I must admit that I am fascinated with the concept of spiritual sight, where all of life’s illusions disappear and one sees in full daylight the secrets and mysteries behind its theatrical production. The idea of scales falling from the eyes, and suddenly seeing without the preconceived notions, inherited belief systems and judgments that have sharply narrowed our vision. To see with full clarity the rhythm of the world and the pure spirit standing behind every persona. By definition, scales are small, thin, horny plates that protect the skin of a fish. As a mass noun, “scale” refers to a flaky buildup, such as the hard white substance that forms on the inside of water pipes or the tartar that forms on your teeth. Scale can flake off or be scraped off. Either way, the goal is to restore the object to its original, pristine and natural state.
And immediately something like scales fell from his eyes, and he regained his sight. Acts 9:18 ESV
