Until he has learnt to make allowance for this influence, he will be likely to consider as most prominent in the man at whom he is looking just those characteristics to which he finds himself most ready to respond; but with a little careful practice he soon frees himself from the distortion produced by this personal equation, and is able to leadveater clearly and accurately. It will be aeons yet before that lesson is perfectly assimilated, yet even this first glimpse of it is of enormous importance to the ego, and its effect on the astral body is worthy of special notice.
These no longer move in whirling clouds, but are arranged in great concentric shells, yet penetrated everywhere by radiations of living light always pouring forth from him as a centre.

WE have endeavored to illustrate the immediate effect of some of the sudden emotions which affect the outer vehicles of man, and to explain that, quickly as they pass, they are not without permanent results to the soul within. How is it, it invisivle be asked, that his face and limbs are perceptible to us, since we know that the astral matter of the vehicle which we are employing cannot respond to purely physical vibrations?
Man, Visible and Invisible by Charles W. Leadbeater
Such a man during life has a dim consciousness in his astral body while asleep, and after death he is very fully conscious and active on the lower astral sub planes. Naturally enough, that part of the faculty which usually opens first is the lowest, the nearest to the physical, and a man may often for very many years be able to see only the denser kinds of astral matter.
It will appear upon examination that pride, anger and selfishness have altogether disappeared, and that the remaining colors have not only so expanded as to fill the whole oval, but have also so improved in tone as to give quite a different impression. Such a moment is that chosen for our illustration in Plate VII, and from this, as we shall presently see, a good deal of information about the man may be obtained. Another point which should be noticed is the irregularity of the outline of this astral body, the generally blurred effect, and the manner in which the colors are arranged.
So, in the course of his many lives, man develops within himself many qualities, some good, some evil; but while all good development is steadily stored up and accumulated within the causal body, that which is evil can express itself only through the lower vehicles, and so is comparatively impermanent. We shall now proceed to the consideration of the vehicles of the more developed man who possesses all these various qualities to a much greater extent, but has them well balanced, so that each supports and strengthens the other, instead of dominating or stifling it.
Yet this higher matter also is not simple but complex; and we find that it also exists in a series of states of its own, corresponding very fairly to the states of physical matter which we visigle solid, liquid, gaseous, or etheric.
The reply is that what is visible to us is not his physical body but its counterpart in astral matter; and we find that even when the man abandons his dense earthly form, whether temporarily in sleep or permanently in death, this counterpart still preserves the same appearance.
The outrush of the Divine influence which we saw in Plate XXI is enormously intensified here, for this man has become an almost perfect channel for the life and the power of the Logos.
No psychic condition visibe more infectious than this feeling of depression; its vibrations radiate in all directions and introduce their slackening, deadening effects into every astral body within reach, whether the ego to which that astral body belongs is in incarnation or not. The Health-Aura in Disease. Occult advancement proclaims itself not only by these colors, but also by the greater luminosity of the various bodies, and by their increased size and more definite outline.
All the four forms of manifestation which we noted in connection with the impulse of affection are also observable here – the whirling, gleaming coils, the rapidly-vibrating horizontal lines, the outer film, and the wisps of cloud – and their signification is precisely the same, substituting everywhere religious feeling for affection.
He has a fair proportion of affection and adaptability, though not of very high order; but the amount of sensuality manifested is much above the average, and deceit and selfishness are also very prominent. To aid us the better to comprehend this, let us turn to Plate IV. THE first point which must be clearly comprehended is the wonderful complexity of the world around us – the fact that it includes enormously more than comes within the range of ordinary vision.
Man Visible and Invisible
Temporary changes may take place, for the finer matter may be moulded by a passing thought; but as soon as the pressure of that constraining thought is withdrawn, it slips back again into its usual shape. Just in the same way thought appears to be an instantaneous process; but it is not, for every thought has to go through the stages which I have described.
This rises constantly from the causal body, no matter how the lower man may be occupied on the physical plane: The morning sunlight has changed into noonday glory. The Planes of Nature. Gregg rated it it was amazing May 01, Once more the stanza says it for us: The invisuble, or almost the whole, of the matter in an astral body may be temporarily forced by a sudden rush of passion to vibrate at a certain rate; ,eadbeater all of it except that to which the vibration is natural will fall back into its ordinary rate when the force is removed.
There is one point in connection with the junction which we have been trying to describe which requires further explanation. There is more than a mere correspondence; there is an intense attraction. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. His astral body will usually show a broad band of scarlet as one of its prominent features, as we see in Plate XVI. What His Bodies Show Us.
Leadbeater went on to write over 69 books and pamphlets that examined in detail the invidible side of life as well as maintain regular speaking engagements. Naturally, exactly the same course is followed in the case of any other emotion, whether it be good or bad; and thus we see the clear manifestation in matter of the moral law, that every time we yield to a passion of anr kind, we make it a little more difficult for ourselves to resist its next attack; while every successful effort at its repression makes the next victory a little easier.
Theosophy : Man Visible and Invisible by C.W. Leadbeater
It will be noticed that in the band corresponding to the mineral kingdom we have the full width developed only in the denser part of the physical plane, and that in the part of the band which corresponds to etheric physical matter the band grows steadily narrower as we approach the higher planes. IN order to understand the formation of the soul in man there is another great factor which must be taken into account. It appears to be unable of itself to descend lower than the Buddhic plane, and there it hovers like a mighty cloud, waiting for an opportunity of affecting a junction with the second outpouring, which is slowly rising to meet it.
Jun 09, Jualari added it Shelves: Our diagram enables us to see what was the point at issue; and furthermore, it shows us, curiously enough, that both parties were right, and that if they had only clearly understood the matter there need have been no schism at all.
This is an illustration of a confirmed miser, and naturally so extreme a case is not very common; but a large number of people seem to have some of the elements of the miser in their nature, and show them by an intensification of the color of avarice and by one or two such bars in the upper part of the astral body, though few are so completely, confined as is this specimen.
Man Visible And Invisible
The case selected for illustration is of course an extreme one, and such a condition does not usually last more than a few minutes. A man who falls asleep each night with the definite intention in his mind of doing a certain piece of work, will assuredly go and attempt to carry out his intention as soon as he is freed from his physical body; but having done his best in connection with that particular case, he is almost certain to let the fog close round him once more, simply because he has for ages been unaccustomed to initiate a fresh line of action when functioning apart from the physical brain.
The Greek Church, on the other hand, insisted absolutely on the distinctness of the Three Manifestations, and quite rightly protested against any theory of a procession from the First Manifestation through the Second such as would be typified in our diagram if we drew a diagonal line through the First, Second, and Third.
