Quotes from Antoine de Saint-Exupery: Only with the heart can one see clearly; what is vital is invisible to the eye.
The soul is not seen without a body, nor a body without a soul.
The only thing that cannot be seen is light itself because it is energy. It is impossible to see it but we know it's there because of its effects.
What is essential is invisible to the eye? This means that you should never trust what you see because what is important isn't visible.
People often don't realize how much they rely on their senses until they start thinking about what would happen if they weren't available. For example, if I didn't have sight, I wouldn't be able to see colors or shapes. But I could still feel objects with my skin and taste food. Would I still enjoy eating if I couldn't see it? Probably not! Hearing would be the first sense to go because there are no sounds in blindness. Without hearing, I wouldn't know where anyone was or what they were doing. I would be completely alone in this world.
Sight is just one of our five main senses. The other four are touch, smell, taste, and sound.
What is Essential is Invisible to the Eye: Leo Buscaglia's Moving Speech And now for my secret, a very basic secret: one can only see clearly with the heart; what is vital is invisible to the sight. "The heart sees things that the mind cannot understand," Leo said. "The soul perceives truths that logic cannot grasp."
In other words, what matters most is not what goes on outside our skin but what happens inside it. We need to look beyond the physical to see the real person.
So, in conclusion, what is essential and invisible to the eye is love - love itself, love between people, love between nations. Only through love can we find peace and harmony as a society and as a world.
And now for my secret, a simple secret: Only the heart can perceive correctly; what is necessary is invisible to the sight. The eye cannot see real beauty, only the mind sees that. The physical eye is quite incapable of discerning real elegance. It is the soul that sees such things.
"Invisibility opens doors and gives opportunities where none previously existed." We have a huge advantage when we are unseen in stepping in, doing what we want or need to accomplish, and disrupting the very dynamic of existing, seemingly closed, patterns. Invisibility is a great power to have and it's one many people would love to possess.
Invisible people can move through social situations with less fear and more confidence; they aren't limited by other people's perceptions or expectations of them. An invisible person can take risks, try new things, and expand their world far beyond what most people think is possible. In addition, being invisible means that nothing needs to be done for you; you don't need anyone's permission nor do you have to wait for an opening in the crowd to make your mark on history. Finally, being invisible is its own reward," says Peggy Reeves Sandler.
What if someone wanted to make you invisible? There are two ways to do this: either by magic or science. Science has come up with something called tetrachloroethylene (TCE) which will hide you from view even with infrared cameras. TCE was used as a soil fumigant before it was discovered that it was harmful to humans and animals. Now because of this discovery, it no longer is used in that role.
It's also about having an active and fascinating life! Individuals who lack eyesight have significantly less energy and zest for life. We need direction as humans to feel fulfilled. People perish when there is no vision. You cannot see the road ahead of you.
But there are two ways to find direction in life: you can look to others for approval or you can follow your heart. The first thing to know about vision is that it doesn't matter what other people think. They can love you or hate you, but they can never help you find direction unless you give them reason to. The second way to find direction is by listening to your heart. It knows what you want before you even realize it yourself. Trust your instincts and listen to your heart.
The more you open yourself up to new experiences, the more opportunities you will have to find direction. Change things up by taking on different roles at work or in your community. Or simply spend some time with yourself by reading a good book or going for walks around town. No matter what you do, just make sure it gives you feelings of excitement and fulfillment.
Finally, remember that vision can be changed. There were times during my life when I had no vision because of circumstances out of my control. But that hasn't stopped me from achieving great things. With enough drive and motivation, anything is possible.
