Life After the Virus

Life After the Virus

We recently had a meme posted that deserves a dispassionate examination. It was originated by the author Brene Brown and reads as follows:

“We will not go back to normal. Normal never was. Our pre-corona existence was never normal other than we normalized greed, inequity, exhaustion, depletion, extraction, disconnection, confusion, rage, hoarding, hate and lack. We should not long to return, My friends. We are being given the opportunity to stitch a new garment. One that fits all of humanity and nature.”

This thought embodies the idealist side of humanity’s thinking. On the other end, we have many wanting most aspects of the old normalcy to return.

Which wing represents the most sound thinking?

As usual the truth is not found in either extreme but a some point in the middle.

Le us start here by analyzing the other side of this quote. It makes it sound like all the norms that existed prior to the endemic were very bad things. It makes me wonder what kind view of the world Brene had, to see only the negative around her. As for me I saw many good things from the past that we certainly do not want to eliminate. Here are a few, speaking from the view of one who lives in the United States

(1) Fee speech. Even though many have been attacking this freedom here in the USA I can still speak my mind without fear of repercussions. However, since the virus hit free speech has been curtailed. Many voicing opposition to establishment protocol or experimenting or recommending anything beyond that approved by the establishment and Big Pharma are attacked. Some have lost their jobs, been sued or prosecuted. Others have been banned from social media and Youtube.

I recently listened to Dr. Simone Gold on Coast to Coast describe how her freedom to prescribe FDA approved drugs has been curtailed and any action not approved by the media establishment deserves discipline.

Here is the link to her Coast To Coast interview: LINK

And here is an interview on her website in case you do not have a Coast to Coast membership: LINK

I could cite many other examples but do not want to write a book here.

(2) Not having to wear a mask wherever you go. Just questioning the value of a mask here can bring on personal attack whereas numerous countries that do not require masks are suffering fewer deaths and infections than the United States.

Everything that happens in physical reality has symbolic meaning. What is the symbolic meaning of wearing masks? There are several, but the main one is that the mask covers the mouth, representing speech. Since the mask has dominated, free speech has been curtailed correspondingly.

I certainly would like the normal of not wearing a mask to return.

(3) Public Gatherings. We miss beng able to go to restaurants, ballgames and social gatherings without concern of infection or other people being closer to you than six feet. I do not know anyone not looking forward to returning to the norm in this area.

(4) A return of people to their jobs. The closing and curtailment of small business, and some larger ones, has caused widespread unemployment and human suffering. Some argue that it has caused more suffering than the virus itself.

Now let us examine the things from the quote that are said to be the norm before the virus which are hoped to not be the norm afterwards.

(1) Greed. I do not think that greed has been the norm. Most people I know are fairly generous and willing to share. Think of people you know. Is greed the norm with the majority of them? Probably not.

Could each of us be a little more generous? Probably, but that doesn’t mean we are sinfully greedy.

Many associate greed with businesses, but businesses are composed of people like you and me. Most of them are just trying to make enough money so all involved can make a decent living. A handful seek to take more than they should but most are providing an honest service, especially the small businesses.

(2) Inequity. There are many inequities and not all are bad. After all, who wants the same size fitting all in appearance, dress, type of work, belief system, friends, etc.? Variety is the spice of life. Negative inequity such as unfair treatment socially or under the law is somthing many nations are working on but we often shift the unfairness around rather than correcting it. Greater fairness in equality is a slow process to achieve and it is unrealistic to expect a miraculous change because of a virus. Then too, in some cases a change in perception is needed. Many people see themselves as victims when their reality is of their own making as is taught in most advanced spiritual disciplines.

It is interesting that many have pointed out that the virus itself is not fair. For instance, someone my age at 75 years is 220 times more likely to die of the virus than a person between the ages of 18-29 and a person in the 5-17 year age group is 16 times less likely to die than the18-29 group. LINK

There is also a difference by race. Blacks suffer more deaths than any other race. In the United States as of Aug 18, 2020 they have 88.4 deaths per 100,000 Latino Americans fare better at 54.4 deaths while whites have only 40.4. On the other hand, Asians do best of all at 36.4 deaths per 100,000. LINK

Part of this inequity is caused by racial history of our ancestors being exposed to different viruses in the past, giving partial immunity, and part due to social and work conditions.

(3) Exhaustion. This is an odd point in the list for I do not know of anyone complaining of this. Probably the main cause of exhaustion is overwork and some will continue to push themselves in the future as in the past.

(4) Depletion and Extraction. I assume she is talking of a depletion of resources. Because of the genius of humanity any depletion is temporary. If we get short on one resource we will develop another that will be even better. For instance, with energy there are a number of alternatives that should supply abundance clean energy within the next fifty years. Just nuclear fusion alone has the potential to supply unlimited clean energy.

Because of many lockdowns we are using fewer resources but this is likely to be a temporary thing. Fortunately, technology is leading us toward unlimited resources of energy, if we do not self destruct first.

(5) Disconnection. Not sure what type of problem she was referring to before the virus, but during the endemic we have suffered a disconnect of Biblical proportions. People dying in nursing homes are not permitted visitation from family. Because of various lockdowns many are restricted from seeing loved ones and friends. Groups are hesitant to get together socially and when they do they often refuse to give each other a hug or even a handshake.

The old norm here looks pretty good compared to the disconnect during the present virus.

(6) Confusion. This is an odd ingredient in the list as many have suffered confusion in the past; it continues in the present and confused people will be with us for the foreseeable future. The fog of confusion will be slowly lifted as the consciousness of the people is raised and this will be a gradual process.

(7) Rage. There is always a certain amount of rage in society and that is not likely to end soon. Then too, we have cycles where the enraged express themselves aggressively, such as during the Vietnam War and the present reaction to George Floyd’s death.

At this point it is important that we promote goodwill as much as possible along with the realization that we are all brothers and sisters on the same planet, belonging to the same human race, and need to focus on unity rather than division. This will require the better angels of our nature to surface and the solution will involve a lengthy struggle. There will be no magic bullet on this when the virus gets under control though all certainly hope things calm down.

(8) Hoarding. Didn’t see much of a problem with hoarding before the virus, but when it became a threat we all saw hoarding like we’ve never seen before. Toilet paper, tissues, disinfectants and many canned goods just disappeared from shelves by hoarders. Fortunately, the supplies in many areas are returning to the old normal and most figure that is a good thing.

(9) Hate. There was a certain amount of hate before the virus, during the virus and it will exist after the virus. Again, we must spread goodwill and brotherhood. The words of the Master are apply:

“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.” Matt 5:44-45

We must resist using accusations of hate as a weapon for many good and loving people are falsely accused of hating just because they have differences with the accuser. Let us focus on seeing the best in our neighbor, not the worst.

(10) Lack. Poverty is a problem humanity has worked with from he beginning of civilization. What is not realized by many is that the world war on poverty has been a great success story. They figure that extreme poverty is living on $1.90 or less in today’s money. In 1800, 81% of the world lived in this state of poverty. By 1990 only 44% were in such poverty. But since then success has increased so that by 2018 less than 10% of the world live in extreme poverty.

https://cepr.shorthandstories.com/history-poverty/

Since the virus hit many throughout the world have suffered an increase in poverty, so in this case the goal should be to get back to where we were and then move ahead again from there.

Brene ends with this statement: “We should not long to return, My friends. We are being given the opportunity to stitch a new garment. One that fits all of humanity and nature.”

As pointed out there are some things we want to return to such as less poverty, less rage, less disconnection, less hoarding etc. And I agree that we should take every opportunity to improve our situation, but in her short thought she doesn’t present any specific goals. She does seem to think, along with many others, that the crisis of the virus is presenting us with a great opportunity for positive change.

The problem is that many of the good and spiritual people of the planet are just sitting back waiting for someone else to make this happen and the effect is that power hungry politicians and some large business are seizing the moment which could result in much greater control by the powers-that-be over our lives.

A positive move forward always takes time and a lot of focus and energy. Promoting an ideal alone does little to alter reality.

The writings of Alice A. Bailey give excellent advice to idealists:

“Their (The idealists) dreams and ideas deal with projects for which the world of today is not ready and will not be ready for several thousand years. It is an easy thing for them to present impossible Utopias which have not the faintest relation to things which are needed today and which could be made possible. The name of these people is legion, and at this time they constitute a definite hindrance. A vision of the impossible is not the type of vision which will keep the people from perishing. Because of an inability to compromise and to face up to things as they are, these people and those whom they influence are landed in despair and disillusionment.” Externalization of the Hierarchy, Pages 459-460

Comment: This problem, caused by an attachment to the ideal, is causing many difficulties today. Many form an ideal in their mind of how the world, government, human relations should play out and if things are not moving fast enough they will march, attack, riot etc. Many an idealist acts as if there is an unlimited supply of money in the hands of government and the rich and they should be forced to give it up, even if it should cause an economic collapse.

The wise merely look to the next step to be taken and do not try to take ten steps at a time.

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 10

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 10
Our Cosmic Logos

When we take into consideration all the veils and thoughtforms that may be hiding the true points of various centers, the student may wonder if it is possible to identify actual solar systems that may be centers in our local Cosmic Logos. So far our sun is the only one positively named and we know that it is the heart center. As noted earlier, evidence presented by DK indicates that Sirius is the throat center. So the obvious question is whether there are any other clues we may have missed? In answer to this I would say that there are three.

Clue One: Just as the Great Bear and the Pleiades are centers containing groups of stars in close proximity, like a family, even so, it would be reasonable to assume that the seven solar systems of our local Cosmic Logos are also in fairly close proximity. If this is a true conclusion, then weight is added to Sirius being a local center, for it is one of the closest major stars to us being just 8.6 light years away.

Clue Two: DK gives a hint as to size. Concerning the seven solar systems of which we are a part he says

“…our solar system is revolving around a cosmic centre along with six other constellations of even greater magnitude in the majority of cases than ours, only one being approximately of the same magnitude as our solar system.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 1084

This tells us that five of the solar systems from our group are of a “greater magnitude” while one is similar to ours.

Sirius, which is evidently in our group, is definitely one of the five with greater magnitude, for it radiates with 25 times the energy as given off by our sun and has twice the mass.

So, which star could be the one that is similar to our sun?

The obvious answer would be Alpha Centauri A.

The Alpha Centauri system is the closest one to us making it a good candidate for the local group right there. It is a triple star system and its main star is very similar to our sun. It is just about 10% heavier and hotter than our sun, but about 50% brighter.

Its companion star, Alpha Centauri B, is a little smaller and cooler than the sun.

The third star is a red dwarf only about 12% the size of our sun.

So, where would Alpha Centauri and other systems fit in as far as the seven solar systems go?

