" A physical body nourished on impure food will produce a correspondingly

impure astral body, whilst a physical body fed on clean food and drink

will help to purify the astral vehicle. " 

“ It is impossible to make the physical body coarse and at the same time

to organize the astral and mental bodies for finer purposes ...

neither is it possible to have a pure physical body with

 impure mental and astral bodies. All three bodies are thus inter-dependent. "

" Carnivorous diet is fatal to anything like real occult development, and those

 who adopt it are throwing serious and unnecessary difficulties in their own way, 

for flesh blood intensifies all the undesirable elements

and passions of the lower planes. "
