A Treatise on Cosmic Fire - Section Two - Division D - Thought Elementals and Fire Elementals
2. The Fire Devas - The Greater Builders

I have divided the groups of devas and elementals into evolutionary and involutionary Builders - those who are in themselves positive force, and those which are negative force, the conscious and the blind workers. It is absolutely essential that students bear in mind here that we are studying the mystery of electricity and therefore must remember the following facts:

a. Introductory Remarks

The Mystery of Electricity. The greater Builders are the positive aspect of substance or of electrical phenomena whilst the lesser Builders are the negative aspect.

Two types of force are represented in the activities of these two groups and it is their interaction and interplay which produces Light, or the manifested solar system.

Their sumtotal is substance in its totality, the intelligent active form, built for the purpose of providing a habitation for a central subjective life.

They are also the sumtotal of the Pitris, 91 or Fathers of mankind, viewing mankind as the race itself, the fourth kingdom in nature, the Heavenly Men in physical manifestation. This is a most important point to emphasize. These deva activities in relation to Self-Consciousness (which is the distinctive characteristic of humanity) can best be studied in the large, or through [613] the consideration of groups, of races, and of the life of the scheme, the manifestation of one of the Heavenly Men. When the student brings his study of deva work down to the terms of his own individual life he is apt to become confused through too close a juxtaposition.

The greater Builders are the solar Pitris, whilst the lesser Builders are the lunar ancestors. I would here explain the occult meaning of the word "ancestor," as used in esotericism. It means literally initiatory life impulse. It is that subjective activity which produces objectivity, and concerns those emanatory impulses which come from any positive center of force, and which sweep the negative aspect into the line of that force, and thus produce a form of some kind. The word "ancestor" is used in connection with both aspects.

The solar Logos is the initiatory impulse or Father of the Son in His physical incarnation, a solar system. He is the sumtotal of the Pitris, in the process of providing form. The union of Father (positive force) and Mother (negative force) produces that central blaze which we call the form, the body of manifestation of the Son. A Heavenly Man holds an analogous position in relation to a planetary scheme. He is the central germ of positive life or force, which, in due course of time, demonstrates as a planetary scheme, or an incarnation of the planetary Logos. A man similarly is the positive life or energy which, through action on negative force, creates bodies of manifestation through which he can shine or radiate. 92, 93, 94

91 The Lunar Pitris. "The great Chohans called the Lords of the Moon, of the airy bodies: Bring forth Men," they were told , "men of your nature. Give them their forms within. She (Mother Earth) will build coverings without (for external bodies). Males - females will they be. Lords of the Flame also... They went each on his allotted lands: Seven of them each on his lot. The Lords of the Flame remained behind. They would not go. They would not create." - Stanza III, 12, 13, S. D., II, 79, 81.

92 The Lunar Pitris created the physical man. - S. D., I, 114, 197.

They exist in three great classes.

  1. The most developed.
    • They form, in Round one, the sumtotal of the three kingdoms, and achieve a human form. - S. D., I, 203.
    • In Rounds two and three they are the sumtotal of that which will eventually be human.
    • In Round four at the beginning they form the etheric bodies of our Earth humanity.
  2. Those whose bodies are taken by the Solar Angels - S. D., I, 203.
  3. The sum total of the three kingdoms at present known.

93 The Earth gives man his body; the Gods give him his five inner principles... Spirit is one. - S. D., I, 248.

  1. The Earth gives the dense physical.
  2. The Lunar Gods give him three lower principles:
    1. Etheric body
    2. Prana
    3. Kama - manas
  3. The Solar Gods give him two principles:
    1. Lower mind
    2. Higher mind
  4. The Monad is the unified two highest principles:
    1. Buddhi
    2. Atma

- S. D., I, 248.

94 The totality of form. God is "One, notwithstanding the innumerable forms which are in Him," so is man, on earth the microcosm of the macrocosm. - S. D., II, 197; II, 303; III, 584.

  • Everything is comprised in man.
  • He unites in himself all forms.
  • The mystery of the earthly man is the mystery of the Heavenly Man.
  • The potentiality of every organ useful to animal life is locked up in man, the Microcosm of the Macrocosm. - S. D., II, 723.
