A Treatise on Cosmic Fire - Section Two - Division F - The Law of Attraction
11. The Law of the Schools. (The Law of Love and Light.) This is a mysterious term used to cover the law as it affects the expansions of consciousness which an initiate undergoes, and his ability to attract to himself through knowledge,
  1. His own Higher Self, so as to produce alignment and illumination,
  2. His Guru,
  3. That which he seeks to know,
  4. That which he can utilize in his work of service,
  5. Other souls with whom he can work.

It will be evident, therefore, to the thoughtful student that this Law of the Schools is primarily applicable to all units of divine life who have arrived at, or transcended the stage of self-consciousness. It has consequently a vital connection with the human kingdom, and there is an occult significance in the fact that this is the eleventh [1174] Law. It is the law which enables a man to unite two of his aspects (the personal self and the Higher Self). It is the law which governs the transition of the human atom into another and a higher kingdom. It is the law which (when comprehended and conformed to) enables a man to enter into a new cycle. It is the law of the adept, of the Master, and of the perfected man. For this reason it might be of profit here if we dealt with it a little more fully than with the other laws, for mankind is now at the stage where a number of its units are ready to come under the specific influence of this law, and thus be transferred out of the Hall of Learning, via the Hall of Wisdom, into the fifth or spiritual kingdom.

This Law of the Schools does not specifically apply to the deva evolution. They come under another law called "The Law of Passive Resistance" which does not concern us here, nor would it profit us to consider it. Three main groups of existences are controlled by it:

  1. Human beings from the moment they tread the Probationary Path.
  2. All the units of the fifth kingdom, therefore, all the members of the Hierarchy.
  3. The planetary Logoi throughout the system.

It will be apparent, therefore, that this law concerns the great experiment which has been inaugurated on earth by our planetary Logos in connection with the process of initiation, and it has only held sway since the Door of Initiation was opened in Atlantean days. It does not, therefore, apply to all the members of the human family; some of whom will achieve slowly and under the sway of the basic Law of Evolution. It does not affect, in any way, for instance, those members of the human family who have individualized on the earth chain through the fanning of the spark of mind - one of the methods employed by the Lords of the Flame, as earlier seen. [1175]

It can be studied in two main divisions, first, in connection with the human units passing under hierarchical influence in the Hall of Wisdom, and also in connection with the various planetary schemes. Each scheme exists in order to teach a specific aspect of consciousness, and each planetary school or Hierarchy subjects its pupils to this law, only in manners diverse. These planetary schools are necessarily governed by certain factors of which the two most important are the peculiar karma of the planetary Logos concerned, and His particular Ray.

It is not possible at this stage to convey to students the information as to the nature of each planetary school. They exist in five great groups:

  1. The esoteric non-sacred planets, called in occult parlance "the outer round" or outer circle of initiates. Of these our earth is one, but being aligned in a peculiar fashion with certain spheres on the inner round, a dual opportunity exists for mankind, which facilitates, whilst it complicates, the evolutionary process.
  2. The sacred planets, called sometimes (when this Law of the Schools is under consideration) the "seven grades of psychic knowledge or the seven divisions of the field of knowledge."
  3. The inner round, which carries with it vast opportunity for those who can surmount its problems and withstand its temptations. This inner round has a peculiar appeal to units on certain Rays, and has its own specific dangers. The inner round is the round that is followed by those who have passed through the human stage and have consciously developed the faculty of etheric living and can follow the etheric cycles, functioning consciously on the three higher etheric planes in all parts of the system. They have - for certain occult and specific purposes - broken the connection between the third etheric and the four lower subplanes of the physical plane. This [1176] round is followed only by a prepared percentage of humanity, and is closely associated with a group who pass with facility and develop with equal facility on the three planets that make a triangle with the earth, namely Mars, Mercury, and Earth. These three planets - in connection with this inner round - are considered only as existing in etheric matter, and (in relation to one of the Heavenly Men) hold a place analogous to the etheric triangle found in the human etheric body. I have here conveyed more than has as yet been exoterically communicated anent this inner round and by the study of the human etheric triangle, its function, and the type of force which circulates around it, much may be deduced about the planetary inner round. We must bear in mind in this connection that just as the human etheric triangle is but the preparatory stage to a vast circulation within the sphere of the entire etheric body, so the etheric planetary triangle - passing from the Earth to Mars and Mercury - is but the preparatory circulatory system to a vaster round included within the sphere of influence of one planetary Lord.
  4. The circle of the planetoids. Students of the Ageless Wisdom are apt to forget that the Life of the Logos manifests itself through those circling spheres which (though not large enough to be regarded as planets) pursue their orbital paths around the solar center and have their own evolutionary problems and are functioning as part of the solar Body. They are informed - as are the planets - by a cosmic Entity and are under the influence of the Life impulses of the solar Logos as are the greater bodies. The evolutions upon them are analogous to, though not identical with, those of our planet, and they swing through their cycles in the Heavens under the same laws as do the greater planets.
  5. The absorbing Triangles. This term is applied to the evolutionary schools found located in the three major [1177] planets of our system - Uranus, Neptune and Saturn - and to those found in the three major chains, and three major globes in a planetary scheme. The Rulers of these planets, chains and globes are called the "Divine Examiners," and Their work concerns the human kingdom specifically and entirely. They are responsible for the work of
    1. Transferring men from one school to another, and from one grade to another.
    2. For the expanding of the human consciousness under the law,
    3. For the transmutation of the forms of the human unit in the three worlds and the consequent negation of the form,
    4. For the radioactivity of the fourth kingdom in nature.

We might regard the presiding lives in these departmental schools as the custodians of the Path, and responsible, therefore, for the divine Pilgrim during the final stages of the treading of the Path of Evolution. They begin to work with men from the moment they first set foot upon the Probationary Path and They continue Their work until the seventh initiation is taken.

The Masters, therefore, Who take pupils for training, are numbered amongst them, whilst the Masters Who do not concern Themselves with individuals and their development are not.

It is not possible to give fully the types of schools and teaching which is given on the different planets. All that can be done is to give an occult phrase which will convey to the intuitive student the necessary hint.
