Are you feeling stuck in your current situation or your life in general? Are you having trouble managing stress? Have you sought answers at spiritual retreats without getting the clarity you need?
Relief can be closer than you think if you reframe how you look at your problems. New York Times bestselling author Ilchi Lee proposes there is one root cause to all the troubles plaguing us—separation.
We put up walls in every aspect of our lives, isolating ourselves. Those walls keep us from forming healthy relationships with others, with nature, and even with ourselves. But separation has a simple cure—finding a way to connect.
In “Connect: How to Find Clarity and Expand Your Consciousness with Pineal Gland Meditation,” Lee shows how to connect to your authentic self through the pineal gland in your brain. Activate your pineal gland through the meditations rooted in an ancient Korean tradition that Ilchi Lee describes in this book. You’ll experience clarity instead of emotion, compassion rather than judgment, and wholeness in place of separation.
This book will help you find the solutions you seek by opening the inner eye that leads to greater clarity regarding the health of your body, the dreams of your soul, and the wisdom of your spirit.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Over the last 40 years, I’ve met with numerous people around the world as I’ve given countless lectures and workshops. The people I met were invariably immersed in a plethora of anxieties, looking for solutions. Seeing this, I thought hard about how I could help relieve their suffering, if only a little. So, I created and taught many methods for recovering physical health, relieving mental anxiety, and developing happiness by reconnecting with the true self. Yet, I have never been satisfied that what I have offered is enough, so I am always looking to upgrade and refine what I present to people. I took a long look back at what I’ve been doing for the last four decades and at the problems people have repeatedly presented to me, such as stress-related illnesses, depression, anxiety, and relationship issues. The more I reflected upon these common worries, the more the underlying cause became clear to me: people’s connection with themselves has been cut.
I believe that the human brain is the master key that can overcome separation and connect all things. And within the brain, the organ that acts as the channel to the pure consciousness and energy in human beings and in the universe is the pineal gland, located in the central part of the brain. So I wrote this book describing a form of Pineal Gland Meditation to help people recover this pure consciousness by revitalizing the function of the pineal gland.
Once people's insight has been awakened through Pineal Gland Meditation, they are able to experience that seemingly separate, isolated things are actually all connected. By looking at themselves, others, and the world with a broader perspective, their empathy, understanding, and tolerance grows. With eyes that see connection and unity, they can find solutions to problems caused by looking at the world as a place of separation and isolation.
It’s easy, and normal, to think that the causes of our problems are to be found outside ourselves, in other people or in the environment, but that’s definitely not it. Dig deeper, and you’ll ultimately find that the primary cause of your problems lies not in your relationship with other people or in some imperfection in the environment, but rather in your connection with yourself. Yes, the earth suffers from pollution, and the behaviors and words of others can be toxic, but the first order of business is your own inner world, not the world outside of you. In fact, you will never be able to adequately solve outside problems if the interior connection isn’t established first. You experience physical ailments, from headaches and indigestion to much more serious diseases, because your connection with your body isn’t good. And if you’re troubled, unable to find direction in some area of life, you’re not really connected with your true self.
We can see the problems that arise from disconnection in every aspect of our lives, from our individual selves to the ecosystems of the earth. There are more than two billion Facebook users worldwide with approximately 300 friends per user, but loneliness has surfaced as a greater public health risk than smoking. People may have a lot of social media friends, but they don’t have that many true friends to turn to in real life, to talk to and share their hearts with comfortably.
The greatest challenges faced by humankind today―such as climate change, gender inequality, the wealth gap, military conflicts, trade disputes, and religious conflicts―have at their roots a deep-seated mindset that separates me from you and humans from nature. A solution that’s based on separation without consideration of mutual interests can never be a true or sustainable solution, and in the end such a “solution” disadvantages everyone. Unless we heal the disconnection that is so widespread in our lives, the hole in our souls will keep getting bigger, the conflict between different social groups will grow increasingly serious, and the Earth’s environment will reach a state in which recovery is impossible.
Once you understand that disconnection is the underlying cause of your problems, then the solution also becomes clearer. All you have to do is mend your broken connections. Recover your connection with your body, your connection with your true self, and your connection with people and the world.
