Baba then explained about the third eye:
When the eyes are turned inward in full consciousness, then this eye (pointing to the center of his forehead) opens, and then only the internal is seen. This is insight. Union is then sought. Now you long for union, but without seeing the One with whom you want to be united. When the eyes turn inward and this eye opens, you see the One you long for, and long still more ardently for union. Turning the eyes inward cannot be done mechanically. It is impossible to do so by exercise. However, it is done in less than a second by the Master. You see the Self. Everything turns different!
