Techniques of Integration Webinar Commentary 18 covers the ACLRI Tabulation Interpretation, and is truncated at about 1 hour long. This program is an analysis and interpretation of a Tabulation consisting of all five phases of the ACLRI Process for each of the seven rays. ACLRI stands for Alignment, Crisis, Light, Revelation and Integration. One learns more about this process by comparing the way it works for each of the seven soul ray types in the integration process.

Techniques of Integration Webinar Commentary 17 covers pages 376-378, and is one hour and 34 minutes long. Topics include: 1): working with the seventh ray requires handling with care; one is playing with fire; 2): for the seventh ray type to work with this formula he must stand in the East within the protection of the pentagram; 3): the seventh ray type is to see himself as a “relating agent” and builder of the new forms of the new civilization; 4): this standing and this recognition of himself as a relating agent will create an alignment; 5): alignment brings a tremendous inflow of power and a subsequent crisis; 6): if the man is not purified, the lower nature will be abnormally stimulated and the man will find himself at war with it; 7): for a time he can be swung away from his center and may find himself involved in lower magic; 8): his true task is to stand within the mystical pentagram and to refrain from involvement in personality magic; 9): in this pentagram, attuning with the light of the soul, he suffers in darkness until the light breaks in; 10): the light will reveal his darkness but also will intensify to reveal the nature of the Divine Plan, and that part of the Plan with which he must cooperate; 11): the word ORIENTATION can be used to indicate the correct attitude off waiting at the center of the pentagram until the Light of the East breaks forth; 12): his growing access to the light brings about the stage of REVELATION—the Revelation of the Divine Plan which is so important to the seventh ray type; 13): the seventh ray disciple finds those with whom he can cooperate, helping to bring their work to fruition; 14): he works cooperatively in all the ray fields; 15): as he works intelligently with the Divine Plan he finds himself increasingly integrated into the process of that Plana and integrated, as well, within himself; 16): before he can work with full success outwardly, he must bring about the expression of the Divine Plan within himself; 17): the open pentagram is a place of danger; the disciple is disordered and cannot control the lower forces which overcome him; 18): the closed pentagram is a place of spiritual security and from his position within it the disciple can perform the ritual of the soul and of the Master; 19): if the disciple enters through the open pentagram he dies; 20): if he opens through the closed pentagram he lives and transmutes that pentagram into a “ring of fire”; 21): he is fully integrated and becomes the successful white magician; 22): there also follows a review of the integration process for the seventh ray soul; 23): there follows a review of the nature, consciousness and activity of those who have reached the stage of INGETRATION on each of the seven rays; 24): there is also a review of what the ACLRI Process brings, in general, to the disciple.

Techniques of Integration Webinar Commentary 16 covers pages 375-376, and is one hour and 15 minutes long. An analysis and interpretation of the R7 Integration Formula.

Ray Seven.

"'I seek to bring the two together. The plan is in my hands. How shall I work? Where lay the emphasis? In the far distance stands the One Who Is. Here at my hand is form, activity, substance, and desire. Can I relate these and fashion thus a form for God? Where shall I send my thought, my power the word that I can speak?

'I, at the centre, stand, the worker in the field of magic. I know some rules, some magical controls, some Words of Power, some forces which I can direct. What shall I do? Danger there is. The task that I have undertaken is not easy of accomplishment, yet I love power. I love to see the forms emerge, created by my mind, and do their work, fulfill the plan and disappear. I can create. The rituals of the Temple of the Lord are known to me. How shall I work?

'Love not the work. Let love of God's eternal Plan control your life, your mind, your hand, your eye. Work towards the unity of plan and purpose which must find its lasting place on earth. Work with the Plan; focus upon your share in that great work.'

The Word goes forth from soul to form: 'Stand in the centre of the pentagram, drawn upon that high place in the East within the light which ever shines. From that illumined centre work. Leave not the pentagram. Stand steady in the midst. Then draw a line from that which is without to that which is within and see the Plan take form.'"

