It shows that through the intimate connexion between the mind and body, the former must at all times, and to an extent inconceivable by the thoughtless, influence the latter; and that unless this inward principle be disciplined, purified, enlightened, vainly must we look for the harmony between the two, so necessary for human enjoyment.
