How These Things Are Known. Raja Ravi rated it it was amazing Jun 19, These are the result of little accessions of vexation at the small worries which are constantly occurring in ordinary life.

Affection and adaptability are both somewhat small in quantity and poor in ldadbeater, being apparently overshadowed by the intellectual development, as the man is not yet sufficiently advanced to possess all these qualities equally in their higher forms. There is one point in connection with the junction which we have been trying to describe which requires further explanation. However, we can see enough to be certain of the existence of a considerable number of these different realms, each of which is in one sense a world in itself, leadbeaetr in another and wider sense all are parts of one leaebeater whole.

Thou art myself, my image and my shadow.

Man Visible and Invisible

Every physical atom is floating in an astral sea – a sea of astral matter which surrounds it and fills every interstice in this physical matter. He plunges about in the sea of matter, he strengthens self by selfishness, and shows himself to astral vision under the very unlovely guise depicted in Plate VII. There is even already vvisible faint tint of that exceedingly delicate violet which implies the capacity of love and devotion turned towards the highest ideal, and also a faint invisiblr of the clear green of sympathy and compassion.

Examining the mental body of the ordinary man as pictured in Plate IX we find that it already shows considerable improvement over that of the undeveloped man. Presently a great finger is extended from the cloud – an inverted cone of violently whirling vapor.

We must not omit to notice one of the grandest characteristics of the developed man – his capacity to serve as a channel for higher force. Again, by carrying on our process of subdivision far enough we reach another unit – the unit of that realm of nature to which occultists have given the name of the astral world. Only among domesticated creatures, and by no means among all classes of even those, does this individualization occur.

Such a vehicle invisigle be a separate study in itself, but one quite inviible the powers of any but those who are already far on the Path.

Man, Visible and Invisible

Obviously, therefore, the surrounding ovoid of mist will seem to such a man much fainter in proportion and much less conspicuous than it really is – indeed he is quite likely to overlook it altogether.

Each of these is in reality a thought-form of intense affection, generated within the astral body, and about to be poured forth from it towards the object of the feeling. All the four forms of manifestation which we noted in connection with the impulse of affection are also observable here – the whirling, gleaming coils, the rapidly-vibrating horizontal lines, the outer film, and the wisps of cloud – and their signification is precisely the same, substituting everywhere religious feeling for affection.

Such a man during life has a dim consciousness in his astral body while asleep, and after death he is very fully conscious and active on the lower astral sub planes. When this color is present in the oval, it invariably shows itself in the upper part of it, in the neighbourhood of the head; consequently it is the origin of the idea of the nimbus or glory round the head of a saint, since this yellow is much the most conspicuous of the colors of the astral body, and the one most easily perceived by anyone who is approaching the verge of clairvoyance.

Here on the physical plane we are still worse off, since the true man is more effectually hidden from us than ever. All these varieties of amd matter exist not only in the world without, but they exist in man also.

Since this finer matter can be modelled by thought, the man is as he thinks of himself, and it is easy for each person to clothe himself as he will. A Shock of Fear. See The Christian Creed. The shell is composed of the great mass of self-centred thought in which the ordinary man is so hopelessly entombed. Each of these aspects appears to have its own quality and power.

We have noticed in Plate II, that astral matter has its seven conditions or degrees of density, corresponding with those on the physical plane.

HITHERTO we have been dealing exclusively with those bodies of man which are connected with the higher planes, but our subject would not be completely treated if we omitted all reference to the minutely subdivided physical matter which is seen by clairvoyant sight to be part of the visile of man.

The case selected for illustration is of course an extreme one, and such a viisible does not usually last more than a few minutes. Our diagram enables us to see what was the point at issue; and furthermore, it shows us, curiously enough, that both parties were right, and that if they had only clearly understood the matter there need have been no schism at all.

IceCrystal rated it did not like it Dec 17, We may have, for example, hydrogen in an etheric condition instead of as a gas; we may have gold or silver or any other element either as a solid, a liquid, or a gas, or in this other higher state which we call etheric. This blue triangle corresponds to the other triangle in the circle which is seen in Plate III. The Greek Church, on the other hand, insisted absolutely on the distinctness of the Three Manifestations, and quite rightly protested against any theory of a procession from the First Manifestation through the Second such as would be typified in our diagram if we drew a diagonal line through the First, Second, and Third.


These are names given in order to indicate a certain quality of the matter of the plane; in the lower part of it the matter is very readily moulded by the action of human thought into definite forms, while on the higher division this does not occur, but the more abstract thought of that level expresses itself to the eye of the clairvoyant in flashes or streams.

Plate V Causal Body of the Savage. The low type of green in the mental body of the undeveloped man which denotes deceit very strongly tinged by avarice and selfishness required for its vibrations a type of matter denser and coarser than that needed by the scarlet of anger.

But science teaches us that this process is not instantaneous, and that it is not the hand which feels, but the brain; that the nerves communicate the idea of intense heat to the brain, which leavbeater once telegraphs back along the nerve-threads the instruction to withdraw the hand; and it is only as a result of all this that the withdrawal takes place, though it seems to us to be immediate.

An attempt vusible made in our illustrations to represent the general appearance of this stream, but this must not of course be supposed to be an accurate map of the nervous system.
