The eyes are often called the windows to the soul, and in many ways, they are also the lamps that illuminate our lives. The wisdom behind the scripture Jesus taught in Luke “Your eyes are the lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light; when your eye is bad, your whole body is filled with darkness,” goes far beyond the physical realm of seeing with the naked eye.
In this Life coaching episode, we’ll delve into the profound meaning of this statement, eyes windows to the soul, and explore how the health and perspective of your eyes can shape the brightness of your life.

The Eyes are the Light of Perception:
- **Positive Outlook and gratitude:** When your eyes perceive the world with optimism and gratitude, your entire perspective on life brightens. Seeing the glass as half full instead of half empty has to do with the, light of your eyes. A, good eye, sees opportunities, solutions, and the beauty that surrounds you.
- **Healthy Vision:** Taking care of your physical eyes is crucial. Regular eye check-ups and proper eye care not only ensure clear vision but also contribute to your overall well-being.
- **Mind-Body Connection:** The connection between your eyes and your body’s well-being is deeper than you might think. Your mental and emotional state can significantly impact your physical health. How many of you know that when you are depressed it means you are looking at the world through bad eyes.
- **The Power of Focus:** A, good eye, doesn’t just see; it focuses. When you have a clear vision of your goals and dreams, your energy and efforts align, filling your life with purpose and direction.
Bad eyes: The Darkness of Negativity:
- **Limiting Beliefs:** Negative thoughts and self-doubt can cloud your perception, leading to a pessimistic outlook. This darkness can hinder your progress and happiness.
- **Physical Consequences:** Stress and negative emotions can manifest physically, affecting your health. Chronic stress, for example, can lead to various health issues.
- **Impact on Relationships:** How you view others can also be influenced by the state of your eyes. A negative perspective can strain relationships and hinder personal growth. My pastor is famous for saying that we complain about our husbands yet so many women are praying for one. Ladies appreciate your husbands don’t let a, bad eye, ruin your relationship.
- **Missed Opportunities:** A, bad eye, might overlook potential opportunities and solutions, leaving you in the shadows of missed chances.
