Perception, Feelings and Sight.
Our eyes see a reflection of reality, not reality itself-when we feel our feelings go beyond that reflection of reality, and therefore our feelings are often truer then our sight. If you take away the light yours eyes wont work properly, when blind your feelings and other senses heighten naturally to compensate..the trick to further truth seeing is to strengthen and heighten your feelings without losing your sight.
This is where spiritual disciplines and exercises are beneficial, they help you become more perceptive and aware of your intuition and true feelings. Try watching using yours eyes with your feelings only, they go beyond any superficial reflected light images, that our eyes initially see.
