1. GC: You will have before you the members of the Glad Helpers gathered here. You will give at this time the first of a series of discourses on the endocrine system in the human body, presenting this information in such a way as will aid us in understanding the functions of each of the seven major glandular centers in relation to other glands in the system; heredity, temperament, character, environment, physical, mental and spiritual growth and expression. You will answer the questions, as I ask them:

2. EC: Yes, we have the group as gathered here; their purposes, their desires. In giving that as may be understandable in the study of man, - man then as the inception and conception into that FROM the purpose, desire, and its relationships to the universe and universal consciousness, - it will be well to follow - in the first - what the happenings are in conception; the growth and the determining factors as to that growth, - spiritually, mentally, physically - by and through the word of that Creator.

3. Man was given the ability to create through self a channel through which the manifestations of spirit might be made manifest in a material world. As is observed in such, there needs be first that of desire, purpose. It is known as a fact that this may be wholly of the carnal or animal nature on the part of even one, and yet conception may take place; and the end of that physical activity is written in that purpose and desire.

4. Then it is evident that there is the ideal, as well as the partial or whole carnal force, that may be manifested or exercised in and through such activities, - as to bring a channel of mental, spiritual and material expression in the earth.

5. The ideal manner, first, is that there may be a channel through which the spirit of truth, hope, divine knowledge and purpose, may be made manifest.

6. What then, ye may ask, are the spiritual, mental and physical variations that may take place under the physical activities for varied expressions?

7. It may be seen that from the same source, even at the same period of conception, there may come quite varied expressions or characteristics in the INDIVIDUAL expression manifested.

8. Desire, first, creates certain forces about which there is a physical nucleus that is the pattern of the universe; with a number. Thence it is given by some sages that each entity, each expression in a material experience has its number. Yet the more often there is the "guess" or mistake as to what physically caused there to be a number for an individual entity. There may be all the variations possible represented in thy digits from one to nine. This means the variations of the positive and negative influences or the neurones or electrons, or forces that form that vibration upon which that individual entity WILL or DOES vibrate at its period or source of conception. And each relationship of its vibration to the universe is relative, according to its number, in relationships to influences and environs, heredity as well as those influences which are a part of its conscious experience.

9. Thus the greater unison of purpose, of desire, at a period of conception brings the more universal consciousness - or being - for a perfect or equalized vibration for that conception.

10. As an illustration of such (that this may be wholly - or in part, by some - understood): When Hannah desired that there be an expression that God, the Universal Consciousness, had not forgotten that there were prayers and alms offered, was there wholly the lack of selfishness? or was there the shadow of jealousy?

11. Then we find there was the promise of the dedication and the purposes, that this expression would be wholly given the Lord, ever. Yet it brought into being an entity, though dedicated as few - yea, as none other individually - to the Lord, unable of himself to give that expression which would keep his own offspring in the SAME vibration!

12. Thus we see the RELATIVE relationships of the electrons, the neurones, the positive and negative forces brought into being at the period when there begins the OPPORTUNITY of conception.

13. Then, when such takes places, - no matter as to what may be the vibrations that are set by the union of body, of mind and of purpose or spirit at such a period (for, to be sure, these are as varied as the individual), - there remains the IDEAL manner.

14. But - ye are asking - what physically takes place? Is it a physical activity of a gland, an impulse, a heartbeat, that becomes an influence for activity through the body so conceived?

15. The cord that is eventually known or classified as the pineal is the first movement that takes place of a physical nature through the act of conception; determining eventually - as we shall see - not only the physical stature of the individual entity but the MENTAL capacity also, and the spiritual attributes.

16. We would rest for the period.
