The lamp of the body is the (spiritual) eye;
if therefore thine eye be single (whole, mature),
thy whole body will be light
- Jesus, according to Matthew
That's so good, let's read a different perspective on what Jesus has to say on the subject:
No man, when he hath lighted a lamp, putteth it in a cellar, neither under the bushel,
but on the stand, that they which enter in may see the light.
The lamp of thy body is thine eye:
when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light;
but when it is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.
Look therefore whether the light that is in thee be not darkness.
If therefore thy whole body be full of light, having no part dark, it shall be wholly full of light,
as when the lamp with its bright shining doth give thee light.
- Jesus, according to Luke
but this practice is central to Meditation with Jesus:
you can bring this way of BEING into fruition, if you choose to.
You can be more and more a lamp for God's Light:
comfortably, easily SHINING within yourself, and in your world!
