A Treatise on White Magic - Rule Fourteen - The Awakening of the Centers
The Awakening of the Centers

Speaking more technically and therefore warranting the use of the word Instructions in connection with this treatise for aspirants and disciples, it must be carefully borne in mind that the main task of the aspirant is the handling of energies, both in himself and in the world of physical phenomena and externalization. This consequently involves an understanding of the centers and of their awakening. But understanding must come first, and the awakening at a much later date in the sequence of time. This awakening will fall into two stages:

First, there is the stage wherein, by the practice of a disciplined life and by the purification of the thought life, the seven centers are automatically brought into a right condition of rhythm, vitality and vibratory activity. This stage involves no danger and there is no directed thought - in connection with the centers - permitted to the aspirant. By that I mean he is not allowed to concentrate his mind upon any one center, nor may he seek to awaken or energize them. He must remain engrossed with the [588] problem of purifying the bodies in which the centers are found, which are primarily the astral, etheric and physical bodies, remembering ever that the endocrine system and the seven major glands, in particular, are the effectual externalizations of the seven major centers. In this stage, the aspirant is working all around the centers and is dealing with their environing matter and with the living substance which completely surrounds them. This is all that can be safely undertaken by the majority, and it is with this stage that the bulk of the aspirants in the world today are engaged and with which they must remain engaged for a long time to come.

Secondly, there is the stage wherein the centers, through the effective work of the earlier stage, become what is esoterically called "released within the prison house"; they can now become the subject (under proper direction by a teacher) of definite methods of awakening and of charging, - the methods differing according to the ray, personality and egoic, of the aspirant. Hence the difficulty of the subject and the impossibility of giving general and blanket rules.

It is interesting here to note, even though it has no bearing on the matter of personal training, that this method, first of a long period of purification and later of energizing scientifically, is the one employed by the guiding hierarchy which stands behind world affairs. Steadily They have been working at the task of clarifying world matter, and bringing about world purification on a large scale. This is the first stage of the work and only became generally possible when man became a more truly thinking entity, during the past few centuries, on a wide level. This purification is going on now in all departments of human existence, for humanity now stands, or rather three-fifths of it stands, on the path of probation. Through welfare and uplift movements and the wide spread of sanitation, the work goes forward [589] on the physical plane; through political upheavals which reveal abuses; through economic discontent which is after all a striving to change that which is undesirable so as to give the human unit conditions of living which will lead to thought and from thought to soul control; through religious propaganda and the efforts of the many organizations and groups throughout the world which hold before the minds of men what I might symbolically call "the hope of Heaven" (using the word "Heaven" as a symbol of perfection and of purity), the work of this stage is going steadily forward. So successful has it been that now the filth and impurities which surround the world soul and which keep humanity from its true expression are known and recognized and there is consequently a steady drive towards betterment. All has been brought to the surface, and the result seems appalling and uncontrollable to those who only see the surface. But underneath, the deep river of purity and truth is flowing strong.

One evidence of the success of the world movement towards pure living and the destruction of that which hinders is that the work of the second stage is now in process of initiation. The hierarchy, for the first time in world history, can now work directly with the centers in the body of humanity. Thus we have now the formation of the new Group of World Workers, who, in their totality throughout the world, constitute the heart center and the "center between the eyebrows" of the etheric body of the human family. Through the one, spiritual life can begin to flow in and vitalize all the centers, and through the other, the vision can be seen and the inner worlds sensed and known.
