Now come the chohans of the seven rays*….
In the world of men who, it must be acknowledged, are all at varying degrees of attainment, one finds various motivations lying behind the desire to serve. The divine thought must be examined in order that motives may be purified and then tied to divine sources of greatness and strength. Thus the acts of many among men will move as God directs to form a union of cosmic effort that will prevent the energies of the children of God from being dissipated in many contradicting avenues of religious expression thereby--through error, personal idiosyncrasies and ambitions minimizing the effectiveness of the power of God upon the planetary body….
Then when individuals can understand that it is not themselves who act but God who acts through them there will be less inclination or desire to seek for a reward or for recognition by mankind. Thus the shadow of the self will not opaque the light that God desires to have shine as a city upon a hill from every individual upon the planet who has the capacity for this understanding….The form is only the vehicle through which the light of the Presence does shine, overflowing its precious essence into the world of men. The abundance of the manifestation of the Presence can be stepped up as easily as one steps on the accelerator of an automobile, causing an increase in the speed of the motor, but each individual who uses this law must be careful to see to it that there is no sense whatsoever of the personal self as the doer.
When God alone is called into action by the disciple as the power of invisible--and therefore invincible--service to one’s fellowmen wherever he walks the roses in a spiritual sense burst ‘round his feet and release their perfume into the atmosphere. This the perfume of infinite harmony, this is the Spirit of cosmic tranquility and victory, this is the Immaculate Concept in action. And I tell you there is no more valiant power that can be externalized in the world of form. It is greater by far than the power of the atom, for it is the power behind the atom that as divine love in action flows from the Great Central Sun Magnet into the chalice and forcefield of the individual and then out into the whole universe as the return current of that love which God foreknew from the beginning…. I AM your advocate of goodwill,11:1
*chohans of the rays:
Qualities of God keyed as seven primary rainbow rays are focalized by highly adept masters (chohans) thereof….The chohans always obey cosmic Law (having been long tested, thoroughly trained and well guided from on high), yet they are given certain latitude (under the hierarchs above them in the chain of Being which include Gautama Buddha) in keeping with their manifest individual evolution, capacities and special endowments to direct mankind in the most adroit manner, giving such loving assistance and spiritual direction as may be the requirement of the hour. They retain in their service legions of angelic hosts and ascended brethren who carry out the plan of the Great White Brotherhood for the most complete expression of the seven rays that is possible among the mankind of earth.
Individuals are keyed to certain rays in order that they may perform a special service to God and man. The ray of service to which an individual is attuned may vary from one embodiment to the next, but the reward for service is cumulative. And thus powerful momentums may be retained from one’s past services on several or all of the rays; a balance of the seven is a requirement for the ascension and the mark of a golden-age man.
Statesmen, leaders and organizers are on the first ray under beloved El Morya; teachers, philosophers and educators serve on the second ray under beloved Lanto; artists, designers, beauticians and those of a creative nature serve on the third ray under beloved Paul the Venetian; architects, planners and those dedicated to the purity and discipline of any undertaking serve with beloved Serapis Bey on the fourth ray; doctors, scientists, healers, musicians, mathematicians and those consecrated to truth serve on the fifth ray with beloved Hilarion; ministers, nurses and all who administer to mankind’s needs assist beloved Nada on the sixth ray; diplomats, priests of the sacred fire, actors, writers and defenders of freedom serve with beloved Saint Germain on the seventh ray. If a student finds that he is lacking in any of the Godly attributes he may make calls to his God Presence, his own Holy Christ Self and the chosen of the ray which he desires to amplify in his world. Great strides of spiritual progress can thus be made in a comparatively short time.
