Three Atomic Relations
SEVEN LAWS OF GROUP WORK
These can only be expressed largely through the medium of mystical terms, and it is left to the intuition of the student to apply them to the more material forms of life.
Law 1 - The Law of Sacrifice: This involves the immolation and sacrifice of that which has been realized. This is crucifixion, the basic law of all group work, the governing principle which results in each human unit eventually becoming a Savior.
Law 2 - The Law of Magnetic Impulse: The law governing the primary realizations by any atom of its environing contacts, and the going out, or feeling after, by that atom so that eventually a relation between that which is realized as part of the group and the unit is established. This is not the same thing as making sense contacts, as the relation established is between the Self in all, and not between aspects of the Not-Self. This law is sometimes called "The first step towards marriage," for it results in an eventual union between the man or atom and the group which produces harmonious group relations.
Law 3 - The Law of Service: This law, for want of a better name, concerns the identification of an atom with the group interest, and the steady negation of the atom's own material interests; it really deals with the process or method whereby an atom (positive in its own centralized life) gradually becomes responsive and receptive to the positive life of the group.
Law 4 - The Law of Repulsion: This law concerns itself with the ability of an atom to throw off, or refuse to contact, any energy deemed inimical to group activity. It is literally a law of service, but only comes consciously into play when the atom has established certain basic discriminations, and guides its activities through a knowledge of the laws of its own being.
