If there are obstacles, not 'the infinite

If you can count, not the stars

If you tremble or shake, and not 'a mountain

If increases or decreases, is not 'an ocean

If it passes over the bridges, not 'a river

If you can 'grasp, and not' the rainbow

Here are the parables of the six external perceptions

Duane Carpenter to The Reappearance of the Christ
“The true Mysteries will also reveal themselves through science and the incentive to search for them there will be given by the Christ. The Mysteries contain, within their formulas and teachings, the key to the science which will unlock the mystery of electricity—the greatest spiritual science and area of divine knowledge in the world, the fringes of which have only just been touched. Only when the Hierarchy is present visibly on Earth and the Mysteries of which the disciples of the Christ are the Custodians are given openly to the world, will the true secret and nature of electrical phenomena be revealed.
The Mysteries are, in the last analysis, the true source of revelation; it can only be when the mind and the will-to-good are closely fused and blended and are thus conditioning human behaviour that the extent of the coming revelation can be safely grasped. There are planetary energies and forces which men as yet cannot and do not control; they know nothing of them and yet upon them the life of the planet is dependent; they are also closely related to the despised psychic powers (today so stupidly approached and ignorantly used), yet these powers (when correctly assessed and used) will prove of enormous usefulness in the sciences which the Mysteries will reveal.
The Mystery of the Ages is, through the reappearance of the Christ, on the verge of revelation. Through the revelation of the soul that Mystery (which soul knowledge veils) will stand revealed. The Scriptures of the world have ever prophesied that, at the end of the age, we shall see the revelation of that which is secret and the emergence of that which has hitherto been concealed, into the light of day. As we know, our present cycle marks the end of the Piscean age; the next two hundred years will see the abolition of death or rather of our misconceptions as to death and the firm establishing of the fact of the soul's existence; the soul will then be known to be an entity and the motivating impulse and the spiritual force behind all manifested forms. The work of the Christ (two thousand years ago) was to proclaim certain great possibilities and the existence of great powers. His work when He reappears will be to prove the fact of these possibilities and to reveal the true nature and potency of man. The proclamation He made that we were all sons of God and own one universal Father will, in the near future, no longer be regarded as a beautiful, mystical and symbolic statement, but will be regarded as a proved scientific pronouncement. Our universal brotherhood and our essential immortality will be proven to be facts in nature." (RC123-5)

Words of Power and the Vortex

First Ray: "I Assert the Fact"

"...you mentally utter this sound or word of power and visually attempt to see it performing the esoteric miracle of bridge building..." (R&I:514)
The Shape of Sound featuring John Stuart Reid (video)
The Science of the Antahkarana—The Rays and the Initiations, pages 444ff


THE PICTURE ABOVE IS AN ATTEMPT TO VISUALIZE this great sound—the first ray word of power—as it might be seen or heard on the inner planes vibrating (Figure 7-4). The image may help to stimulate the creative imagination of the occult student, who will then pursue this highly arcane process or science under more internal and subjective conditions. If students have some visual image upon which to focus they can more easily transfer this highly arcane and esoteric science up onto the higher subplanes of the mental plane.

The red elongated shafts coming down in a diagonal direction are actual pictures of a blast of sound coming out of the throat of the percussion instrument the trumpet. These physical sound waves have been converted into a visible image through sensitive recording equipment. Any enunciated sound, either on the physical or on the mental planes, creates waves or vibrational frequencies that undulate in electrical and magnetic waves. These waves will conform to the shape of the note or the key sound in which they are enunciated.

It is interesting to see that the image of the trumpet blast looks very similar to a sword, a symbol often associated with the first ray and its method of work, which is destroying old forms or clearing a path for the second and third rays to initiate their building work.

The trumpet symbology occurs in a quote by the Tibetan that clarifies this advanced first ray work and its relationship to sacrifice and the mystery of fire:


"It deals with the purposes and plans of the Silent Watchers over the three planes—the five, and the seven; it deals with the dynamic force of the great Destroying Angels on all the planes, who will eventually—through the manipulation of the three forms of energy—bring to an end all that is. These angels are a mysterious group of fohatic Lives Who sound forth the trumpets of destruction, and by means of the notes sounded produce that shattering which will set loose the energy of forms." (CF:882-83)   (Read more in A Treatise on Cosmic Fire)

From this image of a first ray alignment we can see the law of analogy, correspondence, or sympathetic vibration working out. Like attracts like, and the greater responds to the demands of the lesser. The meditator through the science of color and sound "projects" a "linking light" or "bridging radiance" through the third stage of building the antahkarana with a clear understanding of the different principles involved in this unique ray technique. What is outlined here can equally apply to the other six rays and their unique words of power.

