Losing Eyes, Ears…

What Sees?

Thou seest those eyes looking, but they are like pictures in a bath-house: they do not see.
The form appears, O worshipper of form, as though its two dead eyes were looking.  Rumi

Just tell me what your eyes are.  Genro

It is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.  Jesus

Jesus said to them: When you make the two one… then you will go into the Kingdom.  Gospel of Thomas

He became one-eyed.  Attar

The Tathagata became the Eye of the universe.  Parinirvana Sutra

Thou art not that body: thou art this spiritual Eye.  Rumi

I become a transparent eyeball; I am nothing: I see all.  Emerson

Real vision is eyeless.  Anandamayi Ma

Become seeing, seeing, seeing!  Rumi

Become vision itself.  Plotinus

When Chang Ching, after twenty years of meditation, happened to lift the curtain and see the outside world, he lost all his previous understanding of Zen, and cried: "How mistaken I was! How mistaken I was! Raise the screen and see the world."

Anything, however small, adhering to the soul, prevents your seeing me.
We cannot see the visible except with the invisible.  Eckhart
