Solar System-1

System - 1

Beginnings of Life and
its âprocessesâ have a Cosmic Story. We must remember that the Life did not
emanate on our Earth Globe. On our globe, we have the presence of three
Elemental Kingdoms to start with, then the mineral (Khanija), vegetable(Sasya),
animal (Pasu) and then the Human kingdom.
The matter of the first two planes of our globe viz., Adi and Anupadaka
does not belong to our globe, but was brought in by the Logos from the Cosmos
and its planes. The matter of the other five planes of our globe is the
modified or differentiated form of
this cosmic matter further added on with the Light of the Logos. The Life waves
and Outpourings of Life have their own records of entry.

The activity of
formation of the planes and peopling them with âformsâ is generally indicated
by the term âIn-volutionâ. Once these are solidified at their level, the moving
up or âE-volutionâ begins. So, we can see that the process is not one-sided but
two-forked or reciprocal. Evolution in fact is the âre-volutionâ of the matter and forms into
the original âpristine and pure natureâ.

The different species of animals, vegetation
were the outcome of innumerable elemental forces (Nature Spirits=Bhootas); and
this work of creation, preservation and regeneration continues in process
throughout the period of involution and evolution.

The various forms of
matter that appeared on our globe are the consequences of this process. The
two-winged character of this process is physical and psychic in general. The
process of evolution delinked at one stage from the physical (material) process
and begins exclusively at the psychic scale. We see this as a sort of
âawarenessâ among the domestic and wild animals, as also the human beings. From
the general state of being, a specialized state of being starts. This will lead
from total disassociation with matter and material concerns and due alienation
with mental, spiritual and eventually divine concerns. Disassociation need not
mean delinking but being âout of influence and subjection.â In other words, the
animal or man starts a new continent of thought and being progressing him
towards the unexplored areas of the universe and his relationship with that. 

The purpose, import and
progression of evolution is not limited or restricted to this universe but goes
far beyond unimaginable territories, hitherto considered unreal, too vague and
abstract. The effects of the journey have far-reaching results and also create
new causes. It is all a reciprocal, cyclic and reverberating process.

Our knowledge is
confined to the Solar System to which we belong.

There are many such
Systems, each headed by a Logos. The Absolute is the bosom for countless

We must know what the
term âsolar systemâ means to us.

We, as human beings,
have a sort of consciousness, which means âknowing what we knowâ. We would like
to have this power of consciousness expanded, so that we come to know more and
more things. We want to be awakened to new facts of nature, within and around
us. Awakening is a process in the course of âunfolding the Consciousnessâ in
the beings, which needs a longer period of time and effort. Besides, there has
to be a field for its operation. Such field of evolution for the beings is the âSolar

The Life descends into
the System to begin with. This is known as Involution.

The Solar System, as a
field, receives the Life in Thee Waves and Out-pours.

First the field is prepared;
the division of planes is marked. Then the matter is filled therein. The
particles of matter are further energized to make the forms.

The process of
Involution gets finished with this. Then starts the process of Evolution.
