Esoteric Psychology II
by Alice A. Bailey
Five volumes have been written under the overall title of A Treatise on the Seven Rays, based on the fact, the nature, the quality and the interrelationship of the seven streams of energy pervading our solar system, our planet and all that lives and moves within its orbit. These two volumes go extensively into the psychological make-up of a human being as the life, quality and appearance of an incarnating, evolving spiritual entity. They also relate the circumstance of a human psychology to world conditions and to future possibilities.
This second volume of Esoteric Psychology deals exhaustively with the ray qualities controlling the life, consciousness and appearance of a human being on the physical plane.
The first part of the book dealing with the Egoic Ray, includes sections on (1) The growth of soul influence; (2) The seven laws of soul or group life; (2) The five groups of souls, and (4) Rules for inducing soul control.
The second part of the book deals with (1) The appropriation of the bodies; (2) The coordination of the personality; (3) Some problems of psychology, and (4) Diseases and problems of disciples and mystics.
The final part of this volume on Humanity Today anchors these pervasive thoughts and energies within the world arena. The world situation is viewed from the esoteric and Hierarchical angle and in relation to the requirements of the dawning new age of Aquarius. A synthesis of thought and a unity of purpose must be established in the world in order to create conditions in which peace can prosper and the Christ can reappear.