Clue Three: DK gives us another important hint. He speaks of:

“A cosmic wheel, or a group of seven constellations. These are grouped according to:
(a) Their magnitude,
(b) Their vibration,
(c) Their colour,
(d) Their influence upon each other.” TCF, Page 1085

The magnitude and color are registered by astronomers. The vibration is esoteric and not understood by them. As far as (d) goes scientists recognize only gravitational influence, whereas esoterists recognize their influence as living beings and emanators of the seven rays.

Let us then focus on magnitude and color, something accurately tabulated by scientists.

Using the Law of Correspondences, we can assume there would be similarities between the centers in human and higher lives. Such correspondences are rarely exact, but do give indications.

We are told that the Sun is the heart center of our Cosmic Logos, so let us look at the colors associated with the human heart center. In describing its color DK says it is “glowing golden.”

And what color is our sun? It is about as close to a gold color as any star out there.

We suspect that Sirius is the throat center. So what color does DK associate with this? He says it is “silvery blue, the blue predominating.” Silvery blue is a very accurate description of the color given off by Sirius, a much hotter sun than ours. In addition, we are told that the “Blue” Lodge makes it home there.

The main two stars in the Alpha Centauri system are yellow and light rose in color. This corresponds to one of the two major petals in the ajna center.

The other petal is blue and purple. There are no purple stars, but each star has an exoteric color we can see in the physical and esoteric one, not obvious to the observer. For instance DK quotes from the Secret Doctrine stating, “The true colour of the sun is blue.” Esoteric Astrology, Page 671.

Then he expands saying, “The Logos of our system is concentrating on the love or blue aspect. This—as the synthesis—manifests as indigo.” Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 127

So the stars indeed shine with visible colors depending on temperature and composition, from red to orange, to yellow, to white and then blue for the hottest of them.

All the colors of the centers are found in the visible stars except for the purple in part of the ajna center and some green in the solar plexus. So these colors could be represented esoterically.

In searching for the other four solar systems which could be centers in our Cosmic Logos, we have three clues. First DK tells us the rest in question are all larger than our sun. Second, would be their colors, as differentiated in centers, and third, they would be in fairly close proximity.

A good candidate for the head center would be Vega. At 25 light years distance it is still considered a close neighbor. It is larger than Sirius and almost twice as bright. It gives out 40 times more radiation than our sun. It is very hot and glows bright white, perhaps corresponding to the white petals in the crown.

A good candidate for the base of the spine is Pollux, as it is our closest orange star of significant size, corresponding to the orange petals in this center. It is about nine times the size and twice the mass of our sun. It gives off 33 times as much light as our sun.

Acturus, a giant red star, 37 light years away, is a good candidate for the sacral center. It is ancient, over seven billion years old, and near the end of its life at 25 times the size of the sun, giving out over 100 times as much energy.

The best local fit for the solar plexus is the Zeta Herculis double star system in the constellation of Hercules, 35 light years away. Together they give off a rosy orange-red light that corresponds to the color of the solar plexus as given by DK.

Thus, we have a potential Cosmic Logos conforming to the Law of Correspondences and DK’s statement that five of the solar systems would be of a larger magnitude than ours and one would be similar. This tells us one more thing often overlooked. DK’s writings indicate that a star would most likely have to be as big as our sun or larger to be considered for a center in a greater logos, as he mentions nothing smaller. That raises this question. Where do the smaller stars fit in? 70% of the galaxy is composed of red dwarfs and many of them are only about 2% the magnitude of the sun. Then there are white dwarfs and many other smaller suns. Overall ,90% of the stars out there are smaller than our sun, yet basically overlooked by esoterists.

Again, we look to the Law of Correspondences. In the human body there are seven major centers but many lesser ones. In addition, DK says there are three other significant ones and “twenty-one lesser centres and forty-nine smaller centres known to the esotericists.” Esoteric Healing, Page 72

In addition to these, there are many smaller centers corresponding to acupuncture points.

So if we correspond The One About Whom Naught May Be Said to the centers of the human body, we can expect this great life to, not only embody the seven centers or solar systems, but many lesser systems and red dwarfs. Each of these smaller suns would be a minor center in some higher logos.

It is an amazing thing to contemplate life as it manifests from the tiny atom up to the Cosmic Logos and beyond. It stretches the imagination to think on these things, leaving the seeker to exclaim, “The mystery of godliness, how great it is.”

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 9

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 9
Constellations and Thoughtforms

As it turns out, DK has only definitely named one center in the body of our immediate Cosmic Logos of Seven Solar Systems, and that is our solar system which is the heart center.

He is not clear as to whether Sirius is part of our system or another, whether it is centered on the heart or the throat.

Here is my best guess. Sirius is the throat center and our solar logos is the heart of our immediate Cosmic Logos. Then there are seven groups of seven other centers who form the body of a greater logos. Our Cosmic Logos is the heart center in this greater being. This would explain why Sirius is spoken of as being connected with love-wisdom. It sends to us because the brotherhood there is more evolved than here, and they are better able to pick up the will of the greater logos in relation to love and share that with us.

It would seem that five stars and constellations DK loosely linked to centers are not likely to be a part of our local Cosmic Logos. For one thing, we are not in the same league as Betelgeuse, Polaris, Alcyone and Antares as their systems are much larger. In addition, they are all over 400 light years distant, and from any of these systems our sun could not even be seen with the naked eye. In addition, there are over a million other suns within 400 million light years. The constellations he mentions may be centers somewhere and send us energies, but they are not likely to be a part of our immediate Cosmic Logos.

His manner of dealing with the influences of these systems can be explained in this statement concerning the “great illusion” around the Zodiac. He says the “potency of the thoughtforms which have been built up in connection with the twelve signs. These thoughtforms were originally constructed or anchored upon the mental plane by the Hierarchy in Atlantean days and they have steadily gained in power ever since. They serve as focal points for certain forces and enable the individual, for instance, to be in touch with great reservoirs of energy which then definitely condition him.” Esoteric Astrology, Page 69

DK speaks of “blinds” in relation to a couple of potential centers, and no wonder if much of the energy picked up from the various stars and constellations is filtered through thoughtforms created right here on earth by the Hierarchy.

This doesn’t mean the energies are not real, but that the Hierarchy has devised a scientific way to pick up the energies of the seven rays from numerous cosmic sources.

Let us take the constellation of Draco, for instance, which DK relates to the base of the spine. It consists of about 20 stars that are visible to the naked eye on a clear dark night. The thoughtform around this series of stars is related to a dragon or a snake-type image and subtleties of what such an image may represent. Thus, when the student focuses on these stars and accesses the thoughtform, he links more into the energies drawn into the thoughtform than the actual constellation itself.

To us on earth, when we look at a constellation like Draco it appears that all the stars in it are linked up as if they are one big family, but what is often unrealized is that if the observer shifted his location 90 degrees in reference to them, most of them would not appear to be linked up at all.

When we look at a constellation in the night sky it may seem that the stars are together and a similar distance from us, but such is not the case. Here are some distances from significant stars of Draco: Eltanin is 154.3 light-years away, Aldibain is 92.1, Rastaban is 380, Altais is 97, Aldhibah is 330, Edasich is 101, Batentaban Borealis is only 26 and Kappa Draconis is 490 light years away.

These stars range from 26 light years away to 490, a huge distance that would cause them to not be seen as part of the same group from another part of the galaxy. It is merely an illusion caused by our reference point that makes them appear in a group formation.

On the other hand, the Great Bear is another story and a case could be made that it does indeed consist of a family of stars. Five of the seven main stars were all created about the same time – 300 million years ago – and reside within a few light years of each other, and are all around 80 light years from us.

Two of the stars, a pointer, Dubhe, and Alkaid on the end of the handle do not seem to belong. They are some distance away from the main group, a different age and not moving in sync with them. There are eight additional stars associated with the Great Bear, and two of these could be the actual centers for which Dubhe, and Alkaid veil.

Astronomers say that Sirius is in the same moving group as the cluster at the Great Bear, but they attribute that to an accident of nature since it had a different creation date. Even so, this could signify an esoteric connection.

Because of the close group association of 13 stars and close proximity, the energies of the Great Bear could indeed have a powerful effect on us with or without a thoughtform to assist.

The Pleiades is perhaps the most closely knit star family mentioned by DK, though overall they average about five times the distance from us as the Great Bear – approximately 400 light years away compared to 80 for the Great Bear. All the main stars in the group are young at less than 150 million years of age. The Seven Sisters have the names of Maia, Electra, Alcyone, Taygete, Asterope, Celaeno and Merope. Atlas and Pleione are two other significant stars that represent their divine parents. In addition to these nine, there are five others that are visible to the naked eye, making 14 in all. But with modern telescopes astronomers tell us that the Pleiades contain an additional 1000 stars that belong to this group, so whatever life of which the center, it is a significant one.

Keep in mind that at this distance from us a star comparable to our sun would be invisible to the naked eye. We only see the Seven Sisters because they are larger and much more radiant than our sun. Take the star Celaeno, for example. It is a sister that is barely visible on a clear dark night, but it shines 344 times brighter than our sun. That is about 14 times more radiant than Sirius. Then the brighter sister Alcyone is 1000 times brighter than our sun. These Sisters just seem dim because they are so far away. Thus, when we speak of the Pleiades, we are talking about a massive center of 1000 stars, which belong to the same family, with most being larger than our sun . As a group they are bound to exert a strong influence on a large portion of our local universe and, with or without a thoughtform, their energies would affect us here.

Ursa Minor, the Little Dipper is another story. They do not move nor were created as a family, but are kind of a random association of stars of various types and distances that create the illusion of a family in a constellation. In reality they were al created at different times and are in seven different locations. They only seem to be grouped because of how they are viewed from our cosmic location, similar to Draco. Notice the differences in distance and age of the seven stars of the Little Dipper:

Polaris: Distance 433 light years away; Age 70 million years
Kochab: Distance 131 light years away; Age 2.95 billion years old
Pherkad: Distance 487 light years away; Age 100 million years old
Anwar al Farkadain: Distance 97 light years away; Age 1.7 million years old
Akhfa al Farkadain: Distance 368 light years away; Age unknown, but fairly young.
Urodelus; Distance 300 light years away: Age 2.95 billion years old
Yildun: Distance 172 light years away; Age 254 million years old

These stars have little in common with each other, and if viewed from another place in the galaxy would not seem to be together at all as a constellation. Therefore, any accumulative energy from Ursa Minor (The Little Dipper) has to be supplied by a thoughtform acting as a transmitter.

In addition to various stars and constellations representing centers, we find there is also a higher correspondence to the lower quaternary.

