Esoteric Astrology - The Rays, Constellations and Planets - Cosmic Energies and Transformation
This covers familiar ground for all of you but in the effort to achieve a vision of the whole, constant repetition has its place. We are now concerned with the third stage of the evolutionary process, carried forward upon the Path of Initiation and entered into (as far as humanity is concerned) at the third initiation, and consummated at the seventh initiation - an initiation far more easily reached by people upon the first Ray than on any of the others.

This - as far as you can at this time grasp - concerns primarily the creative will as it: [615]

  1. Initiates manifestation, and conditions that which is created.
  2. Brings about eventual fulfilment.
  3. Overcomes death or differentiation.

All initiates must and eventually do express dynamic, creative will, a focused purpose which expresses only the will-to-good and also that sustained effort which brings fulfilment. I would remind you here that sustained effort is the seed of synthesis, the cause of achievement and that which finally overcomes death. Death is really deterioration in time and space and is due to the tendency of matter-spirit to isolate itself, whilst in manifestation (from the standpoint of consciousness). This sustained effort of the Logos is what keeps all forms in manifestation and preserves even the life aspect as the integrating factor in form building and - which is equally an act of the sustaining will - can abstract or withdraw the life consciousness intact the close of a cycle of manifestation. Death and limitation are synonymous terms. When the consciousness is focused in form and identified entirely with the principle of limitation, it regards freedom from form life as death; but, as evolution proceeds, the consciousness shifts increasingly into awareness of that which is not form and into the realm of that which is transcendent or into the world of the abstract, i.e., into that which is abstracted from form and focused in itself. This, by the way, is a definition of meditation from the angle of goal and achievement. A man can truly meditate when he begins to use the mind, the reflection of the will aspect, and employs it in its three aspects: as initiating his entrance into the world of souls, as conditioning his personality life and as enforcing and eventually bringing about a full expression of soul purpose. This results [616] in the complete overcoming of death. I am bringing this whole concept down into terms of the microcosm even though it will be obvious that only the pledged disciple in preparation for initiation can begin to grasp some of the significant implications.

Perhaps I can best sum up the keynote of the first Ray of Will or Power, as it seeks expression as dynamic purpose on Earth and in relation to the human being, by quoting or paraphrasing the Old Commentary.

"The Transcendent One, the Life, the Whole,
the All entered into communion with Itself
and by this act became a vital point of life and
focused power.

I am and I am not. Greater than This is That;
smaller than That is This.
But That must shew to This the nature of the whole,
and showing prove itself unto Itself.

I, the beginning am. I am the outward and the inward Way
and back into the point of concentration
and from the point I turn again unto Myself,
carrying within my heart of love that which I,
the One, have served and that for which I sacrifice Myself."
