We are taught that our senses are for RECEIVING information, and maybe energy too, into our body. But it seems to me that senses can work both ways, and we can also TRANSMIT through our senses.
The eye transmits and receives radiation, in the form of high frequency light waves.
Do you know that feeling when someone is looking intently at you, and you turn and see that they are? Do you ever look at someone and then they look up because they feel your look upon them ?
You can feel a “penetrating stare”. You can “shoot a glance”, at someone. You can “look into each others eyes”. You can feel someone’s eyes “boring a hole in your head”. People have “piercing” eyes. You can “look right through” someone. “That look she gave me”. A look of “daggers”, maybe. You can “throw” a look, like throwing a spear. “If looks could kill”. His eyes “beamed” at me. He “winked”, like an interruption in a beam of light.
Eyes with intent send out a beam of something, a signal, which is picked up by the receiver. It can be kind, or menacing. You can send out love or hate with your eyes, and maybe you can heal or kill too. I am sure you can send out mixed messages too, with a false acted layer of love masking an intent of hate.
I think the transmission probably works by the eye taking in light rays, and reflecting them out again towards its exact point of focus, to exactly where the eyes are trained, like a gun is trained on someone or something.
Focussing light beams through a lens can be powerful enough to start a fire. (See Moon Eye Money).
You can lock eyes with another, which creates a great intensity of love or hate. Lock and look are similar words, and a look with intent locks you onto the receiver and opens up a connection.
Your eyes are like two internet screens, you can receive, and you can CLICK or press RETURN, or ENTER to send. Like wifi, the transmitted beam is invisible to our eyes, yet we still seem to know that we have received a look.
Stars look down on us. “The stars in the bright sky LOOK down where He lay” goes the Christmas carol. We look up to the sky. You look up information, and you look down your Nose, like the stars look down their nose at us. Starry staring stars stare at us, and we YES back with our eyes, looking up at the stars, our masters. A Star is an aster like a m.aster. By looking back to the star, we say YES. Did you look at that shoooting star ? Stars twinkle and wink at us. What are they doing to us, I wonder ?
Stars of stage and screen beam out at us, the audience, but they are far more controlled than us by the millions of pairs of eyes that are cast back upon them.
It is rude to stare in so many cultures. And we are told not to LOOK at the Sun because it will make us blind with its penetrating beams, and ruin our sense of vision. The Sun is the symbol of daytime vision which dominates our lives.
Eyes are the sense of YES (Please see The Eyes and the Nose). You avert your eyes to say NO, you avert your eyes to avoid engagement, to avoid the power of the locking together of eyes, and the agreement to engage in battle or love. In some cultures, the woman’s look at a man is taken as a YES.
Couples sit opposite each other at a Roman.tic meal, and lock eyes as a prelude to coupling copulation. At the alter, they lock eyes and agree the deal. They YES with their eyes. That is the signal.
You can cast your eyes around you. What are you casting, what are you forming with your eyes ? Are you moulding something ? What are you be witching with your eye casting ?
If you are being watched by being witched with another’s eyes, your behaviour automatically changes. Which is why nothing captured on film is ever “real” or “natural”. You have been cast into a role for the watching eyes. You know if you are being watched, don’t you ? You feel it. And your behaviour subtly alters to respond to the audience.
You can read things about another person by locking eyes with them. So much can be exchanged in a momentary mutual glance. The truth cannot be hidden. The open eye is a pathway into your hidden and private information, like allowing someone access to your personal computer, or an open window into your house.
You open your eyes to see, and you open your eyes to be seen into. It is a baring of the soul, an agreement to share.
The North American Indians do not like being captured on film, because it captures their soul. And maybe that is why the American Museum in Bath has an exhibition of lots of photos of them for visitors to rudely stare at. Because the Museum represents white male supremacy, and the capturing of the Indian soul.
Cameras shoot things, guns shoot. Eyes shoot too. We all carry guns, two of them, in the form of our eyes. Shooting is an invasive and often unwanted intrusion. IN TRUE SION, Sion being the Sun that illuminates and allows our sense of daytime Vision.
Use your eyes wisely, to harm or to heal or to avert, they have more power than we have been led to believe. We live in an overly Yessing culture, and I think we live in an overly VISION orientated culture too.
