Wonders of the Human Body
According to the Laws of Chemistry and Physiology
Dr. George W. Carey, 1918
THE WONDERS OF THE HUMAN BODY
“For thou didst cover me in my mother’s womb.
I will give thanks unto thee ; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are thy works.”139th
Ps., 13 and Uth v.
human race has been asleep, and has dreamed that property and money are the
true wealth of a nation, sacrificing men, women and children to the chimerical
idea that danced in visionary splendor through their brains. The result of this
is to be seen in the uneasiness that prevails everywhere. But humanity is
waking up, slowly but surely, and beginning to realize that it, itself, is the
most precious thing on earth.
old-established statement that the individuals that make up the race are
imperfect is no more true than that a pile of lumber is imperfect, that is to
be afterward reformed, or built into a house. As it is the carpenter’s business
to take the lumber, which is perfect as material, and build the house, so it is
the legitimate work of spiritual man to take the perfect material everywhere
present and build, by the perfect law of chemistry and mathematics, the
perfected, harmonious human being, and, with this material, employ the same law
to build up society collectively.
is a well-known physiological fact that the blood is the basic material
of which the human body is continually builded. As is the blood, so is the
body; as is the body, so is the brain; as is the brain, so is the quality of
thought. As a man is builded, so thinks he.
to the views of students of modern alchemy, the Bible both the Old and the New
Testaments are symbolical writings, based primarily upon this very process of
body building. The word alchemy really means fleshology.
is derived from chem, an ancient Egyptian word, meaning flesh. The word Egypt
also means flesh, or anatomy. Alchemy, however, in its broader scope, means the
science of solar rays. Gold may be traced to the sun’s rays.
word gold means solar essence. The transmutation of gold does not mean
the process of making gold, but does mean the process of changing gold, solar
rays, into all manner of materialized forms, vegetable, mineral, etc. The
ancient alchemist studied the process of Nature in her operations from the
volatile to the fixed, the fluid to the solid, the essence to the substance, or
the abstract to the concrete, all of which may be summed up in the changing of
spirit into matter.
reality, the alchemist did not try to do anything. He simply tried to search
out nature’s processes in order that he might comprehend her marvelous operations.
To be sure, language was used that to us seems symbolical and often
contradictory, but it was not so intended, nor so at all in reality.
in symbols. If a man is in delirium, caused by alcohol in his brain-cells, we
say he has “snakes in his boots.” Of course, no one supposes that the words are
to be taken literally.
Yet, if our civilization should be wiped out, and our
literature translated after four or five thousand years, those who read our
history might be puzzled to know what was meant by “snakes in his boots.”
it has been believed by most people that the words, “transmutation of base
metals into gold,” used by alchemists, referred to making gold. But a careful
study of the Hebrew Cosmogony, and the Kabala, will reveal the fact that the
alchemist always referred to solar rays when he used the word gold.
“base metals,” they simply meant matter, or basic material.
The dissolving or
disintegration of matter, the combustion of wood or coal, seemed as wonderful
to these philosophers as the growth of wood or the formation of coal or stone.
So the transmutation of base metals into gold simply meant the process of
changing the fixed into the volatile, or the dematerialization of matter,
either by heat or chemical process.
is believed by modern students of alchemy that the books of the Old and New
Testaments are a collection of alchemical and astrological writings, dealing
entirely with the wonderful operation of aerial elements (spirit) in the human
body, so fearfully and wonderfully made. The same authority is given for the
statement, “Know ye not that your bodies are the temple of the living God” and
“Come unto Me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.”
to the method of reading the numerical value of letters by the Kabala, M and E
figure B, when united. Our B is from the Hebrew Beth, meaning a house or temple
the temple of the spiritual ego the body. Thus by coming into the realization
that the body is really the Father’s House, temple of God, the spirit secures
peace and contentment or rest.
human body is composed of perfect principles, gases, minerals, molecules, or
atoms; but these builders of flesh and bone are not always properly adjusted.
The planks or bricks used in building houses may be endlessly diversified in
arrangement, and yet be perfect material.
temple is an allegory of man’s temple the human organism. This house is built
(always being built) “without sound of saw or hammer.” The real Ego manifests
in a house, beth, church, or temple i. e., Soul-of-Man’s Temple, for the Ego or
solar (soular) plexus is the great central sun or dynamo on which the
Subconscious Mind (another name for God) operates and causes the concept of
individual consciousness. Specifically stated thus :
- The upper brain (cerebrum) - “The Most High” or Universal
Father, which furnishes substance for all functions that constitute the body.
