Yeah, right.  Sounds like ancient New Age Wisdom.
Chuck the heretic  

In a message dated 8/6/2010 7:32:26 A.M. Central Daylight Time, writes:

The pupil is generally taught that the manifestations are three
in  number. Namely:

1. Universal Mind.

2. Universal  Force.

3. Universal Substance or  Matter.

But really there are but two manifestations,  Mind and Matter.
What we call Force is not a separate manifestation. It is  simply
certain of the lowest, or grosser grades of Mind. Force is  sim-
ply that portion of Mind which endows Matter with Form. It is
that  portion of mind which transmits the idea of Form to the
higher grades where  Consciousness dwells. Let the pupil think
and he must see that this is so.  Colour, size, shape, what are
they? Simply light vibrations which when  passed on to the Con-
sciousness give the idea of Form. And what is  vibration? It is
Force. Heat, cold, hardness,softness, varieties of taste  and
smell are all vibrations, and therefore also Force. If you  make
Force a separate mani_festation, then also you must make  those
planes of Mind which transfer the ideas of passion or  emotion,
separate manifestations.
