The Energy of Love
The second great energy that makes great potent contributions to the current world is the Ray of Love and Wisdom, which is the ray of Lord Christ. This energy is poured to the world through the second great planetary center that is known as The Hierarchy; and in manipulated by the initiates and the Masters.
The energy of love is mainly concentrated in the New Group of World Servers that has been chosen by the Hierarchy as the main channel of expression. Basically through them the potency of love-wisdom can be expressed, which is different from the sentimental and personal interest and is focused on the good of the group.
In this way with the help of those disciples who can differentiate between the petty concerns of the individual and the necessities and urgencies of the group work, the Hierarchy can work and being about the changes in the world that is change in consciousness.
Ray Two – Ray of Love-Wisdom
|Special Virtues||Calmness, strength, patience and endurance, love of truth, faithfulness, intuition, clear intelligence and serene temper.|
|Vices of Ray||Over absorption in study, coldness, indifference to others, and contempt of mental limitations in others.|
|Virtues to be acquired||Love, compassion, unselfishness, and energy.|
This ray is called the Ray of Wisdom from its characteristic desire for pure knowledge and for absolute truth – cold and selfish, if without love, and inactive without power. When both power and love are present, then you have the ray of the Buddhas and all great teachers of humanity, – those who, having attained wisdom for the sake of others, spend themselves in giving it forth. The student on this is ever unsatisfied with his highest attainments; no matter how great his knowledge, his mind is still fixed on the unknown, the beyond, and on the heights as yet unscaled.
The man with ray two will have tact and foresight; he will make an excellent ambassador, and a first rate teacher or a head of a college; as a man of affairs, he will have clear intelligence and wisdom in dealing with matters which come before him, and he will have the capacity of impressing true views of things on others and of making them see things as he does. He will make a good businessman, if modified by the fourth, fifth and seventh rays. The soldier on this ray would plan wisely and foresee possibilities; he would have an intuition as to the best course to pursue, and he would never lead his men into danger through rashness. He might be deficient in rapidity of action and energy. The artist on this ray would always seek to teach through his art, and his pictures would have meaning. His literary work would always be instructive.
The method of healing, for the second ray man, would be to learn thoroughly the temperament of the patient as well as to be thoroughly conversant with the nature of the disease, so as to use his will power on the case to the best advantage.
The characteristic method of approaching the Path would be by close and earnest study of the teachings till they become so much a part of the man’s consciousness as no longer to be merely intellectual knowledge, but a spiritual rule of living, thus bringing in intuition and true wisdom.
A bad type of ray two would be bent upon acquiring knowledge for himself alone, absolutely indifferent to the human need of others. The foresight of such a man would degenerate into suspicion, his calmness into coldness and hardness of nature.
Souls on this ray use the method of “gathering in”, or ” drawing into.” The soul sets up a vibration (little as we may yet grasp the real significance of that word) and that vibration effects it’s environment, and atoms of substance on all three planes are attracted to the central point of energy. The method of relatively gentle, when compared to the method of the first ray, and the process is somewhat longer whilst the overshadowing (carried forward prior to entering into the three worlds for purposes of appearance) is very much longer. This refers to the overshadowing of the substance to be built into form, and not to the overshadowing of the completed form, i.e the child in the mothers womb. In the first case, it might be said that souls on the first ray are sudden and rapid in their desire to incarnate, and in the methods employed. Souls on ray two are slower in coming to that impulsive action (in the sense of impulse to action and not impulse in time) which leads to the occult manufacture of an appearance with which to manifest.
Souls on this ray, as they come into incarnation through desire, attract. They are magnetic more then they are dynamic; they are constructive, and they work along the line of least resistance within our universe.
Teaching is an expression of ray two energy.
The energy of Love- Wisdom always has an effect upon every type of human being in the world. Its effect is to stimulate the tendency towards goodwill and to produce a mental development which can transmute the knowledge – garnered down the ages – into wisdom. It is wisdom which is needed today. Those who are now attempting to foster goodwill in themselves and others will be stimulated into wise action. You can see, therefore that the outpouring of this energy is the first and greatest need. It can reach mankind because The Founders Of All World Religions (referring not to their many diversifications) are banded together in unison with The Christ, their Lord and Master; through their united and directed effort, these energies will flow. Forget not that Christ represents the energy of love and Buddha that of Wisdom.
Those upon ray two fall into two groups. Generally speaking there are naturally, numerous exceptions. Souls on the wisdom aspect of ray two go to Shamballa and join the Great Council in some capacity or another. Such one was The Buddha. Those on the love aspect of the second ray tread one or the other of the various paths, primarily that of World Saviors; they become the divine Psychologists and World Teachers. The Christ combined in himself all the three great traits.
Those in this second group of souls upon ray two likewise fall into two groups: they follow the way of specialized detail and comprehensive inclusiveness, and are the outstanding occult; while the other group is distinguished by pure love. Of the group that finds it way into Shamballa a developed simplicity will be found to govern all relations.
Simplicity and unity are related, simplicity is one-pointedness of outlook, free from glamour and intricacies of the thought form-making mind; simplicity is vulgarity of purpose and steadfastness in intention and in effort, untrammelled by questioning and devious introspection; simplicity leads to simple loving, asking nothing in return; simplicity leads to silence – not silence as an escape mechanism, but as an “occult retention of speech.”
