Distance yourself, briefly, from the axis of sense. Then take pride and turn away from sense-perception. So become seeker of the light of God revealed to Moses on Mt. Sinai.
Senses as veils, obscure what your conscience says. Guardians of the veil they are, and secrets hidden from you they keep. This is the secret of your ignorance.
God’s seal on man’s soul is the senses. Anyone enslaved by senses is one devoid of value in both worlds. Should “Gold” turn black, then “copper” it is.
Senses are of equal rank to surfaces and effects, but bound within their own limitations, nothing more. So secrets they cannot unveil.
Each of the senses have distinct requirements, which govern varying data they each control, with differing manifestations.
Sound is the ear’s limit, not the eye. The ear, is “deaf” to all senses not its own. It functions within limits permitted.
The nerves of our auditory system, Only detect echoes and sounds. This is their function set.
The eye is on the level of colors and light. The eye is “blind” in perceiving sounds, They are beyound its domain.
Likewise, each sense’s apprehension, is based upon this law and principle. Analogies may be drawn.
To each sense an innate function all its own. An axis away from which it cannot go. Herein lies no alternative.
Thus, all things perceived are shaped by your own senses’ reach, measures of senses are constant not! Thus unstable are all judgments rendered by senses.
My life, my soul
My heart, my faith
My breath, my pulse
My sight, my ears
My legs, my arms
My fears, my strength
My tears, my laughter
