If you can accept it for a moment, even hypothetically, please continue. So if everyone’s vision is fine, but everyone’s eyes are really just holes in their face, what does that mean? It means that all of our brains are fine. More than fine. They are perfect.
When you notice that your mind at rest sees, and feel it for yourself, you will start to understand what I’m talking about. So if you’re mind is perfect, and it sees best when you are relaxed and happy, you were designed to be happy. It is your ground state. This is not a huge leap of logic. We know in physics that nature loves the path of least resistance. Well the path of least resistance for you is happiness and peace. Sight is really just a symptom, but I harp on it because it is the key to it all. It unravels the secrets of the universe.
Next: If you were designed to see and to be at peace and happy, there must have been a Designer. We were all given the same chance. The same hardware. It’s our choice what to do with it.
We create all of our own misery. You were perfectly programmed to be perfectly happy. Just think about your childhood. What’s happened to you in between then and now is your doing. You’re the only one that can set the clock back. You’re the only one to blame. Not the circumstances. Not the environment. Take your life back. Take back your mind. Use what was given to you and do what you were designed to do: be happy.
I’m sure you’ve seen one of your friend or coworkers struggle with a twitchy eye. I’m sure you’ve struggled with one at least once or twice before. Actually, if you’re reading this, chances are great that you have some refraction errors, some I’m guessing you’ve had more than just a little eye twitching over the years.
Here are some reasons that we say that your eyes twitch:
Wow. Those all seem like negative things. They all seem like things that we’ve either discussed before or will in the future. All of these things effect your vision and your brain. Whatever is causing your your eye twitch, stop it. It’s not good for your brain.
Consider this for a moment. When were you your happiest? Have you ever seen a kid stressed out, smoking, or with alcohol or caffeine problems? Of course not. If you’re like me, you had a happy childhood. You were pretty carefree and never had to deal with much stress, fatigue, medication and definitely not glasses. So what changed? What would you have to change to find your true self, the past you that was perfect?
If all of these items affect your vision and your brain, how deep does our cycle go. If my sleep and caffeine intake and Zoloft affect my vision, but my vision gradually gets worse, and my SSRIs lose their effect over time, what is happening? This is what they call in the medical profession as aging, but really you’re stuck in a cycle of misery. There is a way out: the entry point is the eyes.
I think it’s widely accepted that both hypoglycemia and diabetes do or can have effects on your vision. But since we’ve proven that your vision changes throughout the day, the fact these diseases may cause short or long term vision problems is important. If these diseases cause short and long term vision changes, our blood sugar levels directly tie in to the way we see and how our brains function.
So by way of hypoglycemia, we know that your vision blurs if your blood sugar gets too low. Similarly, we know that your vision can blur if your blood sugar gets or stays too high for too long.
Here is how we trap people in diabetes or hypoglycemia with glasses:
You skip breakfast [which is not normal for you], and make it to the eye doctor a little late. You grab some coffee in the waiting room, and head on back to get your eyes checked.
You just signed up for a year of misery. Maybe a lifetime. The fact that your blood sugar will be lower than normal will affect your vision readings, and will cause your eye doctor to write a script stronger than you would’ve even needed beforehand. The caffeine has a similar effect. The biggest issue, though, is the part where if you wear your glasses or contacts all the time, you will never give your eyes [brain] a chance to find equilibrium again. Your vision will seem blurry when you make improvements, because your vision would differ from your prescription. So the anxious, blurry, person that walked into the eye doctor, will be your new normal. And this will snowball throughout the rest of your life.
This trap causes mental and physical anxiety, hypertension, and all sorts of other problems we associate with getting old. It will effect your sleep. It will literally take your mind from you. Take control of your life. Take control of your mind. The eyes are the key.
Note: I am not saying that there are note true cases of diabetes and hypoglycemia outside of the scope of this post. Don’t do anything stupid.
Here’s a fun one. Think about this for a moment. You hear it all the time: heart disease is the number one killer in the country. Let’s assume that for a minute that it’s true. I have no idea one way or another. This “epidemic” causes us to go to the doctor where they begin to prescribe beta blockers, and a whole host of other meds to treat the heart, to make us live longer, and they are proven to work.
Here’s the problem: the side effects of these “miracle” drugs that prolong the human life, is that almost all of them have a side effect that includes dizziness, anxiety, or blurred vision. So If you’re a doc, and you’re treating high blood pressure, and you give a pill that lowers the blood pressure, your job is done. What you don’t realize is that you may have started a downward cycle that unravels the patient’s very existence as he knows it.
