The form appears, O worshipper of form, as though its two dead eyes were looking. Rumi
Just tell me what your eyes are. Genro

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

Real vision is eyeless. Anandamayi Ma
Become seeing, seeing, seeing! Rumi
Become vision itself. Plotinus
