|We all know the
limitations of our physical body. Its sense have a limited range of light and sound
perceptions and also has the effect of gravity which is measurable in G units.
Thesize of the physical body is alsolimited by its physical
structures and dimensions.
The second body is called the ethericbody and usually is
the same size as the first body. The second body is like collection of vapors.
The etheric body lives for 12 days after the death of the
physical body and then withers away.
The etheric body can increase in size and also shrink. When
a man is afraid the second body shrinks in size and when one is happy it expands.
In meditation one sometimes experiences that the body has
expanded and filled the whole room or even the whole atmos- phere.
These are the expressions of the second body that are being
perceived by the conscious mind.
