Zohar for All, VaYetze, Item 15: “This is the breaking of the wind, as it is written, “Vanity and striving after wind.” However, the work of the Creator raises the light above the sun, extending the light from below upwards, from the sun and above, not from the sun and below.”
Instead of receiving, you aim for bestowal.
The fact is that if you want to draw the light for yourself and it enters you, then it is not the good light, it is the direct light. However, if you aim for bestowal, then the reflected light appears in you, which allows you to see everything around you. By emitting light from yourself, by becoming similar to it, you become like a source, a projector, and in this light you see everything.
Question: I have heard that there is light coming from the eyes. Is it possible?
Answer: If someone is looking at you, of course, you feel it. But it is not the light of the eyes. Basically, it is a thought. This is how our thoughts connect.
There is nothing special about the eye. It is a simple, primitive device. What is there? Everything happens inside: desires, thoughts, and intentions expressed through our external organs are strongly felt by us.
