Call to Duty
From the top of a mountain high
A Shaft of light I saw
Sweeping down to me through crags and draws
For as that shaft drew near
The voice of the ages loud and clear
So strong and yet, as tender as a motherís kiss
It told me this
It was the call, oh, so many ages old
That of which so many mystics have told.
If you accept my strength, you must have no fear
Even when great armies draw near.
You must not fear the airway to tread
Out in view, from far and near
The path is steep with no rail to guide,
But the powers of the Universe are always at your side.
No glory of earth can entice or compare
With the feeling of a free-born Mystic fair,
For he lives not on the narrow streets of clay
For his is the Universal Will to obey.
Man and His Universe
The old axiom "As above, so below," while old
and used in many ways, is still - and always will hold -- true as to the
relationship of this Universe to all of its subsequent parts therein, both
live and living matter and also the mineral world.
The illustration will help you to conceive the relative
form and the universal pattern of a universal atom. The atom is not only
scientifically accepted as correct as to its being one of the basic units
of matter, but also in its action in relation to other atoms, its likeness
to the Universe and the movement of worlds in our solar system. These are
atoms in the Solar Molecule. Man also is an atom in the social order expressing
Around the earth is the earthís atmosphere and its electrical
shell. This atmosphere of earth is the one that holds our air and all the
other things that we need to sustain life, so that there it is, when we
draw in our breath the giver of life in all its glory, In fact, it is not
very well understood as yet by the scientist, although the sages of long
ago know it pretty well and used it in healing for many things. The very
thing we are talking about is not well understood, that is, manís atmosphere
and its use and the way of the control of the things is his life. A real
understanding of his own atmosphere is necessary; it is so completely and
scientifically a duplicate of the solar system and also the atmosphere
of the earth.
The earthís atmosphere is also controlled by man - Man
in Mass. The hundreds of millions of men by their thinking produce such
a powerful wave of electrical vibration, and it fills the earthís atmosphere
-- which is the mass mind of earth. Thus is the filtering system built
up, so that only part of the sun and its rays can enter and reach the earth.
As you can see, it will only allow that which the filter will let pass
through to reach the earth. That which comes through will be the energy
that the people can use and need, as they are advanced to the point of
understanding in its use.
It is well here to relate man and his atmosphere to his
internal world or system, the system of the physical body. This is done
for the purpose of again saying as above, so below what he calls the organic
system of the body is also controlled by his thinking. Also the feeding
of the cell structure of his physical body -- this is fed from his electrical
structure, which is the accurate and descriptive name of what some philosophers
call by several names: vital body, psychic body, spiritual body, etc. They
have a right to call it what they desire.
We have no latitude in which to take privileges. We must
stick to the relative scientific name which is related to its functions.
It is a force matrix which holds the chemical composition of the physical
body together and also holds it in a certain form regardless of the supposed
aging of the person, or aging process. The electrical structure never changes
after the age of maturity. This understanding of the basic body of man
is a thought which is and has been scientifically proven if you look for
the proof. But like most things, if you do not want to see the proof you
wonít find it; or if you are determined to disprove it you may come close,
but none can force you to accept what you do not want to see.
The understanding of the electrical body of man is likened
to when a man wants to understand his relation to God. If he says no, then
that is it; but if he follows his inner understanding, then he will so
be convinced of his Creatorís existence. Remember we said man can create
what he wants in his life. This is true, try it out. Just toy with the
words and say, "Oh that, so many have come before me, why did they
not see it too?" Well, there was a Graham Bell, who invented the telephone.
Let us return here to the chemical cells, as they are
fed from the electrical structure, and the nature of their function is
determined through the energy fed into the cell through the nucleus of
the cell. This sets up an attractive pattern so that it will attract the
then-needed energies from the blood, which circulates through the blood
to rebuild worn out cells and thus rebuild tissue which has been torn down
in work, in play, and in thinking.
The atmosphere that man builds is and does act as a screen
for the energy from the sun (son). The electromagnetic fields of the earth
are also screened through it. Is this not a wondrous Universe -- this body
and its own electro-magnetic fields? When we look at the simplicity of
the laws that control it, there are at least a dozen or two of these, that
man clouds his mind with, which are just surplus baggage. In other words,
science has certain laws regarding matter but these are for mechanical
tests. Actually the basic Universal laws and principles that men use daily
are very, very few and these are the only ones with which we are concerned.
Now these same few are not in opposition to the scientific formulas, but
these laws are simple and allow us to understand manís personal control
of the matter in his universe, and what is going to come into it by the
use of Mental control or the product of producing certain energy patterns,
which are a part of your thinking or else you could not have produced them
in the physical world whether you are using chemistry or electro-physics.
Actually all we are saying is that there is a Universal
form in this solar system and it is actually the cell, world, or solar
It may be there is a greater God of many Solar Systems
but in this, my world, it is not important. Now I am concerned with my
personal Universe and this Solar System.
I believe that as a man of God I should be interested
in learning all that I can about our own body both physically and spiritually,
and how to take care of it, for it is a creation and gift of the Father
so that we may express His perfect creation here on earth.
These bodies and the control of them as well as the maintaining
of a healthy active life, are a part of Self Mastery and the becoming of
