Third eye is important
Vinod Anand | 14 Jan 2012

I have quite often seen that only some people have a strong vision, and a third-eye. They can foresee what is going to happen in the future.

THE THIRD eye (also known as the inner eye) is a mystical and esoteric concept referring in part to the ajna (brow) chakra in certain spiritual traditions. It is also spoken of as the gate that leads within to inner realms and spaces of higher consciousness. In fact, it is very important to have such a vision. It is said in the scriptures that even if someone sees God before oneself, one does not make out whether there is God or no God. This is basically due the lack of our sentiments.

Because of the lack of this vision, people can not make out what is in front of them. It is also said that parents are like God, but most of us do not have the third eye/vision to recognize them. This world is the bouquet of God. Even nature is also a reflection of God. People see the nature, but they do not have the feeling that it is there. They get satisfied only by looking at nature. This is once again because of the lack of vision and third eye.

It is also said that one should go ahead in life by getting involved in materialistic activities, but at the same time, one should look at the Almighty through whom we have come to this world. In Indian scriptures it is said that God reflects, even in trees, rivers, animate objects, sun, moon and stars. If one has a third eye, one will look at God at every step that one takes to move ahead in the journey of life.
