Well, the lower chakras certainly have a carnal aspect to them. From the eye-center downward, the senses are in control of the mind--they dominate the mind. Only by raising our awareness to the eye-center--where the soul and mind are knotted--is it possible to escape the downward pull of the senses. And the only way to do this is through meditation at the eye-center on the Sound Current. When you meditate like this, you pull the currents upward to the eye-center-the "tenth door"-and that is the threshold to the astral. This has been my experience, not something I read in a book and simply believe on faith.

> Any thoughts on Adam and Eve's purpose?

I don't believe in a biblical Adam and Eve. Genesis is probablu antediluvian mythology, and a very distorted version at that. The only thing that comes to mind is that they are part of the myth behind which the reality of Isis and Osiris lay. To me "Eden" was the advanced civilization that preceded the physical Atlantis--an etheric reality, a "golden age", or " Sat Yuga" that still exists. The yugas--ages--come and go, and only this Kali Yuga--iron age--is densely physical. As our awareness changes with the age changes, things become less physical and more etheric.

If there is a significance to the tree shape of the kundalini, it is that in our "Fall" of consciousness into the lower planes, we put down roots in the physical plane by our attachments and desires. These roots must be pulled up if we are to attain Freedom from the senses and mind, and reunite, become One with the Source, our Creator.
