The LAW OF THREE in regards to the centers of man, body, mind, emotions, and also the instinctive, moving, sex,and two higher centers is often a concern for those beginning THE FOURTH WAY, especially for those coming from the three classic or traditional ways of THE FAKIR, THE MONK, THE YOGI.
Since these three ways are fairly familiar to those who have previously read this blog and some of the other related blogs of mine, I shall not go into these ways. Instead, I want to discuss this by giving an example that may be more familiar to many: THREE CHARACTERS FROM THE WIZARD OF OZ!
The author of the OZ BOOKS, which I had as child when I was around 6-7 years old, FRANK L. BAUM was an interesting person whose other talents and interests have faded a bit since the popular movie with Judy Garland. The movie,highly entertaining, colorful and musical, shunted aside the special things that can be found in this story.
FIRST, the three characters that concern us here: THE SCARECROW, THE TIN MAN, & THE LION. On the face of it, these characters are amusing and charming, with special problems and character traits and so on. THE SCARECROW LACKS A BRAIN. THE TIN MAN LACKS A HEART. THE LION IS COWARDLY AND LACKS 'COURAGE'. Thus we have THE THREE MAIN CENTERS: THE MIND, THE EMOTIONS, THE BODY.
They all have the PHYSICAL CENTER or BODY and can use the MOVING CENTER as the movie shows fairly well. In these three, we see the need to 'develop' these centers since from the beginning these do not function or work in them or only work inefficiently and therefore these three have to be 'transformed' or 'energized'. We see that these three 'center's in relation to 'DOROTHY' have to do battle with the 'WIZARD' plus deal with two WITCHES and a few other things. DOROTHY, of course, with her dog,TOTO, wants to get back to KANSAS from whence she was whisked by a cyclone/tornado.
I shall not delve deeper into this story but suggest merely that you read it in the original, first, on the literal level, then on the intellectual level, and then on the emotional level,etc. Try to see how the story affects you, if it does, and OBSERVE YOURSELF as you do this, especially under differing conditions, when sitting, standing, walking, lying down, etc. and when others are sure to disturb your reading or some other interruptions can occur. Be aware or you thoughts and your feelings and sense certain things in your body as you do this 'exercise'. Then try to recount everything and REMEMBER YOURSELF.
