      Basic theory of higher body development, as extrapolated
      from teachers like Gurdjieff, DeChardin, Molari, Swami
      Sivananda, and many others.

      Think of your spiritual body as a bag that is empty and
      everything in this universe as just collections of holy
      atoms. The more you do good and are good, the more of this
      sacred material you collect and the stronger and more full
      of spirituality your higher/astral/etc) body becomes. What
      is "good"? That which brings peace. And "bad" is that which
      takes peace away. When you act selflessly, you virtually
      always bring about peace in some form or other and you gain
      more of the divine energy. And when you are selfish, the
      more you tend to lose this food of the gods. And as you fill
      with these holy atoms, the lighter you get and the more and
      more the heaviness leaves you and you can ascend to higher
      and higher realms. The astral body (or whatever you like to
      call it) then can soar and transcend the limits that a flesh
      and bones body has imposed on it by nature. And eventually
      when you are so full of "IT", like a balloon that has
      overfilled, you burst, and not even an astral body can or
      does contain your essence, and you merge fully with an even
      higher body that has less limitations than the astral body
      had. And this process goes on ever after, higher body after
      higher body, until "you" are all the holy energy there is…..
      and for us, this is beyond words, description, visualization,
      thought, etc. But IT IS!

      It has been said that the average person only develops
      her/himself up to the soles of their feet. And those who have
      developed and "filled" their higher bodies are just as remote
      in being understood by the average person as a human is to
      an ant.

      It has been warned that although there is probably no better
      way to increase your quantity of this most top quality energy
      than by meditation, just one outburst of anger can take away
      100 hours of good that meditating brought. So, perhaps
      self-control to a degree of non-reactivity relative to
      whatever occurs to you physically, emotionally, or mentally
      can be the best skill that can be developed toward becoming a
      full (of holy energy – and thus more God-like) person. And so
      it is no surprise that we find awareness with discrimination
      and dispassion as the first steps in gaining a foothold on
      spiritual evolution.

      How to do this? has been answered by Swami Sivananda in his
      simple instruction to "Be good. Do good." Gurdjieff directed
      that we should "Self-remember". And a Zen master who was once
      asked what was the most important thing to do, answered
      "Attention". And when he was asked to expound on that he said
      "Attention! Attention! Attention!"

      But if you want to, you can simply shrug off all of this and
      just wait with open hands for Enlightenment to zap you and
      not "do" anything at all to develop your Self. And perhaps
      that will work for you.
