The third eye is used to locate the Inner Guru. When the inner Guru is found he joins you and sits between your eyebrows (approx just above) and when he is there the third eye is permanently open. The inner Guru is a tiny man, a real one in appearance. He will come forward of the place he sits, in and out of that place, you are fully conscious when all this happens and you can clearly see his body movements and everything. You will see him pop in and out, move forward of you, increase in size, decrease in size. He is in the Lotus position. As your mind becomes even more crystal clear he becomes bigger and bigger…your perceptions are perfect, your health is perfect, any illness will dissapear, your intuition is powerful you are in a perfect state of exquisite peace. Simplistic, exquisite peace. He will guide you.
Devotion to maintain the perfect state is required. As he grows in size so will the temptations and your weaknesses will be put to the test and should you fail to sustain a crystal clear presence about you, you will suffer the consequences. Life will become hard for you. Devotion to practice [B]must[/B] be sustained continuously when he is present.
The third eye sights must be simply noted and ignored, (except for the inner Guru) looking past the scenes as you are presented with them. Each scene that you pass successfully will lead you closer and closer to enlightenment.
The next day, lets say, you will have a greater sense of the path to self realization. This is one of the advantages of using the third eye to attain enlightenment. It acts as a visual guide and thereby offers progress you can see happening before you. It also offers you a Guru. Each scene is accounted for. Nothing you see will be new, it is written about. A Master in it will understand all that you see and inform you of your progress.
If you look at the story of Buddha. You will read about Mara…the demon of desire who tempts Buddha…you will read about the dancing girls that appear to tempt him, one two or three…you will read about fantastic war scenes he is presented with, previous lives that he sees . Each time he sees these scenes he attempts to dismiss them unswayed mentally by not paying them any attention. These scenes are the third eye scenes of all that is in you, about you, of you. It was this practice that he attained enlightenment by. This was his method. One of His main weakness was sexual desire and so some of the very last temptation scenes were of dancing girls that he needed to dismiss. Another weakness was inner unconscious aggression hence the war scenes and lastly his desire in thinking he was an individual when really he was part of the fabric of everything, not separate but a part of all around him always, the earth, the universe etc…when these things were conquered, he attained enlightenment.
The Astral path when encountered should be ignored in order to move on to the next scenes deeper and deeper and deeper. You are not meant to participate in using your mind to have fun in these areas or to try to visit people on this earthly plane using the third eye. It is a serious practice not a frivolous one to have fun with. The goal is enlightenment not to boast and impress people or even tothink you are something for achieving these things, hold a steady thought pattern of nothing as much as you can.
It isn’t magical what I have talked about but it is fantastic. If ever there were a tool to use to give you ultimate confirmation of all that is aimed for, this is the one. This is not Psychic phenomena. This is a very serious practice that is real and if understood, leads to enlightenment.
Dark visions (as it was put by Gordon) may/will be encountered but again your thoughts must remain steady and then they will disperse. There isn’t anything to fear if you understand what you are doing. If you don’t then you shouldn’t be practicing the above until you have educated yourself properly or by finding a Master of this or even better by finding the inner Guru inside you yourself because then he will do all the guidance by communicating with your intuition.
I have understood that many people attempt to practice without understanding its great purpose. Or, they don’t actually open the eye and so consequently see nothing but interference, like the interference on a TV screen…speckles, flashing lights, black n white specs…nothing…so they give up and scoff at it from then on as nonsense or over simplify it as a hocus pocus tool that serves little purpose. This couldn’t be further from the truth. I cant emphasis this enough!!!
If you don’t see anything, you are not doing it correctly to open the eye…ok
The inherent wisdom is boundless when the Guru joins you
