The Destiny of the Nations - Spiritual Life in the New Age
We can now proceed to consider the seventh ray in its relation to the present situation in just the same way as we considered the sixth ray. Through doing this, there will unfold in your consciousness an idea of the developing process and of the emerging events and of the imminent happenings which may logically be expected. There are, as you may realize, two ways in which any particular ray may [116] be considered. It can be studied, first of all, from the angle of energy which is ever coming into relation with other energies and forces, producing through their meeting and frequent conflict a situation entirely different and changed from that which existed prior to the contact. The stages of this import might be covered briefly by the following words: Contact, conflict, adjustment, equilibrium (a form of stalemate or static condition such as was arrived at during the 19th century), absorption and the final disappearance of the weaker outgoing energy. The conclusion is always inevitable for it is not the rays themselves which are in conflict but the substance and the forms which are implicated during the period. Secondly: the quality of the ray can be considered. This is in reality the expression of its soul and intrinsic nature, which - impinging upon the condition existing when the ray comes into manifestation - definitely does three things:
  1. Changes the nature of the civilization and the culture of humanity in any given period. It is this force which the Hierarchy utilizes when any meeting of the ray energies takes place. The culture is first changed, because all basic quality changes work ever from above downwards, and it is the intelligentsia who are at first sensitive to the incoming differences. Form changes then automatically reverse the process. It is thus that points of juncture inevitably occur throughout the evolutionary process. When the scientists concerned with the theory and processes of evolution accept and study the ray procedure, definite changes in attitude and a closer approach to the truth will at once appear. This concept also lies behind the teaching which I have given anent the Great Approaches which must take place (and can take place [117] very shortly) between the fourth and the fifth kingdoms in nature. Of the fifth kingdom, the Hierarchy is the dynamic and living nucleus.
  2. Changes in the other kingdoms in nature, producing a different quality in the manifestation of the soul of any kingdom (for they all differ in soul quality) and consequently changes in the form aspect as well.
  3. Changes in the type of egos or souls which will take incarnation during any particular ray period. By this I mean that just as during the age which is now coming to an end, the bulk of the incarnating souls were predominantly sixth ray in quality, so we can look for an increasing number of seventh ray egos now to appear. The furtherance of the coming seventh ray civilization of synthesis, fusion, and of increased soul expression, and the development of the new stage into which the white magic of the Hierarchy is entering is, therefore, inevitable and for this stage there should be definite preparation and training.

The powers of the magical age are many and one of the reasons why the seventh ray is now making its appearance is that, owing to the rapid perfecting and integration of the human personality, the higher integration between soul and personality is today more possible and more easily accomplished than ever before. The new forms, through which that much desired consummation can be affected, must be consequently gradually and scientifically developed. This, as you may well conceive, will be achieved through the intensification of the forces, functioning through the etheric body, through the coordination of the seven major centers, and the establishing of their rhythmic relationship. The seventh ray governs predominantly upon the etheric levels of [118] the physical plane. It does not govern the dense physical form which is under the control of the third ray. It is the vital or the etheric body which is responsive to and developed by the incoming seventh ray influences.
