Disease, when not of a group origin, or the result of planetary karma or based on accident, takes its rise in the activity or the inactivity of the centers. The centers (called chakras) are focal points of force within the etheric body. The invisible, subtle, etheric body is composed entirely of lines of force and of points.  Where these lines of force cross each other, they form centers of energy Where many such lines of force cross each other, you have a larger center of energy, and where great streams of energy meet and cross, as they do in the head and  up the spine, you have seven major centers. There are twenty-one lesser centers and forty-nine smaller centers.1 The etheric body substances the dense physical body.

The centers govern the endocrine system which, in its turn, controls the seven major areas of the dense physical body and is responsible for the correct functioning of the entire organism, producing both physiological and psychological effects. This glandular system is a replica in miniature of the septenary constitution of the universe and the medium of expression and the instrument of contact for the seven ray forces2. The seven ray forces are the energies that emanate from the seven Deities that are called the seven Spirits before the Throne of God.2a

The glands constitute a great relating system in the body. They bring all parts of the physical vehicle into relation with each other.  They also relate the man to the etheric body, both individual and planetary, and likewise to the bloodstream, the carrier of the life principle to all parts of the dense physical body.  There are consequently four major agents of distribution to be found in the physical body. They are all complete in themselves, all contributory to both the functional and the organic life of the body, all closely interrelated and all producing both physiological and psychological results according to their potency, the response of the centers to the higher inflow, the point in evolution achieved and the free expression, or the reverse, of the incoming energies.  These four agents of distribution of energy are:

One: The etheric vehicle itself.  This with its myriads of lines of force and of energy, the incoming and the outgoing energies, its responsiveness to energy impacts coming from the environment as well as from the inner spiritual individual and the subtle bodies, UNDERLIES the entire physical body.  In it are to be found the seven major centers as focal points of reception and of distribution.  They are the recipients of seven types of energy, and they distribute these seven energies through the entire little human system.

Two: The nervous system and its various interlocking directorates. This is a relatively tangible network of energies and forces which are the outer expression of the inner, vital, dynamic network of the etheric body and the millions of NADIS or the PROTOTYPE OF THE NERVES, which underlie the more substantial body.  These nerves and plexi and their many ramifications are the negative aspects of the positive energies: the nadis, which condition or are attempting to condition the individual.

Three: The endocrine system. This is the tangible and exoteric expression of the activity of the vital body and  its seven centers.  The seven centers of force are to be found in the same region where the seven major glands are located, and each center of force provides, according to the esoteric teachings, the power and the life of the corresponding gland which is, in fact, its externalization.

These three systems are very closely related to each other and constitute an interlocking directorate of energies and forces which are essentially vital, galvanic, dynamic and creative.  They are basically interdependent, and upon them the entire interior health of the physical organism depends.  They are responsive first to one or other of the bodies (emotional or mental), then to the integrated personality and its ray, and finally to the soul ray as it begins to assume control.  They are, in reality, responsible for the production of the physical body and -- after birth -- they condition its psychological quality, and this in its turn produces the developing physical individual. They are the agents for the three divine aspects of all manifestation: LIFE, QUALITY, APPEARANCE.

Four:  The blood stream This is the carrier of the life principle and of the combined energies and forces of the three above systems.  This will be an idea of some novelty to the orthodox. The relationship of the circulatory system of the blood to the nervous system has not been as yet, adequately developed in modern medicine.  Much, however, has been done to relate the glandular system to the blood.

Only when these four interrelated systems are viewed as one integrated whole and as the four aspects of one vital circulatory system, will the truth emerge.  Only as they are acknowledged to be the four major distributing agents of the combined rays of the individual man, will the true nature of material phenomena be grasped.  It might be added here that:

1. The etheric vehicle from the circulatory angle, is governed

by the Moon, as it veils the planet Vulcan.

2. The nervous system is ruled by Venus.

3. The endocrine system is governed by Saturn.

4. The blood stream is governed by Neptune.

These four systems are in reality the manifestation of the four aspects of matter in its lowest or purely physical expression.  There are other aspects of expression of the fundamental substance, but these are the four of greatest importance.3

Each of the great rays has a form of teaching truth to humanity which is its unique contribution, and in this way develops an individual by a system or technique, which is qualified by the ray quality and is therefore specific and unique.  Let me point out to you the modes of this group teaching; 4

Ray I

Higher Expression: The science of statesmanship, of government.

Lower Expression:  Modern diplomacy and politics.

Ray II             

Higher Expression: The process of initiation as taught by the hierarchy of adepts.

Lower Expression:  Religion

Ray III            

Higher Expression:  Means of communication or interaction. The radio, telephone, telegraph, the internet, and the power to travel. 

Lower Expression:  The use and spread of money and gold.

Ray IV

Higher Expression:  The Masonic work, based on the formation of the hierarchy, and related to the second ray.

Lower Expression:  Architectural construction. Modern city planning.

Ray V             

Higher Expression:  The science of the soul. Esoteric psychology.

Lower Expression:   Modern educational systems and mental science.

Ray VI            

Higher Expression:   Christianity and diversified religions.

(Notice here relation to Ray II).

Lower Expression: Churches and organized religions.

Ray VII          

Higher Expression:  All forms of white magic.

Lower Expression:   Spiritualism of "phenomena."5


Every human being is basically an expression of five ray forces:

                        1. The ray of the soul.

                        2. The ray of the personality.

                        3. The ray governing the mental body.

                        4. The ray governing the astral (emotional) equipment.

                        5. The ray of the physical nature. 6

When the fourth ray and the seventh ray come into incarnation together, we shall have a most peculiar period of revelation and of light-bringing. It is said of this time that, then, "the temple of the Lord will take on an added glory and the Builders will rejoice together." This will be the high moment of the Masonic work, spiritually understood. The Lost Word will then be recovered and uttered for all to hear, and the Master will arise and walk among His builders in the full light of the glory which shines from the east. 7 We are destined to experience the "Golden Age" in the Age of Aquarius. 8
