Pg. 95 FRUSTRATED IDEALISM
There are however, certain diseases which appear in the physical mechanism and which are definitely rooted in the fact that activity (which is the result of thinking specifically) has been colored and conditioned by the emotional life of the individual. It is therefore the predominance of the emotional force, and not of the mental energy which really causes the physical trouble. Diseases of the nervous system and of the brain, are the result of overstimulation and of the impact of energy (often from the mind and the soul) upon an instrument unfitted to handle it. (That is why we have to raise the rate of vibration of our vehicles through meditation, soul attunement, self-realization, and to purify not just the dense physical body through cleanliness, exercise, good food, avoidance of meat, but also the etheric body through correct breathing, sunshine, through the astral body through the transmutation of negative feelings, biases, criticisms, anger, self-pity, frustrations, worry, etc and through developing self-awareness, and that all ideologies and ‘isms’ (fundamentalism, commercialism, patriotism, politicisms, etc) ENSLAVE the soul. For eons the soul has identified with the body or personality, accepting all its beliefs. Now the personality has to shake off old limiting beliefs and habits and identify with the soul. Commercialism is based on greed…making money while others starve. Mdb)
These we will consider later.
Disease is a form of activity.
1. Mental activity and energy produces (through the power of thought) certain registration of plans, idealisms and ambitions.(we have to develop new mental habits. In the past we have been brainwashed by science , i.e. there is no life in physical substance. The life is latent or sleeping. mdb)
2. This energy, blended with astral energy, becomes dominated and controlled by astral reactions of an undesirable kind, such as worry, over-non-accomplishment, the failure to materialize the plans, etc. The life becomes consequently embittered.
3. Disease then appears in the physical body, according to the predisposing tendencies of the body and its inherent, INHERITED weaknesses. (Before we incarnate, karma is imposed on our future subtle bodies, according to our actions in past lives. It is our soul that chooses our parents, so that we have tendencies to certain diseases. mdb)
Pg. 96. You will note that in reality, the mental body, and the power of thought have NOT been the cause of the trouble. It has been caused by the obliteration of the original thought and its stepping down to the level of emotionalism.
The second question asks whether an individual or a group can heal by thought power.
Most certainly the generalization can be made that an individual and a group can heal and that thought can play its potent part in the healing processes, but not thought alone and unaided. Thought can be the directing agency of forces and energies which can disrupt and dispel disease, but the process must be aided by the power to visualize, by an ability to work with particular forces as is deemed advisable, by an understanding of the RAYS and their types of energies and also by a capacity to handle light substance, as it is called. One must be in rapport with the one to be healed, plus a loving heart. (after the 3rd major initiation, the Monad takes an interest. It can heal and/or protect through electric fire, its own electricity. Mdb)
Pg. 97 The mind can direct energy and this energy can, in its turn, produce overstimulation of the brain and of the body cells and so cause nervous trouble and sometimes brain disease, but the mind itself and thinking, per se, cannot cause disease and trouble in the physical body. Disease will be greatly lessened as more and more people will achieve INTEGRATION. Where there is integration there is the free play of force and of energy throughout the material body. (When the etheric & physical bodies are not integrated, there is lack of vitality, even obsession. When the astral & mental bodies are not integrated you can have psychological difficulties, being controlled by self-created thoughtforms, etc. With the practice of Meditation, integration and alignment of the vehicles becomes easier. The soul's energy then pours through the vehicles. Mdb)
Page 105-6 Three major laws of Health
There are 3 major laws and 7 minor laws. These work out in the 3 worlds (physical, emotional and mental. MDB) They are:
1. The law controlling the WILL TO LIVE, a manifestation of the first aspect of the Logos,: will or power. (In the Christian teachings this would be equivalent to the Father aspect. It is the LIFE aspect. a/k/a Atma in these studies.MDB)
2. The law controlling equality of rhythm, a manifestation of the second aspect of the Logos, love or wisdom. (This would be th CONSCIOUSNESS aspect or the Son in the Christian teachings. Known as Buddhi in these studies. MDB)
3. The law controlling crystallization, a manifestation of the third aspect of the Logos, the Activity or foundational aspect. (This would be the FORM aspect or the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit in the Christian teachings. Known as Manas in these studies. Mdb)
P. 106 These 3 governing laws manifest themselves through the 3 major divisions of the human entity.
1. The WILL aspect manifests though the organs of respiration. Another of its expressions is the faculty of sleep. In both of these you have a repetition in the microcosm of Logoic manifestation and Logoic pralaya. (rest or inactivity)
2. The LOVE aspect shows itself through the heart, the circulatory system and the nervous system. This is in many ways most important for you to understand for it controls the etheric body and its assimilation of prana or vitality. This prana works through the blood and through the nerves. The life force uses the blood stream and psychic force works through the nervous system. These two departments are those which cause the greatest amount of trouble at this time. The race learns through suffering. From the present standpoint of healing, man forms again a lesser trinity of importance:
a. The dense physical body, of which science and medicine know much.
b. The etheric body, which is the next field of endeavor, of experiment and of discovery.
c. The astral body, which simultaneously with the etheric body, is the next object for scientific control. The science of psychology will work here.
