A Treatise on White Magic - Rule Ten - The Present Age and the Future
I would like to state that there are five things which those who choose the path of occultism need to cultivate, and that the group should specially seek to attain. They are as follows:
  1. Consecration of motive.
  2. Utter fearlessness.
  3. The cultivation of the imagination, balanced wisely by the reasoning faculty. [344]
  4. A capacity to weigh the evidence wisely, and to accept only that which is compatible with the highest instinct and intuition.
  5. A willingness to experiment.

These five tendencies, coupled with purity of life and regulation of thought will lead to the sphere of achievement. Remember too that it is not purposed that you should find out all the knowable, but only just as much of it as may be employed wisely for the illumination of the race and of those whom you can each, in your own place, influence.

A real problem, as you all realize, lies in the achieving of utter fearlessness. All fear, doubt, and worry have to be eliminated. If this can be done the development of the inner point of contact and the knowledge of how to tap the sources of inspiration will increase in a wonderful manner. So many close the sources of information through an uncontrolled emotional nature. The astral body can be controlled. How?

1. By direct inhibition. This method can be used to advantage by beginners, but it is not the best method to follow. It reacts on the physical body, leads to congestion in the astral body, and to a similar condition in the etheric vehicle. It often produces headache, congestion of the liver and other disorders.

2. By a direct realization of the issues at stake and the consciousness that, for a pupil of the Master, nothing comes to pass but what can lead to increased knowledge and development, and greater usefulness in service. Fear with many is not based on timidity (a paradoxical statement!) but is often based on a mental condition, such as pride. Those who are becoming polarized in the mental body, find their fears allied to the intellect. They are therefore harder to overcome than the fears of a person polarized in the astral body. The latter can bring the [345] intellect to bear on the elimination of fear in the astral body. The mental types have to call directly on the Ego, for always the higher must be called in to deal with the lower. Hence the necessity for always keeping the channel clear. Do not crush out fear. Force it out by the dynamic power of substitution. This leads to my third suggestion that students in the group should cure the fear habit by -

3. A direct method of relaxation, concentration, stillness and flushing the entire personality with pure white light. Proceed in the following manner:

You are, we will say, in a state of panic; suggestions of great unpleasantness are crowding in; your imagination is running riot, and your mind enforces the riot. Forget not that the fears of an emotional person are not so potent as yours. Having a strong mental body, you clothe your fear reactions with mental matter, highly vitalized, which causes a powerful thought-form to be created. This circulates between you and the feared event. Realizing this you will proceed to seek quietness. You will relax your physical body, endeavor to quiet your astral body as far as may be, and to steady the mind. Then visualizing yourself (the personality), the soul and the Master - He, as the apex of the triangle, - you will with deliberation call down a stream of pure white light, and, pouring it through your lower vehicles, you will cleanse away all that hinders. Continue this process until you realize that the needed work is accomplished. At first you may have to do it many times. Later just once will suffice, and later still the whole process may be needless, for you will have achieved conquest.

This applies to the fears connected with the personality. You use the love aspect, flooding yourself with love and light. The legitimate fears which arise [346] from things connected with the circumstances of the work to be done, and from the knowledge of materialized obstructions to the work must be treated somewhat differently. Here again a definite method must be followed:

  • Still the physical body.
  • Quiet by temporary inhibition the astral body.
  • Link up with the Ego, and definitely reason out the proper method of procedure in meeting the difficulty. Having exhausted all the higher rational methods and having clearly seen your course of action, you then -
  • Raise your vibration as high as may be and call down, from intuitional levels, added light on the difficulty. If your intuition and reasoning faculty produce harmony and thus show the way out, then proceed. As an occult fact past all controversy, you know that naught can now happen but what is for the best. You are sure of guidance, and he who sees thus the end from the beginning makes no error.
