In Your Eyes


In Your Eyes - the Resolution of all the Fruitless Searches
 
In some Eastern spiritual paths there is a 
technique of looking into the eyes of the 
Master when he (or she) is giving “darshan” 
to a crowd. I think of darshan, this mutual 
gazing between teacher and students, 
when listening to this song by 
Peter Gabriel, “In Your Eyes”.

love I get so lost, sometimes
days pass and this emptiness fills my heart
when I want to run away
I drive off in my car
but whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are
 
all my instincts, they return
and the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside
 
in your eyes
the light the heat
in your eyes
I am complete
in your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution of all the fruitless searches
in your eyes
I see the light and the heat
in your eyes
oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light
the heat I see in your eyes
 
love, I don’t like to see so much pain
so much wasted and this moment keeps slipping away
I get so tired of working so hard for our survival
I look to the time with you to keep me awake and alive
 
and all my instincts, they return
and the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside
 
in your eyes
the light the heat
in your eyes
I am complete
in your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution of all the fruitless searches
in your eyes
I see the light and the heat
in your eyes
oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light,
the heat I see in your eyes
in your eyes in your eyes
in your eyes in your eyes
in your eyes in your eyes


Initiation is the divine birth, meaning birth to a spiritual life


If one is whole, one will be filled with Light, but if one is divided, one will be filled with darkness. (Yeshua, Gospel of Thomas)

The first Initiation is the divine birth, meaning birth to a spiritual life. (Illumination, Dionysius the Areopagite)




"When we see darkness with our eyes closed, we are in the realm of death and re-birth [we are unaware of our True Nature]. When we come out of the realm of darkness and enter into the realm of Light, we will at the same time transcend the web of death. It is not possible that we can remain in darkness and be free from the net of birth and death. Having achieved inner Light we can be liberated from the cycle of birth and death." (Swami Sant Sevi Ji Maharaj)

There are living spiritual Masters who are competent, qualified teachers (as well as representatives of those Masters), and they can initiate people into this form of meditation practice. If this is a possibility you're interested in exploring, email me at:
