Birth And Child Life
It must not be imagined, however, that when the little body of a child has
been born, the process of birth is completed. The dense physical body has
had the longest evolution, and as a shoemaker who has worked at his trade
for a number of years is more expert than an apprentice and can make
better shoes and quicker, so also the spirit which has built many
physical bodies produces them quickly, but the vital body is a later
acquisition of the human being. Therefore we are not so expert in building
that vehicle. Consequently it takes longer to construct that from the
materials not used up in making the lining of the archetype, and the vital
body is not born until the seventh year. Then the period of rapid growth
commences. The desire body is a still later addition of composite man, and
is not brought to birth until the fourteenth year when the desire nature
expresses itself most strongly during so-called "hot" youth, and the mind,
which makes man man, does not come to birth until the twenty-first year.
In law that age is recognized as the earliest time he is fitted to
exercise a franchise.
This knowledge is of the utmost importance to parents, as a proper
understanding of the development which should take place in each of the
septenary epochs enables the educator to work intelligently with nature
and thus fulfill more thoroughly the trust of a parent than those who are
ignorant of the Rosicrucian Mystery Teaching. We shall therefore devote
the remaining pages to an elucidation of this matter and of the importance
of the knowledge of astrology upon the part of the parent.
