When we are united as being and non-being, spirit and flesh, Sophia and
Christ, then we are one, the om, dynamic timelessness- the all-encompassing
Tree of Life, pulsating in the living now of the Self which is beyond
This happens as the kundalini within rises upward and out of the lotus-
the crown chakra- exiting the confines of the body. Through this opening, at
the top of the head, the serpentine flesh-consciousness is united with
spirit, and Earth and Heaven commingle into one.
Though duality merges at the third-eye, the inner soul cannot get out
through that chakra, but only through the crown chakra.
The inner sanctum lies above the crown chakra, in ‘the thousand-petalled
lotus’, as it is called in the east. This is where Sophia rises out of the
It is for this reason that Shiva is often depicted with his female
aspect, Parvati, emerging out of the top of his head. It is also for this
reason that most of the female Hindu deities are represented artistically as
sitting upon a lotus- for they have risen into consciousness and then reside
above the thousand-petalled lotus, which is the open crown chakra.
This emergence of the inner, divine feminine is the alchemical stage of
purification, when the soul, grown conscious and enervated from the
overtures of the spirit, rises out of the flesh through the crown chakra.
Thus the soul of matter has been freed from limitation.
The Mother energy exists initially as a potent, writhing mix of molten,
primordial chaos- a viscous pool of ethereal, unconditioned prima materia-
which dwells in the root chakra, which is the earth. She then rises through
the individual, up the kundalini pathway, and is transformed into Sophia- or
the Goddess, or Psyche- after exiting the physical form, through the top of
Immense energy is exchanged through the third-eye and crown chakra through
which we are awakened to our eternal, androgynous, limitless true nature.
Spirit becomes dense like flesh through the crown chakra. The flesh becomes
light as spirit, through the same.
The rising of the kundalini ends as the absolute union of Mother and
Father forces, in the astral inner sanctum where one is divine.
Because the spirit has descended into the flesh, the soul, housed in the
flesh, can now rise into union with the spirit.
'Third eye' development, imagination, and visualization are important
ingredients in many methods to separate from the physical form. Intuition is
also achieved through 'third eye' development. Knowledge and memory of the
astral plane are not registered in full waking consciousness until the
intuition becomes strong enough. Flashes of intuition come with increasing
consistency as the 'third eye' as activated to a greater degree, through
The pineal gland corresponds with divine thought after being touched by
the vibrating light of Kundalini. Kundalini starts
its ascent towards the head center after responding to the vibrations from
the 'light in the head.' The light is located at the top of the sutratma, or
'soul thread', which passes down from the highest plane of our being into
the physical vehicle.
The 'third eye,' or 'eye of Siva,' the organ of spiritual vision, is
intimately related to karma, as we become more spiritual in the natural
course of evolution.
As human beings continue to evolve further out of matter, on the journey
from spirit to matter back to spirit, the pineal gland will continue to rise
from its state of age-long dormancy, bringing back to humanity astral
capacities and spiritual abilities.
At certain brainwave frequencies, a sense of ego boundary vanishes. In
the theta state, we are resting deeply and still conscious, at the threshold
of drifting away from or back into conscious awareness. As the brain enters
deeper states, our consciousness is less concerned with the physical state,
our 'third eye' is active, and separation becomes natural. Many native
traditions and mystical practices refer to the ability of 'seeing,' or being
aware of energy fields at higher levels. This abstract awareness is much
more subjective and does not involve the normal level of mundane
consciousness, which is mostly concerned with self-identity. This 'seeing'
refers to the sight of the 'third eye'.
Consciousness is raised from an emotional nature into an illumined
awareness when the pineal gland is lifted from dormancy. If the pineal gland
is not yet fully developed, it will be in the course of evolution. When our
sense of ego and personality are set aside and we keep our mental energy
intact, we can become conscious of the non-physical, our inner self, the
subconscious, through different practices to activate the 'light in the
