Just a wee supplemental from the Ol' Wisdom
To add here Keyward in to the Light of Bradford's
Beam recent quite Strong and Efficient...
(Too bad for you Peter, you've been surrounded by 1 Man!)

...Notice at the end below how the Self,
The I AM is asserted through the negative form...
Fascinating when we consider that it is a B.C. stance....

Enjoy!

Janaka, Emperor of Videha, rose from his lounge, humbly approached Yajnavalkya and said: Salutation to you, O Yajnavalkya. Please instruct me. Yajnavalkya said: Your Majesty, as one who wishes to go a long distance would procure a chariot or a ship, even so you have fully equipped your mind with so many secret names of Brahman. You are also honoured and wealthy; you have studied the Vedas and heard the Upanishads. But do you know where you will go when you are released from this body? Venerable Sir, I do not know where I shall go.

Yajur Veda, Brihadaranyaka Upanishad IV, II-Concerning The Self, 1

Then I will tell you where you will go. Tell me, venerable Sir.

Yajur Veda, Brihadaranyaka Upanishad IV, II-Concerning The Self, 1

The person who is in the right eye is named Indha. Though he is Indha, people call him by the indirect name Indra; for the gods are fond of indirect names and hate to be addressed directly.

Yajur Veda, Brihadaranyaka Upanishad IV, II-Concerning The Self, 2

The person who is in the left eye is his wife, Viraj (matter). The akasa that lies within the heart is their place of union. Their food is the lump (pinda) of blood in the heart. Their wrap is the net-like structure in the heart. The path on which theymove from sleep to waking is the nerve that goes upward from the heart; it is like a hair split into a thousand parts. In the body there are nerves called hita, which are placed in the heart. Through these the essence of our food passes as it moves on. Therefore the subtle body (Taijasa) receives finer food than the gross body (Vaisvanara).

Yajur Veda, Brihadaranyaka Upanishad IV, II-Concerning The Self, 3

Of the illumined sage who is identified with Prajna in deep sleep the east is the eastern vital breath (prana), the south is the southern vital breath, the west is the western vital breath, the north is the northern vital breath, the upper direction isthe upper vital breath, the direction below is the nether vital breath and all the directions are all the vital breaths. This self is That which has been described as 'Not this, not this.'

That the Stars make sense to the Gardner and Farmer as well as the Human soul. Thought and the vast distances of the cosmos are the nightly playground of the Astral body. This is nourishement. That new thoughts arise, that we see the changing face of the world and can grow in wisdom and Love, is nourishment. That we can understand what the organ of the heart is and defy people who lazily have accepted the heart as a mere pump is due totally to Dr. Steiner and Dr. Steiner alone.

Bradford concludes;

That a heart is built on the four directions of space and is the spiritual compass of the soul, the navigational gyroscope of the Spirit and anchors not only the directions of N.S.E.W. in the core of the human being; Not only places the incarnating human being into geography; but greater still anchors the soul in the Bull - The Lion - The EAGLE/Dove - and The Angel that distinctly divide the constellations. This amazing Nurture/Angelic core with streaming circulation that is larger than the circumference of the Earth is wisdom and nourishment. That these four pivotal constellations link to the Sun and how the Four Seasons unfold is part of the mystery of the heart is a contribution to Intelligence. That the Four NT writers reveal aspects and qualities of observation connected to Luke, Matthew, Mark and John, reflects the mighty human incarnation where the Christ wore a human heart. The heart is a mystery of the navigational gyroscope built upon the Angelic Wisdom in the human I.

In the movie "Return to Me" we have an intimate outline of sharing the higher organ of Angelic navigation, the transplanted Heart.

"When Bob Rueland's young wife, Elizabeth dies, her heart is donated to a waiting recipient. Later, Bob meets another woman and falls in love with her. He realizes that destiny has taken a hand in his life when he discovers that his new love was the recipient of his late wife's heart."

The sublime understanding of Angels and the Dead is reduced to such dull words, as " He realizes that destiny has taken a hand in his life when he discovers that his new love was the recipient of his late wife's heart." Now, because we are so narrow, clogged up and intimately dull, we fail to see the whole aspects of organ rejection and the intimacy of wearing someone elses heart. How has it come about that we try to share organs, to live longer? That certain death lay on one side of the equation and Angelic Wisdom on the other has asked humanity to think deeply into things. This we do not do and we fail again, and again and again..be it ever so humble that ART tries.

It would be great if our Michael School were able to examine the depth of things and SEE the hidden values. But we lack directional and navigational insights, we can hardly link two concepts together. Organs for any human being are contributions from the planetary system, Lungs=Mercury; Gall=Mars; Heart=Sun; Spleen, kidneys, bladder, all are uniquely fitted and built for ONE Karma ownership.

