Stanza VI, Sloka 5-6
5. At the fourth, the sons are told to create their images. One third refuses – to obey.
The curse is pronounced; they will be born on the fourth suffer and cause suffering; this is the first war.
6. The older wheels rotated downwards and upwards….The mother’s spawn filled the whole. There were battles fought between the Creators and the Destroyers, and battles fought for space; the seed appearing and re-appearing continuously.
“Mr. Old: You see, HPB, I had some little hand in formulating that question. You see, it leaves us in the dark to a certain extent; because, although perhaps reference is found and full information given elsewhere, still in confining ourselves to respectable limits for one evening it did not give me the idea that there was any activity per se.
Mme. Blavatsky: Where? In the human “seats”, or the cosmic “seats”?
Mr. Old: In the human, because you speak of that being awakened.
Mme. Blavatsky: Certainly, there are none; but once they are awakened, they must be attuned to the seats of the cosmic planes, or else I can assure you it won’t produce good results, because the man will become a Frankenstein Jr. – everything that is horrid. For those are the rare cases when the higher powers are awakened and put to bad use by matter, which is so intensely stronger that it forces a man into the worst of vices and black magic and therefore he ends in Avichi. These are the rare cases that are spoken about in Esoteric Buddhism.
Mr. B. Keightley: It is what Sinnett calls “evil spirituality”.
Mr. Old: Does the elevation of the spiritual consciousness precede or come after the awakening? Or is it the cause of the awakening?
Mme. Blavatsky: The cause of awakening depends a good deal upon the higher Manas, and how it perceives the universe, and how it can discern right from the wrong – for the man has the faculty in him of discerning, really, that which is wrong universally ( I do not mean about Mrs. Grundy’s code of honour.)
Then he can attune his seats with those on the higher cosmic plane. And then he becomes at one with Nature; he becomes a co-worker with Nature, he helps Nature, and therefore Nature helps him. But, gentlemen, unfortunately, the three – excepting persons who lead very high lives – this certainly don’t awaken.
There is the higher Manas, the intelligence in man in the physical brain. We see plenty of intellectual men, but they are nothing but – they are higher intellectual animals. They have no spirituality in them.”
H. P. Blavatsky
