On this Date* of the cyclical time that leads, wraps, and in-forms us, it is the right time to sow the revolutionary, or better initiatory, value of the universal septenary order, the Canon and Rule of all harmonic Constructions and Unity, and basis of every organization and evolutionary fulfillment.
“Hippocrates said that number seven “By its occult virtues tended to the accomplishment of all things, to be the dispenser of life and fountain of all its changes.” The life of man he divided into seven ages (Shakespeare), for “As the moon changes her phases every seven days, this number influences all sublunary beings,” and even the Earth, as we know. With the child, it is the teeth that appear in the seventh month and he sheds them at seven years; at twice seven puberty begins, at three times seven all our mental and vital powers are developed, at four times seven he is in his full strength, at five times seven his passions are most developed, etc., etc.
Thus for the Earth. It is now in its middle age,** yet very little wiser for it. The Tetragrammaton, the four-lettered sacred name of the Deity, can be resolved on Earth only by becoming Septenary through the manifest triangle proceeding from the concealed Tetraktis.
Therefore, the number seven has to be adopted on this plane [4+3]. As written in the Kabala “The greater Holy Assembly” v. 1161:– “For assuredly there is no stability in those six, save (what they derive) from the seventh. For all things depend from the SEVENTH.” (HPB, THE SECRET DOCTRINE, Vol. 2, Page 312, note)
The Model for all harmonic Order, Group, or System among centers of consciousness, thus also at human and planetary levels, is indicated to be the septenary canon, the possible permutations or correlations between a triad of elements or fundamental aspects of the One.
“Life conquers Space through a system of Seven Centers”
They are the 7 spatial coordinates, the 7 Principles of the One Life, the Seven Rays or Builders-Logoi, the 7 Creative Hierarchies of the Solar Space, the 7 cosmic planes of Substance:“La Vita conquista lo Spazio tramite un sistema di sette centri”
“The seven rays are the sum total of the divine Consciousness, of the universal Mind; They might be regarded as seven intelligent entities through Whom the plan is working out. They embody divine purpose, express the qualities required for the materialising of that purpose, and They create the forms and are the forms through which the divine idea can be carried forward to completion…
…The seven ray Beings, unlike man, are fully conscious and entirely aware of the purpose and the Plan. They are “ever in deep meditation,” and have reached the point where, through Their advanced stage of development, They are “impelled toward fulfillment.” They are fully self-conscious and group-conscious; … These seven Rays, Breaths and Heavenly Men have the task of wrestling with matter in order to subjugate it to divine purpose, and the goal—as far as one can sense it—is to subject the material forms to the play of the life aspect, thus producing those qualities which will carry the will of God to completion.
They are therefore the sum total of all the souls within the solar system, and Their activity produces all forms; according to the nature of the form so will be the grade of consciousness. Through the seven rays, the life or spirit aspect flows, cycling through every kingdom in nature and producing thus all states of consciousness in all fields of awareness.
…All the Lords of the rays create a body of expression, and thus the seven planets have come into being. These are their major expressions … The energies of these seven Lives however are not confined to their planetary expressions, but sweep around the confines of the solar system just as the life impulses of a human being—his vital forces, his desire impulses, and his mental energies—sweep throughout his body, bringing the various organs into activity and enabling him to carry out his intent, to live his life, and to fulfill the objective for which he created his body of manifestation.
Each of the seven kingdoms in nature reacts to the energy of some particular ray Life. Each of the seven planes similarly reacts; each septenate in nature vibrates to one or another of the initial septenates, for the seven rays establish that process which assigns the limits of influence of all forms. They are that which determines all things … the necessity of Law. Law is the will of the seven Deities, making its impression upon substance in order to produce a specific intent through the method of the evolutionary process.”
The Seven Rays are the Divine Builders of the new Solar Human Order, imitating that Hierarchy and Order that drives us, despite and thanks to us, from inner levels.
“The seven Ashrams [of the planetary Hierarchy] each express the quality of their ray, one of the seven ray types … The great Ashram is formed of seven major Ashrams and forty-two secondary Ashrams which are gradually forming…
…it is the service of the Plan which binds the seven Ashrams, with their subsidiary Ashrams, coherently into the one great Ashram.
The Plan is the expression of the Purpose or the Will of God.”
The new human Order must learn to express the Seven Rays consciously, orderly, in planetary Group consciousness, first through small groups, systems or prototypes, then through more and more comprehensive units.
It will take all the Aquarius Age, or more or less, it does not matter, it takes to us – all those pioneering hearts of the restoration of the universal Order on Earth – to assert the septenary Plan of Love and Light.***
In due course, a One Humanity, united and hierarchical, will consciously lead our wonderful Blue Planet, liberating with order and ordering through liberty.
Only then will vision and reality be one and the same thing.
