Letters on Occult Meditation - Letter IV - The Use of the Sacred Word in Meditation
The Spleen

The spleen, the third center, has a specific purpose. It has its correspondence in the third or activity aspect, and in the third or Activity (Adaptability) Ray, and is the basis of all the fundamental activities of the microcosm, and of the recurring adaptations of the microcosm to its environment, to its need and to the macrocosm. It controls the selective processes of the microcosm; it takes the vibratory force and energy of the macrocosm and transmutes it for the use of the microcosm. We might call it the organ of transmutation, and - as its functions are more completely understood, - it will be found that it provides a magnetic link between the conscious, thinking, threefold man and his lower vehicles, regarding those lower vehicles as the Not-Self, and as themselves animated by informing entities. It is the life force contacting those entities that is the issue and aim.

In its emotional counterpart, it is the organ of emotional vitality, again in the same sense as providing a link; on the mental plane it serves somewhat the same purpose, only this time through this center are the thought-forms vitalized by means of the energizing will. I will not, therefore, deal more fully with this center beyond these general indications. Few people have the faculty of stimulating [73] it through the use of the Word, nor is it desirable that they should. It develops normally if the aspirant himself - as a totality - progresses as desired: - if his physical body receives adequate application of the life forces of the sun, if his emotional body is moved by high desire, and open to the downflow of force from the causal and intuitional levels, and if his mental life is intense, vibrant, and animated by a powerful will. Then the spleen, with its inner counterparts, will progress and be in a healthy condition.

We will therefore thus dispose of it and give no further space to it in these letters.
