previous period of physical incarnation of the greater 1000-year
period of the 1st racial ray lasted from 1,000 B.C. to 0 A.D.
date of 1000 BC is significant because around that time four very
distinctive civilized traditions began to take shape in Greece,
the Middle East, India and China. Though the four major civilizations
of the 1st ray epoch were set apart by different cultural traditions,
and by distinct religious and philosophical world views, all found
their expressions inspired by the great 1st ray cycle of the planetary
Manu and the Lord of the World.
The brief narrative
time line that follows however, appertains only in reference to
Hebrew history (c.1000 B.C. -0 A.D.)
For the student
of ray chronology, the Plan and esoteric history, it is of particular
interest to study this past period of the 1st ray for several
major reasons. Chief among them is the fact the Hebrew Race is
ruled by the 1st ray, on the soul level, and, demonstrates highly
instructive and observable historical attributes and qualities.
House of David through its descendants gave birth, as foretold
by Old Testament prophets, to Jesus Christ, who, under the Will
of the Lord of the World had to reappear on Earth, at the close
of the great cycle, in visible Presence. He had to preside over
the materialization of the Kingdom of God on Earth, and He had
to re-institute the Mysteries of Initiation in such a form that
they would prove the basis of the New World Religion.
Above all, Jesus
had to reveal the nature of the Will of God. The issuing of the
fiat of the Cyclic Will of the Manu ever requires the institution
of new kingdoms, religions, rulers, orders, laws, regimes, language
and speech in strict conformity with the new era of divine dispensation.
The Law of Moses was identical to the Law of Manu. Through the
power of the spoken word and enunciated sound issued from Mt.
Sinai so was enriched the existent racial and religious vocabulary
of the Hebrew race.
the 1000-year Monadic Ray cycle of the Manu brought forth, at
its close, the most advanced and new human genetic racial prototype
of all time, the Hebrew Christ.
As well, this
historical period is a rich field of exploration wherein the ray
historian finds leading exponents of the actively mobilized 1st
ray Ashram of the time such as Solomon, a previous incarnation
of Mahatma M. and the great initiate warrior David to name only
two among a number of notables. History informs us, David, the
second King of Israel, succeeds Saul in about 1000 B.C. David
ruled longer than any other Jewish King, about 40 years and was
the Israelitish King Arthur. He accomplished wonderful achievements,
albeit through years of bloody conquest, and established a government
in all Syria and Idumea. His rule extended from Armenia and Assuria
on the north and northeast, the Syrian Desert and Persian Gulf
on the east, Arabia on the South and Egypt on the west.
of the House of the David is the major historical first ray inspired
event involving the mobilization of the 1st ray Ashram and the
department of the Manu.
that for 1000-years the Hebrew Nation crowned its kings until
the first Roman Procurator ruled in the province of Judea in 6
A.D. The House of David is the illuminating symbol because the
Old Testament prophets had declared that the Messiah would be
a descendent from the House of David and according to the New
Testament Jesus was descended from the House of David.
The reigns of
David and Solomon, the two great Hebrew kings and their empires
are key landmark symbols and inaugurate the opening of the great
1st ray epoch. Another outstanding monument of the 1st ray period
is the Temple of Solomon.
Monadic racial ray period of the Manu transforms through racial
conquest, separation and segregation, the existing boundaries
and territories of the kingdoms and nation-states of the world
civilizations of the time, necessitating the redrawing of new
has made its impact felt throughout the world through the Laws
of Moses, racial conquest and religious thought as expressed in
the Bible. The Bible or Torah is not so much a book as a library
of books, a collection of writings that evolved over many centuries
and did not become completely fixed in its classic form until
the first century B.C.
The whole theme
of the Old Testament, from the esoteric viewpoint, is, in reality,
built around the development and growth of the nucleus of our
present Aryan root race. Symbolically speaking, the inhabitants
of Noah's ark and their descendants and the Jewish race stand
for the salvaged remnant of humanity - salvaged in spite of themselves
and in face of stupendous difficulties by the Great White Lodge
during the time of Atlantis. Those who survived are symbolically
spoken of in the Bible as those who were saved in Noah's ark.
