The physical body that contains our spirit body, and our spirit-life, and all the elements from which other physical bodies are produced is composed largely of air, water and gases, intermingled and woven together by an intelligence that is concealed in nature, and that is working through the electromagnetic and vitochemical life elements within us. However, the spirit-life, which is us, also plays its part in the modelling and the fashioning of the physical body that is to contain it, and also those physical bodies that are to contain other spirit-lives that are journeying toward our earthland.

We have much to do with preparing the physical houses for the spirit-lives that are coming toward us, but these spirit-lives, through a law in nature, choose the avenue through which each shall enter the physical world.

We assume that we create the life that is given birth through us, but that life was created a hundred thousand centuries or more back and has been evolving toward completion through all these years, even as we are evolving toward completion.

The spirit-life that enters the physical world through a physical body of our creation does so through the law of attraction and selection, and of vibratory correspondence and, therefore, must of necessity be in some way like us.

We do not give life, but we prepare the way for the life that is evolving toward us and build the houses in which this life shall enter, and for a few brief years dwell.
