Esoteric Healing - Chapter I - The Psychological Causes of Disease
I realize well the technicalities which I have given here and their difficulty and apparent uselessness. It might be asked: Why should it be necessary to be so meticulous in enumerating the physical, psychological and systemic details of a purely academic nature when, by an act of the will and of divine power, and by the use of certain Words of Power, healing can be accomplished? These ideas are basically true, but are based upon a misapprehension - in time and space. If all healers were Masters of the Wisdom, if they were all clairvoyant, if they comprehended the Law of Karma and its working out in the life of the patient, if they had the full cooperation of the patient, and if they had the ability to add to all the above requirements the use of certain Words and Mantrams, then the academic knowledge would indeed be needless. But these requirements are not and can not be met. Healers, as a rule, have none of these powers. That they frequently heal (though not as often as they think they do) is true, but when successful they have succeeded in doing one or other of the following: [167]
  • Healed the patient when his destiny and fate so willed it and his soul had therefore drawn its vehicle (the physical man) into the radiatory aura of a healer or a healing group. The probability is that the patient would have recovered in any case but that the process was hastened by the applied effort and attention, plus faith.
  • Interfered with the immediate design or pattern of the patient's life, and so postponed certain processes of spiritual tuition which were needed. This is very apt to be forgotten. It is too intricate a subject to be dealt with here, but I may be able to make it somewhat clearer as we deal with our final section.

Therefore (until there is full knowledge) it is vitally necessary that the structure of power and vitality and the network of energies and forces which compose the human organism should be studied. A mental grasp of the processes of healing is needed; and the reasons which make them seem difficult and complicated, unnecessary and wasteful of time, are as follows:

  • The inability of even the most advanced human mind to grasp themes and subjects as a whole. The synthetic element is as yet lacking. At present, the teaching and processes involved must be mastered step by step, detail by detail, precept by precept, application by application. But the future holds the promise clear, and the ability of the human eye to function synthetically, to grasp a landscape, for instance, in its broad and salient outlines and to do this simultaneously and in a flash of vision is the guarantee of the future technique of the race. One look by the illumined mind, one great radiation of love, and the healer or the healing group [168] will know whether to heal, to aid the effort of the patient - a much slower process - or to refrain from healing.
  • The inertia of the average man or woman, which rebels against the effort needed to master the technical side of healing. It is so much easier to fall back on divinity (a divinity in reality latent but not expressive) and "let God do it." It is so much easier to recognize love and the outpouring of love than to master the processes whereby it can be made effective - or the nature of that which must be affected.

These are points requiring careful attention and consideration. They merit reflection. The synthetic power of the mind, aided by true love, will some day be the instrument of all true healers. In the meantime, for the sake of the future and in order to aid the formulation of the coming healing art - based on the understanding of energy, its inflow and circulation - this treatise will deal somewhat with the academic side. After all, the facts given are facts in existence and are truly present, as are those emotions which the average healer calls love.
