This seventh volume in The Notebooks of Paul Brunton is an in-depth presentation of the tenth and eleventh (of twenty-eight) major categories in the personal notebooks of Dr. Paul Brunton reserved for posthumous publication. Both sections of this volume are immediately useful. Each deals with a topic currently receiving a great deal of attention on both the personal and the professional levels.
Part I, Healing of the Self, examines mind-body relationships in health and sickness. Contrasting conventional, psychic, and spiritual approaches to healing, it clarifies basic principles of healing and recommends a combination of conventional and alternative methods. It also offers a variety of practical techniques that have proven useful both in self-healing and in assisting conventional treatment.
Part II, The Negatives, examines the nature and roots of evil in both the individual and the world. Tracing the activity of sinister forces in previous and possible future world war, it emphasized the urgency with which the current world-situation demands clear recognition of-and intelligent individual response to-the intensification of these destructive forces both within and around us.
Unless we look behind the world's problems into the real and spiritual problems which they reflect, we can not properly understand them or solve them. - Paul Brunton
