Esoteric Healing - Chapter I - The Psychological Causes of Disease
2. Difficulties incident to Soul Contact

Today we begin a study of the difficulties, the diseases and the psychological troubles (neurological and mental) of the aspirants and of the disciples of the world. These we shall study definitely from the angle of the seven centers, as well as considering the results of the forces and energies (I use these distinctive words advisedly) which pour through them. Much that I shall say will be open to question from the viewpoint of orthodox medicine, yet, at the same time, orthodox medicine has been steadily drifting towards the occult point of view. I shall not attempt to relate the esoteric attitude of healing, its propositions and methods, to the modern schools of therapy. The two are gradually approaching each other, in any case. The lay reader, for whom these teachings are intended, will get a clearer comprehension of my thesis if it is kept relatively free from the technical terms and the academic attitudes of the medical sciences. They would but serve to confuse, and my effort is to give a general picture of the underlying causes of outer physical ills. I seek to present certain aspects of occult therapy for which mankind is now ready, reminding you that the presentation is naturally inadequate and partial, and for that reason may appear incorrect and to be challenging to those who look ever for outlets for human credulity. That, however, concerns me not. Time will prove the accuracy of my statements. [136]

The new medicine will deal with factors which are dimly recognized at present and which are not, as yet, brought into any real or factual relationship to man and his body. The basic theory upon which the new medical teaching will rest can best be summed up in the statement that there is in reality nothing but energy to be considered, and the forces which are resistant to or assimilative of higher or different types of energy. Let me therefore start by giving you a new Law to add to the four already communicated. The previous Laws have been in the nature of abstract propositions, and unless related to this fifth Law will remain somewhat vague and meaningless.
