Chapter XIX - Rules for Applicants

Rule 1
Let the disciple search within the heart's deep cave. If there the fire burns bright, warming his brother yet heating not himself, the hour has come for making application to stand before the door.

Rule 2
When application has been made in triple form, then let the disciple withdraw that application and forget it has been made.

Rule 3
Triple the call must be and long it takes to sound it forth. Let the disciple sound the call across the desert, over all the seas and through the fires which separate him from the veiled and hidden door.

Rule 4
Let the disciple tend the evocation of the fire, nourish the lesser lives and thus keep the wheel revolving.

Rule 5
Let the applicant see to it that the Solar Angel dims the light of the lunar angels, remaining the sole luminary in the microcosmic sky.

Rule 6
The purificatory fires burn dim and low when the third is sacrificed to the fourth. Therefore let the disciple refrain from taking life and let him nourish that which is lowest with the produce of the second.

Rule 7
Let the disciple turn his attention to the enunciating of those sounds which echo in the hall where walks the Master. Let him not sound the lesser notes which awaken vibration within the halls of Maya.

Rule 8
When the disciple nears the Portal, the greater seven must awaken and bring forth response from the lesser seven upon the double circle.

Rule 9
Let the disciple merge himself within the circle of the other selves. Let but one color blend them and their unity appear. Only when the group is known and sensed can energy be wisely emanated.

Rule 10
The Army of the Voice, the devas in their serried ranks work ceaselessly. Let the disciple apply himself to a consideration of their methods; let him learn the rules whereby the Army works within the veils of maya.

Rule 11
Let the disciple transfer the fire from the lower triangle to the higher and preserve that which is created through the fire at the midway point.

Rule 12
Let the disciple learn to use the hand in service; let him seek the mark of the Messenger in his feet and let him learn to see with the eye which looks out from between the two.

Rule 13
Four things the disciple must learn and comprehend before he can be shown the inmost mystery: first, the laws of that which radiates; the five meanings of magnetization make the second; the third is transmutation or the secret lost of alchemy; and lastly, the first letter of the Word which has been imparted, or the hidden name egoic.

Rule 14
Listen, touch, see, apply, know.