The true sound signatures of this word of power or agent of the will would obviously be vastly greater in potency and magnitude. Different wave frequencies or vibrations in various geometric designs, colors, and sounds might be seen issuing forth from the throat of the spiritual trumpet depending on the ray invoked or enunciated.

Visually we might see this esoteric process as a dual vortex. One vortex would be positioned on the bottom of the rotating sphere or toroid and another on the top, producing something similar to the image in Figure 7-5, when visualized looking down. When the two meet and blend communication between the lesser and greater is consummated. These vortices are the symbology behind the long horn of the unicorn we have outlined and explained in Dynamic Symbols Part I Appendix IV titled "Trumpeted Words". What is the long horn of the unicorn but a symbol of rotary spiral-cyclic motion that climaxes in a searing point of piercing Will? It is an inner trumpet out of the throat of which issues forth the sounds of God's hidden Purpose, not language as we understand it, but pure first subplane devic fire. Although we have placed particular emphasis on the first ray trumpet sound form, the trumpet shape also relates to one or other ends of the dual vortex. Therefore the vortex trumpet design can be generally associated with any of the seven rays.

The Tibetan further elaborates on this science of invocation-evocation through the esoteric use of sound, light and the creation of a vortex in the follow excerpt. This same principle can be applied to the individual or the group.


"Gradually the antahkarana is built and in this way the 'greater Light and the lesser light' are consciously related. A path of light and energy is established or created between these two divine aspects. As time goes on, there appears in the egoic group what is technically known as the 'linking light' or the 'bridging radiance' . . . 

"The point of light shines forth. It waxes and it wanes. The point becomes a line through the starting of a vortex and from the centre of the whirling force; there comes a voice—invocative and clear. 

"The One Who sits in silent work, alone and unafraid (because the part is not alone and the group is unafraid) looks down, catches the light, reflects the whirling force and hears the voice." (DNA1:714-15)

Actionscript created by Dan Gries: http://www.dangries.com
See the script explained at mathandflash.com.

This flash interactive animation labeled "Particles of Light" reveals many different important occult symbols brought together into one common organic glyph. If the cursor is activated and slowly rotated over the image we can see:

1. The point within the circle, symbol of originating causes and the field of service through which any entity has chosen to work out its will.

2. The sphere and the dual vortex, which is the entry and exit point of energy in all spherical lives. In the center of the dual vortex is the central meeting place where the spiritual vacuum is created and white magic initiated.

3. How all spherical lives are composed of two vortices that can take many variations of shape or size owing to their flexible nature. Spiritual vortices and spheres, because of their ethereal and transparent nature, can also clearly exist one within the other. A lesser life, although existing independently from the main parent, can coexist simultaneously within the body of this greater life. The forms can nest, one within another.

4. The dual triangles, upper and lower fused into the dual tetrahedron, the Morgan David glyph or six-pointed star. This helps to clarify visually and through the recognition of energy how any upper triadic life can be simultaneously connected to any lower triadic life for perfect unification and continuity of consciousness. Symbols of this potency are foundational for the occult student to awaken the higher mind and intuition and to help one grasp the occult path in its wholeness.


This initiating thread or bolt of fohatic will symbolized by the black disk in the center of the illustration above, Figure 7-5, is impulsed from the first aspect of deity. When this abstract and abstruse force impacts the grosser and heavier substance of the third divine aspect a spherical life is formed. The second aspect of deity or the love principle is the radiance and the light-sound found at the heart of all occult organisms.

The vacuum is the intermediate zone symbolized by the black disk that is forming at the center of this image and is situated midway between the invocative agent and the life or force it is attempting to contact and evoke. Each ray will exhibit its own predominate color and sound signatures during this magical act of alignment, as we have attempted to demonstrate in our preceding image of the trumpet blast.

