6. The Lipika circumscribe the triangle, the first one, the cube, the second one, and the pentacle within the egg. It is the ring called “Pass Not” for those who descend and ascend. Also for those who during the Kalpa are progressing towards the great day “Be With Us”. Thus were formed the Rupa and the Arupa: from one Light seven Lights; form each of the seven, seven times seven Lights. The wheels watch the ring….
“Mr. A. Keightley: It is said here the esoteric meaning of the first sentence is that those who have been called Lipikas and the recorders make an impassable barrier between the personal ego and the impersonal self.
Mme. Blavatsky: Certainly.
Mr. B. Keightley: The phrase almost looks as if it were the line of demarcation and division between the four principles and the three. I think there is a question after that on that.
Mme. Blavatsky: I think you have a very erroneous opinion about the three principles of the upper triangle. You don’t take into consideration, or make a difference, when we apply the seven principles on this plane as in man or in Devachan, or the same seven principles after the cycle of life is finished – which is a perfectly different thing, entirely different.
Mr. Kingsland: There is nothing in that Stanza to guide us to that.
Mme. Blavatsky: I could not write more than there is there.
Mr. B. Keightley: That is why these questions are asked.
Mme. Blavatsky: Don’t you see very well that the Lipika, “the Great Day Be-With-Us”, means when everything – when the cycle is finished? I am perfectly sure there must be some reference to it.
Mr. B. Keightley: That is plain; but then is there anything that can be spoken of as a “personal self” still remaining?
Mme. Blavatsky: I will tell you a thing which will settle the whole difficulty. This is what volume?
Mr. B. Keightley: The first.
Mme. Blavatsky: How is it called?
Mr. B. Keightley: Cosmogenesis.
Mme. Blavatsky: Then why should you make me speak of Anthropogenesis? The “personal self” is quite a different thing. This is a thing which has a relation, but no personal gods will have anything to do with it. It does not mean personal in the sense of our personality. It means objective individuality.
Mr. B. Keightley: Yes, but that is different from what the phrase would suggest.
Mr. A. Keightley: Question 2. Does “personal ego” here stand for the Upper Triad, Atma-Buddhi-Manas, or for the lower Quaternary?
Mme. Blavatsky: There it is. It would stand for all, if the principles of a still living man on Earth were meant; it stands for none in the case of the Lipika. It is said – I quote further – they circumscribe the triangle, the first one; the cube or quaternary, the second one; therefore all the seven contain in the triangle three, the quaternary or four within the circle. This is quite plain.
No principles can cross the ring “pass not”, only the memory of these in the eternal divine ideation, which ideation itself from something manifested becomes the Absolute on that “Day Be-With-Us”. Therefore it is.”
H. P. Blavatsky
