I have read the whole thread about this third eye thing and I wanted to ask you for opionion because I saw you done a great contribution to this
thread and have a wide knolwedge.
this whole thread is very interesting to me, and I am very new to whole this thing, although I didnt get to this thread by coincidence
1)so in a way I think of human body and soul as a ultimate and perfect machine, with great potentials to unlock. I got some knolwedge from medicine
but I want to keep my questions as simple possible - as I understood, the pineal gland (third eye) is one of the main subjects here so the thing is -
I know that human body itself produces various hormones/substances that can cause our brain/body to work in many different ways. The pineal gland
derivates for example a hormone - melatonin, whic can be often found in psychedelic drugs like '___' and others. So by different routines and workouts
you can stimulate your body to produce more, lets say, melatonine, which could be compareable to natural way of getting this drug into you. Because of
the amount at first you start to see some lower level hallucinations, and perhaps act schisophrenic. This I find very similar to people that are on
This effect however can be a great feeling, but also a horrific nightmare, and I remember a friend of mine that was usin '___' telling me that
sometimes he has a "good or bad trip", meaning good - great feelings, bad - for example he was seeing witch hunting him and he was running throughout
the old part of our town like crazy.
How can you say that all the feelings/perceptions/abilities you are getting from lets say practicing exercises from that pdf file on page 2 or
stiimulating third eye are not only hallucinations/schisophrenia. The more you get into it the greater and/or more severe it can get.
Im asking all this because these 2 things remind me of each other (drugs and exercises) and from my experience drugs (narcotics) can have some
benefits, but downside is huge and its a great problem in the society. Also I saw a brain magnetic resonance picture of my friend and couple of his
friends and they litteraly had holes in their brains because of drugs use. They gained nothing good, and today they arent really able to live a normal
life; they are plants-like and need to be taken care of.
2)I feel confident about myself, I think Im a well balanced person both physically and mentally and I was thinking of trying to do some of exercises
myself, easy and step by step, if I make sure they are healthy and they dont make me delusional or crazy. I definantely want to advance myself
spiritually and on every whay possible in order to understand world and universe around me better and to be a better person and maybe help others if
possible. what age do you find apropriate for starting this practice and is there any way or test that can tell me if I am ready for such thing?
3)I read a pdf file from page 2 only briefly and just couple of topics, and although its very informative, on some of the topics its more than
strange. for example it says in one part that I shouldnt waste my time reading the whole thing and gathering informations - instead i should
immidiately begin wiht a hard practice and exercises. i find that and many other lines manipulative and ignorant, and how come some extra information
about whole thing can do bad to me? author quoted this: "Wasted time is known by God." - how can he tell if I am wasting my time? perhaps it is my
way? only god can tell if my time is wasted. pushing me into dark and unknown seem like with not good intetions, I mean it will definantely be unknown
road but why is he insisting in this? what do you think about it?
4)on this thread I see some people talking about demons/angels/some mythological creatures (at least mythological to me) so I was interested, could
someone, that is not raised in for example in christian spirit, or any religious surroundings, lets say comunist kid born in china, can that kid dream
of demons/mythological creatures/jesus christ and other things, since he never heard of them? is it not logical to say that all those things are given
to us as a gift we can not return and they are simulation to our thoughts since we are kids, so this is why they are present - because we are taught
of them? and they dont even have to be necessarily existing?
I am sorry for writing a wall of text, I will undertand if you dont feel like answering to it
also I am very sorry for many grammar and spelling mistakes i have made writing it, and not spending much time trying to correct them.
wish you all the best, and thanks in advance
