Great comments my friends. And Dan you have more of a muse than you give yourself credit for.
Let us start with the first part of the assignment:
Fill in the blanks:
"The Master has power of rejuvenation and life extension because he understands the reason the average person must die. That reason is _______."
Now there were several reasons given related to the causes of aging such as entropy, etheric or cell deterioration. Yes, there are a number of reasons we age and working with them can increase health and give some life extension, but will not lead to rejuvenation through a spiritual endowment. To achieve this, first the principle must be understood as to why we die, even if one is a health and fitness nut.
There were several answers circling around the principle. I may miss a few but Dan came very close with:
"That reason is life in the body has become limited in its current form and circumstance and reaches a dead-end in its progression."
Ruth used a key word related to the principle, which is "crystallization."
Yes, we reach a dead end and crystallize, but why does this happen? Why does it occur to the extent that the soul ends the life of the pilgrim as an act of mercy?
Let us get this clear and we will move on to the rest of the paragraph.
The quote below contains a hint for the second blank.
"Every composer knows the anguish and despair occasioned by forgetting ideas which one had no time to write down."
-- Hector Berlioz (1803 - 1869)
