How We Receive the Sun’s Energy
We know that millions of little photoreceptors in our eye’s retina convert light into signals that stimulate biological processes in the body’s cells. Most of these receptors take the form of cones or rods, but there is a third type, discovered in the 1990’s, called intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells (ipRGCs), which support our circadian rhythms via the pineal gland . The pineal is the gland in the center of the brain, often spoken of as the ‘third eye’. While it appears to be dormant in most of us, it is the primary receptor of the Pneuma that nourishes our Psyche and its related psychic senses. Blind people are able to receive the sun’s radiation from these ipRGCs via the pineal gland . As noted by the 13th Century poet Rumi, “Close both eyes, To see with the other eye.”
If you have not discovered the works of Amish Shah, have a look at the following link to see what he has to say about the Pineal Gland.
I talk about the Pneuma entering our Psyche, or HigherAmish Shah refers to it as the Infinite Consciousness. Guy Finlay calls it the Immortal Self. Whatever you call it, it is best understood experientially, so why not not explore for yourself?
