“What do you want me to do for you?” “Master, I want to see.” (Mk 10: 51)

In Sight 

“I am not blind,” you say. Of course you can’t see this kind of blindness, but perhaps, nearly all of us are interiorly blind. Maybe that is what causes some our unnecessary heartaches and hurts.

Let’s imagine our entering the dark side of our souls. Because it is dark, darkness holds the unknown. It’s scary. Have you ever thought about what it would be like to be actually be blind? People without sight are blind as a bat. Astonishingly, bats seldom bump into objects. Bats have this ability because they see by echodistance. We humans have this capability. Blind people see in the dark with this astounding gift. Sighted people see by light; the blind see by dark.

Heartaches and hurts most of us have experienced. Sometimes, we never get over these

trying times because we never make use of science of echodistance. We seem to fear the dark.

“Fear not.” says the Lord, “I am always with you.”

Soul Searching

            Let’s go soul searching to perhaps discover that maybe, just maybe, you don’t have in sight to realize the why of your hurts and heartaches. Holy Spirit, Lord of Light, shed Your light in my soul dark and unvisited.

Why, Why Me?

Why did they hurt me? Put on your glasses and begin some introspection. What could be their reasons?

Fear,

Home background,

Pride,

Low self-esteem,

Caused by medicine,

They have mental problems,

They are bullies,

They are #1 and in charge,

 

Lord, only You know their motives. Only you truly know the answer to the question why.

 

Notice you seemed to blame the person who hurt you! Now, take the same dark path of soul searching, but this time focus on yourself. Let the Lord, who is always with you, be a light house to guide you home and to take away your inner blindness.

 

For Reflection and Sharing:

  1. What might you have done to have brought on this hurtful situation?
  2. How does the other person feel?
  3. What might you do differently?
  4. What in sights did you discover?
  5. Are you able at this point to give a truthful motive for the hurtful situation?
  6. Is God calling you to a deeper understanding of yourself and others?
  7. If Jesus asked you, “What do you want me to do for you?” What would be your answer?
