Prana, therefore, which is active radiatory heat, varies in vibration and quality according to the receiving Entity. Man passes the prana through his Etheric vehicle, colors it with his own peculiar quality, and so transmits it to the lesser lives that make up his little system Thus, the great interaction goes on, and all parts blend, merge and are interdependent; and all parts receive, color, qualify and transmit. An endless circulation goes on that has neither a conceivable beginning nor possible end from the point of view of finite man, for its source and end are hid in the unknown cosmic fount.
We might here note a fact of interest, though of a mystery insoluble as yet to most of us, and that is, that these destructions by fire are part of the tests by fire of an initiation of that one of the Heavenly Men Whose karma is bound up with our earth. Each destruction of a portion of the web results in a greater facility of exit, and is in reality (when seen from the higher planes) a step forward and an expansion. A repetition of this takes place likewise in the system at the stated cycle.
DISORDERS OF THE ETHERIC BODY
We will now study the Etheric body, and its ills and also its after death condition. This matter can be only briefly touched upon. All that may now be indicated is a general idea of the fundamental ailments to which the Etheric may be subject, and the trend which applied medicine may later take when occult laws are better understood. One fact must here be brought out - a fact but little comprehended or even apprehended. This is the significant fact that the ills of the Etheric vehicle, in the case of the microcosm, will be found likewise in the Macrocosm. Herein lies the knowledge that oft-times explains the apparent miseries of nature. Some of the great world evils have their source in Etheric ills, extending the idea of the Etheric to planetary conditions and even to solar. As we touch upon the causes of Etheric distress in man, their planetary and solar correspondences and reactions may perhaps be realized.
We will need to bear carefully in mind when studying this matter, that all the diseases of the Etheric body will appertain to its threefold purpose and be either:
a) Microcosmic Functional Disorders
These arise from either an inability or overability to tap into pranic currents, whether through poor living conditions or larger collective evolutionary choices.
b) Microcosmic Organic Disorders
c) Microcosmic Static Disorders
This concerns the Etheric body in its connection with the work of providing a ring-pass-not between the physical and the Astral bodies.
