can we somehow relate the concept of biorhythms to the Gnostic teachings?
For those who don't know the concept: https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Biorhythm
In short, there are three factors (physical, emotional, intellectual) and according to their current value we are more or less capable of certain things.For example, if my physical value is high during a certain period of days, I can perform slightly better in sports, etc. And the same goes for the intellectual and emotional values in regard to the according capabilities.
I did observe myself for a few years now in relation to those factors and I have to say that these rhythms are accurate. As an example, very often I noticed that I've went through phases where I was emotionally unstable and frustrated by minor issues. Then, when looking up the factors for those phases, I realized that the curve for the emotional rhythm was at it's low point.
So, having any doubt cleared regarding the validity of the rhythms, I now wonder how this correlates to the Gnostic Path?
What is immediately visible, is the correspondence between the three main rhythm factors and the three brains of our physical bodies (the motor-instinctive brain corresponding to the physical factor and the other two are self-explanatory).
The more intriguing idea for me is: Do the three biorhythm factors feed our egos? That is:
- If my physical value is high, are those egos, that use the motor-instinctive brain, more active and leech more energy?
- If my intellectual value is high, do the egos related to the intellectual brain abuse the respective brain more?
- If my emotional value is high, will the respective egos cause stronger emotional rollercoaster rides within me?
I would love to exchange opinions with other students and instructors. It seems to be a valuable tool for self-observance, which could show the user which brains/egos should be treated more carefully during certain days. Also, there could be correspondences to more subtle bodies and maybe also to the use of tattvas.
I am looking forward to your thoughts and guidelines.
