21: “I shall endeavour to bring to your attention your personal point in evolution. I would remind you at this point that these seven rays are sharply different as to colouring and phenomenal effect and, at the same time, I would remark that – under the Law of Occult Paradox – the seven Lords of Being (the seven Rays) are widely different but remain non-separative.”
LUCILLE CEDERCRANS: Nature of the Soul
Lesson 14, page 183: “At this point the probationer begins to comprehend the Law of Paradox. He learns that all concepts, all systems of thought, must be based upon a causal truth. Anything that is must have its foundation in reality or it could not be. At the same time everything that is must be false for it is confined in a form. Thus, he applies the Law of Paradox to every concept, every form, every experience with which he is familiar, learning to understand the polar opposites, the so-called good and bad as ‘‘essence’’ and ‘‘form’’. Nothing is strictly true or false, good or bad, everything is both, and through a recognition of this, the essence or reality and the form or substance can be so fused as to produce the whole tone, which in its magical effect tunes or harmonizes all other frequencies within its range of influence.
This is Harmony – a differentiated expression of Love-Wisdom. It produces that understanding which is a prerequisite to right relationship, whether it be with the One Life, a situation, or among peoples.”
Lesson 36, page 441: “Paradox is polarity. It is not contradiction. This must always be taken into consideration if a student is to grasp and to appreciate Truth.”