Techniques of Integration Webinar Commentary 15 covers pages 372-375, and is two hours and ten minutes long. Topics include: 1): the sixth ray type must learn to dissociate himself from his desired vision; 2): he tends to force his fellowmen to follow the vision which he sees; 3): discussion of the distinction between detachment and dissociation; 4): the sixth ray type needs wide, inclusive, non-critical love; 5): the close association between the sixth ray and the third ray—this similarity is mathematical and swings into expression at a fairly advanced level of evolution; 6): the problem of the sixth ray aspirant is to divorce himself from the thraldom of form; 7): just as does the third ray aspirant, the sixth ray aspirant has to learn to stand quietly at the center; 8): until he is centered he lacks breadth of vision and a sense of proportion; 9): he must learn to align himself with all useful and positive visions which lead to the realization of worthy ideal states; then and only then can he be trusted to work with the Divine Plan; 10): peaceful standing still evokes alignment and the alignment evokes a crisis; 11): his visions fade but at first there is nothing to take their place; his world is darkened and he lacks incentive; 12): there must come a total readjustment of the Self to the self; 13): he must stand at the center, fixing his eyes upon the soul, until the light breaks forth; 14): reference to the crucifixion of the Master Jesus as an example of this experience, though on a much higher turn of the spiral; 15): the sixth ray aspirant must face himself and his futility and surrender to the life at the center; then the light will break in revealing that which he has to know; 16): discussion of the various phases of the light breaking in; 17): as the light breaks in, it leads to revelation; the value of all positive paths is revealed and his narrowness turns to inclusiveness; 18): with the revelation of inclusiveness and loving-understanding, the necessary integration can take place; 19): the power of the sixth ray during the last two millennia and its present momentum make it difficult for the sixth ray aspirant to achieve the necessary freedom through dissociation; 20): he must divorce himself from personality devotions and from the resultant fanaticism; he must display common sense instead of rushing forward and overlooking the immediate environment; 21): he needs to develop soul devotion and to dissociate himself from the idealism of himself and others; 22): review of the ACLRI Process for the sixth ray aspirant; 23): ACLRI is not a strictly linear process; it has a number of overlapping phases and feedback loops; 24): dissatisfaction produces reorientation.

Techniques of Integration Webinar Commentary 14 covers pages 371-372, and is one hour and 20 minutes long. An analysis and interpretation of the R6 Integration Formula.

Ray Six.

"'I see a vision. It satisfies desire; it feeds and stimulates its growth. I lay my life upon the altar of desire—the seen, the sensed, that which appeals to me, the satisfaction of my need—a need for that which is material, for that which feeds emotion, that satisfies the mind, that answers my demand for truth, for service, and my vision of the goal. It is the vision which I see, the dream I dream, the truth I hold, the active form which meets my need, that which I grasp and understand. My truth, my peace, my satisfied desire, my dream, my vision of reality, my limited ideal, my finite thought of God;—for these I struggle, fight and die.'

Love of the truth must always be. Desire and aspiration, reaching out for that which is material or soaring upward towards the vision of reality must ever find their satisfaction. For this men work, driving themselves and irking others. They love the truth as they interpret it; they love the vision and the dream, forgetting that the truth is limited by mind—narrow and set, one-pointed, not inclusive; forgetting that the vision touches but the outer fringe of mystery, and veils and hides reality.

The word goes out from soul to form: 'Run not so straight. The path that you are on leads to the outer circle of the life of God; the line goes forward to the outer rim. Stand at the centre. Look on every side. Die not for outer forms. Forget not God, Who dwells behind the vision. Love more your fellow men.'"

Techniques of Integration Webinar Commentary 13 covers pages 369-371, and is one hour and two minutes long. Topics include: 1): the fifth ray formula is very powerful at this time; 2): it will only be used wisely if, though the creative imagination there is created a balanced distribution of energy between the soul, mind and the psychic/physical nature; 3): too much of the soul energy poured into the physical nature will shatter it; 4): too much soul energy poured into the astral nature will intensify glamor and perhaps produce fanaticism; 5): the energy of the soul must be divided into three parts, with the soul retaining one third and the other two third divided among the mind and the lower psychic man—physical and astral; 6): interestingly the Monad, too, divides its energy into three parts retaining, apparently, one third for itself, given a third to the soul nature and another third to enter the lower worlds as the expression of the soul in incarnated life; 7): the soul and the human being in the three lower worlds are both expressions of the one Monad; 8): using the fifth ray formula produces for the fifth ray type, alignment; 9): alignment produces crisis; 10): crisis expresses itself through two subsidiary crises; 11): the first of these is the crisis of aridity ending the joy-life and the life of desire; 12): the second is a crisis of choice necessitating detachment from the life of form; 13): with the approach to the soul of the detached unit of consciousness, the light increases ending in a revelation of the true and accurate relationship between the soul and form; 14): by means of this revelation and acting according to its implications, the integration between soul and form is achieved; 15): the mind quality of the fifth ray type is critical, analytical, separative and over-discriminating; 16): the mind must be used by the advancing fifth ray type in a higher way as the “common sense” revealing both the One and the form; 17): every crisis carries with it a degree of light, using which to end the crisis rightly, the light emanating from the soul can be intensified; 18): the Word of Power for the fifth ray Technique of Integration is DETACHMENT—meaning the detachment of thought from form in order to apprehend the true nature of the soul or the One.

