There is naught but energy, for God is life. Two energies meet in man, but other five are present. For each is to be found a central point of contact. The conflict of these energies with forces and of the forces 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.
This Law can be resolved into certain basic statements which can be tabulated as follows:
Pg. 139 The objectives intrinsically in themselves have an effect upon that towards which man is striving. This is a thought warranting careful consideration. Remember these are only generalizations. No aspirant at any stage is perfectly clear cut in his endeavor until after the third initiation. Men are at all imaginable stages of development.
The Centers and the Glandular System
The centers, as you know, govern the endocrine system which, in its turn, controls the seven major areas of the physical body and is responsible for the correct functioning of the entire organism, producing both physiological and psychological effects.
The glandular system is a replica in miniature of the septenary constitution of the universe and the medium of expression and the instrument of contact for the seven ray forces, the seven Spirits before the Throne of God. Around this at present unrecognized truth the medicine and the healing methods of the future civilization will be built.
The glands constitute a great relating system in the body. They bring all parts of the physical vehicle into relation with each other. They also relate the man to the etheric body—both individual and planetary—and likewise to the blood stream, the carrier of the life principle to all parts of the body. There are four major agents of distribution to be found in the physical body.
The four major agents of distribution are all complete in themselves. They are closely interrelated and all producing both physiological and psychological results according to their potency, the response of the centers to the higher inflow, the point in evolution achieved, and the free expression or the reverse, of the incoming energies. These four agents of distribution of energy are:
Pg.142 CENTERS GLANDS
Head center…………………………….. Pineal Gland
Center between eyebrows (Ajna Center) Pituitary body
Throat center…………………………… Thryoid gland
Heart center…………………………….. Thymus gland
Solar Plexus center………………………Pancreas
Sacral center……………………………..The gonads
Center at the base of the spine…………..Adrenal glands
Pg. 143. These four systems are in reality the manifestation of the four aspects of matter in its lowest or purely physical expression. There are other aspects of expression of the fundamental substance, but these are the four of greatest importance.
Each of these is essentially DUAL, and each duality corresponds to the ray of the soul or of the personality. Each is therefore both positive and negative. Each can be described as a unity of resistant force and of dynamic energy. Each is a combination of certain aspects of matter and substance—the matter being the relatively static aspect, and the substance the relatively fluid or quality-endowing agent. Their interplay and unified function are an expression of the One Life Principle. When they have reached a point of perfected fusion there then appears that “life more abundantly” of which Christ spoke, and of which we, as yet, know nothing.
Pg. 144. The analogy of the basic dualism of all manifestation is also preserved, thus making the nine of initiation—the 3, the 4 and the 2. This correspondence to the initiatory process is, however, in the reverse direction, for it is initiation into the creative third aspect, THE MATTER ASPECT. It is NOT initiation into the second or soul aspect, as is the case with the hierarchical initiations for which the disciple is preparing. It is the initiation of the soul into the experience of physical incarnation and into the art of functioning as a human being. The door into this experience is the “Gate of Cancer.” Initiation into the kingdom of God is entered through the Gate of Capricorn”. These four attributes and the three aspects of matter, plus their dual activity, are the correspondence to the four aspects of the personality and the Spiritual Triad and their dual active relationship. In this statement is hidden the key to liberation. The Spiritual Triad is the reflection of and the vehicle of the Divine Monad, the Real Self which is part of the One Life. My speculation is that those who have Capricorn rising are ready for an initiation, which one, depends on their point of evolution. Esotric Asrology by A.A. Bailey, states that the Sun sign shows the personality inclinations and expressions. The rising sign shows the goals of the soul for this life and for the future.MDB.
