Humanize the Earth: The Inner Look VII & VIII
This builds on chapters's I, II & III and chapters IV, V & VI.

VII. Presence of the Force

The fifth day:
  1. When I was truly awake I scaled from comprehension to comprehension.
  2. When I was truly awake yet lacked the strength to continue the ascent, I was able to draw the Force from within myself. This Force was present throughout my body. All of the energy was present even in the smallest cells of my body, and it circulated more rapidly and more intensely than my blood.
  3. I discovered that the energy concentrated in certain points of my body when they were active and was absent when they were not.
  4. During illness the energy was either lacking or it accumulated precisely in the affected areas of my body. But if I was able to reestablish the normal flow of the energy, many illnesses began to recede.
Some peoples knew this, and through various procedures that seem strange to us to­day, they were able to reestablish the flow of the energy.
Some peoples knew this, and they were able to communicate this energy to others, pro­ducing “illuminations” of comprehension and even physical “miracles.”

VIII. Control of the Force

The sixth day:
  1. There is a way of directing and concentrating the Force that circulates through the body.
  2. In the body are points of control upon which depend what we know as movement, emo­tion, and idea. When the energy acts in these points, it gives rise to motor, emotional, and intellectual manifestations.
  3. Depending on whether the energy acts more internally or superficially in the body, the states of deep sleep, semi-sleep, or wakefulness arise. Surely, the halos that surround the bodies or heads of the saints (or the great awakened ones) in religious paintings al­lude to this phenomenon of the energy which, on occasion, manifests more externally.
  4. There is a point of control of being-truly-awake, and there is a way of bringing the Force to this point.
  5. When the energy is led to this point, all the other points of control move in a new way.
Upon understanding this and hurling the Force to this superior point, my entire body felt the impact of an immense energy. This energy struck powerfully within my conscious­ness, and I ascended from comprehension to comprehension. But I also observed that if I lost control of the energy, I could descend to the depths of the mind. Then I remembered the legends of “heavens” and “hells,” and I saw the dividing line between these mental states.