Techniques of Integration Webinar Commentary 12 covers pages 368-369, and is one hour and 20 minutes long. An analysis and interpretation of the R5 Integration Formula.

Ray Five.

"'Towards me I draw the garment of my God. I see and know His form. I take that garment, piece by piece. I know its shape and colour, its form and type, its parts component and its purposes and use. I stand amazed, I see naught else. I penetrate the mysteries of form, but not the Mystery. I see the garment of my God. I see naught else.'

Love of the form is good but only as the form is known for what it is—the veiling vase of life. Love of the form must never hide the Life which has its place behind, the One who brought the form into the light of day, and preserves it for His use,—The One Who lives, and loves and serves the form, the One Who Is.

The Word goes forth from soul to form: 'Behind that form, I am. Know Me. Cherish and know and understand the nature of the veils of life, but know as well the One Who lives. Know Me. Let not the forms of nature, their processes and powers prevent thy searching for the Mystery which brought the mysteries to thee. Know well the form, but leave it joyously and search for Me.

'Detach thy thought from form and find Me waiting underneath the veils, the many-sided shapes, the glamours and the thoughtforms which hide my real Self. Be not deceived. Find Me. Know Me. Then use the forms which then will neither veil nor hide the Self, but will permit the nature of that Self to penetrate the veils of life, revealing all the radiance of God, His power and magnetism; revealing all there is of form, of life, of beauty and usefulness. The mind reveals the One. The mind can blend and fuse the form and life. Thou art the One. Thou art the form. Thou art the mind. Know this.'"

Techniques of Integration Webinar Commentary 11 covers pages 363-368, and is about two hours and ten minutes long. Topics include: 1): relation of the fourth ray to the Fourth Creative Hierarchy; 2): discussion of the Fourth Creative Hierarchy and the human kingdom in terms of function, relation and service; 3): when the consummation of the purpose of the human kingdom occurs the majority of egos within human will have a fourth ray personality; 4): the incentive towards alignment will be produced by the realization of humanity’s promising buddhic destiny; 5): the destined alignment is not mystical nor occult but a type of group alignment leading to the sense of group fusion within a greater whole; 6): this experience is a kind of reflection of Nirvanic consciousness; 7): the disciple must become aware of the fourth ray type of alignment before a crisis is produced; 8): states of consciousness must be brought down into the physical brain for recognition; 9): the crises discussed in this section of the book are brought about by the clashing of the higher forces of the personality with the energies of the soul; 10): it requirements a personality of a very high order to produce the type of crisis referenced in the ACLRI Process; 11): when integrated personality force is brought into contact with soul energy the result is ever a crisis; 12): the fourth ray crisis is produced in four stages: a., a sense of isolation; b., a sense of despairing futility; c., a determination to stand; d., a sudden recognition of the Inner Warrior and the emergence of the Will-to-Victory; 13): discussion of seven types of revelation—of the Inner Ruler, Sage, Weaver, Warrior, Knower, Idealist, Magician; 14): the light reveals the Inner Warrior; 15): it is also revealed that the Inner Warrior and the outer warrior or soldier are one; 16): in this discussion of the Ray 4 Formula, the “breaking forth of the light of victory” seems more a result of the achievement of the phase of Integration; 17): it must be Light that reveals the Inner Warrior; 18): increasing identification with the Inner Warrior brings revelation of consummatory destinies for the individual, the group and for humanity; 19): the “victory” discussed seems the achievement of the final Integration; 20): the Revelation is also of the “Brahma of the Lord” which is also a revelation of the beauty and glory of the Plan; 21): discussion of three types of Revelation: to the: to the individual, to the group and, later, to humanity as a whole; 22): spiritual happenings and unfoldments in the life of the individual, the group and humanity as a whole produce, eventually, Integration; then indeed, the victory is achieved.23): the Revelation accorded to the group has much to do with the function of the NGWS; 24): the Word of Power for the fourth ray soul is Steadfastness—added to Inclusion, Centralization and Stillness; 25): these Words should only be used by those who are increasingly infused by the soul and not functioning as personalities alone; only pledged disciples should use these Words; 26): review of the phases of the ACLRI Process as DK discusses them in relation to the fourth ray soul.

