A Treatise on Cosmic Fire - Section Two - Introductory Questions
Third: The work of a solar Logos is again of a corresponding nature: [292]
  1. He has to attain to the full consciousness of His entire ring-pass-not, or of the seven planes of the solar system. This covers a period wherein five of the Heavenly Men, or five of His centers, and therefore, five schemes, reach a stage of accurate response to contact and stimulation.
  2. He has to attain to the consciousness of the cosmic Logos within Whose body He is a center. He must find by experience His place within the cosmic group of which He is a part, in much the same way as a planetary Logos pursues a similar course. This is achieved when all the Heavenly Men or each of the seven centers are awakened and functioning consciously and freely, with their systemic interrelation adjusted and controlled by the Law of Action and Reaction. It brings within His control not only the seven subplanes of the cosmic physical plane (our seven major planes) but necessarily also the cosmic astral plane.
  3. To attain to the consciousness of the center in the body of the ONE ABOUT WHOM NOUGHT MAY BE SAID. This center is formed by the sphere of influence of a cosmic Logos. In the body of a cosmic Logos, a solar Logos is a center.

We must bear in mind that this enumeration is given from the standpoint of the present, and from the angle of vision (relatively limited) of the Heavenly Man of our particular scheme, and that it is therefore circumscribed by His peculiar conditions, which govern the intelligence of the cells in His body; it is given from the point of view of differentiation and not of synthesis. A synthetic absorption proceeds eventually in connection with all these Entities, and each undergoes a process, paralleling on His Own level that undergone by the Microcosm; in the case of the Microcosm the causal body or the body of the Ego acts as the synthesizer of the energy of the Quaternary or lower Self, and the spiritual [294] or monadic sheath as the synthesizer of the seven principles, making thus the three, the seven, and the ten.

In closing I would point out that the mind must carefully be kept from reducing all these ideas into a rankly materialistic concept. It must be rigidly borne in mind that we are dealing with the subjective life, and not with the objective form, and that we are considering, for instance, the synthesis of the principles or the qualitating energies and not the synthesis of form.

Evolution in the Universe (Tabulation II)
Entity Vehicle Center Space Time
The Unknown 7 constellations cosmic Logos 5 cosmic planes.
A cosmic Logos 7 solar systems solar Logos 4 cosmic planes.
A solar Logos 7 planetary schemes Heavenly Man 3 cosmic planes. Period of 3 solar systems.
A Heavenly Man 7 planetary chains Chohans and groups 2 cosmic planes. Period of 1 solar system.
A Man 7 etheric centers a Principle 1 cosmic plane. Period of 1 planetary scheme.
  • Through each etheric center man is bringing to perfect vibration some one principle or quality through which the subjective life may express itself.
  • Through each chain in a scheme a Heavenly Man is endeavoring to do the same.
  • Through each scheme in a system, a solar Logos working at the same thing; the goal is synthetic quality and not primarily the perfection of the form. The response of the energized form to the qualitative life is naturally - under the law - equal to the demand, but this is of secondary importance and is not the object in view.

We have seen that the work to be accomplished in all the above cases is necessarily threefold:

  • First. The development of individual consciousness.
  • Second. The development of group consciousness.
  • Third. The development of God consciousness, of that consciousness in each case which represents the highest spiritual Source, and which is recognized as the same in essence as the God within the individual, whether man or solar Logos.

This concept must be meditated upon by all thinkers and its synthesis emphasized. The relation of the cell to the group, of the group to the aggregate of groups, and of them all to the indwelling Entity Who holds them in synthetic correlation by means of the Law of Attraction and Repulsion is of vital moment. Two main ideas must always be borne in mind: [295]

  • That the terms "cell, group, or congery of groups" relate entirely to the form of vehicle, and thus to the matter aspect.
  • That the idea of an Entity Who synthesizes the groups and is the animating life of the cell has to do with the Spirit aspect.

These two concepts lead necessarily to a third, that of the development of consciousness, which is the gradual expansion of the realization of the Indweller in the form, the apprehension by the Self of the relation of the form to Itself, and of its slow utilization and control. This persists until that Realization includes the cell, the group, and the totality of groups. These ideas can be applied to the three grades of consciousness referred to. As follows:

  • Man, the lowest type of coherent consciousness (using the word "consciousness" in its true connotation as the "One who knows") is but a cell, a minute atom within a group.
  • A Heavenly Man represents a coherent conscious group.
  • A solar Logos on His Own plane holds an analogous place to that of a Heavenly Man in a solar system, and from a still higher standpoint to that of a man within the solar system. When the place of the solar planes within the cosmic scheme is duly apprehended it will be recognized that on cosmic levels of a high order the solar Logos is an Intelligence as relatively low in the order of cosmic consciousness as man is in relation to solar consciousness. He is but a cell in the body of the ONE ABOUT WHOM NAUGHT MAY BE SAID. His work parallels on cosmic levels the work of man on the solar planes. He has to undergo on the three lower cosmic planes a process of developing an apprehension of His environment of the same nature as man in the three worlds. This fact should be remembered by all students [296] of this central division of our subject; above all the analogy between the cosmic physical planes and the solar physical planes must be pondered upon. It holds hid the fourfold mystery:
    1. The mystery of the Akasha.
    2. The secret of the fifth round.
    3. The esoteric significance of Saturn, the third, planet.
    4. The occult nature of cosmic kundalini, or the electrical force of the system.

    One hint on this fourth point may be given for wise consideration. When the electrical interplay between the planets is better ascertained (and by this I mean their negative or positive interplay), then it will be revealed which are related or connected, and which are nearing the point of balance. I would here point out very briefly certain facts, not pausing to elaborate or to elucidate, but simply making various statements which - as the knowledge of man progresses - will assume their rightful place in the ordered scheme. They will then be seen as enlightening and revealing the necessary sequence of development.
