Alice Bailey described the majority of her work as having been telepathically dictated to her by a 'Master of the Wisdom', initially referred to only as 'the Tibetan', or by the initials 'D.K.', later identified as Djwal Khul. In 1915 Bailey discovered the Theosophical Society and the work of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky becoming involved in 1917 and by 1918 a member of the Esoteric Section. in her introductory remarks she states that whereas her "Treatise on Cosmic Fire" dealt primarily with the solar system, this book deals more specifically with human development and unfoldment, elucidating the causes which are responsible for the present effects, and pointing to the future and its possibilities, and to the nature of the unfolding potentialities. She further states that intuition is in reality only the appreciation by the mind of some factor in creation, some law of manifestation and some aspect of truth, known by the soul, emanating from the world of ideas, and being of the nature of those energies which produce all that is known and seen. These truths are always present, and these laws are ever active, but only as the mind is trained and developed, focussed, and open-minded can they be recognized, later understood, and finally adjusted to the needs and demands of the cycle and time. Those who have thus trained the mind in the art of clear thinking, the focussing of the attention, and consequent receptivity to truth have always been with us, but hitherto have, been few and far between. After the introductory remarks is an essay on the three aspects of man & the rest of the book is divided into the 'fifteen rules of magic' first introduced in the 'Treatise on Cosmic Fire' & covering many subjects e.g. - Hindrances to Occult Study; The Awakening of the Centres; The Battleground of the Astral Plane; Astrology & the Energies; The Use of the Hands & many more all listed on the contents page; 14 pages of contents list plus 'Rules of Magic'; 'The Great Invocation' & extract from a statement by The Tibetan. .
