eyes are not windows

eyeEyes are not windows.

They are more like video cameras, recording all they take in, seemlessly, one with all.
Then, and it often seems like immediately, the mind labels and divides. Me here, the tree there. Me here, the street light there.

But notice! There is a gap–infinitesimal as it might seem–between seeing and labeling Rest there. That is what you are.
