When we ‘hold’ a value, it shows what we think, say, or feel — but we may not necessarily support it through behaviors or actions. A value rides under a ray.
A quality is a value that we begin to adopt in our lives with variable levels of success. One may find it easy to radiate a quality to friends but not to enemies, for example.
A virtue is a quality that is imbued fully at some level(s) of one’s experience but not at all levels. Perhaps, for example, a person may radiate a virtue toward others but still be judgmental toward her or himself.
When a virtue is fully imbued at all levels, it is a ray. When that happens, we experience ‘riding’ the waves of radiant light as a way of being – or a ray of being. Some attributes are knowing mastery as simplicity, dynamic peace as bliss, God as soul in motion.
