Why did I call my new book, Through God’s Eyes? Here’s why.
ABOUT THE TITLE
The title Through God’s Eyes reflects a pivotal moment of personal enlightenment. At a 1998 weekend workshop, Dr. Ibrahim Jaffe, founder of the University of Spiritual Healing & Sufism, shared a life-changing story with his students. He said that after watching a TV nature program in which a lion savagely ripped apart a gazelle, he had been distraught. Retreating into meditation, he implored God, How could you allow such carnage and tragedy to exist? He told us that the response he received humbled him and restored his faith in Divine Intelligence: “I felt and saw through inner revelation how this incident was experienced from a higher level as pure love and that it was beautiful beyond description.”
Ibrahim explained that this world may appear cruel and harsh to our unenlightened eyes, but even the brutality inherent in the animal kingdom has meaning, purpose, and a stark beauty all its own. Indeed, looking through God’s eyes, we see that simply by living our lives, we all serve each other in ways both simple and profound. From that day on, I challenged myself to see the world through God’s eyes—to the extent that I could, of course—so that I too could witness every moment unfolding with beauty, love, and perfection.
Granted, that is much easier said than done, especially on days when I am the gazelle. That’s why every chapter contains reminders urging you to look through God’s eyes. I’ve found that the more I train myself to view the world in this way, the more peaceful and grounded I become. It then becomes easier to follow the core teaching of the ancient wisdom presented in these pages:
With love and devotion, align your will with Divine Will
and be a source of love, hope, and healing energy to
all who cross your path.
It is my greatest hope that learning to see the world through God’s eyes inspires you to break free from the prison of human perception, welcome peace, love, and joy as your dearest friends, and become a more positive and powerful force for good in the world.
