Union and Harmony


It is a law of occult dynamics that “a given amount of energy expanded on the spiritual or astral plane is productive of far greater results than the same amount expended on the physical objective plane of existence.”  This state will last till man’s spiritual intuitions are fully opened, which will not happen before we fairly cast off our thick coats of matter; until we begin acting from within, instead of ever following impulses from without; namely, those produced by our physical senses and gross selfish body.  Until then the only palliative to the evils of life is union and harmony—a Brotherhood IN ACTU, and altruism not simply in name.  The suppression of one single bad cause will suppress not one, but a variety of bad effects.  And if a Brotherhood or even a number Brotherhoods may not be able to prevent nations from occasionally cutting each other’s throats—still unity in thought and action, and philosophical research into the mysteries of being, will always prevent some, while trying to comprehend that which has hitherto remained to them a riddle, from creating additional causes in a world already so full of woe and evil.
