I just posted some illuminating thoughts on FB about the Pineal Gland. I realize I haven’t really talked about the pineal gland since my youtube was shut down seven years ago and since it is a topical item included in my current painting in process, I thought maybe I should revisit the topic.
If you don’t know about the pineal gland… GOOGLE THAT SHIT, PRONTO!
TLDR: The Pineal Gland is “the inner eye.” It has cones and rods just like your outer eyes. It is sensitive to things that cross the blood-brain barrier. (B cubed.) It is sensitive to electromagnetic pulse that is directly connected to the heart. Symbolically it is represented by a pine cone (which may seem innocuous but profound.) Sophia. Wisdom. Sacred Heart. Empathy. Intuition. Reason. Motivation.
Let’s get down to brass tacks; There are reasons you may have never heard of or thought of the Pineal before. Perhaps your are Catholic and visited the Vatican and thought ” Why is there a giant pine cone in the middle of their courtyard?” It’s called the Pigna, Rione of Rome. Seriously check out the images linked and the wiki link, you will glean some insights. Here is a Catholic sight with Catholic perspective. I am not Catholic, or any religion. This piece of writing is unbiased and only my perception of the topic, links are to be discerned by your own connection to spirit. Feel free to share your insights in a message or comment.
Recently I have been researching Sophia. In Roman Catholic doctrine she represents Wisdom; The Holy Spirit, which may challenge your ideas on the Trinity as the Trinity is generally seen void of the feminine. Sophia has an interesting story when it comes to Creation and the archetype that she has been made to represent in culture.
I don’t usually explain my paintings, left to the observer to decipher or interpret; however this piece is pretty intentional in focus because of it’s lack of randomness. I usually just paint as I feel fit, this painting started random and has taken on new life because the idea and spirit of Sophia keeps rising to the top of the topic list and I need to explore her and her energy. Undoubtedly there is a reason that Hansen Robotics named their most notable and recognizable AI, Sophia. (Let’s face it, all creators follow some sort of script and Sophia has been obscured for quite a while.) In my opinion Sophia has been hidden for a reason and once you look into her, you may come to some of the same ideas.
Hagia Sophia! Wisdom!
As I attempt to write this piece I have to undo deletes that I didn’t authorize.
Here are the visual images and post I made to FB.
The pine cone aka the Pineal Gland is the Sacred Heart.
Most depictions of the Pine Cone are upside down. Tiny at top, and broad on the bottom, essentially a detached and dead pine cone.
The Sacred heart is represented as vibrant and thorny yet detached as well but right side up… Coniferous Pine trees are thought to be the most ancient plant genera on the planet, having existed nearly three times longer than all flowering plant species. In this idea the Pine Tree would be the Tree of Life. It bares an inedible fruit that keeps giving while the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil bares a fruit which would be succulent and consumable (perhaps to the point of sickness.)
This leads me to the life sucking reality of the Pine Beetles being a greater allegory for our current reality. Why one type of beetle? Why one type of tree? What is the tree here to teach? What is the purpose of the beetle? What is the cure? How do you perceive the process of extinction? Does it matter? How does it relate to the pineal gland?
Mind, Body, Spirit. Heart, Mind and Soul.
Protect it, it is your direct connection to Source. The pineal can vibrate with the heart syncing it’s electromagnetic pulse. “For those with eyes to see, and ears to hear.” The pineal has cones and rods just like an eye. “If it offends the eye, pluck it out.” If you disconnect or pluck out the inner eye, you lose a connection to your heart that fuels intuition, empathy and moral consciousness.
Are you starting to see it? Sophia is the fulcrum between mind, matter and creation with positive and protective intent. Sophia is every mother figure killed in every Disney movie, leaving the protagonist to grapple between worlds disconnected from Source; meanwhile we are literally beat over the head to whole heartily trust in and follow men.
“Behind every good man is a woman, that is unless you erase that idea.”
Sophia’s story puts her at the helm of the beginnings of Creation. Her input matters. She becomes so involved in the creation that she joins it. Immerses herself in it and in that way changes the outcome beyond unbiased observation/experimentation. She becomes one with the experiment, she influences observation.
She is “The Holy Mother of All”. When you strip away the religion, and look at Creation as experimental pioneers the whole story takes a new shape.
Recently I have been asking out for Divine inspiration, the climate of the world has had me down and I have needed/wanted a new insight for inspiration. I have been calling out for intervention and motivation… This is when Sophia came to call. I was surprised at her subtlety… perhaps that is how she was buried for so long.
Obviously she is a master of patience. I encourage you to seek her out and ask her more about herself. Obviously we are not void of her inspiration, we just never caught her name.
