The bridge between spirit and body
As it is with most drugs, the effect of nicotine – a component of tobacco – is also not only physical. The “inner well-being”, an aim of smoking, touches also the psychic level, more precisely: the deep “ego” of man, his spirit.
In this context a question arises: How is it possible that a material substance like nicotine can influence the immaterial spirit?
Naturally, the latter cannot be influenced directly by the nicotine molecules. There has to be a “connecting element” between body and soul – and this “element” is the blood, more precisely, the radiation of the blood. The blood, a “juice of very special kind” in the words of Goethe, emits radiations or waves which in their fineness resemble the radiations which emanate from the densest cloak of the soul – called “astral body”. The similarity of the radiations forms a “bridge” between the physical body and the soul, on which all information “circulates” between the material and the immaterial spheres. In this way the spirit is fully connected to the body during its incarnation on earth.
The blood radiation is dependent on the composition of the blood. Any change in this is bound to influence also the condition of the soul. It is for example well known that a drop in the blood sugar level (hypoglycaemia) evokes nervousness, a lack of vitamin B1 leads to states of anxiety, too much lead in the blood triggers depressions etc. Thus it is easy to understand that nicotine likewise changes the blood radiation, and therewith the condition of the smoker’s soul. Across the blood radiation (and followed by a similar radiation process across the finer cloaks of the soul) the spirit, too, is indirectly influenced by the effects of nicotine.
Now it could appear as if we were defenceless against all earthly influences which can reach us through the blood radiation. However, this is not the case. For the spirit likewise exerts influence on all bridges of radiation, but “from within”.