“Our solar system, with the Pleiades and one of the stars of the Great Bear, form a cosmic triangle, or an aggregation of three centres in the Body of HIM OF WHOM NAUGHT MAY BE SAID. The seven stars in the constellation of the Great Bear are the correspondences to the seven head centres in the body of that Being, greater than our Logos. Again, two other systems, when allied with the solar system and the Pleiades, make a lower quaternary which are eventually synthesised into the seven head centres in much the same way as in the human being after the fourth initiation.

  1. The base of the spine.
  2. The solar plexus.
  3. The heart.
  4. The throat.

The sevenfold head centre in its turn finds ultimate expression in the gorgeous twofold centre above the top of the head and surrounding it. Equally so, beyond the above named constellations is still another cosmic centre. The name of this centre is one of the secrets of the final initiation, the seventh. These are the only correspondences that may as yet be imparted. What lies beyond the solar ring-pass-not may be of intellectual interest, but, for the purposes of microcosmic evolution it is a matter of no vast import.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Pages 182-183

Students may be perplexed about the throat and heart being in any lower quaternary, but DK is speaking of such in relation to the advanced disciple.

From our standpoint on this planet, the heart would be our solar system and the throat would be the Pleiades. Then he associates Betelgeuse with the solar plexus and Draco with the base of the spine, giving a hint as to the full quaternary he has in mind. Keep in mind that there are most likely thoughtforms and veils involved, though the energies are real. The actual solar systems in our local Cosmic Logos as centers for the throat, the solar plexus and the base are merely represented by greater constellations and thoughtforms behind them.

Above these great lives is a greater one still, and the name (implying understanding) is only available to a seventh degree initiate. Since DK is a fifth degree, this would imply that he has limited knowledge here of such a great being. I think this explains some of his ambiguous teachings of the Cosmic Logoi.

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 8

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 8
The Greater Cosmic Logos

The other hints given us concern not merely individual stars, but constellations of stars.

And what does this tell us?

Whereas seven solar systems compose a first level Cosmic Logos (or The One About Whom Naught May Be Said), it would take seven constellations to create a second level Logos.

DK does give out several hints about the placement of several constellations. For instance, he says this about three of them:

“The seven stars of the Great Bear or Ursa Major are involved in an intricate relation with Ursa Minor and the Pleiades. With this we shall not deal. This major triplicity of constellations has a peculiar relation to that Great Being to Whom I have at times referred as the One About Whom Naught Can Be Said. All that can be hinted at is that these three galaxies of stars are the three aspects of that Indescribable, Absolute Monad, the Ineffable Cause of the seven solar systems – of which ours is one.” Esoteric Astrology, Pages 607-608

Here he clearly says that these three constellations “are the three aspects” of a great Cosmic Logos. The three aspects are, of course, Rays One, Two and Three, which govern the head, the heart and the throat.

If his notation is in order, the Great Bear would represent Ray One, the head center; Ursa Minor, Ray Two; the heart and the Pleiades, Ray Three, the throat.

He does give some evidence this is correct. Concerning the Great Bear he says, “The seven stars in the constellation of the Great Bear are the correspondences to the seven head centres in the body of that Being, greater than our Logos.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 182

Concerning the Great Bear he said, “Its sevenfold unified energies pass through Shamballa.” Esoteric Astrology, Page 416

He thus relates the Great Bear to the head center, even to linking it in relationship with the head center of our planet which is Shamballa.

Then he gives evidence that the Pleiades are linked to the third ray and throat center.

“The energies coming from the Pleiades, an aggregation of seven energies, are connected with the active intelligent aspect of logoic expression, and influence the form side of all manifestation. They focus primarily through Humanity.” Esoteric Astrology, Page 416

The “the active intelligent aspect” is Ray Three, which is linked to the throat center. In addition, as already was pointed out, DK also associates one of its stars, Alcyone, with Ray Three.

This leaves Ursa Minor to represent the final aspect which would be Ray Two – the heart. But how do we harmonize this with the link noted previously of Polaris (in Ursa Minor) to the head, as well as this statement?

“We have also brought into relation to our solar system another constellation, called the Little Bear (Ursa Minor) which is a reflection of or a corollary to the major energies of its greater prototype, Ursa Major, the Great Bear. These facts contain a great mystery connected with the inter-relation of Ursa Major, Ursa Minor and the Pleiades; they constitute one of the greatest and more important of the triplicities to be found in the heavens as far as we have astronomically ascertained the nature of our immediate universe.” Esoteric Astrology, Page 202

So here we are told that Ursa Minor is “a reflection of or a corollary to the major energies of its greater prototype, Ursa Major, the Great Bear.”

So apparently Ursa Major and Minor are closely linked as if they were in the same and not different centers. How then can they be linked to two different aspects as previously mentioned by DK?

DK says this:

“It has been said that in the head of every man are seven centres of force, which are linked to the other centres in the body, and through which the force of the Ego is spread and circulated, thus working out the plan.” Initiation Human and Solar, Page 30

This would mean that one of these seven centers would be a reflection of the heart center:

“The twelve petalled lotus in the head (which is the higher correspondence of the heart centre,” Light of the Soul, Page 293

This twelve petalled lotus is a major part of the crown center and is called the “heart center in the head.”

Concerning these DK says that in the crown “There are twelve major petals of white and gold, and 960 secondary petals are arranged around the central twelve.” Letters on Occult Meditation, Page 78

Concerning these twelve he says, “the Buddha represents the twelve-petalled lotus in the head, of which the Christ represents the counterpart, the twelve-petalled lotus of the heart centre.” Externalization of the Hierarchy, Page 87

Now if we synthesize this information, we can conclude that the remaining prime aspect, Ray Two, is held by Ursa Minor and is linked as a Cosmic Buddha as a heart center in the head, closely aligned with the Great Bear, whose prime focus is Ray One; but obviously, all the rays are at play to some degree.

Several times, DK equates an additional constellation with a center stating, “the constellation of the Dragon has the same relation to the ONE greater than our Logos as the centre at the base of the spine has to a human being.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 1204

The constellation of the dragon is Draco, and is here linked with the base of the spine. This center has been associated with Rays One, Four and Seven. Since the Great Bear seems associated with Ray One, I would guess that Ray Seven would be linked to Draco as the dragon, and magic seem to be a good fit for this ray.

There is one more reference to a great center in a Cosmic Logos:

“The zodiacal wheel is itself essentially a cosmic centre; it is a twelve-petalled lotus, but it is a twelve-petalled lotus within the thousand-petalled lotus of an unknown cosmic Entity, the One referred to in my earlier books as the ONE ABOUT WHOM NAUGHT MAY BE SAID.” Rays and Initiations, Page 339

The twelve-petalled lotus in the crown would be the heart center in the head. One would suppose that each petal is associated with one of the twelve constellations of the zodiac.

This is quite a different identification than anything else noted by DK, as the twelve constellations contain many more stars than all the other references made to other possible centers. Yet these twelve great constellations just form a part of one center. How can this be?

If our immediate cosmic logos has a mere seven solar systems in its body, then this center occupied by the zodiac has to be a part of a much greater logos. It appears that DK applies what little he can say about the Cosmic Logos, or The One About Whom Naught May Be Said, to all lives greater than our solar logos as if they are all part of the great mystery. He gives a hint to his thinking in this statement;

These cosmic wheels, according to the esoteric books, are divided into forty-nine groups, each comprising millions of septenary constellations.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 1085

So he is telling us that there are millions of Cosmic Logoi, and when he speaks of a solar system, constellation, or even twelve constellations responding as a center, he could be referring to one of many possible Cosmic Logoi.

Another problem adding to the difficulty is that DK’s knowledge of Cosmic beings seems limited, for he calls it an “unknown Cosmic Entity.” Then he says this:

“…until it is known which cosmic Logos recognises our solar Logos as a centre in His body, and which six other systems are affiliated with ours, it will not be possible to touch upon the systemic stage of manasic development.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 402

It would seem here that it is unknown, even to him, “which cosmic Logos recognises our solar Logos as a centre in His body, and which six other systems are affiliated with ours.” It should be no mystery then why he labels all lives greater than our solar logos as The One About Whom Naught May Be Said. There is much missing knowledge about such beings. He has given us some interesting hints, but even he has been limited in what he can access and reveal.

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 7

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 7
The Centers and the Cosmic Logos

DK indicates that he and the Masters do not have a full knowledge of the Cosmic Logos, which is one obvious reason that they have tagged him as “The One About Whom Naught May Be Said.” Even so, some things are given out, and what we have is interesting to contemplate.

Concerning the seven centers in Its cosmic body, DK stops short of giving us a clear and itemized list. The one center he clearly identifies is the position of our sun. He says this:

“There are, for instance, in our solar system, seven sacred planets which correspond to the seven individual force centres in man, the seven solar systems, of which our solar system is one, and in their turn the seven energy centres of the One to Whom I have referred in my other books as the One About Whom Naught Can Be Said.” Esoteric Astrology, Pages 11-12

Then he elaborates a little further:

“Our solar system is one of many, and not the greatest. It constitutes a fragment of a greater whole. This greater whole, formed of seven parts (or seven solar systems), is itself immersed in the waters of space, is born of desire and, therefore, a child of necessity. It draws its life from its surroundings. Streaming into our solar system from all sides are force currents, emanating from what A Treatise on Cosmic Fire calls the “One about Whom naught may be said”. These currents embody His will and desire, express His love or attractive capacity, and manifest as that great thought-form we call our system.” A Treatise on White Magic, Page 274

Here DK tells us of a Cosmic Logos (The One About Whom Naught May Be Said) who embodies seven solar systems “of which our solar system is one.” Thus our system would be one of the centers in this great being. If one assumes that because our Solar Logos is on Ray Two, which would represent the heart center, he would seem to be correct, as DK says this:

“…our sun is the embodiment of the heart, or love aspect, of the Logos (Who is Himself the heart of ONE ABOUT WHOM NAUGHT MAY BE SAID)” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 156

“The centre in the cosmic body of the ONE ABOUT WHOM NOUGHT MAY BE SAID of which our solar Logos is the embodied force is the heart centre.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 511

It would seem then that our sun holds a firm position as the heart center in the cosmic logos, but some of DK’s statements about Sirius obscure this idea. For instance, he says:

“In like manner our Logos loses not His identity, even though He forms part of the Consciousness of the Logos of Sirius. In His turn, the Sirian Logos forms one of the seven Grand Heavenly Men, who are the centres in the body of ONE OF WHOM NOUGHT MAY BE SAID.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 572

Since we are told that Sirius is one of the seven centers and shares a consciousness with our solar logos, some assume that perhaps they share the heart center. He even tells us that Sirius is “the emanating Source of our planetary Logos, Sanat Kumara, and in the two great planetary centres, Shamballa and the Hierarchy. I refer to that stupendous Source of our entire planetary life, the sun Sirius, and to the Lodge of Divine Beings Who work from this heavenly Centre.” Rays and Initiations, Page 687

It is interesting that he calls Sirius the “Source of our entire planetary life.”

