We don’t have to have eyes to see inside one another. But in order to see another, we must first be able to look inside ourselves and understand who we are. Vision comes not from the eyes, but from within the heart. To be able to look at ourselves without judgment, allows us to reach out without judgment to another. We don’t have to see kindness to feel and know kindness. We don’t have to see love to feel and know love. The heart knows what the eyes cannot see.
We often look at an animal and say that their eyes look to their soul. But Piper teaches us how to feel to the soul rather than to rely on the eyes.
Piper was born without eyes and is amazingly adept at chasing toys, playing with his cat friends, and zooming up and down cat trees at great speed. There is nothing he cannot see himself doing!
