A Treatise on Cosmic Fire - Section Two - Div. B - Manas as a Cosmic, Systemic and Human Factor
b. Will and Ordered Purpose

Thus all that we can really predicate anent the origin of manas is that it is the unified will-activity, or the purposeful expression of the realized Identity of some great Self which colors the life and swings into intelligent cooperation all the lesser units included in its sphere of influence. Each of us, in illustration, is the thinking purposeful Entity who acts as the manasic principle, and the spring of action, to all the units included in our three bodies. Each of us sways them to our will; we act, and by acting, force cooperation as we see fit. The Logos does the same on a larger scale. In this thought lies light on the question of karma, of free-will and of responsibility. Manas is, really WILL working itself out on the physical plane, and the truth of this will be seen when it is realized that all our planes form the cosmic physical plane, whereon an Entity, inconceivably greater than our Logos, is working out a set purpose through the Logos, through us, through all Spirit-substance that is included within His sphere of radiatory activity.

Certain problems of real interest are prone to enter our minds, but they serve only to develop abstract thought [354] and to expand the consciousness, for they are as yet insoluble and will remain so. Some of them might be enumerated as follows:

  1. Who is the cosmic Entity in Whose scheme our Logos plays his little part?
  2. What is the nature of the great purpose He is working out?
  3. Which center in His body is represented by our solar system?
  4. What is the nature of the incarnation He is now undergoing?
  5. What are the ten systems - the three and the seven - of which our solar system is one? Must we look for the major three within the seven, or extraneously?
  6. What is the coloring or basic quality of this cosmic Entity?
  7. Is the coloring of the fourth cosmic ether (the buddhic plane), blue, or is it violet to correspond with our fourth physical ether? Why is buddhi exoterically regarded as yellow in color?
  8. Which are the primary three centers in the body of our solar Logos and which the minor four?
  9. What is the karma of the different schemes?
  10. What is the over-balancing karma of the Logos Himself as it affects the ten schemes within His system?

All these questions, and numbers of others, will arise in the mind of the interested student, but beyond the formulation of them he may not as yet go, though the fifth round will see the realization, by men, of the nature of the karma of the Logos of our chain. Words, as we have been told, blind and stultify.

In summing up, this quality of manas may be somewhat apprehended if the student regards it as the intelligent [355] will, the active purpose, and the fixed idea of some Entity which brings about existence, utilizes form, and works out effects from causes through discrimination in matter, separation into form, and the driving of all units within His sphere of influence to the fulfilment of that set purpose. Man is the originating source of mind as regards the matter of his vehicles, and their latent manasic impulse. So again with a Heavenly Man and His larger sphere of influence, and so with the solar Logos. Each discriminated, and thus formed His ring-pass-not; each has a purpose in view for every incarnation; each is actively following and intelligently working to effect certain ends, and thus each is the originator of manas to His scheme; each is the animating fire of intelligence to his system; each, through this very manasic principle individualizes, expands gradually this self-realization till it includes the ring-pass-not of the Entity through Whom the fifth principle comes to him; and each attains initiation, and eventually escapes from form.
