‘if your eye is healthy…’
August 6th 2012
Jesus said, ‘If your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light’. But what Jesus refers to as an ‘eye’ is a spiritual organ, different from our physical eyes. We work at purifying this eye by nurturing disinterested thoughts, feelings and wishes, truly believing that this eye also protects us, since it is watching us. In daily life, those who are conscientious, responsible and honest do not need to be watched; they even behave and act better for feeling free. But on the spiritual plane, where everything is much more difficult, only human beings who have reached a very high degree of development no longer need to be watched. In the meantime, their inner eye watches them as a safeguard. One of the symbols for this inner eye is a triangle with the eye of God at its centre. And they must not only accept being watched, they must also seek it.
