There are some things so true that no amount of proof can make them more true; yet to those who do not follow the higher forms of thinking, it becomes impossible to explain or verify them.

and more harmonious self-expression in form. The old civilization consciousness passed through
the revelation of matter, then on to mind, while the New Civilization of today is passing back again through labyrinths of mind to astounding discoveries in matter. The first really new discovery in mind was directed
toward a finer understanding of the physical body and strange new psychological relationships of health and disease were discovered. 7
THE EMANATION BODY Following the trail of mind back into matter, men came upon the atomic mind of the flesh and found the body instead of a solid lump of non-intelligent matter, to be a very solar center of vibrant intelligence as well as a mighty dynamo of pulsing power. Then, following this clue still farther, they unveiled the mystical system of reproduction, regeneration and transmutation of the flesh itself, and
understood it, not from the level of a so-called disordered reasoning, but through the true action and reaction of life's finer forces. In order to come into a complete understanding of these higher laws almost every old theory about the body must be retranslated. If this emanation story is the true law of the flesh, then all that science has had to say in the past regarding the body must be reinterpreted and rearranged.
The emanation body is a flesh body emanated from the body itself built from the substance within ;
the cells of the flesh, not entirely independent of
normal food, yet growing independently, and in normal food products; sustained by the power within itself; reproducing new tissues from its own center and substance. The emanation body has power within itself to carry out all needed functions, and food is used only as fuel. The body really produces itself through psychic emanation. It throws out from its cells that which has become waste products to the cell spite of, the absence of

Living then from his own spiritual storehouse, he transcends all the laws of the ordinary flesh, and he builds for himself a new flesh body infinitely beyond the reach of the laws of the crude human flesh. Mortality has here and now put on Immortality. This body knows nothing of weariness, age, decay or death. It is one with that which is eternal.

Every particle of food taken into the body must be eliminated and thrown out through the functions of the body itself. If this is not accomplished it is thrown back into the blood current and lodged wherever it can find room in the system. All uric acid is simply decomposed food cells passing through the circulation as poison. Uremia and uremic coma is over-saturation with the poison of effete matter which should have been eliminated through the urinal system. The food body is at once our savior and our destroyer; and in order to fully understand our own mechanism we must turn our attention now to the question of food itself. 12
Real Value of Food.
The first great lesson that the New Civilization must learn is that every mouthful of food taken into the body must be thrown out of the body again.
When this is not done, disease of the body, languor of the mind and inertia of consciousness follow. The biggest obsession in the race mind, past and present, is that we live by what we eat. We do not. We live or die by just what the food we eat accomplishes in the psychical machinery of our flesh body. We can eat and die; thousands do this daily. We can "not eat," grow fat and live. Thousands are learning this new dietary. The physical body is a wonderful laboratory. The food taken into the stomach is separated into its component parts by the action of the cell intelligence within us then it is sent on its journey of nutrition. The coarser parts of the food are all eliminated through the intestinal tract. When this is not done, the history of bowel trouble tells the story. Constipation, the fountain syringe, cathartic pills, gastro. intestinal indigestion, colon-lavage all bear witness to man's stupidity. The many appendixless creatures everywhere are symbols of this lack of elimination, coupled with the skill of modern surgery. ;
THE EMANATION BODY Finer particles of food are eliminated through the Consider for a moment the world's history of kidney trouble, Bright's disease, renal calculi, gall-stones, gout, rheumatism, all glowing tributes to man's lack of understanding and Nature's inflexible laws. Nature says "Get rid of all you have taken in or it will kill you it has served its purpose; you keep it at your own risk." All the finer particles of food are dissolved and carried away through the breath as carbon-dioxide kidneys, saliva and skin.

