You may be right but I am unacquainted (in depth) with the Caycee writing
and records of his visions. And of this small store I have nothing on this.

Ask yourself about what you already know of BUDDHI in Man and Nature.  An
honest world and Universe approaching to the abode of a host of MONADS that
have achieved MAHATMASHIP ?  the flowering of BUDDHI-MANAS.  What a
difference from our sorry, fear filled world of today!

All I know and trust and have so far proven (to my satisfaction  to be fair,
honest and accurate is THEOSOPHY  -- and I can recollect no such statement.

So ?????????  Have a look at this and form your conclusions



"The star under which a human Entity is born, says the Occult teaching, will
for ever remain its star, throughout the whole cycle of its incarnations in
one manvantara.  But this is not his astrological star.  The latter is
concerned and connected with the personality, the former with the
INDIVIDUALITY.  The "Angel" of that Star, or the Dhyani-Buddha will be
either the guiding or simply the presiding "Angel," so to say, in every new
rebirth of the monad, which is part of his own essence. though his vehicle,
man, may remain for ever ignorant of this fact.

The adepts have each their Dhyani-Buddha, their elder "twin Soul," and they
know it, calling it "Father-Soul," and "Father-Fire."  It is only at the
last and supreme initiation, however, that they learn it when placed face to
face with the bright "image."  ( Zanoni...his Augoeides.)... (513 bot.)
"There are seven chief groups of such Dhyan Chohans...the primeval seven
RAYS.  Humanity, occultism teaches us, is divided into seven distinct groups
and their sub-divisions, mental, spiritual, and physical." 
	SD I 572-3
	[See the foot-note SD I 573]

"Matter or Substance is septenary within our World, as it is so beyond it.
Moreover, each of its states or principles is graduated into seven degrees
of density."	SD I 289

"It is that LIGHT which condenses into the forms of the "Lords of
Being"--the first and highest of which are, collectively JIVATMA, or
Pratyagatma (GLOS. p. 261 -- ALAYA)...From these downwards--formed from the
ever consolidating waves of that light, which becomes on the objective plane
gross matter--proceed the numerous hierarchies of the Creative Forces, some
formless, others having their own distinctive form."	SD I  33-4

"Having sprung into being under the quickening influence of the uncreated
beam, the reflection of the great Central Sun that radiates on the shores of
the river of Life, it is the inner principle in them [the Beings of
Hierarchies] which belong to the waters of immortality, while its
differentiated clothing is as perishable as man's body." 	SD  I  106

"The hosts of these Sons of Light and "Mind-born Sons" of the first
manifested Ray of the UNKNOWN ALL, are the very root of spiritual man."
	SD  I  106

" absolute consciousness, "Adi-Buddhi;"  and the Buddhist philosopher
knows that there are Planetary Spirits, the "Dhyan Chohans."...If the Dhyan
Chohans and all the Invisible Beings--the Seven Centres and their direct
Emanations, the minor centres of Energy--are the direct reflux of the ONE
LIGHT, yet men are far removed from these, since the whole of the visible
Kosmos consists of Self-produced beings, the creatures of Karma."... they
teach that only "two things are (objectively) eternal, namely Akasa and
Nirvana;" and that these are ONE in reality, and but a maya when divided. "
SD I  635 -6 

" the eye of the Seer, the higher Planetary Powers appear under two
aspects:  the subjective--as influences--, and the objective -- as mystic
FORMS, which under Karmic law, become a Presence, Spirit and Matter being
One,...  Spirit 1s matter on the seventh plane;  matter is Spirit--on the
lowest point of its cyclic activity;  and both--are MAYA."
		SD I 633

"The Planetary Spirits are the informing spirits of the Stars 1n general,
and of the Planets especially.  They rule the destinies of men who are all
born under one or other of their constellations;  the 2nd. and 3rd. groups
pertaining to other systems have the same functions, and all rule various
departments of Nature deities who preside over the 8 points of
the compass...

