A Treatise on White Magic - Rule Three - Soul Light and Body Light
Students must remember that it is possible to have reached a high stage of spiritual consciousness without seeing any of this brain radiance. This is altogether in the nature of phenomena, and is largely determined by the caliber of the physical body, by past karma and achievement, and by the ability of the aspirant to bring down "power from on high", and to hold that energy steady in the brain center whilst he himself in meditation is detached from the form aspect, and can look serenely at it.

When this has been accomplished (and it is not an objective to be worked for, but is simply an indication to be registered in the consciousness and then dismissed) the consequent stimulation produces a reaction of the physical body. The magnetic power of the light in the head, and the radiant force of the soul produce stimulation. The centers begin to vibrate, and their vibration awakens the atoms of the material body until eventually the powers of the vibrating etheric body have swung even the lowest center into line with the highest. Thus the fires of the body (the sum total of the energy of the atoms) are swept into increased activity until such time [108] as there is a rising up the spine of that fiery energy. This is brought about by the magnetic control of the soul, seated "on the throne between the eyebrows".

Here enters in the work of one of the means of yoga, abstraction or withdrawal. Where the three lights are blended, where the centers are aroused and the atoms are also vibrating, it becomes possible for the man to center all three in the head at will. Then, by the act of the will and the knowledge of certain words of Power he can enter into samadhi and be withdrawn from his body, carrying the light with him. In this way the greater light (the three fused and blended) illuminates the three worlds of man's endeavors and "the light is thrown upward" and illuminates all the spheres of man's conscious and unconscious experience. This is spoken of in the occult writings of the Masters in these words:

"Then the Bull of God carries the light in his forehead, and his eye transmits the radiance; His head, with magnetic force, resembles the blazing sun, and from the lotus of the head, the path of light issues. It enters into the Greater Being, producing a living fire. The Bull of God sees the Solar Angel, and knows that Angel to be the light wherein he walks. "

Then the work of the four proceeds. The four are at-one. The Solar Angel is identified with his instrument; the life of the sheaths is subordinated to the life of the inner divinity; the light of the sheaths is fused with the light of the soul. The head, the heart, and the base of the spine are geometrically aligned and certain developments then become possible.

In these two Rules, the foundation of the magical work of the soul has been laid down. Let us list, for the sake of clarity, the steps outlined:

  1. The Solar Angel begins the work of initiating the Personality. [109]
  2. He withdraws his forces from soul enterprises in the spiritual Kingdom, and centers his attention on the work to be done.
  3. He enters into deep meditation.
  4. Magnetic rapport with the instrument in the three worlds is instituted.
  5. The instrument, man, responds, and also enters into meditation.
  6. The work proceeds in ordered stages and with cyclic activity.
  7. The light of the soul is thrown downwards.
  8. The light of the vital body and the physical form is synchronized with that of the head.
  9. The centers swing into activity.
  10. The light of the soul and the two other aspects of light are so intense that now all life in the three worlds is illumined.
  11. Alignment is produced, the work of discipleship and of initiation becomes possible and proceeds according to the Law of Being.
