Our life, happiness, and health have the potential to be perfect and infinite, and are largely determined by our level of oneness with God, which relates to the purity and strength of our minds, hearts, energy bodies, and auras.

God is perfect and infinite life, happiness, and health. A uniting, harmonizing, loving, healing, positive, balancing, natural, pure, God-united being is free from and immune to problems, whose root cause is forgetting, straying from, and separating from God and God's ways, and whose ultimate solution is remembering, returning to, and reuniting with God and God's ways.

Therefore, oneness, unity, harmony, synergy, peace, love, freedom, life, happiness, and health have the potential to be perfect and infinite. The more we receive and give uniting, harmonious, love-based, healing, positive, constructive, natural, clean energy, the more our life, happiness, and health improves. The more we receive and give dirty, unnatural, destructive, negative, harmful, fear-based, dissonant, divisive energy, the more our life, happiness, and health worsens.

Our life, happiness, and health are largely determined by the level of our oneness with God, which determines the condition of our spiritual, mental, and emotional energy bodies, which are related to our auras, and affect the condition of our physical bodies.

The fundamental qualities of oneness, life, happiness, and health, are cleanliness and nourishment, beauty and strength, balancing the two being the key, just as in the balanced state of homeostasis.

Humans, and living beings in general, are part of nature, and very much like fruits. The healthiest, most attractive fruits are the ones that are most united with source energy, fresh, and both crisp, i.e. cleansing, and flavorful, i.e. nourishing. This applies to humans too. You can also compare humans to plants such as trees, and more.

Oneness, in both the ecosystem and individual, is the solution that creates life, happiness, and health. Just as health is a state of harmony (oneness), illness is a state of disharmony, with different illnesses reflecting different kinds of disharmony, for example cancer seems to relate to malignancy, diabetes to overindulgence, and heart disease to stress. Our state is strongly influenced by the energies we connect with, the surrounding environment and culture and those who determine it, this relates to the macrocosm-microcosm principle, the maxim “as above, so below”, and the concept of original sin. The concept of group culture too relates to shared energies. Also, inheritance of predispositions towards certain illnesses can be understood in terms of not only unmodifiable genes, but also modifiable energies, beliefs, perspectives, behavioral patterns, and lifestyles, which affect gene expression as shown in epigenetics.

Intuition

 



Intuition is our most trustworthy, direct connection to God, oneness, Truth, life, happiness, and health. Ultimately it's the effect a choice has on our spirit and life energy which is felt through intuition that tells us whether it's beneficial or not. Helpful thoughts, words, and actions create a feeling of wellbeing, expansion, and empowerment, while harmful thoughts, words, and actions create a feeling of misery, contraction, and disempowerment, the same goes for true vs. false thoughts, words, and actions, this is the power of intuition at work. The one and only thing for us ever to do is follow our intuition. The best advice in life is to follow your intuition.


Meditation

 



Meditation is an exercise that connects us with our intuition, grows and strengthens the spirit, mind, and emotions, and is the heart of all spiritual practices. Yet doing it effectively is challenging. The key to meditating effectively is lowering your amplitude (creating peace) and raising your frequency (creating love), limitlessly.

Here are some helpful thoughts for meditation, what can be helpful is having the words in front of you and saying them aloud:

God
Oneness
Truth
The present
The unknown
Zero  Infinity
Who is?  God is
Receiving  Giving
Gratitude  Love
Thank you  I love you
Peace  Love
Freedom  Happiness
Surrender  Devotion
Perfectly  Infinitely
For all  Unconditionally
Cheer, fun, happiness, joy

Combining this with other spiritual tools such as concentrating on the breath, sacred geometric forms such as the ones throughout this site, light art such as the images linked to in the "Evidence of Heavens, Higher-Dimensional Light Realities" section on the Purpose of Life page, high frequency sound, crystals, incense, candles, and essential oils creates an extremely powerful meditation and healing exercise.


Macrocosm and Microcosm, the Spiritual Planes/Bodies and Chakras, Heaven and Hell

Macrocosm and Microcosm


The connection between the organization of the universe and the organization of the individual is the reason for the macrocosm-microcosm principle commonly found in esoteric and ancient spiritual philosophies, which says that the macrocosmic universe and microcosmic individual reflect each other on a spiritual level:

"Everything that is outside in space is also within us. Today man does not yet recognise the complete harmony which exists between the mysterious forces at work in himself, and the forces active outside in the macrocosm"
- Wonders of the World: Lecture 3 by Rudolf Steiner

Organization by Lightness, Gravitational Differentiation

1. These rows are estimates. The main idea is that the entries are organized by lightness, the innermost, lowest amplitude, highest frequency, freest, lightest, finest, most formless, and subtlest entries are closest to God and highest (the higher, inner planes/bodies are often called the "subtle" planes/bodies, and the lower, external planes/bodies the "gross" planes/bodies). This organization accords with the concept of gravitational differentiation, which says that lighter portions of macroscopic structures naturally rise to the top, while denser portions sink to the bottom. The principles of organization by lightness and gravitational differentiation are the reasons for the polarity between spirit and matter.


"The soul is then only connected with the finer bodies (the etheric body and the astral body), which are beyond the scope of physical sense observation."

- Knowledge of the Higher Worlds and Its Attainment by Rudolf Steiner


"All existence is spirit. Just as ice is water, so matter is also spirit. Mineral, vegetable, animal or human – all are a condensed form of spirit."
True Knowledge of the Christ by Rudolf Steiner

-
 
2. Different sources categorize these planes differently, the main idea is that just as we're composed of spirit, mind, and body and have auras, we have spiritual, mental, and emotional energy bodies. Spirit is the highest, innermost, lowest amplitude, highest frequency, freest, lightest, finest, most formless, and subtlest energy level, and underlies thought, which underlies emotion, which underlies physicality.

3. For more information, see the "The Human Body" section below.

4. This row is slightly doubtful. The concept of the three states of consciousness, sushupti, swapna, and jagrat, comes from Indian spiritual philosophy. However, God relates to low amplitude, high frequency waves such as gamma brainwaves, which are associated with REM sleep and vivid dreams, while deep, dreamless sleep is associated with delta brainwaves, the highest amplitude, lowest frequency brainwaves. So while God does relate to the lightest, deepest state of consciousness, it's not clear that the belief that it relates to deep, dreamless sleep is true.


5. The Heart is mentioned many other times on this site, generally in these instances it’s God, which relates to the spiritual plane/body and transpersonal chakras, that’s referred to, rather than the heart chakra and physical organ as is the case here. The true location of the source of spiritual energy and the mind, the center of our being, and our essence is the spiritual plane/body and first, highest transpersonal chakra, chakra above the head, as explained below, rather than by the emotional plane/body and heart chakra, which are lower and more external.

