Esoteric Healing - Chapter IV - Some Questions Answered
On the Use of the Lord's Image

Here we touch upon a point of real interest. The use of the Lord's image is frequently of vital importance, but - and it is here that I seek to lay the emphasis - it must be the image arrived at by oneself through the medium of the expansion of the Christ consciousness in one's own life, and by arriving at the stage of conscious discipleship. At that particular stage, when a man is definitely linked with a Master and His group, he is then, automatically and as an individual, linked with the Master of all Masters. He can then, via his own soul and the soul of his particular group, draw on the force of Maitreya Buddha. Why, think you, is there no good and true picture of the Blessed One. There are only a few speculations by the devotees of the early church and none by those who knew Him. The reason is a definite one. There is no true image of Him because it must be upon our hearts and not upon our canvases. We arrive at knowledge of Him because He is ours, as we are His. Do you understand that whereof I speak? He is the world Healer and Savior. He works because He is the embodied soul of all Reality. He works today, as He worked in Palestine two thousand years ago, through groups. There He worked through the three beloved disciples, through the twelve apostles, through the chosen seventy, and the interested five hundred. Ponder on this fact, little emphasized. Now He works through His Masters and Their groups, and thereby greatly intensifies His efforts. He can and will work through all groups just in so far as they fit themselves for planned service, for the distribution of love, and come into conscious alignment with the greater potency of the inner groups. [361]

You will find (fairly soon perhaps) that healing groups will employ mantrams of a definite kind, and that in those mantrams the name of the Blessed One will appear. But the mantram for His coming age is not yet for use. The world is not yet ready for the potency which it would release. Today, is there a more potent mantram than the oft spoken word: "For Christ's sake and for the glory of His Name"? But these words must be spoken with love and will behind them or else they are but an empty symbol and a sounding cymbal. Forget this not.
