Esoteric Psychology II - Chapter II - The Ray of Personality - The Appropriation of the Bodies
We therefore have:

The Personality.

  1. The energy of mind. The force of manas. The reflection of divine will and purpose. Motivation. The impulse to plan, under the Law of Synthesis.
  2. The energy of sentiency. The capacity to respond. Emotional feeling, astral energy. The reflection of love. The force of desire. The impulse to aspire. The divine evolutionary urge. The tendency to attract, to be magnetic, under the Law of Attraction.
  3. The energy of life. The capacity to integrate, to coordinate. The force of the vital or etheric body. The reflection of intelligent activity or divine movement. [285] The impulse to act, to be energetic, under the Law of Economy.
  4. The energy of dense matter. Externalized activity. The automatic reactions of the outer sheath. The densest point of unity. The lowest aspect of synthesis.

The Soul.

  1. The energy of buddhi. The force of divine, reasoning love. The intuition. This is part of the flower of attractive energy and focuses itself in the "love petals of the egoic lotus." Its reflection is found in the astral, emotional, sentient consciousness of the personality.
  2. The energy of atma. The force of the divine will. The embodiment of divine purpose. This focuses itself in the "sacrifice petals of the egoic lotus." Its reflection is found in the mind nature of the personality.

The Spirit.

  1. The energy of life itself.

These energies constitute the human being, a unit of energy. They make him essentially an active, intelligent, loving, living, human being. They are unfolded sequentially in time and space and, as a result of the great experiment of evolution, bring him eventually to the full flowering of his nature, and to a full expression of the seven types of energy which condition him.

The question arises as to when man can become aware in his own personal and separated consciousness (as registered in the waking brain) of the truth of the existence of this septenate of energies. I would reply as follows:

1. Unevolved man, and low grade human beings are aware [286] of the urges of the automatic physical nature and the impulses of the vital or etheric body.

2. Awakening human beings are coordinating and becoming aware of both these primitive urges and impulses, plus the sentient and emotional reactions of the emotional or astral body.

3. Intelligent humanity is, in due time, conditioned by the urges, impulses and sentiency of the three lower types of energy, plus the energy of the mind. When this has really been achieved, the man is then definitely an aspirant upon the probationary path.

4. Aspirants are now becoming aware of the fifth type of basic energy - that of the soul. This response to soul energy, and the blended activity of the soul energies (buddhi-atma) produce the unfolding of the outer layer of petals, the knowledge petals, which are formed of three types of force.

  1. Manasic energy. The energy of the abstract levels of the mental plane, inherent in the soul.
  2. Mental energy. This is the energy of the concrete levels of the mental plane, and is definitely a contribution of the human being himself.
  3. The energy of the mind found in matter itself. This is inherent mind, and is inherited from an earlier solar system.
    These three aspects of mind energy are thus blended and are a synthesis of the intelligent force of deity. They embody as much of the mind of God as a human being can embrace in time and space, for they are
    1. The energy of intelligent life, coming from God the Father. [287]
    2. The energy of intelligent soul or consciousness, coming from God the Son.
    3. The energy of intelligent matter coming from God the Holy Spirit.

5. The disciples of the world are occupied with the integration of the personality with the soul, or with the synthesis of the first five aspects of energy as the lotus petals of love come into conscious recognition, and the intuition begins faintly to function. These petals of love, which are only symbolic forms of expressing energy, have a dual activity - they attract upward the planetary energies and bring downward the energies of the Spiritual Triad, the expression of the Monad.

6. Initiates are becoming conscious of the sixth type of energy, that of atma, the will aspect of Spirit. This causes them to work with the Plan and through the lotus petals of sacrifice to bring the service of the Plan into being. This is ever the aim of the initiate members of the Hierarchy. They understand, express and work with the Plan.

7. After the third initiation, the disciple begins to work with, and to understand the significance of Spirit and his consciousness shifts gradually out of the Soul into that of the Monad in the same way as the consciousness of the personality shifted out of the lower awareness into that of the soul.