6. The spiritual planes/bodies and chakras and the phenomena they correlate with provide a definitive, natural basis for organizing society, for which purpose various models have been proposed across the world throughout history.

7. For more information, see the "Return-God-Fall-Separation Rhythm" section on the Purpose of Life page.

8. Rainbows are an example of the organization of the colors into concentric circles.

9. For examples of high frequency sound that resonates with the higher spiritual planes/bodies and chakras, see this Healing Music videos playlist. The connection between frequency levels and the spiritual planes/bodies, chakras, and regions of the body can be easily confirmed by noticing how sounds of various pitch (frequency) affect the body, higher pitched, e.g. treble, sounds stimulate the higher spiritual bodies, chakras, and areas of the body, while lower pitched, e.g. bass, sounds stimulate the lower spiritual bodies, chakras, and areas of the body.

10. For more information, see the "The Elements and Theory of Evolution" section below.

11. For more information, see the "Cosmology" section below.

12. These exist in heavens, higher-dimensional light realities.

13. This row is slightly doubtful in that electricity from wind and hydro power is produced using the generic mechanical energy that the elements create through their motion, not through their unique chemical properties. Yet there is a connection, e.g. between the higher chakras and the relatively sustainable, subtle, and clean technology of photovoltaics which uses the unique chemical properties of light, and between the lower chakras and the relatively unsustainable, crude, and dirty burning of fossil fuels which uses the unique chemical properties of hydocarbons found in minerals such as coal and shale. Also, ways of using the unique chemical properties of air and water may be developed eventually.

The Spiritual Planes/Bodies and Chakras

The spiritual planes/bodies are the various layers of our spiritual, multidimensional, energetic reality. Many esoteric spiritual philosophies including AnthroposophyGnosticismHermeticismRosicrucianismSant MatShamanism, Theosophy, and the mystical components of the world's religions discuss the spiritual planes/bodiesA developed spiritual body (spirit) is the reason for spiritual advancement, a developed mental body (mind) is the reason for intelligence, and a developed emotional body (emotions) is the reason for charisma and emotional intelligence, just as a developed physical energetic and physical material body (body) is the reason for physical strength.
The chakras are spiritual energy centers located throughout the body.
In the state of God, oneness, and Truth, all of the spiritual bodies and chakras are developed, balancedly.

Heaven and Hell

There are said to be an infinite number of spiritual planes and transpersonal chakras, chakras above the head. The first, highest ones represent God, oneness, Truth, gratitude, love, life, happiness, health, freedom, peak performance, the highest, most powerful state of consciousness, the origin of source energy, the source of the mind and thought, harmony, equilibrium, balance, including among yin and yang, receiving and giving, and among the spiritual planes/bodies and chakras, and alignment. They're represented by the spinning UFO/top in the image above.

Accordingly, the state of heaven is essentially one of centeredness on the higher spiritual planes/bodies and chakras.

In contrast, the state of hell is essentially one of disconnection from the higher spiritual planes/bodies and chakras, and excessive focus on the lower spiritual planes/bodies and chakras instead, the most extreme examples of which are gravitational singularities.

This explains why heaven has traditionally been associated with spiritual activities, the color white (purity, light), light, low amplitude, high frequency music, light (the light element), and a location above in the "heavens" (the light element, stars), while hell has traditionally been associated with lust and war, the colors red (e.g. red devils) and black (darkness), heavy, high amplitude, low frequency music, darkness (the absence of light), a location below in the underworld in the center of the Earth (the mineral element, the densest part of the geological body of the Earth), and the heat (passion) that relates to the lower chakras and the center of the EarthThe spirit and light stages of evolution that Earth is evolving towards are basically heaven, while the first, primal time period of Earth's history during which it existed at the mineral stage of evolution is named Hadean for Hades, the Greek term for hell.

This explains the meaning of the terms "high consciousness/energies/frequency/vibrations" and "low consciousness/energies/frequency/vibrations" as well, and also why according to the Great Year concept, the Golden Age or Satya Yuga is defined by spirituality and enlightenment, i.e. the higher spiritual planes/bodies and chakras, while the Iron Age or Kali Yuga is defined by materialism (physicality) and darkness, i.e. the lower spiritual planes/bodies and chakras.

The effectiveness of centering on the higher spiritual planes/bodies and chakras also explains the reason for the spiritual practices of self-inquiry, surrender and devotion to God, and meditation, the Christian teaching to be in the world, but not of it, the straight and narrow path concept, the Indian principle of detachment, and the value of temperance.

The current global sustainability crisis is also a spiritual crisis related to humanity’s movement downwards towards the lower spiritual bodies/planes and chakras, including by losing connection with spirit, overemphasizing masculine energy, and overusing resources related to the mineral element.

Spiritual Evolution and Creation

In fact, all polarities between God, oneness, and Truth and separation from God, division/duality, and ignorance, many of which are described on this site, relate to the polarity between the higher spiritual planes/bodies and chakras, and the lower ones. Therefore, spiritual evolution involves the raising of consciousness from the lower, denser spiritual planes/bodies and chakras, to the higher, lighter ones, and spiritual creation involves the emanation of consciousness from the higher, lighter spiritual planes/bodies and chakras, to the lower, denser ones, just as they're described by esoteric spiritual philosophies.

-

The reality of the spiritual planes/bodies closely matches with the ideas Plato presents in his tripartite theory of soul. The mental body corresponds to Plato's rational part, the emotional body to Plato's spirited part, and the physical energetic and physical material bodies to Plato's appetitive part. Many of the beliefs Plato presents in his tripartite theory of soul are accurate. Here are some examples:
- Success is created when all of the parts of the soul function harmoniously.
- Society is naturally organized according to the order of the parts of the soul.
- The rational part relates to leadership.
- The rational part corresponds to the head, the spirited part to the heart, and the appetitive part to the gut.
The gunas from Indian spiritual philosophy and the Buddhist skandhas too relate similarly.
Note: the state of God, oneness, and Truth is equality-based and inclusive, all of the spiritual planes/bodies, chakras, elements, and regions of the body serve a purpose and are necessary in a balanced system, and lower chakra deficiency, e.g. ungroundedness, is possible, so this isn't to say that the lower energies are totally bad, it's an imbalanced state involving excessive focus on them that's harmful.
"And so the invitation to raise the life energy through your physical being to the top chakra was never meant to be a suggestion or a demand that you disconnect from the bottom....  And if you do choose to be sexual with another, it will not “lower” you to a root-chakra-only level—unless you do the opposite of disconnecting at the bottom, and disconnect from the top."
Conversations with God, Book 3 by Neale Donald Walsch

The spiritual-chemical-biological elements of life are:


Here "spirit" is pure spirit, the essence of all things. The natural order is key, spirit is the highest, innermost, lowest amplitude, highest frequency, freest, lightest, finest, most formless, and subtlest element, then light (plasma), air (gas), water (liquid), and minerals (solid).
These elements correlate with other phenomena:

1. These exist in heavens, higher-dimensional light realities.

Elemental Requirements for Life

Spirit, light, air, water, and minerals are the essential elemental requirements for life, for example for plants to grow these are the essential elemental nutrients they need.

