Cherubim What About Bob?
Received by Gerdean.
Bob: "I understand there is a question. What is the question?"
Student: "Last week you were talking about the electrochemical system and you said, having identified it, it then behooves you to have an appreciation of it such that you know how to take it in hand, so that it stays balanced. The question is in response to what you said. It is: I'd be very interested in the "how" of this, how can we understand our "Electro-Chemical Make-Up"? I think the enquirer wants to know how we can do something about it, once we know about it."
Bob: "Lets make sure we have an understanding of what the electrochemical system is, first off. It is a type of life form. Its a pattern that is one of the basic building blocks of existence. The electrochemical system is what your mortal life is based on. When you discount the God Fragment, the electrochemical system is life as it is inducted into you by the spirit. It is Life with its senses, and animation, and all that physical which has and does contribute to your consciousness of being. How can you identify it?
"There was a motion picture about a group of individuals who became so tiny they were able to travel on a raft throughout the physical system of a human being. [Editors Note: "Fantastic Voyage"] The idea of being that intimately familiar with the inner workings of your body is a way to acknowledge and familiarize yourself with at least one large part of your electrochemical system - in particular, the way it responds to stimuli from electrical currents as well as chemical composition. Thus, there are three fields of thought we are going to braid together in response to this inquiry. Are you willing to go with me into this study?
"In your minds eye, go into your inner life and prepare to set sail. Put your few paltry possessions in a pack and put them and yourself on a raft and well paddle downstream. You might take the route through the lungs. As you inhale, you feel yourself push off from the shore, and you gently feel yourself being whooshed down into the chest. You can feel the sides of the cavernous lungs as if they were walls on either side of you. Carlsbad Caverns, they are, you see, for they are wide, dark, and haunting, but blood red and glistening with light from hidden sources, perhaps from the Source of Life Itself.
"Breathe and see the sides of your lungs tremble as they absorb those nutrients that are inhaled, and enter into the experience. With the breath of life, enter now into the blood stream, which will take this air in and through the body, beginning from the lungs, now out into the rivers and streams of your vessels and through your muscles. Follow your muscles; go down through your muscles and feel them. Travel through them. Can you pass, or is there a knot? Is there a knot in your muscle? Is the knot from overwork? Have you been exercising? Do they feel taut to the touch? Is there elasticity there? Is the color good? Do they feel well? Can they hold you up and do what you need them to do for you? What are you doing for your muscles, so that they can in turn do for you when your mind bids them respond to your minds commands?
"Well, there you are; you are in your body. You can travel through it; you can visit your bowels; you can visit your gastrointestinal system; you can visit your heart; your lungs; even your head. Where am I hurting? How does that work? Why, when I pull this, does that act that way? Whats behind this door? Whats under that flap? When you are able to travel through your body without losing your way, you know it well enough to master it.
"By this method, now, you are able to go into every fiber of your body, every aspect of your physical being. You are able to go into your aching places and ask what the problem is. You are able to learn to heal your errors of a physical nature. You will be able to heal your infirmities. I have not set these words into motion for the purpose of delivering false hope. I have spoken those words to those of you who feel capable of becoming master over all you purvey, your body being a part of that domain. Giving yourself dominion over yourself gives you the credibility of your own authority, for no one can tell you what to do -- No one can tell you what to do but you. -- and allow it to be from your own personal integrity.
"But that is quite a study. This is not one of those lessons you accomplish in a 15-minute meditation session. In the meanwhile, you do not want to be without cognizance of the body, for when you lose cognizance of your body, it betrays you. Why is that? That is because it seeks self-gratification. It knows nothing of concern for others. It knows nothing of compassion. It has no concern even for hatred. It has only its own interests at heart. It does not have free will. It wants only to survive."
Student: "That sounds like a newborn baby."
Bob: "Thats a good analogy. And like an infant, the body will tell you what it needs, if you listen. It is not that difficult! Just do remember to take time for Stillness, for this is something you can do when you visit Stillness. Make it a practice to be able to move through the universe of your body without losing your way, and then you are free to lift off, to other Ports of Call." Part 1 of 3.
