A Treatise on Cosmic Fire - Section Two - Division D - Thought Elementals and Fire Elementals
It might be of interest here to note that this center is literally a fourfold radiation, and the "Cross of the Holy Spirit," the equal armed Cross, is its symbol. This four-petalled lotus is the result of evolution. In the first kingdom of nature, the mineral, through which a specific Entity is manifesting, this center is a unity on etheric levels, for only one petal is to be seen. In the vegetable kingdom, viewing it as the expression of a great Existence, two petals are becoming active. In the third kingdom, the animal, the center at the base of the spine will be found to have three petals, whereas in man, the lotus is vibrating in a fourfold manner. At each initiation of the great Being Who is manifesting through our planet, one of these petals becomes unfolded on etheric levels, so that at individualization, the four became active, and His self-conscious activity was brought right down on to the physical plane. The analogy can be seen typified at His great Initiation which took place in the fourth round and the third root-race; the correspondence between the third kingdom and the fourth, and their production of the esoteric seven is one of the lines of study for the occultist.

As each of the petals of the etheric centers becomes vibrant, or an at-one-ment is brought about in deva substance, a quickening takes place on allied levels in the cosmic etheric body of the planetary Logos, and of the solar Logos. Certain correspondences in the petals of the egoic lotus of the different units of the human family, and (on cosmic levels) in the solar and planetary egoic bodies become apparent. It should also be borne in mind that these basic centers, wherein the [648] kundalini fire lies hidden, are found in the following Existences, as They function in physical bodies:

  1. A solar Logos.
  2. A planetary Logos.
  3. Those Entities Who are the sumtotal of consciousness as it expresses itself through the different kingdoms of nature - manifesting through them as a man manifests through his body.
  4. The Lord of a chain.
  5. The Lord of a globe.
  6. Certain Beings Who form the life of specific groups. They are esoteric, and Their function is one of the secrets of initiation.
  7. Man.
  8. Animals.

It should be here also remarked that in the logoic manifestation one of the planetary schemes forms the center in the logoic body which harbors kundalini. This scheme, whose name must not as yet be revealed, is largely given over to deva control - the two groups of devas meeting there, and performing their function of animating the dense physical body of the Logos in the same way as the kundalini in man at this stage animates his dense physical vehicle. Later, as the third major scheme assimilates the life-activity of the lower four, this kundalini fire will be withdrawn, and will be transmuted into the activity of the logoic Throat center.

In planetary manifestation, one of the chains performs a similar work in the evolutionary process of the planetary Logos. Again the same can be predicated of one of the globes in a chain. In this fourth round, therefore, it can be seen why the fire at the base of the spine (viewing it in its esoteric significance, and in connection with the Logos, and the Logoi, and not only in connection with man) plays so dominant a part in the stimulation of [649] the logoic Quaternary, or of His Lower Self. Herein is found the mystery of present evil, the source of present distress, and the basis of planetary experience. The kundalini fire in the logoic body is at the height of its activity in stimulating His physical body - our lower three systemic planes - and the four petals of that particular center are coming into full activity in this fourth round. It must be remembered that He is the sumtotal of all the centers in manifestation, and the aggregate of all the fires of kundalini in every department of nature. The trouble in our planet, and likewise the hope for our planet, lies in this very fact. The etheric center of our planetary Logos being in matter of the fourth cosmic ether (the buddhic plane) stimulates at present His lower quaternary, our three worlds of human endeavor. The direction of the force lies here, and not until the next round (when three-fifths of the human kingdom will be developing the buddhic vehicle), will the point of equilibrium for Him be reached, and the direction of the serpent fire be directed higher.

This holds the clue to much. A further clue to the sad condition to be seen in the world (especially along sex lines) lies in the fact that those units of the human family who contribute to the constitution of this particular center out of the seven, are frequently at this stage over-vitalized, the physical vehicle vitality indicating to them the line of least resistance. To word it otherwise: The deva forces who form the center, and are likewise the activity of the center, are as yet over-dominant, and the power they acquired in the earlier solar system has not yet been transmuted into spiritual power.

We have above considered a few of the devas of the ethers but have of necessity left many untouched. The vastness of our subject will be apparent when it is remembered that in dealing with the devas we are dealing [650] with that which is the basic substance of manifestation, or Spirit-matter; with the negative or the mother aspect, in the divine duality, and with the sum total of all that is. We are concerned with the tangible form, using the word "tangible" as that which can be apprehended by consciousness in one or other of its many states. The utter impossibility of cataloguing the forms and aspects of deva substance, or of tabulating the myriad groups and classes will be borne in on our comprehension. On all the planes these three groups will be found, and all are recipients of force. An analogy likewise exists between these three groups of devas on the systemic physical plane, and their correspondences on the cosmic physical plane. Briefly it might be pointed out that we have:

  • Group A - The plane Adi - Divine evolution.
    Systemic atomic.
  • Group B - The three worlds of the Triad - Spiritual evolution.
    Logoic etheric.
  • Group C - The three worlds - Human evolution.
    Logoic dense physical.

In this lies much of interest for the student as it makes clear the correspondence between the evolution of substance and the evolution of spirit.
