Letters on Occult Meditation - Letter VII - The Use of Color and Sound
The Esoteric and Exoteric Colors

Today our subject is the second one in our letter on the use of color and deals with the law of correspondences [224] and of color... The esoteric meaning of the exoteric colors is not yet wholly imparted, as I have already told you. Some of these meanings have been given out by H.P.B. but their significance has not been sufficiently apprehended. One hint I give for your wise consideration. Some of the information given in The Secret Doctrine anent color and sound concerns the first solar system and some concerns a portion of the second solar system. The distinction has naturally not been apprehended, but as a key fact for studying in the newer school, the revelation will be great. In this statement as to the esoteric significance of the colors I would have you now tabulate (even though it can be found in The Secret Doctrine), in order to form the basis of such later communications as I may seek to impart.

Exoteric Esoteric
Purple Blue
Yellow Indigo
Cream Yellow
White Violet
Only four as yet can be communicated, but if rightly understood they hold the key to the present fourth round, and to its history. This being the fourth chain and the fourth round you will note therefore how in the number four lies the history of the present. Especially would I urge you who are the teachers and students of the coming generation to ponder upon the significance of white being esoterically violet. It has special application now in the coming in of the violet ray, the seventh ray being one of the three major rays in this round; it wields power in ratio to the four, on the four and under the four.

The esoteric colors of the exoteric red, green and orange may not yet be imparted to the general public, [225] though students and accepted chelas, whose discrimination can be trusted, can attain the necessary knowledge with effort.

I would here like to point out certain other considerations which can be best dealt with by a brief consideration of the law of analogy and correspondence. We might therefore consider the following points:

  1. Wherein the microcosm and the macrocosm correspond.
  2. The basic correspondences.
  3. Color in the microcosm and in the macrocosm.

Let us briefly take up each point, for in the right apprehension of the law lies the ability to think esoterically, and wrest the inner meaning out of the external happenings.
