The Eye of God


It was a gloriously beautiful and unseasonably warm morning today at the river.

One lone kyaker gently erased the cloud's reflections and a Jack Russell was overjoyed at her free reign of the park.

I thought of some pictures taken by the Hubble Telescope and how one in particular reminded me of the "Eye of God."

In his works, especially - The Autobiography of a Yogi and The Second Coming of Christ - Yogananda writes of seeing the Spiritual Eye in meditation - where we ultimately encounter and commune with the Divine.

He often quoted verse 22 from the sixth Chapter of Matthew:

"The eye is the lamp of the body.
So, if your eye is healthy,

your whole body
will be full of light..."

We have often heard it said that the eyes are the window to the soul...

One glance can speak volumes...

One look can disclose what lies in the cave of the heart....
