Heart That Eyes

Jesus uses the images of treasure, heart, and eyes in one go. How are they connected? Well, Jesus clearly states that where our treasure is, there will our heart be. But how do we know where our heart is? Follow the eyes! The eyes are intimately connected to the heart: Don’t we say that the eyes are the windows to our soul? A mother cannot take her eyes off her baby, because her baby is the treasure that her heart cherishes. A mystic cannot takes eyes off God because God is what her heart treasures. Wherever the mystic turns her eyes to, God is what she sees. If you find your heart wandering after things that are less worthy of who you are, gently force your eyes to what truly matters: the heart will follow suit.
