THE RISE OF
THE GOLDEN DAWN

of the most peculiar of all spiritual developments is
attaining unconsciously an idea or understanding of how to
work with the self.
Because we have gained control of mind and are able
to work with the self,
somehow or other, through some phenomenon of Nature, the
radiation from the brain and body that would normally show
up on an encephalograph, or a sensitive potentiometer is no
longer going out into the world around us.
are absorbing the truth from the self
without probing the question consciously.
Actually, we are contemplating -- so to speak -- but
when teaching, these contemplations come into our mind as if
they were thought-out ideas.
entire function is done in a conscious state while doing
other active things.
The world in general has lost a very valuable tool of
teaching in not having God's Computer, the self,
ever-active in the individual.
we talk very glibly about become the Body of Christ, or a
part thereof. But, I am certain that the Body of Christ
surely does not contain in its cosmic density some of the
thoughts which pass through many of our minds during the
course of the day.
waves emanating from us are our teaching broadcast schedule
-- our daily performance on the airwaves.
Would you honestly teach to a class what you are

whenever we use the word "vibration", we are
actually talking about vibration of a physical nature the
same as might be heard and experienced from a tuning fork
except on a more inaudible level, and perhaps not as loud.
might pick up a book on new thought and find a quotation
"By this law, we find that when we think of
health, the thought produces health vibrations and these
vibrations flow through the body and produce health."
This is just a partial truth.
If you are interested in just a partial truth, then
you are not thinking like a brother of this Order.
do we mean by thinking health?
What is thought?
What is health?
What is disease?
What is health vibration and how does it produce
you were to say:
"I accept health, Father, and perfection through
the Lord Jesus," then I would go along with you because
this is a perfect pattern of the spiritual body.
But we must learn to be critical of our words and
learn to speak simply and demonstrate the laws which the
Master has taught us.

that keeps all matter alive and active.
It is the third point of the Triangle which makes
every cell, every nerve, every drop of blood in the body

modern medicine and psychology, they teach us and have
proven that in the nervous system of man, an energy -- which
they have been trying to analyze -- exists.
Many great scientists have worked on it, but all they
have been able to do is give it a name -- a name to the
energy which flows through the nerves.
They call it electrical nerve energy.
They have found that it vibrates like electricity and
has properties and conditions like electricity and that it
flows just like electricity flows through a copper wire.
principle thing to remember about this is that the energy in
the nerves is a vibrational force which we call Spirit.
It flows into every part of the body and causes
action there of various kinds needed for perfect health and
body function so that life is maintained.
us remember one thing -- that through control of mind and
good concentrative abilities, this energy -- this central
supply -- can be directed along the thin wires of the nerves
to any part of the body.
Therefore, it serves as a means by which healing can
be done -- by the Spirit moving in all living matter.
we continue to work on our consciousness of our own vehicle
and learn its distinctions, the Spirit will motivate the
energy and the vital forces of life in our body.
So always keep in mind that all energies are
vibration and have their origin in the emanations from the
the electrical sciences, a generator is presumed and defined
as a piece of equipment which generates electrical energy.
But the modern field of engineering knows that this
is an unfortunate name because it gives the impression that
is generates electricity though it does nothing of the kind.
is in the air everywhere.
It is one of the phases of the sun's energy.
A generator is nothing more than a pump or a device
which controls and directs electrical flow through a
conductor to operate other electrical apparatus.
the most beautiful and powerful of all energies -- because
it carries a mighty force -- mightier than any other force
man knows -- is that of a bolt of lightning.
Lightning has been subtitled as static electricity
because of the characteristics which it functions under.
It is hard to control and conduct over a conductor
for any distance.
to the bolt of lightning, electrical energy can be reduced
and confined to such small amounts, or what we might call,
"micro-amounts", that is impossible to sense it
with our ordinary senses.
instance, in the radio set, there is electrical energy known
as high frequency waves resembling brain waves.
This requires delicate tuning and adjustment when
picked up to be able to be transformed back into audible
Yet, this fine and delicate radio wave has the
ability to penetrate walls of a building, or even into deep
vaults under the surface level of the earth.
fruit and living things emanate electrical energy.
This energy can be picked up and registered on a
It is possible to pick up a handkerchief that has
been in a woman's hand for only a few hours and measure the
energy in it.
Thus, energy from the microwave to the bolt of
lightning is a very real form and flow of energy.
Or, I might say, from the microcosm to God.
old mystics in times past used to practice thaumaturgy.
They attempted to read the life condition and nature
of an individual from any article which the person owned.
The claim was that any article worn or handled for
any length of time would have its vibrant condition changed
by the electrical impulses from the body and the central
They could tell by holding the article what nature

A later modern name for this practice was
is nothing more of less than using one's spiritual senses
and perceiving the reproduction of these vibrations in the
brain and having them thrown on the brain screen where you
get the picture of the holder.
If you will rise and say, "Peace be unto the world," or any other phrase, the thought of it in your mind causes certain vibrations of the Spirit to flow along certain nerves causing the muscles to contract, and this makes your body rise from the chair. Vibration sent along the nervous system causes the mouth and tongue and muscles of the larynx to act, and this causes the sound vibrations to emit forth, and the words you had in mind come forth and travel through space. This description is how thought in the mind produces actions and results. This is how thought vibration works.
