When human beings oppose the laws and the forces and currents of the cosmos they are cutting themselves off, hiding behind an impenetrable barrier of their own making between them and the universe. Then the nourishing, life-giving forces flowing through the whole cosmos for the benefit of all creatures can no longer reach them to wash away their impurities and restore order, with the result that their health deteriorates. Yes, illness is simply the disorder that results when man severs his bonds with the cosmos and no longer maintains the vital relationship of mutual exchange.
Harmony is the only thing that makes it possible for human beings to live with intensity and fulfil themselves creatively. Devoting a few minutes every day to restoring harmony between yourself and the cosmos and trying to vibrate in rhythm with every creature in existence. Say, ‘I sincerely want to live in harmony with you. I love you, I love you. All blessings on you…’ This exercise sets the energies circulating again. If you are concerned about your own happiness and fulfilment you must pay attention to the question of harmony and take steps to be in harmony with the whole universe.
As I have already explained, the solar plexus is a brain, but a brain in reverse, for in the brain the grey matter is on the outside and the white matter on the inside, whereas in the solar plexus it is the opposite. The grey matter which is composed of nerve cells makes it possible to think, while the white matter, composed of nerve fibres, makes it possible to feel. Thanks to its outer layer of white matter, therefore, the solar plexus can feel everything that goes on in the body, in every single cell, and is therefore able constantly to restore order and balance.
With the development of the brain, man attained the self-awareness which enabled him to become an individual. The solar plexus, by contrast, being the seat of the subconscious, maintains man’s contact with the ocean of universal life, with the whole cosmos, and this is something the brain cannot do – at least, not yet. One day this communication will be possible, but the brain was formed too recently and is still insufficiently developed, whereas the solar plexus has existed far longer.
