“Bless me, Father, that I behold the Eastern Star of wisdom.
“Long my eyes were blinded by the tinsel-glitter of materiality. Seeing things always outwardly, I saw not the Spirit behind and within them.
“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.”
—Paramahansa Yogananda, Whispers from Eternity
