The Aspects & Attributes of The 7 Rays of God

The four rays of attribute, which find their synthesis in the third ray of aspect, produce the varying qualities in greater detail than do the rays of aspect. It might generally be stated that the three rays of aspect find their main expression in relation to mankind through the medium of the three periodical vehicles:

Ray I ......Power.........................Life.........................Ideas........The Monad.
Ray II......Love-Wisdom ...........Consciousness...Ideals........The Soul.
Ray III.....Active Intelligence....Appearance.........Idols..........The Personality.

They find their secondary expression in the three bodies which form the personality of man:

Ray I.................. Power ...............Ideas................. Mental Body................. Purpose. Life
Ray II .................Love................. Ideals................ Astral Body.................. Quality.
Ray III................ Intelligence........ Idols................. Physical Body................ Form.

The rays of attribute, though expressing themselves equally on all the planes, and through the periodical vehicles and the three aspects of the personality, find their main expression through one or other of the four kingdoms in nature.

Ray IV ............Harmony through Conflict........... 4th kingdom................ Human.
The Balance.
Ray V .............Concrete Knowledge.................. 3rd kingdom.............. Animal.
Ray VI ............Devotion..................................... 2nd kingdom............Vegetable.
Ray VII.......... Ceremonial Ritual......................... 1st kingdom.............. Mineral.

These are their main fields of influence in the three worlds and upon this we shall later enlarge.

In relation to mankind, these four rays of attribute find a wide expression in connection with the four aspects of the personality, or with the quaternary. The relationship is as follows:

Ray IV.............. Harmony through Conflict............... the physical body.
Ray V............... Concrete Knowledge...................... the etheric body.
Ray VI ..............Devotion ........................................the astral body.
Ray VII .............Organisation ....................................the mental body.
