THE RAYS IN DETAIL
Each of the great Rays has a form of teaching truth to humanity which is its unique contribution, and in this way develops man 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:
THE RAYS: HIGHER & LOWER EXPRESSIONS
Higher Expression: The science of statesmanship, of government.
Lower Expression: Modern diplomacy and politics.
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 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.
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 the relation to Ray II.)
Lower Expression: Churches and organised religions.
Ray VII --------
Higher Expression: All forms of white magic.
Lower Expression: Spiritualism of "phenomena."
The planes or manifested spheres of expression are influenced in manifestation in a numerical order:
Will or Power
Plane of Divinity
Plane of the Monad
Plane of Spirit, Atma
Plane of the Intuition
The Soul is the principle of sentiency, underlying all outer manifestation, pervading all forms, and constituting the consciousness of God Himself. When the Soul, immersed in substance, is simply sentiency, it produces through its evolutionary interplay an addition, and we find emerging quality and capacity to react to vibration and to environment. This is the Soul as it expresses itself in all the subhuman kingdoms in nature.
