In Intermediate Studies of the Human Aura, the Ascended Master Djwal Kul gives the following teaching on the test of the ten:

The solar-plexus chakra has ten petals—five with the positive charge focusing the thrust of Alpha in the secret rays and five with a negative charge focusing the return current of Omega in the secret rays. Thus to the evolving soul consciousness, the solar plexus is the vehicle whereby the initiation of the test of the ten is passed. This is the test of selflessness, which always involves the test of the emotions and of the God-control of those emotions through the Divine Ego, which can come into prominence in the soul only as the result of the surrender of the human ego.

The desire body, as we have said, is anchored in and releases its energy through the solar plexus and the throat chakra. The desire body of mankind contains a greater amount of God’s energy than any of the other three lower bodies. Whatever motives and motivational patterns are contained within the desire body, these are fulfilled both consciously and unconsciously as energy spirals are pressed into manifestation through the solar plexus and the throat chakra.

Mankind are hindered in their fulfillment of the divine plan only insofar as their desires do not reflect the desiring of God to be everywhere the fullness of life and truth and love. When, therefore, mankind, with the determination and the surrender of a Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane, surrender all lesser desires to the greater desire of the Universal Self, then the entire weight of the momentum of energy in the desire body propels the fulfillment of the will of God and the soul’s own blueprint is outpictured in the four lower bodies.

It is, then, in the hour of the surrender “Nevertheless, not my will but thine be done”[1] that the full momentum of the ten petals in the solar plexus is brought to bear upon the being of man as the multiplying factor of the mastery and the attainment of the other chakras.

The reservoir of light held in the great sun disc, the magnet of the sun presence within the solar plexus, is the energy that multiplies the mastery of love in the heart, of wisdom in the crown, of purity, action, and flow in the base, of freedom in the soul, of vision in the third eye, of service in the solar plexus, and of the sacred Word in the throat.

The energies that can be drawn from the desire body of God, anchored in the solar plexus, and released for the blessing of mankind are indeed unlimited. And whether they are used for healing, for science, for abundance, or for the furthering of the arts and the culture of the Mother, they will lend the momentum of the power of the ten and of the ten-times-ten to the mastery of the other six chakras....

Woodcut illustrating the parable of the talents

Remember, then, the parable of the man who traveled into a far country and called his servants and delivered unto them his goods.[2] The one to whom he gave the five talents is the one who required the initiation of the test of the ten in the solar plexus. The master gave to his servant the five talents as the thrust of the energy of Alpha. In the solar-plexus chakra, these talents are like five positive electrodes of the five secret rays, and they represent the thrust of the Alpha current.

It is up to the soul as it abides in time and space, far from the presence of the lord (the Christ Self and the I AM Presence), to use these electrodes as the masculine polarity of Spirit to draw unto itself through the magnetism of the Spirit the corresponding energies of Omega (the five negative electrodes of the five secret rays), the returning current of the Mother flame that rises from the base-of-the-spine chakra. The tarrying in time and space until the lord returns is an opportunity to prove one’s stewardship—one’s ability to hold fast to that which is received and to use it to multiply the essence of Spirit in the planes of Mater.

And so when the lord returned to the servant, he found that the one who had received five talents came to him and brought him other five talents, saying, “Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.” Thus, having completed the mastery of the test of the ten, the servant received the commendation of the lord, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.”

The joy of the lord is the joyous energy of the sixth ray anchored in the solar plexus for the multiplication of the energies of life. Note that only five of the ten virgins passed the test of being prepared for the entering in to the chamber of the heart with the Chohan of the Sixth Ray, the Master of the Piscean cycle.

This is the hour of the mastery of the feminine ray through the initiation that is called the test of the ten. And the test of the ten is the test of selflessness whereby you salute the Mother ray with the Hail Mary and thereby confirm the balance of the ten petals of the solar plexus, giving ten Hail Marys in each of the five sections of your morning rosary. And the test of the ten multiplied by the action of the five secret rays that form the star of man’s being is for the drawing in through the chakras of the energies of the Mother and of the Holy Spirit.

This is the age of opportunity for balance in the heart, balance in the inflow and the outflow of the sacred breath, and balance in the tests of the seven-times-seven multiplied by the power of the ten.[3]
