But do you realize that we are granted with eyes for a better reason than that?
Our eyes are actually meant to observe rather than to just see or watch. It all comes together with the mind.
After all, the mind controls all the organs in your body system, including your eyes. If we just let our minds do the work without us making some effort to ‘mould’ our minds, that is when we will only view the surface of things.
When you watch a television program or a video, all you would do is watch, and eventually, you would not comprehend what you have just watched. When you are writing or typing something, all you would do is write or type it, and then find yourself creating spelling or grammatical errors. When you see someone doing something, all you would do is see it, without knowing whether he or she is doing the right thing.
On the other hand, if we can set our minds to work together with our eyes, we can be more observant of our surroundings. You would be able to understand the message behind the television show or video, take notice of the errors in your write-ups and immediately amend them, and judge someone’s actions and take actions whenever necessary.
Our minds can play tricks on us, but we have the willpower to avoid being tricked. Therefore, always set your minds to work well with your eyes, as that will contribute to your self-consciousness and intelligence in seeing the underlying messages behind something.
Now here is a little something that could probably test how observant you are. Everyone, sit back, relax, enjoy the show… and do not just watch. Observe!