Structure of the Universe

Spirit, light, air, water, and minerals also compose the structure of the universe with regards to living planetary environments. All-encompassing spirit contains and emanates light, as in the light of God, Heaven, halos, auras, and divine beings, the biblical phrase, "Let there be light", the concepts of “enlightenment” and “illumination”, the New Age phrase, "light and love", and the sun, which many ancient peoples deified. Light contains and emanates air, light pervades the plasmic interplanetary medium which contains gas, including nitrogen and oxygen, and encompasses and merges with the atmosphere, or air. Air contains and emanates water, it contains water vapor which can form clouds and rain, and encompasses lakes, rivers, and oceans. And water contains and emanates minerals, it contains dissolved minerals, and lakes, rivers, and oceans encompass the geological bodies of planets, the cores of which are condensed heavy metals. This organization accords with esoteric spiritual cosmology, as well as with the concept of gravitational differentiation, which says that lighter portions of macroscopic structures naturally rise to the top, while denser portions sink to the bottom.
Conversely, minerals dissolve into water, which dissolves into air, which dissolves into light (the atmosphere too is layered according to density, with the uppermost, lightest layer merging with and its air molecules escaping [dissolving] into the plasmic interplanetary medium which is pervaded by light), which dissolves into spirit.

The structure just described can be illustrated using concentric circles as in the image above.

Theory of Evolution

Spirit, light, air, water, and minerals provide a spiritual explanation of evolution, too. Evolution can be seen as, in addition to a blending process, a progression from the mineral element to the spirit one, spanning across lifetimes through reincarnation. 

For instance, the evolution of planets such as Earth (Gaia) follows this order. The Earth began as rock, which signifies a mineral stage of evolution. Next, the Earth developed oceans and underwater life, which signify a water stage of evolution. Then, the Earth developed a life-sustaining atmosphere and air-breathing life that could live on land above water, including humans, which signify an air stage of evolution. And now, humans worldwide are awakening to a greater spiritual reality that involves subjects such as environmental sustainability, natural healing practices, ancient civilizations, reincarnation, ascension, spiritual abilities and planes, higher-dimensional beings such as extraterrestrials, angels, gods and goddesses, and the Creator, and universal oneness. All things considered, including the previously mentioned relationship between light and spirit, and the order of the elements, it makes sense to think that this greater spiritual reality signifies an approaching light stage of evolution that transcends the present air stage just as the present air stage transcends the past water stage, that an even more advanced spirit stage exists as well, and that biological, chemical, and spiritual evolution are one and the same.

This order can be seen in the growth of other lifeforms such as humans and plants too. A human begins as a fertilized egg implanted in a uterus (minerals, earth), next it grows in the womb surrounded by amniotic fluid and cleansed and nourished through its mother's blood (water), then it's born and takes its first breath (air), finally it spends the rest of its life reaching for light, the stars, truth (light, spirit), and ultimately God (spirit). A plant begins as a seed planted in soil (minerals, earth), next as it's watered it begins to germinate (water), then it sprouts above the ground and reaches the air (air), finally it spends the rest of its life continuing to grow and reaching for the sun (light), and ultimately God (spirit).

Conversely, pure spirit is the essence and source of all things. Next on the spiritual, evolutionary scale are heavenly, higher-dimensional light beings such as the Creator, beings to whom worlds are thoughtforms, solar systems like atoms, and humans like cells, goddesses and gods, angels, legendary, celestial, magical, and other supernatural beings, extraterrestrials, and spirits. After them comes air-breathing life that can live on land above water, including humans. The difference between light beings and us is on a level similar to that of the difference between us and the following group, underwater life that has yet to evolve the ability to respire air, science tells us that the earliest lifeforms on Earth depended on water to respire. Finally are minerals, as many ancient peoples knew, even minerals, especially crystals and gems, have consciousness, there’s a line in the song “Colors of the Wind” by Pocohantas that says, “every rock and tree and creature. Has a life, has a spirit, has a name.”

Celestial, Heavenly, Higher-Dimensional Kingdoms and Their Starship Worlds

Spirit, light, air, water, and minerals furthermore form the organization of individual, separate entities such as celestial, heavenly, higher-dimensional kingdoms and their starship worlds. Pure spirit exists at the heart of their inner circles, just as monarchs and healers have traditionally been associated with divine powers, and the four subsequent elements are layered accordingly. One function of minerals, the outer layer, is to provide protection, as the shells of turtles, armor, shields, and swords of knights, military equipment, and walls of castles do:


Starship worlds video (starting at 6:11).

(The concentric circles image at the beginning of this section represents unity consciousness, being a spirit-predominant form that depicts the structure of the universe as a whole, whereas the image above represents separation consciousness, being a more minerals-predominant, protective form.

Also, the meaning of image above overlaps with the meaning of the logarithmic spiral, e.g. the center corresponds to spirit, the highest spiritual plane/body and chakra, zero amplitude and infinity frequency, etc.)

Classical Elements

Spirit, light, air, water, and minerals suggest a definitive meaning to the classical elements as well. The classical elements, commonly identified as aether, fire, air, water, and earth, are a universal spiritual theme, they’re emphasized in the spiritual philosophies of ancient peoples worldwide, including the Africans, Babylonians, Celts, Chinese, Egyptians, Greeks, Indians, Japanese, Native Americans, Norse, Persians, and Tibetans, and appear often in fantasy stories, such as those of Captain Planet, DC and Marvel Comics, Diablo, Magic the Gathering, Naruto, and Pokemon. One explanation of their meaning is that they’re the basic materials that compose all matter. However, there are many substances that don’t seem to qualify as aether, fire, air, water, or earth, some examples are the hydrogen and helium conglomerates that make up gas giants like Jupiter, liquid nitrogen, and dry ice. Another explanation is that they’re the elements of nature. However, this doesn’t explain the special significance of the usual five that are selected out of the many possible natural elements it seems could be identified. Also, it's not clear what the true identities of the classical elements are, as they vary between traditions, for instance, instead of aether and air, the Chinese elements consist of wood and metal. However, if you interpret aether as spirit as is often done, substitute sunlight for fire, which is sensible considering that the elements are supposed to correspond to the states of matter, plasma, gas, liquid, and solid, and the sun is a plasma like fire, and interpret Earth as minerals, a definitive meaning emerges, spirit, light, air, water, and minerals are significant for the reasons mentioned earlier.

