Esoteric Healing #17
Medicine in the next century will be built around certain major premises:
Preventive medicine will be the goal, producing the attempt to keep the body in a balanced order.
The supply of the right chemical properties will be studied—a science of chemistry which is yet in its infancy, though it is becoming a flourishing infant.
An understanding of the laws of vitality will be regarded as of prime importance, and of this the emphasis today on vitamins and the influence of the sun are wholesome indications.
The use of the MIND will be regarded, above everything else as a factor of major importance. It will be seen as the prime influence as regards the CENTERS. People will be taught to work on their centers through mental power and thus produce a right reaction from the endocrine system. This will necessarily involve the right directing of thought to a center, or the withdrawal of attention from a center, with consequent effect upon the glandular system. This will all be based upon the occult law that “Energy follows thought.” (In the book, “Glamour, a World Problem” the Tibetan Master says that INTENTION is important in the procedure to fuse the personality and the soul. I found that when it’s the soul’s intention, the results are fantastic. You can (as the soul) direct your attention to the Ajna center using your intention to stimulate it. Intention can be used for anything and everything else, even losing weight, developing the intellect, contacting the soul, etc. Only be sure it is the soul’s intention. The soul is not interested in material assets or material goals. MDB)
CAUSES EMANATING FROM GROUP LIFE
Pg.222 Inter-marriage between nations and races, due to migration, travel, education and mental unity, has led to there being NO really pure racial types today. This development is definitely a part of the divine plan, no matter how undesirable it may appear to those who idealize purity of relationship. Something intended is being brought about.
Pg 225. The diseases of heart disease, insanities, cancer, the social diseases, aids, and tuberculosis, in a subtle manner are due to two basic causes: One is the close interplay between people living under modern conditions, and the massing of people into cities and towns. The other is the age of the SOIL. It is deeply impregnated with the germs and the residue incident to past ages. The IMMUNITY OF MAN is an amazing matter, could you but realize it. He resists and throws off continuously every kind of disease.
To the trained occult observer, it is as if humanity is walking partly in a dense shadow which engulfs the race, and some part of which involves an area of the body of every human being. One of the aims of the New Age will be to “lighten this shadow and bring people out into the fitness of true health.” This same shadow penetrates also into the mineral kingdom, the vegetable and also the animal kingdom. It is also the fertile seed of crime.
Pg. 226 Bacteria and germs are largely correct, but this is so ONLY if you bear in mind that they are in reality EFFECTS OF CAUSES which are hidden in the history of the planet itself and also in the racial history of the past, of which practically nothing is known.
DISEASES OF HUMANITY, INHERITED FROM THE PAST
Naught is known of the civilization which flourished in early Atlantean times 12 million years ago. Naught is known at all of the Lemurian civilization which goes back more than 15 million years. Still less is known of that twilight period which existed 21 million years ago when men were scarcely human. (They had no dense physical bodies. The sexes were not divided. Their bodies might have appeared as a white blob.Mdb)
Pg 227 Each soul has come to earth repeatedly. Many millions are here today, particularly those who were present in later Altantean times. They are the flower and highest product of that highly emotional race. They bring with them the innate tendencies.
The physical bodies in which humanity now dwells are constructed of very ancient matter. The substance is tainted by the history of the past. To this concept must be added two others: First, that incoming souls draw to themselves the type of material with which they must construct their outer sheaths. This will be responsive to some aspect of their subtler natures. If, for instance, physical desire conditions them, the material of their physical vehicle will be largely responsive to that particular urge. Secondly, each physical body carries within itself the SEEDS of inevitable retribution, if its functions are misused. The great original sin in Lemurian times was SEXUAL in nature. It was due not only to inherent tendencies, but to the extraordinarily dense population and the close relation of the ANIMAL KINGDOM. The origin of the syphilitic diseases traces back to these times.
Pg. 228 In the infancy of the race, a great mismating, promiscuity and perversions took place.
The Lemurian race practically destroyed itself, owing to its misuse of the sacral center. (the sex center. Mdb) In Altantean days it was the solar plexus center which was the prime objective of the “entering fire.” The initiate in Lemurian times was one who had completely mastered the control of the body. Hatha-yoga was then the outstanding spiritual practice. This, in time was superseded by Laya-yoga, which brought all the centers in the etheric body (except the throat and head centers) into functioning activity. In our race it is the MIND which is subject to stimulation.
