The Spiritual Soul Is Present In
Every Cell of the Human Organism
Carlos Cardoso Aveline
The action of the muscles expresses emotions. The posture of the physical body reflects thoughts and also exerts an influence upon them. The life of the cells is part of the state of the soul.
For this reason the idea of “a healthy mind in a healthy body” constitutes a central axiom in ancient philosophy as well as in modern theosophy.
Medicine is aware of the psychosomatic influence of the emotions and ideas we harbour. Good thoughts purify the soul, heal the body and produce contentment. The usual posture of a citizen’s body is associated to his usual emotion. Yoga uses geometrically significant positions of the body in order to elevate the state of the consciousness of its practitioners: the asanas are part and parcel of Raja Yoga.
The body listens to and records all that takes place in the emotional and mental planes. Yet the body also speaks, and it retransmits to the higher levels of life the testimony of what it heard.
The body is a page where all events in physical, emotional, mental and spiritual life are printed. It is a file where everything pertaining to a lifetime is recorded. From the body, on the other hand, vibrations emerge that achieve the elevated planes.
The spiritual monad is present in each cell of the organism. The energy of the cosmos gives life to every atom.
Astrology studies and reveals the daily, even hourly direct interaction between a human being and the planets in the sky, on the mental, emotional and spiritual planes. Strength, moderation and rhythm are of decisive importance in the yoga of theosophy and the art of being One with the universal Law.
