dr. Jacob Israel Liberman discovered that you can see better if you look less focused. He also discovered that light contains intelligence that guides you. When you follow your eyes for a week and take responsibility for what catches your eye, something special happens at the end of the week: everything feels right. In this article, pioneer Liberman explains how you can do this special experiment yourself!
Life guides us
For a week I took responsibility for everything that entered my consciousness, took care of everything I saw as my responsibility, and finished everything I started. The impact of this experiment was so great that it became the cornerstone of my life because it showed me how life, if we follow its lead, takes us from one moment to the next, creating a meaningful existence.
But how can we learn to respond automatically to what catches our eye? First of all, we must realize that our eye is touched by light, the same light referred to in the Bible as God and which physicists consider to be the basis of everything. This light creates, guides, and nourishes the development of all life forms. It helps a seed grow into a fruit-bearing tree that nourishes the world and produces seeds that grow into new trees.
Responding to What Calls Us
When we recognize the truth of this, then we respond to everything that calls us. We don’t need to prioritize, because the intelligence of life has already done that for us. Everything in life becomes equally important – doing the dishes is just as important as washing your child’s back and you do both with the same attitude. When a bill comes in, you pay it. When the phone rings, pick up.
When you have inspiration, you do something creative. When you feel love, you express it. When you encounter a problem, you welcome it and you solve it. Embrace life and it will lead you to optimal health and wellbeing, not only for you but also for those around you. Your life is, as Gandhi once put it, ‘your message, and your message is infectious’. Respond to that which catches your eye,
We often talk about being “in the moment” or being “spiritual,” but being spiritual is not about becoming or being something, but rather taking care of what’s in front of you and recognizing that your life is your meditation. When we are clear, we become ordinary – we concern ourselves with whatever comes our way. When we do that, we develop the assurance that we will take on anything we encounter.
If I left the things of the moment in the past, they would come back and I would feel overwhelmed by them. But I found that life never brings us anything at the wrong time. Everything in nature works so beautifully and simply.
Start the experiment
Everything that catches your eye is looking for you, so take on and complete any task.
For the next twenty-four hours, respond to whatever comes into your consciousness. Everything that catches your eye is looking for you, so take on and complete any task. If you find that your bed needs to be made, make it. If there are dirty things on the counter, even if they don’t belong to you, you wash them, you dry them and you put them away.
If you owe someone money or someone sends you a bill that you can’t pay, call that person in good time (not at the last minute), let them know about the situation and make sure you take care of them as soon as possible for the payment. Show your love and appreciation when you feel it; say ‘thank you’ and ‘I love you’ to the people around you. Clean up your house as soon as you notice that there is clutter somewhere.
If something needs to be repaired, take care of it; don’t put it off. Answer your emails and your phone calls within a reasonable amount of time. If someone needs help, give that person help. Wipe the toilet seat, dry the area around the sink, take out the trash and express your gratitude if someone helped you with something, or cooked for you, for example. It actually comes down to not pretending you don’t see anything, but acknowledging everything you see.
Acknowledge and accept what you see
When we open our eyes to everything that touches us, we practice the highest form of vision.
By acknowledging and accepting what we all see, we initiate a process that continually expands our consciousness. Paying attention to what enters your consciousness is the most important exercise in self-development. True insight comes from the everyday experience of being present in our personal relationships, in the way we do our jobs and in taking our responsibilities. When we open our eyes to everything that touches us, we practice the highest form of vision.
