Your Eyes Really Are the Window to Your Soul
But long before scientists confirmed it, the expression “The eyes are the windows to the soul” has been around. In Matthew 6:22-23:
“The eye is the lamp of the body. You draw light into your body through your eyes, and light shines out to the world through your eyes. So if your eye is well and shows you what is true, then your whole body will be filled with light.
But if your eye is clouded or evil, then your body will be filled with evil and dark clouds. And the darkness that takes over the body of a child of God who has gone astray—that is the deepest, darkest darkness there is.”
If you look deeply within someone’s eyes you can see the person’s sincerity and truth. What you’re seeing is their inner essence, or soul. You can see if they are coming from love or other motivations. The eyes are the space where your true identity shines out and allows others to see your how brightly or dimly you are manifesting the splendid qualities of soul.
The next time you engage with another person be sure to look into their eyes during the conversation, as that is where you will see their light shining dimly or brightly.
