- Dec 2, 2003MONADS AND THE STREAM OF EVOLUTION II
What are the human monads then? They are not originated from our
Solar Logos; their origin lies in the First Secret, Father. Because
of the eternally continuing "worldcreation" Solar Logos gives birth
in itself to those sparks of God. These "fire sparks of God" form
the spiritual side of the manifestation and they are like "drops in
the ocean". The "formal" side of the manifestation is the Cosmic
Christ originated from Father and these Godly sparks are in
the "bosom" of the Cosmic Christ. It is as if the spark of God is
joined to one "atom" of Christ and this combination of a Godly Spark
and a Christ Atom is Monad. Although the name "monad" refers to one,
there is in some high, "architypal" level already a "duality".
Because the monad is born solely from the Father, it can be
called "monogenes". ChristAtom is like a circle around the GodSpark
mantle of light, which makes love possible.
In ancient Saturn angel hierarchy Thronoi "waked up" in the monad
the "will to manifest", atma or spirit man. In the same time they
gave out of themselves the "seed" to our future physical body,
leaving it to coarsest element available, which was then warmth.
When the monad became "sealed" with the will to manifest, it
reflected its "mirror image" to spiritual world. This "reflection",
aatma, spirit man, was the beginning of human evolution. There is a
correspondence between spirit, atma, and the physical body; atma
is "heaven" and physical body equals earth. So: "In the beginning
God created the heaven and the earth".
In ancient Sun angel hierarchy Cherubim waked up the powers of
buddhi in the Monad and the its mirror image reflected to the
buddhic world. Then there was born the seed to the "mantle of
bliss". In the same time another angel hierarchy, Kyriotetes, gave
the seed to ethereal body. In ancient Moon Serafim waked up in the
Monad the manas, a seed for intellect, reason, thought. Its mirror
image reflected in the higher devachan making it possible for the
formation of a bridge between spirit and matter. In the same time
another angel hierarchy, Dynameis, gave the seed to our astral body.
In the end of the ancient Moon, when the evolution of the principles
has reached the "animal-stage", the consciousness of this "animal"
waked to crave individuality. This craving opened a bridge to the
reflection of the Monad and it threw a "ray of love" to the
consciousness of the animal. In the higher devachan an individual
ego or I was born, which is immortal (at least when it stays
connected to atma-buddhi). When the manas waked up in the Monad,
there formed a "circle of manifestation". This "circle" has been
called e.g. auric egg or karmic atom. It is the bridge of love or
bridge of life. It is also a reflection of Christ in the matter and
this materiality consists of the finest ether, which is also
connected to memory. It is a gift from life and it is the "karmic
memory book", out of which our etheric vehicle unfolds in each
reincarnation along the "karmic orders".
Some remarks: It is not so that only the human beings evolve in
this "schoolsystem" of ours. All manifested beings are "evolving"
(of course there is periodic retardation to some creatures) and this
hold good also to the angels. The Thronoi in ancient Saturn have
become the Cherubim in ancient Sun and Serafim in ancient Moon; so
it is the same angel hierarchy, which have "activated" all the
higher potentials (spirit man, life spirit and spirit self) in us.
There is a difference between the two highest "principles" (atma and
buddhi) and the third one (manas), because the first two have a
close relationship to the Monad. Atma is a "reflection" of the God
Spark and buddhi a "reflection" of the Christ Atom; so they are
always taking part in the eternal life of the Monad. This is not
necessarily the case with manas, which is related to our ego.
I think that the legend about the fall of Lucifer can clarify these
things. I have allways felt that there is (psychologically at least)
a relationship between the bringer of the light (of reason),
Lucifer, and manas. Before the fall, there is "buddhi-manas" and
after the fall, "kama-manas" (kama meaning lust, desire). When e.g.
Alberich denounces love in Wagner's Ring-cycle in order to have the
mighty Ring, he cuts himself loose from the monad. After that deed
there is no eternal "part" left in the black magician.
It is said in a legend that when Lucifer fell, a jewel from his
crown also fell to earth. From this jewel was the Chalice of Grail
made and Christ Jesus used this Cup in the Last Supper. Crown is
above head and "above" manas there is buddhi. Christ Jesus brought
the "buddhic forces of Love" to all humankind and, as we remember,
there is correspondence between buddhi and the ethereal world. I
feel that in some sense the auric egg can describe the Chalice of
In the next (and last) "monad post" I try to make some
clarifications (they are surely needed) and discuss the role of our
humanity along with Cosmic Christ and Christ Jesus (it may take a
while). Again I painfully realise that it is not possible to give a
proper treatment to these very deep matters in a few pages, but this
is an attempt anyway (desperate though).
