The body is matter, the soul is taken from the material-spiritual, bound because of the fall of the one great spirit, and the spirit is a divine spark, which is to elevate and spiritualize the soul. The latter, in turn, through its refinement will bring also the elements of the material body onto a higher level, so that everything can gradually proceed on its gamut of perfection, as it had been decreed in advance in the great plan of creation.
In these conclusions already lies the first erroneous concept, since you only consider your own spirit as endowed with the divine spark that is to ennoble everything. For, had you not always (often unconsciously) aristocratic ideas, which you want to apply to My person, you would easily realize and understand that everything created is fundamentally divine and must be infinite since it is descended from Me, has originated from Me and must again return to Me.
The body, a material tool during your life span, is composed of the same noblest, most sublime elements of My spiritual self as are soul and spirit. However, these elements are bound in matter and coerced to manifest only in the manner allowed by their momentary arrangement.
These most subtle spiritual elements, which help in the building of the bodies already in the womb, also struggle for perfection, completion. Expressing their tendency in the form of the body, in so far as a plastic (well-defined) form can express a spiritual principle, they seek, through their calling in human life, to supplement what higher spiritual elements in the soul will then develop further spiritually.
hey are the helpers, the collaborators in the great spiritual building of a perfected divine idea; just as no architect can build a house on his own, but requires a thousand hands which, however, mind you, do not work in a machine-like manner, but which likewise, again directed by other intelligences, help to execute the entire edifice.
Thus it is always the formative, creative forces which work in man, as well as in everything created: in the inert rock, the vegetating plant and the animal kingdom endowed with self-awareness, which contribute towards the ennoblement, the refinement of the whole. On the other hand, the kind and species is still subject to a thousand other diverse influences where the capabilities originally bestowed on them cannot reach perfection. And so everywhere, despite the common gender and origin, the end results will be as diverse as there are created beings in the entire space of creation.
The soul, as an offshoot or descendant of a great fallen light-bearer, first had to have an appropriate envelopment and, furthermore, a higher spiritual principle implanted into it. This drives it to not only complete its education here but to serve, after the shedding of any mortal envelopment, as the basis for a spiritual world.
Therefore, the soul of the smallest infusorian, just as that of man, is always urged to first fulfill its life’s purpose here, in keeping with its envelopment and an unrealized Spiritual which you call “instinct” or nature”, which opens the way to perfection in other forms and under other conditions.
The spirit in man is the same as that in the last rock, but there it is confronted with a more orderly organization, which does not oppose its actual sphere of action so much, but is even created to follow it in all its endeavors
Thus it is not true that man alone was endowed with a spirit-spark of Myself, for the divine spark is in everything, only there the body is more adapted to the Spiritual and completely conforms to the greatest expansion of the spiritual forces.
So you see, body, soul and spirit are carriers of My divine spark. (Secrets of life, chap. 22)
