The Rays and the Initiations - Part One - Fourteen Rules For Group Initiation
A hint lies here. This high point of attainment of the Christ - as related in the Gospel story - was reached in Gethsemane, and for a brief moment we are given an insight into an aspect or happening of the Sixth Initiation. It was this event and spiritual crisis in the life of the Christ (taking place as He over-shadowed His disciple, Jesus) which enabled Jesus on His own level of spiritual development to take the fourth initiation, that of the Crucifixion or the Great Renunciation. The numbers four and six are closely connected, and the lesser renunciation (great only from the human point of view) makes the higher renunciation possible eventually, and vice versa. Running through many parts of the Gospel story are two paralleling histories; the lesser world of discipleship profits by the achievements of those who take the higher initiations, and thus is demonstrated the close unity which forever exists within the Hierarchy and - focusing through the Christ - the synthesis which is beginning to be formed between the Hierarchy and Shamballa. This is taking place in this era for the first time in human history. The recognition of this emerging synthesis between Will and Love produced a definite effect in [291] the consciousness of the Christ and led Him to know much that had hitherto been concealed from Him.

These are deep mysteries. Their value to the disciple in training lies in the recognized and considered relationships.

These rules are - as you know - the rules controlling group life; they constitute the key to the laws under which all planetary groups work. The hierarchical life, through its major aspect of Love, was a familiar area of consciousness and well-known to the Masters and to the Master of Them all, the Christ. But a further "knowing" lay ahead of even this "perfected Son of God"; the nature and the mind of that great Being, embodied in the Lord of the World at Shamballa, was now revealed to Him.

It is this living realization of Being and of identification with the planetary Logos upon the cosmic mental plane which constituted the unfolding awareness of the Christ upon the Way of the Higher Evolution. Therefore, experience, perception and Being are the keynotes of:

  1. The Path of Evolution.
  2. The mode of unfoldment upon the Path.
  3. The state of divine focus upon the Way.

In other words, you have the states of Individualization, of Initiation, and of Identification.

The relation between the listening of the aspirant and the knowledge of the initiated disciple has been expressed for us in a certain ancient writing as follows:

"Dimly the one who seeks hears the faint whisper of the life of God; he sees the breathing of that whisper which disturbs the waters of his Spatial life. The whisper penetrates. It then becomes the Sound of many waters and the Word of many voices. Great is the confusion but still the listening must go on.

Listening is the seed of obedience, O Chela on the Path.

More loudly comes the voice; then suddenly the voices dim and listening now gives place to knowing - the [292] knowledge of that which lies behind the outer form, the perception of that which must be done. Order is seen. The pattern clear emerges.

Knowing is the seed of conscious doing, O Chela on the Path.

Listening and knowledge also fade away and that which they produce can then be seen. Being emerges and union with the One. Identity is known - not on this plane but on that higher sphere where move and speak the greater Sons of Life. Being alone is left. The work is done."
