We live in a world where modern man is seen as nothing more than a glorified animal whose purpose is to maximize his sensory & sensual pleasures. It’s a world where we’re constantly bombarded with images of sexuality, and lowering the gaze has become uncool.
Is “seeing” nothing more than processing of photon particles? Is beauty only in the external world of form? The external world is just a tiny reflection of real beauty. Real beauty lies is in recognition of the formless.
To recognize real beauty, one should be careful of what they see as the eye is a window to the soul. What we see changes who we are, and who we are reflects what we choose to see.
“There is nothing more gainful than lowering one’s gaze,
for the sight is not lowered from things, which Allah has forbidden unless the witnessing of majesty and glory has already come to the heart.” ~ Imam Jafar Al-Sadiq (as).
