A Treatise on Cosmic Fire - Section One - Division E - Motion on the Physical and Astral Planes
The centers in the human being deal fundamentally with the FIRE aspect in man, or with his divine spirit. They are definitely connected with the Monad, with the will aspect, with immortality, with existence, with the will to live, and with the inherent powers of Spirit. They are not connected with objectivity and manifestation, but with force, or the powers of the divine life. The correspondence in the Macrocosm can be found in the force which manipulates the cosmic nebulae and which by its whirling rotary motion eventually builds them into planets or spheroidal bodies. These planets are each of them an expression of the "will to live" of some cosmic entity, and the force that swirled, that rotated, that built, that solidified, and that continues to hold in form coherent, is the force of some cosmic Being.

This force originates on cosmic mental levels, from certain great foci there, descends to the cosmic astral, forming corresponding cosmic focal points, and on the fourth cosmic etheric level (the buddhic plane of our solar system) finds its outlet in certain great centers. These [166] centers are again reflected or reproduced in the three worlds of human endeavor. The Heavenly Men, therefore, have centers on three solar planes, a fact to be remembered.

  1. On the monadic plane, the plane of the seven Rays.
  2. On the buddhic plane, where the Masters and their disciples form the forty-nine centers in the bodies of the seven Heavenly Men.
  3. On the fourth etheric physical plane, where the sacred planets, the dense bodies in etheric matter of the Heavenly Men, are to be found.

Here again we can trace the microcosmic correspondence: In the human being the centers are found on the mental plane from which originates the impulse for physical plane existence, or the will to incarnate; from thence they can be traced to the astral level, and eventually to the etheric levels, to the fourth ether, where they practically go through the same evolution that the planetary centers went through, and are instrumental in bringing about objectivity, - being the force centers.

The centers are formed entirely of streams of force, pouring down from the Ego, who transmits it from the Monad. In this we have the secret of the gradual vibratory quickening of the centers as the Ego first comes into control, or activity, and later (after initiation) the Monad, thus bringing about changes and increased vitality within these spheres of fire or of pure life force.

The centers, therefore, when functioning properly, form the "body of fire" which eventually is all that is left, first to man in the three worlds, and later to the Monad. This body of fire is "the body incorruptible" (Bible, I Cor., XV, 53.) or indestructible, spoken of by St. Paul, and is the product of evolution, of the perfect blending of the three fires, which ultimately destroy the form. When the form is [167] destroyed there is left this intangible spiritual body of fire, one pure flame, distinguished by seven brilliant centers of intenser burning. This electric fire is the result of the bringing together of the two poles and demonstrates at the moment of complete at-one-ment, the occult truth of the words "Our God is a consuming Fire." (Bible, Deut. IV, 24; Hebrews XII, 29.)

Three of these centers are called major centers, as they embody the three aspects of the threefold Monad - Will, Love and Intelligence:

  1. The Head center - The Monad - Will or Power.
  2. The Heart center - The Ego - Love and Wisdom.
  3. The Throat center - The Personality - Activity or Intelligence.

The other two centers have to do primarily with the etheric body and with the astral plane. The throat center synthesizes the entire personality life, and is definitely connected with the mental plane, - the three planes, and the two higher planes, and the three centers with the two other centers, the heart and head. Yet, we must not forget that the center at the base of the spine is also a synthesizer, as would normally be expected, if it is recognized that the lowest plane of all manifestation is the point of deepest reflection. This lowest center, by synthesizing the fire of kundalini and the pranic fires, eventually blends and merges with the fire of mind, and later with the fire of Spirit, producing thus consummation.

We must disabuse our minds of the idea that these centers are physical things. They are whirlpools of force that swirl etheric, astral and mental matter into activity of some kind. Because the action is rotary, the result produced in matter is a circular effect that can be seen by the clairvoyant as fiery wheels situated:

  1. In the region of the spine, the lowest part.
  2. Between the ribs, just below the diaphragm. [168]
  3. In the region of the left breast.
  4. In the center of the throat.
  5. Just above the top of the head.
