I cannot leave Him for a moment

Seeing with an actual eye is superior sight of the mind's eye. This is brought as a way to show the difference between the way something is in oneg (delight) versus how it is in sechel (mind).
Seeing without any content relates to the essence itself – this gives the world a sense of reality beyond limit.
This is representing Him above creation – atzmus – that is not content dependent at all. At the same time it is this “feature” that conceals G-dliness. If we fail to perceive that it is a flow of elokus then it becomes gashmius that conceals.
Sight of the mind's eye is always dependent on content. It is in the world of meaning. Actual sight is without embellishment.
Sechel, as great as it is, is just an observation – it is not the thing itself. Emunah / Faith is not atzmi, it relates to sechel.