Often a gentle electrolosis, magnetic massage or mental treatment with magnet massage will do more than all kinds of foods or medicines to awaken the normal action of the emanation cell. Man made his first appearance on this earth independent of all food save that which was emanated from his own blood current in conjunction with the maternal circulation. He will make his exit in full possession of this law, and nutrition will be a concerted action of his own cell intelligence with the higher universal intelligence, or circulation called vibration.
Fasting and Breathing The emanative law of the flesh is not an occult, mysterious, metaphysical something to be attained only by a few, but it is the divine possession of every It is not a question of attaining emanaonly a question of realizing it and being it. Emanation began when life began. It was, is and ever shall be, and the only really vital question is how one shall keep the normal emanative activity and hold the true normal balance between the emanative body and the food body. And again an important question: How shall this balance be restored once it is lost? Or how shall it be accentuated when it is dull or inert? The answer to these questions is easy and the process of balancing it is easy, but the race man will not make it easy for himself for many years to come, because it means conscious mental action and self-control, neither of which are at the present time the gift of the ordinary individual. There are two important things involved in the operation of the law of emanation. The first one of these is the breath. The emanation body is an air body. All its action and reaction is based upon the intake and outlet of breath. "It is the breath of the Almighty that giveth us life." The emanation body

and the heavier it is, the more it shuts out the life of cell and destroys its activity. With this lessening action there is less call for the oxygen of the air. The less air and activity, the more there is accumulation of waste products in the body. Inert respiratory action means non-elimination of carbon the air

THE EMANATION BODY tered round inhalation and exhalation, but higher revelation regarding all functions of the body revealed the fact that the residual air in the lungs often becomes a stagnant pool of gas, breeding inharmony in every atom of the body. The scientist swung his attention around the elimi-
nation through the kidneys and bowels, but has been forced to give way to the story of emanation through increased respiration. As a trophy for the stagnant residual air in the lungs Nature gave the individual the fetid breath, decayed teeth, pyorrhoea of the gums, biliousness and many other pet diseases which never yielded to the old ideas of treatment. The fake breathing teachers found that they could do more for a patient with a few lessons in deep
breathing than the wisest medico had ever done, and it was proved that the residual air of the lungs had to be thoroughly changed or it brought on a sort of hypnosis over the emanative cells and a poisonous gas through the tissues of the food body. Breathing was always one of the chief studies of the ancients. In the olden schools of mysteries there were departments called "The Temple of the Seven Spheres," presided over by the ancient Chaldean priests, where "renovation of bodies" was a constant operation. "Renovation" meant simply the casting off of the abnormal food body, and through scientific breathing, eating and "not eating" again establish19

In these Temples the priests lived a thousand years. These ancients were past masters in the art of emanation, which has been lost through the centuries and is just now dimly working its way to the surface of the recollecting mind. These priests built their bodies to last from one civilization to another. It was simply an instrument for use. These were "The wise men of the East," who took gifts to the Christ child.

centage of breath comes through the skin. Cover the human body with an impenetrable substance and asphyxiation is certain. Long, deep, conscious breaths in regular inhalation and exhalation aerates the blood stream and the tissues. Twenty-five per cent increase of oxygen in the blood stream will burn up all waste material and leave it like white ashes to be carried away through the eliminary channels. The secret of old age is Carbonization. The secret of youth is Oxygenation. The ancient secret of Renovation is no longer a secret. The body that is oxygenized at all times cannot grow old nor decay. A body composed largely of life cells, with its normal insulation of food cells, perfectly aerated, cannot die; it is only misdirected life energy that kills. 21
THE EMANATION BODY
FASTING The second important method for renovation is Fasting. Fasting has been the comrade of breath since reason and enlightenment led the steps of the uninitiated. Feasting is death and fasting is immor-
From whence, then, did this obsession of food and the necessity of eating fasten itself upon the race mind? The answer is plain. Man must eat, because in the food flesh he is only a higher animal and he must sustain himself in the only way he knows how. The very fact of the presence in our anatomy of the organ called the stomach establishes the fact that it must have a function, and that function is to receive food, but not food as the race man thinks today not a receptacle stuffed to dilatation, but just filled with food enough to meet the requirements for fuel in this mighty engine of flesh and blood. The lungs furnish the igniting substance, viz.: The stomach furnishes that which is to Breath. The intelligence of the cell calls ignite (the food) for their magnetic point on which to burst their subThe stomach is a receptacle for the substance. stance from which these magnets are secured.

