Pg. 205 LAW VII
When life or energy flows unimpeded and through right direction to its precipitation (the related gland), then the form responds and ill health disappears.
This is a basic law in healing. (Here The Tibetan Master gives instruction to healers, which I am omitting. Mdb)
Effects of Under-Stimulation and Over-Stimulation of the Centers
(He repeats that diseases which are self-engendered are caused by the failure or the excess and by the over-development or the under-development of the endocrine system.Mdb)
This ductless glandular system, via the HORMONES, affects every part of the physical organism via the blood stream. It may be truly posited that when the ductless glands are perfectly balanced, there will be no diseased areas in the body. The blood stream will then be kept also in perfect condition.
Coming midway between the centers and the corresponding endocrine glands and acting as the agent for the distribution of energy, is the nervous system. Here, however difficulty is usually to be found. There is a lack of adequate flow of energy. The energy distributed by its means to the body, via the centers is UNEVENLY DISTRIBUTED. Some centers receive an undue supply while others receive an inadequate amount. Some centers are still unawakened and therefore non-receptive while others are prematurely developed and transmit too much force to the areas they govern. (The centers above the diaphragm except for the throat center are mostly unawakened. The head center begins to awaken after the 3rd initiation. Mdb)
Pg. 209. In esoteric medicine it is the cerebro-spinal aspect which governs the entire nervous system. It is through this agency that the centers work supplying the body with the needed vital energy. Thus the nervous system becomes eventually responsive, via the 7 centers to the seven major energies or the seven RAY forces. (emanating from the 7 Planetary Logoi or Gods. They form the 7 Chakras of the Lord of the solar system.Mdb)
In no human being, except a Master, are all the centers properly awakened and functioning in a balanced manner, nor are they properly related through intensive radiation. In no human being is the nervous system correctly responsive to the centers. There are two reasons for this and both are related to the cerebro-spinal system:
1. The head center is not yet awakened, or is only slowly being developed, as the disciple submits himself to training. (breathing exercises, meditation, visualization, awareness of the soul, etc. mdb)
2. The flow of energy through the head to the centers up the spine is uneven, owing to the fact that the inflow is uneven, and that the etheric web—between the centers—permits as yet only a very little energy to flow through to all the centers. (thru expansion of consciousness, & experience in life, the webs will burn up. The same can be said for the webs in the body of a Heavenly Man, our planetary God. Mdb)
It must be remembered that the life of the centers is founded, in the initial stage, upon the inherent life of the organism itself, with the focus of the emanating life to be found in the center at the base of the spine. This is a point often forgotten by esotericists. This basic center is the one through which the life of matter itself works. This is the life or energy of the Holy Spirit aspect, the third aspect of deity. Through its life each atom is fed.(Remember every atom is an entity, an evolving life, as is everything else.mdb) This process of animating the substance of the physical form is started in the prenatal stage. After birth, this type of force is aided by the inflow of planetary prana from the planetary life itself, via the SPLEEN.
Pg. 210 The spleen is the central relating organ between the inherent life of matter itself, and the inherent life in the planet.
As evolution proceeds, there is gradually added to this inherent force an inflow of “qualified” energy which is expressive of the consciousness aspect of divinity, and indicates to the esotericist the state of awareness of the man and also the ray type of his soul. This inflow comes from the second divine aspect, from the soul or the indwelling Christ (consciousness Mdb) It might therefore be stated about the two head centers that:
1. The ajna center, or the personality center, focused between the eyebrows and conditioning the pituitary body, is related to the entire life of the integrated threefold organism. Through this organism the consciousness must perforce express itself, and the physical, emotional and mental vehicles demonstrate its point in evolution. (this center directs the energy of the soul. mdb)
2. The head center (called in Hindu philosophy the thousand-petalled lotus) conditions the pineal gland and is related to the life of the soul, and after the 3rd initiation, it is related to the life of the Monad. It conveys to the centers the energy of the three major types of spiritual being of which the three forces of the personality are the REFLECTIONS or physical counterparts.
