Definitions E

EASE: is the result of the doer's reliance in destiny and in itself; a certain poise in action, irrespective of wealth or poverty, position in life or family or friends.

EGO: is the feeling of the identity of "I" of the human, due to the relation of feeling to the identity of I-ness of its Triune Self. The ego usually includes the personality of body with itself, but the ego is only the feeling of identity. If the feeling were the identity, the feeling in the body would know itself as the permanent and deathless "I" which persists through and beyond all time in unbroken continuity, whereas the human ego knows no more about itself than that it is "a feeling."

ELEMENT, AN: is one of the four fundamental kinds of nature units into which nature as matter is classified and of which all bodies or phenomena are composed, so that each element may be distinguished by its kind from each of the other three elements, and so that each kind may be known by its character and function, whether combining and acting as forces of nature or in the composition of any body.

ELEMENTAL, AN: is a unit of nature manifesting as of the element of fire, or of air, or of water, or of earth, individually; or as an individual unit of an element in a mass of other nature units and dominating that mass of units.

ELEMENTALS, LOWER: are of the four elements of fire, air, water, and earth units, here called causal, portal, form, and structure units. They are the causes, changes, maintainers, and appearances of all things in nature which come into existence, which change, which remain for awhile, and which will dissolve and vanish, to be re-created into other appearances.

ELEMENTALS, UPPER: are beings of the fire, air, water, and earth elements, out of which they are created by Intelligences of the spheres, or by the Triune Selves complete, who constitute The Government of the world. Of themselves these beings know nothing and can do nothing. They are not individual nature
elementals as nature units, in process of development. They are created out of the unmanifested side of the elements by thinking, and respond perfectly to the thinking of the Triune Selves who direct them in what they are to do. They are executioners of law, against which no nature gods or other forces can prevail. In religions or traditions they may be mentioned as arch-angels, angels, or messengers. They act by direct order of The Government of the world, without human instrumentality, although one or more may appear to give instruction to the human, or to bring about changes in the affairs of men.

EMOTION: is the rousing and expression of desire by words or acts, in response to sensations of pain or pleasure by feeling.

ENVY: is the feeling of ill-will or grudging bitterness toward a person who is or who has what one hungeringly desires to be or to have.

EQUALITY IN THE HUMAN: is that each responsible person has the right to think, to be, to will, to do, and to have, what he is able to be, to will, to do and to have, without force, pressure or restraint, to the extent that he does not try to prevent another from the same rights.

ETERNAL, THE: is the beginningless and endless, within and beyond time and the senses, not dependent on, limited or measurable by time and the senses as past, present, or future; that in which things are known to be as they are, and which cannot appear to be as they are not.

EXPERIENCE: is the impression of an act, object or event produced through the senses on feeling in the body, and the reaction as the response of feeling as pain or pleasure, joy or sorrow, or any other feeling or emotion. The experience is the essence of the exteriorization for the doer and is to teach, that the doer may extract learning from the experience.

EXTERIORIZATION, AN: is the act, object or event that was the physical impression in a thought before it exteriorized as an act, object or event on the physical plane, as physical destiny.