In the Old Testament in the story of Moses he went up into the
Mount of Sinai and there received the Ten Commandments. This is
the expression of divine law as adapted for humanity and as needed
in the projection of those forces that will destroy, purify and
reorganize. Moses, the great 1st ray initiate and Lawgiver, there
encountered the glory of the Lord of the World.
of time when the great 1st ray period was in planetary control
was in the time of the Old Testament. Symbolically speaking, it
is significant to note the Old Testament opens with the appearance
of the raven, the symbol of the "raging waters" at the
time of the founding of the ancient world, as we can begin to
know it. The Old Testament starts therefore with a raven, the
New Testament starts with a dove. Experience starts with the bird
of matter, the Raven and ends with the bird of spirit - the Dove.
Hebraic history as narrated in the Old Testament is violent in
the extreme and on par with modern day accomplishment of racial
genocide and ethnic cleansing. The Jews are portrayed in their
own history are shown as great aggressors by taking the Promised
Land at the point of the sword, sparing neither man, woman nor
period in history in which the Hebrew race crowned its kings is
the history of a 1st ray incited and inspired aggressor race,
that believed that they were carrying out the Will of God, taking
away from other races of people their land, cities, homes and
property. Palestine was conquered and taken by the Jews because
it was "a land flowing with milk and honey," (this was
not symbolic in the days of its use, but a presented objective
of Jewish (Diaspora) travels).
True to 1st
ray form, under the 1st ray period that began 3000-years ago it
is significant to note, the word "love" as it concerns
racial relation to other people and cultures is lacking in the
presentation of the Hebrew Religion, though love of Jehovah is
taught with due threats. The view of a future life, dependent
upon conduct and behavior to other races and goodwill to all peoples
is almost entirely lacking in The Old Testament as well, and teaching
on immortality is nowhere emphasized; in other words, the presentation
is devoid of 2nd ray attributes; salvation dependent upon the
observance of strict physical laws and rules related to worship,
physical cleanliness and diet.
(1000 B.C-0 A.D.)
1st sub-ray: (1000-900)
1,000 - 990
The founding of
the House of David occurs under the inspiration of the Vulcan
sub-ray period. It is the landmark event and David the key historical
990 - 980
Under the influence
of the Jupiter 2nd ray decade the Hebrew kingdom expands its territory
and boundaries through a series of successful wars against the
Ammonites, Moabites and other neighboring people. David defeats
the Philistines and ends the threat to the security of Israel.
980 - 970
Under the influence
of the Saturn sub-ray David formed an alliance with the Phonecians
who sent badly needed craft workers and supplies to Israel. The
economy and prosperity of Israel begins to become strengthened
970 - 960
During the end
of his reign, under the Mercurial ray of War, David's son's plotted
and struggled among themselves to see who would succeed him. His
son Absalom rebelled against him only to be killed by David's
soldiers. According to the Bible, these troubles were punishment
for the moral sin of having commited adultery with Bathsheba,
having her husband Uriah, the Hittite killed, and marrying her.
David dies about 960 B.C.
960 - 950
Under the Venus
sub-ray period we find Solomon, powerful, wise and luxurious.
He tried to consolidate the kingdom that David had won. During
the fourth year of his reign Solomon began building the Temple
to Jehovah, (956-48) finishing it in about seven or eight years
and using an enormous amount of gold and silver. As well, he composed
works on natural history and practical philosophy. The book of
Ecclesiastes, the Song of Solomon, and a large part of Proverbs
are attributed to Solomon.
950 - 930
Under the Mars
sub-ray period, the greatness of Solomon's success and popularity
led to pride and self-indulgence. He indulged the religious beliefs
of his some 1,000 wives and mistresses by building pagan shrines
where they could worship and burn incense to other gods. This
action paved the way for the influence of idolatry upon the Hebrew
940 - 930
During the 7th
sub-ray period, Solomon's ships transported goods, gold, peacocks,
ivory etc, from India, southern Arabia, and Ethiopia. The material
life of luxury and indulgence grew and reached new heights.
930 B.C. - 900
The next thirty
years witnessed the decline of the Hebrew people. During the three
destructive or wrecking sub-rays on the ingoing sub-ray cycles
the prosperity of Israel dwindled greatly and economic hardship
became widespread. Solomon's people revolted against high taxes
and the system of forced labor that supported his extravagant
building projects. His last years were embittered by personal
disillusionment and by hostility at home and abroad. After Solomon's
death (circa 937) his son Rehomboam, could not hold the Hebrew
Empire together. In about 922 B.C., the Ten Tribes broke away
and set up the Northern Kingdom of Israel.
2nd sub-ray: (900-800) White/blue. I/2
Under the duration
of the 2nd sub-ray we find the epoch of the divided Kingdoms.
The ten tribes of Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Zebulan, Issachar, Dan,
Gad, Asher, Naphtali, and Joseph split from Benjamin and Judah
in the south and set up the Kingdom of Israel in the north. The
two kingdoms were politically divided but remained, under the
2nd ray inspired period, religiously united.
(800-700) White/green. I/3
Under the Saturn-inspired
third sub-ray period a series of religious thinkers and prophets
appear and develop many of the key intellectual principles of
Judaism, including Elijah, Isaiah, Amos and Jeremiah. Isaiah and
Ezekiel are the two Hebrew prophets who had true prophetic and
The prophet Isaiah
(777-692 BC) as the Assyrian empire threatened the existence of
Israel proclaimed that the threat was a warning from God to a
godless people. Isaiah urged the kings of Judah to pursue justice
and avoid dangerous alliances, trusting in God's protection instead.
Isaiah held that if it is God who decides the destiny of nations,
security is for God to grant and for men to deserve. Isaiah promised
that a messiah would eventually appear to offer salvation.
The Hebrew Prophet
Elijah (c.927- c.850 BC) saved the Yahweh religion from corruption
by nature worship of Baal. During the time of king Ahab, Phoenician
deities were introduced and worshipped in Israel. When the prophet
Elijah became the leader of the Jehovic countermovement he denounced
the courtly corruption and attacked the Baal cult. Elijah proclaimed
that there was no reality except the God of Israel. He also taught
the idea of salvation being bestowed on the purified true believers.
In (c.882 -798
B.C.) the Prophet Elisha succeeded Elijah in the struggle to maintain
the worship of Yaweh in the face of the invading cult of the Phoenician
god Baal. Jehu was anointed as king of Israel by a delegate of
Elisha, the prophet called upon the king to do away with the Baal
cult. Israel becomes weaker and weaker during this epoch however,
caught up in a series of internal political intrigues and assassinations.
The life of luxury and dissipation was great and spiritual indifference
grew. Sargon and the Assyrians obliterated the northern kingdom
of Israel in 722 B.C.
(700-600) White/yellow. I/4
During the Mercury-ruled
fourth sub-ray period the Ten Northern Tribes lose their culture
and national identity. The ten northern tribes became assimilated
by the people of the countries where they were deported. In the
last quarter of the seventh century Deuteronomy, the Book of the
Law, the landmark symbol of the period, is found. This document
contains many of the rules for the ethics, morals, behavior and
worship followed by the Hebrews.
(600-500) White/orange. I/5
The power of the
Manu to separate and divide races and nations under the fifth
ray is great. The second decade of the fifth century in the sequence
witnesses the period of captivity known as the Babylonian Exile.
The kingdom of Judah suffered Israel's fate in 586 B.C. and was
extinquished at the hands of Nebuchadnezzar, the Babylonian Emperor.
The notables and the elite were deported to Babylonia. The Chaldean
Magi were the masters of the Jews in their their knowledge of
the Ageless Wisdom. It was under the Venusian ray of the Soul,
during the period of Captivity, that the Jews learned the metaphysical
and practical tenets of the Secret Doctrine. The Archaemenian
Emperor Cyrus, after defeating Babylonia in 538, gave permission
for the Babylonian diaspora to re-emigrate en masse to Judaea
but the numbers that returned with Zerubbabel and later with Ezra
and Nehemiah were insignificant compared with the total numbers
of the Diaspora in Babylonia. Before 586 the Judahite community
in the world was identical with the population of Kingdom of Judah.
The fifth sub-ray period therefore, marks the dividing line between
the Pre-Exilic and the Post-Exilic Jews.
(500-400) White/red. I/6
During the red
note of the Mars sub-ray epoch, control of Jerusalem passes to
the priests of the Temple and the city becomes a thriving religious
center. In powers of the priests in the Temple are upheld by the
various Kings. The masterful Babylonian Jewish reformer Ezra,
circa 450 B.C., compiles and writes the Pentateuch, and the rest
of the Old Testament, except Jehemiah and Malachi. Under the inspiration
of the sixth sub-ray, Ezra was, in a special sense, the real founder
(400-300) White/violet. I/7
The sect of the
Sadducees is founded about 400 B.C. by Sardoc, the pupil of Simon
the Just through Antigonus Saccho. Among their number the most
eminent of the Jewish high priests were furnished.
(300 -0 A.D.)
The cycle of the
first Ray being at its close, the first hour for the disappearance
of the Mysteries struck on the clock of the Hebrew race. The periods
of duration of the abstracting rays, incidental to the ingoing
sub-ray cycle, is marked by a series of foreign rulers in Judah
including the Macedonian conqueror, Alexander the Great, then
his successors, the Ptolemies of Egypt and the Seleucids of Syria,
culminating finally in Roman conquest.
(300 - 200) White/white. I/1
Under the destructive
power of the I/1 on the ingoing period the foreign culture and
customs of the Greeks are brought to Judah.
200 - 100) White/blue. I/2
Under the ingoing
destructive aspect of the 2nd sub-ray period, King Antiochus of
Syria tried to force Greek ways of life on the people of Jerusalem
and force the Jews to give up their religion. Jerusalem had its
Temple plundered, and its Sacred Books, namely the Bible made
up by Ezra and finished by Judas Maccabeus, was lost.
100 B.C. - 0 A.D.
Under the wrecking
aspect of the 3rd Ray, Jerusalem became weakened by the internal
power struggle between the Sadducees and the Pharisees. The Sadducees
and the Pharisees violently disagree over Jewish law and other
religious matters with fighting sometimes breaking out. Finally,
Jesus declares war against the Pharisees, and the proud Sadducees
and delivers a death-blow to the old religion.
the historical chronology of the first Ray timeline was, as earlier
stated, constructed only in relation to structure of epoch-events
in the ancient Hebrew Empire. The enlightened student of the Esoteric
chronology and the history of the world, could of course expand
the outline to include peoples, processes and events which also
happened at the same time in say, India, China, Egypt, Kelto -Gaulic
civilization or Greece. Should one do so he would find, for example,
the flourishing of the Occult Mysteries during its seven outgoing
sub-ray periods, but under the wrecking forces incidental to its
withdrawing or ingoing cycle, from Central Asia and on the northern
border of India, to Central Gaul, the swords of Alexander and
Caesar sweeping away from the path of their conquests, every vestige
of the Ancient Mysteries, their armies sacking the temples, burning
the literary treasures and massacring the populations. The Sacred

the hierarchical method as it embodies the divine autocracy, and
it is the line whereby the Lord of the World imposes His Will
line is closely linked to the Lords of Karma, and it is through
the Manu's department that the Law of Cause and Effect is wielded.
The four Lords of Karma work closely with the Manu, for they impose
the Law, and He manipulates the forms of men, of continents, of
races, and of nations so that that karmic law may be duly worked
out. The basic school of occultism is that one which has its root
in the sacred center of the planet, Shamballa. All proceeds under
strict law and order.

for the new centennial cycle of occultism and the new world racial

truth and the new civilization can be erected now, slowly and
with due care, decade by decade, in conformity with the divine
blueprints and in response to a sensitive reaction to the highest
The 1st ray
line is the path of Occult Science as just mentioned and disciples
and initiate students of this science must bring to bear upon
them, all that they have of mental application and concentrated
attention. This involves also the steady practical working out
of the esoteric truths apprehended. Today, for the mass of men,
occultism is non-existent; for the aspirant and the disciple,
the Ageless Wisdom is rapidly becoming the major source and system
of revelation as they penetrate into the wisdom of the Hierarchy.
It is immediately
obvious that the work of the 1st ray disciple is, therefore, almost
entirely within the realm of direction and control of energy,
power and forces. The study of occultism is the study of powerful
forces and of their origin and effects. The 1st ray Ashram is
the place wherein this study
enters the laboratory or experimental stage and the affiliated
disciple is supposed to be in process of becoming aware of the
forces and energies which condition him as an individual; these
originate within himself and produce changes and specific effects
in his life-expression upon the physical plane. When he knows
himself to be a sum-total of forces, and a controlling energy,
then he can be a world disciple and work significantly in the
Ashram of the Mahatma M. in the department of the Manu, under
the Will of the Lord of the World.
agenda of the Manu is largely concerned with world governments,
with planetary politics, and with the founding, direction, and
dissolution of racial types and forms. He has to work with the
forms through which Spirit is to manifest; he destroys, and builds

immediately connected with Aryan affairs and those people who
are concerned with the coming sixth root-race. The Department
Plans of the Manu are prepared for many centuries ahead, before
they will be required, and in the wise foreknowledge of the Manu
nothing is left to sudden eventuation, but his Will moves in ordered
cycles and under rule and law, though within human and planetary
karmic limitations. To the Manu is committed the Will and Purpose
of the Planetary Logos. He knows what is the immediate objective
for this cycle of evolution over which he has to preside, and
his work concerns itself with making the Will of the Lord of the
World an accomplished fact. He works in closer cooperation with
the building devas than does his great Brother, the Christ, for
to him is given the work of setting the root-race type, of segregating
the sub-race groups out of which the new race will develop, of
manipulating the forces which move the earth's crust, of raising
and lowering continents. He it is that is directing the minds
of statesmen everywhere so that the world racial government will
proceed as desired, and planetary conditions be brought about
which will produce those needed for the fostering of the new 6th
energy that flows through the Manu emanates directly from the
head center of the Planetary Logos, passing to him through the
brain of Sanat Kumara, who focalizes all the planetary energy
within Himself. The Manu works by the means of a dynamic meditation,
conducted within his head center, and produces his results through
his perfect realization of that which has to be accomplished,
through a power to visualize that which must be done to bring
about accomplishment, and through a capacity to transmit creative
and destructive energy to those affiliated souls on his ray line.
The Manu conducts his work and brings it all about through the
vibration power of enunciated sound.
The Manu in this
time of planetary urgency, from love of the life aspect, from
understanding of the Plan, as well, as from love of humanity,
is sending forth dynamic energy that is form destroying and brings
death to those material forms and organized bodies which hinder
the free expression of the His new forms for the fresh life cycle.
1st racial ray period of the Manu is comprised of 100 years, termed
an " occult century" reaching its high water mark at
its 7th sub-ray period.
Keep in mind;
since the 1st Ray is the Monadic Ray of the Logos of Earth, from
one point of view, it is never out of objectivity but continually,
with sustained effort, driving the natural rhythm of growth and
the forward moving progression of planetary events and human affairs.
From one angle, it is of course always in manifestation for it
is the ray which holds the planet and all that is upon it in one
coherent manifesting whole; the reason for this coherent synthesis
is the evolutionary effort to work out divine purpose. The first
ray ever implements that purpose. From another angle, it is cyclic
in its manifestation; here I mean from the angle of recognized
manifestation - and such is the case at this time.
Under the 1st
ray type of cyclic force emanating from the Lodge, the high water
mark of its activity is to be found once in every seven cycles.
All that originates on that Ray is controlled by spiral-cyclic
efforts based upon the number 10 and its multiples, and finding
its highest cyclic vibration, as it happens,
during the last quarter of each century.
This ray concerns
primarily that group of adepts who are on the 1st ray line of
energy, and will necessarily affect greatly all disciples and
people on a similar line. At the same time, the 1st ray Ashram's
work thus, initiated is endorsed by the Lodge as a whole, for
it transmits the dynamic 1st ray force of the Head center of the
Lord of the World, a major emanation of the planetary Logos.
period is naturally of great importance owing to the fact that
the 1st ray-energy is one of the three major Rays; but it will
be, in the equilibrizing process, balanced by analogous cyclic
emanatory activity from the lesser 500-year 2nd ray and 900-year
3rd ray racial cycles of the Bodhisattva and the Mahachohan.
therefore sees a centennial effort of the Lodge along the 1st
ray line of the Manu made to forward the ends of evolution, and
the effort for the 21st century will be upon a larger scale than
has been the case for a very long time, and will involve a number
of Great Ones. The force emanations from the Manu, or those of
the first Ray, are easily traced when the races are considered,
and this can be shown in the recognition of the periods of the
root-races and sub-races. What is oft overlooked is that each
of these rays of energy demonstrates constructively, through the
form-building agencies, and destructively through the ability
of the force to destroy prior to building.
Thus the cycles
can be viewed from two angles. When students learn to blend the
one hundred year cycles of the first type of energy with the equally
powerful impulses from the second Ray and the third, we shall
then have a cessation of many controversies. No great impulse
will come from the Lodge along the line of the first Ray of Will
or Power till the close of a century.
century: 100-year cycle of the Manu
Owing to planetary
initiation of the Lord of the World, to the immediate planetary
crisis and to the present cycle of initiation humanity is under,
first ray energy from Shamballa has been deliberately transmitted
to the "center which is called the race of men and has succeeded
in producing the present severe nature of the incidental stress,
tests and trials of the immediate global situation.
Thus has the new
first ray occult century of 100-years of the Manu ushered in;
thus has the stage been set for a better future. This is the intent
and the purpose of those who compose the Council Chamber of the
Lord. It now rests with humanity itself to take advantage of the
proffered 1st ray cycle of opportunity.
As the Master
M. is upon the first Ray, that of Will or Power, his work largely
concerns itself with the carrying out of the plans of the present
Manu. He acts as the Inspirer of the world statesmen. He manipulates
forces that will bring about the conditions desired for the furthering
of racial evolution.
The Master M.
has a large body of pupils under his instruction, and works in
connection with many organizations of an esoteric and occult kind,
as well as through the politicians and statesmen of the world.
At this time, the Master M. is the head of all esoteric schools
in the world. The 1st ray Ashram or group center through which
the Master Morya works is exceedingly busy. It is obvious to you
that as this is a first ray Ashram, the energy coming from the
Avatar of Synthesis will make its primary impact upon this Ashram,
which provides the line of least resistance. There, it is scientifically
stepped down or broken down, prior to distribution to the Ashrams
of the five Masters engaged in the work of preparation. The effect
of the Manu's dynamic first ray force, stepped down and working
through imperfect forms and personalities is always somewhat distorted,
curtailed and misapplied. D.K states that it is actually a beneficent
condition that as yet a first ray ego is so handicapped and limited
by their personalities the quality of their form nature that it
is unable to make adequate or intelligent use of its true inherent
potential for destructive force.
The work of
the Manu is to destroy forms, and this is essentially the work
of the first expression of divinity. But the work of the destroyer
is not the work of Evil and when we regard all destruction as
working on the black side, our error is great. The current necessary
cycle of destructive work of the Manu is as beneficent as that
of his building aspect, and it is but man's hatred of the death
of forms which makes humanity regard the work of the destruction
as Evil or "Black," as being against the "Good,"
or, as subversive of the Love of God.
problem before the Manu at this time is what will He do to bring
the nations, through the agency of the inner department of government
and political rule to a realization of their essential unity,
and so further that "peace on earth, good will to men"
of which we all dream. It is needless to point out that the destructive
wrecking process is motivated by the determination to demonstrate
the necessity of establishing a spirit of international dependence
and interrelation, so that the nations are forced to realize politically
that isolation, separation and the cultivation of a national egoism
must go, and that a national spirit colored by a sense of superiority,
by class hatreds and racial or religious antagonisms, constitutes
a barrier to the true development of humanity.
Thus the new
plans of the Manu for the 21st century based on mutual need, mutual
understanding, and mutual helpfulness, are rapidly coming into
being. On the physical plane, the initiates and the disciples
working in the Ashram of the Master Morya are primarily occupied
with the expression of synthesis in the world of politics and
of government, and with offsetting wrong approaches to synthesis,
seeking to preserve freedom in unity. It is a subjective synthesis
for which the 1st ray department works - a synthesis that will
express itself in an outer national cultural differentiation.
This cultural synthesis will define the many aspects of the essential,
basic racial unity which, working out under the stimulation of
the energy of synthesis, will bring about eventual peace and understanding
on earth - a peace which will preserve individual and national
cultures, but which will subordinate them to the good of the whole
Present 100-year period of the Manu:

The Will of
the Manu has legislated the new politics, i.e., politics which
are based upon the principle of bringing about right human relations.
The present Vulcan
ruled I/1 sub-period has inaugurated or, should I say unleashed
a first ray force of unprecedented magnitude on the physical plane.
Regardless, the Manu has granted the Power to the disciples of
the world and the initiates among men, so that they can direct
efficiently and wisely the coming process of rebuilding the new
world government. Humanity stands at the crossroads of an epic
struggle unleashed through the Shamballa 1st ray impact of 2000,
and then the opening of the fresh new life cycle of 49-years (6th
race) that began in 2001.
1st ray cycles have abnormally accelerated the present world situation
to an unprecedented rapidity of explosive progress. The release
of the dynamic will-to-action is now leading intelligent people
throughout every country of the world to inaugurate new activities
which are laying the foundation for the new, safe, secure, better
and happier world of the 21st century.
of the will-to-cooperate among the peoples of the world is steadily
on the rise and increases daily also. Behind all this and motivating
the activity is the Will of the Manu. His will embodies the ultimate
good of the national and world community and is deeply enshrined
in his consciousness and heart; he thinks in terms of the whole
and not in terms of the part. That is the one clear message that
the 1st ray ashram must endeavor to steadily impress upon the
racial consciousness. Humanity has been challenged to rightly
interpret and correctly understand the nature of the Will and
its unprecedented unleashing into the human center directly, without
supervening Hierarchical intervention.
Under the Law
of Manu, these new developments are necessary planetary developments
owing to the new alignment between the three major planetary Centers.
One of the first signs of the first ray impact and inflow is to
be found in the present instability of the mental mechanism and
the processes of the millions of men and women of goodwill to
correctly interpret present events transpiring.
As the will aspect
is contacted and its power used to evoke the emerging crisis of
love, an increasing number of workers with first ray energetic
have been drawn into the ranks of the New Group of World
Servers. This coming in has greatly strengthened the work but
has brought with it also great problems and inevitably difficulties.
The problem of the vast largely 2nd ray group focused on right
human relations and world goodwill is to integrate first ray workers
into the New Group of World Servers in such a manner that the
destructive aspect of the 1st ray resonance will not cause to
much difficulty, produce undue disruption or any obliteration
of the dominant love note which should be the outstanding characteristic
of all workers with the Plan at this time.
Keep in mind;
1st ray workers provide the substance with which the second ray
workers build and the other ray workers qualify and modify. They
inspire substance with the energy and purpose and with the life
necessary to render it responsive to the plan - the Plan of goodwill
the Masters are at present implementing and for which they seek
however, of the 1st ray Ashram in its present period of activity,
is so powerful in response to the new incoming tide of Shamballa
potency. Even so, down the scale, the "little" wills
of the intelligentsia, of those who serve the nation, religion,
world goodwill, or the public in some capacity or other, and those
above all who are working in some connection with the United Nations,
are also becoming further strengthened, stimulated and focused
on goodwill. The outpouring of the present cycle of 1st ray energy,
owing to developed strenuous wills of certain present world Leaders,
is having a potent effect. Its inflow has fostered a "fixed
intention" on the part of many to work ceaselessly for a
world racial government, true peace and understanding. These people
are aiding in the task of implementing goodwill.
The 1st ray
force, unavoidably, is nevertheless, strengthening the will of
the selfish, ambitious and obstinate rulers who are in positions
of national power and influence, and is producing, through them,
the increased global violence, chaos, fear and trouble - but,
at least, only temporarily. The salvation of the world and the
production of the needed security will be brought about this century
by the mass of men everywhere, in all lands; it will be the result
of an intensified educational process in understanding Will and
The World Disciple,
as yet, does not know how to handle wisely the energy of the will-to-power,
and it is largely this that has handicapped the manifestation
of the will-to-good. The present task is to fuse the two energies,
the will-to-power and goodwill, into a single potency, the will-to-good.
Behind all of these activities and plans stands the Manu, who
through his direction of energy through sound, is bringing about
the needed cycle of constructive changes in the racial world government,
the shifting of continents, cataclysms, and all aspects of the
corporate form of the planetary life.

will stimulate the men of goodwill everywhere so that hatred will
gradually be overcome and men will seek to live together cooperatively.
The 2nd ray
period will enforce the clear distinction between material living
and spiritual living and this will be clearly demonstrated. This
will be made possible by the cleavage of the ancient materialistic,
religious and racial thought-forms on mental levels resulting
in the reorientation of human thinking. As the clear fact is grasped,
it will have its first results upon emotional levels through the
focused expression of human goodwill; this is the lowest aspect
of the second Ray of Love-Wisdom, implemented and strengthened
by the second aspect of the first Ray of Will. The efforts of
world peace, as a resultant affect, will gain fresh hope and new
A number of the
great difficulties incidental to the violent opening first decade
in religious and racial matters will find themselves successfully
and peacefully resolved. The related fields of religion and education,
dominated by the magnetic group of 2nd ray souls will receive
and deliver a fresh cycle of positive motivation, uplift, new
hope and unified support.

The 4th decade
will foster the production of new forms of inspired art, culture,
drama, music and rchitecture. The cultural genius, which will
best epitomize the whole of the culture of the 21st century, will
assert itself. This decade will foster peace, culture and harmony
between peoples of the world.

humanity, will reach new height.

new impulses. New break-throughs in unlocking the power of the
atom care to be looked for. The scientific genius of the 21st
century will come to the forefront. The power of the "splitting
of the atom," will be turned to the production of those conditions
that will enable mankind to follow the good, the beautiful and
the true. In this decade under fresh 5th ray stimulation, men
will then be able to do begin to do so. Many scientists today
are not only visioning the non-destructive aspect of atomic energy
and are already engaged in harnessing - for the good of humanity
- some of its products and its radioactive properties.
The results of
science in connection with the atomic energy will bring about
a specific revelation of the nature of certain forces in relation
to light; this imminent scientific event will transform world

A great new wave
of incitement will impact the field of religion. The 6th ray period
coincides with the new life cycle commencement of 49-years that
opens in 2050. The return of the Christ and the mandate of the
new universal church will dominate the religious agenda of this
decade. The special enhancement of the energy of the "will-to-persist,"
an aspect of the 6th ray of devotion and idealism will lead to
a persistent belief in the ideals presented by the Hierarchy,
and the demonstration of immortality.

will further a building process which will be carried forward
under the direct inspiration of the Manu. The medium will be the
potency of the will-to-good of the new group of world servers
and the responsive goodwill of mankind. Under the 7th ray note
the new impulse will assume control along the line of planetary
finance, global economy, systemic business organization, international
justice, law and order. New laws and codes of international conduct
safeguarding the dignity of the human spirit and enshrining human
rights will be legislated and globally signed. The building of
the new world racial government will successfully be accomplished.
This is the period
of the major centennial Lodge effort of the 21st century along
the line and department of the Manu. The advancement of the Lodge
work will see the era of dispensation of new Occult teachings
along with many new disciples and aspirants taking initiation.
We can expect and look forward to the emergence of the most advanced
vanguard of Hierarchical masters and initiates the world has ever

Some of the Manu's
present hierarchical responsibilities include the Restoration
of the Mysteries, the initiation of those disciples who have stood
firm and unafraid during the enlargement of Their ashrams (owing
to the almost unforeseen development of the spiritual sense among
the world aspirants who would not normally have become disciples
during this incarnation), and the externalization of Their ashrams
preparatory to the reappearance of the Hierarchy upon earth.

of first ray power - something which even He, the Manu, in His
high place, is only now learning handle, as a pledged Disciple
