Esoteric Psychology II - Chapter II - The Ray of Personality - The Coordination of the Personality
This Technique of Fusion might be better understood by all of you if it were called the Technique of Transmutation, but it must be remembered that the transmutation referred to is not that of bad qualities into good or of bad characteristics into good ones (for this should take place quite definitely upon the Path of Probation) but the transmutation of the higher aspects of the personality ray into those of the soul. When this has been to a great extent carried forward satisfactorily, then the Technique of Duality comes into play - duality differing greatly from that to which we refer when we speak of the higher and lower selves. It is a duality which is utilized upon the Path of initiation by Those Who Know no sense of separativeness, and signifies one wherein the transmuted and purified personality qualities and characteristics are used by the initiate in the three worlds for service and the furthering of the Plan. The egoic energies are only brought into play when needed for group benefit and within the confines (again a paradoxical term and only of significance in consciousness from the standpoint of the lesser minds) of the Kingdom of God.

It will be seen, therefore, that we are dealing here with relatively advanced stages of human development. What I have now to say will veil, under extremely simplified phrases, truths which will be apparent to two groups of aspirants:

  1. Accepted disciples, who will comprehend the significances of the Technique of Fusion.
  2. Initiates, who will work with the Technique of Duality

It should be remembered also that we are here dealing with the primordial duality of spirit and matter and not with the secondary duality of soul and body. This point is of deep importance and will bear most careful consideration.

The man who will seek to use the Technique of Fusion is [382] the disciple who is conscious of personality power, owing to the fact that his mind is beginning to dominate his sentient emotional nature, much in the same way as his emotional sentient nature has, for ages, controlled his physical body. The use of the mind is becoming "second nature" to certain advanced types of men, and it is called into play, when they reach this stage, almost automatically. The result is that the integration of the three energies is proceeding fast. At the same time, the man is definitely oriented to soul contact and knowledge, and frequently the mind (when it is the controlling personality factor) is itself brought suddenly and dynamically under the control of the soul.

This accounts for the intense difficulty of the life of every disciple at this stage. Several processes are simultaneously going on:

  1. The mind factor is steadily becoming more dominant, increasingly clarified and usable.
  2. The three aspects of the lower nature are working in closer unity all the time, each growing at the same time in individual potency.
  3. The personality ray is making its presence felt, and the expressed power of the man (within his environment) is equally increasing.
  4. The soul ray is, at times, projecting itself and this produces in the early stages those difficult upsets and turmoils which are usually of a distressing kind.

It is at this stage therefore that the Technique of Fusion can profitably be used, preserving at the same time the realized integrity of the motive which, if correctly apprehended, should be

  1. The motive of a realized objective of soul control in response to a living reaction to its sensed pull or call. [383]
  2. The motive of service, in response to a sentient realization of humanity's need.
  3. The motive of cooperation with the Plan, in response to an intelligent appreciation of its nature and existence.

Again you will note that we have swung back to our three major themes: Soul control, Service, and the Plan.

It might, therefore, seem that this particular technique will be a sevenfold one like the Technique of Integration, but in this you would be mistaken. It is a threefold technique based upon the fact that all souls are eventually divided (again a paradoxical phrase when dealing with souls, but what can be done when modern language proves inadequate to the demands of soul knowledge) into three major groups, or rather distinguished by three major qualities, those of the first, second and third rays. Life, the One Life, manifests through these three major qualities, which condition its sevenfold appearance, and which are essentially Will, Love and Intelligence.

This Technique of Fusion evokes these three qualities in relation to the soul, to service and to the Plan. At the same time, it brings illumination to the mind (thus revealing the soul and the kingdom of God); it brings increased imagination (creative and dynamic) to the emotional sentient nature, the astral body (thus revealing relationship and responsibility); it brings likewise inspiration to the physical life, to the physical body, via the brain (revealing actual capacity to cooperate intelligently with the Plan). Therefore, we shall have to consider a technique which will do three things:

  1. Bring Illumination, through the evocation of the Will or first aspect of divinity.
  2. Bring Imagination, through the evocation of Love, the [384] second aspect or of sentient response to the world soul in all forms.
  3. Bring Inspiration, through the evocation of the Intelligence, the third aspect.
