Exodus _14:15 And the LORD said unto Moses, why are you calling out to me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward: 14:16 But lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea._
When we read with old ‘eyes’, we continually read what we like to read and not what we should be reading. Come everyday with ‘new pair of eyes’; renew your mind! Review the text again ‘…why are you CALLING OUT to me’ (that’s exactly how the original reads). The next thing he says is ‘tell them to move, you use your rod and divide the sea’
See, the father is inside you stop calling out (he is not there) because to call out, we must stop moving. Keep moving and things will change cos things will respond to him; cos he is inside you
The Yoruba word for Imagination, is Oju Inu. Directly translating it into words and meaning, it means ‘Inner Eyes’. Subjectively looking at the word in yoruba, it doesn’t just mean ‘Inner Eyes’, it also means ‘eyes that see beyond the surface, because they are present beneath the surface’ (as though the same ‘Inner Eyes’ are in two places; in the observer and in the observed) The same applies for Efik and a host of other indigenous languages. When observed, it seems the ancient understood that ‘to imagine, is to see with deeper eyes, into depths beyond the surface’. Every great inventor first imagined the invention, before it was ever created even the famous E=MC2 wasn’t the product of too much mental disturbance; Einstein says ‘it just came, almost in a dream’
Open your eyes…you can shut the outer one if you like. But once the inner is opened, nothing is hid from you sight.