This seems kind of odd since our physical solar system is much older than Sirius. Sirius is only about 240 million years old, while our sun is much more ancient at about 4.6 billion years or about 19 times older.

So, according to science, the physical Sirius was being born about the same time the first dinosaurs appeared on the earth.

The answer to this conundrum may lie in the esoteric fact that the physical is just one of seven globes, as well as the fact that suns and planets reincarnate. Sirius could have seeded the earth in a previous incarnation or from one of its etheric bodies.

Presently its life forms are much different than here on earth, for there are, “three major groups of Lives on Sirius, for there are there no kingdoms of nature, such as we possess.” Rays and Initiations, Page 418

There are a number of statements made by DK that cause some students to see Sirius as a heart center. For instance:

“The energies coming from the sun, Sirius, are related to the love-wisdom aspect…You have been told that the great White Lodge on Sirius finds its reflection and a mode of spiritual service and outlet in the great White Lodge of our planet, the Hierarchy.” Esoteric Astrology, Page 416

A heart center is on Ray Two, or the ray of Love-Wisdom, and the Hierarchy here on earth represents the heart center. This offers evidence that Sirius could be a heart center.

Another evidence cited is that Sirius “carries with it the principle of buddhi, of cosmic love” and transmits it to our Hierarchy here on the earth.” Rays and Initiations, Page 415

From DK’s statements we can definitely gather that the earth and Sirius are linked in a close relationship, and that Sirius is a transmitter of cosmic love. This does not mean though that it is a heart center. Just as the earth is on Ray Three and has a Hierarchy which is a heart center focused on Love-Wisdom, Sirius also would have a Hierarchy of similar purpose, even though it may be on a different ray and represent a different center.

DK gives indications that it may be polarized on another center not linked to Ray Two. Here he strongly links Sirius to the Seventh Ray, which governs Masonry:

“Masonry, as originally instituted far back in the very night of time and long ante-dating the Jewish dispensation, was organised under direct Sirian influence and modelled as far as possible on certain Sirian institutions.” Rays and Initiations, Page 418

“The first four initiations of the solar system correspond to the four “initiations of the Threshold,” prior to the first cosmic initiation. The fifth initiation corresponds to the first cosmic initiation, that of ‘entered apprentice’ in Masonry; and makes a Master an ‘entered apprentice’ of the Lodge on Sirius. The sixth initiation is analogous to the second degree in Masonry, whilst the seventh initiation makes the Adept a Master Mason of the Brotherhood on Sirius.” Initiation Human and Solar, Pages 17-18

Which center would Sirius represent then if it is on the Seventh Ray and not the second? We know that there are three centers where the Seventh Ray has strong influence. They are the base of the spine, the sacral and the throat. The question is which one of these represent the highest probability? Perhaps the answer lies in this quote:

“this great Being (A Cosmic Logos) includes within His focussed awareness the fields of expression of the Great Bear, the Pleiades and Sirius. They are to Him what the heart, the head and the throat centres are to the developed initiate.” Esoteric Astrology, Page 504

If the sequence is correct, DK is here linking Sirius to the throat center of a greater being. This makes sense as DK tells us that the throat center of disciples is mainly governed by the Seventh Ray (See Telepathy and the Etheric Vehicle, Page 137) Consider that Sirius is more advanced than many other star systems, just as a disciple is more advanced than rank and file humanity.

Another point is that just because our system and Sirius have a close relationship and are both centers in a greater being does not mean they are centers in the same Cosmic Logos. There are many Cosmic Logoi and they could be in two different ones.

Here he seems to indicate that our Cosmic Logos of seven solar systems may be different from the Logos of which Sirius is directly linked.

“As regards the influence of the seven solar systems, I should suggest (more I cannot do) that they are linked up astrologically with the constellations, the Great Bear, the Pleiades, and Sirius.” Esoteric Astrology, Page 29

It appears that our Cosmic Logos of seven systems is linked up to the Great Bear, the Pleiades, and Sirius, but they are not a part of our seven systems.

They are further differentiated here:

“The following is a tabulation showing some of the astrological relationships in connection with

  1. The constellation of the Great Bear.
  2. The Pleiades or the Seven Sisters.
  3. Sirius.
  4. The seven solar systems.” Esoteric Astrology, Page 33

Notice that DK lists our Cosmic Logos of seven solar systems in a different category from Sirius, indicating that it is separate from our local Cosmic Logos.

So, what kind of picture can we draw from all this? Basically this.

We are a part of a Cosmic Logos of seven main solar systems of which our Sun is the heart center. Sirius could be a part of another logos, though it is possible the wording is misleading. Sirius is very close to us and it would seem logical that it would belong to our group. Even if it were in our group it could still have numerous links to other constellations.

There are also greater systems of Cosmic Logoi which consist of seven constellations and evidently others higher consisting of much more. It is quite possible that our Sun and Sirius both belong to the same greater system which represents a great heart center. If we represent a heart center in a greater heart center, then this would explain why DK told us that our solar system in connection to Love-Wisdom is of significant interest to other great lives.

There are several other solar systems that some think may be centers in our immediate Cosmic Logos. One prospect is the giant red star Betelgeuse.

This is a very large red giant measuring over 700 times the diameter of our sun. If it were to replace our sun, it would engulf not only the earth and Mars but many of the asteroids. However, it has a low density and only weighs about 19 times that of our sun. Many suspect it will not be long before it goes supernova.

Concerning the path that advanced disciples take on the path of the Planetary Logoi, DK says this.

“As they work with the psyche or the soul of manifestation and are primarily concerned with the subjective side of life they are connected with that centre in the Body of the ONE ABOUT WHOM NAUGHT MAY BE SAID which is the source of conscious sensation. Therefore, they are vitalised from the solar plexus of that great Existence Whose all-embracing vitality holds our Logos, along with other solar Logoi, within the sphere of His consciousness.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 1253

So what is the solar plexus of this Cosmic Logos? A few paragraphs later he says this:

“Students may be surprised to know that the source of the peculiar cosmic energy which is found streaming towards our system along this cosmic Path is that of the sun Betelgeuse. This name is, however, a blind.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 1255

A blind is a statement that hides the real truth when it may do more harm than good to give it out. So it would seem that Betelgeuse veils a source which is the solar plexus of our Cosmic Logos.

This leaves us with uncertainty as to which system is the solar plexus of our Cosmic Logos. Realistically Betelgeuse is not likely to be in our local group as it is about 600 light years distant, and within that distance from us are almost two million other solar systems. The only reason Betelgeuse stands out is that it puts out 126,000 times the energy as our sun.

Another star that is suspected of being a center is Antares, a binary star. The main star is another red giant, almost as far away as Betelgeuse. The only reason we can see it is because it is 10,000 times as bright as the Sun. If you were in the vicinity of Antares you couldn’t even see our Sun with the naked eye.

Concerning this, Alice A. Bailey loosely associates it with sex indicating the sacral center.

“Taurus, which is the opposite of Scorpio, is the sign of desire expressed predominantly on the physical plane as sex. At the heart of Scorpio we find Antares, one of the four royal stars, a red star. Red is the color of desire and this is the reddest star in the heavens; it symbolizes that red of desire that underlies every manifestation of divine life.” Labours of Hercules, Page 153

Antares is a giant double star with significant influence, but we have no solid evidence that it is a part of our local group.

Another prospect is Polaris. This is another young giant compared to our sun, only about 70 million years old, but significantly smaller than Betelgeuse and Antares. This is a triple star system with the main sun being around fifty times the diameter, 5.4 times the mass and a whopping 2900 times brighter. The two other suns are a both a little larger than our sun.

It is also a significant distance – about 433 light years, and again, our sun would not be visible to the naked eye from there.

DK seems to link this to Ray One a well as associate it with the Great bear which is liked to the head center.

“…consider the two Pointers and the Pole Star. They are mysteriously connected with the three aspects of incarnated man – Spirit, soul and body. More than this it is not permitted to me to convey to you. I may, however, give you another hint. These three stars are embodiments of the three aspects of divine will. It is the three aspects of all expressions of divinity in manifestation which underlie the Science of Triangles.” Esoteric Astrology, Page 197

“You have therefore: Polaris – The Star of Direction – governing Shamballa.’ Esoteric Astrology, Page 198

You therefore have Polaris linked to the pointers of the Great Bear as well as Shamballa, both of which are linked to head centers by DK.

Finally, DK makes the study of this star more complex by adding this:

“It should nevertheless be pointed out that this star serves only as a blind for a constellation which lies behind,—a constellation which exists only in etheric matter.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 1262

I think we see here that DK is often referring more to energies transmitted by various centers more than the actual physical representations. Looking at it from this angle will aid with understanding.

Polaris and the etheric center behind it are associated with a head center, but most likely is not associated with our local group. On the other hand, in the body of a greater Cosmic Logos there is a definite link between this system and ours.

Another star mentioned by DK that is considered either a center, or part of one is Alcyone. This is a five-star system, one of the seven sisters in the Pleiades cluster in the constellation of Taurus.

The main star (Alcyone) is much hotter than our sun, glowing blue-white giving out over 2000 times more light than our system while being about ten times the size and six times the mass. It is another young star, less than 150 million years old and because of its makeup and intense heat will burn itself out long before our sun dies.

DK seems to associate Alcyone with Ray Three: He calls it the “’star of the Individual’ and sometimes the ‘star of intelligence.’ It was potently active during the previous solar system wherein the Third Person of the Trinity was peculiarly omnipotent and active, just as today the cosmic Christ, the Second Person of the Trinity, is peculiarly active in this solar system. The energies coming from Alcyone impregnated the substance of the universe with the quality of mind.” Esoteric Astrology, Page 200

That is a good description of Ray Three, which is associated with the throat center.

As far as individual star systems go, DK only identifies our sun as a specific center in our cosmic logos of seven systems. Concerning others, he only talks about the energies at play which could represent a single star system or an entire group, as is obvious with Polaris which is linked to the Great Bear.

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 6

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 6
The One About Whom Naught May Be Said

Finally we come to an examination of a most mysterious being of immense proportions which DK calls: “the Logos of our Solar Logos.” (Initiation Human and Solar, Page 162) Even Its name has mystery behind it as if it came from a Harry Potter story. One character there had the title of, “He Who Must Not Be Named.” DK tells us that the being who is higher than our Solar Logos is called “The One About Whom Naught May Be Said.”

