Can the eye see itself?

I read this quote recently by Janet Jiryu Abels that said, “You can’t face yourself or turn away from yourself because you’re it. What do you need to understand? Can the eye see itself?” So today, I just need to sit with that because I am it. I guess it is as I wrote about the other day; I have to be at peace with what I do understand and what I don’t. As don Miguel Ruiz say, “it is what it is.” We are not to make any more or less of it then it is. I am who I am. I am exactly who I am supposed to be at this very moment in time. I am it. While there are many things I would like to understand, there really isn’t anything I need to understand. When I need to understand it, it will be revealed to me and I will understand it. However, for now there is nothing I need to know. I think that is what the second part of this quote is about. I could not even understand it if I could understand it because the eye cannot see itself. Even if there is a mirror being held up in front of me, it is not the eye, it is a reflection of the eye. It is my interpretation of the reflection of the eye, but it is not the eye.

So today, I release all need to know. I am also going to work on releasing the want to know and remember that when it is time for me to understand, when the Ultimate knows I need to understand, I will. Until then, it is what it is, nothing more, and nothing less.
