[From The Rosicrucian Digest August 1942]
THE ATTAINMENT OF HEALTHIT MIGHT be generally conceived that the Cathedral of the Soul has only to do with the spiritual phases of man's life. Such a conclusion would immediately raise the question as to what are these spiritual phases with which man concerns himself. Probably everyone would agree that man's presence in a cathedral, church or temple for the purpose of meditation and contemplation would constitute a spiritual act; but would not the money or the labor sincerely given to cause such a place to be erected be an equally spiritual act? There are those who are always attempting to belittle those things which do not come under their own classification of being spiritual; there are those who would say that the Cathedral of the Soul should only serve the spiritual side of man, and that an institution of this nature should not concern itself with man's physical nature. We notice that these reflections would come primarily from those who happen at the moment to be in reasonably good physical condition.
Experience has taught all of us that our maximum efficiency is not possible in times of ill health or any continued physical discomfort. Man is body and soul, and unless both are in harmony with each other there can only be incomplete manifestation of the abilities of either. Therefore, it is appropriate that while the Cathedral of the Soul directs its effort to unite on a mental or psychic plane the intent and ideals of all those who participate in its activities, thereby bringing to its participants consolation, peace, strength, fellowship and other helps that have been enumerated here from time to time, it is also most appropriate that consideration be given to the helping of man to maintain his physical body. For that reason we invite those who seek both spiritual and physical solace and help to avail themselves of the services of this Cathedral, as explained in the booklet "Liber 777" referred to above.
