The lamp of the body is the eye…

… if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.” (Matthew 6:22)

“These two eyes are discriminatory (pointing to his eyes). They tell you what is high, what is low, what is man, what is woman, what is this, what is that. These two eyes are instruments of survival.

‘If thine eye be single’—that does not mean you close one eye, like some of you do when I ask you to close your eyes (referring to meditation); I am not talking about that kind of single eye – that’s a crooked eye. [Laughter]

‘If thine eye be single’ means that you are no more discriminatory. You are seeing everything as one; you are seeing everything as the same. If you become like this, your body shall be filled with light, and that is Grace.

Grace means that the source of your existence, that which is larger than creation, is no more outside of you; it is within you. You are no more looking for an outside source of light – you have become the source of light. Once you become that, even for a moment, your life will never be the same.

We are doing so many things in Isha (Sadhguru’s meditation programs) to somehow make you experience this at least for a moment. You may not be experiencing it all the time, but if at least for a moment you see that you are filled with light, that means Grace has touched you.” ~Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev
