The Egoic or Soul Ray begins to make its presence actively felt, via the Astral body, as soon as alignment has been achieved. The process is as follows:

a. It plays on the Astral body externally.

b. It stimulates it internally to greater size, colour and quality.

c. It brings it and all parts of the physical life into activity and under control.

All the above propositions could be summed up in the statement that the Personality Ray induces a separative attitude and causes a detachment from the group of Souls of which the personality is an externalisation, and a constituent attachment to the form side of manifestation. The Egoic Ray induces group consciousness and detachment from external forms, causing attachment to the life side of manifestation and to the subjective whole. The Monadic Ray has an effect which can be understood only after man has taken the third initiation.
