MANIFESTATIONS OF THE LOGOS
The Logos irradiates the sphere of Matter, drawn round Him, as the field for the future Universe, flashing with unimaginable splendor. He is a mountain of Light invisible except on the spiritual planes. Sphere of Matter is the Primary Substance (Prathana). Logos is self-conditioned, inseparable at every point with the Matter.
Logos draws Himself a little apart from the Matter. It is self-conditioned Will. It leads the Creative Activity. This position is stated as Second Logos.The relation between the First and the Second is like that of a Father and Son. Second Logos is Wisdom.
Now the unmanifest has begun to manifest. When the Divine Activity commences, forms are made. We call this the Third Logos.
Before the state of commencement of Divine Activity, Monads – the Units of Consciousness are originated.
A Field of Universe is to be made for the operation of Monads – which we call the Evolution of Matter. These Monads are generated within the Divine Life, as germ-cells in an organism. Field for their evolution is the Universe.
Many arise in the One by the act of Will.
Will has two aspects within: Attraction and Repulsion. When the repulsion activity commences/ energizes, there is Separation, driving apart.
The First Logos – the Undivided Lord – is the Eternal Father.
By the action of Will, the Monads are originated. The One multiplies and becomes many.
