The "intention to destroy" of the cosmic
Forces of Evil. EXT 188.
Of which you can know nothing, any more than it is possible
for you to comprehend the nature of cosmic evil. RI 400.
The watching Lords, recognizing the rupas formed, gave
a sign to the circulating Fourth and it speeded faster on its way. When the lesser Fifth had midway passed and all the lesser
four were peopling the land, the Lords of Dark Intent arose. They said: "Not so shall go the force. The forms
and rupas of the third and fourth, within the corresponding Fifth, approach too close the archetype. The work is far too good."
The Lords of Cosmic Evil. RI 732.
The Great White Lodge, our spiritual Hierarchy, and the
Black Lodge employ the same universal energies but with different motives and objectives; both groups are groups of
trained esotericists. ENA 61.
They constructed other forms. They called for cosmic fire.
The seven deep pits of hell belched forth the animating shades. The incoming seventh reduced to order all the forms, -the
white, the dark, the red, and shaded brown.
The period of destruction extended far on either
hand. The work was sadly marred. The Chohans of the highest plane gazed in silence on the work. The Asuras and the
Chaitans, the Sons of Cosmic Evil, and the Rishis of the darkest constellations, gathered their lesser hosts, the darkest
spawn of hell. They darkened all the space. TCF 29.
Asuras or ‘no-gods’. (TG) Asuras -- degraded from high gods into Cosmic demons; and with Vritri or Ah-hi; the battles fought
between stars and constellations, between Moon and planets. SD1 202.
The Black Lodge or the planetary center of evil works almost
entirely upon the astral plane, and is impressed directly and guided in detail from the cosmic astral plane.
There are two poles in everything; seven
states in every state. SD3 570.
JPC: My proposition is this, the Seven deep pits of hell are analogous to and symbolic of, Seven
magnetically corrupted and decaying Solar Systems. The Seven Systems of the "Lords of Dark
Intent." To gain an inverted freedom of these seven pits of hell the dark lords take one of seven paths, which are counter
wise and an opposite pole to the seven paths of freedom the White Lodge members choose. The Dark Lords are always prisoners
to matter and destruction. There are Seven Paths of Manasic Evil. One could equally call it one path with seven divisions.
DK informs us that the dark lodge is 'guided in detail' and I would like to indicate that this detail is divided into seven
divisions on the cosmic astral plane, each a division to oppose and attempt to render futile the evolving work of the seven
rays as they tend to the bringing of order and progress to the solar system "all the space" via the Lords of these rays and
I have spoken of the evil present in the planet
in very simple terms, and there are phases of it to which I have not referred; the interlocking and interpenetrating of the
grades of evil are far more numerous and intricate than you surmise. EXT 689.
In contrast to:
Life is the synthesis of all activity
- an activity which is a blend of many energies, for life is the sum total
of the energies of the seven solar systems, of which our solar system is but one. These, in their totality,
are the expression of the activity of that Being Who is designated in our hierarchical archives as the "One About Whom Naught
May Be Said." This sevenfold cosmic energy, the fused and blended energies of seven solar systems, including ours,
sweeps automatically through each of the seven, carrying the qualities of
Impulse towards activity.
Active impulse towards organization.
Active organized impulse towards a definite purpose. EP1 150.
I have worded these impulses as above in order to show
the emergent tendency through their mutual interplay. This triple energetic impulse, borne on the impetus of the seven
great breaths or rays, started the world process of Becoming, and manifested as the urge towards evolution,
- towards an evolution which is active, organized, and which works undeviatingly and unerringly towards a specific
goal. This goal is known in its fullest measure only to that incomprehensible Existence Who works through
seven solar systems (in their turn the expression of seven great Lives) EP1 151.
JPC: For the purpose of this study I am continuing to use
the strict laws of analogy, correspondences and polar opposites. The seven dissolving and putrefying solar systems, constellations,
having been magnetically corrupted, serve as the centre of cosmic evil on the cosmic astral plane as stated by DK. The simplicity
of its objective is clearly laid out in the stanza in TCF. It is one of destruction and complete halting of the flow of spiritual
evolution via the seven solar systems of the OAWNMS. One of those solar systems is ours that of the solar logos named Shining
Face. The 49 ashrams of the counter wise dark agents to the great white brotherhood finally, work through seven invertly
hierarchical departments in order to work “against” in every “detail” human affairs and living
to bring deconstruction and dissolution to the organised activities of human efforts and progress.
The above three solar qualities are very important in their
distinction as they provide a clear indicator as to how the dark forces, the sons of cosmic evil seek to battle against cosmic,
solar and planetary evolution. Quite simply it could be stated they seek to destroy and dissolve the fused and blended energies
of the seven systems, bringing:
Impulse towards Inactivity.
Static tendency toward dissolution.
Organized effort towards discovery of a definite purpose. JPC.
The fact of the Hierarchy must be announced in no uncertain
terms, thereby arousing public interest, public investigation and public recognition.
In the process of so doing much will be
learnt of the balancing group of initiates and adepts who work entirely with the material side of life and
in whom (for this major world cycle) the love aspect of the soul remains totally undeveloped, whereas the mind nature is potently
If you will study what I have earlier given anent
certain of the higher and lower expressions of the rays you will see how these two fields of endeavor
- that of the Hierarchy, animated by love and that of the opposite pole, the Black Lodge, working entirely through mind and
substance - are engaged and their close relationship will emerge.
