Solar Fire/Spark of Mind:  There is next the Fire or Spark of Mind which is the correspondence in man to Solar Fire.  This constitutes the thinking self-conscious unit or the Soul.  This fire of mind is governed by the Law of Attraction as is its greater correspondence.  Later we can enlarge on this.  It is this spark of mind in man, manifesting as spiral cyclic activity, which leads to expansion and to his eventual return to the center of his system, the Monad - the origin and goal for the reincarnating Jiva or human being.  

As in the macrocosm, this fire also manifests in a twofold manner.

  1. It shows as that intelligent will which links the Monad or Spirit with its lowest point of contact, the personality, functioning through a physical vehicle.

  1. It likewise demonstrates, as yet imperfectly, as the vitalizing factor in the thought-forms fabricated by the thinker.  As yet but few thought-forms, comparatively, can be said to be constructed by the center of consciousness, the thinker, the Ego.  Most of the thought-forms at present in circulation may be said to be aggregations of matter, built into form with the aid of kama-manas (or of desire faintly tinged with mind producing thus an admixture of Astral and mental matter, mostly Astral), and largely due to reflex elemental action.  These dualities of expression are Active fire or prana, and latent fire or bodily heat.

Electric Fire/Monadic Flame Divine:  This embodies the highest vibration of which the Monad is capable, is governed by the Law of Synthesis, and is the cause of the forward progressive movement of the evolving Jiva.

When the latent fire of the personality or lower self blends with the fire of mind, that of the higher self, and finally merges with the Divine Flame, then the man takes the fifth Initiation in this solar system, and has completed one of his greater cycles.  When the three blaze forth as one fire, liberation from matter, or from material form is achieved.  Matter has been correctly adjusted to Spirit, and finally the indwelling life slips forth out of its sheath which forms now only a channel for liberation.

These terms, Lower Self, Higher Self, Divine Self, are apt to be confusing until the student apprehends the various synonyms connected with them. The following table may be found helpful:














Divine Self

Higher Self

Lower Self



Personal Self

The Point

The Triad

The Quaternary


Solar Angel

Lunar Lords


1.  Spiritual/Electric Fire:  Little can be said about the evolution of Spirit as yet it can only be expressed in terms of the evolution of matter, except that it is the cause of forward progressive motion which, in its totality, is rotary, cyclic and progressive.

2.  Solar Fire/Mental Fire:  The expression of the evolution of manas, the vitality and evolution of the Soul results in consciousness that is spiral cyclic in nature.

3.  Fire by Friction:  Concerns the axial rotary activity and eventual evolution of matter.  The three fires blaze forth producing perfected consciousness, resulting in the purification and eventual destruction of the form upon the lower planes.
