Laws and Rules Enumerated---by
All disease is the result of inhibited soul life. This
is true of all forms in all kingdoms. The art of the healer consists in
releasing the soul so that its life can flow through thc aggregate of organisms which constitute any
Disease is the product of and subject to three
influences: first, a man's past, wherein he pays the price of ancient error;
second, his inheritance, wherein he shares with all mankind those tainted
streams of energy which arc of group origin; third, he shares with all the
natural forms that which the Lord of Life imposes on His body. These three
influences are called thc
"Ancient Law of Evil Sharing." This must give place some day to that
new "Law of Ancient Dominating Good" which lies behind all that God
has made. This law must be brought into activity bp thc spiritual will of man.
Let the healer train himself to know the inner stage
of thought or of desire of the one who seeks his help. He can thereby know the
source from whence the trouble comes. Let him relate the cause and the effect
and know the point exact through which relief must come.
Disease is an effect of the basic centralisation
of a man's life energy. From the plane whereon those energies are focussed proceed those determining conditions which produce
ill health. These therefore work out as disease or as freedom from disease.
Disease, both physical and psychological, has its
roots in the good, the beautiful and the true. It is but a distorted reflection
of divine possibilities. The thwarted soul, seeking full expression of some
divine characteristic or inner spiritual reality, produces, within the
substance of its sheaths, a point of friction. Upon this point the eyes of the
personality are focussed and this leads to disease.
The art of the healer is concerned with the lifting of the downward focussed eyes unto the soul, the true Healer within the
form. The spiritual or third eye then directs the healing f orce
and all is well.
The healer must achieve magnetic purity, through
purity of life. He must attain that dispelling radiance which shows itself in
every man when hc has linked the centres
in the head. When this magnetic field is established, the radiation then goes
There is naught but energy, for God is Lif e. Two
energies meet in man, but other five are present. For each is to be f ound a central point of contact. The conflict
of these energies with f orces and of f orces twixt themselves produce the bodily ills of
man. The conflict of the first and second persists for ages until the mountain
top is reached— the first great mountain top. The fight between the forces
produces all disease, all ills and bodily pain which seek release in death. The
two, the five and thus the seven, plus that which they produce, possess the
secret. This is the fifth Law of Healing within the world of form.
Let the healer concentrate the needed energy within
the needed centre. Let that centre correspond to the centre which has need. Let
the two synchronise and together augment force. Thus
shall the waiting form be balanced in its work. Thus
shall the two and the one, under right direction, heal.
When the building energies of the soul are active in
the body, then there is health, clean interplay and right activity. When the
builders are the lunar lords and those who work under the control of the moon
and at the behest of the lower personal self, then you have disease, ill health
When life or energy flows unimpeded and through right
direction to its precipitation ( the related gland ),
then the form responds and ill health disappears.
A careful diagnosis of disease, based on the
ascertained outer symptoms, will be simplified to this extent—that once the
organ involved is known and thus isolated, the centre in the etheric body which
is in closest relation to it will be subjected to methods of occult healing,
though the ordinary, ameliorative, medical or surgical methods will not be withheld.
Disease and death are the results of two active
forces. One is the will of the soul, which says to its instrument:1 draw the essence back. The other is the magnetic power of
the planetary life, which says to the life within the atomic structure: The
hour of reabsorption has arrived. Return to me. Thus,
under cyclic law, do all forms act.
The healer must seek to link his soul, his heart, his
brain and his hands. Thus can he pour the vital healing force upon the patient. This is magnetic work. It cures disease or
increases the evil state, according to the knowledge of the healer. The healer
must seek to link his soul, his brain, his heart and auric
emanation. Thus can his presence feed the soul life of the patient.
This is the work of radiation. The hands are needed not. The soul displays its
power. The patient's soul responds through the response of his aura to the
radiation of the healer's aura, flooded with soul energy.
Perfection calls imperfection to the surface. Good
drives evil from the form of man in time and space. The method used by the
Perfect One and that employed by Good is harmlessness.
This is not negativity but perfect poise, a completed point of view and divine
The healer or the healing group must keep the will in
leash. It is not will that must be used, but love.
Hearken, O Disciple, to the call which comes from the
Son to the Mother, and then obey. The Word goes forth that form has served its
purpose. The principle of mind then organises itself
and then repeats that Word. The waiting form responds and drops away. The soul
stands free. Respond, O Rising One, to the call which comes within the sphere
of obligation; recognise the call emerging from thc Ashram or from the Council
Chamber where waits the Lord of Life Himself. The Sound goes forth. Both soul
and form together must renounce the principle of life and thus permit the Monad
to stand free. The soul responds. The form then shatters the connection. Life
is now liberated, owning the quality of conscious knowledge and the fruit of
all experience. These are the gifts of soul and form combined of Life Himself.
