Letters on Occult Meditation - Letter VII - The Use of Color and Sound
Color in the Microcosm and in the Macrocosm

Here lies much of difficulty owing to the process of constant mutation. Color in the microcosm is subject to the following factors:

1. The factor of the ray of the Ego.
2. The factor of the ray of the Personality.
3. The factor of the point in evolution.

One hint may here be given. At a low point in evolution the colors are largely based on the activity aspect. Later comes the working in the love, or wisdom aspect, which has three effects:

  1. The dropping out of colors from the lower sheaths which are the left-overs from a previous system. It involves the elimination of such hues as brown and gray.
  2. The transmutation of certain colors into those of higher tone.
  3. An effect of translucence, or an underlying radiance or brilliance, which is the result of the greater purity of the bodies and the dimensions of the ever-growing inner flame.

4. The factor of the ray, or rays, that are manifested passing out of manifestation or coming into manifestation. These rays necessarily affect the egos in incarnation; they cause a change of vibration somewhat or a consequent change of coloring or of quality. If a man, for instance, is on the Ray of Science, and comes under the influence of the incoming Ray of Harmony, the effect on his trend of thought, and consequently on the color he [231] will be demonstrating, will be quite noticeable. All these factors cause the blending and merging and mixing that is practically inextricably confusing to the man from the standpoint of the three worlds.

...I appreciate your feeling that even these hints but lead apparently to greater confusion. But by constant application to the subject in hand, by frequent brooding and meditation on the colors, and by an endeavor to attain their esoteric significance, and their microcosmic application, will gradually appear the thread that will lead the student out of his confusion into the clear light of perfect knowledge. Have, therefore, courage, a broad elasticity of view, and an ability to reserve opinion until further facts are demonstrated, and also an avoidance of dogmatic assertion. These will be your best guides in the early days of your search. Many have, through meditation and a receptiveness to the higher teaching, found their way out of the Hall of Learning into the Hall of Wisdom. Only in the Hall of Wisdom can the esoteric interpretation of the colors be truly known. That Hall is entered through the meditation which prepares the student for that initiation which opens to him the door. Therefore, hold fast to meditation and falter not in purpose.
