I was learning about different sages, saints, and mystics of various religions and many of them have talked about a third eye (seat of the soul) through which they experience God or enlightenment.
This third eye of course is the pineal gland; the pinecone, an important symbol in many faiths. There are giant pinecone statues in front of the Vatican as well as on the pope’s staff. The Egyptian staff of Osiris depicts a pinecone. Hindu deities are interwoven with both literal and symbolic representations of pinecones. Then there’s this quote from the Bible. “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.” — Matthew 6:22
It’s obvious that many spiritual traditions have this knowledge, but somehow lost the ability to connect with God or achieve enlightenment. I personally don’t see God as an external deity, but more of an eternal, omnipresent consciousness that permeates all beings, something we are a part of and when we connect to via meditation and decalcification of the pineal gland, experience an expansion of consciousness to which we perceive more unity within diversity.
It’s good to stay away from fluoride as it not only causes calcification of the pineal gland, but causes devastating health effects according to a Harvard study. “A review of brain studies involving the use of fluoride has concluded that one of the adverse effects of fluoride exposure on children is damage to their neurological development. According to the Harvard researchers, children who lived in high-fluoride areas had “significantly lower IQ than those in low fluoride areas.” Unfortunately it’s found in toothpaste, tap water, and even non-organic foods (sprayed with pesticides) which makes it difficult to get away from, but there are alternatives.
I found a really nice guide that goes into more detail on how to decalcify the pineal gland, don’t know why I became so fascinated with this all of a sudden but I figured I’d share: http://decalcifypinealgland.com/how-to-decalcify-the-pineal-gland/
