When you look through eyes of fear, the world is fear. Yet, miraculously, through eyes of love, that same world is transformed to love. How can this be?
Awakening to love.
Your thoughts direct your gaze. Your gaze creates the world in which you live. Together, our collective gaze creates the world we share.
A simpler way of saying this: Only that which you can see is real for you. Therefore, only that to which you pay attention (with your gaze) is real.
When you pay attention to love – love increases in the world. When you pay attention to fear – fear increases.
This naturally invites the question:
Are you saying we should turn a blind eye to suffering? Are you telling us to ignore the trouble in the world?
Of course not. And how could you – for when you notice suffering, your gaze is on the suffering.
Here’s what to do:
Look at the suffering and the trouble and the problems that plague your attention through the eyes of love.
When you do, you will see the miracle of the gaze of love.
