These energies influence the national consciousness, encouraging recognition of soul destiny and co-operation with that evolving process.

From Intellect to Intuition

The development of the intellect, while necessary, is a means to an end. The intellect should become a means of penetrating into new dimensions of thought and consciousness, and of awakening the intuitive faculty of "pure reason". Through occult meditation the gap is bridged between the threefold mind and the intuition.

Glamour: A World Problem

World glarnour - the sumtotal of human ignorance, fear and greed - can be dissipated through the clear, inclusive thinking of those in whom the soul (Christ) principle is awakening. Glamour results from a negative emotional focus; the dissipation of glarnour depends on "illumined thinking".

Letters on Occult Meditation

The science of meditation, as a mind-training technique. is increasingly practised everywhere. Meditation is concerned with energy flow - energy which is fiery and impersonal in nature. Its potential dangers should therefore be understood and avoided, and practices adopted which are safe and trustworthy. This book sets out the basic factors and shows that the overall objective of scientific meditation is planetary service.

Many religions today expect the coming of an avatar or saviour. The second coming of the Christ, as the world teacher for the age of Aquarius, is presented as an imminent event that is logical and practical in the continuity of divine revelation throughout the ages. The Christ belongs to all humanity, and can be known and understood as "the same great identity in all the world religions".

Telepathy and the Etheric Vehicle

The scientific basis for the widely accepted ideal of the "brotherhood of man" rests on the fact of the interwoven etheric - or energy - structure underlying all forms in all kingdoms within the planet. It is this essential oneness which provides the conditions for intercommunication on all levels of consciousness, and which creates the possibility of simultaneous impression in many by a stream of Plan-inspired energy.

A Treatise on Cosmic Fire

This volume deals with the underlying structure of occult teaching for the present era and with those vast cosmic processes reproduced through all areas of life from universe to atom. A large section of the book gives a detailed exposition of Solar Fire, the fire of Mind, since this is the dominant energy to be understood and controlled during this second solar system. A Treatise on Cosmic Fire provides a compact outline of a scheme of cosmology, philosophy and psychology which serves as a basic reference and text book.

Medicine is an exact and an exacting science. Esoteric healing is equally exacting and scientific. It is based on a number of requirements, including a knowledge of the spiritual structure of a human being as well as the biology and anatomy of the physical form. In this book the seven ray techniques of healing are described; the laws and rules of healing are discussed; basic causes of disease are shown; and requirements for healing are given in detail.

The first part of this volume contains the fourteen rules for group initiation. This is an extension of the teachings given in Initiation, Human and Solar on the fourteen rules for applicants.

This volume emphasises the growth of the group idea - group service, group responsibility, group initiation and group absorption into the centre, Hierarchy.