The fine cells of the brain demand a perfectly prepared magnet and nothing can be sent from the food body which they will use unless it is substance enough to answer their need. The stomach is now, and always was, the furnace into which all kinds of food went as fuel, and the master intelligence of the cells divided it into its own chemical affinities, and deposited it in the food body for future use. We must remember that all living matter contains fine

It can be seen that they must be secured by some normal process, or the disintegration of the flesh body is certain.

THE EMANATION BODY supplement his own protoplasmic law by the substance released by the breath, it must be accomplished through the agency of the food cells. The energy for muscular work and the heat of the body comes from the destruction in the body of the carbo-hydrate foods. This is the cheapest and easiest source of all foods and forms the chief bulk of the mass of man's diet. The fats and oils are mostly carbo-hydrates; these do not contain nitrogen and cannot be used in building up new or in repairing to

The fact that some vegetables contain nitrogen is of no consequence. It is not what we eat, it is what can be used and is used in the scheme of nutrition. prolonged carbo-hydrate diet causes the system to lose its nitrogen polarity and become a non-nitrogenous flesh body. This nitrogen starvation gives rise to the peculiar pallor so often seen in those who are ignorantly reforming the diet. Carbo-hydrates alone cannot sustain life.

of the body.
The difference in the essential use of carbohydrates and protein food is that, while carbohydrates form a source of heat and energy, protein foods supply the material from which the magnets are drawn with which to make new tissues and to repair the old. It is an unchanging law of animate cells that life is dependent upon for the presence of nitrogen in the system, and without it all conditions on earth could not combine to create or sustain new normal protoplasm, and the protein magnet is demanded by certain cells of the body in order to release its nitrogenous substance. When we remember that nitrogen forms seventynine per cent per volume of the atmospheric air it is not hard to believe that, with correct instructions and breathing, we may train ourselves to live without any unnecessary amount of food. If we prefer to absorb part or all of our substance through the lungs, no one shall tell us we must receive it through the stomach. The same law will not answer for all 25
THE EMANATION BODY mankind. We are all in different stages of unfoldment, and the intensely nitrogenous individual, made so through over-stimulation of proteid diet, is no more important in the plan of evolution than is his nitrogenous-breathing brother. Dr. Cary again says: "In this strenuous age of reconstruction, while God's creative compounds are forming a new race in the morning of a new age,

In this new will need perfect bodies to correspond with

When we attempt to establish the law of emanation we cease eating and unload the waste of the body until the life cells have called for and have used up every available food magnet in the body. Then there is a great call from the body (hunger), and enough new food is eaten to satisfy this hunger, and the blood current brings the waiting cells a fresh magnet, unsaturated by carbon dioxide gas, fresh, pure, oxygenated, ready to give an intensified contact, to which every life cell in the body is able to respond, and a new body is built from this purified substance.
Fasting, with breathing, has always been a direct purification, and in order to hurry the
renovation processes, the ancient used to bleed the knowing that the blood

