Demand for the Opening of the Spiritual Eye

Bless me, Father, that I behold the Eastern star of wisdom. May it shine before my human eyes as much in daylight as in darkness.

Long my eyes were blinded by the tinsel-glitter of materiality. Seeing things always outwardly, I saw not the Spirit behind and within them. I saw the mustard-seed of matter, but spied not the oil of Spirit that it contained.

My third eye of wisdom is now opened. Oh, may it always be so! Let the gaze of my single eye of realization penetrate through every veil of matter to behold the infinite presence of Christ, everywhere.

Bless me, that my sacred, wise thoughts, following this star of knowledge, lead me to the Christ in everything.

    Blessings,
    My spiritual eye had become open back in 1972, and through my own materialist illusions what was given to me by the Christ Consciousness was taken away in the blink of an eye.

    Since that time my own soul has been very heavy and cries out for the love of Christ. I have been a member of the Ananda Church of Self-Realization since 11/12/95. I now by the grace of the Lord, Jesus Christ have begun my steady climb to the One true GOD.
    I’ve always been touched by Paramhansa Yogananda’s wisdom back then and his wisdom is still in tune with today’s age and the findings of ones soul. With endless joy, George
