The whole body makes demands, but there must be a head in charge

May 7th 2021
When we study human beings, we see that everything within them makes demands – the stomach asks for food; the ears ask for sounds; the eyes ask for light and colour; and the mouth, nose, and sexual organs all ask for something too. So, the whole body makes demands, which is wonderful, marvellous and natural. But there must be a head in charge of all these demands to see if it can satisfy them, otherwise there will be chaos. People will eat and drink too much or not enough, they will overexpose themselves to heat or cold; they will not hear or see the dangers. So, it is good that the body clamours for what it needs, but only as long as the head is there to guide it, and decide when to accept, when to refuse and how much to give. Demands and requests come from all sides, but the head must always be there, in order to distribute everything according to divine rules and proportions.