Loka-Palas...The Lipika...are the Spirits of the Universe, whereas the
Builders are only our own planetary deities.  The former belong to the most
occult portion of Cosmogenesis...the Lipika are connected with Karma--being
its direct Recorders.  (p. 126): "the Lipika are concerned with Humanity's
hereafter."	SD I 128

"..the true esoteric meaning is that most of them ( the Agnishwatta Pitris)
were destined to incarnate as the Egos of the forthcoming crop of Mankind.
The human Ego is neither Atman nor Buddhi, but the higher Manas:  the
intellectual fruition and the efflorescence of the intellectual
self-conscious Egotism--in the higher spiritual sense.  The ancient works
refer to 1t as Karana Sarira on the plane of the Sutratma, which is the
golden thread on which, like beads, the various personalities of this higher
Ego are strung... these beings were returning Nirvanees, from preceding
Maha-Manvantaras--ages of incalculable duration..."		SD II 79


"...from the Sun to the vital heat of the meanest organic being--the world
of Form and Existence is an immense chain, whose links are all connected."
SD I 604

"...the chief features of one's life are always in accordance with the
"Constellation" one is born under, or, we should say, with the
characteristics of its animating principle or the deity that presides over
it, whether we call it a Dhyan Chohan...or an Archangel...In ancient
symbolism it was always the SUN (though the Spiritual, not the visible, Sun
was meant), that was supposed to send forth the chief Saviors and Avatars.

Hence the connecting Link between the Buddhas, the Avatars, and so many
other incarnations of the highest SEVEN.

The closer the approach to one Prototype, "in Heaven," the better for the
mortal whose personality was chosen, by his own personal deity (the 7th
principle), as its terrestrial abode.  For with every effort of will toward
purification and unity with that "Self-god," one of the lower rays breaks
and the spiritual entity of man is drawn higher and ever higher to the ray
that supersedes the first, until from ray to ray, the inner man is drawn
into the one and highest beam of the Parent SUN."		SD I 638

"Yes;" our destiny is written in the stars!"  Only the closer the union
between the mortal reflection MAN and his celestial PROTOTYPE, the less
dangerous the external conditions and subsequent reincarnations--which
neither Buddhas nor Christs can escape. "	SD I 639

" is a free agent during his stay on earth.  He cannot escape his
ruling destiny, but he has the choice of two paths that lead him in that
direction, and he can reach the goal of misery--if such is decreed to him,
either in the snowy white robes of the Martyr, or in the soiled garments of
a volunteer in the iniquitous course;  for, there are external and internal
conditions which affect the determination of our will upon our actions, and
it is in our power to follow either of the two...this destiny is guided
either by the heavenly voice of the invisible prototype outside of us, or by
our more intimate astral, or inner man, who is but too often the evil genius
of the embodied entity called man.  Both these lead on the outward man, but
one of them must prevail;  and from the very beginning of the invisible
affray the stern and implacable law of compensation steps 1n and takes its
course, faithfully following the fluctuations...[of] this self-made
destiny..."          SD I 639

"It is the spiritual evolution of the inner, invisible man that forms the
fundamental tenet in the Occult Sciences...the ONE Universal Life,
independent of matter...and...the individual intelligences that animate the
various manifestations of this Principle...The ONE LIFE is closely related
to the one law which governs the World of Being--KARMA...

(p. 635)  "The one Cosmic atom becomes seven atoms on the plane of matter,
and each is transformed into a center of energy;  that same atom becomes
seven rays on the plane of spirit, and the 7 creative forces of nature,
radiating from the root-essence...follow, one the right, the other the left
path, separate till the end of the Kalpa, and yet are in close embrace.
[KARMA unites them]...The atoms emanated from the Central Point emanate in
their turn new centers of energy, which, under the potential breath of
Fohat, begin their work from within without, and multiply other minor
centres. [these]...form in their turn the roots or developing causes of new
effects, from worlds and  "man-bearing" globes, down to the genera, species,
and classes of all the seven kingdoms (of which we know only four)..."	
	SD  I  634 - 635

"Occultism sees in all these Forces and manifestations a ladder, the lower
rungs of which belong to exoteric physics, and the higher are traced to a
living, intelligent, invisible Power, which is, as a rule, the unconcerned,
and exceptionally, the conscious control of the sense-born phenomenon
designated as this or another natural law."	SD  I 293

"Each of these Forces has a living Conscious Entity at its head, of which
entity it is and emanation."	SD I 293

"...[Occultism] the absolute necessity of mechanicians of some sort
behind those Elements [or within]--a dogma with us."	SD I 594

"The light of the ONE MASTER, the one unfading golden light of Spirit,
shoots its effulgent beams on the Disciple from the very first.  Its rays
thread through the thick, dark clouds of matter..."	VOICE 19

"...the Dhyan-Chohans or Dhyani these correspond mystically to
the human Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, known as the "Manushi (or human)
Buddhas," the latter are also designated "Anupadaka" once that their whole
personality is merged 1n their compound 6th and 7th principles--or
Atma-Buddhi, and that they have become the "diamond-souled (Vajra-sattvas),
the full Mahatmas."	SD I 52

