    • Ocorre o mesmo com o pensamento. Em ess√™ncia, o pensamento certamente n√£o √© um processo cerebral, mas sem o suporte do c√©rebro ele n√£o poderia ter seu curso terrestre. √Ä luz dessa compara√ß√£o, obt√©m-se uma concep√ß√£o correta da espiritualidade, bem como das limita√ß√Ķes f√≠sicas do pensamento humano. Em suma, meus queridos amigos, aqui na vida terrena n√£o h√° nada no homem que n√£o dependa do corpo como sustento. Carregamos nossos √≥rg√£os dentro do corpo - pulm√£o, cora√ß√£o, c√©rebro e assim por diante. Com sa√ļde normal, n√£o temos percep√ß√£o consciente de nossos √≥rg√£os internos. N√≥s os percebemos apenas quando doentes, e ainda assim de maneira muito imperfeita. Nunca podemos afirmar que possu√≠mos conhecimento de um √≥rg√£o por lhe termos olhado diretamente, a menos que estejamos estudando anatomia ‚Äď mas a√≠ n√£o estamos estudando um √≥rg√£o vivo. Nunca podemos dizer que temos a mesma vis√£o de um √≥rg√£o interno que temos de um objeto externo. √Č caracter√≠stico da vida terrena n√£o conhecermos o interior de nosso corpo por meio da consci√™ncia comum. Ainda menos um homem conhece do que ele geralmente considera de maior valor para sua exist√™ncia corporal ‚Äď o interior de sua cabe√ßa. Pois quando ele come√ßa a saber alguma coisa a seu respeito, via de regra, o conhecimento se mostra deveras desagrad√°vel ‚Äď dor de cabe√ßa e tudo o que a acompanha.
