What are some of the feelings that fall into the domain of love?
Compassion, forgiveness, joy, bliss, generosity, patience, tolerance, understanding, gentleness, respect, honor and the like all have their source in the emotion of love.
What are those that can be linked to fear?
reason why those in power still seek to control the common people through fear.
These people are combating the awakening of a deeper human awareness with a virtual sensory onslaught, TV, sex, utterly meaningless celebrity gossip, more and more baubles and beads and more and more by promoting an atmosphere of fear.”
Wars, terrorism, crime coverage, food shortages, gas shortages, exaggerated epidemics, anything they can think of to produce negative energy and a climate of fear, stress, hatred and intolerance and to a certain degree, they have succeeded.
Science has now shown that while we have the ability to be a much higher and advanced creature, (through the power of love and with other good habits of healthy living), we are not utilizing that power.
This potential enlightened state of being is theorized to come from using what some call “Junk DNA”, which is amazingly 98% of out DNA! Some others call this “Divine DNA” because of it’s amazing ability to develop, organize and change, all by itself! Some scientists believe the DNA’s evolution is only possible by the “enlightenment” that comes from a “wireless connection” with the pineal gland, and the emotion of love.
Why the Pineal gland you ask? I had hardly even heard of it before looking into this myself. “This tiny gland is located at the center of our brain and is involved in the production of a variety of important neurotransmitters, and facilitates altered states of awareness.” It is thought to open the doors to spiritual perception.” It was known as the “dream center”, both physically and spiritually by the people in the past.
The Physiological Importance of the Pineal Gland
“During the late 1990’s in England, a scientist by the name of Jennifer Luke undertook the first study the effects of sodium fluoride on the pineal gland. She determined that the pineal gland. . . was a target for fluoride. The pineal gland simply absorbed more fluoride than any other physical matter in the body, even bones.
Because of the pineal gland’s importance to the endocrine system, her conclusions were a breakthrough. Her study provided the missing link to a lot of physiological damage from sodium fluoride that had been hypothesized but not positively connected. . .
Good news though. Frequent exposure to outdoor sunshine, 20 minutes or so at a time, will help stimulate a fluoride calcified pineal gland.”
(source: here) A good diet and regular exercise will also detox the body helping to facilitate the removal of the fluoride as well.
There is a fascinating connection with the Pineal gland, emotions (good or bad) and our DNA. It is speculated that the ancients knew not only about the power of the emotions of fear and love, but of the Pineal gland as well, and it’s transforming abilities to the DNA.
It’s ancient symbols were a pine cone, sometimes a pomegranate or a pineapple.”Pine cones have always been associated with spiritual enlightenment. Whether we look at ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, Greeks or Christians, the pine cone has represented the mysterious link between the physical and the spiritual.”
The Egyptian Staff of Osiris, dating back to approximately 1224 BC, depicts two intertwining serpents rising up to meet at a pine cone. It could be this very staff that inspired the myth of Moses holding up the bronze snake on a pole to spiritually “save” people from dying. No doubt it symbolized a spiritual awakening (or the opposite of) to the Jews of that time. Likely though, the meaning and history of the pine cone has been lost to the Jews?
Our “Pine”al Gland is shaped like (and named after) the Pine cone and is intimately linked to our body’s perception of light. Which may be why the Pineal gland was also considered by many to be our biological “Third Eye”, the “Epicenter of Enlightenment” or the “dream center”.
The third eye has been used as an ancient religious symbol for many groups. The Freemasons believe your connection to God is through opening your “third eye” and letting the light of God in you. The 33rd degree Freemason, and 31st president of the United States, Franklin D. Roosevelt, had this symbol printed on the dollar bill in 1933 and to this day that symbol is still seen on the dollar bill.
Pine cones also regularly appear framed in Freemason Octagons on the ceilings of Masonic Lodges, and Large Freemason sculptures. On the side of the Whitehall Building in the New York they depict two enormous intertwining snakes spiraling up to a pine cone. (which is striking similarity to the Staff of Osiris).
The pine cone and third eye were symbols of secret societies in Europe long before anyone heard of the United States. Freemasonic and secret society symbolism actually goes back to the ancient world.
Modern scholars and philosophers have noted the symbolic parallels of the “third eye” to the Indian “Kundalini,” a spiritual energy in the body depicted as coiled serpents rising up from the base of the spine to the Third Eye (Pineal Gland) in the moment of enlightenment. Awakened Indian Kundalini energy represents the merging and alignment of the Chakras, and is said to be the one and only way to attain the “Divine Wisdom”, bringing pure joy, pure knowledge and pure love. (Could this be the beginning of the concept of God being love. . .or rather, love being god?)
Depictions of Hindu deities are also interwoven with symbolic representations of serpents and pine cones. In some cases, Hindu gods are carved, sculpted or drawn holding a pine cone.
There is also an ancient carving depicting Ahura Mazda as holding a pine cone. (Ahura Mazda is the highest deity of worship in Zoroastrianism. The word Ahura means light and Mazda means wisdom. Thus Ahura Mazda is the lord of light and wisdom. ) In Babylon the pine cone was connected with the god Tammuz.
” Ancient Assyrian palace carvings, dating back to 713-716 BC depict four-winged God-like figures purposefully holding aloft pine cones, or in some cases, using a pine cone to pollinate their depiction of the Tree of Life — a tribute to the Pine cone’s symbolism as an icon of enlightenment.”
