01 What Physical Destiny Includes

Physical destiny is everything that affects flesh and blood and nerves.

It includes the features, frame and fabric of the physical body, the skin, the outer organs of sense and of action, and the inner organs of the generative, respiratory, circulatory and digestive systems. It also includes all physical causes that affect the body agreeably or otherwise.

Physical circumstances that carry with them opportunity or the lack of it, environment of all kinds, food and the means of work or of leisure, are physical destiny. It includes, moreover, birth, family connections, health, money and the need of it, the span of life and manner of death of the body.

Group destiny affects those who are drawn together into families or held together by social, political or religious ties.

Men see the world, but not the causes that bring about what they see. Upon examination into the factors which make up the race, environment, features and habits of even a single man, it is wonderful how these factors were worked together as the exteriorizations of so many conflicting thoughts.

It is difficult to follow the thoughts which elementals as nature units had to build into these healthy, diseased or deformed bodies, and into the daily events amidst which people exist, as well as into the epochal facts that mark periods in their common history. Though the real causes producing these results will not be seen at once, what can be understood is the law of thought, as destiny, according to which they are produced.

The entire physical world is made up of exteriorized parts of human thoughts.

Not only the direct and intended results of human action, but the physical facts generally attributed to the gods of religions are exteriorized human thoughts.

Thoughts are produced by the thinking of the doer-in-the-body concerning objects of nature; and they are the cause of all physical acts, objects and events. These physical results are not always intended. Usually they are not, and would be avoided if that were in the power of the person who issued the producing thought.

Neither the creator of the thought nor any other being can stop the further exteriorizations of a thought once it has been exteriorized in part.
