It might be posited that:

a. All diseases and physical difficulties are caused by one or more of three things or conditions:

  1. A developed Soul contact, thus producing the vitalisation of all the centers in ordered rhythm, according to the Soul Ray. This necessarily produces stress and strain in the physical vehicle.

  1. Personality life and focus, which attempts to negate this Soul control, and which is largely expressed through the activity of the Throat center (predisposing an activity of the thyroid gland) and of the centers below the diaphragm.

  1. A cycle in the life of the Aspirant wherein personality control begins to weaken and in which the emphasis and consequent activity shifts into the centers above the diaphragm—again causing trouble and readjustment.

b. Certain objectives present themselves to the aspirant at various stages, and each involves progress, but

     at the same time certain attendant difficulties.

The objective before the Initiate is to have every center in the Etheric body responsive to the Ray energy of the Soul and with all the other seven Ray energies subsidiary to it. This process of stimulation, of readjustment, and the attainment of established control goes on until after the third initiation. Then, when that initiation has been taken, the physical vehicle is of a totally different calibre and quality, and the Rules and Laws of Health no longer apply.

The objective before the Disciple is to promote control of the centers in the body, via the Soul, through stimulation, elimination and eventual stabilisation. This inevitably produces difficulty, and the vitalisation or inspiration (either of these words would be appropriate), or their lack or deficiency, affect the bodily organs within the areas around the centers and affect all substances surrounding the centers.

The objective before the Aspirant or the probationary disciple is to transfer the forces from the centers below the diaphragm, via the Solar Plexus center, to the centers above the diaphragm. The energy of the Base of the Spine has to be transferred to the head; the energy of the sacral center must be lifted to the throat, whilst the energy of the Solar Plexus must be transferred to the heart. This is done in response to the magnetic "pull" of the Soul Ray as it begins to dominate the Personality Ray. It is a long and painful process, covering many lives and carrying, as the result, many physical ills.

The objective before the Average man (unconsciously effective) is to respond fully to personality force, focussed primarily at the middle point, the Solar Plexus, and then steadily and intelligently to coordinate these forces so that an integrated personality is presented eventually to the Soul for control and use.

The objective before the Primitive or Undeveloped man (unconsciously effective) is to live a full animal and emotional life, thereby gaining experience of growth, of contact, and eventually of understanding. By this means the response apparatus of the Soul in the three worlds is built.


It will be apparent to you that disease (when not of a group origin, or the result of planetary karma or based on accident) takes its rise in the activity or the non-activity of the centers. This is a statement of a basic truth, given in the simplest manner. The centers, as you know, govern the endocrine system which, in its turn, controls the seven major areas of the physical body and is responsible for the correct functioning of the entire organism, producing both physiological and psychological effects.

The importance of this glandular system cannot be overestimated. It is a replica in miniature of the septenary constitution of the universe and the medium of expression and the instrument of contact for the seven Ray forces, the seven Spirits before the Throne of God. Around this at present unrecognised truth the medicine and the healing methods of the future civilisation will be built.