The reason for this title is that this entity is so far in advance of the Masters, Shamballa or even the Solar Logos that understanding Its consciousness by us would be like a snail trying to understand human thinking. DK words it this way: “It is well to note that this Existence is termed “the One about Whom naught may be said”, not because of secrecy or mystery, but because all formulation of ideas about His life and purpose are impossible until one has completed the term of evolution in our solar system. Note, I say, our solar system, not just our planetary existence. Speculation about the Existence who, through His life, informs seven solar systems is wasted energy.” A Treatise on White Magic, Page 274

It is interesting though that even though It’s name implies that naught can be said, DK still manages to say a few things about Him. Really, we would expect nothing less from such a master teacher.

Here is what most Bailey students know for sure. The One About Whom Naught May Be Said, or The Cosmic Logos for short, is a life that occupies a body that is composed of at least seven solar systems. Just as the life of our Solar Logos occupies a body that consists of the Sun and the planets, this great life has incarnated into a much vaster expanse.

We know for sure there are seven centers in Its body just as there are seven centers in the entities within the body from the Solar Logos on down to the atom.

Concerning this cosmic logos, DK says that “one complete vital body forms the manifestation of this mighty cosmic Being. Vortices of force on the cosmic etheric plane form the etheric framework of seven solar systems in the same way that the bodies of the seven Heavenly Men are the etheric centres for a solar Logos, and as the seven centres in man (existing in etheric matter), are the animating electrical impulse of his life.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Pages 351-352

What is not clear to students is, what is it exactly that makes up those seven centers?

DK’s writings give us numerous interesting hints on this Being to contemplate, but they are far from presenting a complete picture and some of the terms used are obscure. He seems to use the words “constellation” and “solar system” interchangeably when they have quite different meanings. This is strange because he correctly defined the terms as follows:

“A solar system consists of a sun as the central focal point, with its series of attendant planets, which are held in magnetic rapport in their orbits around that sun.

“A constellation consists of two or more solar systems or series of suns with their attendant planets.” Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Pages 152-153

He usually follows this definition in writing about our solar system in relation to the Cosmic Logos. For instance a number of times he speaks of “seven solar systems (of which ours is but one)” Initiation Human and Solar, Page 160

Then he turns around and words it this way: “the seven constellations which form the body of manifestation of the One About Whom Naught May Be Said. Our solar system is one of these seven constellations. Esoteric Psychology.” Vol 1, Page 332

He does this same thing with Sirius, sometimes calling it a star and other times a constellation. (See Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 904)

Our solar system just consists of one sun and is not a constellation by any standard definition. Sirius does have a small white dwarf companion star, but no astronomer calls it a constellation for it is a part of the constellation Canis Major which has 11 major stars which includes Sirius.

.Some writers of the Ancient Wisdom sometimes used the word “constellation” in relation to a single orb. Here is an interesting explanation by a noted Theosophist as to why this may be the case:

“…when our own ancient esoteric philosophers spoke of the planets, spoke of Venus, or of Mars, for instance, as a “constellation,” they knew perfectly well what they were saying, and they did not speak in ignorance. Why did they speak of a planet as a constellation, which in ordinary astronomical terminology or parlance means a collection or a gathering of stars? Because every one of the visible planets we see is but one of seven, six of them invisible to our physical eyes, the seven forming a planetary chain. And, furthermore, these planetary chains are composed of seven distinct and separate globular bodies, forming, to the eye of the seer, a true constellation; and furthermore still, each one of these seven globes has fourteen different lokas (or rather seven lokas and seven talas) or “worlds” attached to it, making thus, counting all the seven globes, 49 worlds or planes or lokas and 49 talas.” Fundamentals of the Esoteric Philosophy, G. de Purucker, Chapter 34

If de Purucker is correct, then the ancients would not see one planet or sun, but a chain or a constellation of them, even though there may be only one in physical manifestation. Since DK has studied many of these manuscripts, he may just be in the habit referring to any solar body as a group or constellation.

Another possibility is that this was a simple mistake made by Alice A. Bailey in the course of transcribing DK’s thoughts. He had great praise for her, except in one area. He said that she did not have a good grasp or knowledge of science, and this caused some limitation in expressing himself in scientific terms.

Now there are certain people who have difficulty with scientific concepts and do not differentiate between a solar system, a constellation, a galaxy or the universe. I’ve read a number of New Age authors who get these mixed up. So it is possible that Mrs. Bailey is to blame here.

A third possibility is that DK used these incongruent terms on purpose to hint at a deeper meaning.

Such a hint may be seen in the way he describes the Cosmic Logos. Sometimes he describes it as seven solar systems as follows:

“the ONE ABOUT WHOM NAUGHT MAY BE SAID, Who ensouls the seven solar systems.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 409

“The Life which expresses Itself through seven solar systems. The One About Whom Naught May Be Said.” Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 155

‘through His life, informs seven solar systems” A Treatise on White Magic, Page 274

Then other times he defines It as seven constellations:

“…the seven constellations which form the body of manifestation of the One About Whom Naught May Be Said.” Esoteric Psychology.” Vol 1, Page 332

“Each of these Paths eventually leads to one or other of the six constellations which (with ours) form the seven centres in the body of the ONE ABOUT WHOM NAUGHT MAY BE SAID.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 1242

This seems to be confusing to many students who ask, “Is the Cosmic Logos composed of seven individual solar systems or seven constellations?”

The interesting answer is that both are correct. I submit to you that the title “The One About Whom Naught May Be Said” refers to just not one great being of high consciousness, but all great galactic beings that are beyond the comprehension of even the Masters. Thus, a being who inhabits seven solar systems as well as a greater one over seven constellations are both in this category. Even a life who inhabits over 200 billion stars in the Milky Way Galaxy would be A One About Whom Naught May Be Said.

On this note DK clearly acknowledges that there is more than one Cosmic Logos and even tells us that it is not known for sure to which Logos our solar system belongs:

“…until it is known which cosmic Logos recognises our solar Logos as a centre in His body, and which six other systems are affiliated with ours, it will not be possible to touch upon the systemic stage of manasic development.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 402

So we are told here that there are a number of Cosmic Logoi to which we could belong and we do not know all the details.

He makes it clear that there is more than one Cosmic Logos:

He writes of “those stupendous Existences Who hold a position in the cosmic Hierarchy similar to that of the “ONE ABOUT WHOM NAUGHT MAY BE SAID.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Pages 1117-1118

The phrase, “those stupendous Existences” verifies there is more than one.

The Solar logos must “attain to the consciousness of the centre in the body of the ONE ABOUT WHOM NOUGHT MAY BE SAID. This centre is formed by the sphere of influence of a cosmic Logos. In the body of a cosmic Logos, a solar Logos is a centre.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 292

Notice he uses the article “a” rather than “the,” indicating one of many.

“Therefore, we can do no more than accept the fact of the inconceivable magnitude of that EXISTENCE which is manifesting through seven solar systems, and the extension of this concept of Being to embrace the entire vault of the Heavens.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Pages 412-413

Here we see the idea of lives embracing a body such as our Cosmic Logos can be extended “to embrace the entire vault of the Heavens.”

He tells us that there are Cosmic Logoi greater than the one to which we belong:

Concerning the mystery of fire he speaks of:

“The mystery of the seven constellations.
The mystery of the ONE ABOVE THE LOGOS” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 269

“…beyond the above named constellations (in the body of the Cosmic Logos) is still another cosmic centre. The name of this centre is one of the secrets of the final initiation, the seventh.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 183

Here he clinches the idea of many Cosmic Beings referring to a cosmic Logos as a “cosmic wheel.”

‘A cosmic wheel, or a group of seven constellations … These cosmic wheels, according to the esoteric books, are divided into forty-nine groups, each comprising millions of septenary constellations.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 1085

Interesting to note is this is in harmony with the Bible which says:

“If thou see the oppressions of the poor, and violent judgements, and justice perverted, in the province, wonder not at this matter: for he that is high hath another higher, and there are others still higher than these.” Eccl 5:8 Douay Version

DK has to be referring to the center of the galaxy, the black hole, when he speaks of: “that central spot in the heavens around which our solar system revolves, and which is termed ‘the central spiritual sun.’” Initiation Human and Solar, Pg 130

Astronomers have concluded that the only place in the galaxy in which our solar system revolves is the center of the galaxy wherein lies a black hole. Just as the earth wobbles a bit on its axis, the solar system wobbles up and down and a little closer and then farther from the center of the galaxy as it makes an orbit that takes about 230 million years.

DK seems to indicate that there are revolutions around other centers, but this has to be in some other association or relationship other than the linear dense physical, as astronomers tell us that the Sun only revolves around the center of the galaxy.

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 5

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 5
The Solar Hierarchy

DK says this, “we must recognise that as mankind completes one unification after another, the ‘Heavenly Men’ on intuitional levels and on spiritual levels are completed, and in their turn go to the formation of the centres in the great ‘Heavenly Men’ of the solar system. These seven Heavenly Men, in Whose bodies each human Monad and each deva finds his place, form the seven centres in the body of the Logos. He, in His turn, forms the Heart centre (for God is Love) of a still greater Entity.” Initiation Human and Solar, Page 99

Above this planetary system is the sun and its planets. The great life who presides over the entire system is called the Solar Logos, who is much more advanced in spiritual evolution than is our planetary logos. Presiding over each of the planets is a planetary logos, some more advanced than Sanat Kumara, but all disciples of the Solar Logos.

The seven great centers of the solar system are the seven sacred planets, of which the earth is not yet one. Each of these is presided over by an advanced being, a planetary logos with his own centers of endeavor. These seven Logoi are mentioned in the Bible as “the seven Spirits which are before his throne.” Rev 1:4

These seven are the presiding entities over Vulcan (a hidden planet), Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune.

Their dominating rays are as follows: Vulcan – Ray 1, Mercury – Ray 4, Venus – Ray 5, Saturn – Ray 3, Jupiter – Ray 2, Uranus – Ray 7 and Neptune – Ray 6.

The non sacred planets are: Earth – Ray 3, Mars – Ray 6 and Pluto (now classified as a dwarf planet) – Ray 1

The planetary centers will vary in their astrological influence on individuals. The planets linked to various human centers will change as the individual evolves. Here is his tabulation given by DK linking the centers, rays and planets.

