[14:34] <ron> THE ASTROLOGICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF THE SEVEN RAYS
[14:35] <ron> THE SEVEN RAYS ARE DIVIDED INTO TWO GROUPINGS
[14:35] <ron> Rays One, Two and Three are the Primary Rays or ~Rays of Aspects~ that is, the three essential aspects of Divinity.
[14:35] <ron> Rays Four through Seven are called the ~Rays of Attribute~ as they express the attributes of the first three Rays in greater detail of manifestation, and are combinations of the qualities of the Primary Rays.
[14:36] <ron> In actuality, Rays Four through Seven emanate from the Third Ray of Active Intelligence, whilst this Third Ray is actually a product of the energies of Rays One and Two.
[14:37] <ron> These Seven Energies enter our Solar system through the Twelve Gates of the zodiac, and each one of the Seven is primarily focused through three of the signs. Thus the twelve signs are the vehicles for the sevenfold energies of manifestation representing the Trinity of Life, which is essentially and even One.
[14:37] <ron> The Seven Rays should be seen as being much closer to the basic energies of life than their expressions through the archetypes of the 12 signs which are further differentiations of expression of the Seven Rays. It is for this reason that a greater understanding of the Seven will lead one to a deeper and more penetrating attunement to the Twelve.
[14:41] <ron> for me, right now, the Monad, or unity, has the same meaning as what Cayce called the Spirit consisting of spirit, will and mind [the biblical image]...or the Higher Self...the upper Triad...the Father in Heaven, or the Divine Self . Was that a help?
[14:41] <Blu> yes ron
[14:41] <ron> [14:41] <ron> As theosophy teaches that man is a Monad, a sacred flame, an unchanging Monad, but that his ego must unfold through change. Consider yourself then, a human Monad, and indivisible permanent atom on the wheel or rebirth. The divine part of you is responsible for spiritual self consciousness. Through the:
[14:41] <ron> <ron> for me, right now, the Monad, or unity, has the same meaning as what Cayce called the Spirit consisting of spirit, will and mind [the biblical image]...or the Higher Self...the upper Triad...the Father in Heaven, or the Divine Self
[14:42] <ron> in Cayce's study of Revelation, the Higher Self is referred to as the Overself
[14:43] <ron> this Overself is the Intelligence in charge of one of the centers
[14:43] <ron> of which, there can be 7 intelligences, or 7 angels
[14:43] <ron> moving on sorry for the diversion
[14:44] <ron> 1st Ray - You have an ~ATMIC BODY~ responsible for your spiritual will.
[14:44] <diane> was a good diversion, ron
[14:44] <Blu> it's interesting Ron!
[14:45] <ron> 2nd Ray - You have a ~BUDDHIC BODY~ responsible for your Soul, and its evolution through enlightenment; your intuition comes through the universal mind.
[14:46] <ron> Atma = Universal Spirit, divine monad, also called the Supreme Soul
[14:47] <ron> Buhddic = the Christ Consciousness.......or Universal Soul, or mind...what theosophy calls the 6th principle...Atma, being the 7th principle, or highest
[14:48] <ron> are these definitions a little helpful?
[14:48] <Blu> yes ron
[14:49] <ron> they should be remembered so eventually all the little pieces will make some sense
[14:49] <ron> moving on
[14:49] <ron> 3rd Ray - You have ~MANAS~, the upper abstract mental center. This is your higher mental vehicle for Soul unfoldment through which the Monadic ray manifests itself.
[14:51] <ron> i think the Christ Consciousness, or Nirvana, should be in the upper abstract mind...so adjust along the way with me...things do become confusing for me as well
[14:51] <ron> i draw upon the studies that i did back in the 70s
[14:54] <ron> 3rd Ray - You have ~MANAS~, the upper abstract mental center. This is your higher mental vehicle for Soul unfoldment through which the Monadic ray manifests itself.
[14:54] <ron> 4th Ray - This is your linking ray. All rays use it for interaction.
[14:56] <ron> by the way, as we all know by now, that Meditation is a means of Integrating the Lower triad/apex pointing upwards, with the Upper Triad, which is pointing downwards...when achieved you have the Star of David
[14:57] <ron> moving on
[14:57] <ron> 5th Ray - you have a ~MENTAL BODY~ (lower mental vehicle). This is used for concrete and formal thought, for knowledge seeking and learning objectively. This mental body is the one used for attaining discipleship. Meditation will quicken your consciousness.
[14:58] <ron> see how the mind is divided as upper and lower...this reminds me of the sign of Gemini, the Twins
[15:04] <ron> 6th Ray - You have an ~astral body~ through which you learn to control emotions and desires. Since mind and desire are entangled they must be separated, analyzed, and consciously directed. Self-control is required to check unruly emotions.
