Series 2 - Lesson 7 - Annotation 8

What place in man's body symbolizes the point at which man first makes conscious unity with God?

8. The top of the head (the I AM center) is symbolical of the place in consciousness where man makes his first conscious unity with God. Looking up in prayer, entering the "inner chamber," going up "into the mountain," the gathering of the disciples in the upper room, rising mentally into the spiritual realm, dwelling "in the secret place of the Most High" — these all testify in symbolism to the highest place in consciousness — the Christ consciousness — which man can conceive and to which he can ascend.

"I will lift up mine eyes (vision, perception of the things of Spirit) unto the hills" (the high place of spiritual understanding), for it is from this high consciousness that comes our help, our power and ability to overcome limitation, to rise triumphantly over every adverse condition and situation. "My help cometh from the Lord" (Psalms 121:2).
