A Treatise on Cosmic Fire - Section Two - Division E - Motion on the Plane of Mind
The Love Wisdom Petals

The streams of energy playing upon and through this second tier of petals closely resemble those already dealt with, but originate in differing groups of lives (lunar and solar).

a. The lowest form of energy, reaching this circle, emanates from the lower self, via the astral permanent atom, and the second petal of the outer tier. It is transmuted astral energy; it is more powerful than its correspondence in the first tier, owing to the inherent nature of the astral body, and the fact that it is augmented by the energy of the outer tier itself. This is one of the factors which brings about the more rapid progress made towards the close of the evolutionary period. There are certain streams of force in the evolution of the Monad which might be regarded as embodying for it the line of least resistance and they are specifically, beginning at the lowest:

  1. Emanations from the vegetable kingdom.
  2. Astral energy.
  3. The energy of the second circle of petals.
  4. Buddhic force.
  5. The activity of the second Logos, planetary or solar.

This is, of course, only true of this solar system, being the system of regenerative love.

b. Another form of influencing energy originates in the inner circle of petals, which is the focal point [1115] of force for the Monad, considered as atma. It must be pointed out that the streams of force which form the "petals of will" have a dynamic activity and (when in action) produce very rapid unfoldment. It is the inner of the two types of force; their mutual interplay provides the necessary stimulus, and results in the opening of the bud and the revelation of the Jewel.

The other types of energy find their correspondence with those already enumerated but I seek only to mention one of them, - that one which reaches the second tier of love petals, via the buddhic permanent atom. The energy thus originating is of a peculiarly interesting kind being the basic energy of all manifestation, and the sum total of the forces which form the sevenfold heart of the physical sun, and which are located within its sheltering luminosity. They in their turn are transmitters of the life-impulses from the heart of the central Spiritual Sun, so that we have a direct graded chain of transmitting energies.

  1. The Heart of the central Spiritual Sun.
  2. The sevenfold heart of the physical Sun.
  3. The buddhic devas
    to
  4. The central circle of petals.
  5. The astral permanent atom.
  6. The heart center within the Head.
  7. The heart center.

This buddhic energy is the sumtotal of the life force of Vishnu or the Son, Who is the transmitter and representative of a still greater cosmic Deity.

All the above serves to demonstrate the oneness of the tiniest unit with the one great informing Life, and shows the integral beauty of the scheme. The life of the greatest cosmic Lord of Love pulsates in infinitesimal degree [1116] in the heart of His tiniest reflection, and for this reason the atom man can likewise say "I too am God; His Life is mine."
