Methods of Individualisation of the Soul . by Arthur E. Powell . with comments by Alice B. Clagett

Compiled and published on 30 November 2013; published on 18 December 2017; revised

Dear Ones,

These are quotes from Arthur E. Powell’s Theosophical compilations regarding the various methods through which a house pet can individualise. Theosophy states that animals have group-souls. All lions, for instance, share but one group-soul. (1)

But according to Theosophy, when an animal has a long association with a human being, it can acquire an individual Soul. This process is termed individualisation, or in more modern spelling, individualization

Here are the quotes from “The Causal Body and the Ego,” by Arthur E. Powell, that describe the process of individualization …

“It was said in the preceding chapter that the effort, resulting from which individualisation, takes place, must be made from below, i.e.., by the animal. This effort may take place in one of three distinct ways, and so exercise a very far-eaching effect on the whole future life of the entity concerned.

“When an ego is formed, the three aspects of the Higher Triad, i.e.., Atma, Buddhi, and Manas, must all be called forth: the first connection, however may be made through any one of the three, as follows:

“[1] Between the lower mind and the higher
“[2] Between the astral body and Buddhi
“[3] Between the physical body and Atma

“The animal will thus individualise in the first case through intellect, in the second case through emotions, and in the third case through will. We will now briefly consider each of these three methods.

“(I) Individualisation through Intellect — If an animal is associated with a human being, who is not predominantly emotional, but whose chief activities are of a mental nature, then the nascent mental body of the animal will be stimulated by the close association, and the probabilities are that individualisation will take place through the mind, as the result of mental efforts made by the animal to understand his master.

“(II) Individualisation through Emotion — If, on the other hand, the master be an emotional man, full of strong affections, the probability is that the animal will develop chiefly through his astral body, and that the final breaking of the link with the group-soul will be due to some sudden outrush of intense, affection, which will reach the buddhic aspect of the floating Monad belonging to it, and will thus cause the formation of the ego.

“(III) Individualisation through Will — In yet a third case, if the master be a man of great spirituality, or of intensely strong will, while the animal will develop, great affection and admiration for him, it will yet be the will within the animal which is principally stimulated. This will show itself in the physical body by intense activity, and indomitable resolution to achieve whatever the creature may attempt, especially in the service of his master.

“We thus see that the character and type of the master will have a great influence on the destiny of the animal. The greater portion of the work is, of course, done without any direct volition on either side, simply by incessant and inevitable action due to the proximity of the two entities concerned. The astral and mental vibrations of the man are far stronger and more complex than those of the animal, and they are consequently exercising a never-ceasing pressure upon the latter….”

A Myth of Creation: The First Outpouring: Atoms and Molecules . by the Theosophists

Written and published on 30 November 2013; revised

Dear Ones,

This is the second in a four-part series representing a Myth of Creation from the Theosophical school of thought, as stated in Citation: “The Causal Body And The Ego,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, 1928, public domain, “Chapter IV. The Formation of the Five Planes.”

FIRST OUTPOURING: ATOMS AND MOLECULES
by ARTHUR E. POWELL

“Continuing now with the creative process, The Third Logos, the Universal Mind, works on  of space – Mulaprakriti, the Celestial Virgin Mary throwing its three qualities of Tamas (Inertia), Rajas (Mobility), and Sattva (Rhythm) out of stable into unstable equilibrium, and therefore into continual motion in relation to each other.

“The Third Logos thus creates the atoms of the five lower planes—Atma, Buddhi, Manas, Kama, and Sthula: ‘Fohat electrifies into life and separates primordial stuff, or pre-genetic matter into atoms.’ …

“Under the directive activity of the Third Logos, the atoms of each plane are awakened to new powers and possibilities of attraction and repulsion, so that they aggregate into molecules, and simpler molecules into complex ones, until, on each of the five planes six lower sub-planes are formed, making, in all seven sub-planes on each plane.

“The matter of the sub-planes so formed, however, is not that now existing: it is the more strongly attractive or cohesive energies of the Second Logos, the aspect of Wisdom or Love, which brings about the further integrations into the forms of matter with which we are acquainted.

