Esoteric Healing - Chapter I - The Psychological Causes of Disease
Three Major Laws of Health

There are three major laws of health and seven minor laws. These work out in the three worlds, which is all that concerns you at this time. In all teaching to be given in the immediate future, the main emphasis will eventually be laid upon the technique of the etheric body, for that is the next step forward. The three major laws are: [106]

  1. The law controlling the will to live, a manifestation of the first aspect of the Logos, will or power.
  2. The law controlling equality of rhythm, a manifestation of the second aspect of the Logos, love or wisdom.
  3. The law controlling crystallization, a manifestation of the third aspect of the Logos, the activity or foundational aspect.

These three governing factors or laws manifest themselves through the three major divisions of the human entity.

  1. The will aspect manifests through the organs of respiration. Another of its expressions is the faculty of sleep. In both of these you have a repetition or an analogy in the microcosm of Logoic manifestation and Logoic pralaya.
  2. The love aspect shows itself through the heart, the circulatory system and the nervous system. This is in many ways most important for you to understand, for it controls paramountly the etheric body and its assimilation of prana or vitality. This prana works through both the blood and the nerves, for the life force uses the blood stream and psychic force works through the nervous system. These two departments of the human organism are those which cause the greatest amount of trouble at this time and will even more in the future. The race learns through suffering, and only dire need drives man to seek solution and relief. From the present standpoint of healing, man forms again a lesser trinity of importance:
    1. The dense physical body, of which science and medicine know much. [107]
    2. The etheric body, which is the next field of endeavor, of experiment and of discovery.
    3. The astral body which, simultaneously with the etheric, is the next object for scientific control. The science of psychology will work here.
  3. The activity aspect, which manifests primarily through the organs of assimilation and elimination. I seek here to emphasize one point. Just as our solar system is developing the love aspect, which is the second aspect, and just as the human being is polarized in the astral body, which is the reflection of that second aspect, so the second of the three above mentioned departments of the human organism, the etheric, is the one of paramount importance. Up to date it has been the transmitter primarily of astral energy to the physical body. This is now in process of changing.

The whole trend of medical science should now be awake to the concrete facts of the dense physical body and moving towards the study of vitalization and circulation, for these two are closely related. The nervous system is controlled principally today from the astral body, via the etheric, and the basis of all nervous trouble lies hidden in the emotional body wherein humanity at this time is polarized. The circulatory system of the physical body is controlled principally from the etheric body. When you have an etheric body that is not functioning properly and does not transmit prana sufficiently, and when you have an astral or emotional body that is not adequately or properly controlled, you have in these two the source of the majority of the diseases and nervous and mental conditions that are annually increasing. The reflex action of inadequate circulation upon the physical brain (again due to the etheric body) leads to mental strain and eventual collapse. From this you can see the importance of the etheric vehicle. [108]

The first aspect, which has for its expression and field of control the organs of respiration and the faculty of sleep, when not functioning properly, produces death, insanity and some of the diseases of the brain.

The third aspect, when not functioning properly, causes stomach troubles, bowel complaints and the various diseases that are located beneath and below the solar plexus in the abdomen.

You see, therefore, how medical science must eventually seek solution in a simplification of methods and a return from a complexity of drugs and operations to an understanding of the right use of the energies which pour through from the inner man, via the etheric body, to the physical.

The following suggestions may help:

  1. By the development of goodwill, which is the will of good intention and motive, will come the healing of diseases of the respiratory tract, lungs and throat, the stabilizing of the cells of the brain, the cure of insanities and obsessions, and an attainment of equilibrium and of rhythm. Longevity will ensue, for death should be the recognition by the soul of work consummated and pralaya earned. It will only take place later at long and separated periods, and will be controlled by the will of the man. He will cease to breathe when he has finished his work, and then will send the atoms of his body into pralaya. That is the sleep of the physical, the end of manifestation, and the occult significance of this is not yet comprehended.
  2. By a comprehension of the laws of vitality - and in this phrase are comprehended the laws governing prana, radiation and magnetism - will come the healing of the diseases in the blood, of the arteries and veins, of certain nervous complaints, lack of vitality, senile decay, poor circulation and similar ills. This too will result in the [109] prolongation of life. The laws of electrical energy will also be better understood in this connection.
  3. By the understanding of right methods of assimilation and elimination will come the healing of diseases connected with the bodily tissues, the stomach and bowels and the male and female organs of generation. It will some day be understood that these latter are only another system of assimilation and elimination, centered this time in the feminine aspect or woman, for again remember that this is the second or love system. The order is thus:
    1. The first system was masculine.
    2. The present system, the second, is feminine.
    3. The third system will be hermaphroditic.

E'en though the evolving human Hierarchy is masculine or positive, yet that is no guarantee that all that is found in the present system is masculine too. The fact is that the negative faculty or the feminine aspect dominates, even though this may be unrecognized by you. Let me demonstrate and give some indication by figures of this hypothesis:

  1. In the first solar system there was one dominant evolution, and it consisted of one hundred thousand million monads.
  2. In the present system, the second, there are two dominant evolutions, the human and the deva; there are - as earlier stated - sixty thousand million human monads. Add to this the feminine evolution of the devas, consisting of 140 thousand million, and you have the necessary two hundred thousand million. This elucidates my statement anent this being a feminine system. [110]
  3. In the third solar system, the total number in evolution will be the needed three hundred thousand million that perfection requires of the threefold Logos.
