A Treatise on White Magic - Rule Twelve - The Prisoners of the Planet
It is interesting here to note that death is governed by the Principle of Liberation, and not by that of Limitation. Death is only recognized as a factor to be dealt with by self-conscious lives and is only misunderstood by human beings, who are the most glamored and deluded of all incarnated lives.

The next point to be noted is that each kingdom in nature acts in two ways:

  1. As the liberator of the kingdom of forms which has not reached its particular stage of conscious awareness.
  2. As the prison house of lives that have transited into it from the level of consciousness next beneath it. [535]

Let it be remembered always that each field of awareness in its boundaries constitutes a prison, and that the objective of all work of liberation is to release the consciousness and expand its field of contacts. Where there are boundaries of any kind, where a field of influence is circumscribed, and where the radius of contact is limited there you have a prison. Ponder on this statement for it holds much of truth. Where there is an apprehension of a vision and of a wide unconquered territory of contacts then there will inevitably be a sense of imprisonment and of cramping. Where there is realization of worlds to conquer, of truths to be learnt, of conquests to be made, of desires to be achieved, of knowledges to be mastered, there you will have a festering sense of limitation, goading on the aspirant to renewed effort and driving the living entity on along the path of evolution. Instinct, governing the vegetable and animal kingdoms, develops into intellect in the human family. Later intellect merges into intuition and intuition into illumination. When the superhuman consciousness is evoked these two - intuition and illumination - take the place of instinct and of intelligence.

Illumination - what does that lead to? Straight to the summit of achievement, to the fulfilment of cyclic destiny, to the emergence of the radiant glory, to wisdom, power, God consciousness. These words however mean but little or nothing in comparison with a Reality which can only be sensed by any human being when his intuition is awakened and his mind illumined.

Grasping these facts anent imprisonment how, to be practical, can a man become a releasing agent for the "prisoners of the planet"? What can humanity as a whole achieve along this line? What can the individual do?

The task of humanity falls primarily into three divisions of labor. Three groups of prisoners can be [536] released and will eventually find their way out of their prison house through the instrumentality of man. Already human beings are working in all three fields.

  1. Prisoners within the human form. This involves working with one's fellow men.
  2. Prisoners within the animal kingdom, and already much is being done in this field.
  3. Prisoners within the forms of the vegetable world. A beginning has been made here.

Much work is being accomplished by man for men, and through the agency of scientific, religious and educational endeavor, the human consciousness is steadily expanding until one by one the Sons of God are breaking through their limitations into the world of souls. In the retrospect of history, the picture of the emerging prisoner, Man, can be seen in clear delineation. Little by little he has mastered the planetary boundaries; little by little, he has grown from the stage of cave man to that of a Shakespeare, a Newton, a Leonardo da Vinci, an Einstein, a St. Francis of Assisi, to a Christ and a Buddha. The capacity of man to achieve in any field of human expression seems practically unlimited, and if the past few thousand years have seen such a stupendous growth, what shall we see in the next five thousand years? If prehistoric man, little more than an animal, has grown into the genius, what unfoldment is not possible as more and more of innate divinity makes its presence felt? The superman is with us. What will the world manifest when all mankind is tending towards a concrete manifestation of superhuman powers?

Man's consciousness is being released in varying directions and dimensions. It is expanding into the world of spiritual realities and beginning to embrace the fifth or spiritual kingdom, the kingdom of souls. It is interpenetrating, through scientific research, the world of [537] superhuman endeavor, and investigating the many aspects of the Form of God, and of the forms that constitute the Form.
