414. Esoteric Psychology - Volume I - 57. Some Tabulations on the Rays - THE VEGETABLE KINGDOM - A. BAILEY

Some Tabulations on the Rays

THE VEGETABLE KINGDOM


Influences
The second Ray of Love-Wisdom, working out in a vastly increased sensibility.

The fourth Ray of Harmony and Beauty, working out in the general harmonisation of this kingdom throughout the entire planet.

The sixth Ray of Devotion or (as it has been expressed symbolically in The Ancient Wisdom)the "urge to consecrate the life to the Sun, the giver of that life," or again, the "urge to turn the eye of the heart to the heart of the sun:




Results
These work out in the second kingdom as magnetism, perfume, colour and growth towards the light.  These words I commend to you for your earnest study, for it is in this kingdom that one first sees clearly the glory which lies ahead of humanity.

a. Magnetic radiation.  The blending of the mineral and vegetable goals.

b. The perfume of perfection.

c. The glory of the human aura.  The radiant augoeides.

d. Aspiration which leads to final inspiration.


Process
Conformation, or the power to "conform" to the pattern set in the heavens, and to produce below that which is found above.  This is done in this kingdom with greater pliability than in the mineral kingdom, where the process of condensation goes blindly forward.


Secret
Transformation, those hidden alchemical processes which enable the vegetable growths in this kingdom to draw their sustenance from the sun and soil and "transform" it into form and colour.


Purpose
Magnetism. That inner source of beauty, loveliness, and attractive power which lures to it the higher forms to consume it for food, and the thinking entities to draw from it inspiration, comfort and satisfaction of a mental kind.
Divisions
Trees and shrubs. The flowering plants.

The grasses and lesser green things which do not come under the other two categories.  A group of vegetable growths which are found under the general heading of "sea growths".
Objective Agency
Water.
Subjective Agency
Touch.
Quality
Rajas or activity.

411. Esoteric Psychology - Volume I - 54. Some Tabulations on the Rays - THE RAYS OF ASPECT AND OF ATTRIBUTE - A. BAILEY

Some Tabulations on the Rays

THE RAYS OF ASPECT AND OF ATTRIBUTE

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.

Some Tabulations on the Rays

THE RAYS AND THE PLANETS

Each of the seven sacred planets (of which our Earth is not one) is an expression of one of the seven ray influences.  The student however must remember three things:
1. That every planet is the incarnation of a Life, or an Entity or Being.
2. That every planet, like a human being, is the expression of two ray forces,—the personality and the egoic.
3. That two rays are therefore in esoteric conflict in each planet.
