The pituitary gland is very small. Biology affirms that this gland is just the size of a pea and that it marvelously hangs from the very base of the brain and harmoniously rests over the sphenoid bone.
We find a marvelous trinity related with this gland. The law of the triangle rules everything created.
Indeed, three parts, two lobes and a middle, form the pituitary gland. Behold, here is the triangle, marvelous law of all creation.
Biologists believe that life is absolutely impossible without the anterior or posterior lobe of the pituitary gland.
The anterior lobe of this gland is in charge of administering the size of the structure of the cellular community. Now then we must also know that within this administration there is also regulation and control. This is the only way we can explain to ourselves how life becomes impossible without the frontal lobes of the pituitary gland.
The hyperfunction of the anterior lobe of the pituitary originates gigantic human beings. When the function of the anterior lobe is insufficient, then dwarves are the outcome. Therefore, it is logical to suppose that without the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland, life would be impossible, since this gland regulates the size of the structure of the cellular community.
Some forms of idiocy and blindness are also due to some abnormalities of the frontal lobe of the pituitary.
The function of the posterior lobe of the pituitary gland is to wonderfully invigorate the involuntary muscles of the organism. The secretion of the pituitary also effects the excretion of water from the kidneys.
Doctors use the pituitary to aid them in cases of difficult birth.
Master H.P. Blavatsky stated that the pituitary gland is the page and light bearer of the pineal gland.
Dr. Krumm-Heller, professor of medicine at the University of Berlin, stated that between the pituitary and pineal glands there is a small, very subtle channel or capillary. This channel or capillary is not found in dead bodies. Thus, these two glands are found connected by this fine channel.
There is no doubt whatsoever about electrobiology and the bioelectromagnetic forces. Why then, is a bioelectromagnetic interchange between the pineal and pituitary glands not accepted? The time has come to start analyzing all mystical sensory and psychosomatic possibilities without fanaticisms, prejudices and dogmatisms.
The yogis of Hindustan state that the lotus of two petals sprouts from the pituitary gland. The Western scientists, instead of laughing at these affirmations, should study them profoundly. To laugh at what we do not know is not scientific.
That lotus flower is found situated in the Astral body exactly between the eyebrows. The sages of Hindustan give these lotus flowers the name of chakras [“wheels”]. The yogis assure us that the pituitary chakra makes us clairvoyant. In the holy land of the Vedas there are many secret practices for the development of clairvoyance. The Hindustani state that these chakras have eight major powers and thirty-six minor.
The clairvoyant can perceive the ultra of nature. The clairvoyant can perceive the fourth dimension, and the clairvoyant can also perceive the Astral body. All the psychic and spiritual principles of the human being are found within the Astral body.
Glandular energetics cannot be denied by biologists. The bioelectromagnetic interchange of the pineal and pituitary glands makes us clairvoyant.
There seems to be a certain relationship between copper atoms and the pituitary gland. Some sages utilize the element copper to develop clairvoyance. Nostradamus remained hours gazing at the waters contained inside a receptacle of pure copper. This wise physician (Nostradamus) made prophecies that have come true with exactitude over time. The astrologists assure us that Venus influences the pituitary gland, and Venus also influences copper. Only this way can we comprehend the intimate relationship between copper and the pituitary gland.
When the Catholic priests who arrived from Spain during the times of the Conquistadors came across a group of Aztec priests, something very interesting occurred. Traditions state that when the Catholic priests were catechizing some natives, they told them of angels and archangels, etc. After their talk, the autochthonous priests invited the Catholic priests to eat. The story goes that among the foods that the Catholic priests ate was a tasty cactus. This cactus momentarily gave clairvoyance to the Spanish priests. The Catholic priests then saw angels and archangels; so terrific was their amazement that they did not know what to do. Meanwhile, the autochthonous priests smiling said, “These angels and archangels of which you spoke, we already know them.”
The account goes on to say that the Catholic priests had every one of the Aztec priests killed, considering them wizards and magicians. There is no doubt about the power that these cactuses have for the instantaneous awakening of clairvoyance to those who eat it. This cactus is the peyote. In the state of Mexico one cannot find peyote that is usable for clairvoyance. Whosoever wishes to find it must look for it either in Chihuahua or San Luis Potosi, Mexico. One must chew on it. The only good peyote is the ripe one. If it is dry, it is useless. [“We do not recommend the use of this marvelous cactus, which makes the Astral body separate itself from the physical body and preserves the lucidity of Consciousness while acting in the astral world. Indeed, what we recommend is practice, much practice [of conscious astral projection], and soon you will act and travel within the Astral body.” —Samael Aun Weor, Aztec Christic Magic]
Biology cannot underestimate the peyote nor assure in a dogmatic and intransigent way that clairvoyant perceptions are hallucinations. Similarly, if the first sages who were able to see germs with the microscope were told and assured that those germs did not exist, that what they were seeing through the lens was nothing more than hallucinations, then in this day and age we would still be ignoring the existence of germs. Therefore, we need to be less dogmatic and more studious. We need to be more eclectic and more didactic.
The pituitary gland secretes seven types of hormones.
The value of the pituitary gland in obstetrics is incalculable.
Dr. George Adoum, famous Gnostic writer and grand master of higher mysteries of the White Lodge, stated that the atom of the Cosmic Christ is found within the pituitary gland while the atom of the Father is found within the magnetic field at the root of the nose.
Biology analyzes and studies the scientific concepts of all sages. Biology came from the horrible materialism of the eighteenth century, thus now it is starting to study all the physical, psychic, and spiritual potencies of the internal secretions of the glands.
