What I have to say concerning each Ray and its work with the individuals upon it in integrating the personalities, will be conveyed by means of a formula of integration. This will itself be divided into two parts, dealing with those processes in time and space which bring about the integration of the personality. The words, covering the process in every case, are:

Alignment – Crisis – Light – Revelation - Integration

Under the heading of each Ray we shall have therefore:

  1. The formula of integration.

  1. Its dual application of destruction and rebuilding, with a brief indication of the process and the result.

  1. The final stage of the process wherein the man:

  1. Brings the three bodies into alignment.
  2. Passes through a crisis of evocation, thus, as the Bhagavad Gita says, becoming "manifest through the magical power of the Soul".
  3. Enters into a phase of light, wherein the man sees clearly the next step to be taken.
  4. Receives the revelation of the Plan and of what he has to do in connection with it.
  5. Integrates the three bodies into one synthetic whole, and is therefore ready for the Technique of Fusion, which is suited to his Ray type.

This will bring us to our second point which concerns the Technique of Fusion and the emergence into activity of the Personality Ray.

Ray One

"The love of power must dominate. There must also be repudiation of those forms which wield no power. The word goes forth from Soul to form; 'Stand up. Press outward into life. Achieve a goal. For you, there must be not a circle, but a line. Prepare the form. Let the eyes look forward, not on either side. Let the ears be closed to all the outer voices, and the hands clenched, the body braced, and mind alert. Emotion is not used in furthering of the Plan. Love takes its place.'

Such is the pattern of the thought and the process of the life of the man upon the first Ray who is seeking first of all to control his personality, and then to dominate his environment. His progress is that of "achieved control; that of being controlled, and then again controlling." At first, his motive is that of selfish, separative achievement, and then comes failure to be satisfied. A higher achievement then takes place as a result of the service of the Plan, until the time eventually comes when the first Ray man can be trusted to be God's Destroying Angel—the Angel who brings life through the destruction of the form. Such integrated personalities are frequently ruthless at first, selfish, ambitious, self-centered, cruel, one-pointed, implacable, undeviating, aware of implications, of significances, and of the results of action but, at the same time, unalterable and undeviating, moving forward to their purposes. They destroy and tear down in order to rise to greater heights upon the ruin they have wrought. They do thus rise. They trample on other men and upon the destinies of the little person. They integrate their surroundings into an instrument for their will and move relentlessly forward upon their own occasions. This type of man will be found expressing these qualities in all walks of life and spheres of action, and is a destroying force in his home, business or in the nation.

All this is made possible because the first Ray has at this stage integrated the personality vehicles and has achieved their simultaneous control. The man functions as a whole. This process and method of work brings him eventually to a point of crisis; a crisis based upon the unalterable fact of his essentially divine nature or being, which cannot remain satisfied with the gaining of power in a personality sense and in a material world. Power selfishly used exhausts its user and evokes a display of power antagonistic to him; he is thereby destroyed, because he has destroyed. He is separated off from his fellow men because he has been isolated and separative in his nature.
