In our solar system onlyPsychology1, 163:our solar system only one of these seven great rays is in operation. The seven subdivisionsPsychology1, 163:The seven subdivisions constitute the "seven rays" which, wielded by our solar Logos, form thePsychology1, 163:variations in His system of worlds. These seven rays may be described as the seven channels throughPsychology1, 163:life, for it is not to humanity only that these rays apply, but to the seven kingdoms as well.

The rays are sometimes considered as divided into threePsychology1, 167:in this way, they are spoken of as the three rays, and typify the various Trinities. AnotherPsychology1, 167:fragment of symbology describes the three rays as using respectively three kinds of fire to lightPsychology1, 168:any given life.  We have seen that seven rays are seven differentiations of one great cosmicPsychology1, 168:therefore within it the potentiality of all the rays, but from the time when our Logos formedPsychology1, 168:by the special attributes of one or other of the rays.
