"The Lipika circumscribe the triangle, the first one (the vertical line or the figure I.), the cube, the second one, and the
pentacle within the egg (circle) (a). It is the ring called “Pass not,” for those who descend and ascend (as also for those) who, during the Kalpa, are progressing toward the great day “ Be with us ” (b). . . . Thus were formed the Arupa and the Rupa (the Formless World and the World of Forms) ; from one light seven lights; from each of the seven seven times seven lights. The “ Wheels” watch the Ring."
Similarly in John 10:30 Christ says ”I and my Father are one.” In the footnote Subbarow is quoted and he speaks of the center of spiritual energy as the first Logos, Christos, Avalkôtiêshwara. From this center all emanates from. First come the triangle, the cube and the pentacle and in this Logos they are circumscribed by the Lipika from the absolute One, thus creating limited conditions, then comes the 7 ”architects” ie. the Dhyan Chohans or the 7 Sephiroth below the first triad in the Kabbalistic Tree of Life, or. the 7 Celestials. These create the condition that is mind and mind creates more and more hierarchical structures and workers.Secret Doctrine wrote: Moreover, in Occult metaphysics there are, properly speaking, two “ Ones ”—the One on the unreachable plane of Absoluteness and Infinity, on which no speculation is possible, and the Second “ One ” on the plane of Emanations. The former can neither emanate nor be divided, as it is eternal, absolute, and immutable. The Second, being, so to speak, the reflection of the first One (for it is the Logos, or Eswara, in the Universe of Illusion), can do all this.
Talking about the Dhyan Chohans, Blavatsky states: ”But these, unless they return into their primal Element, can never cross beyond the Laya, or zero-point.”
My take on this is that without striving to understand them as a one whole, some of the demonic sides of them are usually contacted. As in the Celestial Hymn practice it is recommended that a proper balance should be held by reciting the hymns daily giving attention to each of them. More of the lower hierarchy spirits under one of these seven are contacted if emphasized too much. I can imagnie there’s still space for doing these cycles in a more vast cycles than one week, but I can imagine it becomes risky after some point.
I understand that here are hinted of the myth where the giants procreate with the daughters of men. It is more literal idea than I have thouht of. Ofcourse the daughters are not that literal…Secret Doctrine wrote: All that science has a right to affirm, is that there are no invisible Intelligences living under the same conditions as we do. It cannot deny point-blank the possibility of there being worlds within worlds, under totally different conditions to those that constitute the nature of our world ; nor can it deny that there may be a certain limited communication between some of those worlds and our own. To the highest, we are taught, belong the seven orders of the purely divine Spirits ; to the six lower ones belong hierarchies that can occasionally be seen and heard by men, and who do communicate with their progeny of the Earth ; which progeny is indissolubly linked with them, each principle in man having its direct source in the nature of those great Beings, who furnish us with the respective invisible elements in us.
At the end of the stanzas commentary the Seven cosmic elements and their cycles in us are again elaborated: "The “Monad,” born of the nature and the very Essence of the “ Seven ” (its highest principle becoming immediately enshrined in the Seventh Cosmic Element), has to perform its septenary gyration throughout the Cycle of Being and forms, from the highest to the lowest; and then again from man to God. At the threshold of Paranirvana it reassumes its primeval Essence and becomes the Absolute once more."
Overall this sloka and its commentray seemed to be largely about perceiving the (mostly) invisible ”celestials” and their hierarchies. The ant metaphor was good. We can not perceive these spirits with our normal senses, but they are real active beings working in another plane that is still inseparably woven (though the hierarchies) to the plane we perceive with our five senses. It could be also seen as ”sensing” when we start to understand these higher beings, and in such a process perhaps an occult aspirant feels somekind of guidance in his path towards working with them.
