The outer form of the planet through which He expresses Himself is impregnated to a certain depth with the germs of these two diseases (tuberculosis & syphilitic diseases Mdb). As immunity is built up, however, as preventive medicine comes into its own, and as man himself arrives at increasing mental and SOUL CONTROL of the animal and desire natures, these forms of human suffering will disappear. They are disappearing among the more controlled areas of the human family.
P.236-237 As the life of God pulsates more powerfully through the kingdoms of nature, these two penalties of evil-doing will no longer be required and will disappear for three reasons:
1. The orientation of humanity is towards the light. The light of knowledge and the recognition of causes will make the syphilitic diseases and tuberculosis things of the past.
2. The centers below the diaphragm will be subjected to a lifting process. The life of the sacral center will be controlled and the energy will be expended in creative living, through the medium of the throat center. The solar plexus center will have its energy lifted to the heart center and the trend of human SELFISHNESS will then die out.
3. Complete cures, will bring about a gradual fading out of contagion.
Another reason which will bring about the cessation of those modes of living and desiring which account for these diseases is that all SECRETS will be known. (especially thru the internet, Mdb) The growth of psychic powers such as clairvoyance and clairaudience will strip humanity of the privacy in which to sin. Some one or some group will be aware of the acts of men. This will be a great deterrent, a far greater deterrent than you can imagine. Boycott and sanctions will be used to penalize nations. In this way crime and the tendency to evil doing will gradually be stamped out. It will be realized that all crime is founded upon some form of disease, or upon a GLANDULAR lack or OVER STIMULATION, based in turn upon the development or the underdevelopment of some one or other of the centers.
Pg.238 Cancer in our present cycle, the Aryan, is a result of the activity of the lower CONCRETE MIND and of the stimulation of the ETHERIC body, which the mind can bring about. It is a major disease incident to stimulation, as far as the Aryan masses are concerned, just as heart disease is also a disease of stimulation, affecting very largely the advanced types of humanity, who—through interest in business and leadership—often sacrifice their lives and pay the penalty of misused and over-concentrated energy by developing various forms of acute HEART trouble.
Disciples also are prone to suffer from this disease, owing to the awakening into violent activity of the heart center. In the one case, the life energy flowing thorough the heart is employed past all human tolerance in handling human affairs; in the other, the heart center opens up and the strain put upon the organ of the heart is too great, and heart disease supervenes. A third cause of heart disease is due to the PREMATURE or deliberately planned lifting of the energy of the solar plexus to the heart, thus putting an unexpected strain upon it.
Pg. 239 Cancer is most definitely related to the CENTERS. It will be found that the center in the area wherein the cancer exists is overactive. This overstimulation of a center can be due not only to the activity of the center and its consequent radiation, but also the SUPPRESSION imposed by the mind upon any activity of a particular center. This brings about a damming up of energy and again we have the creation of too much concentrated energy in any particular area. One of the main sources of cancer as related to the sacral center and therefore to the SEX organs, has been the well intentioned suppression of the sex life by misguided aspirants. They are those who find the teaching—monastic and celibate—of the Middle Ages, the line of least resistance. In that period of time, good people taught that sex was wicked. Normal reactions, instead of being controlled and transmuted into creative activity, were violently suppressed and all thoughts about the sex life were refused expression. Nevertheless ENERGY FOLLOWS the direction of THOUGHT, with the result that, that particularly magnetic type of energy attracted an increasing number of cells and atoms to itself. Therein is found the source of the tumors, and cancers so prevalent today. The same thing can be said about the violent inhibition imposed by an aspirant upon all emotional reactions and feelings. In their effort to control the astral body, these people resort to a process of direct inhibition and suppression. That suppression makes of the solar plexus center a great reservoir of drastically retained energy. TRANSMUTATION of the emotions into ASPIRATION and LOVE and directed control is NOT present.
Pg. 240 The existence of this vibrant reservoir of power brings about cancer of the stomach, of the liver, and sometimes of the entire area of the abdomen. Overactivity of a center and the retention of energy, unexpressed and inhibited are fruitful sources of cancer.
Pg. 231-242 In the future diseases will be brought under control by a system of LAYA-YOGA (the sciences of the centers) which will be sublimated form of the laya-yoga of Atlantean days. Then the advanced student will control the centers by the power of thought. In the yoga of the future, through MEDITATION and ALIGNMENT and right practices, the centers will be brought under the direct control of the soul—a very different thing to the control of the centers by the mind and one for which the masses of men are not yet ready. To this, the Science of the BREATH will be added—not breathing exercises as now taught, with often such dangerous results, but a breathing rhythm imposed by the mind through which the soul can work. It will not require anything more than the simple rhythmic physical breath, but which will reorganize the subtler bodies and bring the centers into ordered activity according to Ray and point in evolution. (alignment is of the three vehicles of the personality. If the heart center in the etheric body vibrates to the note of “C” then the heart centers in the emotional and mental vehicles must vibrate to the note of “C” on a higher octave.. It functions like a tuning fork. Meditation induces alignment. mdb)
DISEASES ARISING FROM OBSCURE PLANETARY CONDITIONS
It is obviously impossible for me to enlarge upon this subject. What I say will have to be taken on trust.
