Subsidiary law of the Law of Attraction, 2nd Cosmic Law

1172: “8. The Law of Gravitation.  This law is for the non-occult student the most puzzling and confusing of all the laws.  It shows itself in one aspect as the power, and the stronger urge that a more vital life may have upon the lesser, such as the power of the spirit of the Earth (the planetary Entity, not the planetary Logos) to hold all physical forms to itself and prevent their “scattering.”  This is due to the heavier vibration, the greater accumulative force, and the aggregated tamasic lives of the body of the planetary Entity.  This force works upon the negative, or lowest, aspect of all physical forms.  The Law of Gravitation shows itself also in the response of the soul of all things to the greater Soul in which the lesser finds itself.  This law, therefore, affects the two lowest forms of divine life, but not the highest.  It emanates in the first instance from the physical sun and the heart of the Sun.  The final synthesising forces which might be regarded as forms of spiritual gravitational activity are, nevertheless, not so, but are due to the working of another law, emanating from the central spiritual Sun.  The one is purely systemic, the other a cosmic law.”

65 – 66: “The stilling of the mind depends upon the law of rhythm.  If you are vibrating in many directions and registering thoughts from all sides, this law will be unable to touch you.  Balance and poise must be restored before equilibrium can be reached.  The law of vibration and the study of atomic substance are closely intertwined.  When more is known about these atoms and their action, reaction and inter-action, then people will control their bodies scientifically, synchronizing the laws of vibration and of rhythm.  They are the same and yet unlike.  They are phases of the law of gravitation.  The earth is itself an entity which, by the force of will, holds all things to itself.”

21: “The Law of Karma is not the Law of Retribution, as one would surmise as one reads the current books upon the subject; that is but one aspect of the working of the Law of Kama.  The Law of Cause and Effect is not to be understood as we now interpret it.  There is, to illustrate, a law called the Law of Gravitation, which has long imposed itself upon the minds of men; such a law exists, but it is only an aspect of a greater law, and its power can be, as we know, relatively offset, for each time that we see an aeroplane soaring overhead, we see a demonstration of the offsetting of this law by mechanical means, symbolising the ease with which it can be surmounted by human beings.  If they could but realise it, they are learning the ancient technique of which the power to levitate is one of the easiest and simplest initial exercises.”

246: “Therefore, the withering of a flower, death from old age in an animal or a tree, and the many diseases of the human being are all brought about by the pull of the powerful life of the planet, speaking esoterically; this is an aspect of what is called, erroneously, the Law of Gravitation.  This law is – again speaking esoterically – an aspect of the Law of Return, which governs the relation of a unit of life in form to its emanating source.”

15: “The law of gravitation operates on astral matter, and if it were possible for it to be left entirely undisturbed it would probably settle into concentric shells. But the earth is in perpetual motion, both of rotation and revolution, and all kinds of influences and forces are continually rushing about, so this ideal condition of rest is never attained, and there is much intermingling.”