Techniques of Integration Webinar Commentary 10 covers pages 363, and is about one hour and 20 minutes long.

An analysis and interpretation of the R4 Integration Formula.

"'Midway I stand between the forces which oppose each other. Longing am I for harmony and peace, and for the beauty which results from unity. I see the two. I see naught else but forces ranged opposing, and I, the one, who stands within the circle at the centre. Peace I demand. My mind is bent upon it. Oneness with all I seek, yet form divides. War upon every side I find, and separation. Alone I stand and am. I know too much.'

The love of unity must dominate, and love of peace and harmony. Yet not that love, based on a longing for relief, for peace to self, for unity because it carries with it that which is pleasantness.

The word goes forth from soul to form. 'Both sides are one. There is no war, no difference and no isolation. The warring forces seem to war from the point at which you stand. Move on a pace. See truly with the opened eye of inner vision and you will find, not two but one; not war but peace; not isolation but a heart which rests upon the centre. Thus shall the beauty of the Lord shine forth. The hour is now.'"

Techniques of Integration Webinar Commentary 9 covers page 360, and is about two hours long. Topics include: 1): continued analysis and interpretation of the Technique of Integration for the R3 soul; 2): the “enforced quiet” applied to the R3 soul brings about the Stage of Alignment; 3): the third ray type has to bring about not the quiet of meditation as in the case of the first ray but the “quiet of living”; 4): the third ray type is guilty of much waste of energy; 5): he often fails to achieve his goal because of his constant running hither and thither; 6): he is occupied with the distant objective and overlooks the immediate steps; 7): futility is the result of his unplanned, wasted motion; 8): to offset this tendency he must learn to stand quiet, awaiting opportunities which present themselves to him and not rushing forth to make opportunities for himself; 9): through a willingness to achieved “divine idleness” he achieves alignment; 10): this alignment produces a crisis with two principle effects: deep distress because of his realization of the futility of his life and the trouble he has caused others; determination to stand and study the spider who is not entangled in his own web; 11): through the crisis the light of understanding is evoked; he sees the nature of his entanglement and how to begin extricating himself; 12): in the disentanglement phase he must release himself from his own ideas; 13): he is slow to start but finishes the task with eventual rapidity; 14): the third ray type is slowest to learn; the second ray type learns faster; the first ray type learns still faster; 15): the second and third ray type have to achieve different types of quietude: for the second ray type it is the quiet at the center of the storm; for the third ray type is the quiet of the millpond; 16): Revelation comes to the third ray type as he works in the growing light; 17): integration follows, especially as he achieves the necessary quietude; 18): three words embody the simplest phases of the first three Techniques of Integration; 19): it is INCLUSION for the first ray type; it is CENTRALIZATION for the second ray type; it is STILLNESS for the third ray type; 20): the type of alignment taught in the meditation process is different from the alignment which features in these formulas; 21): the alignment formulas is a starting point; 22): a continuity of consciousness within the aligned forms is required of the properly aligned disciple who is using these formulas; 23): a review of the formula, word and ACLRI process for those upon the first three rays, the Rays of Aspect;

