After the Fall from grace, when the crystal cord and the threefold flame were reduced and man was no longer able to nourish his four lower bodies with light from the God Presence, with prana, and with certain fruits “of trees yielding seeds” that contained cosmic energies, he was obliged to “eat the herb of the field”[1] as a secondary source of light and prana. As man’s density increased, he looked to animal life for his sustenance; not satisfied with the herb of the field, he killed and ate creatures who, like himself, were unable to draw their daily strength directly from the universal Source.

  1. Gen. 3:18.
