What happens . . . if Chi is directed into the 3rd eye (?)

Recommended Posts

Why people want to lead qi to their heads  ?   Do they think that by doing so, they can attain some  kind of 3rd  eye power ?  Or,   it is what they  think   how qi   be upgraded to the shen level  ?

 

Although you can lead qi to some part of your body to cure some disease, say ringworm or tumor , if you do it properly,   you can't  do it the same way  to upgrade your energetic level , ie from qi to shen . No  matter it is  a place  before your eyes/  inside your forehead / in your brain..etc .  Most people get it wrong because they apply their daily type of reasoning to the world  of   qi ,  thinking  that it works similarly,  which unfortunately  is not . 

 

Or, they are misled by those "brain  science ", thinking that some part of our brain in charge of some super-natural ability , and  so think that  if they can force some qi to  that part , they  will get the 3rd-eye ability ?  All such kinds of thinking  is sadly  totally untrue ..

Yes, it's a new-age/egocentric thought. Not very Taoist.

The reflecting pool must be very calm and still in order to have a proper mirror surface for detecting subtlety. Deploying the will to stir it up only caused delusion.

A cup full of turbid water before you, do you think you can use a spoon to churn up to make the water clear again? Everyone has the answer: keep the cup there for sometime without doing anything else. Then later the turbid naturally subsides down and the clearness presides over again. From this you can understand how to keep quiet and how to let the quietude preside over all to admit in changes charted by nature (only naturalness can do this work).

Of course, splashing around in puddles is natural and fun way to learn, heheh. To make the moonlight dance by rippling the water is nice looking geometry, but to think the moon is really moved by that, well, noway jose.

In Daoism it is called the celestial eye (could of course be how it was translated and not that at all) - directing energy there is part of the cycling of energy up the spine, through the head, down the nose and down the front of the body.  There's a ton of descriptive words for these areas such as the red chamber, mapgie bridge and so on.

 

The 3rd eye can vibrate very rapidly and in a very small area, then the trick is to draw that energy down the nose, the throat, the chest, the lower cauldron, and back up the spine.  It is meant to be part of the awakening process but I think it was used to a) help focus the mind away from thoughts and b ) warm up the meditator in winter.

The third eye is not opened by a “technique” - and the Third Eye can be viewed as much more than simply clairvoyance- (which is quite vast in and of itself).

 

It is also not like a widow that can be pried open.

 

It is already open in everyone - taking a magnifier and using it to concentrate the heat of light upon it “in order to feel something” is a bit like burning a million dollars to make it “do” something.

 

The greater awareness of your already very much Open Third Eye is all about neutrality / non- judgement and simply the practice of presence to the awareness you already possess.

 

The exercises one can do to advance the awareness are simple and require patience - forcing is entirely contrary to the practices and “ultra intensity” is irresponsible and counter productive.

 

The abilities in this siddhi are among the easiest to lose oneself and become a victim of its seduction.

 

if the idea is to use it to your advantage / you may “succeed” and in this you will be lost to it in the worst way. And you will become stunted by it though you will not suspect what you have lost in return.

 

If your idea is to open it for the benefit of others - spare others the conceit of your vanities - you are already seduced by your “virtues”.

Simple practice “focuses” life force upon all of the rgidized patterns that block ones Self Awareness - easing the constriction upon them.

 

Simple Practice focuses life force upon all natural essence patterns.

 

Simple practice naturally opens those abilities that most fit the intent of practice and the general cohesion

of karmic Light unfolding.

 

Practice seeing the light in everything and you are practicing

the greater opening of the third eye, the heart and connection in Presence to Divine Essence.

What about being able to see a person cringe in all eight layers of the etheric field while being zapped by the power of the almighty LDT? 

 

Isn't that a worthy spiritual goal?

I don't direct chi into the 3rd eye by mind.

The chi will open the 3rd eye by itself.

And it will show lights like auroras, stars, moon, sun and sky etc.

We originally get a  Mind having those  'supernatural ' abilities to grasp the world ,its phenomena and essence , not necessarily relies on our senses and reason . Such a power of going  beyond all physical bounds  loses  for two causes :

 

1) It  later splits and attaches to senses .

 

2) It attaches to the ego , a pseudo-self, which from our very  early ages up to our deathbeds, we stubbornly stick to  and believe its reality  . And ,  we use all our might to service it , thinking that it is  for our best interest to do so . 

 

it is by getting rid of these two causes or illusions  that we start to regain our supernatural abilities , not the other ways around . Making use of qi  is only  one of the ways that makes  it easier , compared to  other non-Taoist ways .