The Immune system and our destiny are wisely organized into the well knit human being. We may incarnate in families with heart, or cancer dispositions but our own karma tells us that we have issues that the planets themselves have inscribed, from how we last used our bodies to serve soul or spirit; Or NOt! Reincarnation shouts at us, when we look at organ rejection and the inscripted code of the stars that we carry in our organs. We do not want to imagine or think that our previous karma has given us both opportunity and issues to deal with. We love it when it all remains meaningless and gibberish. The wisdom of the world is so rich that we remain, mostly, cowards hiding in Poltically Correct Errors.

"Does a person lead a normal life after a transplant?

"After a heart or heart-lung transplant, patients must take several medications. The most important are those to keep the body from rejecting the transplant. These medications, which must be taken for life, can cause significant side effects, including hypertension, fluid retention, tremors, excessive hair growth, and possible kidney damage. To combat these problems, additional drugs are often prescribed.

"A transplanted heart functions differently from the old one. Because the nerves leading to the heart are cut during the operation, the transplanted heart beats faster (about 100 to 110 beats per minute) than the normal heart (70 beats per minute). The new heart also responds more slowly to exercise and doesn't increase its rate as quickly as before.

"A patient's prognosis depends on many factors, including age, general health, and response to the transplant. Recent figures show that 73 percent of heart transplant patients live at least 3 years aftersurgery. Nearly 85 percent of patients return to work or other activities they like. Many patients enjoy swimming, cycling, running, or other sports.

"As noted, 60 percent of patients who receive combined heart-lung transplants survive at least 1 year. Fifty percent live at least 3 years."

The new heart also responds more slowly to exercise and doesn't increase its rate as quickly as before.

Bradford comments;

When we (anybody with cognition) looks at the number of heart beats a minute established as an average, 70 beats in humans, (very different for a sparrow) we come upon the reason why certain posts get re- reviewed.

Why? Because our eyes and thoughts do not connect the dots, nor do they set us off on tangents to see how things connect. Interest is lacking. Time. Selfishness. Blank spaces in the mind; Shere boredom that another long winded, convoluted piece of Poetic drivel is coming out of Bradford. But I admire the profound work of Science, done by Spiritual Science. If you build your medical as well as Educational thoughts on Spiritual Science you get deeper into reality. Thinking is the only Guru, Objective, discerning and encompassing thinking, is the only safe guide and that is what is offered out of Spiritual Science.

"But even now we have not a complete picture of man. We have omitted all that is connected with the organs in the breast-organisation, with heart, and lungs which play an active part in the breathing and circulation of the blood. Here an entirely new element is manifest, the element of rhythm. Inbreathing and outbreathing go on in rhythmic flow and this is continued on into the rhythm of the blood as measured by the pulse. The constant relationship between the two, between respiration and the pulse, is 1 : 4. To every breath there are 4 pulse-beats; in other words, if man draws 18 breaths a minute, there are 72 beats of the pulse to a minute. If such is not the case, there is a disturbance in the rhythm which is invariably a symptom of illness.

http://www.transintelligence.org/articles/The%20Human%20Organism.htm

"Let us for a moment consider, in numbers, the laws that emerge in connection with this relation of breath to pulse beats. We begin with the 18 breaths a minute and now calculate the number of breaths drawn in the course of a day. In an hour, therefore, we draw 18 X 60 breaths, that is to say, 1,080. During the course of a day we draw 1,080 X 24=25,920 breaths. A healthy man, therefore, draws 25, 920 breaths in the course of 24 hours. But we find this number again if we turn to the world of stars.

"At the vernal equinox the Sun stands in a definite constellation. But in the course of time the position of the Sun changes, until finally it has passed through the whole of the twelve constellations of the Zodiac at the time of the vernal equinox and is standing once again in its first position.

"Calculated in years, this progression of the Sun at the vernal equinox through the whole Zodiac is found to be twenty-five thousand and some hundred years. This period was known as the Platonic Cosmic Year. This shows us how precisely through the breath, through rhythm, man is linked with cosmic phenomena, especially with the Sun. The cosmic nature of man is here revealed. Ana many more relationships of this kind could be enumerated."

http://www.doyletics.com/arj/cometsto.htm

"Now for some arithmetic of life. Shouldn't be too difficult, if you made it through the organic chemistry above. We breathe on the average 18 breaths a minute. That multiplies out to 25,290 breaths per day. The average human lives to 72 and multiplying that by 360 days in a year, you also get 25,290 days. "We take in as many breaths per day as we have days in our human life." Coincidence, or deep truth?