In yet another culture’s tribute to the Pine cone, a statue of the Mexican god “Chicomecoatl” (“Seven Snakes”) again depicts the deity offering forth pine cones in one hand, and an evergreen tree in the other.
The Greeks and Romans also incorporated the Pine cone into their elaborate systems of religious belief and mythology. Dionysus, later known as Bacchus to the Romans, was continually depicted carrying a “Thyrsus,” a fennel staff woven with ivy and leaves and topped with a pine cone.
Romans later built an enormous bronze sculpture, the “Pigna,” in the shape of a huge pine cone three stories tall! The Pigna is confirmed to have served as a large fountain overflowing with water next to the Temple of Isis in Ancient Rome, however, the gigantic statue now sits directly in front of the Catholic Vatican in the “Court of the Pine cone.”
Catholic religious tradition is intricately interwoven with pine cones, perhaps most prominently atop the sacred staff carried by the Pope himself. The Coat of Arms of the Holy See, found on the Vatican flag among other places, features a stacking of three crowns suspiciously similar in shape to a pine cone. The very name, “Holy See,” appears to many to be a direct reference to the Third Eye…
Pine cones also turn up as sources of “illumination” in the church, such as candle holders and lamps, seemingly symbolic of the spiritual illumination the “Third Eye” represents.
All of these factors lead philosophers and sceptics to accuse the Catholics of using their religion to veil the blind public to true spiritual enlightenment: The awakening of our Pineal Gland. Some people also believe the Freemasons even today understand the spiritual significance of the Third/single/middle Eye, and regularly pay iconic tribute to it, while continuing to placate the masses with a doctrine of religious and cultural dogma that will leave them in fear.
Of course the Bible believing Christian always knew that those other religions were of Satan, and so it should be no shock to see such “pagan” symbols, representing repression and “spiritual” blindness in those religions or “cults”. . .but a Bible verse seems to come to my mind on the subject: “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore your eye be single, your whole body shall be full of light.”-Matthew 6:22 That verse would make no sense if it weren’t for the understanding about the middle or “single” eye being the pineal gland, by the writers of the Bible. . .(unless of course Bible-excuseres, that is, Bible scholars have come up with some new complicated meaning for it that renders it excusable for past interpretations.)
Surly that is all i the Bible still, and it is not a great case for Pagan symbolism to be in the Bible. . .Well, some say that the Pine cone was originally the “fruit” from the biblical Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil in Eden. Was it really meant then to be a literal story with Eve gnawing on this pine cone, or as those other leaders holding the pine cone, was it suppose to just symbolize something?
This creation myth I believe, as all the rest in the world, shows a beginning. This seems to be the birth of distinguishing or perceiving something as good and another as evil; one thing as pleasant and another as unpleasant; right and wrong. To cut-it-short: this was the beginning of objectification — this was the birth of self-awareness.
If you take most cultures “Beginning” stories back far enough they have some kind of a similar account or notion to them. I know that in Taoism they paint the picture of a time where mankind lived in a peaceful “Eden-like” state with all of creation, and that they fell from this when they started to distinguish themselves as other-than and greater-than the rest of the animals and nature. . .a mistake leading to many others.
In Kabbalah it describes more of a vast organism of Spirits in which some of them became self-aware — thus creating a vacuum. Once we set one thing apart as good, we create evil. Once we set one thing apart as beautiful, we create the ugly.
If you believe in the message of the Bible, then I would hope that you can at least agree to the goal of “peace that passeth all understanding”. . .but the Bible says that comes from a dying to “self” or better put: dying to self-awareness. So then is it bad to be self-aware according to the Bible, and yet the pineal gland represents becoming enlightened with it’s use. . .
Or maybe Christians have missed the whole point of the story of Jesus; maybe the “kingdom of God” is actually here now (as Jesus said quite blankly) and it is just up to us to become aware of it’s mental connotations, as well as spiritual. . .but not literal.
We certainly need to be aware of our inner self to be a part in this kingdom that is “not of this world”. But how do we accomplish this self-awareness? Well, some pray for something or someone else to give it to them, believing that inner self to be God’s voice or will. Others fast, some punish their bodies or go through extreme acts of asceticism, some even try drugs or other intoxicants to get ” out of this world”! In Zen it is all about stopping and listening. In Christianity,”The Spirit giveth life” we are told. The Bible also says, that this same Spirit “will lead you into all truth”. Could this “Holy Spirit” they believe is “God”, (although historically it wasn’t believed to be a part of the “Godhead” at all) actually just be another manifestation of the way the meditations of Zen open themselves up to a greater self awareness by listening to their own conscious? Or are all types of religious meditation a way to disengage the frontal and temporal lobe circuits, the very thing which tracks time and creates self-awareness? Studies of the brain now confirm that in fact, even though the relaxation in religious meditation is beneficial in some ways, it dissolves the mind-body connection responsible for self awareness. . .So while you are technically becoming more self aware through meditation, some people would instead call it “God aware” because of that mental disconnect.
So, to sum it all up, if you want to be like “God” as Eve in the Garden of Eden did. . .
- Live a life of love, (practicing the many positive emotions associated with it,) for your own good, not because you are told to.
- Support the pineal gland with a good diet, 20 minutes of sun a day or more, and exercise.
- Avoid pineal suppressing fear based emotions, fluoride, drugs and religions, that are pretty much all based on fear and the suppression of enlightenment and self-awareness.
- Instead, exercise your mind in self-awareness techniques like meditation, Yoga, walks in the woods alone. . .
And you will be enlightened, thinking person, like the Ancient “Gods”.
