This carries us straight into the middle of the much-vexed question of the fourth dimension – a question of the deepest interest, though one that we cannot pretend to discuss in the space at our disposal.
Between those who are entirely unimpressible and those who are in full possession of clairvoyant power there are many intermediate stages. We have nothing to ask Him. Many extraordinary stories were told of him, and amongst the rest the following:. Human figures usually appear very small, like those on a distance stage, but in spite of their diminutive size they are as clear as though they were close by.

He had then lost sight of the stranger amongst the throng, and knew nothing more about him. What, then, it may be asked, are the desirable methods, since so many are undesirable?

On the buddhic plane we meet for the first time with a quite new faculty having nothing in leadbeaer with those of which we have spoken, for there a man cognizes any object by an entirely different method, in which external vibrations play no part.

Williams rated it it was ok Nov 17, THE readiest and safest method of developing the higher consciousness is by means of meditation, and it is already the habit of many of our members to begin each morning by spending a few minutes in a meditation which is intended to be devoted to aspiration towards the Masters.
