Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts – Albert Einstein
Plato’s entire philosophy was premised on the fact that the ‘world of forms’ or ultimate reality underpinned and lay beyond our apparent reality. Aristotle. Plato’s student was responsible for separating physics from metaphysics. Contemporary science has inherited this Aristotelian dichotomy. Yet the philosophical traditions of the East for fifty thousand years have incorporated the existence of a third eye, as a doorway to these higher realms of consciousness. Physiologically located at the inception of the forehead between the out eyes. Known in the Vedas as the Ajna Chakra.
The human evolutionary process has led our species into a global village. Scientific discovery is conquering time and space between human communities. And inevitably, the collaboration of mankind’s combined empirical understanding is reintegrating metaphysics into physics.
Meditating on the third eye is said to stimulate the pituitary gland to both secrete more hormones and regulate the endocrine system. Further still, concentrating on this point reawakens the pineal gland which esotericists maintain is the means by which we acquire past life memories and so-called supernatural powers.
