|The Rays and the Initiations - Part Two - Section Two - The Aspirant and the Major Initiations|
|In the United
States, this fourth energy is peculiarly active, because of the conflict of races,
nations, ideas, political theories, immature development, corrupt politics, and childish
selfishness; this is more prevalent among the leaders in the municipalities and in
politics than it is among the masses of little people in every state, who are basically
sound though easily misled by their so-called leaders; the southern states are, however,
almost unbelievably degenerated and deluded. Remember always, as we look at these various
nations dispassionately, that we are concerned with the same trends and ideas which are to
be  found in each individual aspirant - the conflict of ingrained personality habits
and thoughts and faults, with a steadily increasing soul pressure. The United States,
though one of the younger nations, is - owing to the many racial types represented - one
of the oldest; this curious balancing must inevitably lead to a rapid development, with a
consequent assumption of power, a growing incentive to love and a shouldering of
The conflict in the United States is between a love of freedom which amounts almost to irresponsibility and license, and a growing humanitarian ideology which will result in world service and non-separateness. The rays of energy governing the United States are the 6th Ray of Idealism, which is the energy of the country's personality, and the 2nd Ray of Love-Wisdom, which governs the soul of the country. I would here point out to you that it is the soul ray of the United States which relates it to Great Britain. The sixth ray personality energy (at the present stage of unfoldment) produces an idealism which requires transmuting and changing from an idealism intensely preoccupied with the preservation of a high standard of living and physical comfort to an idealistic appreciation of the real spiritual values; these are at present veiled and hidden in the material philosophy of the country. The youthful interpretation of this idealism can be seen in the complete conviction of the American people that everything in the United States is better than anything anywhere else, in its willingness to tell all the world what should or should not be done, in its revolt from all controls, in its unthinking acceptance of any information which falls in with its preconceived ideas and prejudices; the mature aspect of American idealism leads its people to a prompt response to the good, the beautiful and the true, to the expression of an active humanitarianism and an invocative spiritual approach to reality.
It is interesting to note the unusual alignment of ray energies to be found at this time in the United States: 
|The energy of the soul||Ray of Love-Wisdom||Ray II|
|The energy of the personality||Ray of Idealism||Ray VI|
|The energy of relating the two||Ray of Harmony through conflict||Ray IV|
|These Rays - 2, 4, 6 - are all on the second line of
spiritual energy and lack all the stiffening and strengthening qualities of the first line
of ray energy - 1, 3, 5, 7 - which are governed by Will or Power. The American
civilization, with all its clamor of youthful precocity, is in reality the heir of the
passing sixth ray civilization, the Piscean; therefore, you have here the reason for the
tendency of the American people to adopt violently conditioning idealisms and ideologies.
It is the idealistic tendency in conflict with pronounced materialistic trends of this
particular modern era which will finally evoke the harmony which will liberate the spirit
of America, which will reveal to its people that it is one world and which will enable the
people of this land to harmonize with the rest of the world and draw forth the loving
response of other nations. It is for this that the men of goodwill must work.
Russia is, if you could but realize it, a battleground today within her own sealed walls. Her iron curtain is to Russia what the Monroe Doctrine was to the American people. In connection with all the three Great Powers - the U.S.S.R., the U.S.A. and the U.K. - certain major conflicts are being specifically precipitated; these will fundamentally affect the destiny of humanity. These three nations constitute the three points of a most potent world triangle of energy, and once there is a free circulation and a true understanding established between them, then world peace will be assured and the Christ can come. This understanding and this free harmony (if I may use such a term) will come as the result of each of the three Nations arriving at a real measure of internal harmony as a result of its own particular conflict, and then moving forward in an effort to harmonize with each other and the rest of the world.
Russia has the same personality ray as the United States  and her seventh ray soul (conditioned by the Ray of Order) is closely related to the personality ray of Great Britain, the first Ray of Will or Power; the will aspect of divinity works out on the physical plane as the seventh Ray of Order or of conformity to the inner divine will.
The interior problem of the U.S.S.R. is the conflict raging between the imposed, arrogant will of a handful of powerful dictators and the fluid, unstable and ignorant reaction of a people from whom the truth is constantly withheld; they therefore have to fight blindly for their freedom, to fight instinctively and without knowledge of the facts. They are not yet waging a successful fight.
