I would here remind you that a law is in reality the effect of the life of a greater entity as it encloses a lesser within its living processes. It embodies that formulated purpose or organised will of an enfolding life, against which the expressed purpose or determined will of that which is enfolded is entirely helpless. You might argue, brother of mine, that this statement negates the freewill of the individual unit thus enclosed or enfolded. It assuredly does militate against the form aspect of manifestation—that aspect, for instance, of which a human being is pre-eminently conscious. Therefore, this relationship of the higher or greater and the lower or lesser, will equally and assuredly dominate and eventually render futile the lesser laws of the form nature, those which today are called the laws of nature.


We have, therefore, three groups of laws which govern the expression of the living purpose in this second solar system—one developed and another developing, with the third latent and relatively quiescent:

  1. The Laws of Nature—the separative laws of the form nature.
  2. The Laws of the Soul—the blending laws of group integrity.
  3. The Laws of Life—the dynamic laws of Being itself.

It is with certain aspects of the Laws of the Soul that we shall now deal, for they concern the integrity and activity of the Soul in form. This must be most carefully borne in mind. Disease is something which attacks the integrity or the harmony of the form nature which the inner Spiritual man must order to make his contacts in the three worlds which constitute his environment when in incarnation. The ten laws which we shall consider might, therefore, be regarded as ten subsidiary laws of the fundamental Law of Essential Integrity. They constitute nine elaborations or aspects of that one law, and this you must have most carefully in mind. It is with these laws that the true healer must ever work.

The six rules deal only with the application of this realized integrity to the conditions and situation with which the healer is confronted. Integrity involves focus, tension and expression (simultaneously realized, consciously generated and dynamically used).


  1. The power to contact and work as a Soul. "The art of the healer consists in releasing the Soul." Think for a moment what this power involves. The healer is not only in immediate and conscious touch with his own Soul, but through that Soul contact he can easily contact the Soul of his patient.

  1. The power to command the Spiritual Will. The particular law involved in the healing act must be "brought into activity by the Spiritual will." This necessitates the capacity to make contact with the Spiritual Triad. Therefore, the Antahkarana must be somewhat in process of construction.

  1. The power to establish Telepathic rapport. The healer must "know the inner stage of thought and of desire" of his patient.

  1. He must have exact Knowledge. We read that he must "know the point exact through which relief must come." This is a most important point and one entirely overlooked by the so-called healers in such movements as Christian Science, Unity and others. Healing does not come through an intense affirmation of divinity, or by simply pouring out love and the expression of a vague mysticism. It comes through mastering an exact science of contact, of impression, of invocation, plus an understanding of the subtle apparatus of the Etheric vehicle.

  1. The power to Reverse, Reorient and "Exalt" the consciousness of the patient. The healer has to "lift the downward focussed eyes unto the Soul." This refers to the eyes of the patient. This statement implies limitation, because if the patient is not at the stage in evolution where this is possible, and at the point in evolution where he can contact his own Soul, the work of the healer is rendered inevitably futile. The sphere of action, therefore, of the Spiritual healer is strictly limited to those who have faith. Faith, however, is the "evidence of things not seen"; that evidence is largely lacking in the majority. Faith is not wishful thinking or an engineered hope. It is evidence of a well-grounded conviction.