So for the “minor side effect,” the patient goes and gets glasses so he can see, or other stimulants to help battle the anxiety. Regardless, as the doctor, you prescribed medication for his heart that may be the neurological end of your patient. And the worse part of it: it is all attributed to “the general aging process.” Even if it is singled out as a side effect of the drug that you’re on. No one realizes that poor vision is a problem in and of itself. And no, glasses, contacts, and Lasik are not the solutions.
So maybe my heart only makes it to 70. I’m good with that. Please do not give me medication to prolong the life of my heart that let’s me live to 90 miserable as I lose my mind.
The only reason I think I stumbled upon all this is a because of how unwavering I am in questioning the status quo. I’ve never accepted things at face value, and found my own truth as I went along. I made it slower, and more painful, but I made my own way.
Also, I toyed with glasses growing up. I first wore them in 3rd grade, and had them on and off throughout my life. I still have just about every pair I ever wore. I remember putting them on in class, just so I could see the essentials, and not wearing them for the rest of the day. I HATED the way they looked, and didn’t feel myself in them.
My vision was never perfect, though. I still saw fuzz at a distance as long as I can remember, but it just wasn’t something I really cared about. My general thought was: my eyes aren’t perfect, but they’re not terrible. I’ll get Lasik eventually and straighten it all up.
I was actually a pretty good athlete all things considered. Without good vision or corrective lenses, I probably went as far as I could. Remember: I never played sports in glasses or contacts. I don’t know why. I just never did. Until recently.
I don’t know if anyone can do it, or if it’s the lamest superpower of all time, But I can see through other people’s glasses. I know what you’re thinking: so can I. I need to dig in and test this a little more. There is a lady at our office with -3.00 diopter vision, and I put on her glasses and could see just fine. Most people would put them on and say “Whoa, you’re blind.” It may be because of all the experimenting I’ve done, or maybe I can strain my mind at will to change my vision. Whatever the case may be, it’s the lamest gift ever. But it has lead me here, so for that I am thankful.
If you want to learn how little we know about the eyes, just ask your optometrist some of these questions. Please be careful because they do know a lot more than I do about the actual structure of the eyes, but what they don’t know is they treat problems that are not eye related.
What do you think causes refractive errors?
Do you think your practice works? If so, then why do your patients get worse over time.
Do you think that their may be a correlation between eyesight and mental strain?
Do you believe that your eyesight varies throughout the day? If not, let’s prove that.
If your eyesight varies throughout the day, why do you write a single prescription?
If your eyesight varies throughout the day, how can you correct the eyes with lasik?
Have you ever heard of any research related to the study of mental illness and how it affects vision?
Do you notice that most of your patients have other health problems other than just glasses?
Have you thought that maybe some of their other medications could be artificially or naturally changing their vision either permanently or temporarily?
Have you ever witnessed someone’s vision improve? Is that not the goal of medicine? If glasses do not solve the problem, only exacerbate it, what do we prescribe them? [Because they help you see]. Tylenol helps me feel better but it does not cure my cancer.
Have you seen any correlations in personalities to higher or lower diopter vision? For instance, did the worse prescriptions seem dramatically different than the nominal ones?
My thought for the day: everyone is fine. We create all of our problems. By misdiagnosing symptoms, we create the snowball effect of side effects, and we have the incredible technology to solve or treat whatever new symptoms pop up. But the underlying problems are not solved, and the damned are damned in the tedious, expensive, and sometimes painful cycle of medicine.
Next week, I’ll work with my sister to see what I can do for her with her vision problems. And yes, I’ll go over to her house thinking nothing about her vision and everything about her mind. That’s the only way that I think I could be of any help at all. There are 1000 people in town that know more about the anatomy of the eye than me, but when you make these kindergarten level assumptions, you start to really turn the wheel on everything. Like let’s assume for a minute that everyone’s eyes are fine. That whatever blurs in their vision are caused by their mind. With that assumption in place, what would be the next step. If you knew that this was true, what would you do next? That’s where I’m at.
Glasses do help you see. Please don’t think that I’m arguing with that fact. But what glasses do to the mind free the soul to do as I pleases. It allows deception, tires the eyes, strains the body, and prevents pure focus and learning. The mind was made to devour information, get lost in the moment, love one another. Glasses allow for a lost version of the self to function in the world.