"Do not attempt to unveil the secret of being and non-being to those unable
to see the hidden meaning of Apollo's Heptachord--the lyre of the radiant
god, in each of the 7 strings of which dwelleth the Spirit, Soul and Astral
body of the Kosmos, whose shell only has now fallen into the hands of Modern
Science...(SD  I  529, bottom)..."The number 7 being attached to...each of
those primitive Initiators..."	SD I 167

"There are 7 chief groups of such Dhyan Chohans...the primeval Seven Rays.
Humanity, occultism teaches, is divided into 7 distinct groups and their
sub-divisions, mental, spiritual, and physical.  (*)  Hence the 7 chief
planets, the spheres of the indwelling 7 spirits, under each of which is
born one of the human groups which is guided and influenced thereby.  There
are only 7 planets (specially connected with this earth), and 12
houses...each of which varieties is born under one of the 7 planets and one
of the said countless planetary combinations.  	[See Theosophist, Aug.
1886]"		SD I 573 fn

"(*)	"...the 7 wise ones (rays of wisdom, Dhyanis) fashion 7 paths (or
lines as also Races in another sense)... they are primarily beams of light
falling on the paths leading to wisdom...the 7 Rays witch fall free from the
macrocosmic center, the 7 principles in the metaphysical, the 7 Races in the
physical sense..."	SD II 191

"Every Buddha meets at his last initiations all the great adepts who reached
Buddhahood during the preceding ages...every class of adepts has its own
bond of spiritual communion which knits them together...The only possible
and effectual way of entering into such by bringing oneself
within the influence of the Spiritual light which radiates from one's own
Logos...such communion is only possible between persons whose souls derive
their life and sustenance from the same divine RAY, and that, as seven
distinct rays radiate from the 'Central Spiritual Sun,' all adepts and Dhyan
Chohans are divisible into 7 classes, each of which is guided, controlled,
and overshadowed by one of the 7 forms or manifestations of the divine
Wisdom."   (Theosophist, Aug., 1886)
	SD I 574      (HPB quotes S. Row.)

"It is then the "Seven Sons of Light"--called after their planets (by the
rabble) often identified with them--namely Saturn, Jupiter, Mercury, Mars,
Venus...the Sun and Moon, which are...our heavenly Parents, or "Father,"
synthetically...the 4 exoteric planets, and the 3 others...were the heavenly
bodies in direct astral and psychic communication with the Earth, its
Guides, and Watchers--morally and physically...their "Regents" or Rectors
with our Monads and spiritual faculties."		SD  I  575

"(xxv)...The 7 Beings in the Sun are the 7 Holy Ones, Self-born from the
inherent power in the matrix of Mother substance.  It is they who send the 7
Principal forces, called rays, which at the beginning of Pralaya will center
into 7 new Suns for the next Manvantara.  The energy from which they spring
into conscious existence in every Sun, is what some people call Vishnu (*) ,
which is the Breath of the ABSOLUTENESS.   (*)   In the same manner as a man
approaches a mirror placed upon a stand, beholds in it his own image, so the
energy or reflection of Vishnu (the Sun) is never disjointed but remains in
the Sun as in a mirror that is there stationed. --  Vishnu Purana."	SD I

"The essential faculty possessed by all the cosmic and terrestrial elements,
of generating within themselves a regular and harmonious series of results,
a concatenation of causes and effects is an irrefutable proof that they are
either animated by an extra or intra INTELLIGENCE, or conceal such within or
behind the manifested veil.  ... Newton ...  recognized fully the limits
that separate the action of natural Forces from that of the INTELLIGENCES
that set the innumerable laws into order and action...To become complete and
comprehensible, a cosmological theory has to start with a primordial
Substance diffused throughout boundless Space, of an intellectual and divine
Nature.  That substance must be the Soul and Spirit, the Synthesis and 7th
Principle of the manifested Kosmos, and to serve as a spiritual Upadhi to
this, there must be the 6th, its vehicle--primordial physical
matter...though its nature must for ever escape our limited normal senses."
SD I 594

"..."the Mind"--the collective body of Dhyan Chohans, we say--began to work
upon and communicated to it motion and order..."	SD I 595

Dear Dallas:

Thanks for the references.  Yes, I do have the separate index to the SD
and I use it all the time.  I had already looked up several referencs
but didn't find exactly the one I wanted.  

Now I am wondering if I had
found it in the Edgar Cayce readings a long time ago.  I lived near Va.
Beach when I was a teenager and got acquainted with the ARE and all the
people there at the headquarters, including Hugh Lynn Cayce, one of
Edgar's sons.
