Seeing with Inner Vision

It is easy to believe in only the three dimensions that are more noticeable to the physical eye, but to the spiritual eye, so much more is visible and tangible. Religion may have left as bad a taste in your mouth as it did in mine, but religion is the man-made codification of that which is intangible. Religion was created by those who could not see as an attempt to explain and try to control the ideas of those who could see, the spiritual masters of old:  Jesus, Buddha, Kwan Yin, and so many others.  We can live and die without ever seeing beyond the tip of our own noses, or we can allow ourselves to awaken to the other dimensions that are just beyond our noses. 

People of other times would have thought that things like Facebook and the unseen internet were magic. Today we call them science and take them for granted. Yesterday's magic is today's science, just as today's magic is tomorrow's science. The word science means knowledge. Do we really believe that we have figured out and successfully explained all the knowledge/science in the world, even in the midst of this ever-changing technological world? Amazing things happen when we open our minds and hearts to all the wonders and magic in the universe. It is all at our fingertips, waiting to be discovered by those brave enough to open their inner eyes. When Jesus said, "Let him who has eyes to see, let them see, and ears to hear, let them hear," what kind of ears and eyes was he referring to in those teachings? Presumably all the people present had physical eyes and ears. He was appealing to those who were able to see past their noses into the multi-dimensional universe. There really is magic in the universe and it is available to all, even though not all seek it. If we open the doors of our minds and hearts, we allow the universe to open our eyes to what is there but unseen. We can ridicule those who believe in other dimensional worlds and beings, or we can allow our inner vision to open to the knowledge beyond our day-to-day understanding of how we think the world should be.
