A description of the experience
Jacob Boehme – Dialogues between Disciple and Master
Oh how may I arrive at the unity of will and how come the unity of vision?
Mark now what I say. The Right Eye looketh in thee into Eternity. The Left Eye looketh back in thee into time. If now thou sufferest thyself to be always looking into nature, and the things of time, it will be impossible for thee ever to arrive at the unity, which thou wishest for. Remember this; and be upon thy watch. Give not thy mind leave to enter in, nor to fill itself with that which is without thee; neither look thou backward upon thyself … let not thy Left Eye deceive thee by making continually one representation after another and stirring up thereby an earnest longing in the self propriety; but let thy Right Eye command back this Left .. and only bringing the Eye of Time into the Eye of Eternity … and descending through the Light of God into the Light of Nature … shalt thou arrive at the Unity of Vision or uniformity of Will