-

Spirit, light, air, water, and minerals additionally correspond to the spiritual planes and bodies, chakras, regions of the body, and more.

Many of the concepts in this section such as that of the natural order of the elements according to lightness, the spirit-like nature of aether, and organization into concentric circles were discussed by ancient philosophers such as Aristotle.

Here are estimated examples of sound tracks that correspond to the different spiritual planes/bodies, densities of reality, chakras, elements, and regions of the body:

Note: Though some deep sea organisms may be able to live without direct exposure to sunlight, all life does seem to depend on ecological, biogeochemical cycles that require all the discussed elements, and more advanced lifeforms do depend on light more directly.

"God is light; in him there is no darkness at all."
- Book of John, the Bible

Hinc lucem et pocula sacra (Literal: "From here, light and sacred draughts", Non-literal: "From this place, we gain enlightenment and precious knowledge.")
- University of Cambridge motto

Dominus Illuminatio Mea ("the Lord is my light")
- University of Oxford motto

Lux et veritas ("light and truth")
- Yale University motto

"Water is life's true and unique medium. Without water, life simply cannot be sustained. It is the fluid that lubricates the workings of the cell, transporting the materials and molecular machinery from one place to another and facilitating the chemical reactions that keep us going. Water is sustenance and cleansing fluid, bearing nutrients to where they are needed and taking away wastes. It is even a structural agent in plants -- it enables flowers to hold up their heads to the Sun. No wonder we would quickly die without it, for we need to consume at least two pints a day for long-term health. Some cells can avoid death if their water is extracted, but then they shut down utterly until rehydrated."

1. Some systems of the body and body parts such as the cardiovascular and digestive systems and the heart seem to correspond to more than one region of the body and their corresponding spiritual planes/bodies, chakras, and elements.

2. Many of the chakras too correspond to more than one region of the body.

3. The regions of the body overlap with one another, extending beyond the marks in the image which indicate the main parts of each region.

1) This region of the body corresponds to the:

Spiritual plane/body
The highest plane that relates and is closest to God and source energy is the spiritual plane/body. God is the source of the mind and thought. Highness relates to Godliness, divinity, and leadership, as in the honorific, "Your Highness".

Transpersonal, Crown, and Third Eye chakras
The transpersonal, Crown, and Third Eye chakras are located in this extended region, relate to spirituality, and are the highest ones that are closest to God and source energy. The transpersonal and Crown chakras relate to God and spiritual energy, and the Third Eye Chakra relates to spiritual and psychic abilities such as clairvoyance.

Spirit element
Spiritual energy from God flows down through the transpersonal chakras and enters the body through the Crown Chakra.

2) This region of the body corresponds to the:

Mental plane/body
The brain is the center of the mind and thought. The eyes are the center of vision, a mental phenomenon.

Crown, Third Eye, and Throat chakras
The Crown, Third Eye, and Throat chakras are located in this extended region, and relate to mental abilities and thought.

Light element
The mind is the center of imagination, visualization, and insight, which relate to light and vision. The brain and eyes process light and enable vision. The brain is the center of the nervous system which performs bioelectrochemical (electricity relates to light which is electromagnetic radiation, for instance lightning is an electrical [as well as plasmic] phenomenon) processes. Light is associated with awareness, i.e. intelligence, which relates to the brain. Intelligent people are called bright, a reference to light.

3) This region of the body corresponds to the:

Emotional plane/body
The ears and the sounds they process, the nose and scents it processes, and the mouth and the flavors it processes relate to the emotions. "Breathtaking", "hold your breath", "lump in your throat", "get it off your chest", and references to the heart such as "heartwarming" refer to the emotions.

Throat, Heart, Solar Plexus, and Sacral chakras
The Throat, Heart, Solar Plexus, and Sacral chakras are located in this extended region, and relate to the emotions. Many blue crystals that correspond to the Throat Chakra such as Blue Calcite are known for their soothing effect on the emotional body.

Air element
The ears process sound waves traveling through the air, including from vocal communication, and enable hearing. The nose processes aroma compounds traveling through the air and enables olfaction, the sense of smell. The respiratory system, including the nose, mouth, throat, and lungs, processes air and enables breathing. The vocal cords, too, process air and enable vocal communication. The heart receives oxygen from the air from the lungs and transports it to the rest of the body through the blood.

4) This region of the body corresponds to the:

Physical energetic plane/body
References to the gut such as "butterflies in your stomach", "gut feeling", "guts" (courage), and "visceral" refer to lower emotional feelings close to the physical plane. Gut-related feelings can also refer to the next lower region of the body which includes the intestines which are also considered part of the gut.

Sacral chakra
The Sacral Chakra is located in this extended region, and relates to the lower, physical emotions, or similarly the higher, emotional physical feelings, for example it relates to sensuality.

Water element
The heart pumps blood (water) throughout the body. The liver and spleen process blood and other fluids. The pancreas and stomach also process fluids. The renal system including the bladder and kidneys processes water/urine.

5) This region of the body corresponds to the:

Physical material plane/body
The sexual/reproductive organs relate to physical pleasure, and produce eggs and seeds (physical material plane/body).

Sacral, Root, and Subpersonal chakras
The Sacral, Root, and subpersonal chakras are located in this extended region, and relate to the physical material plane/body. The Sacral Chakra relates to physical pleasure. The Root Chakra relates to physical life, physical strength, and the physical body. Subpersonal chakras such as the Earth Star Chakra connect and ground us to and are located in the Earth (physical material plane/body). 

Minerals (earth) element
The lower chakras and crystals that correspond to them, such as brown and black crystals, connect and ground us to Earth. The intestines absorb nutrients (e.g. minerals) from the chyme passing through them, which is converted into soil (earth)-like feces, solid (physical material plane/body) waste that's excreted after which it's recycled back into the Earth. The female reproductive system is center of implantation and fertilization (minerals, earth). The legs and feet connect with the Earth/ground, enabling Earthing/grounding. Lowness relates to dirt (minerals, earth) and dirtiness.

These distinct regions of the body that correlate with the elements can be clearly seen in diagrams of the organs of the human body.

Tree analogy

To help see how the regions of the human body correspond to the elements, the human body can be compared to a tree.

1) This region of the body corresponds to the:

Spirit element and higher-dimensional components of a tree. The spiritual plane/body is the destination of human growth, similar to the higher-dimensional components of a tree which relate to light and ultimately God and are the destination of a tree's growth.

2) This region of the body corresponds to the:

Light element and crown of a tree.

