Answer: You actually don’t see anything. It is the mind that sees, and in the spiritual world it is quite clear.
Question: So why do I need the two openings in the form of eyes and all the reflected light that I receive?
Answer: All our body is merely a kind of glued together “papier-mâché.” We actually don’t feel anything in our hands, our tongue, our nose, our ears, or our eyes but only in our brain and even deeper than that, in our desire.
A person’s body is the scenery, the continuous external display of our internal attributes. It is made especially so that you will see that there is someone before you. Still, everything that you see and feel is only inside you, in your brain, or rather in your desires. Since we work at the level of the material world, it seems that everything depends on external sensors or detectors called senses.
