Harmony & Health, Life comes first, Part 1/7

This is the month of January, the start of the annual cycle of the SynoSphere. The theme for January is ‘Harmony’ and we will be posting extracts from two books of the Master’s lectures on the subject. Izvor Book 225, Harmony and Health and Complete Works Volume 10, Harmony. Each month during the remainder of the year we will post from the remaining themes in the SynoSphere. So, over the course of a year the posts will provide a complete overview of the Master’s teaching.

‘Life! All our future development is potentially present in the word ‘life’. As in a seed that needs only to be planted, watered and tended in order to produce fruit, a living cell already contains, potentially, all the future limbs and organs of the body. That is how the organs that we now possess first appeared, and many others will appear in the future.

As our physical body is built in the image of our astral body, our astral body in the image of our mental body, we also have five senses on the astral and mental planes. These subtle senses are not yet developed, but they are there, waiting to manifest themselves, and once they are fully formed, we shall have untold possibilities to see, hear, taste, act and move.

The only thing that matters is life, and this means that we must protect, purify and sanctify it and eliminate whatever hinders it or gets in the way of its development, because life gives us health, strength, power, intelligence and beauty. But most men and women are interested in everything but life. If it was their first priority they would find more and more possibilities to obtain the things they desire because it is that enlightened, intense, luminous life that can give them everything.

It is time to realize that your way of thinking has a direct effect on your life, on its reserves, on the very quintessence of your being, and that a wrong attitude distorts and damages everything. Human beings should be taught from their earliest childhood not to fritter away their life but to dedicate it to a sublime goal for, in that way, it becomes richer, stronger and more intense.

Life is a capital which you can invest in a bank on high so that, instead of deteriorating and being wasted, its value increases continually and, thanks to this wealth, you will have the possibility of learning and working to better purpose. Yes, you can make an omelette without breaking eggs. I know the secret of how to do it: put all your capital in a bank on high and you will become stronger because you will continually receive new elements to replace those you spend.

This is why it is so important that you should know whom you are working for and what goal you are aiming at, for it is this that determines the direction your energies will take. What matters, therefore, is to know exactly what you are spending your energies on, in what direction you are working, for your future hangs on this: you are getting either richer or poorer.’
