Writing as a Shivnetra Yogi, that’s 3rd Eye Yogi, Jnana Yogi, I will tell you the whole truth and bust your illusion wide open. Are you ready?
Self is vast, vaster than anything closed eyes can imagine. Self encompasses the little mind, the imagination, the intellectual process, learning and this and that and this and that. But here comes the bomb; I’m not sure you’ll be able to handle it.
Deities are constructs of the mind.
Did you get that? Can You wrap your Self around that idea? Self encompasses the deities, too. We are One.
So, the answer is yes. You can activate the so-called 3rd eye by your Self, but you cannot do that. Only You can do that. No deity of the little I to come from someplace beyond Self to help Self achieve what Self already is.