“Furthermore, the whirling currents in the atoms, known as spirillae, are not made by the Third Logos, but by the Monads , with whom we shall deal presently. The spirillae are developed into full activity in the course of evolution, normally one in each Round. Many of the practices of Yoga are directed to bring about the more rapid development of the spirillae.

“Thus in every atom lie involved innumerable possibilities of response to the three aspects of consciousness, and these possibilities are developed in the atom in the course of evolution. This work of the Third Logos is usually spoken of as the First Life Wave, or First Outpouring.”

A Myth of Creation: The Second Outpouring: Weaving of DNA? . by the Theosophists . with comments by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 30 November 2013; revised

Dear Ones,

This is the third in a four-part series representing a Myth of Creation from the Theosophical school of thought, as stated in Citation: “The Causal Body And The Ego,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, 1928, public domain, “Chapter V. The Kingdoms of Life.”

It is possible the second outpouring refers to the weaving of DNA strands, which in the passage below are termed ‘primary tissues’. Note that Judy Satori has referred to the women of Lyra as ‘weaving’ physical form. See …

Video: “The Song of Lyra,” by Judy Satori … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2l624c6GbE … Some say it may possibly help repair our DNA codes.

I love the analogy to the waterspout near the end of this long passage. It looked like the preceding info was needed to understand the waterspout, but maybe you could intuit it without reading anything but the bolded text.

In love, light and joy,

SECOND OUTPOURING: WEAVING OF PRIMARY TISSUES (DNA STRANDS?)
by ARTHUR E. POWELL

“Into the matter vivified by the Third Logos, the second great wave of the divine life descends, coming from the Second Logos or Second Person of the Trinity,: this is usually known as the Second Outpouring….

“Slowly and gradually this resistless flood of life pours down through the various, planes and kingdoms, spending in each of them a period equal in duration, to one entire incarnation of a planetary chain, and covering many millions, of years….

“When it ensouls matter of the lower sub-planes of each plane, i.e., all the sub-planes below the atomic, which consist of molecular matter, it is known as Elemental Essence. This name is borrowed from the writings of mediaeval occultists, it having been bestowed by them on the matter of which the bodies, of nature spirits were composed: for they spoke of these as ‘Elementals’, dividing them into classes belonging to the elements of Fire, Air, Water and Earth.

 “When the Outpouring, or wave of the Divine Life – which in some previous aeon, has finished its downward evolution through the buddhic plane—pours down into the highest level of the mental plane, it ensouls great masses of atomic mental matter….

“The Wave of Life, then, having drawn together the matter of the Causal Plane, combines it into what at that level corresponds to substances, and of these substances builds forms which it inhabits. This is called the First Elemental, Kingdom….

“As we are here dealing with the Monadic essence on its downward arc, progress for it means descent into matter instead of as with us, ascent towards, higher planes. Hence this essence, even on the causal plane, is less evolved than we are, not more so: but it would perhaps be more accurate to say that it is less in-volved, as its e-volution, in the strict sense of that term has not yet commenced.

“There are seven subdivisions in the First Elemental Kingdom: the highest corresponds with the first sub-plane; the second, third and fourth correspond with the second sub-plane; the fifth, and sixth and seventh correspond with the third sub-plane.

“After spending a whole chain period evolving through different forms at that level, the wave of life, which is all the time pressing steadily downwards identifies itself so fully with these forms that, instead of occupying them and withdrawing from them periodically, it is able to hold them permanently and make them part of itself. When that stage is reached, it can proceed to the temporary occupation of forms at a still lower level. Accordingly it takes forms on the lower mental , or rupa [form] levels of the mental plane, and is known then as the Second, Elemental Kingdom….

“After spending a whole chain-period at this stage, the continuous downward, pressure has caused the process to repeat itself. Once more the life has identified itself with its forms, and has taken up its residence on the lower mental levels. Then it takes for itself forms of astral matter, and becomes the Third Elemental Kingdom….

“After spending a whole chain-period in the Third Elemental Kingdom, the life again identifies itself with those forms, and so is able to ensoul the etheric part of the mineral kingdom, becoming the life which vivifies that kingdom.