The brain:
- performs bioelectrochemical (electricity relates to light which is electromagnetic radiation, for instance lightning is an electrical [as well as plasmic] phenomenonprocesses including photobioelectrochemical (light-related) processes such as visual phototransduction (processing light to enable vision, the retina is part of the brain)
- consists of leaf-like dendritic spines and various types of neurological branches
- is the center and top (crown) of the nervous system which has many other tree-like properties too, including consisting of tree-like dendrites ("dendron" is the Greek word for tree), a trunk-like spinal cord, and roots

Similarly, the crown of a tree:
- contains leaves that perform bioelectrochemical processes including photobioelectrochemical processes such as photosynthesis, and are attached to branches
- is the upper part of the tree

3) This region of the body corresponds to the:

Air element and crown of a tree as well. The lungs contain alveoli that process air, perform gas exchange, and are attached to branch-like bronchioles, and the lungs are located in the upper part of the body, similar to the crown of a tree which contains leaves that process air, perform gas exchange, and are attached to branches, and is the upper part of the tree. The arms, too, can be compared to tree branches.

4) This region of the body corresponds to the:

Water element and trunk of a tree. It contains organs that process water, and is the trunk and middle part of the body, similar to the trunk of a tree which transports water in its tubes, and is the middle part of the tree.

5) This region of the body corresponds to the:

Minerals element and roots of a tree. Projections in the intestines called villi absorb nutrients (e.g. minerals) from the chyme they contact, and are located in the lower part of the body, similar to the roots of a tree which absorb nutrients (e.g. minerals) from the soil (earth) they're planted in, and are the lower part of the tree. Region 5 also corresponds to the minerals-related state in which a human begins its growth, as a fertilized egg implanted in a uterus (physical material plane/body, Sacral and Root chakras, minerals, earth), similar to the state in which a tree begins its growth, as a seed planted in soil (physical material plane/body, minerals, earth). Additionally, the legs and feet connect the body to the Earth/ground, just as the roots of a tree connect the tree to the Earth/ground.

Note: The original information in this section, as well in the "Macrocosm and Microcosm, the Spiritual Planes/Bodies and Chakras, Heaven and Hell" and "The Elements and Theory of Evolution" sections above, is valuable in that it creates a true, definitive, clear model of the organization of reality, and explanation of the macrocosm-microcosm principle, by lining up and matching together the spiritual planes/bodies, chakras, elements, regions of the body, and more, in a way in which everything clicks together and makes senseThere's a lot of information out there suggesting connections between these phenomena.

While air is lighter than water, it like water is a medium full of gas particles whose kinetic energy and vibrational frequency is higher than that of liquid particles. Similarly, while the interplanetary medium surrounding the atmosphere is lighter than air, it too is a medium full of plasma particles whose kinetic energy and vibrational frequency is higher than that of gas particles. Likewise, the vacuum of outer space beyond the interplanetary medium corresponds to a state of even higher energy and frequency, in an infinite universe layered by energy, frequency, and lightness levels in accordance with the concept of gravitational differentiation, with gravitational singularities at the bottom, and God, the highest energy and frequency, lightest state, at the top (the direct relationship between a photon's energy and frequency levels is expressed by the Planck-Einstein relation, E = hf).

(Dark matter, too, relates to spirit and higher dimensions that are invisible to the ordinary person, this too can be inferred through the reasoning explained throughout this "Cosmology" section)

"Now, that which is the subtle essence—in it all that exists has its self. That is the True. That is the Self. That thou art, Svetaketu."

"No point is more central than this, that empty space is not empty. It is the seat of the most violent physics."
- John Wheeler

"The value of the critical density is very small: it corresponds to roughly 6 hydrogen atoms per cubic meter, an astonishingly good vacuum by terrestrial standards! One of the key scientific questions in cosmology today is: what is the average density of matter in our universe? While the answer is not yet known for certain, it appears to be tantalizingly close to the critical density."

"The evolution of the universe is determined by a struggle between the momentum of expansion and the pull (or push!) of gravity....

Recent observations of distant supernova have suggested that the expansion of the universe is actually accelerating or speeding up... which implies the existence of a form of matter with a strong negative pressure, such as the cosmological constantThis strange form of matter is also sometimes referred to as the “dark energy”. Unlike gravity which works to slow the expansion down, dark energy works to speed the expansion up. If dark energy in fact plays a significant role in the evolution of the universe, then in all likelihood the universe will continue to expand forever....

If this is true, then dark energy is the major driving force behind the fate of the universe and it will expand forever exponentially....

The results suggest the geometry of the universe is flat and will expand forever."

"We now know (as of 2013) that the universe is flat with only a 0.4% margin of error. This suggests that the Universe is infinite in extent; however, since the Universe has a finite age, we can only observe a finite volume of the Universe."

"...the vacuum energy appears to be infinite... the infinity arises from the contribution of modes with very small wavelengths..."

"The current and proposed measurements of the CBR offer a convincing test of the homogeneity of space. Measurements of the temperature of the CBR are uniform to one part in 105. This suggests the universe is homogeneous and isotropic to a high degree of accuracy."
"A century from now, it will be well known that: the vacuum of space which fills the universe is itself the real substratum of the universe; vacuum in a circulating state becomes matter"

Spiritual Evolution (Dispersion) and Creation (Condensation)

Spiritual Evolution (Dispersion)

The concept of spiritual evolution as being a progression from the lower, denser spiritual planes/bodies, chakras, and elements, to the higher, lighter onesis corroborated by many concepts from physical cosmology.

- The second law of thermodynamics says that "the entropy of the universe tends to a maximum" (Clausius). The state of God and vacuum/zero-point/dark energy is the state of maximum entropy which the universe naturally evolves towards in accordance with the second law of thermodynamics:

God, spirit, source Vacuum/zero-point/dark energy State of maximum entropy
 Infinite lightness- Extremely low in density (cosmologists estimate the density of dark energy to be ~7×10−30 g/cm3)
- The universe, which cosmologists believe is composed of about 70% dark energy, is extremely low in density overall (comparable to the vacuum-like critical density)
- Infinity frequency, vacuum/zero-point energy is calculated as being infinite in amount (without renormalization)
Infinite expansiveness/diffuseness
Infinite freedom, the positive spiritual power- Dark energy is the cause of the universe's perpetual, accelerating (exponential) expansion, in contrast to the contractive influence of gravity
- Cosmologists believe that vacuum energy was the cause of cosmic inflation
Infinite expansiveness/diffuseness, high number of degrees of freedom
Primordial void, zero amplitude, perfect equality, peace, equilibrium, and smoothness - Dark energy is distributed uniformly across space
- The universe, which cosmologists believe is composed of about 70% dark energy, is uniform, homogeneous, and isotropic overall (the cosmological principle)
Perfect thermodynamic equilibrium
All-pervasive- Cosmologists believe that the universe is composed of about 70% dark energy1
- The universe is extremely low in density (comparable to the vacuum-like critical density) overall
- Cosmologists believe that the universe is composed of about 70% dark energy and that it's infinite in extent
Infinite expansiveness/diffuseness, the statistically most likely macrostate1

1. Boltzmann showed that the second law of thermodynamics can be explained using statistics. The entropy of a macrostate can be defined and calculated using the Boltzmann-Planck formula:

S = kBlnW

Where S is the entropy of the macrostate, kB is Boltzmann's constant, and W is the number of possible microstates that can compose the macrostate.

