Valis, Philip K. Dick: "The third eye had to be re-opened if we were to get out of the maze."
“The third eye had to be re-opened if we were to get out of the maze,” Mini said, “but since we no longer remembered that we had that ajna faculty, the eye of discernment, we could not go about seeking techniques for re-opening it. Something outside had to enter, something which we ourselves would be unable to build.” (Philip K. Dick, Valis)
In Sant Mat that outside force is the living master. "Sant Mat (the path and teachings as taught and practiced by Saints [Sant Satgurus]) delineates the path of union of soul with God... The tenth gate is also known as the sixth chakra, the third eye, bindu, the center located between the two eyebrows. This is the gateway through which we leave the gates of the sense organs and enter in the divine realms and finally become established in the soul." (Swami Santsevi Ji Maharaj)
