Dear Ones,

At first I thought that Arthur E. Powell was talking about reincarnation in the passage quoted below. Now I see he is talking about the physical and subtle bodies we have in any one incarnation. These are diverse energies at play in us.

BODIES OF MAN
by Arthur E. Powell

“All the various bodies of man should be regarded as casings or vehicles, enabling the Self to function in some definite region of the universe. Just as a man may use a carriage on land, a ship on the sea, a balloon in the air, to travel from one place to another, and yet in all places remain himself, so does the Self, the real man, utilise his various bodies, each for its appropriate purposes, yet remains all the time himself no matter in what vehicle he may be functioning at any given moment. Relatively to the man, all these bodies are transient, they are his instruments or servants; they wear out and are renewed, time after time, and adapted to his varying needs, and his ever-growing powers.”
