Relation Between Body and Mind
Our body is composed of countless cells • The cells are the basic units which give form to the physical body.
Each cell performs different functions in the system skin cells
Parts of the cell Each cell has: • physical structure • individual mind (low level of development) • sense of self or “I” feeling, as they are alive
Kinds of cells Cells are basically of two kinds: Protozoic cells v Uni-cellular v Less developed mind Metazoic cells v Pluri-cellular v More developed mind
The entire human structure can be regarded as one metazoic organism.
The human mind • Is the collection of minds of both the protozoic and metazoic cells plus the central unit “I” feeling, or existence feeling, of the human entity. • It is a collective mind, having a relationship with all parts.
• The aura or glow of effulgence radiated from the human body is the collective effulgence of all its composite cells.
Changes in mental feelings The aura changes accordingly with can cause variations in the health of the human being. Mental feelings

2 nd Factor of Healthy Food and Vital Energy
Food provides the body with its requirements of vital energy sprout seed vital energy
Vital energy is transformed into Mechanic energy Kinetic energy Mental energy
Some foods are rich in vital energy Some foods are poor in vital energy
About mushrooms • Mushroom lives on decayed matter • Does not produce chlorophyll • Low vital energy source
