A Treatise on Cosmic Fire
from Alice Baily & Djwhal Khul
|Thought Elementals and Fire Elementals
Physical Plane Elementals
It should be remembered that the devas we have been considering are the originators of impulse, and the manipulators of energy in their own degree, and on
their own plane. In connection with them are to be found, therefore, the recipients of force, or the multitude of lives of an elemental nature which form the sumtotal
of the matter of a plane. These are swept on waves of energy, through the impulse of the Breath, and as the result of  vibratory action, into all forms as we
know them on the physical plane. Therefore, in connection with manifestation on the physical plane the devas may be divided into three groups:
The transmitters of the will of God, the originators of activity in deva substance. These are the greater builders in their various groups.
The manipulators of the initiated energy. These are the myriads of workers with force who transmit the impulse in their turn to the elemental essence. They are
the builders of lesser degree, but are on the evolutionary arc as are the first group.
The recipients of force, the sum total of the living substance of a plane. These lives are passive in the hands of the builders of greater degree.
The three groups to be considered are:
The elementals of liquid matter
The elementals of gaseous matter
We must bear in mind as we study these three groups that we are not concerned with the transmitters, but with the manipulators and with the recipients of energy.
The Elementals of Densest Matter
These are the workers and builders which are concerned with the tangible and objective part of all manifestation. In their totality they literally form that which can
be touched, seen, and contacted physically by man. In considering these matters we must never dissociate the various groups in our minds in a too literal sense,
for they all interpenetrate and blend, in the same manner as man's physical body is compounded of dense, liquid, gaseous, and etheric matter. Diversity,
producing a unity, is everywhere to be seen; this fact must constantly be borne  in mind by the occult student when studying the subhuman forms of
existence. There is a distinct danger in all tabulations, for they tend to the forming of hard and fast divisions, whereas unity pervades all.
Among the manipulating devas of the lowest level of the dense physical plane are to be found certain subterranean forms of existence, of which hints are to be
found in the ancient and occult books. There is to be found in the very bowels of the earth, an evolution of a peculiar nature, with a close resemblance to the
human. They have bodies of a peculiarly gross kind, which might be regarded as distinctly physical as we understand the term. They dwell in settlements, or
groups, under a form of government suited to their needs in the central caves several miles below the crust of the earth. Their work is closely connected with the
mineral kingdom, and the "agnichaitans" of the central fires are under their control. Their bodies are constituted so as to stand much pressure, and they are not
dependent upon as free a circulation of air as man is, nor do they resent the great heat to be found in the earth's interior. Little can here be communicated anent
these existences, for they are connected with the lesser vital portions of the physical body of the planetary Logos, finding their microcosmic correspondence in the
feet and legs of a man. They are one of the factors which make possible the revolutionary progressive activity of a planet.
Allied with them are several other groups of low class entities, whose place in the scheme of things can only be described as having relation to the grosser
planetary functions. Little is gained by enlarging upon these lives and their work; it is not possible for man in any way to contact them, nor would it be desirable.
When they have pursued their evolutionary cycle, they will take their place in a later cycle in the ranks of certain deva bodies that are related to the animal
It is commonly supposed that all the fairies, gnomes, elves, and like nature spirits are to be found solely in etheric matter, but this is not so. They are to be found
in bodies of gaseous and liquid substance likewise, but the mistake has arisen for the reason that the basis of all that which can be objectively seen is the etheric
structure, and these little busy lives frequently protect their dense physical activities through the agency of glamor, and cast a veil over their objective
manifestation. When etheric vision is present then they can be seen, for the glamor, as we understand it, is only a veil over that which is tangible.
Students must at this juncture remember that all dense physical forms, whether of a tree, an animal, a mineral, a drop of water, or a precious stone, are in
themselves elemental lives constructed of living substance by the aid of living manipulators, acting under the direction of intelligent architects. It will immediately
become apparent why it is not possible in any way to tabulate in connection with this particular lowest group. A beautiful diamond, a stately tree, or a fish in the
water are but devas after all. It is the recognition of this essential livingness which constitutes the basic fact in all occult investigation, and is the secret of all
beneficent magic. It is not my purpose, therefore, to deal more specifically with these lowest forms of divine life, except to impart two facts, and thus give indication
of the solution of two problems which have oft disturbed the average student; these are, first, the problem as to the purpose of all reptilian life, and, secondly, the
specific connection of the bird evolution with the deva kingdom.
DJWHAL KHUL AND ALICE BAILY
Djwhal Khul is a Tibetan Master of the ancient esoteric religion. He is a member of the 'Brotherhood' of Mahatmas, who are the
spiritual guides of mankind and the guardians of ancient cosmological and metaphysical teachings. These esoteric teachings form
the origin of all the world's great philosophies, mythologies and spiritual traditions. As a Mahatma, Djwhal Khul is working mentally
for the furthering of spiritual evolution on our planet, using his highly developed powers of meditation, or siddhis. At the same time,
he leads an outwardly normal life among ordinary human beings. Members of the esoteric Brotherhood were said to be the hidden
founders of the Theosophical Society in 1875.
Early in the 1920's, Alice A. Bailey (1880-1949), began writing what she was receiving telepathically from a Master later to be reveiled
as Djwhal Khul as spelled by her. This Master, she said, was the one responsible for the revelation of esoteric truth in our time.
