Esoteric Psychology I - Section One - II. Certain Questions and their Answers
The third ray, which is one that has a very long cycle, having been in manifestation since A.D. 1425, has a direct effect upon the fifth root race, the Aryan, and has connected with it a set of curious phrases which express its purpose.

The Third Purpose of Deity
Ray III. Active Intelligence or Adaptability

Let the Warden of the South continue with the building. Let him apply the force which will produce the shining living stone that fits into the temple's plan with right exactitude. Let him prepare the corner stone and wisely place it in the north, under the eye of God Himself, and subject to the balance of the triangle.

Let the Researcher of the past uncover the thought of God, hidden deep within the mind of the Kumaras of Love, and thus let him lead the Agnishvattvas, waiting within the place of darkness, into the place of light.

Let the Keeper of the sparks breathe with the breath divine upon the points of fire, and let him kindle to a blaze that which is hidden, that which is not seen, and so illumine all the spheres whereon God works.

I would call attention to the fact that all I can do here is to put into words certain ancient symbols, and so emphasize the process (adopted by the early initiate-teachers) of enunciating a word or sound, which produces a symbolic form, which in its turn, is capable of translation into words. These must in their turn be comprehended intuitively and adapted to individual need, and thus be assimilated into the life practice. Otherwise these ancient and interesting ideas, these interpretative names, and these aphorisms, conveying the "power of qualities", are worse than useless and serve but to increase responsibility. The capacity to see objective significances and [68] then apply them to life is an expression of the true esoteric sense. If one studies these tabulations and phrases with care, they will be found to convey indication as to one's individual ray, life tendencies and purpose; if the appeal the various statements make anent a particular ray evoke an intuitive understanding on the part of the student, so that he recognizes himself, his ray energy and aspects of his latent and deeply desired spiritual nature, then these communications I am making here as to Purpose, Name and Quality will be profitable and useful.

Some of the names of the Lord of the third ray indicate His use of force and His real nature. They are as follows:

  • The Keeper of the Records
  • The Lord of Memory
  • The Unifier of the lower Four
  • The Interpreter of That Which is seen
  • The Lord of Balance
  • The Divine Separator
  • The Discriminating Essential Life
  • The One Who produces Alliance
  • The Three-sided Triangle
  • The Illuminator of the Lotus
  • The Builder of the Foundation
  • The Forerunner of the Light
  • The One Who veils and yet reveals
  • The Dispenser of Time
  • The Lord of Space
  • The Universal Mind
  • The Threefold Wick
  • The Great Architect of the Universe

and many others terms which indicate relation to light, to time, to space, to the manifested Logos, to matter and to the "power which evokes the form."

If all these names are studied in connection with modern developments or modern culture and science, it will become apparent how potent and influential in our day and time is [69] this particular ray Life, and how His energies (having produced the tangible objective worlds) are turned to the manifestation of our modern civilization, with its material emphasis, its search as to the nature of time and space, and that mental unfoldment which it is the glory and the destiny of our particular race to demonstrate.

The qualities which characterize this ray Lord might be enumerated in the following phrases. We must bear in mind that the seventh or synthetic characteristic of each of the rays is denoted by the ray name and is not specifically stated in the other six qualities. His six Brothers, Sons of the one Father, chanted these injunctions to Him on the day of His renewed activity (on what we call the day of creation):

  1. Produce the dual form and veil the life. Let form appear, and prove itself divine. All is of God.
    Quality - the power to manifest.
  2. Conform the shell to that which dwells within. Let the world egg appear. Let ages pass; then let the soul appear. Let life emerge within a destined time.
    Quality - the power to evolve.
  3. Let mind control. Let the clear shining of the sun of life reveal the mind of God, and set the shining one upon his way. Then lead him to the central point where all is lost within the light supernal.
    Quality - mental illumination.
  4. God and His form are one. Reveal this fact, Oh sovereign Lord of form. God and His form are one. Negate the dual concept. Lend color to the form. The life is one; the harmony complete. Prove thus the two are one.
    Quality - the power to produce synthesis on the physical plane.
  5. Produce the garment of the Lord; set forth the robe of many colors. Then separate that robe from That Which hides behind its many folds. Take off the veiling sheaths. Let God be seen. Take Christ from off the cross.
    Quality - scientific investigation.
  6. Let the two paths converge. Balance the pairs of opposites [70] and let the path appear between the two. God and the Path and man are one.
    Quality - balance.

Thus the three major rays sum up in themselves the process of creation, of energizing, through the urge of the divine will; and the work of the four minor rays (as they are called, though with no idea of there being lesser or greater) is to elaborate or differentiate the qualities of the life, and so produce the infinite multiplicity of forms which will enable the life to assume its many points of focus and express - through the process of evolutionary manifestation - its diverse characteristics.
