Esoteric Psychology II - Chapter I - The Egoic Ray - The Growth of Soul Influence
In man, the microcosm, the objective of the evolutionary purpose for the fourth kingdom in nature is to enable man to manifest as a soul in time and space and to tune in on the soul purpose and the plan of the Creator, as it is known and expressed by the seven Spirits before the Throne, the seven planetary Logoi. But at this point we can only hint at a great mystery, which is that all that the highest of the Sons of God on our manifested planetary world can grasp is a partial realization of the purpose and plan of the Solar Logos, as it is grasped, apprehended and expressed by one of the planetary Logoi Who is (in His place and term of office) conditioned and limited by His own peculiar point in evolution. A seventh part of the unfolding Plan is being expressed by our particular planetary Life, and because this great Being is not one of the seven sacred Lives and is therefore not expressing Himself through one of the seven sacred planets, the Plan as unfolded upon the Earth is a part of a dual expression of purpose, and only as another non-sacred planet reaches its consummation can the whole plan for the Earth be realized. This may not be easily understood, for, it has been said, only those who are initiate can grasp some of the significance of the statement that "The twain shall be one and together shall express divinity."

All that concerns humanity at this time is the necessity for a steadily unfolding conscious response to the evolutionary revelation and a gradual apprehension of the Plan which will enable man to

  1. Work consciously and intelligently
  2. Realize the relation of form and quality to life
  3. Produce that inner transmutation which will bring [7] into manifestation the fifth kingdom in nature, the Kingdom of Souls.

All this has to be accomplished in the realm of conscious awareness or response, through the medium of steadily improving vehicles or response mechanisms, and with the aid of spiritual understanding and interpretation.

With the bigger questions we will not deal. With the consciousness of the life of God as it expresses itself in the three subhuman kingdoms, we need not concern ourselves. We shall deal entirely with the following three points:

  1. With the strictly human consciousness as it begins with the process of individualization and consummates in the dominant personality.
  2. With the egoic consciousness, which is that of the solar angel as it begins with the preparation for initiation on the Path of Discipleship and consummates in the perfected Master.
  3. With the monadic realization. This is a phrase that means absolutely nothing to us, for it concerns the consciousness of the planetary Logos. This begins to be realized at the third initiation, dominating the soul and working out through the personality.
  • Man, the average human being, is a sum total of separative tendencies, of uncontrolled forces and of disunited energies, which slowly and gradually become coordinated, fused, and blended in the separative personality.
  • Man, the Solar Angel, is the sum total of those energies and forces which are unified, blended and controlled by that "tendency to harmony" which is the effect of love and the outstanding quality of divinity.
  • Man, the living Monad, is the veiled reality, and that which [8] the Angel of the Presence hides. He is the synthetic expression of the purpose of God, symbolized through revealed, divine quality and manifested through the form. Appearance, quality, life - again this ancient triplicity confronts us. Symbolically speaking, this triplicity can be studied as:
  1. Man - the Angel - The Presence.
  2. The root - the lotus - the fragrance.
  3. The bush - the fire - the flame.

The work of evolution, being part of the determination of Deity to express divinity through form, is necessarily, therefore, the task of revelation, and as far as man is concerned, this revelation works out as the growth of soul evolution and falls into three stages:

  1. Individualization - Personality.
  2. Initiation - Ego.
  3. Identification - Monad.