Higher entropy macroscopic states are states with a greater number of possible microstates that can compose them, therefore they're more probable to occur, this is why in the long run a system inevitably evolves in this direction.

Boltzmann's statistical explanation of entropy and the inference of the connection between dark energy and the state of maximum entropy based on the connection between a substance's prevalence and its entropy level are corroborated by the overwhelming prevalence of plasma, the highest entropy state of visible matter, throughout the visible universe. Cosmologists believe that the universe is composed of about 70% invisible dark energy and 25% invisible dark matter, and that of the remaining 5% ordinary visible matter, 99.9% of it is plasma.

Dark energy Lightest Most uniform throughout space ~70% of the universe Highest entropyInvisible, spirit
Dark matter1 Denser than dark energy, lighter than ordinary matter Less uniform throughout space than dark energy, more uniform throughout space than ordinary matter ~25% of the universe Lower entropy than dark energy, higher entropy than ordinary matter Invisible, spirit
Ordinary matter Densest Least uniform throughout space, most condensed ~5% of the universe (99.9% plasma) Lowest entropyVisible, matter

1. The comparisons between dark matter and ordinary matter are based on comparisons between dark matter and condensed cosmic forms such as stars and planets in galaxies.

                                                   

The connection between a substance's lightness, prevalence, and entropy is also corroborated by the high abundance of the lighter elements as compared to the heavier elements throughout the universe.

 Regarding the elemental evolution of Earth, the elements correspond to the states of matter, which correspond to entropy levels (the states of matter also represent frequency [kinetic energy and vibrational frequency] levels, the direct relationship between a photon's energy and frequency levels is expressed by the Planck-Einstein relation, E = hf).

-

- Just as waves naturally and spontaneously dissipate, particles naturally and spontaneously decay into lighter particles, unless they're prevented from doing so by conservation laws, as is the case with some elementary particles.

"99.9 percent of the [visible] Universe is made up of plasma," says Dr. Dennis Gallagher, a plasma physicist at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center. "Very little material in space is made of rock like the Earth."


Spiritual Creation (Condensation)

The concept of spiritual creation as being an emanation from the higher, lighter spiritual planes/bodies, chakras, and elements, to the lower, denser ones, too, is corroborated by many concepts from physical cosmology.

- As explained in the nebular hypothesis, cosmologists believe that the universe's cosmic forms such as stars and planets are created through the condensation of lighter, nebulous material. Some of the condensation processes involved are gravitational accretion and collapse.

- The process of nucleosynthesis explains how the chemical elements were created through the fusion (condensation) of progressively lighter particles and elements. Protons and neutrons fused together to create the lighter elements during Big Bang nucleosynthesis, and the lighter elements fused together to create the heavier elements during stellar nucleosynthesis. Again, the high abundance of lighter elements as compared to heavier elements throughout the universe is notable.

- The phenomenon of quantum fluctuations involves the disappearance and appearance (creation) of particles (condensed forms) into and out of the vacuum state. Furthermore, small increases in density from the vacuum state caused by quantum fluctuations that were magnified as the universe expanded are the origin of all the cosmic forms throughout the universe.

"Just as we see ice condensing out of something that used to be all water, spiritual observation allows us to trace how material things, processes, and beings "condense" out of an element that was formerly completely spiritual in character....

Let's imagine a being with senses that are capable of perceiving ice, but not the finer state of water from which ice emerges by means of cooling. For this being, water would simply not be present and could only be perceived when parts of it turned to ice. Likewise, the spiritual element that lies concealed behind earthly processes remains hidden from those who do not admit the existence of anything not present to the physical senses."
An Outline of Esoteric Science by Rudolf Steiner

"The Planck data confirm the basic predictions that quantum fluctuations are at the origin of all structures in the Universe."
- Jean-Loup Puget, Principal Investigator for the HFI-instrument on the Planck satellite

"Prior to inflation, the portion of the universe we can observe today was microscopic, and quantum fluctuation in the density of matter on these microscopic scales expanded to astronomical scales during Inflation. Over the next several hundred million years, the higher density regions condensed into stars, galaxies, and clusters of galaxies."

Gravity

Spiritual belief systems often describe a negative spiritual power that works in the opposite direction of God and relates to evil (this negative power is referred to in the quote at the end of the "Return-God-Fall-Separation Rhythm" section on the Purpose of Life page), this negative spiritual power manifests as gravity in the physical universe.

Negative spiritual power Gravity
 Pulls energy towards the lower spiritual planes/bodies, chakras, elements, and regions of the body Pulls energy towards the lower spiritual planes/bodies, chakras, elements, and regions of the body
Grounds, pulls downwards, causes falling Grounds, pulls downwards, causes falling
Pulls energy towards bondage and denseness Conglomerates and condenses energy, e.g. into superclusters, galaxies, solar systems, stars, and planets
Represents selfishness Contractively pulls inwards towards its source
Destroys Crushes

Note: gravity is the main physical form of the negative spiritual power on the macroscopic level, though it's not its only form.

Gravitational Singularities

Accordingly, at the opposite end of the spiritual spectrum from God are gravitational singularities, infinitely dense entities that create infinitely strong gravitational fields, such as the initial state of the universe before the Big Bang and the centers of black holes.

God, spirit, source The Omega and the Alpha (the end goal of evolution and beginning source of life)Infinitely lightInfinite freedom, the positive spiritual powerZero amplitude, perfect equilibrium, perfect smoothness Infinity frequency, infinity entropy, infinite energy
Gravitational singularities The Omega and the Alpha, in the opposite way, the initial state of the universe before the Big Bang is the beginning source of the evolution of our universe, and the centers of black holes are the end destination (goal) of creation where gravity pulls entities out of our observable universeInfinitely denseInfinite bondage, gravity relates to the negative spiritual powerInfinity amplitude, infinite deviation from the equilibrium state, infinite clumping and curving of space-time1 Zero frequency, zero entropy, absolute zero2 

1. Heavier, denser objects create bigger waves, e.g. in water. Many heavy, dense cosmic forms create gravitational waves which distort space-time (increase its amplitude).