VENEREAL & SYPHILITIC DISEASES
Pg. 229 Paralleling all the activity of the Great White Lodge (as was always the case and is the case today) was the activity of the DARK FORCES. Their effects had to be brought about through the medium of the SACRAL CENTER. Thus a vicious situation came about which weakened the stamina of the human body, which greatly increased the demands of the sex nature through the stimulation of the sacral center, artificially brought about by the Black Lodge, and which produced many unholy alliances and widespread evil relations. (The Great White Lodge is the Spiritual Hierarchy guiding the evolution of the kingdoms of nature through the soul. The Black Lodge does the opposite through the matter aspect of form . There are always two forces opposing each other, representing Spirit & Matter.Mdb)
A great new law of nature was then imposed by the planetary Logos. “He that MISUSES that which he hath built will see it fall from forces within itself.”
At this time there also arose the first tendencies to marriage, as differentiated from promiscuity. The formation of family units became the goal for the most highly evolved.
Pg. 231 As ages passed away, the conscious control of the physical body dropped below the threshold of consciousness. The physical body reacted increasingly like an automaton to the direction of a steadily developing DESIRE NATURE. Desire was for material possessions and towards that which, when seen and coveted, could be appropriated. The major sin of the Atlantean people was THEFT. The seeds of aggression and of personal acquisitiveness began to show themselves, culminating in the great war between the Lords of the Shining Countenance and the Lords of the Dark Face. To procure what they coveted, the most highly evolved of that race began to practice MAGIC. It is not possible for me to outline to you the nature and practices of Atlantean magic with its control of ELEMENTALS. (Elementals are semi-intelligent forces of the more subtle kingdoms of nature on the Involutionary Arc. Like our personality, they evolve by resisting the Soul. Eventually elementals will enter the mineral kingdom & will be on the Evolutionary Arc. After millions of years they will evolve into the vegetable kingdom, etc.Mdb) Words of Power & rituals were employed. (the Soul creates thru sounding mantrams: words of power.Mdb) This magical work was the misdirected travesty of the White Magic so openly used in those days. Magic was very familiar to the Atlantean people and was used by those Members of the Hierarchy Who were entrusted with the guidance of the race and Who were combating evil in high places. That same evil is again upon the warpath. It is being fought by men of goodwill, under the direction of the Great White Lodge. (today we see chaos in the world through injustice, self-interest and greed. mdb)
Pg. 232. Heights of luxury were reached in Atlantis of which we know nothing and have never achieved. There was a recurrence of pure Atlantean mischief in the decadent days of the Roman Empire. Life became tainted by the miasma of unadulterated selfishness. Men only lived to be in possession of the utmost luxury.
It is in this situation that we find the origin of tuberculosis. It originated in the organs whereby men breathe and live. It was imposed as a penalty, by the Great White Lodge. The Masters promulgated a new law: “He who lives only for material goods, who sacrifices all virtue in order to gain that which cannot last, will die in life, will find breath failing him, and yet will refuse to think of death until the summons comes.”
It is difficult for us to appreciate the Atlantean state of consciousness. There was NO mental process whatsoever, except among the leaders of the race. There was only ruthless desire.
Pg 233 This action of the Great White Lodge forced two issues and confronted the race with two unrealized problems. The first was that PSYCHOLOGICAL ATTITUDES and states of consciousness can bring about physiological conditions, these being both good and bad. Secondly, for the first time the people were faced with the phenomenon of death, brought about in a new way and not just by physical means. Death had hitherto been accepted without questioning as the fate of all living things, but now, for the first time, mental relationship between individual action and death was recognized. A great step forward was made in the human consciousness.
The time had arrived when the race could be taught the lesson that death can either be the ending of a cycle or it can be brought about by the MISUSE of the physical body, by MISAPPLIED energy and by the deliberate action of the man himself. The man who is psychologically wrong in his attitudes and consequent actions, COMMITS SUICIDE just as truly as the man who deliberately blows out his brains.
Pg. 234. Eventually the human race will realize that the possession of that which you have not EARNED or NEEDED, and which consequently is not rightfully yours, is not worth while.
It is around these basic ideas that the world war (1914-1945) was fought. (The Spiritual Hierarchy considers this as one war. Mdb) We call the unlawful possession of other people’s land, territories, and goods AGGRESSION; but this is the same thing in principle as stealing, theft and rape. Today these evils are not only individual sins, but can be NATIONAL characteristics. The ancient Atlantean struggle is being bitterly waged, with the probability that this time the Great White Lodge will triumph. That was NOT the case in the earlier conflict. Then the war was ended by the intervention of the planetary Logos Himself, and that ancient civilization went down and was engulfed in water. Death by drowning and by obscure means have both been tried in the effort to salvage humanity. Today death by fire is the applied technique. It promises to be successful as humanity is now more mentally alert. The MOTIVES are seen more clearly and the will-to-good is stronger than ever before. What is beginning to manifest now in the public consciousness is something good and new. (Today, the people of the world are now aware of the theft of oil, land, water & resources by wealthy nations & the power of multinational corporations . The Majority disapprove of it. Mdb)
