Letters on Occult Meditation - Letter IV - The Use of the Sacred Word in Meditation
I seek to point out that the student must ever remember that here generalizations only are given. The complexity in the development of the microcosm is as great as in the macrocosm. The awakening of the centers and their particular order is dependent on several factors, such as:
  1. The Ray of the Spirit or Monad.
  2. The Ray of the Ego, Higher Self, or Son, or the subray. [76]
  3. Race and nationality.
  4. The special type of work to be done.
  5. The application of the student.

Fundamental centres

Hence you can see for yourself that it is useless to lay down rules for the development of the centers and to formulate methods whereby the fire can be circulated until such time as trained teachers with expert knowledge and clairvoyant faculty are in charge of the work on the physical plane. It is not desirable for aspirants to focus their thought on any one center. They run the risk of over-stimulation [77], or of attrition. It is not wished that effort be made to turn the fire towards any particular point; in ignorant manipulation lies insanity and fell disease. If the aspirant but seeks spiritual development, if he but aims at sincerity of purpose and at compassionate altruism, if he, with serene application, concentrates on the subjugation of the emotional body and the enlargement of the mental, and cultivates the habit of abstract thinking, the desired results upon the centers will be produced from necessity, and danger will be eliminated.

When these triangles are paths of threefold fire, emanating from the base of the spine, when the interlacing is complete and the fire progresses along the path from center to center in the correct manner, and when this is accomplished in the order required by the man's primary ray, then the work is completed. The fivefold man has attained perfection for this present greater cycle and the goal is reached.

(Note that this order has to be attained in the head centers likewise.)

Tomorrow we will continue the study of the centers more specifically and somewhat describe them, pointing to the effect upon the life through the awakening of these wheels.
