Abd-ru-shin, the author of the Grail Message, wrote: “The earthly body of each human being is in every respect closely linked with that soil upon which he was born. This is in accordance with the Law of Creation governing all matter… Only that part of this earth gives the body exactly what it needs to blossom forth properly and remain vigorous.
That a close link exists between man and the soil upon which he was born is already evident in the multitude of races and ethnicities that populate various regions of the globe. They each possess unique physical characteristics: height, skin colour, shape of eyes and nose… adapted to the living conditions of their environment and beneficial to their health. In each of these regions, Nature offers specific foods to the inhabitants: fatty meats and fish in the Arctic North to help Eskimos withstand the rigorous climate; fruits rich in sugar in tropical zones as energy foods easy to digest in the local heat, and so on.
What applies to human beings also applies to animals and even to plants. Each plant thrives in a particular soil and cannot be transplanted to another type of soil because the ‘food’ available therein would not suit it. For instance, azaleas flourish in a soil rich in acidic minerals but wither in alkaline soil.
