is working the three Primary Rays together by replacing the
3rd Ray with the 7th Ray. It is the solution to the problem
that we are re-active to the level above our polarized centre,
and when considering Heart polarization this would be the
Throat, giving accentuation to the 3rd Ray and its concentration
on devic form and its imaginative content based on illusionary
concepts. This over stimulation of the 3rd Ray through our
Throat Centre is a significant part of our present human problem,
the time we have been polarised in our Solar Plexus we have
had the centre above as a controlling factor, the Heart with
its conscience, which functions above the levels of emotion
and thought when it is working correctly. When we are repolarised
through the Heart we have the next higher centre to guide
or control us, which is the Throat Centre as the natural channel
for 3rd Ray devic forces.
if this is seen as separate to the other two higher centres
rather than part of the triplicity which comprises the Higher
Self, it will use it's energies to concentrate on separative
thought; structure rather than ideas; the glorification of
form and sensation; or as a kind of psychism manifesting as
religious / political fanacticism, hearing angelic voices
and seeing alien presences; and encouraging those with weak
wills to act on their illusions ~ "God told me to". These
alternative realities, including many that most of us "take
for granted", are devic based and separative in nature, and
subconsciously condition and 'advise' our responses according
to the nature of the devic forces currently active in the
individual, without the Divine guidance of the complete Higher
Self which includes the 2nd and 1st Primary Ray influences
of Unconditional Love and Divine Will.
can be seen as the process of integrating the higher three
centres, the Crown, Head and Throat representing the three
Primary Rays of Will, Consciousness and Form, into one; and
earthing the energies of the triplicate Higher Self into the
life and affairs of the aspirant by working with the 7th Ray
through the Throat Centre rather than the 3rd Ray. This will
secure the 4th Ray firmly in the Heart giving it a natural
foundation on which to work with the dualities of existence
originating on the buddhic/intuitional.
our still limited awareness may not be able to understand
it concretely, our Higher Self will then have gained access
to the co-operation of the devic entities of that 4th intuitional
(buddhic) plane who will naturally make connections between
the seemingly independent manifestations of the Plan working
out through the focalized 7th Ray points of individuality.
this will be the stage prior to that initiatory point when
the awareness can be raised to its rightful position on the
Monadic 2nd plane of pure consciousness as the fully realized
transition into group awareness begins with the 4th Ray as
a process, and ends with the 2nd Ray as a realization.
none of this can begin until the early stages of transformation
and integration of the personality vehicle are initiated internally
by the aspirant, so that the energies of the Soul Ray can
work efficiently and absent of illusion from the top down
in the cycle of manifestation known as the magic of consciousness.
now from the personal to the cosmic, I'd like to relate these
ideas to the Wisdom teachings of Lucille Cedercrans.
viewing synthesis as the unification of the three aspects
of the Higher Self, and substituting the 7th Ray for the 3rd
Ray, perhaps we could use this role of synthesis in our personal
development as an analogy to understand more about the position
of the Ashram of Synthesis, which functions with the Monadic
energy of Shamballa. So just as the Hierarchy stands between
Humanity and Shamballa, so too does the Synthetic Ashram stand
between the seven Ray-Ashrams of Hierarchy and the three Primary
Ashrams of Shamballa which are really One, Divine Will, the
evolutionary process we refer to as Divine Purpose. The positive
pole is Shamballa and the negative pole is Hierarchy - and
the Synthetic Ashram is the connecting field of synthesized
consciousness in its 1st, 2nd and 7th Primary Ray aspects
focalized through the Monad of Synthesis as soular energy.
ashram, while it is a fact in nature, exists in consciousness
Lucille Cedercrans, The Nature Of The Soul, page 190)
importance here is that if we identify our consciousness with
our Soul Ray we can learn to respond to Shamballa via the
energies of the Synthetic Ashram and become conscious instruments
of Divine Purpose by developing the group awareness which
this process requires ~ as above so below.
intuitive perceptions clearly demonstrate that although the
synthetic energy of the Ashram of Synthesis may be a new energy,
because of its unique position it should not be thought of
as an "additional" ray energy ~ but a synthesis of the triplicate
nature at the heart of all seven rays. Therefore I see one's
Soul Ray as the potential carrier wave for this new Monadic
frequency of synthesis.
