Body, Soul and Spirit. Astral Travels
|Written by Samael Aun Weor|
Man is a trio of Body, Soul and Spirit. The soul is a mediator between the spirit and the body. A soul is possessed. A Spirit is. The Intimate is the Most High in us. The Intimate is the Spirit. The testament of wisdom says, "Before the false aurora appeared on Earth, those who survived the hurricane and the tempest praised the Intimate, and unto them appeared the heralds of the aurora". The soul is between the earthly man and the Intimate. The soul has an ultra-sensible and material body with which it travels through space. The body of the soul is the astral body. Therefore, the astral body has something human and something divine.
The astral body has its ultra-physiology and ultra-pathology that are intimately related with the great sympathetic nervous system and with our glands of internal secretion. The astral body is endowed with marvellous senses with which we can investigate the great mysteries of life and death.
The mind, the will and the consciousness are within the astral body.
Our disciples should learn how to come out in the astral body.
What we are teaching in this chapter is a tremendous reality. Unfortunately, the brothers of all spiritualist schools totally ignore the use and handling of the astral body.
It is painful for us to see the brothers of the different organizations being so ignorant about the use and handling of the astral body.
The brothers of the different spiritualist schools live in the astral with an asleep consciousness. When a brother enters the path, the tenebrous ones of the lunar path often attack him during his sleep. The brothers of the shadow take up the figure of the guru to lead disciples astray. We should now comprehend that it is a crime not to teach disciples the practical use and handling of the astral body. It is necessary for disciples to awaken consciousness during sleep in order for them to be able to defend themselves from tenebrous attacks.
To become conscious of the sleep process is not dangerous. We should become conscious of all of our natural functions.
