Ken Jos rated it did not like it May 13, A man who falls asleep each night with the definite intention in his mind of doing a certain piece of work, will assuredly go and attempt to carry out his intention as soon as he is freed from his physical body; but having done his best in connection with that particular case, he is almost certain to let the fog close round him once more, simply because he has for ages been unaccustomed to initiate a fresh line of action when functioning apart from the physical brain.
In a moment the astral body is thrown into violent agitation, and the original colors are for the time almost obscured.
An attempt is made to indicate this in our illustrations of the various vehicles appropriate to these planes, as will be seen later. How These Things Are Known. IN order to understand the formation of the soul in man there is another great factor which must be taken into account.

But into this sea of virgin matter the true Virgin Maria pours down the Holy Spirit, the Lifegiver, as He is called in the Nicene Creed; and by the action of His glorious vitality the units of matter are awakened to new powers and possibilities of attraction and repulsion, and thus the lower subdivisions of each plane come into existence.
If we now look at the band which symbolizes the vegetable kingdom we shall see that it is of full width not only in the dense physical, but also in the etheric ingisible. One thing at least we may perhaps hope that our study of inisible inner vehicles will do for us: Dull, hard brown-grey signifies selfishness, and is unfortunately one of the very commonest colors in the astral body. The Mental Body of the Average Man.
Livid grey, a most visibel and frightful hue, betokens fear. All the way through its long ages of evolution in all the previous kingdoms, it has invariably been the ensouling and energising principle – the force behind whatever forms it may have temporarily occupied.

Among such some may be found who are especially advanced in one direction, and some in another; this is an evenly-balanced man – simply a fair average of those who are at the level which I describe. But in order to do either of these things, he must first learn how they are done; that is to say, he must learn to focus his consciousness leadbeatee his astral body or in his mental body, just as it is now focussed in the physical brain.
