Looking Through Windows
It is said that the eyes are the windows of the soul. This is a fact, that is more real than you can possibly imagine, for to experience it, is to literally "go out of your mind" and beyond not only your wildest imagination, but everything you can possibly imagine in YOUR mind.
The true way of eternal life, is in the holy, supernatural presence of God, the true nature and divine characteristics of absolute love. A love that is far greater, than any love that man has ever known.
The only nature and character you can ever truly know, is the one that is within you. You can't truly know the nature and character within anyone else, until you overcome your self and are free of every spot of pride and thoughts that have their Source In Negativity (sin), and the shadow of doubt, for these are what cause our eye to be darkened and what we see in others, is overshadowed by the reflection of what is in us.
For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.1 Corinthians 13:12
We are told that the kingdom of God is within us and to "put on" the mind of Christ, which means that we are not to have a mind that is ruled and governed by the survival instinct of the flesh, pride, negative (sinful) thoughts, or the blemish of worldly desires and concerns, but a mind that is ruled and governed, in every thought, word and deed, by God's absolute love, virtuousness, peacefulness, gracefulness, graciousness and holiness, with true equanimity, humility and co-operativeness, without a "care in the world".
Only when we do this, can we walk in the light of Christ, without the self-consciousness that causes our mind to become darkened, projecting our own reflection upon others, from our own way of thinking and understanding, that is clouded with our own pride, sin and the worldly cares and concerns that come from the shadow of doubt, or the survival instinct of the flesh and all it desires for its survival.
When you truly know the reality of eternal life, beyond the shadow of any doubt, then you will find that everything you think you know, is merely a shadow of the truth and has no power. The only true power there is, is the supernatural power of God's absolute, divine love, that overwhelms your senses, sweeps you off your feet and transforms your character in the blink of an eye, through the manifestation of the absolute, virtuous characteristics of His absolute love, in which you have no thought of what you can do for your self, but what you will do for others, with the heart of a child, full of true, rapturous joy.
Your eternal soul, is the inner child of God, which in its purest essence, is a child-at-heart and has no fear for it's survival, but lives in absolute innocence, faith and trust, of the supernatural provision of our heavenly Father, who loves us all equally, with a love that is more powerful, passionate and purposeful, than you can possibly imagine. It's called having the mind of Christ and being without any self-consciousness or self-image.
