Pine Cones, Paganism, the Pineal Gland & Fluoride

Pine cones have always been occultically associated with spiritual enlightenment. Whether we look at ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, Greeks or Christians, the pine cone has represented the mysterious link between the physical and the spiritual worlds, which can be found in the human brain. The pineal gland, also known as the third eye, is represented by the pine cone in occult symbolism. It is taught by Mystery schools to open the doors to spiritual perception once the seven Chakras are properly activated.[1]

Pictured below, the Pine Cone Staff of Osiris is surrounded by the two serpents of the Kundalini, which represent the spine, and the pine cone represents the pineal gland. This tiny gland is located at the center of our brain and is involved in the production of a variety of important neurotransmitters, and facilitates altered states of awareness, as you will learn.[1]
Pagans revere the Evergreen because it symbolizes eternal life. They have always coveted eternal life, and have sought it by worshiping and revering many objects they find in Nature. Of course, this type of worship is the Biblical definition of what a Pagan is. 
"Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen." Romans 1:25 KJV
The pine cone, the fruit of evergreen, has been used in Pagan symbolism and in Roman Catholicism.

Pagan groups have used the pine cone in their ceremonies, their rituals, and their art. The Roman Catholic Church uses the symbolism of the pine cone, just as any good Pagan religion would do. This fact is firm evidence that Roman Catholicism is Pagan, not Christian. In fact, we would say that Roman Catholicism is counterfeit Christianity, with Paganism at its heart.

In Paganism, the pine cone, as previously stated, is used as a symbol of the solar god Osiris, but also as a symbol of regeneration and fertility.[2

The pine cone has also shown up in Crop Circles,

and in Nazi Germany.

Manly P. Hall, a well-known Masonic historian, explains the importance of the pine cone in Freemasonry and ancient civilizations:

"Sufficient similarity exists between the Masonic CHiram and the Kundalini of Hindu mysticism to warrant the assumption that CHiram may be considered a symbol also of the Spirit Fire moving through the sixth ventricle of the spinal column. The exact science of human regeneration is the Lost Key of Masonry, for when the Spirit Fire is lifted up through the thirty-three degrees, or segments of the spinal column, and enters into the domed chamber of the human skull, it finally passes into the pituitary body (Isis), where it invokes Ra (the pineal gland) and demands the Sacred Name. Operative Masonry, in the fullest meaning of that term, signifies the process by which the Eye of Horus is opened. E. A. Wallis Budge has noted that in some of the papyri illustrating the entrance of the souls of the dead into the judgment hall of Osiris the deceased person has a pine cone attached to the crown of his head. The Greek mystics also carried a symbolic staff, the upper end being in the form of a pine cone, which was called the thyrsus of Bacchus. In the human brain there is a tiny gland called the pineal body, which is the sacred eye of the ancients, and corresponds to the third eye of the Cyclops. Little is known concerning the function of the pineal body, which Descartes suggested (more wisely than he knew) might be the abode of the spirit of man. As its name signifies, the pineal gland is the sacred pine cone in man – the eye single, which cannot be opened until CHiram (the Spirit Fire) is raised through the sacred seals which are called the Seven Churches in Asia.”

Why is the occult interested in the pineal gland?
The third eye, via the pineal gland, controls the attributes and functions of the 6th chakra (Ajna in Sanskrit) which include: clairaudience, clairsentience, clairvoyance, telepathy, ESP (extra sensory perception), intuition, and what the New Age calls the Christ consciousness (or Cosmic consciousness).The third eye, via the pineal gland, also controls the attributes and functions of the 7th chakra (called Sahasrara in Sanskrit) which include: linkage with the Higher Self, astral projection and astral travel, and ascension to the Akashic Records.[3]

How do you manipulate the pineal gland?
The awakened pineal gland can give you a sense of well-being, and altered state of consciousness. There are different methods for doing this, but the most common today is achieved through meditation, Yoga, labyrinth walking, contemplative prayer, QiGong, and Transcendental Meditation - accompanied by by the tongue touching the roof of the mouth. This stimulates the crown chakra. When the tongue goes way back so the tip touches the soft palate, it stimulates the pineal gland.   

In the Taoist tradition, the tongue connection is used to complete the Microcosmic orbit of energy [chi]. In the Tantra practice it is used primarily to quiet the mind; when you feel the Kundalini energy moving up and down the spine you have a sense of control. [4]

Pineal Gland and the Bible
The Bible has a Christian interpretation, and a gnostic or occult interpretation. This is why you have regular Judaism, and its mystical component or aspect called Kabbalah. This is the same with Christianity and Islam. Christianity has regular Christianity and its mystical component called Gnostic Christianity.

Since there are unbiblical practices in the Bible, the Gnostics have read it from their point of view and see nothing wrong with how they receive it. This is exactly what occurs when interpreting the verses that pertain to the pineal gland. The gland is mentioned in the Bible, but can be associated with hidden knowledge. Such as in Ecclesiastes 12:6-7: "Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern; Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it."

The silver cord in this verse refers to the connection between the physical body, astral body, the Higher Self, and the near-death experience. As you may recall, Solomon, the author of Ecclesiastes, fell into the evil practices. Solomon had many wives, thus breaking God's commandments to not marry pagan wives. He also built pagan temples in Israel, and all Israel was judged for their apostasy, leading to the civil war that split Israel into two nations. It is clear that God was not pleased with the way Solomon spent his time.

Then in Genesis 32:30, the Scripture reads, "And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved." Some people feel that Jacob knew about the pineal gland and was accustomed to using it. It was an ancient mystical tool used back then, however it was later stopped due to the lying spirits that could be met in that dimension. Basically, God has laid ground rules for Christians not to receive information by way of supernatural sources, and it is therefore considered as a Pagan practice.

The Pineal Gland and Fluoride
Today's fluoride use has affected the pineal gland. Dr. Jennifer Luke from the University of Surrey in England discovered that the pineal gland is the primary target of fluoride accumulation within the body. In fact, the aged pineal contains more fluoride than any other normal soft tissue. [5] Although this is a fairly recent finding, the occult world knew it all along - since they have their ways. 

Update: The Pineal Gland and Vegetarianism

By eating more raw food, and by becoming a vegetarian/vegan, you can also activate your pineal gland. I agree that eating meat daily can be harmful for you, but eliminating meat completely from your diet can harm you spiritually. If being a vegetarian is supposed to heighten psychic awareness, as this one New Ager advocates, then why do it? It only means that you are opening yourself to spirits. And besides, humans were omnivores - and the Bible clearly shows that we can eat meat.

"Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; 
even as the green herb have I given you all things." Gen. 9:3

The practice of TM, contemplative prayer, QiGong, vegetarianism, and many other practices that are said to be healthy, but are not always healthy for you spiritually. The coming world government will gradually eliminate meat-eating, and encourage heavy doses of meditation. Not only does it open the Christian to spiritual blindness, but it creates the docile personality the world government is seeking.
Proverbs 20:12 says:
"The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them."
They are provided for the Christian, however there are things we do to hinder that sight. The god of this world is attempting to veil the eyes of believers, so they will choose an esoteric path to destruction - even after they have become a child of God. Leave the pineal gland to the Pagan world of the occult, and walk the narrow path.

"Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, 
which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it." Matt. 7:14
