A Treatise on Cosmic Fire - Section Two - Division E - Motion on the Plane of Mind
4. The Law of Radiation

It will be found that more time will be given to this expression of divine activity than to any other in this section, as it is the one of the most practical utility. This Law of Radiation is one that is beginning to be recognized by scientists since their acceptation of the radioactivity of certain substances, and when they are willing to approximate the occult conception of the radiatory, or emanatory condition, of all substances at a specific point in evolution, then they will very definitely approach Reality.

Radiation is the outer effect produced by all forms in all kingdoms when their internal activity has reached such a stage of vibratory activity that the confining walls of the form no longer form a prison, but permit of the escape of the subjective essence. It marks a specific point of attainment in the evolutionary process, and this is equally true of the atom of substance with which the chemist and physicist deal, when working with the elements, as it is of the forms in the vegetable kingdom, the [1061] forms in the animal kingdom, in the human, and, like-wise, in the divine.

From some angles of vision, it might be regarded as the "true form" (which is to be understood occultly as the etheric form of energy) making its presence felt in such a way that it becomes apparent even to the scientist. Students should here remember two things:

  • First, that in all occult conclusions, it is the body of energy which is dealt with and the subjective life back of the form which is recognized as being of supreme importance.
  • Second, that the dense objective manifestation, as has been reiterated frequently, is not regarded as a principle at all; the occultist deals with principles alone.

It might be of value here to remind the student also that three things have to be recognized in all manifestation:

  • First, that the tangible objective exterior, negative, receptive, and occultly unorganized, is without form and usefulness apart from the inner energy.
  • Second, that the "true form" or the force-vehicle energizes and produces the cohesion of that which is unorganized.

Third, that the "volatile essence," or the spiritual essential Life, focuses itself in some one point within the "true form." 10 [1062]

In studying the subject of radiatory activity, we are dealing with the effect produced by the inner essence as it makes its presence felt through the form, when the form has been brought to a stage of such refinement that it becomes possible.

When this realization is applied to all the forms in all the kingdoms, it will be found possible to bridge the gaps existing between the different forms of life, and the   "elements" in every kingdom, and those unifying radiating centers will be found. The word "element" is yet confined to the basic substances in what is called essential matter, and the chemist and physicist are busy with such lives; but their correspondence (in the occult sense of the term) is to be found in every kingdom in nature, and there are forms of life in the vegetable kingdom which are occultly regarded as "radioactive," the eucalyptus tree being one such form. There are forms of animal life equally at an analogous stage and the human unit (as it approaches "liberation") demonstrates a similar phenomenon.

Again, as a planetary scheme nears its consummation, it becomes "radioactive," and through radiation transfers its essence to another "absorbent planet," or planets, as is the case with a solar system also. Its essence, or true Life, is absorbed by a receiving constellation, and the outer "case" returns to its original unorganized condition. [1063]

Under our consideration of the law of radiation, we will first of all take up the topic of the cause of radiation.

10 Form: "The model according to which nature does its external work.
- S. D., II, 107; see S. D., I, 619.

  1. Divine ideation passes from the abstract to the concrete or visible form.
    1. The objective is an emanation of the subjective. - S. D., I, 407.
    2. Impulse is Spirit energy causing objectivity. - S. D., I, 349, 683.
    3. The Logos renders objective a concealed thought. - S. D., II, 28.
  2. Three things required before any form of energy can become objective:
    - S. D., I, 89.
    1. Privation - Separation. Initial impulse. Energy. Will.
    2. Form - Quality or shape. Nature. Love.
    3. Matter - Objective sphere. Intelligent activity.
      See S. D., III, 561.
  3. Life precedes form. - S. D., I, 242.
    1. The Thinker ever remains. - S. D., II, 28.
    2. Force of life is the transformation into energy of the thought of the Logos. - See S. D., III, 179.
  4. Spirit evolves through form and out of form. - S. D., I, 680.
    1. Spirit has to acquire full self-consciousness. - S. D., I, 215.
    2. Form imprisons Spirit. - S. D., II, 775.
    3. The principle of limitation is form. - S. D., III, 561.
    4. Spirit informs all sheaths - S. D., I, 669, note.
    5. Spirit passes through the cycle of Being. - S. D., I, 160.
  5. The devas are the origin of form - S. D., I, 488.
    They exist in two great groups:
    1. The Ahhi are the vehicle of divine thought. - S. D., I, 70.
    2. The Army of the Voice. - S. D., I, 124.

    They are the sumtotal of the substance of the four higher planes and of the three lower.

  6. There is a form which combines all forms. - S. D., I, 77, 118.