- The Spiritual Ego (“I AM”) - resident in the cerebellum.
- The Son of God - the redeeming seed or Jesus, born monthly in the solar plexus
- Soul - the fluids of the body.
- Flesh, bone, etc. - the fluids materialized. (In a broader sense body also is
termed soul, “Every soul perished.”) It is not thinkable that every Spirit, or
Ego or “I AM” was drowned.
wonder that the seers and alchemists of old declared that “Your bodies are the
temple of the living God” and “The kingdom of Heaven is within you.” But man,
blinded by selfishness, searches here and there, scours the heavens with his
telescope, digs deep into earth, and dives into ocean’s depths, in a vain
search for the elixir of life that may be found between the soles of his feet
and the crown of his head. Really our human body is a miracle of mechanism. No
work of man can compare with it in accuracy of its process and the simplicity
of its laws.
WONDERS OF THE HUMAN BODY
At maturity, the human
skeleton contains about 165 bones, so delicately and perfectly adjusted that
science has despaired of ever imitating it. The muscles are about 500 in
number; length of alimentary canal, 32 feet; amount of blood in average adult,
30 pounds, or one-fifth the weight of the body; the heart is six inches in
length and four inches in diameter, and beats seventy times per minute, 4200
times per hour, 100,800 per day, 36,720,000 per year. At each beat, two and
one-half ounces of blood are thrown out of it, 175 ounces per minute, 656
pounds per hour, or about eight tons per day.
All the blood in the
body passes through the heart every three minutes; and during seventy years it
lifts 270,000,000 tons of blood.
The lungs contain about
one gallon of air at their usual degree of inflation. We breathe, on an
average, 1200 breaths per hour; inhale 600 gallons of air, or 24,000 gallons
The aggregate surface
of air-cells of the lungs exceed 20,000 square inches, an area nearly equal to
that of a room twelve feet square. The average weight of the brain of an adult
is three pounds, eight ounces; the average female brain, two pounds, four
ounces. The convolutions of a woman's brain cells and tissues are finer and
more delicate in fibre and mechanism, which evidently accounts for the
intuition of women. It would appear that the difference in the convolutions and
fineness of tissue in brain matter is responsible for the degrees of
consciousness called reason and intuition.
The nerves are all
connected with the brain directly, or by the spinal marrow, but nerves receive
their sustenance from the blood, and their motive power from the solar plexus
dynamo. The nerves, together with the branches and minute ramifications, probably
exceed ten millions in numbers.
The skin is composed of
three layers, and varies from one-eighth to one-quarter of an inch in
thickness. The average area of skin is estimated to be about 2000 square
inches. The atmospheric pressure, being fourteen pounds to the square inch, a
person of medium size is subject to a pressure of 40,000 pounds. Each square
inch of skin contains 3500 sweat tubes, or perspiratory pores (each of which
may be likened to a little drain tile) one-fourth of an inch in length, making
an aggregate length of the entire surface of the body 201,166 feet, or a tube
for draining the body nearly forty miles in length.
Our body takes in an
average of five and a half pounds of food and drink each day, which amounts to
one ton of solid and liquid nourishment annually, so that in seventy years a
man eats and drinks 1000 times his own weight.
There is not known in
all the realms of architecture or mechanics one little device which is not
found in the human organism. The pulley, the lever, the inclined plane, the
hinge, the "universal joint," tubes and trap-doors ; the scissors,
grind-stone, whip, arch, girders, filters, valves, bellows, pump, camera, and
Aeolian harp; and irrigation plant, telegraph and telephone systems all these
and a hundred other devices which man thinks he has invented, but which have
only been telegraphed to the brain from the Solar Plexus (cosmic centre) and
crudely copied or manifested on the objective canvas.
No arch ever made by
man is as perfect as the arch formed by the upper ends of the two legs and the
pelvis to support the weight of the trunk. No palace or cathedral ever built
has been provided with such a perfect system of arches and girders.
No waterway on earth is
so complete, so commodious, or so populous as that wonderful river of life, the
"Stream of Blood." The violin, the trumpet, the harp, the grand
organ, and all the other musical instruments, are mere counterfeits of the
Man has tried in vain to duplicate the hinges
of knee, elbow, fingers and toes, although they are a part of his own body.
