“For men were created exactly like the angels, to the intent that they be pure and righteous, and death which destroys everything, could not have taken hold of them” 1 Enoch Chapter 69
“Prana is the universal principle of energy or force. It is the sum total of all energy that is manifest in the universe, all the forces in nature and powers which are hidden in men and which lie everywhere around us. This prana remains in a subtle, motionless, unmanifest, undifferentiated state during the cosmic phase. When the vibration is set up, prana moves and acts upon Akasha, space, and brings forth the various forms. (Akasha, ether day 3) The macrocosm and microcosm are combinations of prana and Akasha.
All forces, all powers and prana spring from the fountain of Source. Heat, light, electricity, magnetism are manifestations of prana. It may be in either a static or a dynamic state. It is found in all forms from the highest to the lowest, from the elementary forms of plant life to the developed forms of animal life.
Whatever moves or has life is but an expression or manifestation of prana. It is prana that shines in your eyes. It is through the power of prana that the ear hears, the eye sees, the skin feels, the tongue tastes, the nose smells and the brain and the intellect perform their functions. A smile, a melody in music, the power in the emphatic words, the charm in the speech of one’s beloved are all due to prana. Whatever you behold in this sense-world, whatever moves or works or has life, is but an expression or manifestation of prana.
Prana is force, magnetism and electricity. Radio waves travel through prana. That which moves the steam engine of a train and a steamer, which causes the motion of breath in lungs, that which is the very life of this breath itself, is prana. It is prana that pumps the blood from the heart into the arteries or blood vessels. Through prana digestion, excretion and secretion take place. Prana digests the food, turns it into chyle and blood, and sends it into the brain and mind. The mind is then able to think and enquire into the nature of Source.
Prana is the link between the astral and physical body. When the slender thread-link of prana is cut, the astral body separates from the physical body. Death takes place. The prana that was working in the physical body is withdrawn into the astral body.
Supremacy of prana
Prana tattwa, the energy-principle is superior to manas tattwa, the mind-principle. Prana is present even when the mind is absent during sleep and therefore, prana plays a more vital part than the mind. Prana is the oldest, for it starts its functioning from the very moment a child is conceived, whereas the organs begin to function only when their special abodes are formed.
Through the vibrations of psychic prana, the mind is maintained and thought is produced, as are all physical abilities and psychic senses. “Prana is Source.”
