If we were asked to say what is the major task of all healing groups, such as the Hierarchy seeks to see functioning in the future, we would say it is to prepare human beings for what we should regard as the restorative aspect of death, and thus give to that hitherto dreaded enemy of mankind a new and happier significance.

Basic requirements to the art of healing and the art of dying

It has generally been surmised that the main prerequisite to the art of healing is faith.  But this is not so. Faith has little to do with it. Healing is dependent upon certain vital and basic factors into which faith enters not at all.  The effort of the patient to achieve faith is frequently a great detriment to his freedom from the difficulties, which lie between him and complete healing. We refer in reality to the acceptance of law, to a recognition above all of karma, and to a knowledge of divine destiny. The prerequisites, which we would like to emphasise might be enumerated as follows:

1. A recognition of the great Law of Cause and Effect, if possible.

2. Correct diagnosis of the disease by a competent physician, and later by a spiritual clairvoyant, when that capacity is developed by the initiate healer.

3. A belief in the law of immediate Karma. By that we mean an ability on the part of the patient or of the healer to know whether it is the destiny of the patient to be healed or else be helped to make the great transition.

4. A willingness to recognise that healing might be detrimental and basically undesirable from the standpoint of the soul. People are sometimes healed by the potency of the healer when it is not their destiny to resume active physical plane living.

5. The active cooperation of healer and patient - a cooperation based upon mutual understanding.

6. A determined acquiescence on the part of the patient to accept whatever may be the demonstrated will of the soul. It might be called an expression of divine indifference.

7. An effort upon the part of both healer and patient to express complete harmlessness. The value of this will repay careful thought. This has basically a reference to the relation of both parties to their associates.

8. An effort on the part of the patient (unless too ill) to adjust and put right those aspects of the nature and those characteristics which might militate against the right spiritual perception. This is one of the meanings hidden in the phrase, the "work of restitution," though not the most important meaning.

9. The deliberate eliminating of qualities, lines of thought and of desires which could hinder the inflow of spiritual force - a force which might integrate the soul more closely with the body in the three worlds and inaugurate a renewed life-expression, or which might integrate the soul with its emanating source and initiate renewed life on soul levels. This, therefore, affects the relation of the patient to his soul.

10. The capacity of both healer and patient to integrate into the soul group with which they are subjectively affiliated, to integrate in other cases both personality and soul, and, if they are at a needed point of development, both to integrate more closely into the Master's ashramic group.

These ten requirements may appear simple but are not so by any means. Superficially, they may appear to deal with character and quality and capacity; fundamentally, they concern the relation of soul and body, and deal with integration or abstraction. The objective underlying them in any case is to set up an unbroken rapport between the healer or the healing group and the patient who is receiving the scientific attention of the healing agent - group or individual.

A new attitude to the whole problem of disease and healing

Two things must be clear to the patient.

1. Cure is not guaranteed. Patients must realise that continuance of life in the physical body is not the highest possible goal. It may be so if the service to be rendered is of real import, if obligations remain still to be carried out, and if other lessons must still be learned. Bodily existence is not, however, the summum bonum of existence. Freedom from the limitations of the physical body is of real beneficence. Patients must learn to recognise and accept the Law of Karma.

2. Fear is needless. One of the first objectives of the healing agent should be to aid the patient to achieve a happy, sane, expectant outlook upon his future - no matter what that future may bring.

It will be obvious too that there is the opportunity to bring a new attitude to the whole problem of disease and healing and to train humanity in a better and happier sense of proportion where disease and health are concerned.

The will to live from the soul perspective

It will also be obvious that the word - 

"restitution" concerns the high art of restoring to the patient that which he needs in order correctly to face life;

Life in a physical body and on the physical plane or the continuity of life on the other levels, unseen by the average man and regarded as problematical and intangible. Restitution may also involve the righting of wrongs by the patient, prior to receiving what he will regard as successful treatment, but it primarily concerns the effect of the healing group when it first establishes contact with the one to be healed. This must not be forgotten. Sometimes, when the patient's karma indicates it, the will-to-live must be restored to him; in other cases, the rejection of fear (fear of life or fear of death) must be induced, bringing with it the restoration of courage; the restoration of an affirmative attitude in all circumstances may be the quality needed, bringing with it the restitution of the willingness to take, with understanding and with joy, whatever the future may bring; it may also involve the restitution of harmonious relations with the patient's surroundings, with family and friends, and the consequent result of renewed correct adjustments, an uprising of a spirit of love and the negation of what may have been deep-seated wrong thinking.

