|5. The factor of analysis. This factor may
surprise those who suffer from the misuse of the power to discriminate, to analyze and to
criticize. It is, however, a basic, divine quality, producing wise participation in the
Plan and skill in action.
- On the form side, it manifests as the tendency to separate, divide and to place in
contradictory positions. On the life side, it leads to that understanding which tends to
identification, through the wider choice and comprehension.
- It is the basic cause and impulse which will lead to the eventual appearance of the
kingdom in nature, higher than the human, which is strictly that of the soul, and will
produce the manifestation upon earth of the fifth kingdom in nature, that of the kingdom
of gods. This phrase should be noted.
- It is the result of the active work of the sons of God, the sons of mind, and is the
part which they are contributing to the total planetary contribution, as part of the great
systemic Plan. The Hierarchy itself is  the outer and inner manifestation of the
sacrifice of the divine Manasaputras (as They are called in The Secret Doctrine), and
its members respond to Their sensed vision of the Plan for the whole. The Hierarchy is
essentially the germ or nucleus of the fifth kingdom in nature.
6. The quality, innate in man, to idealize. This is founded upon the success of
the Plan itself. This Plan sought originally to awaken in man the following responses:
right desire, right vision and right creative activity, based upon right interpretation of
ideals. This triplicity of purpose merits thoughtful consideration.
- On the form side, this has worked out as material desire, leading eventually to cruelty
and frequently to an extreme sadistic expression. On the life side, it has led to
sacrifice, one pointed purpose, progress on the path, and devotion.
- It is the basic cause of all organization and of cooperation. The ideal before the
Hierarchy is the realized Plan. This is brought to humanity in the form of ideas, which
become, in time, ideals - to be desired and fought for. In order to materialize these
ideals, the trend to organize comes into being.
- It is the result - curiously enough - of the work of a peculiar group of world workers,
who are recognized by humanity under the name of World Saviors. These are the Founders of
those forms through which the divine ideas become the ideals of the masses, in all realms
of human thought. Every great world leader is necessarily a "suffering Savior."
7. The seventh rule or controlling force with which the  Hierarchy works is the
interplay of the great dualities. Through the activity engendered by this
interplay, and through the results achieved (producing always a third factor), the whole
manifested world is swept into line with the divine Purpose. This does not become apparent
to the man who is immersed in the detail of life, but could we see the planetary life as
it can be seen by the Masters Themselves, we would note the pattern emerging in all its
beauty, and the structure of God's thought for the universe appearing today in clearer
outline and greater synthesis and beauty of detail than ever before.
- On the form
side, this produces the sense of being imprisoned by the time factor, the victim of speed,
and the implacable forces of all life activity, as they play upon the imprisoned human
being. On the life side, it results in rhythmic living and conscious adaptation of energy
to the immediate purpose and goal.
- It is
necessarily the basic cause of the appearance and the disappearance of forms, human and

result of at-one-ments wrought out on the physical plane, thus producing the lower
unifications, just as the at-one-ments wrought out hitherto in the human consciousness,
have produced unification with the soul. The higher at-one-ments, hitherto effected on the
plane of mind, have to be expressed eventually on the plane of physical life.