Another marvel of the human body is the selfregulation process by which nature
keeps the temperature in health at 98 degrees. Whether in India, with the
temperature at 130 degrees, or in the arctic regions, where the records show
120 degrees below the freezing point, the temperature of the body remains the
same, practically steady at 98 degrees, despite the extreme to which it is
It was said that
"all roads lead to Rome." Modern science has discovered that all roads
of real knowledge lead to the human body. The human body is an epitome of the
universe; and when man turns the mighty searchings of reason and investigation
within that he has so long used without the New Heaven and Earth will appear.
While it is true that
flesh is made by a precipitation of blood, it is not true that blood is made
from food. The inorganic or cell-salts contained in food are set free by the
process of combustion or digestion, and carried into the circulation through the
delicate absorbent tubes of the mucous membrance of stomach and intestines.
Air, or Spirit, breathed into the lungs, enters the arteries (air carriers) and
chemically unites with the mineral base, and by a wonderful transformation
creates flesh, bone, hair, nails, and all the fluids of the body.
On the rock (Peter or
Petra, meaning stone) of the mineral salts is the human structure built, and
the grave, stomach, or hell shall not prevail against it. The minerals in the body do not disintegrate or rot in the grave.
The fats, albumen,
fibrine, etc., that compose the organic part of food, are burned up in the
process of digestion and transposed into energy or force to run the human
battery. Blood is made from air ; thus all nations that dwell on earth are of
one blood, for all breathe one air. The best food is the food that burns up
quickest and easiest; that is, with the least friction in ths human furnace.
The sexual functions of
man and woman ; the holy operation of creative energy manifested in male and
female ; the formation of life germs in ovum and sex fluids; the Divine
Procedure of the "word made flesh" and the mysteries of conception
and birth are the despair of science.
"Know ye not that
your bodies are the temple of the living God?" for "God breathed into
man the breath of life."
In the words of
Epictitus, "Unhappy man, thou bearest a god about with thee, and knowest
Walt Whitman sings :
"I loaf and invite my soul; I lean and loaf at my ease, observing a spear
of summer grass. Clear and sweet is my soul, and clear and sweet is all that is
not my soul."
"Welcome every organ and attribute of me,
and of any man hearty and clean, not an inch, not a particle of an inch, is
vile, and none shall be less familiar than the rest."
"Divine am I,
inside and out, and I make holy whatever I touch or am touched from."
"I say no man has
ever yet been half devout enough; none has ever yet adored or worshipped half
enough ; none has begun to think how divine he himself is, and how certain the
The vagus nerve, so
named because of its wandering (vagrant) branches, is the greatest marvel of
the human organism. Grief depresses the circulation, through the vagus, a
condition of malnutrition follows, and tuberculosis, often of the hasty type,
The roots of the vagus
nerve are in the medulla oblongata, at the base of the small brain or
cerebellum, and explains why death follows the severing of the medulla. It
controls the heart action, and if a drug such as aconite be administered, even
in small doses, its effect upon this nerve is shown in slowing the action of
the heart and decreasing the blood pressure. In larger doses it paralyzes the
ends of the vagus in the heart, so that the pulse becomes suddenly very rapid
and at the same time irregular. Branches of the vagus nerve reach the heart,
lungs, stomach, liver and kidneys.
Worry brings on kidney
disease, but it is the vagus nerve, and especially that branch running to the
kidneys which under undue excitement or worry, or strain, brings about the
paralysis of the kidneys in the performance of their functions.
When we say that a
man's heart sinks within him for fear or apprehension, it is shown by the
effect of this nerve upon the heart action. If his heart beats high with hopes,
or he sighs for relief, it is the vagus nerve that has conducted the mental
state to the heart and accelerated its action or caused that spasmodic action
of the lungs which we call a sigh.
The nerves of the human
body constitute the "Tree of Life," with its leaves of healing. The
flowing waters of the Rivers of Life are the veins and arteries through which
sweep the red, magnetic currents of Love of Spirit made visible.

Behold the divine
telegraph system, the million nerve wires running throughout the wondrous
temple, the temple not made with hands, the temple made u without sound of saw
or hammer." View the Central Sun of the human system the Solar Plexus
vibrating life abundantly.
