THE GOLDEN DAWN
INTRODUCTORY LESSON IV
but surely over the path of time, man learns to realize how essential it is that
he control the inner man, as well as the outer, if he wants peace and harmony
with a full life of all the good things of the world’s goods as well as a
degree of spiritual attainment.
other words, we are saying that suppressing ones inhibitions is not changing the
situation. This is brought forcibly
to us as we study the subject of vibrations and start to know and understand in
a simple, rational and scientific manner how the body and mind of man operates.
and experiments in the mental sciences has brought the religionist up short,
because of the absolute proof of the existence of telepathic communications of
human beings and that of animals, which showed the animals also were receptive
to thought waves of human beings, even though they do not understand the words,
but which were trans- formed into knowing, and thus, reactive.
William Cook did extensive work in the vibratory wave transmission of thought
and wrote several theses regarding our communication of intelligence, showing
clearly that the brain did send out well-nigh perfect, equally clear, wave
vibrations and that this was produced over the matter in the atmosphere, or the
air, by one being, speaking or thinking to another.
he believed that over a great distance, the potential strength of the brain
waves would be diffused in all general directions.
They would affect all sensitives within a reasonable radius of action
instead of impressing only one brain.
According to certain work which has been done since 1919, we have found that telepathic communications are a reality over long spans of space. In speaking of vibrations, that energy of which the spiritual body of man, which permits it, is made, is called by the name of the spirit by some people. But, we use the term God-force, as I explained to you, which keeps all matter alive. It is the third point of the triangle which makes every nerve, cell, and drop of blood in the body alive. It is of the mind of the Father and His characteristics
is through this which F.A. Mesmer learned and worked with hypnotism.
It is a fact that Mesmer undoubtedly believed he had found a new
principle that emanated from a person’s body, and especially from the
is interesting here to note that man actually has no psychic body, as some
people say as fact, but that the spiritual body, or electrical structure -- as
we call it -- of man is filled or permeated with the psychic effluvia and this
was what Mesmer had discovered he could control.
Through this control of the nerve impulses, he could reach the motor
systems of the body and thus, put the person under his mental control.
interesting side note here regarding this subject is that this is the way a
bloodhound follows man. The psychic
effluvia dripping off the body of man as he passes over the ground leaves a
vibratory scent which the dog picks up and follows.
It is also the reason why when a person passes through a shallow body of
water, or pool, or stream, that the hound may not follow the trail and loses the
spiritual energy, or characteristic of the energy, which permeates all living
matter, has a definite distinction between the various forms of electrical
energy, spiritual energy and vital forces which is called the Life Force, etc.
all comes under the category of electrical and vibratory forces which receive
their source of emanation from our sun (son) of God.
thought cannot be repeated often enough as it is a key to this New Age and
should become a part of our predominate thinking as we look and work towards
is also a positive scientific fact that when we use mind nerve force in
intellectual, or spiritual, work, we are utilizing power and energy and
depleting our vital forces of the body as much, if not more, than in common
physical exertion. In fact, mental
depletion of vitality comes on much more subtly than that of over-use of
order to gain control of concentration of the mind, it is necessary to work for
it. Use the following for one week,
erect and relaxed. Then bend your
head down. Look at your feet and think about them. Picture
them for about a minute. Then, put
your hands out in front of you in right angles to the body.
Concentrate on the left hand and think
about it for about a minute. Then
drop your hands and see which hand you can feel more movement in.
If your feet feel the same as your legs, then you will know and develop
the consciousness of the fact that your mental attention to something actually
projects creative forces and the vitalities of life.
exists solely because of a certain rate of vibration.
The difference between life and death is the difference of the rate of
vibration and the difference between a brain that is alive and active and one
that is in a state called dead.
action of the brain and its effects on the blood coursing through the brain is
the effect of higher vibrations of the blood reacting to the centers of every

is like a motor generator and produces an electrical current frequency of about
100 cycles per second.
is what we call brain waves. They
are smooth, rhythmic, and similar in nature to other minute electrical currents.
the emotional conditions and the effects of thought, or the influence of disease
that take hold of the body -- these patterns of vibrations fluctuate through to
the brain. It can be shown that they
change by the use of an electroencephalograph.
This is activated through the nerve ends in the outer periphery and can
be registered on a table or graph which will show the variations and patterns of
brain waves. It can be used to
distinguish between depressant persons or ones under the effects of different

They are electrical impulses -- therefore, a thought is an exhilarant.
The vibration naturally courses through and around the brain, as an
organ, as a composite thing -- it exhilarates the vibration of the brain.
Sleep slows the action bringing rest and peace.

sensitive to impressions each day and strengthens its function.
