Esoteric Psychology II - Chapter I - The Egoic Ray - The Seven Laws of Soul or Group Life
8. Some groups of energy communicators and transmitters will carry illumination between groups of thinkers. They are illuminators of group thoughts. They transmit energy from one thought center to another. They transmit, above everything else, the energy of ideas. That is their major function. The world of ideas is a world of dynamic force centers. This should not be forgotten. These ideas have to be contacted and [192] noted. Their energy has to be assimilated and transmitted and this is the function of those force centers which will express themselves along these lines of activity.

9. Groups working in another category will have for their specific work the stimulating of the minds of men so that alignment can take place. They act primarily as channels of communication between the soul of man and the soul in any form. They will be the great psychometrical workers, for a psychometrist is one whose soul is sensitive to the soul in other forms of life, - human and non-human. They evoke the soul of the past, primarily, linking it with the present, and finding it also indicative of the future.

10. Members of other groups will be communicators between the third aspect of Deity as it expresses itself through the creative process and the world of human thought. They will link or blend life and form creatively. Today, unknowingly and without any true understanding, they bring about a concretization of the energy of desire, which, in its turn, brings about the concretization of money. This, consequently, necessitates the materialization of things. They have a most difficult task and that is why it is only during the past one hundred and fifty years that the science of world finance has made its appearance. They will deal with the divine aspect of money. They will regard money as the means whereby divine purpose can be carried forward. They will handle money as the agency through which the building forces of the universe can carry forward the work needed; and (herein lies the clue) those building forces will be increasingly occupied with the building of the subjective Temple of the Lord rather than with the materializing of that which meets man's desire. This distinction merits consideration.

III. They are an externalization of an inner existing condition. [193] It must be realized that these Groups are not a cause but an effect. That they may themselves have an initiatory effect as they work upon the physical plane is no doubt true, but they themselves are the product of inner activity and of subjective aggregations of force which must perforce become objective. The work of the group members is to keep, as a group, in close rapport with the inner groups, which form nevertheless, one large, active group. This central group force will then pour through the groups in so far as the group members, as a group

  1. Keep en rapport with the inner sources of power;
  2. Never lose sight of the group objective, whatever that objective may be;
  3. Cultivate a dual capacity to apply the laws of the soul to the individual life, and the laws of the group to the group life;
  4. Use all forces which may flow into the group in service, and learn, therefore, to register that force and use it correctly.

Would the following sequence of statements convey anything to our minds in this connection? It is a statement of fact and is not in the least symbolic in its terminology, except in so far as all words are inadequate symbols of inner truths.

  1. Each group has its inner counterpart.
  2. This inner counterpart is a complete whole. The outer result is only partial.
  3. These inner groups, forming one group, are each of them expressive of, or governed by, certain laws, embodying the controlling factors in group work. A law is only an expression or manifestation of force, applied under the power of thought by a thinker or group of thinkers. [194]
  4. These inner groups, embodying differing types of force, and working synthetically to express certain laws, are an effort to bring in new and different conditions, and hence produce a new civilization. This is the New Age that the Aquarian Age will see consummated.
  5. The outer groups are a tentative and experimental effort to see how far humanity is ready for such an endeavor.

IV. They are also an experiment which has for its objective the manifestation of certain types of energy which will produce cohesion, or an at-one-ment, upon earth. The present distraught condition in the world, the international impasse, the religious dissatisfaction, the economic and social upheaval of the past few decades, are all the result of energies that are so potent - owing to their immense momentum - that they can only be brought into rhythmic activity by the imposition of stronger and more definitely directed energies. When the groups are functioning adequately and have achieved, not only an internal group unity, but also harmony between the groups themselves, then some peculiar and esoteric work can be done.

Such are some of the plans which the Hierarchy are attempting to carry forward and in which all true disciples and aspirants can have a part. They are brought to our attention in order to evoke our lasting cooperation.
