The ruby ray is an intense and holy love that is developed through the path of sacrifice, surrender, selflessness, and service to uplift all sentient life. The ruby ray activates the first secret ray and ultimately all five secret rays. It is the ruby fire of ultimate love that annihilates ignorance and evil.
The hierarchy of the ruby ray
Jesus Christ, Lord Maitreya, Gautama Buddha, and Sanat Kumara are initiators on the path of the ruby ray and hold the offices of the hierarchs of the four quadrants. These offices (embodied by the Four Cosmic Forces) are noted in Ezekiel 1:10 and Revelation 4:7 as the Lion, the Calf (Ox), the Man, and the Flying Eagle.
As diagrammed on the Cosmic Clock, Lord Maitreya represents the Father on the 12 o’clock line (etheric quadrant) in the office of the Lion; Lord Gautama, the Holy Spirit on the 9 o’clock line (physical quadrant) in the office of the Calf; Jesus Christ, the Son on the 3 o’clock line (mental quadrant) in the office of the Man; and Sanat Kumara, the Divine Mother on the 6 o’clock line (emotional quadrant) in the office of the Flying Eagle.
The path of the ruby ray
The path of the ruby ray is the path of sacrifice, selflessness, service and surrender. These four precepts are the key to balancing the threefold flame in the four quadrants, fire, air, water and earth, representing the four lower bodies: etheric, mental, emotional, physical.
