The Destiny of the Nations - Initiation in the Aquarian Age
7. Initiation in the Aquarian Age

I have hinted at the orientation which has been or will be carried out in connection with the three major world centers; I have also hinted at the relation of certain of the major initiations to these centers. These hints constitute a new line of thought. In this connection there are one or two points which I would like to develop in connection with this, so as to make the entire subject considerably clearer than it is at present. I would like also to relate these centers to the rays which are now in manifestation (either coming in, passing out or in full expression). Speaking with brevity, we could say that:

The first initiation is closely related to the planetary center which is humanity itself. It will produce, when over, an increased stimulation of the intellect as it expresses itself as ordered activity upon the physical plane. It is also closely connected with the third Ray of Active Intelligence. This third ray has been in objective manifestation since 1425 A.D. and will remain in incarnation throughout the Aquarian Age. Its cycles are the longest of any of the ray cycles. However, within these major cycles there are periods of intensified activity which are like the beat or pulsation of the heart and these periods last approximately three thousand years. They are, when out of incarnation, called [137] "cycles of withdrawal but not of abstraction." They are three thousand years also in incarnation. One of these three thousand year periods of expression is now here and we can look for much development of the intellectual faculty and a marked increase of creative work during this time. This particular cycle of expression marks a climaxing point in the larger cycle. During the coming age, the intelligence of the race and its active development will assume real proportions and this with much speed.

The intensification of the life of the human center will proceed apace and this is the reason why so many people (as I have earlier hinted) will take the first initiation. Students are apt to forget that the first initiation can be described, in reality as:

  1. The grounding or externalization of the Christ principle in humanity as a whole and upon the physical plane.
  2. The flowering of the intelligence so that the initiate can work powerfully upon the mental plane and humanity itself be lifted up and aided throughout every part thereby.
  3. The coming into activity of the throat center and (because the third ray is closely connected with the first ray) the first faint orientation of the spiritual man towards Shamballa can take place, becoming more and more intensified and pronounced at the time of the third initiation. I would like here to point out the numerical correspondences:
    1. The third great world center - humanity.
    2. The activity of the third ray - active intellect.
    3. The third initiation which marks the consummation of the 1st, just as the 4th initiation marks the consummation of the second, and the fifth of the third. [138]
    4. The third major center - the throat center.
    5. The third race - the Aryan, as it expresses the first strictly human race, the Lemurian.
    6. The third plane - the physical, the reflection of the third highest plane, the atmic.
    7. The third periodical vehicle - the personality.
    8. The third divine aspect - intelligence.
    9. The third grade of divine messenger - Hercules.
    10. The sustaining Life, the third or outer Sun - the physical sun.

These are a few of the correspondences which it is helpful for us to bear in mind in so far as they reveal divine quality, spiritual intent and universal objectives.