[page 267, 268] But a day, too, is in a certain sense a breathing. One day is also a breath. When I go to sleep, I exhale my soul, and I draw it back in again when I awake: exhalation, inhalation. I exhale the spiritual and inhale it again. This rhythm in my breathing I therefore have throughout my life on earth in sleeping and waking. This is most interesting: 25,290 breaths per day; 25,290 days in the average human life.

"Let's proceed to look at what constitutes a year in the Earth's life. The Earth is like a top spinning on the ground. We've all seen a top spinning: at first it is completely vertical and then the top's axis begins to spin around the vertical in an activity called precession. The Earth precesses on its axis as well, which effect could be plotted by the ancients by carefully charted the constellation in which the Sun rose at the time of the vernal equinox (the Spring day of equal daylight and dark). This made a complete circle through the constellation in exactly 25, 290 years.

[page 268] "It is the same ratio. Even the cosmic rhythm harmonizes with the faster rhythms of breathing and blood circulation. Just imagine how man stands within the cosmos! He is really a child of the universe. The cosmos is his original father and mother.

"The days of the week were named after the planets as originally named by the ancients, which included the Sun and Moon under the rubric of planet. We can easily recognize SATUR-day, SUN-day, and MON-day, and with the help of foreign languages can recognize Tuesday is MARS-day (in French, MAR-di), Wednesday as MERCURY-day (in German, WOTAN-day; French, MERCRE-di), Thursday as THORS-day or JUPITER-day (in French, JEU-di), and Friday as VENUS-day (in French, VENDRE-di). In the course of every week we progress through the planets which are our heritage. We also progress through the entire evolution of the Earth, rightly understood, which proceeds from Old Saturn, Old Sun, Old Moon, Earth [includes Mars, Mercury], Jupiter and Venus. Coincidence, or deep truth?

[page 278] "Hence, the days of the week are named after the planets. Why is that? Because these names originated at a time when people still knew that man is dependent on the universe. Through the very fact of being alive, all the planets have an influence on us. The days of the week were named accordingly. Today this is called superstition, but calling it superstition is nothing but ignorance. Actually, tremendous wisdom is contained in the naming the days of the week. Yes, gentlemen, in all these matters there lies a tremendous wisdom.

"Another realm in which coincidence or deep truth lies to be discovered is in the association of certain metals with the planets. One can find these listed in any book of astrology and their very presence there is enough to relegate this knowledge to the realm of superstition. How did these associations get started? Was it due to some vision of a mystic long ago? Well, it turns out to have been much simpler. These associations came about because the ancients observed that some people sick with a typhoid-like illness recovered and others didn't. Over time they began to notice that those who survived, had the illness at a time when the rays from Venus could not fall upon the sick ones. They experimented with various metals and found that copper helped the patients in the same way that blocking the light of Venus did -- those treated with copper recovered. They made the connection that something in the Earth, namely copper, acted to block the rays of Venus from penetrating the Earth and reaching the person. By extension of this process they found the other elements in the Earth that blocked the influences of the other planets as well. Below is compilation of the planets, elements, and sicknesses the elements are useful for healing.

Mercury - mercury - syphilis
Venus - copper - typhoid
Jupiter - tin - eye diseases
Saturn - lead - bone diseases
Mars - iron - blood diseases, anemia
Moon - silver - labor in pregnancy

"If one studies plants, they will find plants which contain minute quantities of these various elements in their leaves which can then be used for medicinal effect. The Benedictine monks were masters at the art of using these elements for a curative effect, but their work was eventually suppressed by the Church as being un-scientific. One can scarcely locate information about the elements contained in leaves in any scientific book extant, up until now.

[page 300] "This is how healing is related to what can be known about plants. You can see that today things are no longer in order when even the thickest book on botany, although containing all kinds of information, nevertheless lacks the most important instruction medical men should have. There is no mention in these books of the metals that are dissolved in blossoms or roots. If at all, they are noted only in passing. This is a most important point, however, because it shows us that a plant that still contains copper today, for example, is related in its growth process to the planet Venus; it actually opposes the force of Venus and develops it own Venus force by absorbing copper into itself.

"This knowledge of which plants to use can be understood if one simply pictures the human being in its inverted relationship to the plant world. If you do this, you will be able remember which portions of a plant are most likely to be helpful for certain illnesses.

[page 301] "One must realize the following, for example. One must start with illnesses that affect the human abdomen. If one has such an abdominal illness, one comes to know that the substances present in the blossoms or the highest leaves of plants are especially helpful. Good remedies can be produced for illnesses of the abdominal organs by extracting certain substances from the blossoms and leaves of plants. Substances taken from the roots of plants, however, provide especially beneficial remedies for everting connected with the human head.

"If one imagines a tree whose root system is where the human brain is, and its leaves spread out down throughout the human body, one would have a really good metaphor for the human nervous system."