You will realize then that the margin of difference
is very slight and is to be found solely in intention, in the underlying purpose and the concrete objectives which
this group of material workers have set themselves. DN 37.
The energy which cosmic evil generates is active along
three main channels:
From the center of cosmic evil upon the cosmic astral plane.
Of this center you can know nothing, and its emanations
and its magnetic aura can only be understood and recognized or interpreted by the senior Masters and by initiates of still
higher rank. EXT 688.
From the Black Lodge which is the externalization of the
center of cosmic evil on Earth. Just as the White Lodge is the representative or correspondence of the cosmic center of light
upon Sirius (the true Great White Lodge), so the Black Lodge is also representative of ancient and cosmic evil.
From the negative or purely material forces of the planet,
which are not necessarily either good or bad but which have been used instinctually and oft unconsciously by humanity for
purely material ends, and are therefore basically anti-spiritual and subject to the influence of human desire - a desire oriented
towards selfishness, and therefore towards separateness. This form of evil is being combated today by the New Group of World
Servers. Of this battle you know something because every thinking man and woman is immediately implicated. EXT 689.

The initiate passes on to the cosmic astral plane and finds
- What? Who knows? I do not. RI 200.
The Logos, the grand Heavenly Man, and the cosmic astral
plane. TCF 87.
The system of the Sirian Logos is on the cosmic mental
plane. TCF 571.
The Cosmic Astral Plane. The force from this plane plays
through our systemic astral plane, the cosmic liquid physical subplane, and it is practically subject only to two differentiations,
each of them occultly embodied in two great groups of devas:
First. The devas who are the substance or force of the
astral plane, viewing it as the sumtotal of desire, of feeling and of sensation. They are, therefore, the nerve centers, or
nerve plexi, of the logoic physical body, for the systemic astral plane provides the nervous system of the logoic physical
body. It is the body of intensest vibration from the physical standpoint, and the vehicle through which all is transmitted
to that portion of the logoic physical body which corresponds to the brain in man. I can elucidate this no further, but the
few words here imparted open up a tremendous range of thought, and give the key to much which transpires and which is distressing
in solar evolution as well as human.
Second. Those devas who are the sumtotal of the astral
light. They are the agents of the karmic lords, who are in themselves deva entities of an inconceivably advanced evolution
and who, in their own substance,
Produce effects from cause.
This particular group of devas emanate from a great force
center which we generalize by calling it by the name of the sun Sirius. Sirius-kama-manas - the cosmic astral plane and the
systemic astral plane - make a close interlocking chain, and form the line of least resistance for a particular type of negative
force to pour through. TCF 624.
This knowledge constitutes the first step towards the comprehension
of the secret of negation, towards a true understanding of the basis of the ever-existent pairs of opposites, and towards
the knowledge which lies behind the significance of negation. The above sentence is in all probability of little meaning to
you, but it nevertheless contains a truth for which the trials, experiences and initiations of planetary existence prepare
the initiate. They endow him with those qualities which will enable him to contact cosmic evil and yet remain untouched, eventually
to play his part in bringing the Black Lodge and its Brotherhood to an unholy finish. The roots of the Black Lodge are on
the cosmic astral plane, as the roots of the White Lodge and its Brotherhood are on the cosmic mental plane; this is, in reality,
only for the time being and in order to see certain organized activities upon the star Sirius perfected and carried to a consummation.
This has oft been hinted in my writings.
"The Way of the Higher Evolution" leads to the cosmic astral
plane, and the goal which carries a man there is the transcendent vision accorded at some of the higher initiations; the quality
which enables him to work as a creative factor in the great White Lodge is the developed buddhic faculty. It is upon the "wings
of Sound" that he travels, to use a well-known though little understood metaphor. RI 202.
To prepare himself for those higher evolutionary processes
which will give him entrance to the cosmic astral plane. This will enable him to "see through" and to recognize "cosmic glamor,"
and will give him the hidden key to the world of feeling and of sentiency, of which our feeling-response and our emotional
and intuitional sensitivity are but the dim and distorted reflections. RI 202.
The Master has now penetrated into another cosmic level,
but He is still within the aura of the One Life. Now the cosmic astral plane is revealed to Him. He sees the reason why, first
of all, sentiency had to be developed; why it had then to be used and mastered and finally had to be completely negated -
negated in such a manner that it dropped below the level of consciousness. There is no glamor upon the cosmic astral plane,
and only those who have dominated sentient reaction upon all levels of the cosmic physical plane and are completely free from
it, can then - through the illumined will and through the power of that mysterious quality (if I may so call a factual expression)
of identification - direct the lowest aspect of cosmic desire upon the cosmic astral plane. This necessarily has to be tuned
in with that to which they are irrevocably related. This identification is therefore the highest expression of divine purpose
upon the cosmic physical plane, even whilst it is the lowest aspect of the cosmic astral desire. Therefore, my brothers, the
transformation with which this rule deals is the transformation of consciousness into identification. More than that I may
not say. To express the true meaning I have no words or symbols. RI 283.
All these seven Paths lead either to the cosmic astral
plane or to the cosmic mental plane, according to the decision made at the sixth initiation. Upon the cosmic astral plane
there is no glamor, but instead a great vortex of energy - the energy of pure love - under the domination of the Law of Attraction.
