Esoteric Healing - Chapter I - The Psychological Causes of Disease
This third group of difficulties, problems and diseases are of course those of people upon all the rays, but first ray people have a definite predisposition to these specific troubles. At the same time, when they rightly utilize their latent powers, they can overcome by the right use of the OM, and finally of the Sound, the incidental problems and difficulties far more easily than those on other rays. You have here a reference to the Lost Word of Masonry and to the Sound of the Ineffable Name.

The sound of the AUM, the sound of the OM, and the Sound itself, are all related to vibration and its differing and varied effects. The secret of the Law of Vibration is progressively revealed as people learn to sound forth the Word in its three aspects. Students would do well to ponder on the distinction between the breath and the sound, between the process of breathing and the process of creating vibratory activity. They are related but distinct from each other. One is related to Time and the other to Space and (as the Old Commentary puts it) "the sound, the final and yet initiating sound, concerns that which is neither Time nor Space; it lies outside the manifested All, the Source of all that is and yet is naught" (or no-thing. A.A.B.).

For this reason, disciples on the fourth ray usually can develop by the power of the intuition an understanding of the OM. This ray of harmony through conflict (the conflict of the pairs of opposites) is necessarily concerned with the bringing in of that vibratory activity which will lead to unity, to harmony and to right relations, and to the release of the intuition.

d. The problems incident to the activity or inactivity of the centers are perhaps the most important from the standpoint of disease, because the centers govern the glandular [133] system and the glands have a direct relation to the blood stream and they condition also the major and most important areas in the human body; they have both a physiological and a psychological effect upon the personality and its interior and exterior contacts and relations. The reaction is primarily physical but the effects are largely psychological, and it is therefore this fourth group upon which I shall principally enlarge, dealing with the diseases of disciples and giving some definite instructions upon the centers. This will indicate more clearly than elsewhere the causes of the many human ills and physical difficulties.

Before proceeding to our next point, try to grasp somewhat more fully the Laws of Healing and the Rules given thus far and repeated here to facilitate your endeavors.
