This vital body we have given a
number of names to. One of my favorites was the electrical structure. Another is
the spiritual body and, of course, the one we have just used-- vital body. Each
of these terms describes the nature of certain things about this body. It is the
vital body because of the energy and vitality that is sent through it into the
physical structure. It is the spiritual body because much of the higher
frequency - activated spiritual forces - feed this body.
It is the electrical body because of its energy and the energy that comes
through it and the fact that it is invisible the same as electricity to the
physical eye, but yet has a distinct structure which determines the physical
Certain scientists formulate quite
lengthy investigations of the nature of the radiation of this body of the human
body. The inventor of the new term "Bio-radioactivity" called it this
because the human body contains an average of 40 grains of Potassium, causing
the emitting of some 80,000 body particles per second, so they claim, and this
radiation of particles of course contains electrons moving with considerable
high velocity more than 100,000 miles per second.
It is at this point that I ask a
question: I wonder, are we talking about a fourth dimension? Possibly.
These tiny body particles go down
through all parts of our body at this tremendous speed but of course the length
of their flight is all but infinitesimal because the spaces between-- presumed
to be -- solid objects is very short. Such is the component parts of tissue and
The occasion of every encounter of
encountered object of this flight of body particles incidentally gives rise to a
minute flash which proclaims the formation of an x-ray or, one might say,
package of x-rays.
Most of their experiments on the
physical body that study with nerves in connection with electrical impulses
which travel over them have been made by the aid of galvanic currents of
considerable potential in comparison with the actual electrical potential of the
Both the current and the action of
these currents are entirely different. We learn that every electrical current
will produce a stimulus along the nerve trunk and will produce certain muscular
contractions or reactions, which of course are very incomplete and are entirely
unlike what takes place in the human organism during life. It is not a smooth
Let us have a clearer view of this
complex action both chemically and thermo action and its radiation. The
metabolic reaction also comes into this field. We must make into consideration
the electrolysis and electro-chemical action. This, of course, in the final
analysis forms the fundamental factors the presence, quantities, and kinds of
electricity which perform all of the changes.
It is a fact that one of the great
forces in the human body is what is now called nerve energy. Its source is in
the vital force of life. Science has recently tried to rename this energy and
now call it electrical nerve energy because it is found to be vibratory in
nature like electricity.
It is entirely foolish to think
that every energy that is vibratory is electrical simply because energy is
vibratory. Nerve energy is a wonderful force vibrating from place to place just
as an electrical wire is used in a building to convey the current or power from
one place to another -- so do the nerves conduct this energy.
There are certain spots in the
body where electrical or vibratory nerve energy manifests its strength. The
energy flows hard and passes or escapes at what might be called the terminals of
the nerve trunks.
We can find this at the two
principle nerve terminals of the body -- the hands and the head. In fact the
tips of the fingers have been long used by the mystics as terminal points of
Adaptation in evolution
Water, Exercise, and Breathing
The ability to comprehend, reason,
and think. Thinking of man in the past has been unconscious and unguarded.
Those in the tropics developed
dark skin. Those in the woods grew taller and stronger.
Those living on vegetables grew
differently from those who ate meat alone.
Man's body changed in accordance
with his use of feet, hands, and limbs.
Man physically is a water animal,
conceived and born in water, and has a natural liking for water.
His admiration for mountainous
country is a subconscious remembrance of the necessity to seek protection and
hunt in them.
Man is essentially a water and air
creature - water adapting to air. This should be remembered in connection with
healing or analyzing man's health.
Man is renewing his every cell, as
well as the whole skin, hour by hour. (50,000,000 explosions inside the human
He throws off water and
perspiration through skin, urine, and breath.
Water is the main essential
element of man in health. (In some things use psychic force in healing.)
Exercise is needed for balance. It
relaxes the physical and lets the spiritual express itself, regulates glandular
The three phases of elimination
are needed for kidneys, bladder and bowel treatment. (Dissolved tissue thrown
off through bowel tract. Triangle of elimination of body.)
We question, and through the
question we give a guidance rule. Why have we invented so many diseases, as most
all, in fact all, can be traced to faulty thinking?
It affects the flow of spirit.
It affects the cosmic body. Ethereal
It affects the electrical structure, the
spiritual body itself.
God took the
body out of which He built up man from those things, which He created from
nothingness into something. That mass was the extract of all creatures in heaven
and earth, just as if one should extract the soul or spirit, and should take
that spirit or that body.
man consists of flesh and blood, and besides that of a soul, which is the man,
much more subtle than the former. In this manner, from all creatures, all
elements, all stars in heaven and earth, all properties, essences, and natures,
that was extracted which was most subtle and most excellent in all, and this was
united into one mass. From this mass man was afterwards made.
is now a microcosm or a little world, because he is an extract from all the
stars and planets of the whole firmament, from the earth and the elements; and
so he is their quintessence. The four elements are the universal world, and from
these man is constituted. In number, therefore, he is fifth, that is fifth or
quintessence, beyond the four elements out of which he has been extracted as a
the macrocosm and the microcosm this difference occurs, that the form, image,
species, and substance of man are diverse therefrom. In man the earth is the
flesh, the water is blood, fire is the heat thereof, and air is the balsam.
These properties have not been changed, but only the substance of the body. So
man is man, not a world, yet made from the world, made in the likeness, not of
the world but of God, Yet man comprises in himself all the qualities of the
Scripture rightly says we are dust and ashes, and into ashes we shall return;
that is, although man, indeed is made in the image of God, and has flesh and
blood, and is not like the world, but more than the world, still, nevertheless,
he is earth and dust and ashes. And he should lay this well to heart lest from
his figure he should suffer himself to be led astray; but he should think what
he has been, what he now is, and what hereafter he shall be.
not limited to the inorganic, however, since it manifests in the organic as
well. But what differentiates the inorganic from the organic matter and how does
this matter manifest?
REALITY OF THE SOUL
great deal of research it is plainly seen that inorganic matter is lifeless;
that is, it cannot assimilate, grow, and reproduce itself. On the other hand,
the organic is the same matter, either in simple or complex combinations,
infused with the force of life, i.e., animal and vegetable -- and this matter
continually assimilates, grows, and reproduces itself.
words, the mass of one is increased by external action almost entirely, while
the other assimilates matter within and grows or evolves externally from the
single cell to the complex organism of the human body.
CANNOT MAKE MATTER AND LIFE CANNOT MAKE LIFE, for MATTER EXISTS AND LIFE EXISTS.
Life utilizes matter in making the proper vehicles for itself, but it never uses
crystals in body building if it can avoid them. Organic matter, which is
constructed and used by the force of life, follows a definite law, which is
based upon the point and curve constituting the center and circumference of a
circle. THUS MATTER MANIFEST ACCORDING TO THE TRIANGLE, AND LIFE ACCORDING TO
THE IDEAL OF THE CIRCLE.
remember one thing Brothers -- that this was working that way -- that is the
spiritual body functioned the same way -- 20,000 years ago; 10,000 years ago
5,000 years ago. And when we think of it in this connotation and from the
aforegoing lesson, I wonder if we adore our Creator enough?
