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
- The constellation of the Great Bear.
- The Pleiades or the Seven Sisters.
- 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.