A spiritual vacuum is created when a ray mantram or word of power is enunciated on the high mental plane and is analogous to an expanding atom, shell, or bubble that is open at each end by a vortex.

We are told by the Tibetan that nature abhors a vacuum and into the vacuum some type of force or energy descends or rushes, widening and strengthening the communication between the two entities. This technique is the apotheosis of bridge-building and will require a clear point of focus by the personality in its image-making capacity.

The dual vortices and subsequent vacuum break down barriers through the rotary and spiral-cyclic motion of its expanding walls. It expands into wider concentric circles or bands until a mature sphere of some type is created.

When the vacuum is formed between the personality ray and the soul ray and later the dual rays of the personality and soul ray and the one monadic life, liberation takes place. The intermediary or soul is no longer needed and the man escapes the prison house of matter. This we know is the result of 3 secondary vortices or vacuums created between the lower triad of the personality—the concrete mind, astral body and physical–etheric—and the upper triad—atma, buddhi manas. Eventually these 3 lesser vortices fuse and become the great dual vortex between the "spirit", the one monadic life, and the integrated and fused personality, "matter".

This work is the epitome of alignment and is referred to as the completed "rainbow bridge", because it is built out of all the seven rays and their respective ray colors.

Under other conditions we are told by the Tibetan that the white magician can also create a sphere or barrier composed of atoms that can repel as well as insulate. A vacuum formation can create a barrier or wall between different entities that must be separated during advanced initiatory experiences. This is done out of the safety of the participants in these advanced rituals and not out of any desire to be separative or non-inclusive. The door of initiation is electrical in nature and only those units of the human kingdom who vibrate in unison with this door are allowed entry; all others are repelled.

Sound and light are the key agencies of all this advanced work and how all facets of the divine from the highest to the lowest are connected.

As any ray life descends to the next lower level or plane it travels as an enunciated sound. On the great path of return these sounds become more powerful and expansive as the disciple is able to raise his or her consciousness. The greater always includes the lesser but the lesser is unable to comprehend the greater. These initiatory sounds, mantrams and various words of power are held in secret by the various grades of spiritual and hierarchical workers and only shared with those who have made certain levels of progress and passed certain tests. These tests relate to the assimilation of energy in its different types and grades.

Words of Power and the Vortex

Seventh Ray: "The Highest and the Lowest Meet"

The Marriage of Shiva and Shakti


IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO CLARIFY THE GREAT REVELATION that awaits humanity when in group formation we undergo the great lifting out of the tomb of matter and face for the first time the awesome kundalini fire. This is the experience that awaits all disciples who have purified the lower form, aligned with the soul, and let the principle of love dominate their lives. It is an act or event of Identification, though the word is inadequate to describe this great expansion of the "Will-Life".



Suddenly slow and rhythmic expansions of consciousness are replaced with an explosion of light that literally projects the initiate forward into realms for which there are no adequate descriptions to qualify the stupendous moment wherein one's whole nature shrinks or contracts before the awesome spectacle of the first aspect of deity. This event destroys for all times the last vestiges of man's attachment to the physical world and connects the highest and lowest centers into one burning expression of fire that then becomes lost in pure silence or the darkness of laya that exists prior to all form life. This is the culminating meaning of the seventh ray word of power, "the highest and the lowest meet."

No one can say they have understood the true meaning of the Seventh Ray Lord until they have first lifted the great serpent power from the base of the spine center to the crown or thousand-petalled lotus. This is the seventh heaven, the seventh seal or gate so often spoken of in vague and cryptic terms by different mystical and metaphysical writers. All occult training in its different departments and grades is a prelude to this awesome lifting, the divine consummation wherein Shakti the great feminine principle fuses with Shiva to rule as one over all creation from their secret abode of electric fire.

Robert Oppenheimer, the famous nuclear physicist, helped recognize and was responsible for the first release historically of kundalini fire in the mineral kingdom. Upon first viewing the great thermo-nuclear explosion of fire and light in the first atomic bomb at White Sands, Nevada, he quoted the Bhagavad-gita when Krishna reveals his true form to Arjuna, blazing with the light of "a thousand suns all risen at once" and says: "Behold, I am Time, the mighty destroyer of worlds, come forth here to annihilate the worlds." (See our Bhagavad-gita link page, for translations and resources online.)

