Masculine and feminine nations

It is useful to bear in mind that some nations are negative and feminine and others are masculine and positive. France and Russia are feminine and constitute the nurturing mother aspect. They are feminine in their psychology - intuitive, mystical, alluring, beautiful, fond of display and colour, and with the faults also of the feminine aspect, such as over emphasis upon the material aspects of life, upon pageantry, upon possession and upon money or its equivalent as a symbol of the form side of existence. They mother and nurture civilisation and ideas.

Germany, Great Britain and Italy are masculine and positive; they are mental, political, governing, standardising, group-conscious, occult by inclination, aggressive, full of grandeur, interest in law and in laying the emphasis upon race and empire. But they are more inclusive and think in wider terms than the feminine aspects of divine manifestation.

 It is stated, that Australia (soul ruler Virgo), Canada (Taurus), India (Aries), New Zealand (Gemini) and South Africa (Aries) are countries related to their mother-country (Great Britain) through their planetary rulers. The zodiacal signs relate, but the planets are more influential at this stage of evolution. This definite hint of the Tibetan may – by analogy - also apply to Europe, in the sense, that the European countries may be related to the European origin as a continent through their planetary rulers.

Soul purpose of France

Some years ago we indicated that from France will come a great psychological or soul revelation, which will bring illumination to world thought.

When the intellect of the French is turned towards the discovery and the elucidation of the things of the spirit, then they will carry revelation to the world. When their soul ray dominates the third ray and when the separative action of the fifth ray is transmuted into the revealing function of this ray, then France will enter into a period of new glory. Her empire will then be of the mind and her glory of the soul.

The energy of the fifth ray, which is the soul ray of the French nation, can make its potency felt in the stress and misery of the present world condition, then to France may be given the ultimate glory of proving to the world the fact of the soul and of giving a demonstration of the technique of soul control. The soul pattern may be translated by the genius of the French intellect into terms, which humanity can understand and a true psychology of the soul may come into being.

Soul purpose of Germany

The genius of Germany has often in the past been expressed along the line of its fourth ray soul, and through that soul pattern Germany has given to the world much of the outstanding music and philosophy to mankind along the line of its fourth ray soul. When this is again manifested, and the soul pattern is more strongly impressed upon the German consciousness, we shall begin to comprehend the significance of the ‘superman’. Germany can give us the pattern of the superman, and this is its ultimate destiny.

Soul purpose of Great Britain

One of the services, which Great Britain can render at this time is to come to the aid of world peace and live up to her motto, "I serve," by acting as an interpreter.

Great Britain is one of the few greater nations that are definitely under the influence of the second Ray of Love-Wisdom. An interesting fact thus emerges: Great Britain is the custodian of the wisdom aspect of this second ray energy for the race.
If England's ideal of justice (which is the pattern of its personality ray) can be transformed by her soul ray of love into just and intelligent world service, then she will give to the world the pattern of that true government which is the genius of the soul quality of the British.
Great Brittain, through its succesful demonstration of the principle of federation, can affect major changes in Europe, if there is an awakened insight, a true and sympathic justice and wise patience.

Soul purpose of Italy

Italy carries forward her plans; she stands steadily for peace. Her motto, esoterically stated, is: "I carve the Paths." This will be true eventually in the spiritual as well as in the literal sense. Rome was the great road builder and road maker of Europe in the far distant past.

The whole field of religion will be re-inspired and re-orientated from Rome because the Master Jesus will again take hold of the Christian Church in an effort to re-spiritualise it and to re-organise it.

Soul purpose of Russia

Spiritual harmlessness is the basic principle of the national ideology of Russia. Hence also the essential brotherliness which is imposed by the idealism and the mystical aspiration of the Russian genius, expressed through its people as a whole. Hence also the correctness of their spiritual motto which is as yet unrealised by them but which is working itself out noticeably to those of us who can see upon the inner side of life. That motto is: "I link two ways." Their task, which will develop as they come to truer understanding, is the linking of the East and of the West, and also of the worlds of desire and of spiritual aspiration, of the fanaticism which produces cruelty and the understanding which produces love, of a developed materialism and a perfected holiness, of the selfishness of a materialistic regime and the unselfishness of a mystically and spiritually minded people, and all this in a most pronounced and peculiar manner. Behind the closed borders of that mysterious and magnificent country, a great and spiritual conflict is proceeding and the rare mystical spirit and the truly religious orientation of the people is the eternal guarantee that a true and living religion and culture will finally emerge. Out of Russia - a symbol of the world Arjuna in a very special sense - will emerge that new and magical religion about which I have so often told you. It will be the product of the great and imminent Approach, which will take place between humanity and the Hierarchy. From these two centres of spiritual force, in which the light which ever shineth in and from the East will irradiate the West, the whole world will be flooded with the radiance of the Sun of Righteousness. I am referring (in connection with Russia) to the appearance of a great and spiritual religion which will justify the crucifixion of a great nation and which will demonstrate itself and be focussed in a great and spiritual Light which will be held aloft by a vital Russian exponent of true religion - that man for whom many Russians have been looking and who will be the justification of a most ancient prophecy.

Russia will eventually place its emphasis and direct its major interest upon Asia, bringing about great changes on that continent, as far as the Pacific. 

The will-to-be of Humanity with its almost extravagant emphasis upon human values and the will-to-rule creatively is the contribution of Russia.

The Shamballa force is active, for it produces federation and synthesis. Its first great expression or demonstration of the spirit of fusion led to the formation of countries like Italy and Germany, which were created out of many smaller states, duchies and kingdoms. This is a trend towards fusion in the modern world.

Soul purpose of Spain

Spain, like Russia, acts as a link in world adjustment but this time the link is between Europe and Africa, and in this capacity Spain has earlier served.
