A bleak, gloomy face without a glimmer of light in it is a sure sign that the person’s solar plexus is not functioning as it should.
You, at least, who are listening to me, try to apply the methods I have given you and work with your solar plexus, otherwise it may be years before you are aware that it is there, vibrant and wakeful within you, before you feel it warming and relaxing you. If you don’t develop your solar plexus everything will be centred in your brain, and however diligently you watch the sunrise or meditate or do various exercises, you will not get any good from them. None of these things will really do you any good until your solar plexus starts to show signs of life, and you begin to feel that your consciousness has at last reached even to your bowels… Things have to be experienced in order to be understood, experienced with every fibre of one’s being.
You must realize that the solar plexus controls the majority of the functions of the physical body and, above all, that it is the solar plexus which created and which continues to nourish the brain. This is why the solar plexus feeds the brain and keeps it supplied with everything it needs. The brain is not cut off from the solar plexus, but it has not yet learned how to communicate with it, and this is why it cannot always take advantage of the support provided by the solar plexus.
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.
