Eastern philosophies suggest that during meditation you focus your attention on the thousand petaled lotus of the third eye (see Figure 7.2). This is the seventh and highest chakra. In this way you re-orient yourself by transcending association with your gross physical self and your mental identifications and you become aware of the true source.
