The Rays and the Initiations - Part Two - Section Two - The Aspirant and the Major Initiations
The effect of sixth ray activity upon the mental nature is, as you may imagine, a tendency - first of all - to the crystallizing of thought, a reaction to imprisoning ideologies, and a fanatical mental adherence to mass ideals, with no understanding of their relationship to the need of the time or to their intended creative aspects. Later, as the disciple prepares for the second initiation, these tendencies are transformed into spiritual devotion to human welfare and to a one-pointed adherence to the Plan of the Hierarchy; all emotional reaction to the Hierarchy of Masters fades out, and the disciple can now work without being hindered by constant astral disturbances.

The effect of sixth ray energy upon the integrated personality of the disciple can only be described as producing a condition wherein he is definitely astral-buddhic [583] in his nature; gradually his one-pointed emotional effort towards orientation to the soul makes him "an aspiring point of tension, oblivious of crisis and firmly anchored in the love which streams forth from the soul."

Let me sum up what I have said anent the effect of sixth ray energy:

  1. The energy of the sixth ray produces two major results:
    1. An embryonic realization of the will nature which determines the life of the initiate.
    2. A pronounced conflict between the lower and the higher self. This reveals to the initiate the ancient conflict between the emotional nature and true realization.
      This brings about a basic reorientation of the life of the initiate and of humanity as a whole.
  2. In connection with humanity, the effects of the sixth ray are as follows:
    1. The development of a tendency to clarify the world atmosphere, thus releasing the energy of goodwill.
    2. The production of a condition wherein "the race of men" can take either the first or the second initiation.
    3. The sudden and powerful emergence of the world ideologies.
    4. A basic transformation within the astral plane itself which is producing points of crisis and a point of tension.
  3. In relation to the individual initiate, the sixth ray produces:
    1. An acute situation wherein a vortex of force is generated.
    2. In this vortex all the emotional and ideological reactions of the aspirant are intensified.
    3. Later, when this subsides, the initiate's alignment becomes astral-mental-soul.
    4. There takes place, in connection with his mental vehicle, a crystallization of all thought and a fanatical adherence to mass idealism. [584]
    5. These tendencies are later transformed into spiritual devotion to human welfare.
    6. The personality becomes definitely astral-buddhic in nature and expression.

You will see, therefore, how immediate and important is the opportunity confronting humanity today. Vast numbers of men will take the first step towards the unfolding of the Christ consciousness and thus pass through the first initiation. This often (I might well say usually) takes place without the conscious realization of the physical brain. This first initiation is - and always has been - mass initiation, even when individually registered and recorded. Thousands of aspirants in every country (as a result of conscious effort to understand) will stand before the initiator and undergo the Baptism Initiation; bread and water are the symbols of these first two initiations; both are basic essentials for life in the physical sense, and are equally basic in their implications spiritually; this the initiate knows. These two initiations are the only two of significant importance at this time, owing to their relative immediacy.

It is the return of the Christ which has brought these subjective spiritual tendencies of mankind to the surface and made these two initiations possible; it is the activity of the seventh Ray of Order and of the sixth Ray of Idealism which has generated the tendency in humanity towards the white magic of right human relations. They have fostered the trend to ideological control of the human consciousness. It is the passing out of the Piscean Age with its type of energy, and the coming into power of the Aquarian Age (with its potent purificatory energies and its quality of synthesis and universality) which will make the new world order possible. It is therefore apparent that the opportunity confronting humanity has never been so promising and that the corporate relation and fusion of all these energies makes the manifestation of the Sons of God and the appearance of the Kingdom of God an inevitable happening in our planetary life. [585]
