The third eye is an invisible eye that is often depicted on the forehead and is said to provide perception beyond normal sight. It is a popular concept in religions such as Hinduism, Taoism, and Buddhism. In Hinduism, the third eye is also known as the ajna chakra, which is the sixth of seven chakras that control the body, mind, and spirit. It is believed to be an energy center located between the eyebrows and is linked to awareness, perception, and spiritual communication. Some say that the third eye can be opened by activating the pineal gland through meditation and yoga techniques.

However, Peter becomes afraid of the storm and begins to sink, so he calls out to Jesus for help. Jesus then reaches out and takes Peter, and says, "You of little faith, why did you doubt?" .When Peter and the other disciples get back into the boat, the wind stops. The disciples then worship Jesus, saying, "You are truly God's Son!"
