Some caves have fish that possess no eyes. They’re completely blind. Scientists are certain that these fish once did have eyes and could see, but after being isolated in a cave and no longer using their eyes, their visual organs slowly—over generations—disappeared from disuse.
Similarly, we were all born with emotional and spiritual eyes, but most of us were raised in emotional and spiritual darkness—without the unconditional loving and teaching essential to our growth—so we lost the use of our ability to sense the light. I have counseled with a great many of these blind people, and I have learned that even when they encounter genuine, unconditional love, they simply do not have the eyes to see or feel it. Long years of not using their eyes has led to their losing them entirely.
Fortunately, we can learn to see the light again. We can regain our eyes. This requires people to guide us toward the light. It requires faith and persistence, but we can learn to see and feel love again. Whatever efforts we make in that direction are well worth it.
