It must be Children’s Book week because after watching the news,
another great quote from “The Little Prince” comes to mind:
“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
We are so often blinded by labels…..human-created labels. Our hearts do have eyes and they are able to see far more than the eyes on our faces can. Our heart’s eyes do not see race or religion. Our heart’s eyes are blind to differences that exist between us. They only see what unites us…..one body.
They see shared suffering, compassion….love. It’s time to begin to see with these eyes, the eyes that are not able to see differences.
Helen Keller, deaf and blind perhaps saw better than any of us, “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.”
