Letters on Occult Meditation - Letter III - Points considered when assigning Meditation
A Practical Illustration

Let me illustrate, if in any way I can elucidate the matter; accuracy of comprehension is desired.

We will assume that the egoic ray of A is that of the Love or Wisdom Ray, whilst the ray of his lower self is that of the fifth or the Ray of Concrete Knowledge. A in past lives has demonstrated love and has made real progress in the method of the synthetic ray, that of expansion. He loves much and expands with fair facility his consciousness to include a just part of his environing [21] circumstances. But, though of average intelligence, he lacks the stabilizing vibration that attaches to the fifth ray. He has not that concentration that forces results, and he needs the basic foundation of facts before he can wisely and safely proceed much further. The wise teacher, in apprehending this necessity, uses the method of expansion inherent in the egoic ray and applies it to the expansion of the mental body. By a wisely adjudicated method, he will apply the faculty of expansion (hitherto used only to include others through love) to the one-pointed effort likewise to expand for the purpose of apprehending knowledge. When this is done, every effort of the personal life may apparently (in one particular incarnation) be given to the acquirement of scientific position and to the development of mind. Intellectual progress may seem of too paramount importance to the uninstructed onlooker; yet, after all, the work proceeds as desired by the inner guide, and only the life succeeding will demonstrate the wisdom of the egoic choice.

Intellectual expansion by the combination of second ray methods with fifth ray application will be achieved. Have I made this matter clear? I write for clarity, for this question of meditation is of much vital importance to many.

It will, therefore, be clear to you on careful perusal, that as one knows more, one judges less. A person may be well-developed on the love side, yet in some particular incarnation that side may be in abeyance, and the line of development most apparent may be the purely intellectual. Reservation of opinion is the best line for the wise onlooker to take, for he has not yet the inner vision that sees the color, nor the occult hearing that recognizes the note. [22]
