|It is well-nigh impossible for me to make this any clearer
because I am speaking of some of the final aspects and effects of the highest initiations.
I only touch upon them because they consummate and climax this study of divine psychology
as it manifests through God and through man. I am simply giving faint and inadequate
indications of that which emerges in the human consciousness after the third initiation -
the point at which personality or form life is transcended and the Monad becomes the
object of the desired attainment; its spiritual pressure is then increasingly felt. It is,
therefore, only possible to point to distant goals. We can, however, gain some dim,
human interpretations of divine goals by relating these rays and their transmitting
constellations to our Earth and by noting how this triangular relationship can work out on
our planet. Individual apprehension will be dependent upon the point of development and
only the higher initiates will understand the real implications of my remarks.
to remember, therefore, as you study these most deeply esoteric relations that we approach
them from two angles - the only angles which are as yet possible to the finite mind of
- The relation of the three constellations to the rays which are each expressing the
quality of the Life of an Informing Entity - the Being Who is expressing Identity through
one or other of the seven stars of the Great Bear, Ursa Major, as we probably ought to
call this constellation.
- The three aspects of the will which the three constellations are
expressing and to which human beings will consciously respond after the third initiation.
These three aspects are:
- The will which conditions and initiates.
- The will which brings fulfilment.
- The will which conquers death.
entering into a closer analysis of our subject, I would remind you that we are in reality
dealing with universals, symbolized for us in the huge aggregate of constellations with
which our theme is concerned:
- The seven stars of the Great Bear or Ursa Major are involved in an intricate relation
with Ursa Minor and the Pleiades. With this we shall not deal. This major  triplicity
of constellations has a peculiar relation to that Great Being to Whom I have at times
referred as the One About Whom Naught Can Be Said. All that can be hinted at is that these
three galaxies of stars are the three aspects of that Indescribable, Absolute Monad, the
Ineffable Cause of the seven solar systems - of which ours is one.
- The twelve constellations of the zodiac, each with its own interrelations, peculiar to
its own integral Life, form - each of them - part of a triangle of energies. Each of these
triangles is a unit in itself but in conjunction with the other triangles forms part of
that major quaternary which is the cosmic analogy of the quaternary of the One Life - soul
and the dual psychic nature, called in some of the esoteric books kama-manas, plus
the vital nature. These four are the expression of the One Ineffable Cause.
- Our solar system (of supreme unimportance) is yet a part of the sevenfold appearance of
that same Essential Cause. As you know, from a study of The Secret Doctrine, our
solar system is a tiny reflection or replica of the 1, the 3, the 7, the 12. Because of
that innate, inherent correspondence, it has within itself the capacity to respond to the
energies emanating from this fountainhead of light and will. More than this I may not say,
because the entire theme is too vast. for human thinking, with its limitations of
consciousness and its inadequacy of language. But even a dim perception of that vast
aggregation of intelligent Forces and this immense concatenation of stupendous, divine
"Intentions" will serve to bring into clearer light, the realization that our
solar system (and consequently out planet) is a part of this vast whole, kept alive by its
"grace,"  fused by its will, and preserved by its "Intention."
Because these Forces are, we are; because They persist, we persist; because They
move in form, in space, in time, we do the same.
