The Third Eye
It is not a physical thing.
The third eye is pure consciousness.
The highest plain of perception.
The clarity of emptiness.
Turning the third eye inward
is turning consciousness inward.
Turning the third eye outward
is turning consciousness outward.
First, we gain an intellectual realisation,
and then drop that,
revealing ecstasy for no reason.
The great relief.
But still there is karma to deal with.
Karma: the results of previous ignorance.
We deal with karma through awakening consciousness.
We have two eyes to see outwardly.
We have a ‘third eye’ to see inwardly.
We can believe what we want,
or we can see with our inner eye of pure consciousness.
Pure consciousness is not a physical thing.
The pineal gland is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain which produces melatonin, modulating sleep patterns.
The shape of the gland resembles a pine cone, hence its name. The pineal gland represents a kind of atrophied photoreceptor, linked to a light-sensing organ known as the parietal eye, which is also called the pineal eye or third eye.
Some believe the pineal gland to be the “principal seat of the soul” and it continues to have an exalted status in the realm of pseudoscience.
The pineal gland can calcify and disturb our wake-sleep cycle for which there are remedies.