Techniques of Integration Webinar Commentary 7 covers pages 355-360, and is about two hours long. Topics include: 1): all rays are subrays of the second Ray of Love-Wisdom; 2): the point at the center has three qualities: life or activity in form, love and the power of abstraction; 3): attraction and abstraction emerge in the second ray formula; 4): the aspirant and the second ray aspirant especially arrives at the familiar condition of finding no satisfaction in familiar things; 5): he passes through a stage of futility and emptiness; 6): Raja Yoga helps the aspirant use the formulas; it brings intense inner focusing and alert mental detachment; 7): for the second ray type meditation produces alignment; 8): the crisis of evocation depends upon alignment of the man on the periphery with the One at the Center; 9): under the impress of the soul the man on the periphery of the soul’s consciousness occultly detaches himself from the periphery and sweeps towards the center; 10): this crisis of detachment lasts far longer than the first ray crisis; 11): along the line from the man to the center, the light breaks in; 12): the light at first reveals a vision of his defects; 13): the light then reveals a vision of the next step ahead; 14): unfortunately, this second ray crisis is often seen as a psychological disease to be cured; 15): the Stage of Light in the ACLRI Process has six stages: a., the vision of defects; b., the vision of the next step ahead; c., the vision of fellow travellers; d., the vision of the Guardian Angel; e., a fleeting vision of the "Angel of the Presence"; f., a vision of the Master of his ray group; 16): at first he may see a thoughtform of the Master and only later the real Master; 17): Revelation at last leads to integration; 18): in the stage of integration there is a fusion of the soul and personality rays; 19): the personality ray is always a subray of the personality ray; 20): an example is given of a ray chart: 32---567; 21): understanding of the ray chart (as exemplified in the one given) will lead to solving various problems: of alignment; of the line of least resistance; of the processes of substitution; of transmutation; of the fields of service, avocation and vocation; 22): the lack of balance in any ray chart should be studied so a man knows what to do; 23): most esoteric schools contain those whose soul ray is the first or second; 24): in the later stages of evolution the mental ray is either the first or the second; 25): transition to the first or second ray mind occurs via the third ray mind; 26): Masters M. and K.H. work together as a unit demonstrating how the first and second rays should work together; 28): ray one penetrates the darkness which releases light; 29): ray two gathers the light which is released; 30): summary of the states of Alignment, Crisis, Light, Revelation, and Integration for the second ray soul;

Techniques of Integration Webinar Commentary 6 covers page 355, and is about one hour and 15 minutes long. This program analyses and interprets the following stanza describing the Second Ray Technique of Integration.

Ray Two

"'Again I stand; a point within a circle and yet myself.'

The love of love must dominate, not love of being loved. The power to draw unto oneself must dominate, but into the worlds of form that power must some day fail to penetrate. This is the first step towards a deeper search.

The word goes forth from soul to form: 'Release thyself from all that stands around, for it has naught for thee, so look to me. I am the One who builds, sustains and draws thee on and up. Look unto me with eyes of love, and seek the path which leads from the outer circle to the point.

I, at the point, sustain. I, at the point, attract. I, at the point, direct and choose and dominate. I, at the point, love all, drawing them to the centre and moving forward with the travelling points towards that great Centre where the One Point stands. What mean you by that Word?" (EP II 355)

Topics include: 1): the factor of “control” in the life of the first ray soul; 2): the first ray soul as “God’s destroying Angel”; 3): the initial ruthlessness of personalities which have been integrated under the impress of the first ray soul; 4): these ruthless qualities are expressed in all walks of life; 5): an integrated personality functions as a whole; 6): a crisis emerges based upon dissatisfaction and upon the reaction of the environment to his ruthlessness; 7): realizing what he has done, the man alone seeks to enter into relationship; 8): he is experiencing a “crisis of evocation” which results in a change of direction, method and attitude; 9): a marvelous section of the Old Commentary describes his reorientation; 10): he develops greater inclusiveness, prompted by his suffering; 11): the previously hardened, insensitive man waits at the center of his heart and attempts to feel; 12): standing still and attempting to be sensitive he experiences the “light that shocks”, revealing to him all that he has destroyed and the pain he has caused; 13): he is then inwardly prompted to rebuild to compensate for what he has destroyed;14): his rebuilding lifts all who have suffered under his destructive tendencies to a new and higher level; 15): discussion of four incarnations once he has reached the stage of realizing the need for rebuilding; 16): the usual personality rays are given for these four incarnations; 17): in the first incarnation he exhibits dissatisfaction with his gains at the expense of others, and speculatively, may have a fourth ray personality; 18): the fourth incarnation sees him with a first ray personality to accompany his first ray soul; 19): in the second incarnation he reorganizes his approach and may have a third or seventh ray personality; 20): in the third incarnation he becomes very sensitive and truly rebuilds with a second ray personality; 21): the fourth incarnation sees him with a first ray personality to accompany his first ray soul; 22): this fourth incarnation has a very unusual series of personality rays—a fourth ray mind, a second ray astral body, and a sixth ray physical body; 23): speculation upon how this patterning of the personality rays of successive incarnations may work in the case of the reorientation of individuals with different soul rays;
