Stop. Look. Observe crystal beauty in others’ eyes. The eye refracts light, receiving, reflecting, and emitting energy. The eye is a conduit, a meter registering visible manifestation of our essence, allowing us to share together the light of our soul. Indispensable.
Eager to connect, we instinctively gaze upon our newborn’s face, looking into baby’s eyes.
Baby delights in mama’s approach, and watches her sun set with sinking heart. But mama turns and glances back; in that instant, through the crib rails and teddy bears, baby looks her straight in the eye. Baby reciprocates naturally, pleased to gaze into ours. We anticipate that flash of realization in baby’s eyes, recognition; baby’s heart speeds, a sharp intake of breath; trying to reach out, the eyes widen slightly, the mouth is animated, and soon, the lovely word, “Mama.”
What a leash is to a puppy, the eye is to your child. The Shepherd said to King David:
“…I will guide thee with mine eye.”
As Jehovah, so do.
