Higher Self: Third Eye

Wedjet eye, Egypt

The third eye is the window of the soul, through which Divine Presence looks out.


Going Forth by Day (Egyptian text): The Eye of Horus makes me holy.
Al-Ghazal (11th c. Persian Sufi mystic): The third eye opened for the prophet to reveal the hidden things which escape the intellect.
Bhagavad-Gita (Hindu text): Let the seeker focus his eyes between the two eyebrows; let him not gaze in various directions.
The Secret of the Golden Flower (Taoist text): The Book of the Yellow Castle says: In the square inch field of the square foot house, life can be regulated . The square foot house is the face. As for the field of a square inch on the face, what can it be other than the heavenly heart? In the middle of the square inch dwells the God of Utmost Emptiness and Life.
Rumi (13th c. Sufi mystic and poet): Close both eyes to see with the other eye.
