In Attunement teachings the spirit and function of the Single Eye is represented by the adrenal glands. “If thine eye be single thy whole body shall be full of light.” This could be seen as a window through which a range of the qualities of Being may come into the world. How Spirit differentiates through the adrenal glands primarily relates to focusing power and using that force rightly as it moves out from the individual. There has been a lot of misinterpretation and misrepresentation related to this area of function and the absence of the reality of this energy, that epitomizes kindness and gentleness (do no harm), has been war and cruelty. There is a fine line that needs to be walked when it comes to stewarding this current. Great manipulation has taken place over the centuries by some who have had the privilege of using their influence to govern people religiously, politically, scientifically and/or socially. Who is purely just? Who is truly righteous in this regard? It is not a matter of an individual’s will being imposed on someone else, “my way or the highway,” or the attitude taken by a group of people in control “our way or no way.” Yet fanaticisms fill human existence. Extremists and their actions consume the media. For example, I was deeply saddened to hear of the assassination and passing of the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Benazir Bhutto. I was aware of her bright presence in that troubled land, and understood her desire to provide a more balanced form of leadership that may have shifted the chaos that is occurring. One or two percent of those who identify with radical thinking have tried to control or disrupt the other 98%. Why is this the case? Maybe there has been a loss of awareness of the divine right of power on the part of many, and a reluctance to be willing to focus what is true, letting a new direction prove itself out. The Spirit of the Single Eye is mighty, and when used accurately under the hand of Being will accomplish a lot in the changing tide of events. However, if there is over involvement or reaction to the outer world, the energy of the Single Eye becomes dissipated. When there are distractions created by a materialistic lifestyle, and a frantic endeavor to maintain the pace that is necessary to support that lifestyle, exhaustion is usually the end result.
Simply put from a physiological standpoint, the adrenal glands constantly release hormones that have a wide range of influence as they assist the body in balancing its many systems. For instance, the adrenal hormone noradrenalin stimulates melatonin production (pineal hormone). This helps a person to sleep and can reduce depression. Two other adrenal hormones, epinephrine and norepinephrine, help the body to act swiftly and forcefully in extreme situations. Living in “panic mode”, constantly confused and creating stress as well as functioning in a scattered way (not knowing what you want), places an enormous load on these glands physically and energetically. “A house divided against itself cannot stand.”
As the influence of the Attunement current is allowed to work through us, and tranquility consistently surrounds this amazing area of the body and spirit, there is the acknowledgement of the true source of power. “God is the ruler yet.” Through this atmosphere there is a relaxation into the greater forces that are at work, and an acceptance of an internal government that provides direction in all matters. As I embrace this way of life my approach can be summed up in these words, “I am available to take responsibility and offer leadership, if necessary, or I am content to yield and surrender to what is needed in the larger setting, respecting other people’s contribution.” What is to be accomplished individually and collectively can occur only when the ordinances of Being are honored, and are in place in the world that we inhabit.