3. The ACTIVITY aspect which manifests primarily through the organs of assimilation and elimination.
Just as our solar system is developing the LOVE aspect, which is the 2nd aspect, and just as the human being is polarized in the ASTRAL body, which is the reflection of that 2nd aspect, so the second of the three above mentioned departments of the human organism, the etheric, is the one of paramount importance. Up to date it has been the transmitter primarily of astral energy to the physical body. This is now in process of changing.
The nervous system is controlled principally through the astral body, via the etheric and the basis of all NERVOUS trouble lies hidden in the emotional body wherein humanity at this time is polarized. The circulatory system of the physical body is controlled principally from the etheric body. When you have an etheric body that is not functioning properly and does not transmit prana sufficiently, and when you have an astral or emotional body that is NOT adequately or properly controlled, you have in these two, the source of the majority of the diseases and nervous and mental conditions that are annually increasing. The reflex action of inadequate circulation upon the physical brain (again due to the etheric body) leads to mental strain and eventual collapse.
Pg. 108. The FIRST ASPECT, which has for its expression and field of control the organs of respiration and the faculty of sleep, when not functioning properly produces death, insanity and some of the diseases of the brain. (Yogis use a special breathing exercise. They start the breath from the abdomen ) Another exercise is to count the breaths according to your pulse beat. i.e. Take in 6 breaths, hold it for 3; exhale for 6 breaths and hold it out for 3 beats. If you take in 4 breaths then hold it for 2 breaths. It is always one-half of the number of original breaths. Check out free Kryia Yoga on the internet which can be performed before meditation. Mdb)
The Third Aspect, when not functioning properly causes stomach troubles, bowel complaints and the various diseases that are located beneath and BELOW the SOLAR PLEXUS in the abdomen.
Medical science must see solutions in a simplification of methods and a return from a complexity of DRUGS and OPERATIONS to an understanding of the RIGHT USE of the ENERGIES.
The following suggestions may help:
1. BY THE DEVELOPMENT OF GOODWILL, which is the will of good intentions and motive, will come the healing of diseases of the respiratory tract, lungs and throat, the stabilizing of the cells of the brain, the cure of insanities and obsessions and an attainment of equilibrium and of rhythm. Longevity will ensue, for death should be the recognition by the soul of work consummated and pralaya (rest) earned.
2. BY A COMPREHENSION OF THE LAWS OF VITALITY—and in this phrase are comprehended the laws governing prana, radiation and magnetism—will come the healing of the diseases in the blood, of the arteries and veins, of certain nervous complaints, lack of vitality, senile decay, poor circulation and similar ills. This too will result in the prolongation of life. The laws of electrical energy will also be better understood in this connection.
3. By the UNDERSTANDING OF RIGHT METHODS OF ASSIMILATION AND ELIMINATION will come the healing of diseases connected with the bodily tissues, the stomach and bowels and the male and female organs of generation. It will some day be understood that these latter are only another system of assimilation and elimination, centered this time in the feminine aspect or woman, for again remember that this is the second or love system. The order is thus:
Pg. 109. a. The first (solar MDB) system was masculine.
b. The present system, the second, is feminine
c. The third system will be hermaphrodite. (The human and deva or angel Monads will have been fused. On the path returning to our Source, the process is through sysnthesis and fusion. Mdb)
Even though the evolving human Hierarchy is masculine or positive, yet that is no guarantee that all that is found in the present system is masculine too.
In the first solar system there was one dominant evolution, and it consisted of one hundred thousand million monads.
In the present second system, there are two dominant evolutions, the human and the deva (angel). There are 60 thousand million human monads. Add to this the feminine evolution of the devas, consisting of 140 thousand million and you have the necessary 200 thousand million. This is why our present system is feminine.
In the third solar system the total number in evolution will be the needed 300 million thousand that perfection requires of the threefold Logos. (The Lord of our Solar System. The Monadic Essence is the Real Self, a fragment of the Boundless. Mdb)
