Letters on Occult Meditation - Letter III - Points considered when assigning Meditation
3. The Karmic Condition of the Threefold Man

June 7, 1920

Today the karmic condition of the threefold man and his place in evolution comes up for consideration under our discussion of "Methods of Meditation." It is our third point and of real moment in deciding wisely upon a method suitable for the individual. We have up till now considered first the importance of meditation; then we touched briefly upon the part the egoic ray plays in deciding upon that method, incidentally bringing out a point not much emphasized hitherto that the real goal of meditation is the gradual fracturing, breaking and shattering of the egoic body. Each ray necessitated, we saw, a different process. Then we took up the function of the personality ray in combination with the egoic ray, and saw how in wise consideration of the two factors a method could wisely be apportioned.

Now we take up more specifically the factor of time. Karma and time are more synonymous terms than is oft realized. Occult meditation and the definite commencement of the work of liberating the individual from the periphery of the causal body can only be begun when a certain point in evolution has been attained, and when (through its content) the causal body is of a certain specific gravity, and when the circumference of that body measures up to certain requirements. The whole process is one of Law and not, as is so oft considered, one purely of aspiration and lofty desire. Consider wisely this sentence I have just written upon the karmic condition of the threefold man and his place on the ladder of evolution. What have I specified? Three factors for your consideration: [23]

  1. The point in evolution.
  2. The specific gravity of the causal body.
  3. The size and circumference of the causal body.

Later I intend definitely taking up with you the question of the mental plane and its three higher subplanes, which are the planes of the Ego. We will deal with the position of the causal body on these planes and with the relationship of the causal body to other bodies on the same plane. In this letter I deal only with the three above mentioned points. I deal, therefore, with the causal body itself, with the egoic consciousness and its relationship to the lower self. Later I will deal with the same consciousness on its own plane and its relationship to other egos and to the Hierarchy. Keep this clearly in mind: - the development of the egoic consciousness within the Personality is my main theme at this time. Do not confuse the two. We might word it otherwise: - I will deal with the relationship of the Higher Self to the threefold lower man, and the gradually increasing strength of that relationship through meditation. This increase is coincident with the three factors above named. Let us take them in order.
