What do I see when I look at life?
When one develops spiritually, vision becomes affected in a strange way. It’s sort of like turning forty and suddenly needing glasses to read the fine print. No longer does anything look the same. Gradually, you learn to see in a different way and life is increasingly illuminated with God’s presence, even the most repugnant of situations. Some of the eastern religions call this the “third eye” experience, a seeing of the invisible realm of the spirit. In the Christian tradition, we call this “mystical insight.” It comes as a gift from God to those who are receptive. While we have plenty of testimony from the saints, anyone who experiences the felt presence of God is a mystic. Wouldn’t it be something is we realized that fact and behaved accordingly? We might just transform the world.
