Eyes: The windows to the soul

Aug 24, 2020 | 0 comments


You may have heard this phrase several times. Your English teacher may have taught you in his class or you might have read it in books. I think you know what that means too. But basically, you are going to read some more interesting things about it like its origin, explanation, and most importantly the connection between eyes and the soul. So let’s start reading and learning. I believe your important time will not be wasted here.


“(22) The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, [a] your whole body will be full of light. (23) But if your eyes are unhealthy, [b] your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness! (Bible: Matthew 6)

In the Bible, it is clearly written in the twenty-sixth verse of the sixth chapter that eyes provide a doorway to our souls. It means that if the eyes see well, they also leave a better impression on the body and show positive effects in all directions. They lead the body towards truth and positivity. In this way, the body stays healthy.


In the same way, if the eyes are not healthy, and they do not see good things, they will also have a negative effect on the body. Our heart and mind will be vacant inside and there will be no peace. Despair will be seen and felt everywhere. In short, bad eyes lead to bad impacts whereas good eyes make a person’s life illuminated and high lightened.

The link between eyes and personality:

It is true that we can determine someone’s personality by looking in their eyes! Researchers of New South Wales published a study in Current Psychology that :

> Those with lighter-colored (blue and green) eyes tended to be less agreeable and more competitive than their brown-eyed peers.Blue and green eyes were also linked to being egocentric and skeptical of others while those with brown eyes were seen as more altruistic, sympathetic and willing to help others. Blue eyes may seem cooler while brown eyes perhaps seem warmer. That can then be manifested by stereotypes about competition, agreeableness, etc.

> Brown eyes are more common, so it could be that there is a sense of ‘belonging’ or fitting in with those who have dark eyes.”Brown eyes may also be more likely to come from cultures where a trait like agreeableness is more culturally  valued than in blue-eyed cultures. In the USA, 34% of respondents have this eye color in common.” 

Brown-eyed people:

People who have brown and hazel eyes possess strong eye contact skills. They are self-confident and determined. They are trustworthy and offer a sense of security. They are crazy and have a loving nature.

Blue-eyed people:

They have a tendency to be egocentric, competitive, and skeptical. They are suspicious of new things. They are more timid and inquisitive. They are curious, cautious, and determined to succeed.

They are introverted and known to be very secretive. They feel uncomfortable with new people. They are passionate, loyal, and powerful.

Green-eyed people:

2% of the world’s population has green eyes. It is definitely rare. Such people with green eyes are unique and tend to look extremely attractive. They are hardworking and sincere. They have a desire to fulfill excellence in their goal. They have a charismatic personality.

The link between eyes and soul:


The soul is a driver and spiritual part of a human being which is regarded as immortal. And eyes are the organs of the visual system. According to William Shakespeare:

 ‘’Eyes are the windows to the soul’’

This means that we can know about one’s soul only by reading the eyes deeply and can evaluate his temperament and personality because through the eyes man’s feelings and thoughts are clearly reflected. Our eyes show the truth, no matter what face we put on, in any situation. The best way to get to know someone is to look them in their eyes and notice what they disclose about their mental state.
