I had cataract surgery on my left eye last week. A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s natural lens which lies behind the iris and the pupil and causes blurred vision. An unexpected and amazing benefit of surgery was my ability to “see” color in all its natural and vibrant glory. WOW! Even the color of pavement, gravel and dirt were incredibly beautiful!! I’m excited to have the surgery on my right eye soon. I can only imagine the intensity of color I will see.
I wonder if clouded vision is similar to clouded thinking. Weeks ago, I wrote about the wisdom of having a mind that is open to everything and attached to nothing. Mental attachments are cataracts of the mind. They can distort, blur and obstruct clear, unimpeded thinking. A mind that is open to everything is like an unlimited spectrum of color. A spaciousness that holds all things as possible. If you think it, you can do it. And like vivid color, that’s beautiful!
