THE KEYNOTES OF THE SEVEN RAYS AND THE WILL ASPECT


The keynotes of these 7 Rays are, therefore, as they constitute the revelation of seven Great Beings:

Initiation

Unification

Evolution,

Harmonization

Action

Causation and Expression.


These are the keynotes for humanity at its present point of evolutionary development. As these seven energies play upon the human consciousness to produce the Will aspect in advanced man, they produce Initiation, Vision, Education, Intuition, Liberation, Idealism, Organization.


These energies produce certain tendencies in humanity and lead to certain unavoidable events and definite forms of Being. Therefore, certain fundamental ideas must be borne in mind:


1. We are dealing with the EFFECT of the7 ray energies as they pour forth from one or other of the seven stars of the GREAT BEAR into our solar system. These energies are the life-quality of the 7 Great Beings, the PROTOTYPES of the planetary Logoi of the SACRED planets, seven in number. These latter are Their reflections in time and space, as the soul reflects the Monad where human beings are concerned.


2. Each of the seven rays expresses itself through THREE of the zodiacal constellations. The analogy (but not the correspondence) is that these three constellations are to the Life of one of these ray Beings WHAT THE THREE ASPECTS OF MONAD-SOUL-BODY are to a man. But, again, it is only an analogy. Analogy and correspondence are not the same. In the first case, there is a resemblance but not in detail. In the second, there is a practically identical expression, usually on a lower level.

3. These seven great Beings express Themselves in our solar system as the custodians of the Will aspect of Deity. Their effect is to convey into our solar system the energy of the will in its plan-making, form-building nature.


4. The nature of the will is undefinable for only the Monad responds to its impact, and only after the third initiation. (by 3rd initiation, He means the 3rd major initiation, which is the 5th.mdb) All that is possible to understand is the effect of the will as it makes its presence felt and the result of its expression, emphasized through the three constellations.


5. The constellations in three groups transmit the seven influences of the seven rays to our planet via the SUN. The following relationships are only those in connection with our EARTH. The flow of energy depends on the nature of the etheric web through which all transmission of energies occurs. See Diagram One and Two at the end of this excerpt for the lines of approach.


6. This diamond-shaped formation of the inter-related energies is the prototypal pattern behind the etheric network and is its final conditioning influence as far as our Earth is concerned. (The etheric web surrounding the Earth is made up of these squares. The Hierarchy urged disciples to form a group of three members and visualize the energy transmitted to each other. The purpose was to create two triangles out of the etheric web square. Eventually, when the web squares diminish, our planetary Logos may take a greater initiation. At this time, our planetary system is a non-sacred planet. Mdb)


7. These seven ray energies express the divine prototypal WILL in 7 forms as follows:

Ray I, The will to initiate, Ray II…The choice to unify, Ray III….the will evolve…Ray IV….The will to harmonize or relate, Ray V, The will to act, Ray VI…The will to cause, Ray VII, The will to express. When their full creative work is completed, there will emerge the SEED of the next solar system. This third solar system will express the divine will.


8. These seven ray aspects of the will are flowers in the Monad when souls have reached perfected expression through humanity.


9. Just as desire has produced our solar system (the “son of necessity “), there lies behind all the energies of the Heart of God and all the forces that have produced the manifested universe that is the result of DIVINE NEED. It is that synthetic something that stimulates cohesion and synthesis as the effect or final result of manifestation.

I am simply giving a preliminary indication of what emerges in the human consciousness after the third (MAJOR. Mdb) initiation….when the Monad becomes the object of the desired attainment. Thus, we approach these esoteric relations from two angles:

1. The relation of the three constellations to the rays expresses the quality of the Life of its Informing Entity, the Being Who is expressing Identity through one or other of the7 stars of the Great Bear or Ursa Major.

2. The three aspects of the will that the three constellations express and to which human beings will consciously respond after the 3rd initiation. These aspects are:

a. The choice which conditions and initiates.

b. The will which brings fulfillment

c. The will which conquers death.

