<5>When the operative power of the
tama guna is first
released and the memory or the feeling of "I
have done" (Chitta)
arises, the first stage of the ethereal factor or fine ether forms.
Then there will be cruder forms of ether, until the formation of
air, and so on.
<6>This might be easier illustrated by the
more visible elements, such as liquid and solid. There are thin
liquids which flow easily, and there are liquids in thicker forms
until solid factors are reached. <7>Even in the solid state,
there are soft solid forms and very hard solid factors, with
infinite solid varieties in-between.
<8>It is the same for infinite different
levels of consciousness from
down to the very crude consciousness. <9>In fact, when the
consciousness becomes very crude it indeed becomes flesh and the
person identifies himself as his body.
<10>This analogy goes on and is true about
all things in the universe. There are infinite levels of
sentient force (satva
mutative force (raja
static force (tama
guna), ethereal factor, etc.
<11>So we have to create this ability not to
see everything in black and white but always as an infinite spectrum
<12>and still these infinite ranges are changing in time (I-Ching).
<13>Another point is that although the
universe or its worlds are divided into seven levels, <14>in
the spiritual Hierarchy (Hierarchy in the Kingdom Of

But before man was created there were two beings in this state.

Grace. The fire of
Grace burns all
impurities and a person becomes a pure
God. Then you will create
Love, Compassion, and Mercy toward All. You will do good and become
a giver as an example for others to be good (God).
You do not have to know much detail and
explanation if it is not your nature as such. But Love
God with all your Heart,
Mind, and Spirit, and
Divine Path. This will win His
Grace and your liberation is assured.
