|Let me list them for your helping:
- We are dealing with the effect of the seven ray energies, as they pour forth from
one or other of the seven stars of the Great Bear into our solar system. These energies
 are the life-quality of the seven great Beings Who are the Prototypes of the
planetary Logoi of the sacred planets, seven in number . These latter are Their
reflections in time and space, as the soul is the reflector of the Monad where human
beings are concerned.
- The seven rays express themselves, each through three of the zodiacal constellations.
The analogy (but not the correspondence) is that these three constellations are to the
life of one of these ray Beings what the three aspects of monad-soul-body are to a man.
Again, it is only analogy. Forget not that analogy and correspondence are not the same. In
the first case there is resemblance but not in detail. In the second, there is practically
identical expression, usually on a lower level.
- These seven great Beings express Themselves in our solar system as the custodians or the
exponents of the Will aspect of Deity. Their effect, therefore, is ever to convey into our
solar system and eventually into our planetary life, the energy of the Will, in its
planmaking, form-building nature. Esoteric books and esoteric teaching have necessarily
laid the emphasis upon consciousness as it expresses quality. That is as it should be. But
behind all quality lies That of which the quality is the expression and behind that is to
be found the dynamic "outgoing" (if I might so express it) which is the
motivation of both the quality or consciousness and the life or appearance, the
precipitation of will and quality.
- The nature of the will is as yet undeniable for only the Monad responds to its impact,
and only after the third initiation does man somewhat grasp the nature of the will. All
that is possible to understand in this brief summation is the effect of the will as it
makes its presence  felt and the result of its expression, emphasized through the
