I have always wondered as to how God created our eyes as the best camera in the world. No technology in the world has been able to beat our eyes to capture pictures around us. The best of cameras I have tried in my life so far have not come even near the beautiful capture of our eyes. It captures in three dimension or may be four. As apart from the three dimensional picture, it also conveys an emotion to our brain to appreciate the beauty.
Let us start with nature. We can neither capture sunrise nor sunset with a camera as well as our eyes displays it to us. The clouds in the sky, the trees, the mountains, the rivers, the valleys and et all are picturized by our eyes like no camera ever can. The birds, the animals, the insects or even the landscape around us is best visualised by our eyes. I sometimes wonder as how to express my gratitude to God to bestow me with such a beautiful pair of eyes.
In my view the beauty of a human being is best seen through their eyes. As they say, the eyes speak more than a thousand words. We can feel the emotions of a person through their eyes. When in joy, our eyes sparkle. When in sorrow, our eyes are moist and give away our sadness. A mother’s eyes expresses care without a word uttered to her child. Similarly a father’s stern eyes may deter a child from doing a wrong.
At the workplace, we also speak through our eyes. Many a times we need not utter a word to say we agree or disagree on any issue as our eyes will convey it to the other person even before we utter a word on the subject. Eyes symbolise words through expressions. If you look at pieces of art – a painting or a sculpture, the artist conveysher or his emotions through the eyes of the art. Just by changing the design of the eyes the meaning of an art piece can be changed.
The communication between a small kid and her parents are primarily through the eyes especially when the kid is yet to utter her first word in life. Children can express all forms of emotions through their eyes easily. They laugh, cry, get angry or express sorrow by the wink of their eyes. Eyes express more than words. Words do not carry emotions with them but eyes do.
Most of us have experienced or seen lovers communicating through their eyes. It may be classmates in college or colleagues at the workplace. They may not even talk to each other in the presence of others. But the communication through their eyes signifies the intensity of their love for each other. This has been picturized very well in movies and plays and described eloquently in songs and poetry around the world.
As in the photo above, the eyes speak for themselves.
While all senses of the human body – sight, touch, sound, taste andsmell are equally significant , sight through our eyes is the most beautiful. Let us be blessed to admire nature and beauty in life through our eyes forever. Let our eyes inspire us to look at the world through the beauty of other human beings, animals and things. Let us learn to love other humans, animals and plants through the positive expression of our eyes.
Let our eyes give us sight and insight.