Around this dynamo of
God, you may see the Beasts that worship before the Throne day and night
saying, "Holy, holy, art Thou, Lord God Almighty." The Beasts are the
twelve plexuses of nerve centers, telegraph stations, like unto the twelve
zodiacal signs that join hands in a fraternal circle across the gulf of space.
Aviation, liquified air, deep breathing for
physical development and the healing of divers diseases rule the day. In every
brain there are dormant cells, waiting for the "coming" of the
bridegroom, the vibration of the air age (the Christ) that will resurrect them.
Everywhere we have
evidence of the awakening of dormant brain cells. Much, if not all, of
spiritual phenomena, multiple personality, mental telepathy, and kindred
manifestations, are explainable upon the hypothesis of the possibility of
awakening and bringing into use of dormant brain cells.
The eye is hardly less
wonderful, being a perfect photographer's camera. The retina is the dry plate
on which are focused all objects by means of the crystalline lens. The cavity
behind this lens is the shutter. The eyelid is the drop shuttle. The draping of
the optical dark room is the only black membrane in the entire body. This
miniature camera is self-focusing, self-loading and self-developing, and takes
millions of pictures every day in colors and enlarged to life size.
The ear is a colossal
mystery, and the phenomenon of sound is a secret only recorded in the Holy of
Holies of the Infinite Mind. And what is mind? We know absolutely nothing about
it. Some believe that mind is the product of the chemical operation of matter,
viz. : the atoms or materials that compose the human body. These persons contend
that all electrons are particles of pure Intelligence and know what to do.
Others hold to the theory that universal Mind (whatever it may be) forms a body
from some material, they know not what, and then plays upon it or operates
Visions of beauty

From the fourth
dimension of space ;
And on through
the universe boundless,
Our thoughts go,

Imagination, And others call it God !
We wonder and adore in
the presence of that pulsing orb, the heart. Tons of the water of life made red
by the Chemistry of Love sweep through this central throne every day, and flow
on to enrich the Edenic Garden until its waste places shall bloom and blossom
as the rose.
Take my hand and go
with me to the home of the Soul that wonderful brain. Can you count the
whirling, electric, vibrating cells ? No, not until you can count the sand
grain on the ocean's shore. These rainbow-hued cells are the keys that the
fingers of the soul strike to play its part in the Symphony of the Spheres.
At last we have seen
the "Travail of the Soul and are satisfied."
No more temples of the
Magi now, but instead the Temple of the Ego, the glorious human Beth. At least
we have found the true church of God, the human body. In this body, or church,
spirit operates like some wizard chemist or electrician. No more searching
through India's jungles or scaling the Himalayan heights in search for a master
a mahatma or ancient priest dwelling in some mysterious cave where occult rites
and ceremonies are supposed to reveal the wisdom of the past. But instead, you
have found the Kingdom of the Real within the Temple that needs no outer Sun by
day nor Moon nor Stars by night to lighten it. And then the enraptured Soul
becomes conscious that the stone has been rolled away from the door of material
concept where it has slept, and it now hears the voice of the Father within
saying, "Let there be light!" and feels the freedom that comes with
knowing that Being is one.
And now, man, the Ego,
also realizes the meaning of the “Day of Judgment." It realizes
that Judgment means understanding, hence the ability to judge. Man then judges
correctly, for he sees the Wisdom of Infinite Life in all men, in all things,
all events, and all environments. Thus does the new birth take place, and the
Kingdom of Harmony reigns now. Man must realize, however, that he is the
creator or builder of his own body, and that he is responsible for every moment
of its building, and every hour of its care. He alone can select and put
together the materials provided by the universe for its construction. Man has
been able to scale the heavens, to measure the distances between the stars and
planetary bodies, and to analyze the component parts of suns and worlds, yet he
cannot eat without making himself ill ; he can foretell eclipses and tides for
years in advance, but cannot look far enough ahead in his own affairs to say
when he may be brought down with la grippe, or to calculate accurately the end
of any bodily ill that may afflict him. When he finds out what he really is,
and how much he has always had to do in the making of himself what he is, he
will be ready to grasp some idea of the wonderful possibilities of every human soul
and body, and will know how completely and entirely is every man his own
savior. Just so long as he denies his own powers, and looks outside of himself
for salvation from present or future ills, he is indeed a lost creature. If the
race is to be redeemed, it must come as the result of thought followed by
action. If the race is to think differently than at present, it must have new
bodies with new brains.
