A Treatise on Cosmic Fire - Section Two - Division E - Motion on the Plane of Mind
The Monad, acted upon by the Heavenly Man, intelligently forms his ring-pass-not. There his work ceases from the purely monadic standpoint; the inherent life of the atomic matter thus constituted produces the later phenomena. The rotary life of the atoms, and their interplay, modified by the Life of the planetary group, or Heavenly Man, pursued through long aeons, causes the phenomena of the various involutionary stages up to the point where certain of the atoms have evolved to the consciousness of animal-man. All through this inconceivable period (that is, in connection with our earth sphere) the milliards of atomic lives have pursued their courses, energized by the Life of the Monad, as it pulsates through the medium of the monadic heart on the spiritual plane; and equally they have responded to the larger rhythm of the Heavenly Man. This it is which has produced graded concretion, and brought animal-man to the stage where the upward pull of the Monad itself began to be felt. At the same time, the Monad on its [1049] own plane began to respond to the self-engendered energy of the lower form, the two rhythms contacted, individualization occurred and the pilgrim manifested in his true nature.

Then - as far as concerns the Monad - progressive life forward begins. It is truly cyclic, repetitive and spiraling. At first the action, or the interplay between the rotary lower atomic form, and the influence of the Monad, is lethargic, slow and heavy, and the form retards the action of the Monad, and its heavy vibration tends to offset the higher. Gradually, as the sweeping spirals play their part, the higher vibration makes itself felt, and the activity, or motion, is more balanced, but lighter. Thus the cycles run until the higher rhythm or vibration is so dominant that the influence of the form is negated, and leads to its eventual discarding. Simultaneously with this, the highest rhythm of all makes itself felt, leading to increased activity upon the highest planes, and producing in time a negation of the sheath life of the Ego. As the old Commentary again says:

"The drops of moisture grow heavier. They break as rain upon the lowest plane. They sink into the clay and cause it to blossom. Thus do the waters cover the earth and all the cycles.

Two are the objectives of the fathering drops, and each attained in vastly separated cycles; one is to sink and lose itself in the dark soil of earth; the other to rise and merge itself in the clear air of heaven.

Between the two vast periods the heat doth play its part.
But when the heat grows fierce, and the fires within the earth and beneath the waters burn hot and flow, the nature of the many drops is seen to undergo a change. They dissipate in steam. Thus doth the heat perform its part.

Later again the fire electric flashes forth, and turns the steam to that which will permit its passage through the air."

We will now sum up briefly the various vibratory impulses which have a definite effect upon the Monad, and which must be borne in mind as we consider the evolution [1050] of the Divine Pilgrim. It is not the purpose of this Treatise to enlarge upon each distinctive impulse. It but seeks to indicate, leaving to later individual students the expansion of the imparted ideas.

  1. Three impulses inherent in the three periodical vehicles, as H. P. B. terms the three main centers of energy through which the Monad manifests:
    1. The energy of the monadic ring-pass-not, viewing it as a unit.
    2. The energy of the causal body, within the monadic periphery.
    3. The energy of the physical body, the synthesis upon the physical plane of the force pouring through into manifestation through the three permanent atoms.
  2. The activity set up in the seven etheric centers of force, the result of the activity of the seven principles:
    1. The head center - an esoteric seven with an exoteric three.
    2. The throat center.
    3. The heart center - an esoteric three and exoteric seven.
    4. The solar plexus - an esoteric three and exoteric four.
    5. The organs of generation - an esoteric two.
    6. The base of the spine - an esoteric unity.
  3. The inherent activity of every atom in every sheath, which produces the rhythm of the sheath.
  4. The unified activity of every sheath or form which the divine Pilgrim uses.
  5. The united active motion produced by the unification of the three vehicles, the seven sheaths, the force centers, and the atomic substance.
  6. The effect produced by the action of the groups karmically allied with the Pilgrim. They are: [1051]
    1. His Ray vibration, his monadic group.
    2. His subray vibration, or the vibration of the egoic group.
    3. His personality affiliations, such as his family, racial, and national energy. All of these play upon the sensitive atoms in the various bodies and produce specific effects.
  7. The activity or motion initiated and stimulated by the life of any of the three lower kingdoms in nature, - all of which produce definite results.
  8. The vibration of the particular planet upon which the monad may be seeking expression and experience.
  9. The effect produced in the substance of the sheaths by the influences, or vibrations, of the various planets. This, esoterically understood, is the influence of some one or other of the solar centers, as the forces emanating from them play upon the planetary centers and thereby affect the involved monadic units. This is hidden in the karma of the Heavenly Man, and when true esoteric astrology comes into being then more anent this will be given out. Astrology as now studied and taught misleads more than it helps, and astrological students are as yet learning but the a-b-c of this stupendous subject, and are occupied with the exoteric fringes of that great veil which has been wisely thrown over all planetary lore.
  10. Another form of energy which must ever be considered is that of the planetary Logos, as He pours His force through some one chain or some one globe upon the groups of evolving human units. This - from the human standpoint - cannot as yet be calculated, as it is dependent upon the occult "turning of the attention" by the planetary Logos in meditation upon any center in His body corporate. It is, of course, all under cosmic law, but beyond the realization of man. It involves [1052] cognizance of the planetary individual purpose, which is not revealed until the later initiations.
  11. The inherent energy of the solar atom itself has likewise a rhythmic effect upon the individual Monad, and though it only reaches the monad via the greater centers of Existence yet it has its effect upon one and all. This is another factor not sufficiently recognized.
  12. Finally, the energy of the greater life (in which our solar system but forms a part) has to be reckoned with, and the impulses emanating from the cosmic Logos, the ONE ABOUT WHOM NAUGHT MAY BE SAID reach the monadic lives and produce stimulation or retardation according to the nature of the cosmic ideation. These are necessarily entirely outside the ken of average man and are only touched upon as no tabulation would be complete without them.
  13. There is also to be borne in mind the play of energy which emanates from any one of those "Twelve signs of the Zodiac" with which astrology concerns itself. This type of force is primarily concerned with planetary stimulation, with the planetary Logoi, and is hidden in Their cyclic karma, - a karma which of course will incidentally involve those monads and devas which form Their bodies and centers.
  14. We must not ignore the three great waves of energy which sweep cyclically through the entire solar system from:
    1. The seven stars of the Great Bear. The strength of these vibrations depends upon the closeness of the connection and the accuracy of the alignment between any particular Heavenly Man and His Prototype. The mystery here is profound; it is connected with the stage in evolution of the "imperfect gods" and the objective of the planetary deities. [1053]
    2. The Seven Sisters, or the Pleiades, and from that one in particular who is occultly termed "the wife" of the planetary Logos whose scheme will eventually receive the seeds of life from our planet, which is not considered a sacred planet, as has before been stated.
    3. The sun Sirius.
