Esoteric Healing - Chapter IV - The Basic Requirements for Healing
On Death

Excerpts from other Writings

A Treatise on the Seven Rays, Vol. I:

"Why this blind power? Why Death? Why this decay [411] of forms? Why the negation of the power to hold? Why death, 0 Mighty Son of God?"
Faintly the answer comes: "I hold the keys of life and death. I bind and loose again. I the Destroyer am."
- Page 63.

The intent of the Lord of the first Ray is to stand behind the other divine Aspects, and when They have achieved Their purpose, to shatter the forms They have built.
He is the controller of the death drama in all kingdoms - a destruction of forms which brings about release of power and permits "entrance into light through the gateway of death."
- Page 64.

a. "Withhold thy hand until the time has come. Then give the gift of death, 0 Opener of the Door."
- Page 65.

b. "Separate the robe from That which hides behind its many folds. Take off the veiling sheaths. Let God be seen. Take Christ from off the Cross."
- Page 69.

The first step towards substantiating the fact of the soul is to establish the fact of survival, though this may not necessarily prove the fact of immortality...That something survives the process of death, and that something persists after the disintegration of the physical body is steadily being proved. If that is not so, then we are the victims of a collective hallucination, and the brains and minds of thousands of people are untrue and deceiving, are diseased and distorted. Such a gigantic collective insanity is more difficult to credit than the alternative of an expanded consciousness.
- Page 98-99. [412]

a. The growth of etheric vision and the largely increased numbers of clairaudient and clairvoyant people is steadily revealing the existence of the astral plane and the etheric counterpart of the physical world. More and more people are becoming aware of this subjective realm: they see people walking around who are either the so-called "dead" or who, in sleep, have dropped the physical sheath.
- Page 98.

b. The next two hundred years will see the abolition of death, as we now understand that great transition, and the establishing of the soul's existence. The soul will be known as an entity, as the motivating impulse and the spiritual center back of all manifested forms...Our essential immortality will be demonstrated and realized to be a fact in nature.
- Page 96.

Within the next few years the fact of persistence and of the eternity of existence will have advanced out of the realm of questioning into the realm of certainty...There will be no question in anyone's mind that the discarding of the physical body will leave a man still a conscious living entity. He will be known to be perpetuating his existence in a realm lying behind the physical. He will be known to be still alive, awake and aware. This will be brought about by:

a. The development of a power within the physical eye of a human being...will reveal the etheric body...men will be seen occupying that body.

b. The growth of the number of people who have the power to use the "reawakened third eye" will demonstrate immortality, for they will with facility see the [413] man who has discarded his etheric body as well as his physical body.

c. A discovery in the field of photography will prove survival.

d. Through the use of the radio by those who have passed over will communication eventually be set up and reduced to a true science.

e. Man will eventually be keyed up to a perception and to a contact which will enable him to see through, which will reveal the nature of the fourth dimension, and will blend the subjective and objective worlds together into a new world. Death will lose its terrors and that particular fear will come to an end.
- Page 183-184.

Discipleship in the New Age, Vol. I:

You must always bear in mind that the consciousness remains the same whether in physical incarnation or out of incarnation, and that development can be carried on with even greater ease than when limited and conditioned by the brain consciousness.
- Page 81.
