F, G, H


Fifth principle Mind - the intelligent thinking principle which differentiates the human kingdom from the animal kingdom.


Fire (by Friction) - Electricity animating the atoms of matter, or the substance of the solar system, resulting in the "spheroidal form of all manifestation. The innate heat of all spheres. Differentiation of all atoms one from another."


Fire (Electric) - Electricity demonstrating as vitality or the will-to-be of some Entity, and manifesting as "Abstract Being, Darkness and Unity."


Fire (Solar) - Electricity animating forms or congeries of atoms, and resulting in Coherent groups, the radiation from all groups, or the magnetic interaction of these groups, the synthesis of form; cosmic mental fire; the sumtotal of the sparks of mind, the fires of the mental bodies and the animating principle of the evolving units of the human race in the three worlds; solar fire is dual. It is the fire of matter or substance and the fire of mind blended. This makes man the six-pointed Star of Light, for each of these fires is triple.


Fohat Cosmic electricity. Primordial light. The universal propelling life force. Ceaseless destructive and constuctive power.


Forces Those energies which are limited and imprisoned within a form of any kind - a body, a plane, an organ, a centre; the energies are those streams of directed energy which  make impact upon these imprisoned forces from within a greater or more inclusive form, from a subtler plane, thus making contact with a grosser vibratory force. An energy is subtler and more potent than the force upon which it makes impact or establlishes contact; the force is less potent but it is anchored. In these last two words you have the key to the problem of the relationship of energies. (see Energy)


Form - Electricity on the monadic plane demonstrates as the first manifestation of form, as that which causes forms to cohere. Matter (electrified "fire by friction") and the electric fire of spirit meet and blend, and form appears. Form is the result of the desire for existence, hence the dynamic fireof Will is transmuted into the burning fire of Desire.


Glamour Refers to the world of emotional being and of desire, in which all forms dwell; a distortion of the turth and a faulty reflection of reality; all the aspects of those deceptions, illusions, misunderstandings and misinterpretations which confront the aspirant at every step of their way until they achieve unity. The cause of glamour is primarily based upon the sense of duality. Illusion or maya, specifically on the astral plane. The former refer to the mental and physical planes respectively. Glamour is astral energy colouring mental energy so that it distorts reality.


Globe An evolution within a "chain" period : seven globes to a chain. Earth is currently in her fourth "globe" period.


Gnosis Knowledge of God. The Mysteries of Being. Wisdom. Sophia.


God Deity or originating cause. The sum-total of all the states of consciousness within the solar system; the Macrocosm; the Universal Mind; the Absolute; the Unknown; the expression of the One Life which animates every form on the outer subjective plane; the Life in which we "live and move and have our being"; a new definition of God was given us when the Buddha taught that God was Light and showed us that way of illumination, and when Christ revealed to us that God was Love through His life and service on earth. A new Approach is on the Way, bringing us the next needed truth. See "Logos".


Goodwill Humanity's first attempt to express the Love of God; an expression of the second Ray of Love-Wisdom; a principle which conceals and contains the hidden purpose of the Logos.


Group A living, functioning Entity having form, personality, soul and purpose in objective; the sum of the quality, consciousness and awareness of those unitary lives of which it is composed.


Gunas (3) The three divisions of matter: Tamas (inertia), rajas (activity) and Sattva (Harmony).


Guru Spiritual teacher. A Master in metaphysical and ethical doctrines.


Heart An aspect of pure reason; usually considered the organ of pure love but - from the angle of the esoteric sciences - love and reason are synonymous terms, found to be not only the engine which circulates the life fluids, but also the generator of a certain type of intelligent essence which is the positive factor in the life of the cell.


Hierarchy A place of fusion of all souls upon the higher levels of the mental plane; a meeting place of energies; a state of consciousness with the life aspect, Shamballa, at the center and the circle of humanity constituting the emanating factor, the radiatory influence or the aura, whereby the other kingdoms in nature are evoked into responsive activity. Group of spiritual beings on the inner planes of the solar system who are the intelligent forces of nature and who control the evolutionary processes. Divided into 12 Hierarchies. The Occult Hierarchy or Masters of Wisdom, disciples and initiates are a reflection.


Humanity That evolution through which the Son or Soul aspect is to express itself most perfectly in this cosmic incarnation; that human Centre whose eternal mission is to bring light to all created lives. In Humanity the pairs of opposites blend and the three fires meet. Humanity is the best expression of the manasic principle, and a sheath for the life of God, as well as the individualized consciousness of the Logos. Humanity is the Prodigal and a great experiment in time and space.
