Your Eye Will Expand to Contain the Entire Universe

Your Eye Will Expand to Contain the Entire Universe

Sant Mat Quote of the Day:

"Speak to your mind as follows. 'O mind! Control yourself and be steady. Do not speak angrily even with those who incite you to anger. Do not give up friendship with the Friend you have accepted, i.e., maintain your love with God. Do not desert your duty.' Perform various duties with your hands and keep your mind with the Abode of Grace (Ram, God)." (The Book of Kahara, a section of the Bijak of Kabir)

"Faith, worth the name, must be living. It must consist in acquiring an affection, or rather an intense love, for the Supreme Being and an intense desire to approach Him; and this latter we can do in the interior of the body, for the highway is within us." (Huzur Maharaj, "Holy Epistles")

"The true Supreme Being is within everyone, and the Path leading to Him is also within all. By means of His rays or currents, He pervades all. Jiva or Surat [the soul, spirit] is a particle of the Supreme Being like a ray and the sun, or a drop and the ocean." (Huzur Maharaj, Prem Patra Radhasoami, Volume III)

Kabir: "In each house (heart) the Light shines. But we are blind [ignorant of that divine Light of knowledge] so we do not see it. If we keep looking we will find the Light and will destroy the shackles of death."

"We have only one consciousness stream. When we associate with truth, we ascend upwards and when we associate with untruth we fall down." (Acharya Tulsi, a Jainst teacher quoted in, "The Harmony of All Religions")

"The Center of 'seeing' or inner focus is known as Ajna Chakra (the third eye). When the mind is focused on it, the divine Light pervades every part of one's being." (Acharya Tulsi, a Jainst teacher quoted in, "The Harmony of All Religions")

"Whoever is unified will be full of Light; whoever is divided is full of darkness." (Yeshua, Gospel of Thomas) "If therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of Light." (Yeshua, Gospel of Matthew)

"Moving down from the middle of the two eyes is going towards ignorance, and moving up from the middle of two eyes is going towards Knowledge." (Bhagirath Baba)

"The beginning of the Turiyaa state has been said to be the Aajnaa-chakra [Third Eye Center] (the Guru instructs about the Point in between the two eyes where the vision of both unites), and the destination of this is in Kaivalya--the State of Oneness." (Bhagirath Baba)

"Meditation is the process of withdrawing the attention from the world outside, and focusing it at the seat of the soul in the body, behind and between the eyebrows. This point is known as the inner eye, third eye, the single eye, shiv netra, tisra til, or the divya chakshu. In order to withdraw our attention and focus it on this point, mind must be controlled and stilled." (Kirpal Singh)

"O traveller! Seek the path that lies within you. You and your Beloved are in the same body. Your Beloved is pervading everywhere, but not being perceived. Those initiated by Guru are able to recognize Him within their bodies. O traveller! If you wish to go alone on the path of the Lord, look for the path within and do not delay. The four spheres of darkness, Light, Sound and Soundlessness [Anadi, Anami] -- they all lie within the temple of your body." - Padavali of Maharshi Mehi

"On finding the central point within, at the Third Eye Center, pursue the path ahead. Opening the portal of the sphere of Light with the yoga of vision, immediately enter the very sphere of Light." - Maharshi Mehi

"One who crosses this layer of darkness through a special kind of meditation sees the inner Light within oneself. This inner Light is called Aatma-Aalok (Light of the Self) or Brahma-Prakash (Divine Light). On achieving this, the Third Eye opens completely. While gazing into the darkness that one sees with eyes closed, one should mentally repeat the guru-instructed mantra [simran]." (Swami Bhagirath Baba)

Look at God within yourself, how "God is Light." For his Nature is a glorious, many-splendored Light. He manifests the Light of his Nature to those who love Him in all the worlds. - John of Dalyatha (Syriac Mystic)

"O Nama, the Lord will make the pupil of your eye His home, and your eye will expand to contain the entire universe." (Sant Namdev)

"The Master has revealed to me the secret, dear friend.

Of a region where exist neither Void, nor breath, nor the Vedas;

Neither the five elements, nor mind, nor body are there;

Nor karmas, nor suffering;

There is no birth in that region, nor is there any death;

There, exist no bondage, no fetters, no chains.

The soul has penetrated into the peak, O friend,

And pierced, like a shaft, a hole in the sky.

Therein she beheld sights wondrous, beyond comprehension."

-- Param Sant Tulsi Sahib of Hathras
