"Having eyes, see ye not?"

In Proverbs we read, "The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the Lord hath made even both of them." Sight, then, is a faculty of Mind. It is a spiritual quality, not to be found in matter; nor is it under the control of so-called mortal mind.

On page 586 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, is found the following definition of "eyes": "Spiritual discernment,—not material but mental." Webster's dictionary defines "spiritual" as follows: "Of, or consisting of, spirit; incorporeal." And "discernment" as, "Quickness and accuracy in discriminating." Spiritual discernment, then, is quickness or accuracy in understanding the things of Spirit.