2. This box is based on the assumption that the universe evolves towards a state of infinite entropy from a state of zero entropy in the form of a gravitational singularity in accordance with the second law of thermodynamics.

Omega       Alpha

(initial state of the universe before the Big Bang) Alpha       Omega (centers of black holes)                                      
Gravitational singularity

The match between the polarity between God and the negative spiritual power and the polarity between God and gravitational singularities is an example of the macrocosm-microcosm principle.

Big Bang Theory

The concept of spiritual evolution as being a progression from the lower, denser spiritual planes/bodies, chakras, and elements, to the higher, lighter ones, combined with the concept of perpetual and exponential growth as exhibited in logarithmic spirals and stock market charts, is additionally corroborated by the dark energy and gravitational singularity-related Big Bang theory, which says that the universe is perpetually and exponentially expanding, and began as an infinitely dense gravitational singularity.

The concept of a plant growing from a seed, a nutrient (e.g. minerals)-rich, maximally dense, protective state, too, matches with the Big Bang theory, which says that the universe has been expanding ever since it began as an infinitely dense gravitational singularity.

"What makes you think infinity goes only one way? — So. . .there is no end going up, any more than there is going down."
Conversations with God, Book 1 by Neale Donald Walsch

"...on the largest scales we can observe, the universe appears nearly uniform, it is currently expanding, and there is strong evidence that it was hotter and denser in the past."

-

Overall, on the spiritual level, the universe is one. However, on the physical material level, division appears to exist. The structure of the universe explains this dichotomy. Overall, on the spiritual level, which corresponds to the universe's predominant state and vacuum/zero-point/dark energy, the universe is united; it's uniform, homogenous, and isotropic. However, on the physical material level, which corresponds to condensed ordinary matter, gravity, which relates to the negative spiritual power, causes energy to clump into individual cosmic forms such as stars and planets, creating the appearance of division. This explanation also applies to the human condition in accordance with the macrocosm-microcosm principle. Overall, on the spiritual level, which corresponds to our true selves and our spiritual bodies, we are all the one universal spirit. However, on the physical material level, which corresponds to our physical material bodies, we appear to be divided into individual physical material bodies.

All form such as matter is merely a temporary, condensed, fallen state of the formless eternal universal spirit. This understanding matches with the concept of maya from Indian spiritual philosophy, which says that the phenomenal universe is an illusion appearing on the underlying true Self.

"Just as the sky is (i.e. appears to be) stained by dust, smoke and clouds, so also the pure Self in contact with the qualities of maya is (i.e. appears to be) soiled by them."
- Yoga Vasistha Sara

God exists and is the Omega and the Alpha, the end goal of evolution and beginning source of life. Similarly, creation is spiritual, infinite, and eternal, it perpetually and exponentially grows towards God, like a logarithmic spiral perpetually and exponentially approaching its origin, and a stock market chart perpetually and exponentially growing towards infinity. There will not be a definite end to the universe, nor was there a definite beginning to it. An understanding of God which is equivalent to vacuum/zero-point/dark energy will eventually cause cosmologists to discard the theory of the heat death of the universe, just as cosmologists recently discovered that dark energy is accelerating the expansion of the universe and discarded the belief that gravity will inevitably slow or reverse this expansion.

"Well perhaps...and just perhaps...in a cycle that is so far distant, so long past in cosmic time that it is beyond anything that you could probably comprehend...that a fragment of that which I AM, this very fragment which now speaks to you, was then as you are now....

Perhaps it went beyond form and became a spirit, and thereafter dwelt within those higher spirit planes as it grew into greater and yet greater realization of the infinite vastness of Life itself.

Perhaps for countless cycles it existed as a spirit, wherein it grew in awareness, grew to reflect greater and greater Light. Then, as the vast cosmic cycles continued on in their endless journey, it grew in spirit into even greater understanding of that which it was...it transcended even the lofty planes of spirit and came to realize that it was more than a spirit, it was a living Soul...it was pure Light, a living fragment of the very Source itself...it was Living Light.

Perhaps it finally went beyond that spirit planes, moving into greater and yet greater dimensions of life, where awareness expands to include whole regions of the cosmos, which included not only the myriad of spirit planes associated with each planet, but the higher dimensions of life beyond all planets, beyond all form. Perhaps it dwelt within those greater dimensions beyond all matter, beyond all form, as it perceived yet greater and vaster expressions which lay yet above it, greater dimensions to explore and to experience as Life ever unfolded in its majestic plan....

Perhaps it finally came to know the very essence and magnitude of creation itself, and therein participated in creation...wherein it came to realize that it could create nothing outside of itself, for there exist only ONE, and it was part of that ONE....

Perhaps through these eternal cycles it finally transcended all need for individuality. It let go of individuality and allowed all that it was to flow back into the First Cause, the Source of all that it was...the mystery of mysteries, the unknowable, unfathomable First Cause, wherein there is only ONE....

That was but one of the Grand Cycles of Life. A new cycle was to begin, and it was to come to know this as just the beginning...."

Guiding Dietary Principles

Balancing cleansing and nourishing/building foods: the state of life, happiness, and health balances two qualities, cleanliness and nourishment. Cleansing foods include raw fruits and vegetables, and nourishing/building foods include grains, legumes, fatty fruits, seeds, nuts, and animal foods.

Vegetarianism and humane foods: there are many spiritual, ethical, health, social, environmental, and economic reasons to choose vegetarianism and humane foods. To evolve towards greater oneness, peace and love, we must purify ourselves as much as possible, and be free from violence. Also, if we want to receive grace from more powerful beings, we must give the same to less powerful beings such as animals. It's reasonable to think that all humans can thrive on a vegetarian diet after adapting.

Natural and live foods: foods in the diet are fresh and if appropriate, raw, seeds including grains, legumes, seeds, and nuts are sprouted or soaked, and cooked food is cooked gently, e.g. steamed or boiled. Local and organic foods, too, are preferred.

Whole foods: whole foods, such as whole milk products like whole fat kefir, yogurt, and milk, have advantages as compared to fractionated foods, such as cheese and reduced fat milk.

Grains and legumes: grains and legumes and the protein they provide are valuable for vegetarian diets long-term. Sticking to gluten-free grains and sprouting, soaking, and/or culturing them helps to resolve their issues.

Salt: the body requires adequate, balanced sodium intake.

Herbs and spices: these plant substances have medicinal properties and their flavor completes meals. Basil, cultured vegetables, cumin, garlic, ginger, horseradish, mustard, nori, onions, paprika, parsley, peppers such as black pepper, cayenne pepper, crushed red pepper, and jalapenos, radishes, sage, turmeric, wasabi, and many other herbs and spices have powerful healing properties.

