5. Structure of the Human Organism and Structure of the Absolute
5:1. Man is not a body. Man is a consciousness (a soul) embodied into a material body for a limited period of time.
5:2. The organism (but not the body!) of incarnate man is multidimensional. (It should be noted that the “seven bodies” scheme, which is described in some books, is methodologically wrong. It would be more correct to talk about a potential representation of every human in all principal layers of the multidimensional Absolute; it is this potential that man has to realize. By the way, this is the concept described in the Bible as likeness of man to God — God in the aspect of the multidimensional Absolute.
5:3. The above said may be easier to understand if one considers the scheme for studying the structure of the Absolute presented at the end of this book.
This scheme is not so easy to understand since it is impossible to illustrate adequately in picture the multidimensionality of space. Thus, in order to understand it, one needs to keep in mind that each layer of multidimensionality shown on the scheme as lower, in reality is located deeper on the multidimensional scale. And the deeper the layer the subtle it is.
The Abode of the Creator is located in the deepest, that is the subtlest energy layer of the multidimensional Absolute. This is where we should seek Him.
And the refinement of the consciousness (starting with mastering the regulation of the emotional sphere) is the methodologically correct direction of work here.
5:4. Further esoteric work may consist in learning to move with the concentration of the consciousness between all layers of this scheme (not in imagination but in the real multidimensional space), like one moves with the concentration of the consciousness inside the body.
5.5. This entire educational process of ours (including both theoretical and practical studies, also exams) is conducted under the guidance of the Holy Spirit; He leaves no one without His attention and His help, and nothing can happen that would be beyond His awareness or out of His control.
