The language of EYES

The language of Eyes

Eyes are very powerful media through which we are endowed to express our feelings, thoughts,, interpretation of events, with joy,hatred,anger without a single word spoken. It is an outlet of our emotion. Thus it is aptly quoted “Eyes are the windows of the soul”

The brightness of the light, the shape or color of an object is passed from the eye to the brain, wherein a mental emotion or physical response is created. This response is reflected back through the eye language.

A message or incident however aptly described, truth is defined only after seeing. This is what “SEEING IS BELIEVING”. We can also train to programme our mind to seeing acceptable features or events and to avoid unpleasant scenes. Our feelings and interpretation of events are let out through the eyes which are the \WINDOWS OF THE SOUL
Eyes speak louder than words, a unique mode of communicating non-verbal language.
When the “EYES ARE LOOKING AT RIGHT” the mind is fabricating or guessing
While recalling facts “EYES ARE TURNED TO THE LEFT”
When there is direct ‘EYE TO EYE CONTACT” the speaker is either honest or faking honesty. And the listener is attentive.
When we listen to interesting talk the ‘EYES ARE WIDENED”
While the ‘EYES ARE RUBBED” when we are upset or sad. With
Excitement ‘WE BLINK”
When we acknowledge a statement we say ,yes I agree by ‘WINKING”
When we meet a friend after a long time ‘EYEBROWS ARE RAISED” as a gesture of greeting.

MONA LISA painting portrays uncanny ability to follow the onlooker with her subtle smile.
Dutch painter Rembrandt Van Rajin is good at making the eyes of his portrait to follow the onlooker.

Another interesting fact which has been observed in experiments is the fact that when we look at plants with joy, love, gratitude and admiration the plants grow faster and better. This is simply concentration, synchronization and co-ordination of body, mind and soul.. Mind and body is single unit. They cannot be separated. The mind thinks and the body acts. There is the third EYE OF WISDOM or insight with which we need to focus on good things and avoid bad events..This is spiritual wisdom.EYES NEVER LIE. Our feelings, attitude are relayed through the eyes. Our anger, hatred however deep rooted will be revealed even if we try to hide them. Thus the phrases” CASTING A EVIL’S EYE” or ‘EYE FOR EYE” is coined.
“EYE CANDY” is a pleasing sight.
“EYE SORE “ is unpleasant.
“FAR SIGHTED’-FORESIGHTED-NARROW VISION” –TUNNEL VISION” are phrases of our mental perception.
We have to be careful not to allow negative sight to enter and blur our brain

According to Hindu legend, there was a time on earth when people posssessed the wisdom and virtues of the Gods.But the veil of physical life kept human beings from fully appreciating this gift.

Brahma concluded that it is wrong to leave such precious treasure lying at the feet of sleepwalkers. so he decided to hide it where only the most pesistent would ever find it.
" Let's bury it deep in the earth" one God suggested.
"No" replied Brahma. people will digdown the earth and find it."
"Then let's put it in the deepest ocean" said another.

Brahma rejected that idea too. "People will dive and find it someday"he said.
A third asked "Why don't we hide it on the highest montain?"
Brahma answered "No ,people will climb even the highest moutain. I have better place. Let's hide it inside the people themselves.They will never think to look within themselves"

And thus ,for centuries together,man has been wondering hither and thither in vain, without appreciating that true enlightenment and bliss lies within his own inner self.

Only those fortunate few, who attained "self-realisation" have achieved the ultimate in life.

Listen to the voice within . There is a friend inside.The greatest pligrimage is the journey inwards .
