There is so much more to seeing than what meets the eye…

No man can say his eyes have had enough of seeing, his ears their fill of hearing.   — Ecclesiastes 1:8
 
We see things with our eyes, but there is so much more to seeing…
Father Richard Rohr says there is third-eye seeing… 
 —–
“Third-eye seeing is the way the mystics see. They do not reject the first eye (thought or sight); the senses matter to them, but they know there is more. Nor do they reject the second eye (the eye of reason, meditation, and reflection); but they know not to confuse knowledge with depth or mere correct information with the transformation of consciousness itself. The mystical gaze builds upon the first two eyes—and yet goes further. This is third-eye seeing.Third-eye seeing happens whenever, by some wondrous ‘coincidence,’ our heart space, our mind space, and our body awareness are all simultaneously open and nonresistant. I like to call it presence.”