243. These diseases have no subjective origin. They are NOT psychological in nature and cannot be traced to any activity of the centers. They originate from the planetary life itself and from its life aspect, having a direct emanatory effect upon the individual atoms of which the dense physical body is composed. It is due primarily to an external impact of certain vibratory emanations coming from the surface of the planet, engendered deep within the planet and impinging upon the dense physical body. They are unconnected with the blood stream or with the nervous system. They are impossible to trace or isolate, because man is today so highly integrated that these external impacts immediately evoke a response from the nervous system. The modern physician is at present unable to distinguish between the diseases arising from within the patient’s own interior mechanism and those which are in the nature of extraneous irritants. I am not here referring to infectious difficulties.
Pg. 244 It is this planetary effect upon the physical body which is the major cause of death where the purely animal form nature is concerned, or the forms of life present in the animal and vegetable kingdom; And to a lesser degree in the mineral kingdom likewise. Death, as far as the human being is concerned, is increasingly due to the PLANNED intent and PLANNED withdrawal of the SOUL, under the pressure of its own formulated INTENT. This is true to some degree of all who die, except those who are of so low a grade of intelligence that the soul is practically little more than an overshadowing agency. Of all who die, the later stages of dissolution, effective after the conscious withdrawal of the soul (conscious on the part of the soul and becoming increasingly conscious on the part of the dying person), are taken over by this death-bestowing power of the planetary life itself.
Pg. 245. The processes of dying and the dissipation of forms goes on every moment without producing contagious contamination. The results of dissolution are beneficent in effect.
The human soul differs from the soul in the non-human forms, in that on its own plane, it is an effective expression of the three divine aspects. It determines, within certain limits, its entrance into human form and its exit therefrom. (at the right time the soul withdraws its attention from its vehicle. Ill health then gradually ensues. This may extend over a period of 5 or so years. Astrology is sometimes helpful in determining the crises leading to ill health and eventual death. Mdb) Once the soul has withdrawn the thread of consciousness from the brain, and its life thread from the heart, certain life processes still persist. They are now under the influence of the planetary life, however, and to these the physical elemental (the sumtotal of the living atoms of the body nature) is responsive. (In the next planetary or solar system, this dense physical elemental will evolve to be an etheric elemental. Eventually it will evolve to be an astral elemental, etc. All entities are in the process of evolving. Mdb)
Pg. 246 The withering of a flower or a tree and the many diseases in old age of the human being, are all brought about by the pull of the powerful life of the planet, speaking esoterically. This is an aspect of what is called, erroneously, the Law of Gravitation. This law is, again speaking esoterically, an aspect of the LAW OF RETURN, which governs the relation of a unit of life in form to its emanating source (consistent meditation can restore and extend life of a human being.mdb)
Pg. 247 The human form also reacts to the call of the soul to return its life principle to the soul, via the SUTRATMA (thread of life energy from the Monad. More on this much later. Mdb) and to return as consciousness to its registering source.
In this process, the form shows the results of being either the receiver of the tide of life from the planet, or as the releaser of that life, under cyclic law to its general reservoir of living energy. Upon these two reactions depends the health or the disease of the form. There are three major stages in the life cycle of all subhuman forms, and in the human form likewise when the soul is simply an overshadowing force and NOT an integrated energy.
1. The stage of inflowing, of vitalization and of growth. .(the soul takes hold for most children between the ages of 4 and 7. Mdb)
2 The state of resistance, wherein the form preserves its own integrity for a temporary cycle, determined by its species and environment, thus resisting successfully any “pull” of the all-enveloping life and any reabsorption of its vitality.
3. The stage of emission, wherein the pull of the greater life of the planet draws out and absorbs the weakening lesser life. When the average of a general cyclic period is normally run, a point of weakening in the bodily tissue gradually arises. Disease usually eventuates and death supervenes. The length of the cycles and their determining cause are a deep mystery. They are known only to the Masters.
Pg. 248 The great distinction between the human kingdom in the three worlds (physical, astral or emotional and mental. Mdb) and the other kingdoms in nature, is the factor of FREEWILL. In the matter of death, this freewill has a definite relation to the SOUL. The WILL of the soul is either consciously OR unconsciously followed, where the decision of death is concerned. This idea carries with it many implications.
