‘if your eye is healthy…’


August 12th 2011
Just as we possess sense organs, enabling us to make contact with the physical world, so too we possess subtle organs and centres, enabling us to make contact with the spiritual world. These centres, which have different names depending on the tradition, are like antennae connecting us to heavenly entities. When Jesus said, ‘If your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light’, he was referring to one of these centres. From the point of view of physiology, it is absurd to say that the state of the body depends on the state of the eyes, and anyway Jesus was speaking not of our eyes but of one eye. This eye, upon which the whole body depends, is the centre through which heaven touches the earth within us. And this eye not only sees but can also understand, feel and even act, for it contains all the other organs’ possibilities in potential.
