OSTURE and personality co-operate and harmonize. This is a
certainty statement. The former reflects the latter. Its
development improves the latter. It is an easy

sure method. Let's look into the subjec~ a little deeper.

By posture in the human is meant the most firm and upright
position one can demonstrate within the structural
framework's limitations. Even those who have a twisted or
mutilated frame can have good posture, for them. Each
person's posture is an individual problem. It might be said,"Do
the best you can with what you have."

Development of your posture can also be stated in two short
rules. leep the corners of your xouth
turned up/ leap the buttons on your chest Pointed upl That's all
there is to it. Stop and try it. See, you
pushed your bead up and pulled the chin in without even thinking
about it. Right? You even held your breath a little
longer, too. Now do it again and breathe regularly. Notice that
you are starting to do abdominal breathing for a
change. Would you say it is difficult?

Promise yourself that once every hour for a week you will pause
for just one minute and do this
beneficialexercise. After that the results will so delight you
that you are certain to continue until good posture
becomes a habit.

Now for the second step. When you sit in a chair, put the lower
part of your back against the chair. If you must
lean forward, keep the hips in contact with the back of the
chair. Adopting this position when sitting will give your
back support and permit you to relax without strain on the
abdominal and back muscles. The spine will be in its
best possible position also. Circulation will be made easier,
heart action more normal, hands more comfortable in
your lap. Talk and listen while in the sitting position with the
mid-back in contact with the chair. If the couch or
chair is too far back, find and use a cushion. Make the chair or
couch fit you, don't you try to fit your body into it.
You are more valuable and im ortant than the chair.

Where does the personality factor come into th picture? By
association. Knowing that your body is but the
vehicle thru which you must ex ress yourself at this time, you
demonstrate both your knowledge of this fact and at
the same time show respect for the body. Respect and reverence
are the cardinal points of personality. Respect
begins at home and your most immediate home is your body. You
change your world by changing yourself.

There are many who read this who will quickly thinkup exceptions
and even say, "That is too simple." Don't be
antagonistic; it harms no one but you. Who likes a fault-finder
and negator? Do you? Can you take a dare? If so,
apply these simple practices for a week as suggested. Certainly
it can't hurt you. If, .after seven days you are not
benefitted, write me in care of The ABERREE and doublt~ your
money--plus green stamps--will be refun ed.

HE SPHINX was hoary with age long before thQ oldest book of the
Bible was written, but for good reasons no
informative date of it appears in "the Word of God". All
references to theimage are phrased in wild and sensational

Ezekiel saw a whirlwind come out of the north, a great cloud, and
a fire unfolding itself.... and out of the midst
thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. Then he gives
a sensational description of the Sphinx, and has it
mixed up with the zodiac, the descriPtion of which is just as
sensational (Chap. 1: 4, 5, 15 - 21).

Daniel saw exciting scenes in a vision: The four winds of heaven
strove upon the great sea (Mediterranea0, and
four great beasts came up from the water. Then he gives a
sensational description of the Sphinx (Chap. 7:1-7).

The Sphinx played its part in Revelation. The scribe of that work
had four beasts about the throne, the first of
which was like a lion, the second like a calf, the third had a
face as a man, and the fourth was like a flying eagle.
And they .... were full of eyes, they rest not day and night,
saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which
was, and is, and is to come (Rev. 4:6-8).

Very mysterious to the man of darkness, but very simple to the
Son of Light.

The noted French mystic, astrologist, and Kabalist. Alphonse
Louis Constant, was educated for the priesthood.
He learned too much about religion to make it an attractive path
to travel, and turned aside to become a writer. He
exposed so much the church tries to keep hidden from the masses
that he was always on the edge of
excommunication and even worse because of his flaunting of papal

Constant, who wrote under the pseudonym of Eliphas Levi, was
called the last of the great
magicians and astrologers. He spent several years studying the
Kabalah, that ancient work of
occult wisdom which fascinates the student of the agelesswisdom.
The leaders of many lands
sought his aid in occult matters and instruction in the secret
arts. He wrote mostly in code
that could be understood only by initiates, and gave the world
this interesting description
of the Sphinx:

"The symbolical tetrad, represented in the ancient mysteries by
the four forms of the
Sphinx - lion, man, eagle, and bull - corresponded with the four
great elements of the
universe - fire, water, air, earth.

"These four zodiacal signs (Leo, Aquarius, Scorpio, Taurus), with
all their analogies ,
explained the Sacred WORD hidden in all sanctuaries (of the
ancient world) .... Moreover, the
Sacred WORD was never pronounced; it w as always spelt, and
expressed in Four Words, which
are the Sacred Words Yod He Vau He.p~__ History of Magic, 1853.