AVERAGE MAN – EXOTERIC PLANETS

  1. Head Centre – first ray – Pluto
  2. Ajna Centre – fifth ray – Venus
  3. Throat Centre – third ray – Earth
  4. Heart Centre – second ray – Sun
  5. Solar Plexus Centre – sixth ray – Mars
  6. Sacral Centre – seventh ray – Uranus
  7. Base of Spine – first ray – Pluto

DISCIPLES-INITIATES – ESOTERIC PLANETS

  1. Head Centre – first ray – Vulcan
  2. Ajna Centre – fifth ray – Venus
  3. Throat Centre – third ray – Saturn
  4. Heart Centre – second ray – Jupiter
  5. Solar plexus Centre – sixth ray – Neptune
  6. Sacral Centre – seventh ray – Uranus
  7. Base of Spine – first ray – Pluto

(Esoteric Astrology, Page 517)

The centers listed above tell us of links to humans at two different stages but may not reflect the planet’s position in the body of the Solar Logos, though they do provide some hints.

Then, from a higher perspective of the Logos, he gives different associations, though not a complete list.

For instance, he links Mercury of the Fourth Ray (which was left out of the above tabulation) to the ajna center. (Esoteric Healing, Page 151) Here he describes the mission of this center: “Mercury, the Messenger of the Gods (that is, of the Hierarchy of souls), carries always the message of love and sets up an unbreakable inter-relation between the two great planetary centres, that of the Hierarchy and that of Humanity.” Destiny of the Nations, Page 139

He tells us of another link when Mercury forms a triangle with the Earth and Mars. In this situation it and Mars are linked to the center at the base of the spine. (Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 181)

Representing the crown center is most likely a major first ray source, Vulcan, a hidden planet, though Pluto of lesser influence is on this same ray. Concerning Vulcan he writes: “There is consequently only one planet, Vulcan, which is distinctly and purely first ray energy.” Esoteric Astrology, Page 280

Some Theosophists maintain that Vulcan was visible in ancient times but because of its increased vibration has become largely invisible today, though some have reported sighting when transiting the sun. They maintain that Vulcan is only visible on those rare occasions where it transits, or moves over the direct area occupied by the sun.

Then at times DK associates it directly with the sun, or perhaps a part of the sun. He says:

“The light of Vulcan and the light of the Sun are one light … Vulcan is a substitute for the Sun; it is spoken of sometimes as being veiled by the Sun and at others it stands for the Sun itself. It stands between the man and the Sun … Esoterically – the heart of the Sun.” Esoteric Astrology, Pages 132 & 393

The throat center as taught by DK is consistently dominated by Saturn with the earth playing a supporting role as both planets are on Ray Three – the main ray used by the throat. He plainly says this:

“Saturn corresponds to the throat centre, or to the creative activity of the third aspect.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 182

In his explanation of centers he, not surprisingly, associates the Sun and Jupiter (both on Ray Two) with the heart center for humans. But then, apparently from the view of the Logos, he says this:

“Venus corresponds to the heart centre in the body logoic, and has an inter-relationship therefore with all the other centres in the solar system wherein the heart aspect is the one of greater prominence.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 182

This was a surprise since Venus is on Ray Five and associated with the ajna center in relation to humanity. In addition, the odd rays of 1-3-5-7 are usually seen as in opposition to rays 2-4-6, similar to male contrasted to female. But he says that the Logos of Venus is on the Sixth Ray (Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 595) so this adds to the strength of the 2-4-6 line.

In addition, he says this:

“Venus stands for the emergence of the love principle through the directing power of the mind.” Esoteric Astrology, Pages 126-127

He also speaks of a related triangle of “the Sun (second ray), Jupiter (second ray) and Venus (fifth ray).” Esoteric Astrology, Page 301

DK tells us that Venus is far ahead of us in spiritual evolution and is in its fifth round while we are in the fourth. This would mean that its inhabitants live in an etheric sphere invisible to us. Since the Sun itself is on Ray Two, representing heart energy, then it makes sense that an advanced planet such as Venus would harmonize with its Source.

The only other sacred planet that we can be fairly sure of its location is Neptune. Not only does he associate it with the Solar Plexus in the list of esoteric planets recently noted, but also does this in Esoteric Healing, Page 151. In addition, Neptune is on Ray six and this is a prime ray influence of that center. A secondary influence for this center would be Mars, also on Ray Six, similar to how Earth is a secondary influence with Saturn for the throat center.

This leaves us with Uranus and Jupiter and the base and sacral center. This makes it difficult to decide, as both of these centers work with Ray Seven to which Uranus belongs. Ray Seven, though, is closely linked to the magic of physical creation, so I think we have to go with the sacral center which creates physical form.

This leaves the Base of the Spine, the foundation center for Jupiter. Jupiter is strongly linked to the Sun and Solar Logos, the source of life making a good fit to place Jupiter as being this center.

That said, we can make the following list for the centers in the solar logoic body:

Vulcan – Crown
Mercury – Ajna
Venus – Heart
Jupiter – Base of Spine
Saturn/Earth – Throat
Uranus – Sacral
Neptune/Mars – Solar Plexus

Lower Quaternary and the Spiritual Triad

Another interesting correspondence to consider is that of the lower quaternary and spiritual triad. These not only exist in relation to human beings but also in the Logoic body.

DK tells us that the lower quaternary in the human is:

“The fourfold lower self, or man, in the three worlds. There are various divisions of this, but perhaps for our purpose the best is to enumerate the four as follows:

  1. Lower mind.
  2. Emotional or kamic body.
  3. Prana, or the Life Principle.
  4. The etheric body, or the highest division of the twofold physical body.” Initiation Human and Solar, Page 224

On the other hand, the spiritual triad is the higher part of ourselves existing on the higher planes of atma-buddhi-manas, with the manas being the higher apart of the mental plane.

The goal of the disciple is to build a bridge, called the antahkarana, which links the higher with the lower.

So we have seven sacred planets corresponding to the 4+3. Which planets, then, are linked to the lower quaternary and spiritual triad?

DK clearly tells us this about the lower quaternary:

“The Lord of Venus holds place in the logoic quaternary, as does the Lord of Earth.

“[Note* The four schemes which form the logoic Quaternary ] will merge into their synthesising scheme, that of Saturn, while Venus and Mercury will merge into Uranus and Neptune.]” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 300

Since the earth is not a sacred planet, it most likely would represent the lower quaternary in connection with Saturn, which is also on Ray Three and a sacred planet. We are also told in the above quote that the Earth Scheme will eventually merge with Saturn. Since Venus is a sacred planet, it could comprise the whole of its position.

He names one more planet involved in the quaternary which is Mercury. This harmonizes with this statement where he links Earth, Venus and Mercury to three of the legs of the quaternary:

(1) The Earth – planetary vital body.
(2) Venus – planetary astral vehicle, or Kama-manas.
(3) Mercury – planetary mind.” Esoteric Astrology, Page 362

Typical of him as a teacher he leaves out a crucial part, perhaps expecting students to solve it themselves. The missing link is the planet that represents prana, or the life principle.

My best guess is this would be represented by Neptune linked to Mars. They are both on the sixth ray, which is closely linked to the lower quaternary.

DK does not name the planets representing the Spiritual Triad, but if we are correct so far, the sacred planets not in the Lower Quaternary would be in the Spiritual Triad. These planets are Vulcan (linked with Pluto), Jupiter and Uranus.

It is interesting that the most advanced Logoi can be in the Lower Quaternary instead of the Spiritual Triad, as Venus, representing the astral part of the Quaternary, has a very advanced Logos.

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 4

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 4
The Centers of the Centers

In addition to there being seven centers in the planet itself, each of those have seven centers. For instance, we have discussed the seven centers of the fourth kingdom, humanity, which are represented as seven cities with two yet to materialize as we reach a higher stage of evolution.

Let us see what we can discover about the centers of these kingdoms.

Concerning the mineral, DK says very little but does give a hint:

“The mineral kingdom is responsive to that type of energy which is the lowest aspect of fire, of those internal furnaces which exert an influence upon the elements in the mineral world, and which resolve these atomic lives into a gradual series of ever-higher types of mineral energy. For instance, the type of energy which plays upon iron ore, or which produces tin, is emanated from a different centre in the body of the Entity informing the mineral kingdom to that which converts the elements into those wondrous jewels, the diamond, the sapphire, the emerald or the ruby. Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 1071

So here we are told that there is a great entity who informs the mineral kingdom of this planet, and apparently the heavy metals like tin and iron form a center as well as one that informs the jewels, which would probably include crystals. He doesn’t say which center these belong to, so let us put forth our best estimate.

The base of the spine is the foundation of life, so that may be the center of the planet. The sacral center creates living forms, so that would be outer part of the planet including the top soil or the top layer of the planet from which living things grow. The solar plexus would be the oceans, for water is a symbol of emotion. The heart would include all elements that are not metallic or gaseous. The throat would be the metals – the source of many creative forms by humans. The ajna center equates to precious jewels and crystals, and finally, the crown center would be the atmosphere and all other gasses. The atmosphere is above the physical earth as is the crown center above the physical body.

Note that we are including the atmosphere and oceans in with the mineral kingdom as being inorganic. They would therefore belong to the first kingdom, the mineral, rather than the vegetable or another kingdom.

DK indicates that the various centers are not set in stone, but may vary according to consciousness and perspective.

For instance, we could arrange this kingdom into the seven groups of elements in the periodic table, each having a different number of electron shells.

Concerning the divisions of the kingdoms DK says this:

“It will be clear that each of the kingdoms—elemental, mineral, vegetable, and animal as well as the human—is divided into seven primary types or rays.” Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 164

He doesn’t list these divisions for the vegetable and animal, but does make this statement on a part of the vegetable kingdom:

Ray II is the beneficent influence, expressing itself through the cereals and flowers.

Ray IV is the life quality, expressing itself through the grasses and the smaller forms of vegetable life,— those which provide the “green carpet whereon the angels dance”. Psychology, Vol 1, Page 239

The student can only guess at other divisions. Trees would be a definite one of the seven major divisions.

Again, with the animal kingdom, he does not list the centers or divisions, but does give us some information:

“…for instance, the rapport being established between humanity and the domesticated animals. These animals are to their own kingdom what the New Group of World Servers is to humanity.” Telepathy and the Etheric Vehicle, Page 68

Earlier we learned that the New Group of World Servers represented an aspect of the ajna center of the planet, so we have an indication here that domestic animals as a whole represent that center within their own kingdom.

In addition, he does give some specific rays in connection to animals:

“Elephants are upon the first ray; dogs are expressions of the second ray; the cat is a third ray life manifestation, and the horse is sixth ray.” Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 260

This would indicate the elephants are linked to the head center of the animal kingdom (First Ray), dogs; the heart (Second Ray), Cats – the throat (Third Ray), and horses – the solar plexus (Sixth Ray). A number of interesting divisions can be made when all life associated with this kingdom are considered, such as the fish, insects and other animals not mentioned.

