Eating, Drinking, Breathing, and Sleeping

“Man’s body is formed from the Original Substance, and is the result of
certain motions, which first existed as thoughts of Original Substance.
The motions which produce, renew, and repair the body of man are called
functions, and these functions are of two classes: voluntary and
involuntary. The involuntary functions are under the control of the
Principle of Health in man, and are performed in a perfectly healthy
manner so long as man thinks in a certain way. The voluntary functions
of life are eating, drinking, breathing, and sleeping. These, entirely
or in part, are under the direction of man’s conscious mind; and he can
perform them in a perfectly healthy way if he will. If he does not
perform them in a healthy way, he cannot long be well. So we see that if
man thinks in a certain way, and eats, drinks, breathes, and sleeps in a
corresponding way, he will be well.”