The next statements are important from several points of view: 1) They reflect on the physical plane the powerful transformation that awaits all advanced disciples and initiates who have prepared themselves for this great serpent uprising. 2) What James N. Rose and Robert Oppenheimer say about symbols and their inner significance echoes one of our themes regarding the power of symbolic language and how visual symbols can have a reality on a higher plane of existence.


"When asked some years after viewing the first atomic bomb explosion, he recalled that as he "saw" the billowing glowing atomic cloud of radiation he was in fact seeing the second and third derivatives (factors of mathematical Calculus equations) vanish infinitesimally. His physical eyes were looking at one reality while his mind was appreciating another perception just as conceptually real. Oppenheimer's remark points up the vitality that words and symbols have on their own, separate yet still connected via the realm of physical experience. Symbols may stand in for physical reality but they are experienced on their own and carry as much weight and importance as material things; especially when we accept and enact the involved associations. From The Integrity Papers by James N. Rose titled "The Wisdom of Robert Oppenheimer".  (See the Conceptual Institute website.)


The key phrase in this paragraph is "when we accept and enact the involved associations." "Energy follows thought." Visualization and the picture-making faculty are required in every alignment or meditational form we practice, and invite us to "enact the involved associations" and build the necessary bridges from one body, one sphere, plane, or ray to another.

Here is a quote by DK clarifying the law of correspondence and how, by creating links or bridges from one divine principle to another, a wider and more expanded view can be grasped.


"We must resign ourselves to the fact that the only way in which we can find the clue to the mystery of the rays, systems, and hierarchies, lies in the study of the law of correspondences or analogy. It is the one thread by which we can find our way through the labyrinth, and the one ray of light that shines through the darkness of the surrounding ignorance." (IHS:6)

Identification: The Divine Breath



  • 10.   Father-Mother spin a Web, whose upper end is fastened to Spirit, the Light of the One Darkness, and the lower one to its shadowy end, Matter; and this Web is the Universe, spun out of the Two Substances made in One, which is Svabhavat.

  • 11.   It expands when the Breath of Fire is upon it; it contracts when the Breath of the Mother touches it. Then the Sons dissociate and scatter, to return into their Mother's Bosom, at the end of the Great Day, and re-become one with her. When it is cooling, it becomes radiant. Its Sons expand and contract through their own Selves and Hearts; they embrace Infinitude.

THE SCIENCE OF THE BREATH IS THE SCIENCE OF LAYA YOGA and the supreme technique whereby man is taught to control all the inner forces of his different bodies and sheathes. There are many levels of pranayama. The first operates through the seventh ray charging and distributing the etheric forces throughout man's tiny system; the last operates through the first ray and has to do with awakening the great and powerful kundalini fire. The divine word of power is carried forward on the fire breath of God, and is the one all-pervading sound that peals forth through the logoic plane.

When the disciple has done the preliminary work of soul infusion he will learn the technique whereby he will fan the fires of matter until they become combustible. Then the first and seventh rays will fuse and the indwelling spirit returns to its source. Only when the disciple can "stand in spiritual being" will he understand the occult terms of divine indifferenceidentification, and isolated unity. Only when his "eye is single" will his body and his whole being be filled with light supernal.

When the individual breath of one's personal existence is relinquished and one submits to the divine breath—or the divine breath takes over—all the veils are rent and the serpent power will rise in all its glory burning out the last of the hindering veils. All "directional sounds" which constitute one or other of the seven cosmic paths of return for humanity will first be found in the personality ray and the soul ray. It is only when the greater light of spirit and the lesser light of matter merge that all can be known.

When one's individual breath is relinquished to the greater breath of the group life, then breath as we understand the term will cease, the monad will absorb the spark, and silence will finally reign supreme. Only those initiates who have learned the technique of "occult breath" and "occult obedience" can know their existence has always dwelt in another place outside of both time and space. Only then can we speak the liberating "words of power" that will free the prisoners of the planet and set ablaze in all human hearts the desire for inner growth and spiritual realization. In this regard the Tibetan has said:


"The will and the breath, my brother, are occultly synonymous terms. In this statement you have the clue to the ending of maya. God is the ONE WHO can withdraw and, in withdrawing, dispel, dissipate and devitalize all that has been created—using those words in their fullest significance."  (GWP:245)
