The purpose of this inspiring book is to facilitate step-by-step unfoldment from individuality to group awareness, from unconscious activity to conscious cooperation with your Higher Self and its purpose for you, the personality.
There is for every mortal, one supreme being that is his very own, his daemon, his inner reality, his higher nature, his own Soul. Any susceptibility to limit the concept of the higher Self should be offset by a study of the "Three Great Truths" found in the introduction to this book. Study of this occult classic in "the language of the day" will provide intuitive insight to methods for unfolding the Egoic Lotus, petal by petal, until it is opened to the full beauty of its perfection.
Understanding of the Egoic Lotus, through which the Soul manifests, will bring about an eventual apprehension of the true meaning of force, and of energy in its dual aspect— internal vibration and external radiation. Comprehension of the effect of one consciousness upon another consciousness on the physical plane through the centering of the attention upon the psychical centres in subtle bodies (not the physical centres on etheric levels) will be utilised scientifically in the future to solve many world problems. Finally the laws of fire will be explained; the nature of heat, of radiation and of flame will be occultly investigated here. The writer has spent some 30 years in this field already and is a pioneer in the educational goal to teach the young to contact their own Soul or higher energy; how best they can be led to appropriate the knowledge and ability of their higher Self for use on the physical plane; how best they can ascertain their group formation, and thus work along with their group and in unison with humanity.
