Thought Forms (9)

Perhaps the supreme example of a thought-form is that known in the Christian Church as the Angel of the Presence. This is not a member of the kingdom of the Angels, but a thought-form of the Christ, wearing His likeness and being an extension of the consciousness of the Christ Himself. It is by means … Continue reading Thought Forms (9)

Thought Forms (8)

There is, however, a type of clairvoyance rather more advanced than ordinary clairvoyance, necessitating a certain amount of control upon the mental plane. It is necessary to retain so much hold over a newly created thought-form as will render it possible to receive impressions by means of it. Such impressions as were made upon the … Continue reading Thought Forms (8)

Thought Waves (3)

A thought-wave or vibration thus conveys the character of the thought, but not its subject. If a Hindu sits wrapped in devotion to Krishna, the thought-waves which pour forth from him stimulate devotion in all those who come under their influence, though in the case of a Muslim, that devotion to Allah, while for the … Continue reading Thought Waves (3)

The Mental Plane (11)

Let us now consider, in this light, the relations between the higher and lower mind and their action on the brain. The mind, Manas, the Thinker is one, and is the Self in the causal body; it is the source of innumerable energies, of vibrations of innumerable kinds. These it sends out, raying outwards from … Continue reading The Mental Plane (11)

The Mental Plane (10)

A very little reflection will convince anyone how little material, suitable for the growth of this lofty body, he affords by his daily life; hence the slowness of evolution, the little progress made. The Thinker should have more of himself to put out in each successive life, and, when this is the case, evolution goes … Continue reading The Mental Plane (10)

The Mental Plane (7)

We have seen that the mental body is so closely mingled with the astral, that they act as a single body, but the dawning mental faculties add to the astral passions a certain strength and quality not apparent in them when they work as purely animal qualities. The impressions made on the mental body are … Continue reading The Mental Plane (7)

The Mental Plane (6)

Let us now turn to the study of the Thinker and his vesture as they are found in men on earth. The body of the consciousness, conditioning it in the four lower subdivisions of the mental plane—the mental body, as we term it —is formed of combinations of the matter of these subdivisions. The Thinker, … Continue reading The Mental Plane (6)

The Mental Plane (1)

The mental plane, as its name implies, is that which belongs to consciousness working as thought; not of the mind as it works through the brain, but as it works in its own world, unencumbered with physical spirit-matter. This world is the world of the real man. The word ‘‘ man ” comes from the … Continue reading The Mental Plane (1)

III. The Principle of Vibration

The Rosicrucians teach that there are Seven Cosmic Principles present and operating throughout the Cosmos, and extending even to its smallest activities. The third cosmic principle is called: The Principle of Vibration. The Principle of Vibration manifests in the manifestation of a state of vibration in everything in the Manifested Cosmos. It is voiced by … Continue reading III. The Principle of Vibration

I. The Principle of Correspondence

The Rosicrucians teach that there are Seven Cosmic Principles present and operating throughout the Cosmos, and extending even to its smallest activities. The first cosmic principle is called "The Principle of Correspondence". The Principle of Correspondence manifests in a certain correspondence or analogy or agreement between manifestations of the various planes of activity in the … Continue reading I.
