    I'm blind, cried the sightless man.
    all alone in the dark
    He heard of a master who could heal the sick, cure the lame and maybe, just maybe help the blind to see
    good story, but first a little song:


    Our hapless fellow crawls on his hands and knees to the crowd gathered around the master. Slowly working his way toward the master's voice, he pleads I'M BLIND.
    The master places a hand gently upon the blind mans head and bekons him "stand". When standing, the master asks the blind man if he truely wants to see with all his heart. The blind man says "yes, oh yes, i have longed to see for all my life.
    The master bends and whispers in the blind mans ear: "Please open your eyes."

    As the blind man opens his eyes, the light feels like daggers penetrating his brain, and he closes his eyes again.
    Coaxed by the master's kind voice, he tries opening his eyes again, and the pain has lessened.
    Shortly the once blind man turns around seeing the gathered masses and proclaims in a loud voice "I CAN SEE"

    It is often that the blind can see the clearest into others hearts.

    I don't get it. So the guy wasn't blind? He just had his eyes closed? Sounds like the guy really did just need enlightenment (in the form of being told to see you must open his eyes). Why do I have a feeling I missed a joke somewhere along the way here?
    Speaking badly about people after they are gone and jumping on the bash the band wagon must do very well for a low self-esteem.

    not a joke so much
    both the song and story are much more parables

    and, yes, you do "get it"

    thanx

    To see into one's heart though, to me has been through the eyes. They say so much if you pay attention. Facial expressions give something away, but the eyes complete the though and the emotion.

    They say the eyes are the window to one's soul/heart......I believe that is true.

    As I struggle with my eye issues, I do find that other senses kick in a little more....I wonder if they fix them if those senses will withdraw.