Man must be born again.
know that our bodies are completely made over every year, by the throwing off
of worn-out cells and the formation of new ones, that is going on every minute.
Nature will take care of the making-over process, but we are responsible for
the plan of reconstruction. Man must learn to run the machinery of his body with
the same mathematical accuracy as he now displays in control of an engine or
automobile, before he can lay claim to his divine heritage and proclaim himself
master of his own.
The law of life is not
a separate agent working independently of mankind and separate from individual
life. Man himself is a phase of the great law in operation. When he once fully
awakens to the universal co-operation of the attributes and thoughts through
which the great dynamis operates or proceeds, he the Ego one of the expressions
of infinity, will be enabled to free himself from the seeming environments of
matter, and thus realizing his power, will assert his dominion over all he has
been an agent in creating. And he has indeed assisted in creating manifesting
all that is. Being a thought, an outbreathing of universal spirit, he is
co-eternal with it.
In material concept, we
do not begin to realize the extent of our wisdom. When we awaken to spirit,
consciousness knowledge that we are egos that have bodies or temples, and not
bodies that have souls, or spirits, we see the object or reason of all symbols
or manifestation, and begin to realize our own power over all created things.
And in this Aquarian age, great changes in
nature's laws will be speedily brought to pass, and great changes in the
affairs of humanity will result. The laws of vibration will be mastered, and
through their operation material manifestations will be shaped and moulded to
man's will. It is only a matter of time when all the necessities of life will be
produced directly from the elements of the air.
It is well known by
chemists that all manner of fruits, grains and vegetables are produced directly
from the elements in air, and not from soil. The earth, of course, serves as a
negative pole and furnishes the mineral salts of lime, magnesium, iron,
potassium, sodium and silica, which act as carriers of water, oil, fibrin,
sugar,etc., and thus build up the plant; but oil, sugar, albumin, etc., are
formed by a precipitation or condensation of principles in air, and not from
soil. This is a fact abundantly proved. Mr. Berthelot, a scientist of France,
Tesla, the Austrian wizard, and our own Edison have long held that food can be
produced by a synthetic process from its elements artificially.
Some six or seven extracts,
as well as coloring material, are now being manufactured in this manner. Madder
is made almost exclusively by this process now.
Sugar has recently been
made in the laboratory from glycerin, which Professor Berthelot first made
direct from synthetic alcohol. Commerce has now taken up the question; and an
invention has been patented by which sugar is to be made upon a commercial
scale, from two gases, at something like 1 cent per pound. M. Berthelot
declares he has not the slightest doubt that sugar will eventually be
manufactured on a large scale synthetically, and that the culture of sugar cane
and beet root will be abandoned, because they have ceased to pay.
The chemical advantages
promised by M. Berthelot to future generations are marvelous. He cites the case
of alzarin, a compound whose synthetic manufacture by chemists has destroyed a
great agricultural industry. It is the essential commercial principle of the
madder root, which was once used in dyeing. The chemists have now succeeded in
making pure indigo direct from its elements, and it will soon be a commercial
product. Then the indigo fields, like the madder fields, will be abandoned,
industrial laboratories having usurped their place.
Biochemists long ago
advanced the theory that animal tissue is formed from the air inhaled, and not
from food. The food, of course, serves its purpose ; it acts as the negative
pole, as does the earth to plant and vegetable life, and also furnishes the
inorganic salts, the workers that carry on the chemistry of life, setting free
magnetism, heat and electric forces by disintegration and fermentation of the
organic portions of the food.
But air, in passing
through the various avenues and complex structure of the human organism,
changes, condenses, solidifies, until it is finally deposited as flesh and
bone. From this established scientific truth, it appears that, by constructing
a set of tubes, pumps, etc., resembling the circulatory system, as well as the
lung cells of the human mechanism, which is a chemical laboratory, where the
chemistry of spirit is ever at work, changing the one essence of spirit
substance to blood, flesh and bone, air may be changed into an albuminous
pabulum, which may be again changed into the special kind of food required by
adding the proper flavor, which may also be produced direct from the air.
There does not seem to
be any reason why this substance, the basis of all food or vegetable growth,
cannot, by proper process, be made into material for clothing. Wool, cotton,
flax, silks, etc., are all produced from the universal elements through the
slow, laborious and costly process of animal or vegetable growth. Why not
produce them direct?