THE EMANATION BODY stream carried the stagnant gases of the system. Breath brought new air air unites with the mineral magnets in the body and forms new blood. Fasting simply allows the excess food cells to disintegrate, and the blood being a tissue, the food cells of the blood also become destroyed, and with breath enough to fill the whole area of circulation with oxygen, the old tissues are burned out and carried away. "Breathing and Fasting" These two forms are the two ends of the pole of immortality of the flesh. Breathing until the whole body is clean and pure like a clear pool troubled with the very winds of Heaven fasting until every particle of waste material is cast out, and the body is evolving daily with the finer ;
substance of its own secretions. Then eating sanely, sensibly, not one thing, but of everything, not as a luxury, but only as a necessity. Eating for fuel, not for feeds, and the secret of immortality in a body of youth, strength and beauty is revealed. Emanation flesh is white, roseate, firm and always young. The food flesh is dark, dull, heavy, with purple shadows in the lips, often yellow, sallow, flabby, wrinkled or puffed, and over it there comes creeping daily more and more plainly the traces of age and decay. In the emanation body man sees God in his flesh, and he makes good the statement of the ancients that as he was born the image of the earthy, he may also bear the image of the Heavenly. 27
Rules for Fasting The
rules for fasting are very simple
Eat one meal every other day for a period of ten days; then eat two meals a day, night and morning. There is no one in the world who needs three meals a day. This fast for ten days (one meal every other day) should be taken once a month for three months. At the end of three months eat just as your appetite dictates for three months then take up the emanation fast again for three months. This method will prevent the abnormal overloading of the body, and keep the emanation law uppermost. During the fast, the one meal taken every other day should be taken at noon. At this meal a mixed diet should be selected. Eat a little of everything and drink all the water you want, and with the meal, if desired. Eat slowly and fletcherize eating.

horseback do something. The only direct road to death is Inaction. Keep the body moving. The flesh that is moved must eliminate. There is tains, ride

A diet containing a liberal mixture of all the ordinary foodstuffs is the normal one; pandering, of course, now and then, to individual likes and preferences.
When the appetite has become abnormal it should be forced to obey the will. Usually what one thinks will kill him, will cure him. The normal stomach will accept any sort of food. If the stomach objects to anything, fast until hunger makes even the most obnoxious thing look good then it need not be eaten.

no time does he have a long building-up process. The life cells are emanating and building a new body all the while the old tissues are being torn away, and at the end of a year, with interrupted fasts, he can find himself living, moving in a body of flesh made entirely of emanation substance, with a perfectly normal ensheathment of food cells. Through this body he comes into possession of the transcendental powers of the flesh, and stands out as a symbol of human intelligence, with will enough to set for himself a super-human law, and through this higher understanding he brings to the world the revelations of his new kingdom of consciousness. He has conquered weariness; he has conquered disease, conquered age, and is lord of every action of his body.
Rules for Breathing There is no particular time or place for breathing. Breathe wherever and whenever it is possible to breathe. If it is possible to have choice, it will be found advisable to select the early morning, imme-
upon arising. Stand before an open window or a well-ventilated room. Exhale exhale until there is no longer a possibility of any more breath escaping. This is to empty the lungs. There is no use attempting to inhale while the body is full of exhausted air. Exhale exhale exhale pressing the ribs inward, with the hands on the outside of the chest, giving at first short gasps of breath, then prolonging the gasp until the residual air in the lungs is exhausted to its diately
long, deep inhalations, filling the lungs repeat the exhalation exercise. Do uttermost to the this five or six times; then begin the inhalation of long, deep breaths, exhaling slowly. Inhale through the nostrils and exhale through the mouth. Repeat this exercise for five minutes; then inhale to the fullest extent again then, holding the breath, breathe it out through the body, directing it up through the head, forward, backward; when it is exhausted, ;

When this is accomplished, he finds that he has new gifts, new privileges, new opportunities, not shared by the plodders around him. What are these gifts, and what are their uses? These gifts are first: Extended states of vision; true clairvoyance, not the mixed colors of ordinary clairvoyance induced by controls or astral obsessions, but a vision so clear that the Akashic records can be read like the clean, white pages of a book; while the others themselves become his mystic mirror and a glass of water a very sea of illumination. Before him, at his own will, he can spread out the whole panorama of the universe. Through the natural functions of the emanation body he becomes a true Illuminati and joined with the extended vision he has the mystic ear, which, listening, can hear above the din and surge of life the true message and register the music of the spheres.
With this vision and hearing he gains the mystic's touch of power. His presence heals. His hands carry healing and comfort in their clasp.
