What Would Happen If We See With God’s Eyes?
Once I heard a woman describing how she was standing in a checkout line at a store, next to a woman who had been disfigured by fire. She turned to put her items on the counter and when she looked at the woman again and she was perfect. All of the lady’s burn scars were gone. This woman had the gift of seeing the perfection that existed within the burn victim. This made me wonder, how wonderful would it be to see everyone as God sees them? Not to see the scars, the extra weight, the wrinkles, or the fashions disasters that might cause me to judge. What would it be like to only see the perfect light of God that lives within each of us when I looked at someone?
I began to intend for this to happen and I asked myself more questions. How fun would it be to see everyone as God sees them? How would my interactions change if this happened? How much bliss would I feel? Would others be able to sense that I saw God in them? What would our world be like if we all saw everyone as God sees them?
I assumed that I would see everything like I was Shallow Hal. In this movie, Shallow Hal saw everyone for the true beauty with in them. Some who were really pretty appeared ugly and lots of nice, but unattractive girls appeared gorgeous. I figured I would see everyone as gorgeous movie stars, because I believe we all have God’s light in us somewhere, even if we try to cover it up. Heavy people would be thin. Everyone would have smooth, peaches and cream skin. All of people’s flaws would be gone in my eyes and I would see them as the beautiful beings that God sees them as.
One day, I was feeling quite blissed out from meditation and I went to Walmart to do some shopping. It happened! I saw everyone in this store as the radiant creations that God must see them as. Here’s the twist: they were’t any different. They all looked the same. They still had crooked noses, missing teeth, polyester pants, etc, but guess what? They looked beautiful! Glorious! Just as they were. So in order for me to see people with God’s eyes, the way they appeared didn’t change to my idea of beautiful, I just saw them as beautiful they way they were. I had the best shopping experience of my life. People were nice, I found everything easily, the lines moved quickly and my check out clerk was a doll.Yes, I was in Walmart.
I don’t always have this experience, but I know how to create it now and it’s my intention to make it a habit. In fact, that’s my main New Year’s Resolution for 2013; to see myself and others as God sees us as much as I can.
I hope you get a chance to see yourself as God does, because I can say for certain that you are more beautiful than you could ever imagine.
Love and Miracles,
