More Than A Window To The Soul...If you really look. I believe that a person's eyes can tell you just about anything you really want to know about a person, but you have to be willing to look, and receptive to what you see.
I will use my daughter's beautiful hazel eyes for example. She is going through quite a bit right now in her life, and I can read her every mood just by looking in her eyes. She is in the process of obtaining her Bachelor's Degree in Psychology right now, after graduating her Associates Degree with Honors. I think that she thinks that because she has this knowledge that she can hide certain things from me. Not so. She is in a live-in relationship with a man that is almost twice her age, but she is twice as mature as he is. I can tell that this is very frustrating for her, because she is constantly having to deal with his immaturity. One look in her eyes, and I can tell if they have been having words, or if everything is cool at the moment. There are times that I have seen such rage in her eyes, that I wonder just what she is capable of. He has a way of rubbing her last nerve to the point that she sometimes has the look of a wild animal, about to pounce on it's prey and choke the life out of it. I can also tell when they are getting along, because her eyes shine with contentment. Almost like a baby's eyes while it is nursing. When he is acting his age, and all is good, you can see a kind of joy like you would see when a person is in a happy relationship.
I see an over abundance of love and pride in her eyes, when she is with her daughter. She tends to melt into her like a chocolate chip in the middle of a cookie. The love that shines in her eyes when they are together is enough to light the darkest night. Her daughter also brings out the child in her and makes her eyes look happy, like a little girl hugging her first kitten. Her daughter makes her eyes run over with pride and it is as beautiful as pure mountain spring water rushing over a waterfall. When they are hanging out together doing girl things, her eyes radiate warmth like the summer sun.
When she is studying, her eyes are like sponges, soaking up everything in their path, searching for more and never wanting to quit. She pours so much of herself into her studying sometimes that her eyes appear exhausted, but at the same time full filled with achievement. When she was just out of high school, and had no intentions of furthering her education, her eyes always looked as if they were full of rebellion. As though she would fight to the death if you dared to challenge her into even thinking of staying in school. She has her sights set on eventually going for her Master's Degree, and when she talks about it, her eyes are full of determination, and I know she will do it, without a doubt.
I do believe that eyes say alot about a person, they just don't shout it out, unless you look into them. Eyes can communicate fear, resentment, loathing, and any other emotion that you can describe, you just have to be receptive.
