“17. THE BREATH (HUMAN MONAD) NEEDED A FORM; THE FATHERS GAVE IT. THE BREATH NEEDED A GROSS BODY; THE EARTH MOLDED IT. THE BREATH NEEDED THE SPIRIT OF LIFE; THE SOLAR LHAS BREATHED IT INTO ITS FORM.
THE BREATH NEEDED A MIRROR OF ITS BODY (ASTRAL SHADOW); “WE GAVE IT OUR OWN”, SAID THE DHYANIS. THE BREATH NEEDED A VEHICLE OF DESIRES (KAMA-RUPA); “IT HAS IT”, SAID THE DRAINER OF WATERS (SUCHI, THE FIRE OF PASSION AND ANIMAL INSTINCT).
THE BREATH NEEDS A MIND TO EMBRACE THE UNIVERSE; “WE CANNOT GIVE THAT”, SAID THE FATHERS. “I NEVER HAD IT”, SAID THE SPIRIT OF THE EARTH. “THE FORM WOULD BE CONSUMED WERE I TO GIVE IT MINE”, SAID THE GREAT (SOLAR) FIRE….(NASCENT) MAN REMAINED AN EMPTY, SENSELESS BHUTA….THUS HAVE THE BONELESS GIVEN LIFE TO THOSE WHO BECAME (LATER) MEN WITH BONES IN THE THIRD (RACE).
The “Father” of primitive physical man, or of his body, is the vital electric principle residing in the Sun.
The Moon is its Mother, because of that mysterious power in the Moon which has as decided an influence upon human gestation and generation, which it regulates, as it has on the growth of plants and animals.
The “Wind” or Ether, standing in this case for the agent of transmission by which those influences are carried down from the two luminaries and diffused upon the Earth, is referred to as the “nurse”; while “Spiritual Fire” alone makes of man a divine and perfect entity.”