Those who believe in a
time of peace on earth, a millennial reign, certainly do not think that our present
mode of producing food will continue during that age. Slaughter of animals, and
fruit, grain or vegetable raising leave small time for men and women to enjoy a
condition foretold by all the seers and prophets. But under the new way of
producing food and clothing, the millennium is possible.
And thus will the
problem of subsistence be solved. No more monopoly of nature's bounties. An
exchange of service will be the coin of the world instead of certain metals
difficult to obtain.
A realization of this
vision, or theory, that will for awhile be called visionary by most people,
will mean Eden restored. The Earth will be allowed to return to its natural
state. We will cease to eat animals birds and fishes. Many people have wondered
why, during the last few years fruit pests have multiplied so alarmingly, and
why cows are almost universally diseased and so much attention given to meat,
milk, and butter products by Boards of Health, etc. There is surely a reason.
The One Life, Supreme Intelligence, or Divine Wisdom, that holds the worlds of
space in their appointed orbits, surely knows all about the affairs of earth.
When a new dispensation is about to be ushered in, old things begin to pass away.
All labor, preparing
food and clothing, as now carried on, will cease, and the people, in
governmental or collective capacity, will manufacture and distribute all manner
of food and clothing free. Machinery for the production of everything necessary
for man's material wants will be simple and easily manipulated. One-twentieth
of the able-bodied population, working one or two hours a day, and shifting
every week, or day, for that matter, with others, will produce an abundant
supply. Neither droughts nor floods nor winter's snow can affect the supply. It
can be made in Klondyke or the Tropics. Garments may be worn for a few days and
then burned, and laundry work cease. Cooking will be reduced to a minimum. No
preparing vegetables, fruit or cracking nuts; no making butter, or preserving
meats. Men will not have to devote their lives to the endless grind of food
production, nor women to cooking, dish-washing, sewing, and laundry-work.
Garments of beautiful design and finest texture will be made by machines
invented for the purpose, ready for wear.
A dream, you say?
I cannot admit that in the fact of the indisputable evidence already produced:
but what if it were, at present, but the dream it may appear to the one who
hears of its methods of operation for the first time? Do dreams ever come true?
Yea, verily? All concrete facts are materialized dreams.
An Egyptian King
dreamed, and the Pyramids of Cheops mass and miracle his vision. The Pyramids
are encyclopedic of physical science and astral lore. The science of numbers,
weights, measures, geometry astronomy, astrology, and all the deeper mysteries
of the human body and soul are embodied in these incomparable monuments.
A dream of an ancient alchemist solidified in
stone, and the awful sphinx sat down in Egypt's sand to gaze into eternity.
Columbus dreamed, and a
white-sailed ship turned its prow west and west. On unchartered seas, with an
eternity of water ahead, he remembered his dream, and answered "Sail
on!" to the discouraged mate, until he landed on the unknown shores of a most
wonderful new world.
Michael Angelo dreamed
a thousand dreams and sleeping marble awoke and smiled. Hudson and Fulton
dreamed, and steamboats "run over and under the seas."
The Pilgrim Fathers
dreamed and America, the "marvel of nations" banners the skies with the
stars and stripes. Marcus Whitman and Lewis and Clarke dreamed long and hard
and the bones of oxen and men and women and babies made a bridge over the
desert sands and the mountain gorges to the shores of the Sundown Sea, and now
the Pullman cars come safely over. Morse and Marconi and Edison dreamed strange
wild dreams and concentrated intelligence springs from carbon-crucible and says
to earth's boundaries, "Lo; here am I."

A musician dreamed a
sweet, harmonious dream, and forth from a throat of brass and discs of carbon
directed by a million tiny fingers of steel, came the entrancing notes that had
run riot through the singer's brain.
So let us dream on, men
and women, of the day of rest that is already dawning in the heavens. No wonder
that Paul said: "Now, brethren, are we the Sons of God, but it doth not
yet appear what we shall be as such. The morning light of that glad day now
purples the mountains of faith and hope with its rays of glory.
And when Man is once
fully alive to his own heritage, realizing the wonders and possibilities of his
own body, and to provide for its needs, he will assert the divine right within
him to be an Ego, a soul, in command of its own temple, and the environments of
that temple, and will rejoice in the revealed truth of his own divinity that
alone can make him free.