Food combining: in many people's experience, some food combinations digest more efficiently than others.

Sequential eating: eating foods one at a time in order of lightest to heaviest is another way to improve digestion.

Limiting the number of foods per meal: another way to simplify meals and improve digestion.

Vegetarian and humane animal foods (e.g. dairy and eggs): there exists the potential of developing nutritional deficiencies on diets that limit animal foods. Many who try veganism eventually become malnourished. Even Ghandi was impelled to include milk in his diet. More information can be found in articles about veganism on:

Raw, non-homogenized, whole milk: there are advantages to taking clean milk in its natural and unprocessed form. Including clean cultured milk products such as kefir and yogurt in vegetarian diets can be worthwhile, even if milk has its pros and cons.

Observations

- Since adopting the diet, I’ve felt physically content, digestion has been smooth, and sleep has been deeper with vivider dreams. Each meal feels complete, while also inducing appetite for the next.

- The diet includes all the major food groups available to the vegetarian diet in every daily cycle, which helps it to be complete and to maintain regularity. It even includes fatty fruits in every daily cycle, as grains and legumes without fat leads to hunger soon after, and fatty fruits combine well with grains and legumes while other fat foods don't.

The diet helps to regulate energy levels throughout the day, prevent the issues with sugar, and induce restful sleep, by providing the appropriate types of fuel at the appropriate times of dayCarbohydrates burn faster and are the more appropriate fuel for higher metabolic activity, for instance during the day, while fat and protein burn slower and are the more appropriate fuels for lower metabolic activity, for instance during the late afternoon and evening. Accordingly, the diet consists of carbohydrate foods until the end of lunch, then switches to fat and protein foods. Furthermore, in the morning, when the body is in a cleansing phase, the diet consists of only raw fruits, the most cleansing type of food, and later in the day, as the sun moves away from its peak state and the day becomes progressively slower, denser, and heavier, the foods in the diet too become progressively slower-burning, denser in nutrients, and heavier. 

- The diet helps to optimize digestive and metabolic functioning throughout the day, by matching with the progressive nature of digestionFoods are digested, absorbed, and metabolized in the order they're eaten, and typically take 24 to 72 hours to be fully digested. Therefore, to help streamline digestion and minimize backlog, it's ideal to eat them in order of lightest and most readily digestible, to densest, heaviest, and least readily digestible, just as it's natural to begin a multi-course meal with a salad or other light appetizer, then move on to the denser, heavier main courseAccordingly, the foods in the diet are eaten in order of lightest to densest throughout the day (sequential eating):

Lighter carbohydrate foods → denser, heavier carbohydrate foods → lighter fat and protein foods → denser, heavier fat and protein foods 

The diet helps to optimize digestive and metabolic functioning throughout the day, also by synchronizing with the digestive cycleNature's cycles follow the pattern rise→peak→fall→valley→, for example, the life cycle peaks in early adulthood, the yearly cycle peaks at the summer solstice, the lunar cycle peaks at the full moon, and the daily cycle peaks at noon. This pattern is even embedded in the yin yang symbol, though the cycle isn't centered at the peak:


The digestive cycle mirrors the daily cycle, with digestion being stronger in the middle of the day, such as around moon, and weaker in the morning and evening. Accordingly, the diet follows the pattern:

Breakfast: smaller → lunch: larger → snack and dinner: smaller →

Most of the food is eaten in the middle of the day, during lunch, and less is eaten in the morning and evening, during breakfast, snack, and dinner.

- The diet contains about 2381 calories per day, about 52% of calories from carbohydrates, about 34% of calories from fat, about 14% of calories from protein, and about 82 grams of protein per day. All of these statistics are considered healthy, normal, and balanced.

Remarks

- The diet doesn't follow the recommendation to increase carotenoid absorption from vegetables by eating them with fat. It seems unlikely that this principle would apply only to humans, and that when animals eat carotenoid-rich food, such as when cows eat grass, they too should be eating them with fat. Perhaps in this case more absorption isn’t important, especially since fat-soluble vitamins like carotenoids are more likely to be involved in overdose.

- Both legumes and fatty fruits seem to combine well with starch, and though there's conflicting information about this out there, much if not most of it supports this.

Shortcomings

- The diet harmonizes with principles that apply to everyone and is helpful to use as a starting point, at the same time everyone is unique and no one exact same diet is necessarily best for everyone.

- There are many who seem to thrive on vegan diets, which are ideologically preferable if they can be sustained long-term, even over generations.

- It can be challenging to follow the diet while also participating in meals with others and maintaining a busy life.

Crystals, Gems, and Precious Metals

Crystals, Gems, and Precious Metals Image


Crystals, gems, and precious metals of all the colors of the rainbow

 Crystals, gems, and precious metals have healing and other metaphysical properties. This is why throughout history worldwide, people have treasured minerals such as crystals, gems, and precious metals, for instance crystals in the legendary civilizations of Atlantis and Lemuria, diamonds and gold in modern day society, lapis lazuli in Ancient Egypt, and jade in China. They're a hallmark of luxurious lifestyles, crown jewels such as coronets, crowns, diadems, orbs, robes, sceptres, swords, and tiaras are prized possessions of aristocrats, monarchs, and royalty worldwide, among the general public, too, jewelry such as bracelets, earrings, necklaces, pendants, and rings are highly valued, and powerful characters are often associated with these objects in stories. Special minerals have traditionally been linked with anniversary years and birth months. Magical minerals are a common theme in books, folklore, movies, TV shows, and video games, for instance in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and "The Lord of the Rings" series. Awards such as badges, decorations, medals, plaques, and trophies have traditionally been made with special metals. These materials are often integrated into castles, cathedrals, chapels, mansions, palaces, temples, and other renowned architecture. Mining for diamonds, emeralds, gold, pearls, rubies, sapphires, and other minerals, is highly lucrative.

Spirituality and Science

 



Spirituality and science converge into one Truth. The information on this site is consistent with and would be confirmed by science, and we can also discern the truth of much of it ourselves, as experience shows that a healthy (clean and nourished) spirit, living in harmony with the laws of nature, positive, pure energy, intuition, life (nature), and values such as oneness, peace, love, and freedom hold keys to happiness, health, and healing. While our current science has accomplished amazing things, there are others outside of our scientific community whose understanding of life and the universe is more advanced in many ways, as many spiritual beliefs, and those who held them, were right before they were understood by mainstream science, for instance this was the case regarding the health benefits of meditation, and the necessity of environmental stewardship. This shows that true spiritual knowledge exists, even if much spiritual knowledge is incomplete in modern times, many spirituality-related claims aren't true, and spirituality and natural medicine are often derided as pseudoscience.

"Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."
