Windows of your soul
If our eyes truly are the window to our souls, shouldn’t we be more careful about what we look at? After all, your soul is precious. Scientists have demonstrated, through peering in, that our eyes really do reveal what our minds are doing, that we are indeed thinking and what is going on in our heads. Cameras can now also be screens. How long before our eyes are tracked as we watch a screen to manipulate our minds? To steer our choices? To touch our souls?
Happiness in things
Looking at things that give you joy will make you happy. So why not surround yourself with them and put them in your home?
Any object you consciously select over another one and that is fit for the same purpose shows your preference. Yes, your preference. Not theirs. But are your decisions still really yours? We are influenced by so many factors that it is not easy to cut out the noise. If we are coaxed to say why we selected one thing over another out loud we have to laugh at ourselves. Gullible fools are always other people.
Sometimes we see things that intoxicate us and yet we do not feel that we deserve to own them. They make us feel a little uncomfortable or we worry what others will think. A too-good-for me syndrome. Are we too concerned with the opinions of the rest of the tribe? Have others been steering us away from one thing and towards another? Do the same things still drive us all? Are we all just copying the people who seem to know what they are doing, without even realising it?
Go out into the shopping streets, peer through the windows, and trust your soul.
