57. The universe is a vast net of energy rays.
The primary ray is that which emanates from the
Subtle Origin, and it is entirely positive, creative,
and constructive.
Each being, however, converts the energy of this
primary ray into its own ray, and these lower rays
can be either positive or negative, constructive or
destructive.

An individual who is not yet fully evolved can be
adversely affected by negative energy rays in the net
around him.
For example, the combined influence of several
negative rays might cause an undeveloped person to
believe that his life is being controlled by an
invisible, oppressive ruler.
Such a misconception can be a significant barrier to
enlightenment.

To attain full evolution and the status of an integral
being, you must be aware of this intricate net and
its influences upon you.
By integrating the positive, harmonious energy rays
with the positive elements of your own being, and
eliminating the subtle negative influences, you can
enhance all aspects of your life.

In order to eliminate the negative influences, simply
ignore them.

To integrate the positive influences, consciously
reconnect yourself with the primary energy ray of
the Subtle Origin by adopting the practices of the
Integral Way.

Then all the rays in the net around you will merge
back into harmonious oneness.
