The eyes are the Window’s to the soul…
This is biblical.
Eyes are the mirrors of the soul..
- I chose these images for the challenge to show you that I do passionately believe that the eyes do tell a great deal. The study of Iridology has shown me this also. There is a reason and it’s because if we look we can see into the windows of our bodies. This amazes me and I have studied this in-depth over the years. I have an iris torch, it has no batteries at the present though.
EYES ARE THE WINDOWS OF THE SOUL: I find its origin in the bible 58 to 68 A.D. Matthew 6:22-23
King James Version (KJV) 22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. 23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
EYES ARE THE MIRROR OF THE SOUL “A person’s thoughts can be ascertained by looking in his or her eyes. The proverb has been traced back in English to ‘Regiment of Life’ . But the proverb was known much earlier. Cicero (106-43 B.C.) is quoted as saying, ‘Ut imago est animi voltus sic indices oculi’ (The face is a picture of the mind as the eyes are its interpreter). The L*tin proverbs, ‘Vultus est index animi‘ or ‘Oculus animi index,’ are usually translated as ‘The face is the index of the mind.’ The French say, ‘Les yeux sont le miroir de l’dme (The eyes are the mirror of the soul).
