      From "Dashed Against the Rock" by W. J. Colville, 1894

      The amplitude of vibrations is directly increased or diminished by
      increasing or diminishing the size or number of creative aggregates.

      The human EGO, subject to the forces of love or hate, kindness or
      cruelty, forgiveness or revenge, is according to circumstances ruled or
      dominated by these force in proportion to their intensity.

      The intensity of a force is precisely proportionate to the number of
      units vibrating at that particular pitch. For instance, let fear
      assail one an, and according to its intensity will be the effect; but
      let a crowd of en experience fear, see the result in the augmentation
      of fear, though its source be relatively insignificant. A curtain in a
      theatre, for example, takes fire; one or two persons, cowardly at
      heart, become afraid through the dominance of the purely animal
      instinct of bodily preservation; there is actually no real danger, but
      these two or three persons are sufficient to arouse the unreasoning
      dread which lies latent in every breast, with perhaps a very few
      remarkable exceptions. The fire burns nobody; but blind fear, which is
      extremely contagious among people mutually sympathetic, by reason of
      the rapidity with which etheric waves transmit all feeling, occasions a
      terrible panic, during which many severe accidents and many instances
      of fierce cruelty occur, all because of this sympathetic transfer of
      feeling starting from one or two augmented or intensified fear-centres,
      each person being a centre emanating the feeling of fear. Were there
      no counteracting centres of influence in an audience, radiating
      contrary feelings, the result of a panic would be the total bodily
      extinction of a very large percentage of the assembled multitude.

      Thus the human race is immersed in forces whose intensity is vast in
      proportion to the number of EGOS adding each its quota to the already
      intense vibration, tending either to love or hate, kindness or cruelty,
      timidity or bravery. Those who intensify the force of cruelty in the
      place where they reside, may be strengthening a murderer's hand to
      strike the deadly blow in a distant land. This result is brought about
      through the agency of etheric waves, which transmit forces with
      undiminished intensity even to uncalculated distances. This phenomenon
      may be termed transympathetic.
      They who feel that force called love, which on higher planes is
      known as sympathy, thrill with waves of force which are already strong,
      augmenting them or increasing their intensity. They who indulge such
      sentiments and encourage such forces may stop the falling hand on evil

      In order to protect ourselves effectually from becoming the
      dispensers or propagators of deadly force, we must consciously and
      deliberately relate ourselves by resolute determination, to awaken
      within us such centres only as are concordantly sympathetic with all
      force radiating in the interest of universal goodwill, thereby aiding
      the establishment of universal brotherhood.

      All ye who feel a longing for a better life or nobler existence draw
      to yourselves streams of force which they alone feel who have attuned
      their bodies to the higher harmonies. For a moment you feel as they
      who dwell perpetually in communion with higher harmonies, living
      immersed in that higher force; they are the true hierophants, and you,
      O neophytes, struggling to attain the goal which they have reached, do
      not despair though at present you find yourselves unable to maintain
      this high altitude for long together. Though you fall many times, be
      not discouraged, for as yet your organisms and all their centres of
      resonation are not yet concordant to the focalized vibrations of the
      higher harmonies; being still related to the mass, you are drawn again
      and again into the whirlpool of the vibrations which affect the mass,
      for these you cannot yet resist. But know that you can change all this
      rapidly or slowly as your purpose is steadily intense or vacillating.

      With the cessation of your lower desires comes the cessation of the
      action upon you of the lower forces; the resonating centres which
      formerly distributed this force, no longer active, become latent and
      are absorbed back to an embryonic condition.

      Every man contains, developed or embryonic, all conditions of the
      Infinite; therefore no height is too great to reach. Impossibility is
      a meaningless word to the an who apprehends the fathomless contents of
      his own nature. Thou comest here, O man, with the instrument thou hast
      graduated in thy many past existences; how few of thy chord-settings,
      if thou are art numbered with the any, respond to the higher harmonies!
      Universal unity or fraternity has been absorbed to almost embryonic
      conditions by the prevalence of material self-regard. Charity has been
      rendered almost latent, that beautiful chord-setting found even in the
      lowest forms of creation-LOVE, the dominant chord of the cycles. Love
      has an amplitude of action in the brute which may well make the selfish
      man ashamed, but until the crust of selfishness is broken through, the
      beauty of love is obscured, and though it exists all about him, the
      poor blind egotist has no eye to discern it. The centres of love,
      brotherhood, charity, voice their music loud and clear, yet the masses
      will not listen. I do not mean the immortal EGO when I say man will
      not listen; I refer to the personality which is the resultant of all
      the ages of action in this, now rapidly closing, cycle.

      You who exist do-day, to-morrow would exist no longer in your
      present personalities did you but dare to yield to these higher
      harmonies. I say YIELD because it is a yielding process for this
      personality. In a moment your outer life would end, and you, the
      warrior, would enter peace.

      The immortal EGO is an entity of which man can become throroughly
      conscious while here on earth, but to arrive at this consciousness
      necessitates the entire abandonment of all the petty considerations
      involved in the transient and subordinate EGO, which is the only self
      of which the un-enlightened man is conscious. Let him who desires to
      reach this inner consciousness enter his inner sanctuary, wherever that
      sanctuary may be; it matters not whether it be his own chamber, the
      open field, the mountain top, the seashore, the stately cathedral, or
      the humble village chapel. Let him realize fully the transient
      character of his own personality and contrast therewith his eager
      longing to know the immortal. Let him concentrate his whole
      consciousness upon his personality, fully arousing all his personal
      conditions as a distinct
      Page 2

      individual; then with all the aspiration of which this personality is
      capable, let him beseech of the immortal EGO-which is eternal and does
      not incarnate, but overshadows all incarnations, waiting until one is
      formed capable of illumination, to whom it may reveal itself-to
      consider him worthy of illumination, and according to his preparedness
      to receive illumination will it then be granted. He who asks this,
      knows not what he asks; for were the prayer answered, life henceforth
      for such an one would be a weary round, as Hamlet says: "to-morrow and
      to-morrow and to-morrow brings in this weary round of life"; for,
      having seen the glory of this immortal EGO, all else seems so base, so
      commonplace and mean, so inglorious, that oftentimes the personality
      has utterly collapsed when thrown back from the radiant vision of this
      glorious immortal entity possessed by all alike, though scarcely
      dreamed of by any save the very few who, discontented with the
      ignorance and emptiness of terrene existence, aspire to know the great
      reality of the supernal. As the incarnations of every entity, passing
      through certain orders of experience through numerous lives, inevitably
      culminate in this moment of conscious realization of the immortal
      entity; the Buddha says: "All shall reach the sunlit snows."

      You who through your daily life move on unthinking, not caring,
      inactive, inactive, you shall hear when your supplications reach this
      high entity, "Lo! thou didst not even try, knowing that even thy
      failures were acceptable to me."

      We wish to publicly thank Dan A. Davidson for allowing us access to a
      photocopy of Colville's "Dashed Against the Rock".
