|The Monad, acted upon by the Heavenly Man, intelligently forms
his ring-pass-not. There his work ceases from the purely monadic standpoint; the inherent
life of the atomic matter thus constituted produces the later phenomena. The rotary life
of the atoms, and their interplay, modified by the Life of the planetary group, or
Heavenly Man, pursued through long aeons, causes the phenomena of the various
involutionary stages up to the point where certain of the atoms have evolved to the
consciousness of animal-man. All through this inconceivable period (that is, in connection
with our earth sphere) the milliards of atomic lives have pursued their courses, energized
by the Life of the Monad, as it pulsates through the medium of the monadic heart on the
spiritual plane; and equally they have responded to the larger rhythm of the Heavenly Man.
This it is which has produced graded concretion, and brought animal-man to the stage where
the upward pull of the Monad itself began to be felt. At the same time, the Monad on its
 own plane began to respond to the self-engendered energy of the lower form, the two
rhythms contacted, individualization occurred and the pilgrim manifested in his true
Then - as far as concerns the Monad - progressive life forward begins. It is
truly cyclic, repetitive and spiraling. At first the action, or the interplay between the
rotary lower atomic form, and the influence of the Monad, is lethargic, slow and heavy,
and the form retards the action of the Monad, and its heavy vibration tends to offset the
higher. Gradually, as the sweeping spirals play their part, the higher vibration makes
itself felt, and the activity, or motion, is more balanced, but lighter. Thus the cycles
run until the higher rhythm or vibration is so dominant that the influence of the form is
negated, and leads to its eventual discarding. Simultaneously with this, the highest
rhythm of all makes itself felt, leading to increased activity upon the highest planes,
and producing in time a negation of the sheath life of the Ego. As the old Commentary
"The drops of moisture grow heavier. They break as rain upon the lowest plane.
They sink into the clay and cause it to blossom. Thus do the waters cover the earth and
all the cycles.
Two are the objectives of the fathering drops, and each attained in vastly separated
cycles; one is to sink and lose itself in the dark soil of earth; the other to rise and
merge itself in the clear air of heaven.
Between the two vast periods the heat doth play its part.
But when the heat grows fierce, and the fires within the earth and beneath the waters burn
hot and flow, the nature of the many drops is seen to undergo a change. They dissipate in
steam. Thus doth the heat perform its part.
Later again the fire electric flashes forth, and turns the steam to that which will
permit its passage through the air."
We will now sum up briefly the various vibratory impulses which have a definite effect
upon the Monad, and which must be borne in mind as we consider the evolution  of the
Divine Pilgrim. It is not the purpose of this Treatise to enlarge upon each
distinctive impulse. It but seeks to indicate, leaving to later individual students the
expansion of the imparted ideas.
set up in the seven etheric centers of force, the result of the activity of the seven
impulses inherent in the three periodical vehicles, as H. P. B. terms the three main
centers of energy through which the Monad manifests:
- The energy of the monadic ring-pass-not, viewing it as a unit.
- The energy of the causal body, within the monadic periphery.
- The energy of the physical body, the synthesis upon the physical plane of the force
pouring through into manifestation through the three permanent atoms.

force centers, and the atomic substance.
produced by the action of the groups karmically allied with the Pilgrim. They are:

- The throat center.
- The heart center - an esoteric three and exoteric seven.
- The solar plexus - an esoteric three and exoteric four.
- The organs of generation - an esoteric two.

nature, - all of which produce definite results.
vibration of the particular planet upon which the monad may be seeking expression and
produced in the substance of the sheaths by the influences, or vibrations, of the various
planets. This, esoterically understood, is the influence of some one or other of the solar
centers, as the forces emanating from them play upon the planetary centers and thereby
affect the involved monadic units. This is hidden in the karma of the Heavenly Man, and
when true esoteric astrology comes into being then more anent this will be given out.
Astrology as now studied and taught misleads more than it helps, and astrological students
are as yet learning but the a-b-c of this stupendous subject, and are occupied with the
exoteric fringes of that great veil which has been wisely thrown over all planetary lore.
of energy which must ever be considered is that of the planetary Logos, as He pours His
force through some one chain or some one globe upon the groups of evolving human units.
This - from the human standpoint - cannot as yet be calculated, as it is dependent upon
the occult "turning of the attention" by the planetary Logos in meditation upon
any center in His body corporate. It is, of course, all under cosmic law, but beyond the
realization of man. It involves  cognizance of the planetary individual purpose,
which is not revealed until the later initiations.
energy of the solar atom itself has likewise a rhythmic effect upon the individual Monad,
and though it only reaches the monad via the greater centers of Existence yet it has its
effect upon one and all. This is another factor not sufficiently recognized.
energy of the greater life (in which our solar system but forms a part) has to be reckoned
with, and the impulses emanating from the cosmic Logos, the ONE ABOUT WHOM NAUGHT MAY BE
SAID reach the monadic lives and produce stimulation or retardation according to the
nature of the cosmic ideation. These are necessarily entirely outside the ken of average
man and are only touched upon as no tabulation would be complete without them.
also to be borne in mind the play of energy which emanates from any one of those
"Twelve signs of the Zodiac" with which astrology concerns itself. This type of
force is primarily concerned with planetary stimulation, with the planetary Logoi, and is
hidden in Their cyclic karma, - a karma which of course will incidentally involve those
monads and devas which form Their bodies and centers.
