Letters on Occult Meditation - Letter IX - Future Schools of Meditation

September 26th, 1920

  1. The one fundamental school.
  2. Its national subdivisions.
  3. The location, personnel, and buildings of the school.
  4. The grades and classes. [297]

We take up today another of the series of letters on occult meditation, that dealing with "Future Schools of Meditation". In this letter I shall attempt somewhat to show how the training and development indicated in the other letters will be applied and I shall deal somewhat with prophecy, pointing out what will some day be possible and present, and not what is as yet in any way approachable. Always it is necessary to have high ideals, and ever the human mind leaps forward to some appointed goal. If I here outline what may seem a visionary impossibility it is but that I seek to hold up such an ideal, and to give to the race an objective well worth their highest endeavor.

Preliminary Remarks

Let us pause a moment and lay down certain postulates anent the present that will (so to speak) clear the ground for future action.

The value of meditation is becoming everywhere admitted. Schools for concentration and methods of mental development are commonly advertised in the daily papers.

True meditation is as yet little understood. Concentration is but the foundation upon which the future work is to be based.

As yet the future structure cannot be raised, due to two causes primarily: [298]

  1. The inherent inability of man at this juncture to attain the causal level and the consciousness of the causal level.
  2. The absence of a Master in personal presence, able and equipped to teach the true scientific development which is the aim of true meditation.

The troubled condition of the world at present is sufficient barrier to any general acceptation of training, and of the scientific development of the vehicles.

These premises are laid down here as a starting point. That some individuals here and there achieve the goal, that some people do master the system of Occult Meditation and make the desired progress is undeniable, but they are only few in number and those numbers are inappreciable when set against the vast bulk of human beings in incarnation at the same time. They achieve by right of agelong effort, and because in previous lives they trod the Path or neared the portal of initiation. But even the average man of intelligence of today - the product, for instance, of western civilization - is far from being ready for occult training. Experiments are being made now, unknown oft to the subjects themselves, to see how quickly a man may be pushed through experience and a general hastening of the evolutionary process into a position where it will be safe to train him further. People in many civilized countries are under supervision, and a method of stimulation and intensification is being applied which will bring to the knowledge of the Great Ones Themselves a mass of information that may serve as a guide to Their future efforts for the race. Especially are people in America, Australia, India, Russia, Scotland and Greece being dealt with. A few in Belgium, Sweden, and Austria are likewise under observation, and should the response [299] be as hoped they will form a nucleus for further expansion.
