Chapter 9 - INSTANTANEOUS HEALING (Cont'd) - 60

PUPIL: Will you please give us a few other prototypes, and show us how they are arrived at? With still a few more examples to serve as guides, I am sure that I shall then know how to form my own prototypes for any particular thing desired or required.

MASTER: Very well; here are a few more. Let us take the head, for example, supposing that one had a belief in a violent headache.

The head is the house of the brain; and the brain is the instrument of the mind, but in no sense the mind itself. What is the purpose of the mind? It is to know, to know God, the capacity to know God!

Can a capacity to know ever really ache, or hurt, it being a formless thing? No it can not! The spiritual prototype for the head then, as I see it, is the capacity to know God.

Now for a minute let us consider the eyes. What is the purpose of the physical eye?

It is the instrument of discernment, which is a purely spiritual factor, discernment as such having no form of its own. The capacity of discernment is the spiritual prototype for the eyes, to me.

Here are a few other spiritual prototypes for you; and in these that now follow I shall not explain for you just how I arrived at the conclusion.

I shall name the particular organ, or part, of the body and the prototype for it, as I see it, and give you the benefit of thinking out for yourself just why I have chosen this particular prototype for each specific thing.

  • TEETH -Capacity to analyze and dissect God's ideas;
  • LUNGS -Capacity to know life as life;
  • HEART -Capacity of love;
  • STOMACH -Capacity of understanding;
  • LIVER -Capacity of faith;
  • KIDNEYS -Capacity of purity and cleanliness.

The spiritual prototype, please remember always, is the purpose of the thing.

Every physical thing has a purpose; consequently it has a spiritual correspondence.

By letting your thoughts dwell upon the purpose of any physical organ, or thing, you make direct and most powerful contact with the source of all things, with the first cause which projected forth from itself all concentrated things; for as Troward told me, "matter is only spirit slowed down to a point of visibility."
