’m gonna share. Wonderful, nothing to add.

      See you tomorrow.

    Very good thought about the ones who killed all of those people. I think it would be very scary to look into their eyes. Maybe one who kills innocents like that have no soul. Maybe their soul already left them.