“In the course of the mineral evolution, the downward pressure again causes the life to identify itself with the etheric forms, and from those forms to ensoul, the denser matter of such minerals as are perceptible to our senses.

“What we know as the mineral kingdom includes, of course, not only what are usually called minerals, but also liquids, gases, and many etheric substances, as yet unknown to Western orthodox science….

“When the Outpouring has reached the central point of the mineral kingdom, the downward pressure ceases, and is replaced by an upward tendency. The ‘outbreathing’, has ceased, and the ‘inbreathing’ or indrawing has begun….

“…the Logos sends out a constant succession of waves of life, so that at any given time we find a number of them in operation. Thus we ourselves represent one such wave; the wave that immediately followed our wave now ensouls the animal kingdom; the wave behind that is now in the vegetable kingdom; a fourth is in the mineral stage; whilst a fifth, sixth and seventh are represented by the Three Elemental Kingdoms. All are successive, ripples of the same great Outpouring from the Second Aspect of the Logos.

“The whole scheme tends increasingly towards differentiation, the streams as they descend from kingdom to kingdom dividing and subdividing more and more….

“The process of subdivision continues until, at the end of the first great stage of evolution, it is finally divided into individualities, i.e., into men, each man being a separate and distinct soul, though at first, of course, an undeveloped soul.

“Looking at the work of the Second Life Waves, or Second Outpouring,-as a whole, we may fairly regard its downward sweep as concerned with the making of primary tissues, out of which in due time, subtle and dense bodies will be formed. In certain ancient scriptures this process has been aptly called ‘weaving’.

“The materials which are prepared by the Third Logos, are woven by the Second Logos into threads and fabrics out of which future garments –  i.e., bodies — will be made.

“The Third Logos may be thought of as a Chemist, working as in a laboratory; the Second Logos we may regard as the Weaver, working as in manufactory, Materialistic as are these similes, they are useful as crutches for the understanding.

“The Second Logos thus ‘weaves’ various kinds of cloth, i.e., of material, out of which will later be made the causal and mental bodies of men; out of the cloth of astral matter, of desire stuff, will later be made the astral bodies of men.

“Thus are fashioned the materials of the mechanism of consciousness, the characteristics of each class of material being determined by the nature of the aggregations of particles – texture, colour, density, and so forth.

“All this downward sweep of the life-wave through the planes, giving qualities to the many grades of matter, is a preparation for evolution and is often and more properly, called involution.

“After the lowest stage of immersion in matter is reached both the first and the second outpouring turn upwards and begin their long ascent through the planes: this is evolution properly so called….” –from Citation: “The Causal Body And The Ego,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, 1928, public domain, “Chapter V. The Kingdoms of Life.”

The Devas and the Nature Spirits . by the Theosophists

Written and published on 30 Nov 2013; revised

Dear Ones,

Here are thoughts by the School of Theosophy on the Devic Kingdom … the devas, nature spirits, elves, fairies, trolls, gnomes, and so on.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

…………………………………………………………………………………………………….
THE DEVAS AND THE NATURE SPIRITS, BY THE THEOSOPHISTS

“The Second Outpouring, in addition to its work of forming the Elemental and other Kingdoms, also brings with it evolved beings, at various stages of development, who form the normal and typical inhabitants of the Three Elemental Kingdoms. These beings have been brought over by the Logos from a preceding evolution. They are now sent forth to inhabit the plane for which their development fits them; they co-operate with the work of the Logos, and later with man, in the general scheme of evolution. From them, man derives his perishable bodies.

“They are known in some religions as Angels, to Hindus as Devas—meaning literally, Shining Ones. Plato speaks of them as ‘Minor Gods’. It is the translation of the word ‘Deva’ as ‘Gods’ which has led to much misapprehension of Eastern thought. The ‘thirty-three crores (330 millions) of Gods’, are not Gods in the Western sense of the term, but are Devas or Shining Ones.

“Of these there are many grades, including representatives on each of the five lower planes, i.e.,  those of Atma, Buddhi, Manas, Kama, and the etheric part of the physical plane.

