Seeing beyond

Luke 10:23-24
Then turning to the disciples, Jesus said to them privately, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see! For I tell you that many prophets and kings desired to see what you see, but did not see it, and to hear what you hear, but did not hear it.”

Looking for the sights that matter
Listening for truths that are important
Amidst all that wounds and disturbs
Seeing through the glare
Hearing in the cacophony
that quiet voice 
that brings focus
in all the distraction
And, in the midst of chaos
discerning the gift
hidden from voyeurs,
the treasure revealed to pilgrims
who leave what they know
to venture beyond the threshold
and are rewarded
with wisdom
not of this world.
Blessed are those eyes
Blessed are those ears.
Blessed are they.
