Esoteric Psychology (Science of the Soul)
From the Tibetan Master Djwhal Khul:
Psychology is defined in Webster’s Dictionary as “the science of mind”, at one time considered a branch of metaphysics. Today we are more inclined to include all the conditioning subjective factors as psychological in nature–mental and emotional impulses and soul contact, to whatever degree it exists. These subjective influences constitute the whole psychological background to a man’s attitudes and behaviour, and create the faculty of spiritual response.
The “psyche” is, after all, the human soul, the centre of consciousness. Esoteric psychology begins with a consideration of the human being as a soul, manifesting in the form of a personality, consisting of mental, emotional and etheric/physical substance, and more or less in contact and control, depending on the stage of evolution in the personality consciousness.
The seven differentiated streams of ray energy play a significant role in this evolutionary process. A blend of five energies in a human being determine his goals, his problems, his available qualities and energy resources, and the correct method by which–according to his dominant ray influence–he may unfold his consciousness and make spiritual progress.
In this video Esoteric Psychology many of these distinctive ray qualities and methods are given as quotations, or interpretations, of “The Old Commentary” put into poetic and symbolic words. The seven rays are shown as the Seven Creative Builders, each one imbued with purpose and power, functioning together as a synthesis in occult obedience to the purposes of our Solar Logos.
Such a detailed and comprehensive study of the ray energies influencing our planetary life and all kingdoms in nature is of inestimable value to the aspirant consciously preparing himself to become of planetary service as he learns to serve and to unite with his fellowmen.
