Esoteric Psychology I - Section One - II. Certain Questions and their Answers
B. The Four Rays of Attribute

The Fourth Purpose of Deity
Ray IV. Harmony, Beauty, Art

Color, and yet no color now is seen. Sound and the soundless One meet in an infinite point of peace. Time and the timeless One negate the thoughts of men. But time is not.

Form is there found, and yet the psychic sense reveals that which the form is powerless to hide, - the inner synthesis, the all-embracing prism, that point of unity which - when it is duly reached - reveals a further point where all the three are one, and not the two alone.

Form and its soul are merged. The inner vision watches o'er the fusion, knows the divine relation and sees the two as one. But from that point of high attainment, a higher vision blazes forth before the opened inner eye. The three are one, and not alone the two. Pass on, O pilgrim on the Way.

In reading these words, the student must bear in mind that the antechamber has been left behind and man stands (when he has allowed the fourth ray to do its work and can therefore function on the fourth or buddhic plane) within the temple of the Lord. He has found a measure of light, but in that light he now sees light, and visions a greater revelation and brilliance. This now becomes the object of his search. [71] He has mastered the uses of duality and has learnt to at-one soul and body into one instrument for spirit. Now he passes on his way to achieve the greater synthesis.

The Lord of the fourth ray has many names which warrant careful study and much consideration. In less than a hundred years this Lord of harmonizing power will have more influence and will offset some of the Saturn disruption of the first decanate of Aquarius. In the meantime a study of His names will produce a simplification of His efforts and build up a body of constructive thought which will facilitate His work when He is again in active manifestation. He is always, however, more or less in power where the human family is concerned, for there is a numerical alliance between the fourth ray, the fourth Creative Hierarchy, or the human monads, and the fourth kingdom in nature. His power is always consequently active.

  • The Perceiver on the Way
  • The Link between the Three and Three
  • The Divine Intermediary
  • The Hand of God
  • The Hidden One
  • The Seed, that is the Flower
  • The Mountain whereon Form dies
  • The Light within the Light
  • The Corrector of the Form
  • The One Who marks the parting of the Way
  • The Master
  • The Dweller in the Holy Place
  • The Lower than the Three, the Highest of the Four
  • The Trumpet of the Lord.

The aphorisms connected with this fourth ray are not easy of comprehension. They require an exercise of the intuition and are conveyed by six short and excessively brief commands uttered, curiously enough, late in the creative period [72] and at the time when the fourth Creative Hierarchy came into incarnation:

  1. Speak low the Word. Speak low.
    Quality - power to penetrate the depths of matter.
  2. Champion desire. Give what is needed to the seeker.
    Quality - the dual aspects of desire.
  3. Lower the thread. Unfold the Way. Link man with God. Arise.
    Quality - power to reveal the path.
  4. All flowers are thine. Settle the roots in mud, the flowers in sun. Prove mud and sun, and roots and flowers are one.
    Quality - power to express divinity. Growth.
  5. Roll and return, and roll again. Cycle around the circle of the Heavens. Prove all is one.
    Quality - the harmony of the spheres.
  6. Color the sound. Sound forth the color. Produce the notes and see them pass into the shades, which in their turn produce the sounds. Thus all are seen as one.
    Quality - the synthesis of true beauty.
