Discipleship in the New Age I - Summary of the Tibetan's Work
Letters on Occult Meditation followed next. These indicated a somewhat new approach to meditation, based not on devotion to the Masters but on a recognition of the soul in each person. This was succeeded by A Treatise on Cosmic Fire. This book was an expansion of the teaching given in The Secret Doctrine on the three fires - electric fire, solar fire and fire by friction - and it was an awaited sequence; it also presented the psychological key to The Secret Doctrine and is intended to offer study to disciples and initiates at the close of this century and the beginning of the next century, up until 2025 A. D. [779]

Later A. A. B. felt that it would be of value to me and to the work if she demonstrated that she could write books (useful to students) apart from transcribing my writings and taking down my notes, rendering them into the thought-provoking English which together we have developed as a medium for transmission of the ideas which it is my dharma to make public. The average psychic and medium is not usually of a high-grade intelligence and A. A. B. desired to prove (for the aiding of the work of the future) that one could do definitely psychic work and be of a real intelligence. She has, therefore, written four books which are entirely her own production:

  • The Consciousness of the Atom.
  • The Soul and Its Mechanism.
  • From Intellect to Intuition.
  • From Bethlehem to Calvary.

She has also written one book in collaboration with me, entitled The Light of the Soul; in it I give the translation of the Sanskrit Sutras of Patanjali and she contributes the commentary, referring to me occasionally for reassurance as to meaning.

Then followed A Treatise on White Magic. This was written years ago. As it was written it went out, chapter by chapter, to the senior students of the Arcane School as reading matter only. It is the first book ever given out upon the training and control of the astral or emotional body. Many occult books have been written upon the subject of the physical body and its purification and upon the etheric or vital body; most of them have been compilations of other books, both ancient or modern. This book of mine, however, is intended to train the modern aspirant in the control of his astral body, by the aid of the mind as that mind is, in its turn, illumined by the soul.
