PASSAGE: "The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light; but if your eye is unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If, then, the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!" (Matthew 6:22-23)
COMMENT: The eye—singular—is the lamp of the body. What Jesus calls the "eye" is the source of light, of energy. It is the power in which we place our faith. When we rely on the evidence of our senses—our double eyes of mortal sight—we are drawing from an energy of duality. We are believing sensory evidence that insists we are separate from each other and from God. When our eye is single, we are relying on the unified light of the Christ Presence within us. We recognize One Presence, One Power. We see clearly, because we see only God in expression wherever we look.
