Vishuddhi chakra was created on the Saturday. So, it is the Saturn – that’s the important star of the Vishuddhi chakra. …The first job of the Vishuddhi chakra within us was that, when we became human beings, we raised our heads up like that. When you raise your head up like that, you have become a human being, in the sense that now, there is a new movement in your consciousness. Now the new movement in your consciousness started about 6000 years back when Shri Krishna came on this earth. That the new movement was, that it is the Father. The advent of the Father was celebrated, and that’s how people developed a kind of a new instrument within themselves, called ego. When the brain was lifted like this you see, it expanded in a pyramidical – it’s a pyramid – it became a pyramid. In an animal, the brain is flat. And, gradually it rises. When the head was raised, when the responsibility was taken of raising the head, the brain started growing in such a way that it became a pyramid.
And when it became a pyramid, the attention became a different attention from that of animal. Because, when the waves of your consciousness fell on the sides of the pyramid, they went into the parallelogram of forces, by which the resultant force – the resultant force – now, it falls like this, goes like that, the resultant force is like that – had two sides – one was this, another was this ….So, the consciousness, or we can say, the attention – instead of going inside, started going out! So, one part of the resultant was going outside and that’s how, when you became a human being, your attention went outside. Is the human beings only, who have their attention outside. Not that the animals don’t have, but the attention of human beings are such that they create reactions……
It’s only the human beings who reflect. And this reflection comes because of the pyramid-like structure of the brain. And, this has a special reaction in the brain itself, that we start developing our own ego, our own myths, our own mental projections. And when we develop our own mental projections, this ego starts developing – I know – what’s wrong, all these nonsensical things come. And once that starts working out, the balloon of the ego starts rising. It starts pushing the other balloon which was within us, is of the superego – as an animal. And then, comes up in the center. That’s how we now become normal human beings. But then we start increasing our ego. It starts overlapping the superego, and a calcification takes place, by which we develop our I-ness. So, it is all the happening that takes place after we have lifted our head, raised our head, and we are no more like animals. So, Vishuddhi chakra has a very big part to play in the human evolution,..You become the macrocosm. You are the microcosm, and the father is the macrocosm. So, you become that because of the Vishuddhi chakra, which is governed by Shri Krishna, who becomes that macrocosm, called as Virat…….
