As we verify the functions of our Micro-cosmos, we begin examining each of them from the point of view of consciousness. Which of our functions can aid our aim to “Be,” which is indifferent to it, and which opposes it? In this tutorial we will explore this question. We will draw from the San Marco creation of man out of dust and spirit, dust representing his earthbound part and spirit his higher part. And we will see that the struggle to “Be” is a struggle between man’s Higher and Lower Self.
