|The third ray disciple, employing the Technique of Fusion,
finds that: 
As a result
of the disciple's use of this technique, there is brought about an increased vital
livingness, and a dynamic inflow of spiritual life into the physical plane experience. The
disciple becomes "inspired" by the fire of love, and this evokes the
"service of creation" as an expression of that love.
which inspires him and which makes him dynamic and creative in his environment comes
likewise from the will aspect of the Monad, sweeping the higher  mind into activity
upon the higher mental level which is that on which the creative ideas of God emerge in
form to be recognized by the human consciousness.
of approach or of downflow is as follows:
- It evokes a
full functioning of the divine creative faculty. It will be apparent at this point how
important is motive, for it determines the line of activity and differentiates
man's activity into what is called (by esotericists) black and white magic. It is
interesting also to note that it is the very rare man indeed who swings into the field of
so-called black magic. This indicates, does it not, my brother, the extraordinarily
triumphant work of the Great White Lodge.
- The fiat
which initiated this creative activity, as far as it relates to man, has been inadequately
couched in the words: "Let the earth bring forth abundantly", thus inaugurating
the age of creativity. This creative fecundity has steadily shifted during the past few
thousand years into the creation of those effects of which ideas are the cause, producing
within the creative range of man's mind:
- That which is useful and so contributing to man's present civilization.
- That which is beautiful, thus gradually developing the aesthetic consciousness, the
sense of color, and the recognition of the use of symbolic forms in order to express
quality and meaning.
- From the
will aspect of the monadic life to that level of consciousness and of energy which we call
that of the higher mind.
- From the
higher mind to the knowledge petals of the egoic lotus.
- From these
vortexes of force to the lower or concrete mind - that in which the average intelligent
man familiarly works - to the throat center and from thence immediately to the sacral
center (the center of physical plane creation or reproduction). From there it is raised
again to the throat center where the creative physical urge is transmuted into artistic or
literary creation in some form or another, and later still into the power to create groups
or organizations which will express some idea or some thought which emanates from the Mind
of God, and which demands immediate precipitation upon earth.
of this inflow of supremely high energies is that the processes set in motion by the
Technique of Integration are completed and the rays of the lower man are welded or fused
into the Personality Ray. This itself is later blended with the egoic ray, enabling that
spiritual Identity which we recognize as standing behind phenomenal man to work through
both these rays, thus bringing about a correspondence to that grouping within the divine
expression which we call the major and minor rays. The rays of the triple lower nature
then form one single avenue through which the soul, and later the energy of spirit can
contact the larger Whole  in manifestation upon the physical, astral and
mental planes. When the Techniques of Integration and Fusion have done their intended
work, this spiritual Identity can work in service to humanity and in cooperation with the
Plan in the three worlds of human endeavor and in the five states of consciousness, human
and superhuman. This brings the disciple to the period wherein the third initiation can be
taken; then still higher forces can be brought into play and the Technique of Duality can
be considered, mastered and used. It will be obvious to you that I cannot give you the
rules of this technique, as they constitute part of the veiled secrets of initiation.
Though duality is emphasized, it is a duality which produces simplification, merging and
synthesis. Man is then viewed as a duality of spirit and matter and not as the well known
triplicity of spirit, soul and body.
