Quote of the Month
f it is realised by the
student that manas and intelligent purpose are practically
synonymous terms, it will be immediately apparent that
karma, and the activities of the Lipika Lords, will be
involved in the matter. It will also be apparent that only
as the lower mind is transmuted into the abstract or
higher mind and from thence into the intuition, will man
be able to understand the significance of manas. We may
perhaps ask why this must be so. Surely it is because the
abstract mind is the agent on cosmic levels whereby the
Entity concerned formulates His plans and purposes. These
plans and purposes (conceived of in the abstract mind) in
due course of evolution crystallise into concrete form by
means of the concrete mind. What we call the archetypal
plane in connection with the Logos (the plane whereon He
forms His ideals, His aspirations and His abstract
conceptions) is the logoic correspondence to the atomic
abstract levels of the mental plane, from whence are
initiated the impulses and purposes of the Spirit in
man,—those purposes which eventually force him into an
objective form, thus paralleling logoic manifestation.
First the abstract concept, then the medium provided for
manifestation in form, and, finally, that form itself.
Such is the process for Gods and for men, and in it is
hidden the mystery of mind and of its place in evolution.
Treatise on Cosmic Fire, p. 397
