The Eyes of God

Excuse me, we asked the blind man.  You are otherwise young, in the prime of health, and it appears that you once could see.  How is it that you are blind?

Ah, he said, with a weary expression.  Indeed I am.  But in fact, I once had the eyes of god.

How is that?

I was once given the eyes of god, through fervent wish and endless prayer.

But the eyes of god are surely not blind?

No, they are not, of course.  The eyes of god are all-seeing, omnipotent.  That is what you think are the eyes of god, yes?

Yes.

What you do not realize is that because the eyes of god are all-seeing and omnipotent, they are constantly in tears.  It is why I had to gouge them out.  I could not bear to see the world through the eyes of god.
