Evolution – Theosophy Style
You have to go down to go up
This explanation is applied to Human Evolution but please remember that everything in the Universe is evolving on the same principle.
In Theosophy, evolution is
spiritual as well as physical whereas
We start out as Spiritual Entities but you don’t get any experience for your evolution if you remain spirit. Spirit can’t get its hands dirty so you need a vehicle and in our case this is a physical body.
Spirit effectively descends into matter in the form of the human body it enters and then having gained experience (hopefully) will then rise out of it. The general idea is for us to evolve by continually dropping down into matter (taking physical form) and then coming back up again. This process is known as Involution and in Theosophy this is an integral part of evolution.
Of course progress will be made and this is on an upward spiral in which although we descend into matter, both our Spiritual Entities and even the physical bodies we inhabit will slowly evolve.
