Windows

“Don’t throw stones at your neighbors if your own windows are glass.”

Benjamin Franklin

Windows

I use to play a game called “I spy” with my little eyes…

One of my favorite memories of my childhood was our big picture window

It had a two way view

You can see me

Or I could see you

Sometimes it was dirty

Sometimes it was clean

But it didn’t stop me from looking it just shifted my view of how I could see

Each time I looked out of the window I made the decision to choose which set of eyes I would use in that moment:

Piercing eyes

Judging eyes

Emphatic Eyes

Crossed Eyes

Rolling Eyes

Condemning Eyes

Loving Eyes

Forgiving Eyes

Sometimes we tend to look through our windows with the wrong mindset

We all have windows in our lives so be careful of the stones you toss

Remember some glass is very fragile and easily broken

And some you can toss a rock off of and it will bounce right off

But either way in the end it will come back and hit you

Food for thought

Shades/blinds are also directional…what is behind your shade?

I was asked “what do you see in that person?” My reply was “everything that you don’t!” Angela Lambert

It’s not about what you look at but what you see! Blind people can view the beauty in something that those who have sight tend to overlook.

Our eyes all see things differently. It can be two people looking at the same thing and they both see something different. When I see people the first thing I zero in on is their hair because that is what I do as a profession. My sister on the hand looks right at the teeth because she works in the field of dentistry. Who can look at someone and see their heart? No one because the heart is hidden. So how do you know who a person really is just by looking at them?

Life is about soul searching and getting to know people for who they are not for what they show! You may look at person and not know they just lost a loved one! Or that their job is on the line. Or that their life is in shambles! You don’t know if they are fighting a demon of suicide! Looking and seeing can be deceiving but it’s your eyes so use them accordingly! Just remember if the mirror was placed in your face will you be looking or seeing!

Be mindful how you view others. Never walk past a stranger and not speak you may have just made their day! Never look down on someone because they do not look like you!

The thought I would like to leave you with is that maybe it’s time to stop using the deception of the eyes to view what is hidden.
