The place where land, water and air meet is the head centre. When the personality is lifted and the soul descends, the lives meet and merge and the magical work may commence. This is the plane of mind and fire. The magician must register impressions correctly and accurately in order to create the thoughtforms that will be received by the brain and can bring these “vital airs” in the brain cavity into photographic forms of the plan and purpose “seen clearly” and interpreted accurately. The soul will provide the image, and this will be reflected on the mind and be transferred by the ethers for dense physical plane expression. Air represents the Christ principle. This higher principle must control and dominate. Consciousness continues to grow and the veils are lifted with ever-wider and deeper penetration of the higher planes. There are three stages in the form-making process. First, from the jewel in the lotus, outside of the element of time and space, the soul consciousness stands and visions the completed work. Second, in the egoic lotus the impression then sweeps the mind into thoughtform making activity. The quality of the chitta or mind stuff if illumined, can produce the proper interpretation and response, congruent with its prototype. If not, the result will be imbalanced and incorrect, full of distortion. Meditation is the foundation of correct impression and of accurate response to egoic intent. The aspirant builds the vision of the perfected man and the lower nature is subordinated so that over time, the disciple appears as the ideal man, the true server on the physical plane, coordinating all towards this ideal image, making this image a reality by forcing conformity to the ideal. The third stage in the form-making process, the thoughtform created in the brain becomes a focussing point for the soul expression. Through the right eye the “vital energy of the spirit can express itself.” (The eyes open.) The throat centre expresses the soul or second aspect. (The voice proclaiming.) Then the hands through which the third aspect can work serve in helpfulness to deliver the creative energy. (The hands conferring.) The unique triangle of distribution is complete. These instructions were given or intended for aspirants in the Tibetan’s group and originally sent out as lesson units. This program concludes on page 253 of A Treatise on White Magic.
