On Cancer


Cancer is a gift to modern man from the ancient humanity, and the scourge of this disease was the major factor, which devastated the inhabitants of ancient humanity. The roots of this dire evil are deep-seated in the emotional or desire nature, and are grounded in the emotional body.

Cancer was based similarly on a previous shift of the life force from the physical body into that of the emotional nature, producing an overdevelopment of the cellular life, through overstimulation.

Cancer is primarily a disease of inhibition.

Cancer is more definitely in the class of diseases, which are connected with inner emotional desires and the violent suppressed wish-life of many.

Cancer, in our modern time, is definitely as well a result of the activity of the lower concrete mind and of the stimulation of the etheric body, which the mind can bring about. It is a major disease incident to stimulation, as far as the western masses are concerned.

Cancer is a disease most definitely related to the centres, and it will be found that the centre in the area wherein the cancer exists is overactive, with a consequent increase of energy pouring through the related bodily substance. This energy and the overstimulation of a centre can be due not only to the activity of the centre and its consequent radiation, but also the suppression imposed by the mind upon any activity of a particular centre. This brings about a damming up of energy, and again we have the creation of too much concentrated energy in any particular area.

Though both men and women suffer from the disease of cancer, the general cause is not identical, though the basic cause remains the same. Women, owing to the risks they run in childbearing, have revolted on a large scale against this as the only form of life expression, and it is along this line that their major inhibitions are found. They do not suffer so much from the general inhibition of the emotional-desire-feeling expression. Men do suffer from this latter inhibition and have a tradition or a marked tendency to greater emotional control in the handling of life than have women. The general field of their inhibited life tendency of man is therefore of greater extent, and consequently more men suffer from cancer than do women, though it is a dread disease, feared by all.

In all disease of malignant nature, there is a vital core or a living spot of energy, which is absorbing, slowly or quickly, as the case may be, the life force in the man. In the early stages of such a disease as cancer, the vital core is not found until the malignant condition is established so potently that it is exceedingly difficult to do anything helpful. Yet the cure is only possible in these early developments and then the cure can be effected, but only again if the will of the patient is invoked.

One of the main sources of cancer as related to the sacral centre, and therefore to the sex organs, has been the well-intentioned suppression of the sex life. Energy follows the direction of thought, with the result that that particularly magnetic type of energy attracted an increasing number of cells and atoms to itself; therein is found the source of the tumours, growths and cancers so prevalent today.  The same thing can be said about the violent inhibition imposed by certain people upon all emotional reactions and feelings.  In their effort to control the astral body, these people resort to a process of direct inhibition and suppression. That suppression makes of the solar plexus centre a great reservoir of drastically retained energy. Transmutation of the emotions into aspiration and love and directed control is not present, and the existence of this vibrant reservoir of power brings about cancer of the stomach, of the liver, and sometimes of the entire area of the abdomen. These causes (over-activity of a centre and the retention of energy, unexpressed and inhibited) are fruitful sources of cancer.

All diseases - except those due to accidents, wounds resulting in infections, and epidemics - can in the last analysis be traced to some condition of the centres, and therefore to energy running wild, to energy overactive and misdirected or insufficient and lacking altogether, or retained instead of used and transmuted into a higher corresponding centre of energy.

A proper research on the ductless glands (and later of the entire glandular structure of the body) and of the blood stream will establish them as the paramount source of physical difficulty; inevitably, though slowly and patiently, the investigators will be forced back upon the centres and will come to include in their calculations a subjective nervous system (the entire subjective system of nadis which underlie the nerves throughout the body), and will demonstrate that these factors are responsible for the major diseases and the many subsidiary diseases and obscure complaints which plague humanity.

We seek only to emphasise the subjective causes and the objective effects. The two must be related.  The activity - excessive or inadequate - of the centres is the subjective cause, but remains yet unrecognised.
The causes (the apparent causes, which are themselves the result of a true subjective cause) are initiated by the physical man himself, either in this life or an earlier one.

How to cure Cancer

The clue to perfect physical health can be directly traced to full control of the centres, to their balanced state of energy reception and distribution, and to the effect, which they produce upon the entire ductless glandular system. By this means every area of the body is properly supplied with the needed forces and is thus kept in perfect condition.

As the human race develops right emotional control we shall see the gradual disappearance of the phenomena of cancer.

In the secret of right transmutation lies the cure of cancer, and this will eventually be realised; …using this phrase not only symbolically but also technically and scientifically.

Little can be done in cancer cases unless there is the intelligent cooperation of the one to be healed, for the only method is to blend the directed will of the patient and of the healing group together into one functioning unit of force. When this has been done, then the invoked and concentrated energy will follow thought, under the ancient law, and so stimulate the area surrounding the cancer (that is, the healthy tissue) that the absorption of the weakened, diseased tissue by the stronger tissue can take place. If the energy is directed to the cancer itself, the cancerous condition will be stimulated and the trouble many times increased. The curing of cancer in the early stages falls therefore into two parts:

- The stimulating of the healthy tissue.
- The building in of new tissue to replace the diseased tissue, which is being gradually absorbed and driven out.

Only through meditation and alignment and right practices, the centres will be brought under the direct control of the soul - a very different thing to the control of the centres by the mind. To this the Science of the Breath will be added - not breathing exercises as now taught, with often such dangerous results, but a breathing rhythm imposed by the mind through which the soul can work, and which will not require anything more than the simple rhythmic physical breath but which will reorganise the subtler bodies and bring the centres into ordered activity.

The seven main centres, the seven endocrine glands and the bodies of man are:
