The Third-Eye Chakra is considered a bridge a meeting place where the Guru, inner teacher, communicates with the Self.
This is an internal relationship often reflected externally in a Guru/Disciple relationship. Many subtle initiations can occur here between our inner Guru our Higher Power and the Self.
Within the gateway of our inner temple, our inner Divine eye of intuition and knowledge can receive profound revelations and insights that can lead to a spiritual awakening.
This door of perception reveals Truth, Consciousness, and Light when awakened. The removal of the darkness and ignorance, “GU”, and are now embodying the light of knowledge, “RU”. Therefore the meaning of the word “Guru” is the eternal master who expels the darkness and ignorance wit the torch of knowledge.
Ajna is where the Buddhi, our Cosmic Intelligence, sits.
The wisdom that emerges from the Fire of discernment cleansing our perceptions, opinions, attachments, sparks our revelationary knowledge.
Here when the Yogi controls the mind and senses, one becomes able to “Dwell within the Self” becoming the “Witness” and attaining our “Buddhahood” or True Self.
At Ajna Chakra all Karmic chains our Samskaras/Vasanas are burnt with the Fire of discernment the power to recognize what is real and unreal and see the Truth and BE THE TRUTH – our TRUE SELF a being of LIGHT and LOVE.
