The Spiritual Eye & Link to Chant “O Ring of Gold”
Chant (By Dr. MW Lewis)
O ring of gold, within of nameless hue
O door of heaven, by which we all pass through,
Into that realm, God’s kingdom bright, Eternal bliss, immortal Light. The Spiritual Eye & Link to Chant “O Ring of Gold” When the Kriya Yogi withdraws his mind and life force and gathers them together to be concentrated at one point, in the single eye, he begins to look into the omnipresent sphere of the Infinite. This is what is meant by making the mind one-pointed, the “single-eyed” vision referred to by Christ. When the yogi meditates more deeply, he finds his mind automatically concentrated at the one point of the spiritual eye, in ecstasy with the Lord. The single eye of light reflected in the forehead from the medulla is the astral eye of intuitive omnipresent perception. When the light of the two eyes is concentrated between the eyebrows as a single reinforced light, the yogi can see his body as made of the light that emanates from God.
The soul uses the spherical astral eye of intuition to perceive Cosmic Light and Cosmic Consciousness. In deep meditation, when one’s eyes and gaze are fixed in between the eyebrows, the life energy pouring from behind the wall of illusive man-made darkness through the sluice gates of the two eyes floods the center of will in the forehead as a mass of brilliant energy – a bubbling lake of white light. This light may change into colors or shapes of infinite variety. The different rates of thought vibrations of the meditating devotee produce the variations.
The common first fruit of concentration is white light; expressions of devotion, love, wisdom, all produce different variations. But when the devotee is established in the intensive, desireless, calm intuitive state of meditation, then all variations of the light in the spiritual eye begin to change into the one true spiritual eye. -Paramahansa Yogananda, God Talks With Arjuna p 607; Chant, O Ring of Gold by Dr Lewis.
*Here is a link to “O Ring of Gold”, an inspiring chant composed by Dr Lewis who was an early disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda. It is a visualization of what the yogi perceives and feels as he concentrates on the spiritual eye in meditation. Let me know if you would like the musical notation. May we all experience the great Light and Bliss of the soul through passage into the spiritual eye. OmSpiritBliss, Annie
