Letters on Occult Meditation - Letter VI - The Use of Form in Meditation
The Comprehension of Force

August 17th, 1920

...The tension today is great, and the force pouring in on all the different centers is apt - unless duly regulated - to cause a feeling of fatigue, of tension, of excitement and of restlessness. The secret of regulation which lies in non-resistance is known to very few, and consequently the intensity of emotion, the violent reactions, and present widespread era of crime are the results, very largely, of force misused and misapplied. This can be seen demonstrating in all ranks of life, and only he who knows the secret of being naught but a channel, and who abides still within the secret place, can pass through the present crisis without undue shattering and pain. Stimulation - such as is at present abroad - leads to pain and consequent reaction and must be guarded against with as much care as its opposite, loss of vitality - guarded against, not in the sense of shutting oneself off from stimulating force but of receiving that force, passing it through one's being, and only absorbing as much of it as one can carry. The residue will then pass out from one as a healing agency on its return to the general reservoir. The true and occult significant of force in nature, of the electrical [180] currents of the universe, and of the latent heat stored in all forms is little understood as yet by your exoteric scientists, or your would-be occult students.

...approached the study of occultism. from this angle, and therefore, he attained a profound knowledge of law.

I have touched on this matter as it lies back of all instruction along occult lines. If you can grasp somewhat its meaning, and understand how the law is but the adaptation of the form to some one or other of these great streams of force, you will illuminate your whole life and be carried on those streams of force, those magnetic currents, that vital fluid, those electrical rays (no matter what the terms used) right to the heart of the unknown.

This same idea of force and of the magnetic currents of the solar system governs all I have imparted on meditation in all its branches - specific, individual and collective, based on form or formless; it is the medium through which the mantrams work, from those that touch the elemental lives up to the great Words chanted in rhythm that call the Lord of a Ray, the Deva of a Plane or the Lord of a Solar System Himself. The sounding of these Words, the ascent through graded forms to some specific point, and the chanting of mantrams but put the one who is thus working into the line of some one stream of force. It is the finding of the line of least resistance whereby to reach some goal, to communicate with some individual Intelligence, to control some involutionary life, and to contact and cooperate with some group of devas. The above digression may serve somewhat to sum up what I have lately imparted anent forms, mantric or otherwise, as used by the student of occult meditation.

As may be imagined, the calling of either the devas or the elementals can only be safely undertaken by one who has the power to utilize them wisely when called, [181] hence the mantrams we have enumerated above are only put into the hands of those who are on the side of the constructive forces of the system, or who can constructively control the destructive elements, bending them into line with the disintegrating forces that are themselves part of the great constructive scheme. Should anyone - not thus capable - be able to contact the devas, and, through the use of mantrams gather them to him, he would find that the force they carry would descend on him as a destructive one, and serious consequences might result in one or other of his bodies.

Think this out, therefore, remembering that those dangers would lie along the line of over-stimulation, of sudden shattering, and of disintegration through fire or heat. Should he gather involutionary lives around him the dangers would be different or rather would demonstrate in the opposite effect, - such as loss of vitality due to vampirism, a sucking out of the forces of one or another of his bodies, an abnormal building in of material into some one body (due to the action of such involutionary lives as the physical or desire elementals), and death through water, earth or fire, understood in an occult sense.

I have dealt here with the risks run by anyone who calls within his magnetic radius either of these two groups, without possessing the necessary knowledge to protect, to control and to use. Why have I dealt with this subject at all? Because these magic forms exist, and will be used and known when the student is ready, and the work requires it. Some day the lesser forms will be gradually given out to those who have prepared themselves, and who unselfishly work for the helping of the race. As I said earlier, they were known in Atlantean days. They led to dire results at that time, for they were used by those of unclean life, for selfish ends and evil purpose. They called [182] the elemental hosts to perpetuate their vengeance on their enemies; they called the lesser devas, and utilized their powers to further their ambitions; they sought not to cooperate with the law, but to wield that law for physical plane schemes which originated in their desires. The ruling Hierarchy deemed the danger too great, for the evolution of men and devas was threatened, so They withdrew gradually from the human consciousness the knowledge of the formulas and Words until such a time as the reason was developed somewhat, and the spiritual mind showed signs of awakening. In this way the two great evolutions, and the latent third evolution (composed of involutionary lives) were separated and shut off from each other. Temporarily the whole scale of vibration was slowed down, for the original purpose had been a parallel development. The secret of this apparent setting back of the plans of the Logos lies hid in the remnants of active cosmic Evil that had found their way into manifestation, - a remnant of the first or activity solar system, and the basis of this, the love system. Evil is but the sediment of unfinished karma and has its root in ignorance.

This separation on a threefold scale of the evolving and the involving lives has continued up to date. With the coming in of this seventh Ray of Ceremonial Magic, a tentative approximation of the two evolving groups is to be somewhat permitted, though not as yet with the involving group. Remember this statement. The deva and human evolution will, during the next five hundred years, become somewhat more conscious of each other, and be able therefore more freely to cooperate. With this growing consciousness will be found a seeking after methods of communication. When the need of communication for constructive ends is sincerely felt, then, under the judicious guidance of the Masters, will certain of the old mantrams [183] be permitted circulation. Their action, interaction and reaction will be closely studied and watched. It is hoped that the benefit to both groups will be mutual. The human evolution should give strength to the deva, and the deva, joy to the human. Man should communicate to the devas the objective point of view, while they in turn will pour in on him their healing magnetism. They are the custodians of prana, magnetism and vitality, just as man is the custodian of the fifth principle, or manas. I have given several hints here and more is not possible.

Tomorrow we will take up perhaps the most vitally interesting division on forms connected with fire. Today the matter imparted suffices.
