face of Christ

What is seen with Christ's vision, with true perception. The final perception, in which you "see" the Christ. Since the Christ is the true Self in all things, seeing the Christ means seeing Christ in all things. This is an inner experiencing of the innocence and holiness in all things, rather than a seeing of the face of Jesus or any other kind of visual image. Seeing His face means that, since you are still in the realm of perception, you are still looking upon the Christ in all things slightly from the outside, and thus seeing a facade, a surface, a symbol. However, soon after seeing His face you will transcend all perception and, in direct, unmediated awareness, will again know His being. See veil. See W-pII.6.4-5, C-3.
