Greetings fellow seekers...

Here is a statement of Truths about the SELF, taken from Builders of the Adytum, a western mystery school founded by Dr. Paul Foster Case and dedicated to spreading the teachings of Sacred Tarot and Holy Qabalah.

Again, this is a copyrighted piece of material, based on the Master Pattern, or Tree of Life, as taught by B.O.T.A. and called The Pattern on the Trestleboard.

This is Truth about the Self:

0) All the Power that ever was or will be is here now.

1) I am a center of expression for the Primal-Will-to-Good which eternally creates and sustains the universe.

2) Through me its Unfailing Wisdom takes form in thought and word.

3) Filled with Understanding of its perfect law, I am guided, moment by moment, along the Path of Liberation.

4) From the exhaustless riches of its Limitless Substance, I draw all things needful, both spiritual and material.

5) I recognize the manifestation of the undeviating Justice in all the circumstances of my life.

6) In all things, great and small, I see the Beauty of the divine expression.

7) Living from that Will, supported by its unfailing Wisdom and Understanding, mine is the Victorious Life.

8) I look forward with confidence to the perfect realization of the Eternal Splendor of the Limitless Light.

9) In thought and word and deed, I rest my life, from day to day, upon the sure Foundation of Eternal Being.

10) The Kingdom of Spirit is embodied in my flesh.

Each of the capitalized words in the above statements is related to a particular Sephiroth on the Qabalistic Tree of Life diagram.

It can be used as a meditation, or a daily set of affirmations. And I think it provides a lot of good metaphysical food for thought and discussion.

What do you all think?

Blessings in L.V.X. eternal...

Greetings Star...

Ahh, but isn't it a wonderful starting point?

As Linda says in Star Signs... if we "believe a lie" we can "claim a miracle".

The Pattern is a set of meditations or affirmations, that if used rightly, with thought, focus and meditation, will unlock the key to many secrets of life... and immortality.

So, yes, at the beginning it may be easier said than done, but in the long term... it may be the Truth that sets us Free!

Blessings...

5) I recognize the manifestation of the undeviating Justice in all the circumstances of my life.

6) In all things, great and small, I see the Beauty of the divine expression

These two, in my own wording, are the cornerstone of my life in the eternal now. Without that knowing, life would be a frightening experience for me.
Thank you for posting these Truths.

Hi Annie...

Can you expand on that thought.. I'm not well versed in the rays.

Hope all is well... and I haven't forgotten your Lexigram, just a bit short on letters


Best Wishes...

And the website also gives alot of info on the B.O.T.A. coursework.

From Share International......

There are three primary rays, or rays of aspect, and four secondary rays of attribute. They have many names describing their many qualities and actions but are usually enumerated as follows:

Rays of Aspect
1st ray of Power, Will or Purpose
2nd ray of Love-Wisdom 3rd ray of Active, Creative Intelligence

Rays of Attribute
4th ray of Harmony through Conflict, or Beauty, or Art
5th ray of Concrete Science or Knowledge
6th ray of Abstract Idealism or Devotion
7th ray of Ceremonial Order or Magic or Ritual or Organization

Cyclically, according to the plan of the Logos, the rays come into manifestation, producing through their influence the succession of civilizations and cultures which mark and measure the evolution of the races.

The three major planetary centres, Shamballa, Hierarchy and Humanity, are, respectively, the exponents of the three major rays of aspect: Will, Love-Wisdom and Active Intelligence.

Every human being finds himself on one or other of these seven energies, and all of us are governed basically by five ray forces:

the ray of the soul, which remains the same for countless aeons;
the personality ray, which varies from life to life until all the qualities are developed;
the ray governing the mental body;
that governing the astral-emotional equipment
and the ray of the physical body, including the brain.
These all vary cyclically.

Each ray works primarily through one centre (or chakra), and together they determine the physical structure and appearance, the astral-emotional nature, and the quality of the mental unit. They predispose us to certain attitudes of mind and certain strengths and weaknesses (the virtues and vices of the rays). They give us our particular personality colour and general tone on the physical plane. For the greater part of our evolutionary experience on this earth the rays of the personality govern our expression, but when we are two-thirds of the way along the path, the soul ray begins to dominate and to be expressed.

The 7 Rays also vibrate to the 7 esoteric planets, the 7 main Ascended Masters,the 7 chakras. The also have their own colors.
The 7 consciousness of God.

Annie...

Thanks for that explanation.

For some reason I've never been able to wrap my mind around the Rays. People have tried to write about their astrological connection under the guise of Esoteric Astrology, and I still can't seem to make any sense of it.

I'm sure this has to do with some block in my own mind, but with my other studies and of course my work in the mundane world, I think any study of the Rays will have to wait until I get the Qabalah figured out!

Additionally, God has seen fit to send me two eager young students who are keeping me on my esoteric toes so to speak! So I think my exploration of the Rays will be some time off in the "non existent" future!

Blessings in L.V.X. eternal...
