The human race. A species that inhabit the third dimensional plane that are distinguishable from other life forms by general appearance, manner reasoning and consciousness. In the world of matter, man is embarked on a pilgrimage to fulfill himself, acquit himself, and express those gifts to which he has been endowed, so that others can be enriched for his presence on earth.
Primarily man is a spirit with a body, not a body with a spirit. The body is subservient to the superior spirit. The whole purpose of earthly life is to provide the training for the indwelling spirit, so that through a variety of experiences it can be matured, it can fit itself, it can prepare for the day of liberation brought by death to start its real career.
