Before Evolution There Was Involution

by Marguerite dar Boggia


Charles Darwin developed a theory of evolution, which changed the way we understood our place in the world; BUT he neglected to mention the involutionary arc.  Before there is evolution, there is involution.

The Ageless Wisdom teaches that the Involutionary arc is the term applied to the first part of the evolutionary process. It covers the path of DESCENT or the coming down of SPIRIT into ever denser matter until the lowest point is reached, the point of densest concretion. The latter half of the process is called evolutionary and marks the ASCENT or return of Spirit to its emanating source, plus the gains of the evolutionary process.

Spirit is the electrical reality of  "Life" itself. The consciousness of man has to be fully awakened before one can ever understand that great energizing something of which the other types of energy are but expressions.  

The lives of Spirit that descend until the lowest point of densest matter is reached are called "ELEMENTALS".  Nature itself is composed of them for no entity anywhere can separate itself from the "Boundless All".  Although "elementals" is a generalizing term, a better use of the term would signify beings arising from the first in and of the seven Elements of Nature before other and more advanced evolution came into manifestation.  The names of the classes of these elementals are too numerous to mention. They are called nature sprites, faeries, the sylphs of air, the undines of water, the salamanders of fire, the gnomes of earth, etc.  When the elemental lives reach the densest element, to wit: the mineral kingdom, then they will be ascending on the evolutionary arc. They are then called "Devas".  The Church calls the devas, "angels". These lives gradually evolve from the mineral kingdom to the next kingdoms, to wit: the vegetable, animal and human kingdoms and then to the three superhuman kingdoms until they return to their Source: the "One Life".  This is a picture taken on 10/15/12 by NASA of what appears to be an angel going towards the Sun. It is estimated to be twice the size of the earth.

The whole universe is guided, controlled and animated by an endless series of  Hierarchies of sentient Beings.  Each has its mission to perform. They vary in their respective sizes and degrees of consciousness. Some function as Elementals, some as Hierarchies of Angels or Devas, (their size can be twice the size of the Earth or more); some as Gods, some as rivers of Lives vitalizing galaxies, solar systems, planets and all the kingdoms of nature. 

Evolution means the unfolding, the unwrapping of what is infolded WITHIN.   In all cases, elemental beings are UNCONSCIOUS GOD-SPARKS. Divinity is as much at the heart of every elemental being as it is at the heart of a god; But until that  core of divinity is evolved forth into manifestation, so that the entity is thereafter governed by the spiritual FLAME within as an Ego or Soul, it is said to be without a spiritual soul.

As a human being is composed of all of the great elements: Fire, Air, Water, Earth, and Ether, the Elementals which belong respectively to these elements, feel attracted to a human being  by reason of their co-essence. That element which predominates in a certain constitution will be the ruling element throughout the life. For instance, if an individual has a preponderance of the earthly gnomic element, the gnomes will lead him toward assimilating metals--money, wealth and so on.

              Many beautiful legends and stories have been written about the Elemental. Some of these romances or stories have even described the union of human beings, ensouled entities, with the beautiful and in some cases mechanically wise, but nevertheless 'soulless,' Elemental beings of the Cosmos.  (As an instance cf. the mystical legend Undine by De la Motte Fouque.)

Actually the Elements of the Cosmos are seven, not four. Four are manifested, that is, possessing  a  form, a vehicle or a body;) but there are also three higher or formless classes. Consequently, some of these Elements composing the very fabric and structure of the universe, are spiritually, vibrationally high, and contrariwise, some of them are very gross and material. There are also those of an intermediate character; and the Elementals that spring from each one of these Elements partake in each instance of the character of the Mother-Substance out of and from which they are born.

The Elementals, when properly understood, are the unevolved life-atoms of the several cosmic Elements; and these beings have been alluded to by mediaeval European writers and by the mystical and initiated writers of other countries, under different names.

What originates these life-atoms from the cosmic Elements? THEY ARE 'THOUGHTS'---for thoughts are ENSOULED ENERGIES; thoughts of the super-gods; thoughts of the gods; thoughts of the Daimones;  (godlike Beings) of the Heroes; of Men;  Every thought is an ensouled energy. As Nature is divided into seven Cosmic substances, all classes of beings can trace their origin back respectively to one or to another of these seven Mother Substances.

The Tibetan Master, D.K.  took his Fifth major Initiation in 1875. He worked through his amanuensis, Alice A. Bailey, dictating to her using mental telepathy. They wrote about twenty books together. He suggested that the best way for a human being to evolve, is through "study, meditation and service". For those eager to evolve more rapidly, I offer three pages weekly online of the Ageless Wisdom Teachings as was known by Pythagoras and Plato. And it is FREE.  That is my method of Service.  If you are interested in expanding your consciousness, and evolving, you can contact me through my website, which I created at the age of 90. It is: www.FreePythagorasTeachings.com/
