Letters on Occult Meditation - Letter VII - The Use of Color and Sound
Microcosmic and Macrocosmic Correspondence

The relationship between the microcosm and the macrocosm is accurate, and exists not only broadly but likewise in detail. This is a fact to be grasped and worked out. As knowledge increases and progress is made, and as the ability to meditate results in the faculty of transmitting from the higher Triad to the Personality, via the causal, then these facts will be ever more clearly demonstrated in detail, and perfect comprehension will ensue. "As above, so below" is a truism glibly repeated but little realized. What is found above and what will consequently be developing below?

Above will be found Will, Love and Activity, or Power, Wisdom and Intelligence, the terms that we apply to the three aspects of divine manifestation. Below will be found these three in process of appearing:

  1. The Personality expresses active intelligence. [226]
  2. The Ego expresses love or wisdom.
  3. The Monad expresses power or will.

You have in the three worlds of the Personality:

  1. The physical, expressing a reflection of the activity aspect.
  2. The astral, expressing a reflection of the love or wisdom aspect.
  3. The mental, expressing a reflection of the will or power aspect.

What have you for the colors of those three bodies, exoterically described?

  1. The violet of the physical as expressed by the etheric.
  2. The rose or red of the astral.
  3. The orange of the mental.

What have you in the Triad, or the world of the threefold Ego?

  1. Higher manas, expressing the activity or intelligence aspect.
  2. Buddhi, expressing the love or wisdom aspect.
  3. Atma, expressing the will or power aspect.

What again are the colors of those bodies exoterically described?

  1. The blue of the higher manasic levels.
  2. The yellow of the buddhic level.
  3. The green of the atmic level.

They are in the process of transmutation. You have to effect the corresponding change of color from the lower to the higher. Couple up this information that I have here imparted with that given in an earlier letter on the transference of polarization.

There is a direct correspondence between:

  1. The violet of the etheric level and the blue of the higher mental. [227]
  2. The rose of the astral and the yellow of the buddhic.
  3. The orange of the mental and the green of the atmic.

The secret of it all is to be found in the application of the occult laws of meditation.

Again you can shift the whole range of color higher, and in the Monad work out the correspondence.

  1. The green of the third aspect.
  2. The synthetic blue or indigo of the second aspect.
  3. The red of the first aspect.

I would point out here that as you return to the center of systemic evolution the nomenclature of these colors is most misleading. The red, for instance, has no resemblance to that termed red or rose on the lower plane. The red, the green and the indigo of these high levels are to all intents and purposes new colors of a beauty and translucence inconceivable. If justly interpreted, you have here a hint of the correspondence between the microcosm and the macrocosm.

The colors exoterically have to do with the form. The forces or qualities which those colors conceal and hide have to do with the life, evolving within those forms. By the use of meditation the bridge is formed which connects these two. Meditation is the expression of the intelligence that links life and form, the self and the not-self, and in time and in the three worlds the process of this connection eventuates on the plane of mind which links the higher and the lower. The correspondence will always be found perfect. Therefore through meditation will come that knowledge which will effect three things:

  1. Give the inner significance of the exoteric color.
  2. Build in the qualities that those colors veil. [228]
  3. Effect the necessary transmutation of the colors from the Personality to the Triad, and later from the Triad to the Monad.

The causal body acts as a synthesis of these colors in the life of the reincarnating Ego, just as the synthetic ray blends all the colors in logoic manifestation. Endeavor to keep clear in your own mind... that colors are the expressions of force or quality. They hide or veil the abstract qualities of the Logos, which qualities are reflected in the microcosm in the three worlds as virtues or faculties. Therefore, just as the seven colors hide qualities in the Logos, so these virtues demonstrate in the life of the personality and are brought forward objectively through the practice of meditation; thus each life will be seen as corresponding to a color. Ponder on this.
