The View from your eyes
Sight, the most powerful tool in our Sensual toolbox. From the moment of wakening to the time you close your eyes at night, your eyes are acting like a video camera. While you use your sight to navigate and experience each day, everything you are seeing is sent to your brain for processing, interpreting and storage.
Seeing is a form of sensory reasoning. The complexity of this can take up to 30% of your brain power as compared to 8% for touch and 3 percent for hearing. So when it comes to the 5 senses, sight is the big boy. And this means when it comes to a sensual experience this is your visual chance to really shine.
The Minds Eye
And here’s another thing to ponder. Have you ever thought about how personal and individual is your view of things?
Imagine you are standing with 100 other people looking at the same thing at the same time. Your eyes are “seeing” things but referencing it according to the stored information from your mind. What you are seeing is unique to you.
And finally that which creative minded people engage in daily – the perspective of seeing from the “mind’s eye” (our ability to experience visual mental imagery – happening without our eyes actually seeing something).
Our brain is a busy little bee when it comes to our “mind’s eye” view of perception and how it trips over from reality into another more creative place inside our head. Scientists and philosophers have written volumes on this subject. The first to prove the thing, the second to understand it. I’m guessing at some point they’ll meet up! lol
What we need to know is the following: Sight allows for those with vision to see what is in front of their eyes. Our view is filled with a full spectrum of color that exist in all things during a shining sun, the shadows of day, the darkness of night, an entire universe of color. All these things waiting for us to witness with our eyes.
The Sensual perspective of anything being seen can become a masterpiece unfolding before us. Are you feeling what your seeing in the landscape of your life? What is the view from your eyes?
I’ve seen the wonders of the Universe
Unfolding in a vast arena of spectacular color,
I’ve viewed the turbulent tossing multicolored Nebulas
bursting into clouds of effervescent
billowing and foamy gases,
I’ve watched Stars being born and die
I’ve seen the far reaches of the Universe
blazing glorious and blinding
A sensual explosion of shades of color,
Unlimited and Passionately
All this have I seen and felt
my “mind’s eye”
I hope you enjoyed the view!
6 more days until the The Bloggers Challenge ends. I’m hoping that all who enjoy writing will take up the Challenge.
