A Treatise on Cosmic Fire - Section One - Division C - The Etheric Body and Prana
b. Microcosmic Organic Disorders. These are basically two in number:
  • Troubles due to congestion.
  • Destruction of tissue due to over-absorption of prana, or its too rapid blending with latent physical fire.

We have a curious illustration of both of these forms of trouble in sun stroke and in heat stroke. Though supposedly understood by physicians, they are nevertheless altogether etheric disorders. When the nature of the etheric body is better understood, and its wise care followed, both these types of disease will be prevented. They are due to solar pranic emanation; in one case the effect of the emanation is to bring about death or serious illness through the congestion of an etheric channel, while in the other the same result is brought about by destruction of etheric matter.

The above illustration has been used with definite intent, [109] but it should be pointed out that etheric congestion may lead to many forms of disease and of mental incompetence. Etheric congestion leads to the thickening of the web to an abnormal extent, and this thickening may prevent, for instance, contact with the higher Self or principles and its resultants, idiocy and mental unbalance. It may lead to abnormal fleshy development, to the thickening of some internal organ, and consequent undue pressure; one portion of the etheric body being congested may lead to the entire physical condition being upset, resulting in diverse complaints.

Destruction of tissue may lead to insanity of many kinds, especially those kinds deemed incurable. The burning of the web may let in extraneous astral currents against which man is helpless; the brain tissue may be literally destroyed by this pressure, and serious trouble be caused through the etheric ring-pass-not having been destroyed in some one place.

In connection with the planet a similar state of affairs may be found. Later information may be forthcoming, which is at present withheld; this will show that whole races have been influenced, and certain kingdoms of nature troubled by planetary etheric congestion, or the destruction of planetary etheric tissue.

We have dealt with the functional and organic ills of the etheric, giving certain indications for the extension of the concept to other realms than the purely human. In the human kingdom lies the key, but the turning of that key opens up a door to a wider interpretation as it admits one into the mysteries of nature. Though that key has to be turned seven times, yet even one turn reveals untold avenues of eventual comprehension. 47, 48 [110]

We have considered the reception and distribution of pranic emanations in man, the planet, and the system and have seen what produces temporary disorders, and the devitalization or the over-vitalization of the organic form. Now we can look at the subject from a third angle and therefore study:

47 The Keys to the Secret Doctrine, by H. P. Blavatsky. See S. D., I, 343; II, note;
II, 551.

  2. Only three keys available in the nineteenth century - S. D., II, 543, Compare II, 617, 842.
  3. There are seven keys to the Entrance door to the Mysteries. - S. D., III, 178. Compare I, 346; II, 330; II, 668; II, 731.
  4. The keys, as hinted by H. P. B., are:
    1. Psychological. - S. D., II, 25, note; I, 389.
    2. Astronomical. - S. D., II, 25, note; I, 389; III, 198.
    3. Physical or physiological. - S. D., II, 25, note; III, 198.
    4. Metaphysical. - S. D., II, 25, note; II, 394.
    5. Anthropological. - S. D., I, 389; III, 198.
    6. Astrological. - S. D. II, 343.
    7. Geometrical. - S. D., II, 494; III, 176.
    8. Mystical - S. D., I, 401.
    9. Symbolical. - S. D., II, 561.
    10. Numerical. - S. D., II, 198.
  5. Each key must be turned seven times. - S. D., I, 22.
  6. The Jews availed themselves of two keys out of the seven.
  7. The Metaphysical key is available. - S. D., I, 338. Compare III, 198.

48 "The seven keys open the mysteries, past and future, of the seven great root-races and of the seven kalpas." Every occult book, symbol and allegory can be subjected to seven interpretations. There are three locks to be opened. Seven keys. Every book can be read esoterically, subjectively and spiritually. All the keys are not yet available. (See Secret Doctrine, I, 330, 343.) There is the physiological key, the psychological, the astrological and the metaphysical. The fifth key is the geometrical.
