I am aware that these teachings stress the unimportance of the physical body for spiritual development. (Other than keeping it healthy.)
Still, there must be some kind of karmic significance to being physically "undersized" or "oversized."
Samael Aun Weor speaks about the strong physical forms of Jesus and John the Baptist (I believe it was John the Baptist, anyway.)
This must be due to their good karma (or lack of karma).
Are there any defects we may want to search for within ourselves based on our physical body types? For instance, if we are underweight or overweight?
It should be stated that overweight people are not automatically "gluttonous"... Or at least not more so than anyone else.
Are our body types related to our internal balance of the three Gunas?
Another thing I don't understand is... Isn't the physical and external supposed to be a reflection of the internal?
There are plenty of beautiful people in the world who exist at a very low level of being... And correspondingly, "unattractive" people who could exist at a very high level of being.
Obviously,, this is not cut and dry...
Master Samael was himself a handsome man physically, and obviously existed at a very high level of being.
I have often that the Being creates some people to be physically beautiful as a challenge to them to not get distracted by such trivialities and allow them to feed the ego.
I am not saying this was the case with Master Samael... I believe he was evolved far past the point of being lulled to sleep by physical appearances, whether they were his own or someone else's...
