Windows to the Soul

Windows to the Soul
That’s what your eyes have been called
May I look deeply?

I want to see you
Know you at your heart’s level
Open your windows

Seek and you will find
But what are you looking for?
Look into my soul!

Every week I have the privilege
of doing a Bible Study
with a few of my favorite
residents at the Madison Valley Manor,
our local nursing home.

We spoke about the importance of
EYES,
SEEING,
FOCUS,
UNDERSTANDING.

The lesson from In Touch,
daily reading for devoted living,
was based on Gen. 25:19-34.
The title was “Spiritual Shortsightedness.

The lesson demonstrated how focus on the temporal
rather than the eternal can cause us to make decisions
based on today’s desires or needs without considering
tomorrow’s consequences. Notice the focus here:

This is the account of the family line of Abraham’s son, Isaac, his wife Rebekah, and their twin boys, Esau and Jacob. Isaac was sixty years old when Rebekah gave birth to them. The boys grew up, and Esau became a skillful hunter, a man of the open country, while Jacob was content to stay at home among the tents. Once when Jacob was cooking some stew, Esau came in from the open country, famished. He said to Jacob, “Quick, let me have some of that red stew! I’m famished!” Jacob replied, “First sell me your birthright.” “Look, I am about to die,” Esau said. “What good is the birthright to me?” But Jacob said, “Swear to me first.” So he swore an oath to him, selling his birthright to Jacob.

The consequence of Esau’s shortsightedness was disastrous for him.
If what we choose to focus on is temporal and selfish,
our lives can be turned upside-down, too.
What are you looking at?
What are you looking for?

My friends at the nursing home and I interspersed music with our Bible reading and sharing. I played my accordion. They sang along. Do you know this one?

“Open my eyes, Lord,
I want to see Jesus,
To reach out and touch Him
And say that I love Him.
Open my ears Lord,
And teach me to listen.
Open my eyes, Lord,
I want to see Jesus.”

When I look deeply
Into your open windows
Will I see pureness?

When looking at me
Seeing into my soul’s depths
Do you see the Lord?

He lives inside me
He helps me practice restraint
Who lives in your soul?

Open your eyes, Friend
Let me see into your heart
I know I’ll find love!

See ya tomorrow (God willing)
Thanks for visiting JanBeek
I send you love from my soul’s depth.

Look in my eyes – Hah!

Intimate Relationships


Intimate Relationships

Haiku x3

Need intimacy
More than need food or water
No touch means no life

z -intimate relationship-thoughts

Thought relationships
Are important for your health
Nothing beats a hug
.

Make peace in your head
Express that peace in actions
Live intimately

Children express intimacy freely. Their heartfelt hugs are genuine. They are unabashedly affectionate and loving. At what point in our lives do we lose that? Can we get it back? Should we?

The premise of my blog is that the world would be a better place if we could just love one another. Real love. Agape love. I care more about you than I do myself kind of love. I’m in this to GIVE and not to count the cost or worry about what I can get.

So run your finger
Over the heart of my soul
Find the crack and pour
HUGS
SMILES
LAUGHTER
LOVE

Let’s Practice Seeing Souls


Practice Seeing Souls

beating-heart

Pat Cegan, in her blog, Source of Inspiration,
posted the following this morning:

The soul is not human;
it is Divine
connecting with
the entire matrix
of our Creator.

The soul has no lessons
to learn; it is perfect
love energy incapable
of errors.

That which you call me
is this soul temporarily
experiencing life on Earth
as an imperfect human being.

All souls are part of Source,
and, like a hologram, are complete
Source in every way, perfect in
their entirety.

Thank you, Pat for that glimpse of me
that is, that was, and that always will be.

That part of me that is perfect love,
incapable of error.

Oh, if I could just tap into
that part of me daily,
and see that part in every other person.

How much better life would be!

I see you…
I see your soul…

Do you see mine?

I love you, dear friend.
