Letters on Occult Meditation - Letter VII - The Use of Color and Sound
I have sought in the above remarks solely to indicate lines of thought which, if followed closely, may lead to surprising results. By the study of colors and the planes, by the study of color and its effect and relationship to the life side, and by the study of the form side of the mind, will come much of value to the student of meditation, provided always he does three things:
  1. That he seeks to find the esoteric colors and their right application to the planes and centers, to the bodies through which he manifests, and to the bodies through which the Logos manifests (the seven sacred planets); to the rounds and to the races, and to the cycles of his own individual life. When he can do this he holds in his hands the key to all knowledge.
  2. That he endeavors to make practical application of all indicated truth to his personal life of service in the three worlds, and that he tries to conform in his methods of work to the methods demonstrated by the Logos through the seven rays or influences. By this I mean that, through meditation, he brings his life systematically and in ordered occult cycles under those seven great influences, and so produces an ordered beauty in his manifestation of the Ego.
  3. That he remembers ever that perfection, as we know it, is only partial and not real, and that even perfection itself - as grasped by the mind of man, is but illusion, and that only the next logoic manifestation will reveal the ultimate glory in view. As long as there is differentiated color there is imperfection. Remember, color as we know it is the realization by the man using a fifth root-race body in the fourth round on the fourth chain, of a vibration that contacts the human eye. What then will [223] color be as visioned by a man of the seventh round in a seventh root-race body? Even then a whole range of colors of wondrous beauty will be outside and beyond his comprehension. The reason being that only two great aspects of logoic life are being thoroughly demonstrated and the third will be but partially revealed, waiting for the still greater "Day be with us" to flash forth in perfect radiance. This word "radiance" has an occult meaning worthy of your consideration.

In the steady adherence to the next duty and the planting of the foot firmly on the next step ahead lies the open road to the Master, and the incidental clearing away of all difficulties. In the formulating of high mental concepts, and the expressing of them on the physical plane lies that development of the mental body that permits of an ever greater influx of the life from above. In the stabilizing of the emotions, and in the transference of desire from that plane to the buddhic comes the ability to reflect truly the higher point of view. In the disciplined, purified physical body comes the capacity to work out that which the inner man knows. If these three things are attended to, the law can then work and emancipation be hastened. People ask themselves, how does the law work? What is our part in the carrying out of action that sets the law loose in the individual life? Simply adherence, as stated above, to the highest duty and an ordering of the personality life so that that duty may be perfectly achieved.
