In the healthy condition of man, the spiritual vital force (autocracy), the dynamis that animates the material body (organism), rules with unbounded sway, and retains all the parts of the organism in admirable, harmonious, vital operation, as regards both sensations and functions, so that our indwelling, reason-gifted mind can freely employ this living, healthy instrument for the higher purpose of our existence.
Hahnemann believed that the purpose of the regulatory systems of our organism is to maintain harmonious, vital operation of the senses and functions of the body – or in other words, create a state of health. And that with our health, we are able to focus on the higher purpose of our existence.
Hahnemann is no way a sage here; he offers us no counsel as to what our higher purpose may be. That is for us to discover! However, it does highlight how important health is, as well as the journey to health, and that when we are feeling vital and well, we have the energy to apply ourselves to this higher purpose, whatever it may be.
