The pineal gland is the connection point for the Spirit or Soul. It is the physical center for, and transmitter of, psychic phenomena such as telepathy, clairvoyance in time and space, and the actual influence of thoughts on the physical surroundings. When activated, the pineal gland becomes the line of communication with the higher planes. The crown chakra reaches down until its vortex touches the pineal gland. Prana, or pure energy, is received through this energy center in the head. With practice the vibration level of the astral body is raised, allowing it to separate from the physical. To activate the ‘third eye’ and perceive higher dimensions, the pineal gland and the pituitary body must vibrate in unison, which is achieved through meditation and/or relaxation.
“When a correct relationship is established between personality, operating through the pituitary body, and the soul, operating through the pineal gland, a magnetic field is created. The negative and positive forces interact and become strong enough to create the ‘light in the head.’ With this ‘light in the head’ activated, astral projectors can withdraw themselves from the body, carrying the light with them.”
“The pineal works primarily by converting the higher dimensional Light, that is constantly streaming into your reality, into usable information for your pituitary. As it gradually activates, the pineal permits the body to move its vibrational patterns into higher and higher levels. This process also allows your Light Body to
attach itself even deeper into your physical instrument (Fig. 17).
Our process is to reset the focus in the pineal. This chemical ‘lens’ largely disappears as you grow older. The decrease in its efficacy is one of the major reasons for your body aging as quickly as it does. When the pituitary begins to receive the consciousness
energy packets from the Well of Dreams through its interaction with the pineal, it secretes enzymes that permit the chemical ‘lens’ in the pineal to reappear. As this ‘lens’ strengthens, it allows the RNA/DNA protein strings in your cells to activate your ‘third strand’.”
There are numerous anatomical and physiological idiosyncrasies associated with the pineal. It is one of the few solitary organs (most organs in the brain are paired, left and right). While small, the blood flow to the gland is quite large. The pineal has been considered as a homologue of the reptilian ‘third eye’. Its photosensitivity derives from neural connections with the retina. The Taoist practice of Orgasmic Upward Draw is very important to help stimulate the
pineal gland. Taoists regard the pineal as the second sexual gland (Fig. 19).
Nothing could be more natural than the state of Wu Chi, nothingness, or divine grace. And yet, the realization of Wu Chi is clouded by obscurations and confusions. Consciousness streams into every body, but only a few can see the light. Why is this so? An essential function of the “upper brain”, the Upper Tan Tien, is to manifest the esoteric and divine realizations of consciousness into our humanly bodies. Chi spirals through the Crown and the Third Eye into the pineal and pituitary glands, sustaining existence and nourishing the spirit. Infants and children bask in the glow and the power of the Chi Field streaming into, and interacting with, their bodies. The psyche is vibrant and alive and the energy bodies communicate in non-physical dimensions. As we grow older, however, the internal realities begin to fade and the external world begins to predominate
our existence. By puberty, the pineal gland has ossified into a calcified strand of tissue. Our minds project outwardly, and the demands of existence (work, family, daily living, etc.) preoccupy our awareness. Our emotions (fears, angers, resentments and all kinds of distractions to make ends meet) reflect this outward movement of the psyche. Fear is the oldest negative emotion.
The transition from an internally focused awareness of the Divine, the natural state of infancy, to an externally focused awareness of the adult world, requires significant shifts in the chemistry of the brain. The tissues and molecules which normally manifest the consciousness of Wu Chi must be “turned off” or inhibited.
Chemically, the inhibitors are enzymes such as MAO (monoamine oxidase) which rapidly convert seratonin into inactive by-products, thus disabling the synthesis of the spirit molecules. The enzyme MAO breaks down seratonin before it can be converted into melatonin, 5-MeO-DMT and DMT (Fig. 20).
Our usual perception of the world in waking consciousness is, in fact, a state of waking ignorance. The brain must inhibit our true nature and divine connections to survive in the physical world. In everyday life, we see everything back to front, as it were. We perceive the primary actions of the brain as providing us with sensibility and cognitive awareness. In fact, the brain’s mechanism is to filter and shut off the flow of divine consciousness, making possible survival on Earth, but obscuring all transcendental realities. Dark Room meditations remove the obscurations. The inhibitory functions of the brain are lifted, and we revel in the experience of Oneness, Wu Chi, the Original Source.
Reawakening – Spirit Molecules
Waking consciousness satisfies the demands of physical existence, but severs the connection from the Divine. Thus, each night we must disconnect from the outer world and reconnect with our divine source, thereby sustaining life and nourishing the soul. In adult life, the experience of Wu Chi is relegated to the unconscious domains of deep sleep and the supernatural worlds of dream. In Taoist Inner Alchemy, we reawaken the soul to the Immortal Tao, the Wu Chi, the Original Source, and bring back the Divine into our conscious awareness.
Chemically, the reconnection to the Divine occurs by inhibiting the enzymatic actions of MAO and INMT, so that seratonin can convert into melatonin and melatonin into the spirit molecules 5-MeO-DMT (5-methoxy-dimethyltryptamine) and DMT (dimethyltryptamine) (Fig. 21). The enzymes are inhibited by substances
secreted in the pineal gland, such as harmaline and pinoline. The “spirit molecules” allow us to reconnect to divine consciousness. They cause “color imagery, out of body experiences, lucid dreams, visions of beings and/or animals, mystical states, subjective “other realities” and experiences of “being
somewhere else.” These states are the language of dream.
In the Dark Room experience, the “spirit molecules” pinoline, 5-MeO-DMT and DMT alter the receiving qualities of the brain. The brain “tunes in” to invisible worlds and parallel universes, like a television tuning in to different channels. Mystical and near-death, out-of-body experiences reflect dynamic equilibria between “channels” in which we experience the essential energy that courses through the receiver.
When you reach the ‘DMT state’ you begin to function consciously from the various psychic centers or chakras. The bodily processes of ‘Healing Love’ combine the human states of true compassion and sexual arousal to create a new chemistry and a new vibration within the body. This ‘special’ vibration occurs at a
frequency of 8Hz. ‘As in the macrocosm, so it is in the microcosm’; hence if we make love, then all the cells and DNA actually make love as well. The DNA crosses over, like two serpents intertwined in an erotic embrace. You need the orgasmic vibration to arouse this crossover process which leads to the ‘two giving
birth to three’; the conception of new cells. The two vital states are compassion and arousal leading to orgasm. Both are inextricably linked to love.
