The Sacred G Partnership with the Pineal Gland
For thousands of years, the pineal gland has been a mysterious actor in the play entitled, The Human Body and its Life Force. Over the centuries, it has played many cultural roles.
This very small gland, located between the two halves of the brain, was originally thought to be a vestigial remnant of a larger organ. It is long thought to have mystical powers . . . many cultures consider it a spiritual Third Eye that informs our inner vision.
The ancient Greeks believed the pineal gland was our connection to Other-worldly realms of thought – many mystical traditions and esoteric schools have taught that the pineal gland is a link between the physical and spiritual worlds.
French philosopher Renee Descartes referred to it as the seat of the human soul, believing it to be a powerful source of spiritual energy.
Centuries-old Eastern philosophy believed that the pineal gland was associated with the sixth chakra (also called Ajna or the third eye chakra in yoga). Modern Eastern thought tends to consider it as a pathway, gateway, or a portal to other dimensions.
In the 1960s, scientists discovered that one of the primary functions of the pineal gland was the production of melatonin, a chemical compound that is key to regulating the circadian rhythms.
Melatonin production is inhibited by light and enabled by darkness.
Other hormones released by the pineal gland are believed to excite and activate the development of higher-mind learning and intellectual activity.
The compound DMT is believed to be connected to this process.
Although scientists have yet to prove this, the anecdotal evidence is overwhelming.
Like many things in science, common knowledge about something may exist for centuries before scientists are able to definitively prove it as fact.
The mystery of the pineal gland has been solved.
The mystery now belongs to the production of DMT.
