Blavatsky, The Secret Doctrine. For naturally each of cevachanic bodies responds only to the vibrations of its own plane; and so while the man’s consciousness is focused in his astral body, he will perceive the astral world only, just as while our consciousness is using only the physical senses we perceive nothing but this physical-world —though both these worlds and many others are in existence and full activity all round us all the while.
This would of course be the planf whoever the deity or leader might be, and followers of Buddha, Krishna, Ormuzd, Allah, and Christ would all equally attain their need of celestial bliss — its length and quality depending upon the intensity and purity of the feeling, and not in the least upon its object, though this latter consideration would undoubtedly affect the possibility of receiving instruction during that higher life.
Then if we descend to the second subdivision we shall find that the matter of our first sub-plane has become the energy of this — or, to put the thing more accurately, that the original energy, plus the garment of matter of the first sub-plane with which it has endued itself, is still the energy ensouling the matter of this [page 28 ] second sub-plane.

The Christian on this plane, for example, instead of merely adoring his Saviour, would think of himself as going out into the world to work for him. Only the atomic matter of each of these planes, and even that only m an entirely free condition, is co-extensive with the interplanetary ether, and consequently a person can no more pass from planet to lanet even of our own chain in his astral body or his mind -body, than he can in his physi cal body.
Some detail of all this we must endeavour to make clear later on; the point to be emphasized for the moment is debachanic this radiant sense, not only of the welcome absence of all evil and discord, but of the insistent, overwhelming presence of universal joy, is the first and most striking sensation experienced by him who enters upon the heaven-world.
Just as on first awakening in the morning one sometimes passes through a period of intensely delightful repose during planee one is conscious of the sense of enjoyment, though the mind is as yet inactive and the body hardly under control so the entity awakening into the heaven-world first passes through a more or less prolonged period of intense and gradually increasing bliss before his full activity of consciousness on that plane is reached.

Set deachanic a giveaway. Invisible Helpers by Charles Webster Leadbeater. It is only when we rise to the lofty levels of the buddhic plane that we find a condition common to, at any rate, all the planets of our chain.
It was that of a mother who had died perhaps twenty years ago, leaving behind her two boys to whom she was deeply attached. Such affection as this has in it no seed of the mental development; the forces which it sets in motion will never rise above the astral plane.
This book is excellent as a teaching tool for spiritual people. The result was very remarkable: One case which was not referred to in the account devachaic published, as it had no special connection with the phenomena of dreams, will serve as a useful illustration here.
This mental plane itself is a reflection of the Divine Mind — a storehouse of infinite extent from which the plabe enjoying heaven is able to draw just according to the power of his own thoughts and aspirations generated during the physical and astral life.
Its function is to enable the man devachaic respond to certain vibrations — not to shut him off from the others. Learn more about Amazon Prime. The disembodied —Their consciousness —The qualities necessary for the heaven-life —How a man first gains it. All these considerations, of course, only emphasize what has been so often insisted upon before — the necessity of the careful training of all psychics under a qualified instructor before it is possible to attach plame weight to their reports of what they see.
It was once described to us in the beginning as a sort of prolongation of all the happiest hours in a man’s life magnified a hundredfold in bliss; and though that definition leaves much to be desired as indeed all physical-plane definitions mustit still comes far nearer the truth than this idea of day and night.
In all these cases it was the touch of unselfish affection which gave them their heaven; indeed, apart from that, there was nothing in the activity of their personal lives which could have expressed itself on that plane. Too often the colour is dulled by the intermixture of selfish feelings, when the blue is mixed with browns and thus loses its pure brilliancy.
The Devachanic plane : its characteristics and inhabitants
All knowledge is theirs for the searching — all, that is, which does not transcend even this lofty plane; the past of the world is as open to them as the present; the indelible records of the memory of nature are ever at their disposal, and history, whether ancient or modern, unfolds itself before their eyes at their will.
Yet we should be wrong in thinking of that thought-cloud as devachanci limitation.
For anyone who finds this work, The Monad as interesting as I do, I would suggest that you check out the lecture tape series of Mark Prophet called Discourses on Cosmic Law.

The dominant characteristic of this subdivision may be said to be anthropomorphic religious devotion. On tracing this very interesting phenomenon to its source, it was found that in one case the son had grown [page 49] up into an ordinary man of business — not specially evil in any way, but by no means spiritually-minded — while the other had become a man of high unselfish aspiration, and of considerable refinement and culture.

It is a realm of nature. It would seem that the Adept is, as it were, so highly charged with the influences which sustain and strengthen, that any thought which brings into increased activity a channel of communication with him sends no current towards him, as it ordinarily would, but simply gives a wider opening through which the great ocean of his love finds vent.

His affection for these relatives was very deep, yet his thoughts were more occupied in adoration of the Christ, though his conception of his deity was so material that he imaged him as constantly changing kaleidoscopically backwards and forwards between the form of a man and that of the lamb bearing the flag which we often see represented in church window.
By this time it will have become apparent why it was impossible to devote a section of this paper to the scenery of the mental plane, as was done in the case of the astral; for in point of fact the mental world has no scenery except such as each individual chooses to make for himself by his thought — unless indeed we take into account the fact that the vast numbers of entities who are continually passing before him are themselves objects in many cases of the most transcendent beauty.
