—M N Raju

We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.

How do our five senses, Sight, Hearing, Touch, Taste and Smell help us in our day to day life? Among these five senses which is the most important? “Sight” (Eyes) is the most important sense. However the other four senses are also important, but sight has got its own importance. Through sight we get almost 90% of information knowledge, wisdom, awareness, both good and bad, ugly and beautiful.

Eye is not only an important sensory organ, but also the most complicated. In our earlier article we had studied about the eye in brief and some more wonders about your eyes are given below, of course, in brief.

The doctors can find the indication of some physical diseases while examining the patients eyes. By examining the concave interior of the eye, the doctor can know about the blood circulation system. By examining anterior and veins, the risk of heart attack can be estimated. The shape and size of the pupils of the eye can even tell about blood pressure. Jaundice (all varieties) can be estimated by studying the eyes.

You might have come across a statement saying ‘Face is the Index of the Mind’ of a person. It means that we can understand a person’s character / feelings / happiness/ unhappiness / joy / ego / mind / flow of thought etc., by seeing the face. In the face, the pair of eyes are not only for “sight”, but for many other purposes. They add words which are not spoken. They express your feelings in their own language. It means, the eyes express most of your character and body language. They are the main social life projectors to put your image on others mind when you wish to impress others by expressions through your eyes, When others are friendly to you, you feel happy and you are blessed with “bliss”.

Bliss can be found blissfully.
Bliss begets bliss.
Bliss can be your own.
Bliss cannot be given.
Bliss cannot be taught.
Bliss is simple and by simple life.
Bliss is the bridge between you and He (God).
Bliss is God and He is in you.
Bliss makes you know He is close.

Hence your eyes make all the magic and make you a successful person. Keep your eyes healthy and make them speak your unspoken feelings.

However, at the same time you should be careful not to over act with your eyes. They may cause irritation in others and they may become negative.
