A Treatise on White Magic - Rule Ten - The Present Age and the Future
The work of the Atlantean Adepts was to impress upon the world consciousness the fact that God is Love. This is a symbolic expression of the truth as is the use of the word God. The work of the Aryan Adepts is to impress upon the world consciousness that God is Will. To do [360] this for the human family, They work with the intellect so as to bring it into control, to subordinate other forms to the mind and through the mind to reveal to man the vision of what is and what will be. Man is therefore brought into line with the esoteric head center of the one Life. In the animal kingdom, through the development of sentiency and its allied unfoldment through pain, They are bringing those types of forms into line with the heart center in Nature. This is a phrase conveying a truth which cannot be more clearly expressed until man has become more inclusive in his consciousness. Through color in the vegetable Kingdom those forms of divine manifestation are also brought into vibratory contact with that center of force in Nature which is analogous to the throat center in man.

In using these words I refer primarily to the Life which is expressing itself through our planet, to our planetary Logos, but the idea can (needless to say) be progressed to include the great Life of which our planetary Logos is but a reflection and an expression. Man, the brain of nature; the animals, the expression of the heart; the vegetable world, the expression of the creative force or of the throat center; these three kingdoms in nature forming, in a peculiar manner, correspondences to the three higher centers in man, as the three kingdoms on the involutionary arc correspond to the three lower centers, and the mineral kingdom - abstruse as the idea may seem to those of you who have not the consciousness of the life-aspect - corresponding to the solar plexus, the great clearing house between that which is above and that which is below.

These analogies change as time progresses. In Lemurian days, viewing it as a kingdom in nature, humanity expressed the solar plexus aspect, whilst the animal kingdom stood for the sacral center, and the center at the base of the spine was symbolized by the vegetable [361] kingdom. In the middle of the Atlantean period, when certain great changes and experiments were wrought, a shift in the entire process took place; certain egos came in, as you know, as related in the Secret Doctrine and in a Treatise on Cosmic Fire, and a tremendous stepping forward became possible through their efforts. The chitta or mind-stuff became more vibrant and now we have the period of its intensest activity in the concrete sense.

We are told in the esoteric teaching that all three aspects of Divinity are themselves triple, and hence we can divide the energy of mind as far as humanity is concerned into three aspects also. We have therefore:

  1. The lower concrete mind, called the chitta or mind-stuff in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
  2. The abstract mind; or that aspect of the mind which is related to the world of ideas.
  3. The intuition or pure reason which is for man the highest aspect of the mentality.

These three find their over-shadowing or enveloping field of expression in the third aspect of the Logos, which we call the Universal Mind, the active intelligent Deity. The lines of force from these three lower aspects lead back (if one may use so inadequate an expression) on to the third plane, as the astral lines of force lead back to the second or monadic plane, though as far as man's consciousness is concerned they only lead back to the buddhic or intuitional plane.

It is interesting to note that just as the Monad, impelled by desire, produces that form of life which we call the personality, so the mind aspect, as part of the purpose working out through the Universal Mind, in its turn produces that manifestation which we call a Manasaputra, the great Son of Mind on the mental plane. Hence it is the mind principle in humanity which brings into [362] manifestation the egoic body, the causal vehicle, the karana sarira, the twelve-petalled lotus. We are of course talking entirely in terms of the form aspect here. The reason for this lies back on the cosmic planes, whereon the planetary Logos has His life. From the cosmic astral plane comes the impulse which produces form existence and concrete expression - for all form-taking is the result of desire. From the cosmic mental plane comes the will-to-be in time and space, which produces the seven groups of egoic lives and the third outpouring.

It will be seen then inferentially, how the right use of energy by the initiate puts him en rapport not only with the higher planes of the solar system but also with those cosmic planes whereon our Logos has His Personality aspect, using these words in symbolic fashion. The right use of physical energy by the initiate gives him the "freedom" of the cosmic physical plane. The right use of astral energy gives him power on the cosmic astral, and the correct use of mental energy gives him entrance on to the cosmic mental. Inferentially then, the three higher centers in man when functioning perfectly play their part in this work of carrying energies from these exalted spheres into the field of activity of the initiate and of being doorways into realms hitherto closed to him.
