”There is no difference in principle between sharpening perception with an external instrument, such as a microscope, and sharpening it with an internal instrument, such as one of these…drugs. If they are an affront to the dignity of the mind, the microscope is an affront to the dignity of the eye and the telephone to the dignity of the ear. Strictly speaking, these drugs do not impart wisdom at all, any more than the microscope alone gives knowledge. They provide the raw materials of wisdom, and are useful to the extent that the individual can integrate what they reveal into the whole pattern of his behavior and the whole system of his knowledge.” Alan Watts in The Joyus Cosmology
The third eye, also known as the inner eye is a mystical and mysterious concept referring partly to the ajna chakara in some Eastern and Western spiritual traditions. It is also known as the gate that leads to inner realms and spaces of higher conciousness. In newer forms of spirituality the third eye may symbolize a state of enlightenment and is often associated with visions and clairvoyance. People who have said to be able to utilize their third eyes are commenly known as seers
In Buddhism and Hinduism the third eye represents enlightenment, being in nirvana. In Indian cultures this is refered to as the gyananakashu, the eye of knowledge. The third eye is the anja chakra also known as the brow chakra. This is marked with a dot, eye or mark on the forhead od deities or enlightened beings such as Shiva or Buddha. This symbol is called the third eye or eye of wisdom, or the urna in Buddhism. In Hindu belefs it is said that the opening of Shiva’s third eye causes the the eventual destruction of the physical universe.
Writers and researchers such as HP Blavatsky and Rick Strassman, have said that the third eye is party dormant, and sits between the 2 hemispheres of the brain. The pineal gland secretes dimethyltryptamine also known as DMT, which induces dreams, meditation, hallucinations and near death experiences. Many different lower vertebrates such as amphibians and reptiles can actully sense light through a third parietal eye, which is associated with the pineal gland. This gland is used to regulate their daily rhythms, sensing the polarization of light and also for navigation.
It is said that when the pineal gland is has awakened, you are able to see beyond space time into time space. It raises the frequency on which one operates and moves one into a higher consciousness. All forms of out-of-body travel coincide with the third eye.
When the pineal gland has been turned on, one will have the ability to communicate with the spiritual world. The crown chakra is said to move in a vortex down towards the pineal gland. When the vortex touches the pineal gland, what is received is pure energy. This energy is known as Prana. The more the astral body is trained one will be able to completely seperetate from the physical body. Both the positive and negative forces join and creates a ”light in the head” thus the pineal gland is activated. You should start to feel a withdrawal from all senses as well as a withdrawal from ones physical self, people visualize their physical body escaping through a door in the brain, they carry this light into any realm they decide to go. also flashes of memory and knowledge of the astral plane will begin start to unfold. Universal knowledge will be aquired the stronger the third eye becomes. After time worldly needs and the ego begin to dissapear. This is called the ‘theta’ state which is when you are still conscious yet resting while feeling at peace with ourselves and the world. As the brain enters deeper states of consciousness, we begin to become less concerned with the physical world.
Humans have been evolving from physical matter ever sience the dawn of man and are still evolving further and further. We went from spirit to matter, and now have said to be moving back into spirit. After time the third eye will eventually bring to humans spiritual abilities and astral capacities.
It is possible that this will take place in the next few years when the fifth sun age ends in 2012? Will the coming Age of Aquarius will bring be truth and brotherhood to the world? December 21st, 2012 AD is when the Earth’s equatorial plane aligns exactly with the galactic center. The Ages are a purely planetary phenomenon based on the planet’s wobble. As a result, around every 2160 years, the constellation visible on the early morning of the spring equinox changes
