A PASSAGE BROUGHT TO LIFE
BETWEEN TWO GATES - A YOUNG MAN'S QUEST TOWARD BIRTH
A PASSAGE FROM CHAPTER FIFTY - THE SPIRITS OF MOTION
“The living body?” I asked. “Is that anything like the physical body?”
“The physical body is composed of physical matter, like organs, tissues, bones, and fluids. The living body, however, encompasses the vital energies that animate and sustain our physical existence,” Lumisvel said. “Allow us to demonstrate.”
I stood speechless as the figures took on shapes that were closer to recognizable human forms and began moving in an ethereal dance punctuated by energetic gestures. I understood they were offering me an interpretation of a living body in motion. First, they moved in geometric unison; then, the dancers split into groups. Some formed wide circles, while others glided in straight lines.
“Notice,” Lumisvel said, “how the living body acts as a conduit, orchestrating the vital energies that sustain and animate the physical organism.”
I watched the dance of delicate movements, following the flow of the beings emulating the motion of the life forces within the living body.
