Third eye, the gate that leads within

The third eye is universal. In the Indian tradition it is


jnana-chaksu, the eye of knowledge, the seat of the
antar-guru, or 'teacher inside'. In Buddhist art, it is
figured as a gem on the forehead of buddhas. And in the
words of the Gospels,
The light of the body is the eye: if therefore
thine( thickest) eye be single, thy whole body shall be
full of light. (Matthew 6:22)
The third eye, in essence, is the portal to inner
realm(kingdom). The Upanishads describe a human
being as a city with ten gates. Nine gates (eyes, nostrils, ears, mouth, urethra, anus) lead
to the outside world. The tenth gate, the third eye, opens onto inner worlds: the whole
spectrum of levels of consciousness.
The approach of the school is resolutely experiential. It is designed for people who
cannot be satisfied only with other people's opinions and beliefs, but wish to gain firsthand experience of levels of consciousness. In short, it is not what you presume or
accept as true that will bring about transformation, but what you experience directly.
Clairvision therefore always emphasizes the superiority of experiential knowledge over
belief and dogma.
The Clairvision work therefore begins with a systematic method for developing the third
eye, as a foundation for a direct experience of inner realms.
Here, nothing vague! The indications are clear, the techniques precise, the first
results immediate and tangible.
Through the third eye work students develop their own mapping of consciousness: a
systematic if not scientific method of inner exploration.
The idea that experiences of consciousness are vague and incommunicable has absolutely
no place in this work. On the contrary, the school has developed a whole methodology for
people to compare experiences and exchange observations, thereby bringing objectivity
into the realm of subjectivity.
Since the creation of the school in 1987, this has resulted in the gathering of a huge
amount of material, documented in the form of books and lectures. A sophisticated
model of consciousness has emerged, principles of which are presented in A Language
to Map Consciousness, by Samuel Sagan.