We have covered the seven human centers, noting five current cities and two centers to later appear, but in addition, the number seven repeats numerous times with us. For instance, the Ancient Wisdom teaches that during our evolution here there will be a total of seven root races. We are in the fifth now with two more to come. In addition, there are the seven continents which are: Asia, Africa, Europe, North America, South America, Australia and Antarctica. Then we have the seven seas, which are the Arctic Ocean, the North Atlantic Ocean, the South Atlantic Ocean, the Indian Ocean, the North Pacific Ocean, the South Pacific Ocean and the Southern (or Antarctic) Ocean.

Then, among humanity itself, there are seven divisions according to ray type. Each person is dominated by one ray above the others.

Those on Ray One gravitate to politics and positions of power and leadership.

Ray Two people have a strong desire to share and serve and are often in some type of teaching position.

Ray Three people are practical, good thinkers and are often found in business, manufacturing, sports and in creating organizations.

Those seeking creativity, harmony and unity are often on the fourth ray.

Scientists and logical concrete thinkers are influenced by the fifth ray.

The sixth ray has dominated for the past two thousand years during the age of Pisces which is now passing. Idealists, devotees and religious people are found on this ray.

The seventh ray is called the Ray of Ceremonial Law, Magic or Order. Those who are attracted to law and order, efficient business practices and ceremony, such as the Masons, are under this ray.

There is no single physical location for those on the different rays, as the divisions have more to do with energy than location.

The fifth kingdom representing Ray Two and the heart center of the planet is usually referred to as the Spiritual Hierarchy. These are those who have passed beyond the regular human stage in consciousness and have mastered human problems and are often called Masters of Wisdom. Djwhal Khul relates to us how these great lives are organized according to the seven rays. He thus gives out the positions of the Christ and Twelve Masters.

Under Christ, also on Ray Two, is a European Master, Koot Hoomi, and Djwhal Khul, the master who communicated with Alice A. Bailey.

The master heading up Ray One is called Vaivasvata Manu. Under him on this ray is the Master Jupiter and Morya.

The title for the head of Ray Three is called the Mahachohan or the Lord of Civilization. This is currently headed by the Master Rakoczi, formerly known as Saint Germain.

Under him is a Venetian Master, also on Ray Three.

On Ray Four is The Master Serapis and Ray Five is Hilarion, also known earlier as Paul of Tarsus. Ray Six is Jesus, who was the one who received the Christ at baptism. Ray Seven was presided over by Rakoczi but he moved up in position to head Ray Three, the Lord of Civilization. His replacement has not been identified.

The lower part of the ajna center of the planet are the New Group of World Servers in their seven divisions according to ray type previously mentioned.

The seventh center is Shamballa presided over by the Planetary Logos, the Ancient of Days – Sanat Kumara. The seven centers concerning this are represented by the seven Kumaras at the head. H.P. Blavatsky gave out the names as follows:

“The Exoteric four are: Sanat-Kumara, Sananda, Sanaka, and Sanatana; and the esoteric three are: Sana, Kapila, and Sanat-sujata.” Secret Doctrine Vol 1, Page 457

DK further clarifies:

“It has been said that in the head of every man are seven centres of force, which are linked to the other centres in the body, and through which the force of the Ego is spread and circulated, thus working out the plan. Sanat Kumara, with the six other Kumaras, hold a similar position. These central seven are as the seven head centres to the body corporate. They are the directing agents and the transmitters of the energy, force, purpose, and will of the Planetary Logos on His own plane.” Initiation Human and Solar, Page 30

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 3

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 3
The Seven Kingdoms

Next, for the planet as a whole, we have a further correspondence to the seven human centers or chakras. These are the seven kingdoms here on the planet, of which the obvious four are the mineral, vegetable, animal and human. Seeking exact correspondences that apply in all circumstances is impossible as they shift somewhat according to the evolution of the seeker, humanity and the viewpoint taken by the observer. In speaking of the relationship of the kingdoms to the centers, DK says this:

“These relationships prove each other but only when seen in relation to the greater cycle. Humanity was at one time the correspondence to the planetary solar plexus and some day will shift the focus of its receptivity to the planetary heart centre; when this takes place, the Hierarchy will shift its focus of receptivity into the sphere of influence of Shamballa.” Esoteric Astrology, Pages 454-455

So then, the human kingdom, which is usually related to the throat center, was once related to the solar plexus, and, as it progresses, it will become the heart center.

What is consistent is that there will always be seven higher centers which correspond to the seven lower, though their relation to each other may shift for a number of reasons. For instance, he tells us that they will be viewed differently when “expansions of consciousness” occur. (Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 221)

That said, let us look at our centers and see how they relate to the centers of the planet, or the planetary logos.

Center one, the Base of the Spine – The Mineral.

The mineral kingdom corresponds to the adrenals and rays 7 and 1. This is usually associated with the base of the spine as DK notes in Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 221. He notes that this is true when looking at “the seven kingdoms as a whole…” which would be from the view of the Logos. However a page earlier he makes different links when related to the human angle, and relates the mineral center to the sacral as well as the base center. Apparently, the different kingdoms can play different roles depending on whether we are looking at them through the viewpoint of humanity, the Hierarchy or Shamballa.

He also associates the mineral center with the spleen, which adds additional complexity. (Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 1071)

Students can see why he associates it with the spleen, for he says this center governs “the current of physical vitality or life” of the body relating it to the base of the spine, which is the foundation of the life force.

Although he associates the mineral kingdom in different circumstances with both the sacral and base centers he tells us that this is oddly shared by “the Forces of Materialism.

“The mineral kingdom and the Forces of Materialism do not really coincide today, for the one works through the sacral centre at this time, and the other through the centre at the base of the spine.” Externalization of the Hierarchy, Page 92

The second main kingdom is the vegetable. It would be natural to assume that since this is the second kingdom it would be most closely linked to the second center, the sacral governing sex, but DK does not make this link. One reason would be that reproduction in the vegetable kingdom does not require the division of the sexes as in the animal and human.

The lowest center linked to the vegetable is the third center up – the solar plexus and the sixth ray. (Esoteric Astrology, Page 456; Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Pg 1071)

This makes sense, as this center is associated with our emotions and idealism. The emotions are indeed stirred by beautiful flowers, ancient trees and many other wonders of that kingdom which have reached an idealistic perfection in evolution.

Next, DK associates this center with the heart and Ray Two of Love Wisdom. (Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 221) This ray is associated with magnetism, and the vegetable kingdom does indeed draw us with magnetic force created by its beauty, perfumes and source of food.

Finally, he associates this center with the throat center and the lungs. (A Treatise on White Magic, Pg 360 and Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 220) He does not explain why, but perhaps it is because the throat is associated with creation, and the vegetable kingdom highlights creation from Divine Intelligence.

In addition, he makes an unusual association of the vegetable kingdom with the fourth ray, but qualifies it saying that this ray is identified with the great being who ensouls that kingdom. (Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 120) The fourth ray is linked to the ajna and the base centers so in some circumstances there must be a link to one or both of these.

The third kingdom on the planet is the animal, and it is usually associated with the corresponding third center – the solar plexus. (See Externalization of the Hierarchy, Page 92; also Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Pages 220-221, 413)

Concerning this he says, “The animal uses the solar plexus in the same way that a man uses the brain.” (Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 287) Then he tells us that this sixth ray connection through the solar plexus especially applies to domestic animals, and causes them to have such a strong devotion to their masters unlike the wild animals. (Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 218)

In that same reference he indicates that the other animals lean strongly on the third ray connected with the throat center. He makes two specific references equating the animal kingdom with the throat center because of their instinct, especially of the wild animals. (See Esoteric Astrology, Page 455 and Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Pg 1071)

He adds further complication by relating the animal kingdom to the heart: “Man, the brain of nature; the animals, the expression of the heart.” Indeed, if we look at it from the perspective of humanity being the brain, then the heart makes sense for the animals.

Finally, he adds more complexity to the animal kingdom by linking it to the fifth ray (Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 162) but doesn’t give any explanation as to why he does so. Perhaps it is because the fifth ray is an attribute of the third ray linked to animal instinct. The fifth ray is linked to the ajna and sacral centers, indicating they may also have a link to the animal kingdom.

Finally, we come to the last visible center that is universally acknowledged to exist, which is the fourth kingdom of nature – us – humanity.

The human kingdom is generally recognized as being the throat center of the planet, which is usually governed by the Third Ray of Active Intelligence. Here is just one quote: “The great centre which we call Humanity is predominantly governed by the third Ray of Active Intelligence. This ray energy arrives at the throat centre via the head and the heart centres.” Telepathy and the Etheric Vehicle, Page 135

He repeats this link of humanity to the throat center and third ray a number of places, such as Esoteric Healing, Page 148, Destiny of the Nations, Page 23, Externalisation of the Hierarchy, Page 107 and Rays and Initiations, page 551.

He has repeated this enough that many students always link humanity with the throat center and ray three, but again the association is not black and white in all circumstances, as he links humanity to other centers and rays depending on the relationship involved.

We can see though why the throat center and third ray is the most common linkage, for the throat governs creativity and the third ray represents the adaptability of matter through the application of intelligence. Humanity is indeed the strongest creative material force on the planet who alters and manipulates substance to its desire through intelligent effort. Some think we are doing more harm than good, but DK assures us that humanity will learn its lessons and become a benevolent force in the end. He calls us “The Centre where the intelligence of God is producing the evolutionary process.” Telepathy and the Etheric Vehicle, Page 159

When linking humanity with the throat center he usually associates them with the third ray, but in one instance he links us with the fourth ray because of our “quality of acquisitiveness” and “conflict” that manifests through us. (Externalization of the Hierarchy, Page 92)

Then, in other points of reference, he links humanity to the ajna center while placing the animal kingdom in the throat. (see Esoteric Astrology, Pages 452- 455) Here he links them with the fifth ray instead of the third, which makes sense because the third ray is sometimes linked to this center between the eyebrows. We’ll talk more about this link when we discuss the sixth kingdom.

Again, DK throws in more complexity by associating the human kingdom with the heart center (Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Pg 1071), but this seems to be when relating us to only the lower three kingdoms.

Then he somewhat surprisingly links us with the sacral center (Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 221), but even this makes sense when you consider the sacral governs physical creation, and humanity is definitely creating many new physical forms. The sacral is also closely linked to the throat, but creates at a lower level.

There are three planetary centers above humanity not generally recognized by orthodox thinking. The first of these is the Spiritual Hierarchy, normally referred to as the Fifth Kingdom, a step above humanity, the fourth.

DK consistently refers to this kingdom as the heart center of the planet ruled by Ray Two of Love Wisdom.. The dominance of Ray Two makes this center one of great importance as this ray sets the tone for the whole solar system and the goal of our spiritual evolution during this system of creation.

