Here are 2 emails we received last night and today. As you will see,
the 2nd email carries the question from the first one further.
Although I haven't yet responded to the 2nd email, my answer is here
for the 1st one. All other comments are most welcome for both of the

place your attention on the area between your eyebrows.

First of all, I must state that from the perspective of "the mystic
me", I'm very "pro-3rd eye meditation", and it is one of my favorite
techniques. I consider our 3rd eye the doorway to reality, and the
practice of opening it a potential vehicle for presenting a vision of
our true nature....infinite consciousness, wisdom, and bliss...far
transcendent of anything our physical eyes can ever do. The light you
perceive is the illuminating wisdom and love of the creator, the act
of creation, and the creation itself.
But, the "skeptic me" recognizes that it could be simply an optic
nerve physical phenomenon, and one that has the potential to stall a
seeker for years in an ecstasy-seeking rut. So, I feel it is fair to
say that the value of any given technique will be determined only by
actually trying it and seeing if it benefits you spiritually,
physically, mentally emotionally, etc. There is one more thing I would
like to point to as well --- if a method/technique/concept brings you
greater peace, it may be a good thing, but if it takes your peace
away, it is not necessarily a "bad" thing, because maybe sometimes
(often) it may help our consciousness evolution if our life isn't
peaceful. In any event, that's "my 2 cents worth", and I hope it helps
in some way.

PS: I think your question, and perhaps my answer also, would be a
perfect thing to post on our Yahoo group
As we say here in Philly, Whattayathink?
Thank you for answering my email regarding the light that appears when
doing the 3rd eye meditation.
Yes I would love for you to post the email on your yahoo group - great
Could I ask you another question, as meditation and spiritualism etc
is all very new to me. I am absolutely fascinated by it all and have
been reading loads of books on psychics, the spirit world and self
help etc, as well as watching programmes on Sky TV such as Colin Fry
and James Van Praagh etc for about the last 2 years now.
What I wanted to ask you is, why does the light actually appear - is
it being "projected" from the 3rd eye so to speak, and if so why is this?
Also how can I make it stay as sometimes it comes and goes?
