This is a continuation of the interchange between a questioner from our Research and Study Group and William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, on the subject of biorhythms and there usefulness to us.
Questioner: Suppose you had a big decision to make or some kind of action. Would it be a good idea to check your chart and maybe time things for when you have what they call for a triple high or perhaps on triple low days put off some decisions until you are thinking better. Would that be a valid use for a chart like that?
The Council: If you choose to use a chart like that, yes, but you must use a little, how shall we say, common sense or a little discernment. You cannot rely on a cycle or a chart to make every decision or to avoid making decisions all the time. Do you understand?
The Council: The chart or the cycles represent the overall keenness. Do you understand that?
The Council: How sharp you are or how keen you are? Do you understand?
The Council: And this, of course, incorporates the three major aspects of you. Now, how strongly you are influenced by those cycles is mostly determined by you, this is in reference to exterior activities. Do you understand?
Questioner: Yes, I understand.
The Council: So, we are not saying that they are an essential thing that everybody should have. Yet we are saying that they do exist; they do influence you, and they can be used to help you, if nothing else, understand the way you are feeling at a particular time. They are important in this respect. They are part of the natural cycles of the material manifestation which you are a part of. They do influence, to a degree, the chemical reactions within the body, the intensity of those reactions and the lack of that intensity. Now, this again is another relationship to maintaining the material manifestation for the soul or maintaining the tool for the soul. When you come into the material manifestation, the soul must create a body that is compatible with the natural cycles of the material world or the material manifestation, and it just so happens that those are three cycles that most directly influence the exterior you, in other words, your relationship to your immediate world at that particular time or your immediate family or your immediate activities. Have we confused the situation or cleared it up?
Questioner: You have cleared it up.
The Council: Again, they can be useful but we would never say that spiritual growth depends on such a thing. Before you ever heard of such things, you were living a life. If you feel that after you have heard of such things it would help you to have a better day, understand your day a little better, then by all means use it. But you must realize that there are well over a hundred more cycles involved.
Questioner: I assume that these three are the more or less major cycles.
The Council: Well, it depends on what you want to consider as major. They would have the most outward effect on your day-to-day experiences.
Questioner: Would there be any other cycle of equal or greater benefit to
include in a biorhythm chart?
The Council: No, because they go down in graduated physical outward effects, so they become more subtle than what the three major rhythms or what is considered the major rhythms. Those can be used the most easily in understanding your day or your attitude for that day.
Questioner: Would this be a beneficial use of biorhythms, if you are looking for whatever spiritual benefits there are in fasting, if you are looking for these benefits, would it be a good use of biorhythms to begin a fast on a triple high? Would that help any in the fasting effort?
The Council: No. Listen to what we have said. It does not directly influence your spiritual state whatsoever. It does give you an understanding of your attitude toward a particular event at a particular time in your life. In other words, how did you receive today? How did you react to today?
Questioner: I reacted pretty good today.
The Council: Well, whatever. We are trying to point out how it could be
Questioner: Would it be all right to use the information you just gave us then as somewhat of an introduction to the charts that we make?
The Council: As long as you understand that you are not to confuse the biorhythm idea or concept with spirituality. You can be very spiritual on a very bad day. In fact, now that we think about it, maybe on an indication of a bad day you might practice a little charity towards your fellow human being. A good way to build up points. (Laughter) All joking aside now. As long as you do not attempt to sell spirituality through such devices, they can be beneficial to those who have an interest in them, but they cannot guarantee any spiritual growth at all. They are more aligned with the natural rhythms of the material manifestation.
