THE NATURE OF MAN AND THE BASIS FOR MENTAL DEVELOPMENT

Many people seek a meaningful and fulfilling focus for their lives. For some people, for example, the focus is to raise a happy, healthy family. For others, it is to become prosperous and have a nice home. For still others, it is to have a particular career or do well at oneÕs job. For still others, it is to have many friends and perhaps a loving relationship. All of these are fine. However, this article will suggest a grander goal and focus.
I will call this focus mental or spiritual development. This may sound a bit outlandish, and it will be seen this way by some. However, it is the final destiny of all human beings, something that everyone will accomplish at one time or another, and it will provide for a long, happy life in almost all cases. This article describes this new focus for oneÕs life in more detail.
WHAT IS DEVELOPMENT?
Human beings come into the world not unlike small animals, mainly concerned with their food, warmth, love, safety and security. These are all traits that we share with higher animals. Humans, however, have far more potential than any animal. This is what distinguishes us from them, at one level. This potential, besides intelligence, is to develop the mind and the body in a particular manner. This is primarily an electrical or subtle energy phenomenon, not something that makes one look different. However, inside one is very different.
In this process, a person develops what is called the etheric body, which is nothing more than a large electrical field around the physical body. As it grows, it brings certain energy into the physical body that has a healing and nourishing effect upon the physical body. As it grows further, it extends oneÕs life, assists brain development, and has many other positive effects, some of which are discussed in other articles on this website. This is the exact meaning of development, as used in this article.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF DEVELOPING YOURSELF?
These include all the following, and more:
á Much better health and a longer life. Development leads to greater health, less disease, less infections, and better ability to absorb nutrients from our nutritionally depleted food supply. This could save your life, or at least make it much easier and much more enjoyable.
á Less disease also means less dependence upon the medical drug system of care, which is in serious disarray and quite a dangerous system to be involved with. This is not mere speculation as the statistics support the idea that modern medicine is among the most important causes of disability and death today.
á Greater understanding and ability to withstand and prosper during these changing times, especially in America and Europe. For example, living standards may well go down and comforts to which many people are accustomed may need to be reduced in order for the governments to save money and manpower.
á Opening oneself to special abilities and talents that always appear along with spiritual development of the etheric and other subtle bodies. These include mental telepathy and other abilities. These can save lives and be most useful to have at this juncture.
ARE THERE OTHER REASONS TO DEVELOPMENT YOURSELF AT THIS TIME IN HISTORY?
Yes. These include the following:
á An opportunity. The earth is at a crossroads, so to speak, in which its magnetic fields are diminishing. This causes an ÒopeningÓ in which more etheric energy is reaching the earth for the next ten years or so. As a result, it is far easier for people to develop in this way. In other words, the present time is a kind of opportunity, in other words, that is not usually the case on planet earth.
á To be of greater service. Society will need the services of many wise people. Politics is changing and opportunities are opening up fast, in America, in particular. So if one develops oneself, many leadership positions in business, politics, education and elsewhere are needing your wisdom and your strength of character.
á Real happiness of a different kind. Many people waste their lives in jobs, relationships, locations and activities that do not bring real happiness. This is often very difficult to see while you are immersed in them. Usually, one Òwakes upÓ too late to realize that you threw away good jobs and rewarding, if difficult relationships and made choices that were not the best. Developing yourself can prevent this sad occurrence that is so common on planet earth.
á Much better self esteem. This is a subtle effect, but one that is definitely true. There is something very positive and encouraging about deciding to truly care for the body and the mind through nutritional balancing rather than a hit or miss type of healing lifestyle.
á Helping those around you. A final reason for developing oneself in this manner is its effect upon all those around you. As you develop, it is as if you share your love and your wisdom with all who come in contact with you. By so doing, you unintentionally and easily heal all of those around you such as your family, your friends, your neighbors and even all who meet you on the street, at work and everywhere else. So development is a social benefit for all of society, not just for you.
Helping the earth itself. This may sound a bit unusual, but developed humanity assists the planet herself in many ways. Not only do you become a more conscious consumer, for example, polluting and contaminating the planet less, but your evolved energy actually helps uplift the planet in subtle ways.
