Esoteric Healing - Chapter VIII - The Laws and Rules Enumerated and Applied
  1. Two energies meet in man but other five are present. For each is to be found a central point of contact.

The two energies which meet in man are the two aspects of the monad, of the One in manifestation; the monad manifests essentially as a duality; it expresses itself as will and love, as atma-buddhi and these two energies when brought into relation with the point of mind, with the third aspect of divinity, produce the soul and then the tangible manifested world; then there is demonstrated in the planet will, love, and mind or intelligence; or atma-buddhi-manas.

As the soul anchors itself as consciousness and life within the human being, that human being contributes the third something which is latent or karmically present in all substance, manas or mind; this is inherited or held in solution in substance from a previous solar system. In that system intelligence was unfolded and was retained within [589] substance in order to form the basis of the evolutionary development of this, the second solar system. Forget not that the seven planes of our solar system constitute the seven subplanes of the cosmic physical plane and that, therefore, spirit is matter at its highest point of expression, and matter is spirit at its lowest. Life differentiates itself into will and love, into great impulsing energies which underlie the entire evolutionary process and motivate its inevitable consummation.

Atma-buddhi, as energies, anchor themselves in the soul vehicle, in the egoic lotus, and their fused activity evokes a response from the substance of the mental plane which then makes its own contribution. Its reaction produces what we call the higher mind, which is of so subtle a nature and so tenuous an emanation that it must perforce relate itself to the two higher aspects and become part of the Spiritual Triad. The vortex of forces established under the impact of the divine will, expressing divine purpose and unified with Being (as identity and not as a quality), produces the egoic lotus, the vehicle of that "identified soul" which has been swept into expression by the third result of the atmic-buddhic impact on the three worlds; the concrete mind and the human intellect come into expression. There is, therefore, a curious resemblance between the three divine aspects in manifestation and the spiritual man upon the mental plane. The correspondence is as follows:

  • The monad - Abstract mind.
  • The soul - Egoic lotus.
  • The personality - Lower or concrete mind.

That vague abstraction, the monad, for aeons of time seems unrelated in any way to the soul and the personality; these two have been and are occupied with the task of establishing, in due time and under the evolutionary urge, a close fusion [590] or at-one-ment. The abstract mind remains also for aeons of time something inconceivable and outside the modes of expression and of thinking of the man who is kama-manasic (or emotion and lower mind) and then finally soul and concrete mind (or the illuminator and the transmitter of illumination). These correspondences can be found most enlightening if due consideration is given to them.

In the human being you have, therefore, two major energies anchored; one unrealized, to which we give the name of the Presence, the other realized, to which we give the name of the Angel of the Presence. These are the soul (the solar angel) and the monad. One embodies the monadic ray and the other the soul ray, and both of these energies actively or subtly condition the personality.

The other five energies which are present are the ray of the mind or the conditioning force of the mental body; the ray of the emotional nature, and the ray of the physical body, plus a fourth ray which is that of the personality. The ray of the physical body esoterically "ascends upward towards juncture, whereas the others all move down," to quote an ancient writing. The ray of the personality is a consequence or result of the vast cycle of incarnations. You have therefore:

1. The monadic ray.
2. The soul ray.
    3. Ray of the mind.
    4. Ray of the emotions.
    5. Ray of the physical body.
6. Ray of the personality.
    7. The planetary ray.

The planetary ray is always the third Ray of Active Intelligence because it conditions our Earth and is of great potency, enabling the human being to "transact his business in the [591] world of planetary physical life."

I have made only casual reference to these rays elsewhere and have said little anent the planetary ray; I have laid the emphasis upon another analysis of the conditioning rays, and in this analysis recognized only five rays for practical usefulness to the man. These are:

  1. The soul ray.
  2. The personality ray.
  3. The mental ray.
  4. The astral ray.
  5. The ray of the physical body.

However, with the creation and development of the antahkarana, the ray of the monad must also be brought into line, and then that which is its polar opposite, the planetary "livingness," the third ray, will have to be recognized. I have here imparted a point of much importance to you. All these energies play an active part in the life cycle of every man and cannot be totally ignored by the healer, even though the information may be relatively useless at this time.
