Near the center of the brain at the top of the spinal cord, tucked in a groove between the two hemispheres, is a tiny gland, known today as the pineal gland. According to Science the pineal gland is the body’s internal clock and according to our ancient teachers, it is for our spiritual development.
First the science. The pineal gland regulates the body’s circadian rhythms and produces and secretes the hormone melatonin. Circadian rhythms are the daily rhythms of the body, including signals that make someone feel tired, sleep, wake up, and feel alert; around the same time each day. The circadian rhythms also plays a crucial role in many other biological processes, such as hormone secretion, cardiovascular health, glucose homeostasis, and body temperature regulation. Energy balance is one of the most important cornerstones of metabolic processes, whereas energy imbalance is associated with many diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease, to name a few. Out of balance could mean sleeping too much or too little, feeling active and restless in the middle of the night, or feeling sleepy at unusual times.
One problem, published by US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, is pineal gland calcification. Science suggests the calcifications plays a role in the development of Alzheimer disease. Fluoridated water is believed to be one of the chief causes of calcification. Evidence also suggests that children reach puberty earlier now as a consequence of fluoridated water. We are told fluoridated water was to prevent tooth decay, but does it really?
With all its research, science still does not fully understand the pineal gland, but seems to agree it is indispensable to a process most of us take for granted. More research is needed to understand additional pineal gland functions and determine how light and melatonin affect everyday health.
Along those same lines is another interesting discovery related to the neurons in our brain. They have the ability to produce photons of light, known as “biophotons”. They are capable of communicating through light. According to the biophoton theory developed on the base of these discoveries, biophoton light is emitted from in the cells of the organism, more precisely, in the DNA molecules of their nuclei. Light is constantly released and absorbed by the DNA and connects all cells, tissues, and organs within the body. This serves as our main communication network and as the principal regulating instance for all life processes. The consciousness-like coherence properties of the biophoton fields are closely related and indicate its possible role as an interface to the non-physical realms of mind, psyche and consciousness.
This discovery reminds me what Jesus said in The Gospel of Thomas,
If they say to you, “Where have you come from?”
say to them, “We have come from the light,
from the place where the light came into being by itself,
established itself, and appeared in their image.”
If they say to you, “Is it you?”
say, “We are its children and the chosen of the living father.”
The pineal gland is known as the third eye, the sixth chakra or energy center, the color indigo. Ancient traditions knew of the pineal or third eye and all its mysteries. They knew of the pineal role in our spiritual development and communication with spiritual beings. Within Taoist self cultivation, the third eye, known as Ancestral Cavity, is located between and behind the eyes and serves as the cavity of profound and ancient knowledged and can be accessed through meditation and contemplation.
In Buddhism, the third eye refers to Eye of Consciousness, seeing the world beyond physical eyes. In Hinduism the third eye is the eye of spiritual wisdom and knowledge..
The third eye is mentioned in Matthew 6:22 when Jesus said, “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.”
In the Law of One, the third eye, the indigo-ray or 6th chakra is our gateway to connect with Infinite Intelligence. In order to connect, we have to unblock our energy centers, by dealing with the negative and positive emotions that has shaped our lives and freeing the pathways for the flow of energy.
Each Chakra is a energy center and blockage varies from person to person. The seventh chakra or violet ray is unimpaired and is used as a energy receptor. The sixth Chakra or indigo ray, our pineal gland, can be blocked by feeling or belief in unworthiness. The fifth Chakra, known as the blue-ray, is our understandings of ourselves and our communication with others. The fourth Chakra, the heart chaka, known as the green-ray, is our understanding of universal love or compassion. The third Chakra, or yellow-ray is what we call the ego. The second Chakra, or orange-ray is the emotional or personal energy center. The 1st chakra, or red-ray is basic and fundamental, but is where the Kundalini lies asleep waiting to be awakened. In Hinduism, the Kundalini, the coil serpent is the divine power in an individual, and waiting to awaken this power to affect enlightenment.
The serpent is referenced in John 3: 13-15 , when Jesus said, “Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up. For everyone believes may have eternal life”.
Moses rod represents the spine. Spiritual awakening is a process. It is about energy. As the energy begins to flow freely through the energy centers, it begins to gradually unblock and balancing begins. You may experience unexplained phenomena and emotions as you meditate and contemplate your true-self.
Our pineal gland is already active. We all have some degree of intuition or discernment, a sense of knowing that will expand the more we unblock our energy centers and more energy begins to flow. The the pineal gland will grow stronger and may even awaken the Kundalini.
The light in the body is the single eye, our pineal gland, in the middle of the forehead seen in deep meditation, our gateway and connection to Infinite intelligence. We can perceive through our pineal gland, our spiritual eye, the love and light of the One Infinite Creator. By fixing the vision of the two eyes at the point between the eyebrows in the interiorized concentration of meditation, one can focus the positive negative optical energy of the right and left eyes and unite the currents in the sign eye of the divine light. The more we practice, the more the body and mind inwardly illumined with astral light and wisdom, receives indescribable joy and unending guidance of divine wisdom.
