Seeing With New Eyes

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”  Marcel Proust

It occurs to me that this “having new eyes” is akin to Paul’s statement in Romans 12:2: “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”  It is when we filter observations through the mind/heart/soul that we go beyond seeing.

It seems to be a fairly low risk approach.  I mean, much of what I see with my “current eyes” is pretty disturbing and concerning.  What can I see today through “new eyes,” with a renewed mind?