Later, energy from the spirit aspect, the first or Father aspect, will become available and will pour down through the head center to the ajna center, combining personality energy and soul energy. Then, by an act of the WILL, it is projected down the spinal column, via the alta major center, (it is at the base of the skull. Mdb) which conditions the carotid gland. As it passes down the spinal column, it vitalizes two aspects of the centers. When it reaches the basic center, it combines with the latent energy of substance itself, and you therefore have the union of all three divine energies and the manifestation in man of the three divine aspects. These combined energies then rush up the central channel in the spinal column, and the third or highest receptive aspect of the centers is energized. All the centers are thus brought into full expression and material perfection is produced, plus the full play of the enlightened consciousness and also of the life aspect. (there is debris in the channel which must be removed before this occurs.Mdb)
Pg 212-213 Another school of thought, branding themselves untruthfully as occultists, are equally in error as are the unity movement and Christian Science. They profess to work with the centers, only fortunately for them nature protects them often from themselves. They endeavor consciously to vitalize the centers, to burn away the protective WEB, and to raise the fires of matter before the fire of spirit has combined with the fire of the soul. They then fall victims to premature stimulation of the fires of substance before the balancing of the forces can take place. Disease, insanities, and many neurotic conditions, plus serious pathological conditions, then occur. Some of the glands become overactive. Others are overlooked and the entire glandular system and the dependent nervous system are in a state of complete imbalance.
Knowledge concerning the endocrine or ductless glands is as yet in an embryonic state. Much is known about the glands connected with the sacral center and about the thyroid gland. Not much is known about the pituitary body and its extreme importance as it affects the psychological response of the person. Nothing is known about the pineal or the thymus glands and this because neither the head center or the heart center is awakened in undeveloped man or even in the average citizen. The sacral and the thyroid centers are awakened in the average man. When the functioning is adequate, you have a highly sexed individual who is also a creative artist along some artistic line.
Pg 214- 216 When the ajna center and its externalization, the pituitary body are also active, and the relation between the three centers: sacral, throat and ajna, is awakened and functioning, then you will have the practical mystic, the humanitarian and the occultist.
Students should remember that there is both an upward and a downward trend of energy within the entire structure of centers, where the aspirant and the disciple are concerned:
1. The upward trend…producing Transmutation.
From the sacral center to the throat center. Physical creation is transmuted into artistic creativity.
From the solar plexus center to the heart center. Individual, emotional consciousness is transmuted into group consciousness.
From the base of the spine to the head center. Material force is transmuted into spiritual energy.
From any or all of the five spinal centers to the ajna center. Uncoordinated living is transmuted into personality integration. (advanced individuals are working on a strong personality, but it must be the vehicle for the SOUL! mdb)
From the six centers in relationship into the highest head center. Personality activity is transmuted into spiritual living.
The process involved is spread over many lives of unconscious transmutation in the earlier stages.
2. The Downward trend…producing Transformation.
Once the head center is awakening and the disciple is consciously active in the work of directing the energies to the centers, there is a scientific undertaking of energizing the centers in a certain ordered rhythm which is again determined by the rays, by circumstances and by karma. This downward trend can be roughly regarded as falling into three stages:
1. The stage of energizing the creative life, via the throat center, thus bringing:.
a. The head center and the throat center
b. These two and the sacral center
c. All three, consciously and simultaneously, into conscious relation.
This relation, when properly established, will solve the individual problem of sex, by bringing about the right control and making the disciple creative in a worldly sense and therefore of use to his fellowmen.
2. The stage of energizing the conscious life of relationship via the heart center, thus bringing:
a. The head center and the heart center
b. These two and the solar plexus center
c. All three simultaneously and consciously, into close cooperation.
This serves to establish right human relations. (realizing we are all brothers as all souls are part of the One Soul. mdb) This stage affects the astral vehicle with great potency. Emotional reactions are transformed into aspiration and service. Selfish individual love is transformed into group love and then divinity rules the life.
3. The stage of energizing the entire man, via the basic center thus bringing:
a. The head center and the basic center,
b. These two and the ajna center
c. All three, simultaneously into rhythmic expression. This is a final stage of great importance and only takes place in its completeness at the time of the third initiation, that of the Transfiguration.
You can see how three important words convey the purpose of the scientific unfoldment and the right direction of the centers:
