On this 4th Sunday of Lent, we read how Jesus heals the man who had been born blind. So this week we will reflect on sight.
The eye through which I see God is the same eye through which God sees me; my eye and God’s eye are one eye, one seeing, one knowing, one love.
― Meister Eckhart, Sermons of Meister Eckhart
Some people want to see God with their eyes as they see a cow, and to love [God] as they love their cow – for the milk and cheese and profit it brings them. This is how it is with people who love God for the sake of outward wealth or inward comfort. They do not rightly love God, when they love [God] for their own advantage. Indeed, I tell you the truth, any object you have in your mind. however good, will be a barrier between you and the inmost Truth.
– Meister Eckhart
