Esoteric Psychology I - Section Two - III. The Rays and Man

The Ray of the Ego

In starting our study of the ray of the Ego or Soul, certain major premises might be briefly stated and incorporated into a series of propositions, fourteen in number. They are as follows:

  1. The egos of all human beings are to be found upon one or another of the seven rays. [402]

  • All egos found upon the fourth, the fifth, the sixth and the seventh rays must eventually, after the third initiation, blend with the three major rays, or monadic rays. The monadic ray of every ego is one of the three rays of aspect, and the sons of men are either monads of power, monads of love, or monads of intelligence.
  • For our specific purposes, we shall confine our attention to the seven groups of souls found upon one or other of the seven rays or streams of divine energy.
  • For the major part of our racial and life experience we are governed sequentially, and later simultaneously by:
  1. The physical body, which is dominated by the ray governing the sum total of the atoms of that body.
  2. The emotional desire nature, which is to be found influenced and controlled by the ray which colors the totality of astral atoms.
  3. The mind body or mental nature, and the caliber and quality of the ray determining its atomic value.
  4. Later, on the physical plane, the soul ray begins to work in and with the sum total of the three bodies, which constitute - when aligned and functioning in unison - the personality. The effect of that general integration is actively to produce an incarnation and incarnations wherein the personality ray emerges clearly, and the three bodies or selves constitute the three aspects or rays of the lower personal self.
  • When the personality ray becomes pronounced and dominant, and the three body rays are subordinated to it, then the great fight takes place between the egoic ray or soul and the personality ray. The differentiation becomes clearly marked, and the sense of duality becomes more definitely established. The experiences detailed in the Bhagavad Gita become the experiences [403] of the path of discipleship; Arjuna stands "at the midway point" on the field of Kurukshetra, between the two opposing forces, and, owing to the smoke of the battle, finds himself unable to see clearly.
  • Eventually, the soul ray or influence becomes the dominating factor, and the rays of the lower bodies become the sub-rays of this controlling ray. This last sentence is of basic importance, for it indicates the true relation of the personality to the ego or soul. The disciple who understands this relation and conforms to it is ready to tread the path of initiation. Each of the seven groups of souls is responsive to one of the seven types of force, and all of them are responsive to the ray of the planetary Logos of our planet, which is the third Ray of Active Intelligence. All are therefore upon a sub-ray of this ray, but it must never be forgotten that the planetary Logos is also upon a ray, which is a sub-ray of the second Ray of Love-Wisdom. Therefore we have:

The Ray of the Planetary Logos[404]


It should be remembered that our planetary Logos functioning through the planet Earth is not considered as producing one of the seven sacred planets.

earlier this afternoon i was meditating in the park, i was seeing some beautiful colors, really bright greens, yellows like the sun, orange, red... and then, a light blue gray (like smoke, as i could see through it) came into my mind screen and the other colors got covered up, slowly. i could still see them, but it was fuzzy. so, i asked that the blue gray color (like smoke screen) be taken away and it was gone. then, i had a beautiful magenta and also turquoise color and small bubbles in different clolors one after the other with devae/fae inside, added to the mix, along with shapes. i think it is interesting that i had this vision today, esp. as this was posted a couple of hours later. maybe a hint? (lately, i have been telling my ego to just quit it).
Rak, i reposted this one on my blog, so that i can remember where it is.  hugs! and thank you for posting this... i think it is a good one.
