The Qualities of Rotary Motion
Every rotating sphere of matter is characterized by the three qualities of inertia, mobility and rhythm.
1. Inertia: The state of every atom at the dawn of manifestation, at the beginning of a solar cycle or mahamanvantara, at the commencement of a chain, a globe, or any spheroidal form whatsoever without exception. Inertia is the result of lack of activity of the fires of matter. These fires are latent (free from the stimulations of form-life) during pralaya.
Where form exists, the Laws of Attraction/Repulsion make radiation possible. Then comes stimulation, emanative effect, and a gradual acceleration by which the atom itself, by its own rotary movement, produces the next (higher) quality.
2. Mobility: Rotation eventually produces radiation, and in the case of matter, effects other atoms in its environment, whether that is cosmic, system, or the physical sphere of a single man. This eventually produces coherence of form for a period of time until rhythm is recognized.
3. Rhythm: The attainment of the point of perfect balance and equilibrium produces certain effects:
Rotary Motion and Symbolism
Every rotating sphere of matter can be pictured using the same general cosmic symbols as those used for the portrayal of evolution.
MOTION AND THE CENTERS
A word of warning is here sounded; let a man apply himself to a life of high altruism, to a discipline that will refine bring his lower vehicles into subjection, and to purify and control his sheaths. When he has thus raised and stabilized his vibration, he will find that the development of the centers has pursued a parallel course. Much danger and dire calamity attends the man who arouses these centers by unlawful methods. It is not the part of a coward, concerning careful and cautious movements in these matters; it is the part of discretion. Therefore, the disciple has three tasks:
