This Week’s Quotation:
There is a certain awareness of the tone in physical substance in the sense that physical substance is moved by it. And, as we noted, the heart beats, the digestion works, all the various processes of the body occur, not because of physical substance but because of the sounding of the tone in the substance which is capable of making that tone heard by the physical body, so that things happen in the physical body. Now, we may say all that happens unconsciously; nevertheless it happens. The physical body doesn’t know anything about it; just lets it happen. The mind doesn’t know anything about it either, but it’s not particularly willing to let it happen insofar as the mental function is concerned. It wants to grab hold of its own function. We call that self-activity, and it stands as a barrier to the proper development of mental substance and spiritual substance.

The Primal Tone of Life
It is the miracle of the human body that it is animated by an activating energy within itself. Within every atom of the body, subatomic particles are powered by an unseen force within them. Atoms constellate as cells that form tissues, glands, organs, bones, and muscles. The power within it all animates the body at every level.
If you ask a biologist how life animates the body, they will trace it back to processes within the systems of the body and within the cell. They can explain the function of cause and effect working in the systems of the body and within the cells until they reach the Mystery. And what is the Mystery they face? Our flesh is animated from unseen realms within itself that can’t be explained by modern science. It vibrates with the tone of life.
The tone of life creates a heartbeat within the human embryo about six weeks after conception, before the heart has formed. The tone of life continues to vibrate through the little form, developing all its parts through pregnancy and childhood.
Here is the challenge faced by the Attunement practitioner. As the child develops, the function of their physical body, and all the rest of their human function, is affected by their conscious activity. What they think and feel influences it. All too often, by the time they are an adult, there is a pattern of thought and emotion that interferes with the tone of life within them.
The underlying source of animation doesn’t change. But as consciousness becomes more and more affected by the prevailing culture, and the habits of thought and emotion within culture, interference patterns are created. The vibrations that pervade human experience are established by the person’s reactions to the world around them and their attempts to establish some kind of control in that world. This is the self-activity that Martin refers to.
Here is how Merriam-Webster defines self-activity: independent and especially self-determined activity
Through the process of Attunement, the unhealthy vibrational patterns in the human body established by self-activity can reshape and reform according to the primal tone of life vibrating at the core of the human experience. The tone of life reverberates powerfully all through the body, mind, and emotions.
The human spirit comes alive.
