There is a term computer programmers use – WYSIWYG (pronounced “wiz-ee-wig”). It stands for What You SEE is What You GET. So, would what you see be different if and when you look at the person, situation, or experience through the eyes of Love?
It seems as if when someone is in love, they see things differently. There’s an old song entitled, Looking Through the Eyes of Love. In the lyrics it says, “And now, I do believe, that even in a storm we will find some light.” Why? Because when you look through the eyes of LOVE, you tend to see the good … you’re able to find the silver lining in even the darkest cloud.
Being in love changes the way you see things. When a couple first falls in love, they tend to overlook – they do not see – whatever shortcomings their loved one may have. They are looking through the eyes of love. After the bloom has fallen off the rose so to speak, the little quirks that were once so endearing seem to often turn into annoyances. Perhaps couples would be happier if they continued to wear the rose-colored glasses they wore when they first fell in love.
Some would say that looking at life through the eyes of love is “unrealistic” – that life is tough and things don’t always go the way you want them to. I would say that for those who see life as “tough” …. it is. It’s not that challenges don’t arise. Of course they do! But in my experience, it’s not what happens, it’s how you handle what happens that matters the most. You tend to find what you’re looking for. When you look through the eyes of love you find the light even in a storm … you continue to see the lovable qualities that first attracted you to your mate … you find the faith and strength you need to make it through even the most challenging of times.
“Beauty is simply reality … seen through the eyes of love.” What you see IS what you get. If you want your reality to be filled with more beauty, hope, passion … whatever it is you wish to experience more of … you will find it when you look through the eyes of love.