“Their bodies are formed of the Elemental Essence of the Kingdom to which they belong, and are flashing and many-hued, changing form at the will of the entity Himself. They form a vast host, ever actively at work, labouring at the Elemental Essence to improve its quality, taking it to form their own bodies, throwing it off again and taking other portions, so as to render it more sensitive.

“In the First Elemental Kingdom, on the higher mental or causal plane, they make materials ready to clothe abstract thoughts. In the Second Elemental Kingdom, on the lower mental plane, they make materials ready to clothe concrete thoughts. In the Third Elemental Kingdom, on the astral plane, they prepare materials for the clothing of desires.

“At the stage which we are now considering, this work of improving the Elemental Essence, is the only work there is for them to do. Later on, they are also constantly busied in the shaping of forms, in aiding human egos on the way to incarnation in building their new bodies, bringing materials of the kind required and helping in its arrangements. The less advanced the ego, the greater the directive work of the Devas. With animals they do almost all the work, and practically all with the vegetables and minerals. They are the active, agents of the Logos, carrying out all details of His world-plan, and aiding, the countless evolving lives to find materials they need for their clothing and use. Included with them are the vast numbers of the fairy kingdom, known as nature spirits, trolls, gnomes, and by countless other names.

“Some description of these hosts of beings is given in The Astral Body and The Mental Body, so that there is no need to describe them further here. All we are really concerned with at the moment is their origin, and the part they play in helping the Monads to commence their evolution in the lower planes.

“The term Deva is, strictly speaking, not wide enough to cover all the living agencies which are employed in the work connected with the Monads and their long pilgrimage through the lower worlds. This work is carried out by no less than seven orders of beings, known collectively as Creative Hierarchies, the Monads, themselves, curiously enough, being one of the seven.

“For our present purposes, however, in order not to make the description too complicated and involved, we shall denote all these agencies by the single term Devas. In a later and separate chapter we shall to some extent go over the ground again more in detail, and give the names and functions [so far as these are known] of the seven Creative Hierarchies.

“Thus we see that before any embodied consciousness, save that of the Logos and His Creative Hierarchies, could appear, or do anything at all, a vast preliminary work had to be accomplished, preparing the ‘form-side’ of the field of evolution.”

Kundalini, Prana, and Fohat . by Arthur E. Powell . with comments by Alice B. Clagett

Compiled and published on 27 Nov 2013; republished on 18 December 2017; revised

  • KUNDALINI, PRANA, AND FOHAT
  • MORE INFORMATION

Dear Ones,

The below passage from “The Causal Body and the Ego,” by Arthur E. Powell, describes three of the forces in the Plane of Forces, which includes in all six forces: electricity, gravity, magnetism, fohat, prana, and kundalini.

KUNDALINI, PRANA, AND FOHAT

Powell speaks of kundalini, prana, and fohat. Missing from this quotation are the forces of electricity, gravity and magnetism …

“…Kundalini, or the serpent-fire, which wells up from the interior of the human body, belongs to the First Outpouring, and exists on all planes of which we know anything. This force of Kundalini is, of course quite distinct from Prana or Vitality, which belongs to the Second Outpouring, and also from Fohat, i.e.., from all forms of physical energy such as electricity, light, heat, etc. (vide ‘The Etheric Double,’ ‘The Astral Body’ and ‘The Mental Body,’ passim).” (1)

The Will to Live and to Create . by the Theosophists

Written and published on 27 November 2013; revised

Dear Ones,

Here are the Theosophists on the will to live and to create.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
THE WILL TO LIVE AND CREATE, BY THE THEOSOPHISTS

“We are here, in the worlds of matter, because we, as Monads, willed to live: We are Self-moved, Self-determined.

“This Divine impulse, striving ever after fuller manifestation of life, is seen everywhere in nature, and has often been spoken of as the Will-to-live. It appears in the seed, which pushes its growing point up towards the light, in the bud bursting its prison and expanding in the sunshine. It is the creative genius in the painter, the sculptor, the poet, the musician, the craftsman. The subtlest pleasure, the keenest savour of exquisite delight, derives from this urge, from within, to create. All things feel most alive when multiplying themselves by creation. To expand, to increase, results from the Will-to-live: The fruition is the Bliss of living, the joy of being alive.”