We are dealing with universals symbolized for us in the huge aggregate of constellations with which our theme is concerned:


1. The 7 stars of Ursa Major are involved in an intricate relation with Ursa Minor and the Pleiades. This major triplicity of constellations has a peculiar relation to the One About Whom Naught Can Be Said. All that can be hinted at is that these three galaxies of stars are the 3 ASPECTS OF THAT ABSOLUTE MONAD, the Ineffable Cause of the seven solar systems, of which ours is one.


2. The 12 constellations of the zodiac, each with its inter-relations, form part of a triangle of energies. Each of these (four.mdb) triangles is a unit in itself, but in conjunction with the other triangles, forms part of that MAJOR QUATERNARY, which is the cosmic analogy of the quaternary of the One Life….SOUL and the DUAL PSYCHIC NATURE called in some of the esoteric books: KAMA-MANAS, PLUS THE VITAL NATURE. These four are the expression of the One Ineffable Cause.


3. Our unimportant solar system is yet a part of the sevenfold appearance of that same Essential.


4. Cause. Our solar system is a tiny reflection or replica of the 1, the 3, the 7, the 12. (this is the first time I learned of the 12. It usually is 1,3,7,10. Mdb) Because of that innate correspondence, it has within itself the capacity to respond to the energies emanating from this fountainhead of light and will. Our solar system is part of this vast whole, kept alive by its “grace” & Intentions.


5. COSMIC ENERGIES and TRANSFORMATION

Let us now get an idea of this stream of energies as they move from Ursa Major, as they are transmitted, through certain constellations to our solar system and thence, via the Sun to the seven sacred planets. These produce “transformations” on our non-sacred planet, the Earth, bringing it increasingly into line with the will aspect of divinity.



The Earth is one of the five non-sacred planets. Only four are listed as among the transfiguring agents. The darkened planets indicate the transmitting agents of the Forces, passed through the transformation process by the Sun.


The Sun and Moon are listed among the non-sacred planets as they are, in this instance BLINDS or veils. The origin of the hourglass is to be found in this diagram of the inflowing energies. The above chart can be used in connection with any of the7 rays but will involve other transmitting agents in the form of the appropriate three zodiacal constellations and their rulers.


The key to the whole process as far as the Earth is concerned is to be found in words: TRANSCENDING: The transcending cause.

TRANSMITTING: The zodiacal constellations.

TRANSFORMING: The Sun, The Soul.

TRANSFIGURING: The planets.


To these, I might add one word connected with the Earth and its humanity, which is allied to all the above. This word is TRANSLATED, for when the souls of just men are made perfect, a translation process takes place which lifts humanity off and away from the planet on to one or other of the seven cosmic Paths to which our seven initiations form the entering doors.


These macrocosmic and microcosmic diagrams contain the whole story of extension from the One into the Many and of the Many into the One.


We are dealing with the objectives of the One in. We live and move and have our being: The Planetary Logos, the Ancient of Days, the Lord of the world, Sanat Kumara, the Eternal Youth. He is the only One capable of responding to the sevenfold Emanating Cause, expressing Itself through the Great Bear.

The main chapter headings to this book provide the sequence in developing study: (1) The Zodiac and the Rays (2) The Nature of Esoteric Astrology (3) The Science of Triangles (4) The Sacred and Non-Sacred Planets (5) Three Major Constellations (6) The Three Crosses (7) The Rays, Constellations and Planets. ln addition there is an appendix which summarizes and tabulates many of the factors of fundamental importance to the study of esoteric astrology.


This is a book for the true occult student. It may appear to be too highly specialized for some; but every esoteric worker finds eventually that his work requires an understanding of the basic astrological factors which affect all relationships and all forms of life within the ethers of space, so that he may learn how to cooperate intelligently in the evolution of the whole by the right adjustment of the part within that whole; until eventually "the many are absorbed into the One".
