A Treatise on Cosmic Fire - Section Two - Division D - Thought Elementals and Fire Elementals
b. Agni and the Mental Plane

I seek to deal with a very important point here, emphasizing the close connection between Agni, the sumtotal of the life force of the logoic threefold personality, as He is seen at work on the mental plane (which closely concerns man), and that manifesting driving force or intelligent will which emanates from the cosmic mental plane. There is a very interesting series of correspondences to be worked out here and we might briefly indicate the lines to be followed in this connection by the ensuing tabulation:

  • The 5th cosmic plane - The cosmic mental.
  • The 5th systemic plane - The mental plane.
  • The 5th subplane of the physical - The gaseous.
  • The 5th principle - Manas.
  • The 5th Law - Fixation, the Law of Concretion.
  • The 5th Ray - Concrete knowledge.
  • The 5th round - The round of manasic attainment. [605]
  • The 5th root-race - The Aryan. Mental development.
  • The 5th subrace - The Teutonic and Anglo-Saxon. Concrete mind.
  • The 5th group of Devas - Fire Devas of the mental plane.
  • The 5th Manvantara - Three-fifths of the manasaputras achieve.
  • The 5th scheme - The Lord of concrete science.
  • The 5th Mahamanvantara (or solar system) - The solar Logos achieves His fifth major Initiation.
  • The 5th chain - Principal evolution - fire devas.
  • The 5th Hierarchy - The greater Builders.
  • Vibrations of fifth order - Manasic.

It will, therefore, be apparent that when the system is viewed in reverse order and the physical plane is counted as the first (as it often is when considering it as the field of strictly human evolution), that the third plane - the mental plane - comes under the same group of correspondences and Agni, as the energizing factor of the dense physical body of the Logos, or as the fire of His most concrete manifestation, vitalizing, warming and holding all together, has to be considered.

Three hierarchies are, in this mahamanvantara, of profound significance, the fourth or human Creative Hierarchy, and the two deva hierarchies, the fifth and sixth.

The fourth Hierarchy in the larger scheme is literally the ninth, for five hierarchies have earlier passed on and are considered as pure abstractions. In this system concretion concerns us, and the blending of form and of energy into one coherent whole. In the ninth, tenth and eleventh Hierarchies lie the clue to the nature of Agni, the Lord of fire, the sumtotal of systemic vitality. He who understands the significance of these figures, and their relation to each other as the triple division of a Unity in time and space will have discovered [606] one of the keys which will unlock a door hitherto fast closed. They are the numbers of achievement, of potentiality brought into full activity and of innate capacity demonstrating in perfect fruition. All potentiality lies in the vitalizing, energizing power of Agni, and in His ability to stimulate. He is life itself, and the driving force of evolution, of psychic development and of consciousness. This fact is hidden in these figures, and not the evolution of substance, which is but a result, emanating from psychic causes. These three numbers are the basis of the cyclic calculations which concern the egoic cycles, and the cycles of Vishnu, as distinguished from the cycles dealing with the third aspect. Occult students have not sufficiently grasped the fact that objectivity is an inevitable result of an inner conscious subjective life. When this is better apprehended, bodies on the physical plane, for instance, will be purified, developed and beautified through a scientific attention paid to the development of the psyche, to the unfoldment of the Ego, and to the stimulation of the egoic vibration. The cause will be dealt with and not the effect, and hence the growing appreciation by the human family of the study of psychology, even though as yet they are but studying the kama-manasic body, and have not reached back to the egoic consciousness. The lunar Lords have had their day; now Agni, as the solar Lord of life and energy, will assume due importance in human life.
