The Destiny of the Nations

Print
Written by Alice A. Bailey

The Destiny of the Nations was first printed in 1949, after WW II, as part of a larger corpus of esoteric teachings (Ancient Wisdom) published by the Lucis Trust.  This short book deals with the future roles of nations as history evolves according to occult principles.  Bailey's writings presumably had a transcendental origin; whether you believe that or not, the ideas presented here are worth considering,  The basic idea is that transcendental  influences ("rays") play major roles in the historical development of major nations.  The "Soul Ray" of each nation influences the moral and spiritual behavior of the nation; the "Personality Ray" influences national behavior on the physical plane.  The ray makeup of some major nations now playing major roles in current human history are:

India:  Soul Ray: Ray 1 (ray of will & power); Personality Ray 4 (harmony through conflict)

China:  Soul Ray: Ray 1 (ray of will & power); Personality Ray 3 (active intelligence)

USA:  Soul Ray:  Ray 2 (ray of love & wisdom); Personality Ray 6 (devotion and idealism)

Russia:  Soul Ray 7 (ray of ceremonial order and white magic); Personality Ray 6 (devotion and idealism)

Each of these ray influences can be beneficial or detrimental, depending on the will and spiritual development of the nation's citizenry.

As the transcendental source for these ideas suggested, "ponder on this."
