The one thing...

Voici mon secret. Il est très simple: on ne voit bien qu'avec le cœur. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux. - Antoine de Saint Exupéry

I've been thinking a lot lately about my "one thing." The thing that matters the most to me. Antoine de Saint Exupery gave me language for it: One sees well only with the heart. The essential is invisible to the eyes.

It takes training to be able to "see."  (Well, at least for adults.  I believe children have a greater capacity for seeing with their hearts.) 

For most of us, seeing that which is invisible takes practice. 

But it is also possible.
