Seeing the Bigger Picture with the Inner Eye
Some issues can be addressed in an “American Feel Better Minute” (see March 30th blog). Some are to be explored in a lifetime, such as the Inner Eye.
The properties of the Inner Eye Chakra or Third Eye Point (approximately between the eyes) are truth, intellect, self-evaluation, intuition, spiritual insight and seeing the bigger picture.
According to (R)evolutionScape: There are two things to keep in mind:1. The mind is not contained only in the brain. It is all over your body and
beyond it. It is infinite, just like spirit. Your mind and your brain are two ‘separate’ things.
2. There is only truth as Reality, and truth and love are very much tied together, the same thing. Fear is tied to and is the same thing as illusion. These are the root polarities of everything that exists.
So this chakra involves itself with the discovery of truth about your self
and your world. It seeks to go within to your inner self and see what it can find there. It seeks to listen to the unseen power of your being. It recognizes that you may be in this world but not of this world. And it seeks to place your experiences in the context of the bigger picture of life and not just look at them from the fear-based point of view of ego.
Poor development in this chakra results in false beliefs about your self, fear of who you really are, and untrue perception.
Once you start dealing with this chakra, you enter a space that is increasingly harder to define using the symbols of language such as words. Inner wisdom is not linear and analytical like the ego thinking is. You cannot cut it up and analyze it. It is in whole.
You cannot be taught inner wisdom. You can only be pointed in the right direction.
Only you alone can take the journey within. You can receive help but the steps and discovery are yours to make. In fact you have tremendous amounts of help available to you.
