|This significance and approach can be summed up in the
following stanzas from the Old Commentary which - if studied carefully - will
throw much light upon the theme of this particular subject:
- "The sevenfold light of the Father brought from chaos into the ordered day His
purpose and His plan. The seven supreme Gods bent to this purpose and with united will
ordained the Plan.
The Bear and the Lion met together and laid their plans  in conformity with the
plan and with the purpose of their controlling Lord. They called on Father Time (Saturn.
A.A.B.) for aid and strength and he responded to their triple call. To this call likewise
the Eternal Youth responded (Sanat Kumara, Lord of Shamballa); He set Himself anew to
learn the plan, aided by Father Time yet unaffected by the Lord of Time for He Himself was
timeless, though not the Lives which He enfolded in His thought and Plan...
Then the triple light which came from the Bear in His high place, from Leo in his
lesser place and from Saturn in his little place poured into the planetary place of power.
Shamballa was informed. The Lord of Life and of the World took action...
The little one within the greater Whole (the individual human disciple. A.A.B.)
likewise responded to the triple light but not until the cycles passed and passed again.
Late in the day of time, Shamballa sent a call, relayed from voice to voice and rolling
forward on the OM. The disciple, hearing that sound, lifted his head; an impulse from the
base mounted in time and space. Leo within the heart and head shouted aloud and stood
whilst Saturn did his work...and thus the twain were one.
- The central light of Sirius shone through the eye of the Son; the vision came. The light
of wisdom penetrated into the waters and cast the radiance of the Heavens into the depths.
At this attractive call, the goddess rose unto the surface (the fish-goddess, the symbol
of Pisces. A.A.B.) and welcomed the light within the depths and grasped it as her own. She
saw the Sun, having seen her Son, and from  that day the Sun has never left her.
There is no darkness. There is always light.
And then the heavens within the ring-pass-not responded to the light from Sirius which,
passing through the sea of Pisces, lifted the fishes into the heavenly sphere (Uranus) and
thus a lesser triple light appeared, the radiant sun of suns, the watery light of Pisces,
the heavenly light of Uranus. This light descended on the waiting sphere and lit the
galaxy of little lights upon the Earth. A Hierarchy of Light emerged from its own place;
the planet was alight.
- The little one upon that little world responded slowly to that light until today the
little world of men begins to throb in 'rhythmic unison. Changes are wrought. The cosmic
heart, the heart systemic and the little heart of man begin to beat as one and as this
beat pulsates with greater strength it blends a lower note (that of the solar plexus.
A.A.B.) within itself, removes its harshness and its note of fear and thus it ends
illusion. And then again the two are one.
- The seven Mothers blend their light and make it six (refers to the lost Pleiad, A.A.B.)
and yet the seven still are there. Their light is different from the other lights. This
light evokes response from that which shouts aloud: 'I am the densest point of all the
concrete world (Capricorn. A.A.B.). I am a tomb; I also am the womb. I am the rock which
sinks itself into the deep of matter. I am the mountain-top on which the Son is born on
which the  Sun is seen and that which catches the first rays of light. To me a
Messenger comes forth (Mercury. A.A.B.) and says 'the Dayspring from on high is on the
way, sent by the Father to the Mother.' Upon his way unto this nether star we call the
Earth he stopped at a bright sun where shines the light of love (Sirius. A.A.B.) and there
received the accolade of love. So thus he brings bright gifts to man. For he is man
himself and from these three (The Pleiades, Capricorn, Mercury. A.A.B.) Man takes a nature
which is his today. Son of the Mother, born from the tomb and showing after birth the
light which he has taken from them all.
Then to the lower three he turns and to these souls in prison he in time becomes a
Messenger. Thus does the Lord of Mercury repeat himself. The Son descends again into the
place of earth and iron. Again he knows His mother.
And thus the little one upon the littlest sphere becomes the greatest God. From the
directing center of his life on Earth he toils and works and carries out the Plan. (The
ajna center is the directing center. A.A.B.) He too awakens to the need and from the
chosen place (the throat center. A.A.B.) he utters forth the Sound which in time becomes
the Word. And then the three are twain and these are One."
