Seeing through the Beloved’s Eyes

Borrow the Beloved’s eyes. Look through them and you’ll see the Beloved’s face everywhere. No tiredness, no jaded boredom…things you have hated will become helpers.

    Dear Sr. Pat –

    This is a beautiful image of the mountains, river and grass and yes, and yes “seen through the eyes of the beloved.”

    I think you would appreciate erm, charles brandt… He came to Vancouver Issland in 196. Here is a contemplative piece of his writing and photography that I put together

    Thanks for your life of contemplation and action.

      Thank you for your comment, Bruce. Yes, I enjoyed the piece by Brandt. And now I need to find a little time to discover Through the Illusionary Lens. I can see that we (to quote one of my Dominican brothers who compared the spiritualities of Meister Eckhart and Thich Nhat Hanh) “walk the path together.” Peace, Pat ☺️
