Evolution

 

©2001 by George A. Boyd

We need to understand that evolution is a multidimensional process. We tend to focus on physical evolution, that produces change in the forms of living organisms. But we should also understand the other six types of evolution. These are shown below.

  1. Physical Evolution - intraspecies and transspecies changes mediated by mutation over time; adaptive changes allow individuals to survive environmental changes, those that cannot survive, die out

  2. Etheric Evolution - the purification of the nadis, meridians and chakras of the etheric body, mirroring the inner development of the Soul

  3. Emotional (Astral) Evolution - the inner maturation of the individual from self-centered, narcissistic absorption to the ability to love and care for others

  4. Mental Evolution - the ability to use successively deeper mental faculties of the Conscious, Subconscious, Metaconscious and Superconscious levels of the mind

  5. Volitional Evolution - the ability to express progressively higher octaves of the will

  6. Spiritual Evolution - the purification of the path of the Nada leading to the refinement of the spirit and its ultimate salvation, with the Divine who set it forth into creation

  7. Essential (or Noetic) Evolution - the transformation of the ensouling entity from nodal point to nodal point. Affects evolution types 2-6

We encourage seekers to meditate on the different varieties of evolution and to intuit what is the result of this ongoing process. In this way, you may be able to trace the outlines of the Great Plan of Evolution that occurs in all octaves of life.
