Ten basic propositions - Three propositions Ray Lives The Seven Ray Lords -
Nature of the Soul e-reader

What is the significance of the work of the seven (rays) creative Builders, as They express the life aspect and qualify the phenomenal appearance through which the One Life manifests? The major proposition of these creative Builders are:


Proposition I

Every ray Life is an expression of a solar Life, and every planet is therefore linked with every other planet, animated by energy from one or other of the seven solar systems, and actuated by a triple stream of force.

  • The first proposition relates to the soul, or solar angel, and its realisation.

Proposition II

Every one of the rays is the recipient and custodian of various energies, coming from varying sources.


  • The second proposition relates to the mental grasp of the "inspired" man - inspired from on high by his solar angel.

Proposition III

It is the quality of a ray Life, in time and space, which determines the phenomenal appearance.

  • The third proposition, which states that quality determines the appearance, is intended to control or direct the feeling or desire life of the personality, for according to the quality of his desires will be the gradually emerging appearance.

In these three propositions we have summed up a basic teaching (on esoteric psychology). Here we can point out with success the practical efficacy of a true understanding of these rather advanced occult teachings.

If, for instance, you study the first proposition, you will note how a ray Life is an expression of a solar Life. Now take this broad idea and make it personally specific by referring the same proposition to an individual man, grasping the fact that every personality is intended to be an expression of a solar angel (soul), and is consequently linked to every other solar angel in the kingdom of souls. Each is animated by the energies coming from all the seven groups of solar angels, and is likewise in touch with the life of the planet, of the solar system, and with extra-systemic force also. Is this not of vital, practical import? Does it not warrant close study and consideration of the attitude of the personality towards life, and of the measure of success of the solar angel at any given point in time and space (which is all that the personality is, in the last analysis) as it builds and qualifies its phenomenal appearance?

Here we can see the scientific value of the study of ideals, of concentration upon the virtues and divine qualities, and upon an intellectual analysis of the divine attributes of any of the great sons of God.