Educational healing

It will be apparent, therefore, that the process of following a healing ritual is only one phase of the work to be done, and that the relation of healer and patient is basically an educational one; it must be an education tempered by the physical condition of the sick person. You will find, as you work along these lines, that it will be necessary to have short expositions of the work to be done, of the restitutions, which the patient must be prepared to make in order to facilitate the inflow of the healing force. He must be induced to "clean the slate" if the work of healing is to be successful under the Law of Karma.

This phase of the preparatory work is not easy. With patients who may be grievously ill, it may not be possible. It will be found by all healing agencies that when working with those who are spiritually-minded and those whose lives have for a long time been based upon right effort and a correct "rendering unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's and unto God the things which are God's," that the work of healing will be greatly accelerated or, on the other hand, that the task of smoothing the way through the gates of death will be greatly simplified. After all, death is in itself a work of restitution. It involves the work of rendering back of substance to the three worlds of substance, and doing it willingly and gladly; it involves also the restoration of the human soul to the soul from whence it emanated, and doing this in the joy of re-absorption. We must all learn to look upon death as an act of restitution; when we can do this it will take on new light and true meaning and become an integral part - recognised and desired - of a constant living process.

If we were asked to say what is the major task of all healing groups, such as the Hierarchy seeks to see functioning in the future, we would say it is to prepare human beings for what we should regard as the restorative aspect of death, and thus give to that hitherto dreaded enemy of mankind a new and happier significance. You will find that if you work along these indicated lines of thought, the entire theme of death will constantly recur, and that the result of this will be new attitudes to dying and the inculcation of a happy expectancy where that inevitable and most familiar event occurs. Healing groups must prepare to deal with this basic condition of all living, and a major part of their work will be the elucidating of the principle of death.

The soul, we are told, must return to the one who gave it.

To date that has been an enforced and dreaded restitution, one which engenders fear and which leads men and women everywhere to clamour for the healing of the physical body, overemphasising its importance and making them regard the prolongation of earthly existence as the most important factor in their lives. During the next cycle, these wrong attitudes must come to an end; death will become a normal and understood process - as normal as the process of birth, though evoking less pain and fear.

Any healing group seeking to work along the new lines must (as a preliminary effort) seek to understand something about the factor of death to which is given the appellation of "the great restorative process" or "the great restitution." It concerns:

The art of wisely, correctly and with due timing, giving back the body to the source of its constituent elements and of restoring the soul to the source of its essential being.

Wording this with care and ponder most carefully and sanely upon the so-called 'enigma of death'. It is an enigma to man, but not an enigma to disciples and knowers of the wisdom.

Undertakings of disciples of the Ashrams of K.H. and D.K.

Healing groups and individual healers will find it necessary at times to confront their patients with the fact of death; one of the undertakings of disciples in the Ashram of D.K. and in the Ashram of the Chohan K.H. is to interject the theme of death into their conversation with other seekers for truth, into their thinking and into their discussions with each other, and particularly with those they seek to heal. It will not be easy and it must not be done in a precipitate manner, but it is a subject, which cannot and must not be avoided or evaded.

Healing groups working out from an Ashram lay not the emphasis upon bodily healing, but upon:

(a) timing,

(b) the cycles of work or of physical plane living, and

(c) the cycles of restitution or physical plane death.

This with which we are now engaged, is called “The Basic Requirements”, has reference in reality to the processes of dying, to the conditions of the material world or the three worlds of incarnated service. The restitution of the body to the general reservoir of substance, or to service in the outer world of daily physical living, the restoration of the soul to its source, the soul upon its own plane or - in reverse - to full responsibility within the body, are dealt with in this first point. The elimination of the life principle and the consciousness aspect is dealt with in the second point, and the theme is not that of character building, as some might surmise. We touched upon character and personal qualities because all true understanding of the basic principles of death and life is facilitated by right action, based on right thinking, which eventuates in right character building. We seek not, however, to enlarge upon these elementary prerequisites. The processes of integration as we seek to consider them here concern the integration of the soul into the threefold body, if karma so decides, or into the kingdom of souls, if karma decrees that what we call death lies ahead of the man.
