As time goes on this will be proved decidedly, and each Ray worker and server will be found to render his service along peculiar and specific lines. These indicate for him the line of least resistance and, consequently, of the greatest efficiency.

The seven Ray types will work in the following ways, which I am stating very briefly for to do more than that might limit the expression of those who do not know enough to be discriminating as to their characteristics, and might unduly qualify and colour the experience of those servers who recognise (as some already do) their Ray. They might, with entirely good intention, seek to force the Ray qualities of their Souls into dominance before the Personality Ray is adequately known or controlled. Other servers frequently confuse the two Rays and deem their Soul Ray to be of a particular type, whereas it is only their Personality Ray to which they predominantly conform, and by which they are pre-eminently governed.

Ray I

Servers on this Ray, if they are trained disciples, work through what might be called the imposition of the Will of God upon the minds of men. This they do through the powerful impact of ideas upon the minds of men, and the emphasis of the governing principles which must be assimilated by humanity. These ideas, when grasped by the aspirant bring about two developments. First, they initiate a period of destruction and of a breaking up of that which is old and hindering, and this is later followed by the clear shining forth of the new idea and its subsequent grasping by the minds of intelligent humanity. These ideas embody great principles, and constitute the New Age ideas. These servers, therefore, work as God's destroying angels, destroying the old forms, but nevertheless, behind it all lies the impetus of love.

With the average aspirant, however, who is on the first Ray, the activity is not so intelligent. He grasps the idea that is needed by the race, but he will seek to impose it primarily as his idea, something which he has seen and grasped and which impatiently he seeks to impose upon his fellow men for their good, as he sees it. He inevitably destroys as fast as he builds, and finally destroys himself. Many worthy aspirants and disciples in training for service at this time work in this sad way.

Ray II

Servers on this Ray ponder, meditate upon and assimilate the new ideas associated with the Plan, and by the power of their attractive love, they gather together those who are at that point in their evolution where they can respond to the measure and rhythm of that Plan. They can select, and train those who can "carry" the idea deeper into the mass of humanity. We should not forget that the work of the Hierarchy at this time, and the task of the new Group of World Servers is primarily associated with ideas. The disciples and servers on the second Ray are "busy building habitations for those dynamic entities whose function it has ever been to charge the thoughts of men and so to usher in that new and better age which will permit the fostering of the Souls of men." By magnetic, attractive, sympathetic understanding, and the use use of slow action, based on love, do the servers on this Ray work.


The servers on this Ray have a special function at this time in stimulating the intellect of humanity, sharpening it and inspiring it. They work, manipulating ideas so as to make them more easy of comprehension by the mass of intelligent men and women who are to be found in the world ar this time and whose intuition is not yet awakened. Ideas are taken by the third Ray aspirant, as they emerge from the elevated consciousness of Those for whom the first Ray works and are rendered attractive by the second Ray worker (attractive in the esoteric sense) and adapted to the immediate need and rendered vocal by the force of the intellectual third Ray types. In this lies a hint for many of the third Ray personalities to be found working in various fields of service at this time.

Ray IV

This Ray is not in incarnation at the time and therefore few fourth Ray Egos are available in world service. There are, however, many fourth Ray personalities and they can learn much by the study of the work of the New Group of World Servers. The major task of the fourth Ray aspirant is to harmonise the new ideas with the old, so that there can be no dangerous gap or break. They are those who bring about a "righteous compromise", and adapt the new and the old so that the true pattern is preserved. They are engaged with the bridging process, for they are the true intuitives and have a capacity for the art of synthesis so that their work most definitely can help in bringing forward a true presentation of the divine picture.
