Looking Deeply From the Inside Out.


If you look to your left and then to your right, what do you see? Do you see relatively the same photo image, but from one side and then other?  Or does this way of looking cause an imbalance? Or perhaps when you look straight ahead does periphery vision play a part and make the visible scene perfectly balanced? Do the eyes work in unison to make certain there is no misinformation? Do you perform symmetry as well as asymmetry? Eyes work both ways to give you the balance and the power of your eyes. Do you see distance well? Can you see minute details? How do you see the world?

When your delicate and intricate eyes open, deep through the eye lids, past the fluid produced by tear glands, past the cornea and the lens, over the iris into the pupil allowing the light to pass though the eye bringing you to connect with the eye mechanism also known as the inner eye, what do you see?

Look closely at the photograph at the beginning of this blog. It is a photograph of my inner eye. The Macula and Retina work in cooperation and if not, I will need help.  The Optic Nerve is my good friend bringing all of the outside sights to my brain, which begins to work the very moment it receives it to translate

On being nearsighted and seeing the world differently: They say youngsters suffer socially and educationally by not being able to see well at a distance. They do, take it from an expert, but that is another issue for another time.   There is a gift and the bright side of seeing magnification. I am severely myopic and my expertise comes from seeing the world up close and totally personal. My eyes serve as a full time magnifying glass.  Imagine what you would see with the world at full speed magnification. You might sit all day and watch ants working in and out of their hill. The workers carry twice and three times their weight. They are tireless little insects. You might see the bee unfolding its proboscis to suck out the nectar and stores it in a sack until it returns to the hive. Seeing the proboscis unfold is dramatic.  All of the sights up close are so mind spinning, it is being jet propelled continuously. It moves your heart and soul in ways distance seeing cannot. You become attuned to everything in magnification. How blessed is this type of seeing, as things take on a holiness. So elevated in knowledge, so clean and pure. Each day you enter a whole new world at an elevated and a deep level at the same time. You cannot share this profound world through any type of explanations, it is yours and you have been given a gift. How much of life do most of us get to see on this magnified level?  What should we hope to accomplish with this deeper level of understanding?

I have used my gift to enhance my productivity.  Many times I have not been understood, but that is only because those who have misunderstood have not seen the magnification and the pure holiness of seeing deeply.

I would like to suggest, perhaps you carry around a small magnifying glass and see what you see more deeply. I hope you enjoy the magnified world and decide to carry a magnifying glass on a permanent basis. Let me know.

    Sight is glorious, mostly, at times horrific leaving never-to-be forgotten images on the brain. Most galleries here now provide magnifying glasses enabling the viewer to see the amazing beauty of tiny objects celebrating each artist’s enormous skill.

    From Tom M.
    Was blessed with extremely good eyesight from birth. Not as good now. Have always been able to things in minute detail. I learned, however, that I didn’t always see the whole picture. The older I get the more I seem to see despite natural degeneration of my sight. Can’t see as far and the detail certainly isn’t what it used to be but I do “see” much more. That is a conundrum. Can’t be possible…. but it is. All one has to do is”LOOK”.
    Great article, btw. Thank you.

    April, My eye specialist said she became interested in eyes through photographs, too. She is amazed at the progress in eye medicine and what they can do to save eyesight.
    Love, Grandma Sheila

    Wow interesting. I never thought that would look like the inside of an eye!

      Carly, I have some more slides you can see also. The eye is very complex, doing an important job for us and we hardly think about it. I am so happy to share with you my interest in eyeballs.
