The glands constitute a great relating system in the body; they bring all parts of the physical vehicle into relation with each other; they also relate the man to the Etheric body—both individual and planetary—and likewise to the blood stream, the carrier of the life principle to all parts of the body. There are consequently four major agents of distribution to be found in the physical body. They are all complete in themselves, all contributory to both the functional and the organic life of the body, all closely interrelated and all producing both physiological and psychological results according to their potency, the response of the centers to the higher inflow, the point in evolution achieved, and the free expression, or the reverse, of the incoming energies. These four agents of distribution of energy are:
THE CENTERS AND THE GLANDS
Head center Pineal gland
Ajna center Pituitary body
Throat center Thyroid gland
Heart center Thymus gland
Solar plexus center Pancreas
Sacral center The Gonads
Center at Base of Spine Adrenal glands
These three systems are very closely related to each other and constitute an interlocking directorate of energies and forces which are essentially vital, galvanic, dynamic and creative. They are basically interdependent, and upon them the entire interior health of the physical organism depends. They are responsive first to one or other of the bodies (emotional or mental), then to the integrated personality and its Ray, and finally to the Soul Ray as it begins to assume control. They are, in reality, responsible for the production of the physical body and—after birth—they condition its psychological quality, and this in its turn produces the developing physical man. They are the agents for the three divine aspects of all manifestation: Life-Quality-Appearance.
Only when these four interrelated systems are viewed as one integrated whole and as the four aspects of one vital circulatory system will the truth emerge. Only as they are acknowledged to be the four major distributing agents of the combined Rays of the individual man will the true nature of material phenomena be grasped.
