Though seeing, they do not see. Matt.13:13 Also: Matt. 6:22-23
How can you see and know the Father’s presence, while still on earth?
You must become like a small child who sees and trusts his father without question.
In this way, you will see the realm of God’s presence now, in this life, not only the life to come. This comes by reading the Word and spending time with your Father in conversation and prayer.
The eye is the lamp of the body meaning your perception is what determines your experience as a body in this life.
If your eye (perception) is clear, your whole body, all your experiences in this life, will be full of light.
Do you see light or darkness? The darkness causes spiritual blindness and is a state of depression, hate, fear and doubt.
If your sight is clear, you will see light, beauty and harmony all around you. This is the presence of The Father.
You are the light of the world. You cannot gain more light.
When you encounter some darkness, close you eyes and consider any area of trouble in your mind and say to yourself, There is more to this situation than what I see. Spend time in quiet reflection talking to your Heavenly Father. He always listens and is with you always.
