Occultism is worried with the medical evidence in the back of the religious idealisms many settle for as a result of a ordinary human tendency to idealise. the most hugely idealised suggestions is that of the brotherhood of guy. Occultism exhibits that the medical foundation for that excellent rests at the truth of the single etheric constitution underlying all varieties in the sun method, energised and held in being by way of one existence strength. Mankind is, as a result, one in existence and in shape; he's purely blind to cohesion in his personal cognizance. And evolution is largely the ability through which he turns into gradually aware of the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of guy.
In this entire approach the schools of guy play an immense part--the 5 goal senses with their 5 greater religious opposite numbers. The psychological precept or school is of large value to humanity at this level in his evolutionary unfoldment. The three-fold brain unifies as one school the better or summary brain, the soul--the son of brain, and the decrease concrete brain. As this of psychological fusion and keep watch over develops, the disciple is studying to exploit the brain in new methods, quite in wielding strength which, because it vitalises and animates his etheric physique, affects via radiation his impact on others.
It is thru this unsleeping, managed use of psychological power that telepathic communique will be scientificallv validated with different minds through the etheric constitution universal to all. And through a similar skill the brain of the disciple, or of a gaggle of disciples constructing workforce awareness, could be inspired through the readability of proposal and goal of these contributors of the non secular Hierarchy occupied with the figuring out of the Plan for humanity. The religious Hierarchy, we're toId, works basically throughout the minds of disciples, utilizing the technological know-how of effect, and just for the needs of the Plan. The impact is conveyed as a movement of ideas--those rules inherent within the Plan for man--which the disciple or the gang can then interpret and translate into self-chosen motion.
The kind of telepathy now constructing in the spiritually woke up aspirants of the realm isn't, for that reason, that of the sun plexus centre that's of the animal nature, however the results of a psychological polarisation and penetration in awareness in the direction of the soul and the Triad. This produces an open channel of conversation in directions--vertically in the direction of the religious Hierarchy of the planet, looking to provoke the Plan on all receptive minds, and horizontally in the direction of the minds of fellows united in the psychological substance of human awareness as one.
The moment a part of this e-book discusses the etheric constitution of the planet and the sunlight procedure of which every guy and every shape is an essential component; the development of the triangle in controlling power circulate and constructing a continuity of flow in the course of the entire method is of speedy significance to humanity. we're curious about the lifetime of the Planetary Logos--"in Him we are living and circulation and feature our being"--and we're a contributing a part of the current attempt to convey the etheric physique below the impact of the soul, symbolised through the triangle. To the level, and on the fee, that we be triumphant, so is the planetary etheric constitution altering in shape to develop into extra consciously built-in into the power method of which our planet is one small unit.
So the residing means of solidarity is exemplified--the half contributing to the entire, and the entire effecting the half via each telephone and atom of each grade of substance which it comprises.
