The eyes are the windows to success and failure. What you find there might give you pause. To turn away is to give up the fight, and give in to that which will bring you low.
Only by facing our fears, can they be faced down. Wickedness is afraid of the light and will flee from its warmth. If it loves the dark, let it languish there.
If you can be honest, then you can see. The clouds roll away when the truth is revealed. To close one's eyes, is to accept deceit.
We live in a world of lies, surrounded by liars. It takes honesty to shine a light and pierce the dark. Only then can we see as we are seen.
Things are not always as they appear. Sometimes they are better, but more often worse. Words can deceive, but how you live reflects the heart.
