Jesus said : “He who has ears to hear, …”
He is echoing what is written in Isaiah, 32, 3 : “Then the eyes of those who see will no longer be closed, and the ears of those who hear will listen.”
There is no place where someone is deprived of ears to hear eyes to see.
But there are places where these organs are coated with a layer of dusty skin.
Left as they are, these are unusable.
They all have eyes to see, but do not see,
They all have ears to hear, but do not hear.
Through those words, the Nature of Man is.
The deepest Heart of Man can always see or hear the word of Isaiah,
The presence of Christ invites us to peel of the blackout skins and see.
In the previous line, Isaiah mentions the abounding Divine Nature :
32, 2 : “Each one will be like a shelter from the wind
and a refuge from the storm”.
Suffering, for the one who sees, ends.
The dryness of the soul is no more,
The violence, and the fear of those who goes through existence without seeing and hearing,
without letting their inner sky clear up, are no more.
Hatched out, they become in their own turn a source of life, a refuge, a rock to shelter their brothers.
Without this opening, Man is doomed to dwell in the realms of fear, ignorance and violence,
where he suffers from the “need for”, an dries out from this thirst, to wither under the heaviness of the sun.