He makes one exception, though, and tells us that from the view of one approaching the first initiation, the fifth kingdom, or the Hierarchy, should be seen as the throat center instead of the heart, with the human seen as the sacral and the animal related to the heart center. (Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 221)

He gives no further explanation for this unusual relationship but leaves it up to disciples to discern.

We’ll save the mysterious sixth kingdom for last and go major seventh corresponding to the crown center at the top of the head. This center has been given the name Shamballa. Even though the name can be traced back to the ancient Sanskrit, it is probably not the one used by its inhabitants.

As for its physical location, legend has it that Shamballa exists somewhere between the Himalaya Mountains and the Gobi Desert. DK doesn’t give an exact location, but does say “the location of Shamballa will be one of the latest etheric sacred spots to be revealed as it exists in the matter of the second ether.”      Initiation Human and Solar, Page 33

He also tells us that in relation to present humanity it is more of a state of consciousness than a physical location, though in the reference above he does hint at an actual location in time and space.

The head of Shamballa is the Lord of the World, Sanat Kumara, called in the Bible The Ancient of Days, also after the order of Melchizedek. Concerning him, DK says: “Sanat Kumara and His Pupils are in physical form, but have not taken dense physical bodies. They work on the vital etheric levels, and dwell in etheric bodies. Shamballa, where They dwell, exists in physical matter as do the Kumaras, but it is matter of the higher ethers of the physical plane, and only when man has developed etheric vision will the mystery lying beyond the Himalayas be revealed.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 753

The dominate center that is associated with Shamballa is the crown center along with Ray One of Will-Power-Purpose, though he also loosely links it to the heart and Ray Two (Initiation Human and Solar, Page 130) as well as the Base of the Spine and most probably Ray Seven. (Rays and Initiations, Page 367)

Shamballa receives from the Solar Logos who receives from extra planetary sources, and thus does divine intelligence flow down from on high to Shamballa to the Hierarchy and finally to humanity.

The sixth planetary center is somewhat mysterious, for when DK does list the centers he either leaves this center out or does not clearly identify it. Fortunately, he has identified it in the written text.

Before we examine the planetary correspondence, let us take a look at that to which it must correspond. DK says this:

“There is a downflow of energy from the ajna centre to the heart from the soul, just in so far as the aspirant is in touch with his soul. This leads to … The evocation of the heart centre in the head.” Esoteric Healing, Page 169

“The Ajna Centre (the centre between the eyebrows) works in connection with the three major centres but mainly, at this stage of human development, as the distributor of soul force and of spiritual energy as received from the heart and throat centres.” Telepathy and the Etheric Vehicle, Page 191

An active interplay, once established between the ajna centre and the throat centre, produces a creative life and a manifested expression of the divine idea on the part of the initiate. Esoteric Healing, Page 147

We can take from this then that the ajna center acts as a bridge, or channel, for the energy flow between the three major centers, the heart, the throat and the crown.

Using the Law of Correspondences we can assume that the ajna center for the planet would do something similar.

It is interesting that the ajna center for the planet involves an assortment of entities. DK writes about those representing the lowest level.

“The pioneers of the human family, the scientists, thinkers and artists constitute the pituitary body.” A Treatise on White Magic, Page 277

The pituitary gland is the most material manifestation of the ajna center and corresponds to the advanced thinkers of humanity. These thinkers contemplate and pick up impressions and ideas from the Hierarchy or the soul (heart center), and transmit them to humanity – the planetary throat center.

A step above the thinkers are disciples of the world dedicated to bringing additional light and spiritual power to humanity.

Whereas the thinkers are identified with the material externalization of this center, this group is directly connected to the ajna center of the planet:

The ajna centre of the Lord of the World is just beginning to express itself in a recognisable manner through the New Group of World Servers. This intermediate group—between the Hierarchy and Humanity—is a carrier of the energy which makes the Plan possible (the Plan of which the Hierarchy is the custodian). This Plan implements the Purpose, and later, when the New Group of World Servers is organised and is recognised as a living organism, it will definitely receive energy from Shamballa in a direct reception, via the Hierarchy. Rays and Initiations, Page 368

Here we are told quite plainly that The New Group of World Servers correspond to the ajna center. These are dedicated spiritual teachers and servants who catch a glimpse of the plan as transmitted by the Hierarchy and play a part in implementing it. Therefore, this group and the thinkers pick up impressions from the planetary heart center (the Hierarchy) and transmit it to the throat (humanity).

The correspondence does not end here as there are higher levels of beings who function as transmitters of spiritual energy and intelligence between kingdoms.

The next higher level are called the Nirmanakayas. These are advanced spiritual entities, such as the Buddha, who have achieved at least the sixth initiation and whose consciousness extends beyond the Hierarchy (the heart center) into Shamballa (the head center). Just as advanced humans bring spiritual intelligence from a higher level to humanity, these Nirmanakayas bring down power and intelligence from the head to the heart, or Shamballa to the Hierarchy. Concerning them DK says;

“…the Agents of the Plan are impressed from Shamballa, via the Nirmanakayas; the process is then repeated, and advanced humanity become the recipients, the sensitive recipients, of the Plan as transmitted to them by the impressing Agents, the Masters, working through the New Group of World Servers. This group is the lower correspondence of the Nirmanakayas, the recipients of impression from Shamballa.” Telepathy and the Etheric Vehicle, Pages 121-122

So we are told here that the New Group of World Servers and the Nirmanakayas fit in with the Law of Correspondences and provide the same type of service, but on different levels.

Then there is one more even higher group linked to the function of the ajna center for the planet. DK alludes to them here:

“These Servers (New Group of World Servers) are to humanity what the Buddhas of Activity are to Shamballa, and the group of divine Contemplatives (the Nirmanakayas) are to the Hierarchy. ” Telepathy and the Etheric Vehicle, Page 45

Here he places three groups as performing similar functions but on different levels. They are the New Group of World Servers, the Nirmanakayas and the Buddhas of Activity.

These Buddhas are three very advanced entities who counsel the Planetary Logos. Just as the New Group of World Servers and the Nirmanakayas transmit intelligence between kingdoms on this planet, the Buddhas of Activity do the same thing, but between solar systems.

We thus conclude that the ajna center of the planet is composed of four groups: (1) advanced thinkers (2) the New Group of World Servers, (3) the Nirmanakayas and (4) the Buddhas of Activity.

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 2

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 2
The Greater Lives

We have thus briefly covered the seven major centers and their accompanying rays for the human body. Now there are many other lesser centers, but these are the major ones taught in the Ancient Wisdom. DK does not talk about how they play out in the microcosmic lives but does correspond them to greater lives than the individual human.

These greater lives include groups, nations, humanity as a whole, the planet, other planets, the solar system and, last of all, the Cosmic Logos, or The One About Whom Naught May Be Said, which consists of at least seven solar systems. Beyond this great life little is said by DK. Unlike many others, he doesn’t speak of a galactic or Universal Logos, for understanding the Cosmic Logos seems to be more than we can handle in our present state of consciousness.

Concerning the centers of nations DK says this:

“Nations, for instance, have seven centres, as have all forms of existence from the human and animal upwards, and it is an interesting study to discover these centres and note the type of energy which flows through them. In connection with the United States of America, Chicago is the solar plexus centre, whilst New York is the throat centre and Washington the head centre. The heart centre is Los Angeles. The heart centre of Germany is Munich, and its head centre is Nuremberg, whilst Berlin is the throat centre. London is, of course, the heart centre for Great Britain (and temporarily it is also the head centre, though this will not always be the case), whilst Ottawa is the throat centre and Sydney is the solar plexus centre of the British Empire.” Externalization of the Hierarchy, Page 85

The United States is an interesting country in which to analyze the centers. It is interesting that he gives us an incomplete list, which is:

Head – Washington DC
Throat – New York
Heart – Los Angeles
Solar Plexus- Chicago

Note that he leaves out the ajna, sacral and base centers.

In the day he wrote this. the sacral center surely would have been Detroit since it was the main center of physical creation – manufacturing most of the cars driven at that time. Now that has changed and the prime source of our most used products is the Silicon Valley region in the San Francisco and surrounding region. This includes many of our computer related products, solar panels and electric vehicles.

In DK’s day, the base of the spine would have most likely been Philadelphia, for there was laid the foundation of life for this country. That, however, may have changed to Seattle today, as focus has shifted away from nationalism to just living the abundant material life. Thanks to Microsoft the foundation was laid for our computerized world, and there we also have Amazon which has become the lifeblood of most every consumer product produced.

So, where would be the ajna center, the eye of spiritual vision? He did not name one because such a place does not yet exist, so he just lumped the head as a whole into one center at Washington DC. There are a number locations which would like the title of our spiritual light. Many think the Vatican or Jerusalem are good prospects for the planet as a whole, but few enlightened souls look in their direction for higher consciousness. In the United States, Salt Lake City is the only major city built and headquartered by a religion, but few outside the body of LDS true believers sense much inspiration coming from there.

As it is, Washington DC, imperfect as it is, represents both centers. This is evidenced by the all-seeing eye (representing the third eye – the ajna center) on the reverse of the Great Seal of the United States which is printed on our dollar bills.

The United States has attempted to shine greater light on freedom and democracy to the world, though with imperfect results. It is also the source of much of the world’s new ideas of spiritual thinking from new religions to many New Age movements.

Unfortunately, there is no separate city of lights where the ideals and inhabitants are enlightened enough to be a light unto the world. Such a place will manifest in the not-too-distant future and then we shall live in a world where there is an open third eye, a center to guide the world in the ways of Spirit, rather than the material side of life.

Concerning humanity as a whole, DK tells us there are five cities that represent active centers of power for humanity. The number is five because we are in the fifth rootrace. When the next race manifests, a center in Africa will develop and finally, when the seventh and final rootrace appears, a seventh center will be seen in Australia says DK.

Currently, the five centers with their personality and soul rays, plus their astrological signs are:

City – Soul – Personality – Sign

  1. London – 5th – 7th – Gemini.
  2. New York – 2nd – 3rd – Cancer.
  3. Tokyo – 6th – 4th – Cancer.
  4. Geneva – 1st – 2nd – Leo.
  5. Darjeeling – 2nd – 5th – Scorpio

Esoteric Astrology, Page 458

Concerning these, he says, “The five cities which are the exoteric expression of the esoteric centre of force and through which the Hierarchy and Shamballa are seeking to work are the correspondence in the planetary body to the four centres up the spine and the ajna centre in the body of humanity and of individual man.” Esoteric Astrology, Page 528

He doesn’t tell us which cities are with the specific five centers mentioned, but the rays given as well as their order listed will supply some hints.
