The Great White Brotherhood by Simon C. Godwin
article source www.masterhilarion.com
The world of spirit operates on hierarchy based on the degree of evolution of each soul. The ultimate goal for all creatures is to be reunited with God through a long cycle of reincarnation and purification.
Spirits who reach a level of purity which does not require them to incarnate (called Fifth initiation) aare the so called “Ascended Masters”, Spiritual Hierarchy, Elders of The Race and The Great White Brotherhood. (The term white is indicative of their brightness and pure light that makes their energy bodies). The Ascended Masters are responsible for the evolution of mankind along seven specific planetary rays. Each ray has a ruler, a Lord or Chohans of that particular ray (also called Aspects of the Creator), with Sanat Kumara being the esoteric name for the Ruler of our solar system, or Ruler of all Rays (the rays are called the attributes of the Creator”). The Solar Hierarchy is the esoteric name for God or all that is, for it rules the entire solar system.
The Spiritual hierarchy, is however composed of spirits of varying degrees of evolution; marked by their esoteric initiations (the highest is the seventh). The Adepts have taken the fourth initiation (also called the Renunciation because they are still bound by the duty or rebirth), the Ascended Masters who have taken the Fifth Initiation ( or Ascension), the Chohans (who have taken the Sixth Initiation), and the Lord Maitreya (or the Messiah who has taken the Seventh Initiation). We are all on the path to Ascension because the ultimate goal of all Monads (Divine sparks) is to be reunited with God.
The rulerships of the rays are divided thus according to Theosophy:
1) First Ray (also called Divine Will) or The Brotherhood of The Diamond Heart

From “The Masters and the Path” by Leadbeater
“There is much direct and recent evidence for the existence of these Great Ones. In my earlier days I never needed any such evidence, because I was fully persuaded as a result of my studies that there must be such people. To believe that there were such glorified Men seemed perfectly natural, and my only desire was to meet Them face to face Yet there are many among the newer members of the Society who, reasonably enough, want to know what evidence there is. There is a considerable amount of personal testimony. Madame Blavatsky and Colonel Olcott, the co-founders of The Theosophical Society, Dr. Annie Besant, our present President, and I myself-- all of us have seen some of these Great Ones, and many other members of the Society have also been privileged to see one or two of Them, and there is ample testimony in what all these people have written.
It is sometimes objected that those who saw Them, or fancied that they did so, may have been dreaming or perhaps deluded. The chief reason, I think, for the possibility of such a suggestion is that we have very rarely seen the Adepts at a time when both They and we were in our physical bodies. In the early days of the Society, when only Madame Blavatsky had developed higher faculties, the Masters not infrequently materialized Themselves so that all could see Them, and showed Themselves thus physically on various occasions. You will find many records of such happenings in the earlier history of our Society, but of course the Great One so showing Himself was not in His physical body, but in a materialized form.
Many of us habitually and constantly see Them during our sleep. We go out in our astral bodies (or in the mental body, according to our development) and we visit Them and see Them in Their physical bodies; but we are not at that time in ours, and that is why on the physical plane people tend to be sceptical about such experiences. Men object: “But in these cases either you who saw Them were out of the physical body, and may have been dreaming or deluded, or Those who appeared to you came phenomenally and then disappeared again; so how do you know that They were what you suppose Them to be?”
There are a few cases in which both the Adept and the person who saw Him were in the physical body. It happened with Madame Blavatsky; I have heard her testify that she lived for some time in a monastery in Nepal, where she saw three of our Masters constantly in Their physical vehicles. Some of Them have come down more than once from Their mountain retreats into India in Their physical bodies. Colonel Olcott spoke of having seen two of Them on those occasions; he had met the Master Morya and also the Master Kuthumi. Damodar K. Mavalankar, whom I knew in 1884, had encountered the Master Kuthumi in His physical body. There was the case of S. Ramaswami Iyer, a gentleman whom I knew well in those days, who had the experience of meeting the Master Morya physically, and has written an account of that meeting which I shall quote later; and there was the case of Mr. W. T. Brown of the London Lodge, who also was privileged to meet one of the Great Ones under similar conditions. There is also a vast amount of Indian testimony which has never been collected and sifted, mainly because those to whom these experiences came were so thoroughly persuaded of the existence of Supermen and of the possibility of meeting Them that they did not regard any individual case as worthy of record. “

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this perfect summary of the Hierarchies of Light, dear Angelica!
What was new to me is what is said about the Chohan of the 4th Ray not being Paolo Veronese.Who is this Master Paul, then, can you help me?
Love and LIGHT and Divine Empowerment to ALL of Humanity :-)
The Master Paul is the current Chohan of the Fourth Ray, the Ray of Harmony and Balance and the Purity of the Godhead. He is also the Keeper of the White Flame of Purity. He has had some early incarnations on Earth in the times of Lemuria and Atlantis, where he was Priest / High Priest in charge of great Spiritual Temples. In the time of Atlantis he was considered to be extremely pure, and it was believed that simply being within his aura could transmute karma and dissolve negativity. His best known incarnation was as Paul the Apostle, and it is this name he bears as the Master Paul. (There has been some confusion regarding the Master Paul and Lord Hilarion, whom it has been said incarnated as Saint Paul. It is our understanding that they are two separate Beings, and that Hilarion overshadowed Paul in that lifetime.) He and his twin flame, Lady Venusea (ven-oos-ia), came from Venus with Sanat Kumara's original entourage. Paul has the typical appearance of an Atlantean - tall and slender with blonde hair and blue eyes, whilst his Lady has the translucent glowing white skin, white-blonde hair and piercing blue eyes of the typical Venusian. They each wear the Jewel of Atlantis, a 6-pointed Star which is the sign of a fully awakened Star-Borne Being, and symbolises Unity with the Universe. Their Etheric retreat is over the area of Al Hamra in Libya. Master Paul works very closely with Archaeon Gabriel, Hilarion and St. Germain and the Violet Flame, and if we use the Flame of Purity hand-in-hand with the Violet Flame they supply a powerful tool for change. It is Paul's role with the White Flame of Purity which is especially important in his role at this time, which is based on helping us purify all our lower and baser instincts, so that we may become clearer and thus more balanced.
I resonate with this ... I will compare more of the information above with the information I posted in our group on the 7 Rays - may I ask where the information is from? There are several irregularities and I am always curious to learn more! I have always identified Serapis Bey, for example, witht he White Ray - not the Pink.
I am looking forward to exchanging ideas :-)

The Good Force be with you! <3 O:) *
