Esoteric Psychology I
Alice A. Bailey

1 "Great is the glory of humanity and wonderful are the divine functions which it embodies."

2 "Spirit is One, but within that essential unity the points of fire, the divine sparks, can be seen and noted."

3 "There is but one substance, present in nature in varying degrees of density and of vibratory activity, and..this substance is impelled by urgent purpose and expressive of divine intent."

4 "Each child of God can say: I am born of the love of the Father for the Mother, of the desire of life for form. I express, therefore, the love and the magnetic attractiveness of the God nature, and the responsiveness of the form nature, and am consciousness itself, aware of Deity or Life."

5 "It is becoming gradually apparent that under diversity lies a basic unity, and that our awareness is right and true and correct in so far as we can identify ourselves with this unity."

6 "Asiatics, Nordics, Jews, Gentiles, Americans, and Anglo-Saxons, the Africans and all other world races are children of the same Father, fed from the same source of Life."

7 "There is a Plan, and the love of God is the basic law of all manifestation and the origin of all evolutionary momentum."

8 "Every living form, through its radiation, affects every other form."

9 "Humanity is an expression of the life of God."

10 "'Know thyself' is a potent key to the knowledge of Deity and to the workings of divinity."

11 "Man is the custodian of that wisdom which will enable him to further the divine plan and bring the will of God to fruition."

12 "The mode or method of development for humanity is self-expression and self-realisation. When this process is consummated the self expressed is the One Self."

13 "A symbol is an outward and visible sign of an inward and spiritual reality."

14 "(Humanity) as a whole is now coming into an era wherein the mind is becoming a potent factor; many are learning to hold the mind steady in the light, and consequently are receptive to ideas hitherto unrecognised. If a group of minds can be so drawn together and fused into an adequate synthesis, and if they (in their individual and daily meditation) keep focussed towards that which can be apprehended, great concepts can be grasped and great ideas intuited. People can train themselves – as a group – to think these intuited ideas of the true and the beautiful and of the Plan into manifested existence, and thus a creation of beauty, embodying a divine principle, can be built."

15 "The achievement of full awareness is of course the goal of the evolutionary process."

16 "To humanity is given the privilege of revealing the nature of the divine consciousness."

17 "There are always those at every epoch in human history who are able to solve the problems which arise, and who are sent in for that very purpose."

18 "A grub or worm working out its little life in a mass of decaying substance is as much a spiritual manifestation as an initiate working out his destiny in a mass of rapidly changing human forms. It is all manifested Deity; it is all divine expression and all a form of sensitive awareness and of response to environment."

19 "The attractive magnetic love of God pours through His created universe; it emerges in the consciousness and determines the objective of all evolving forms."

20 "Divinity must be lived, expressed and manifested, to be understood."

21 "The work of Christ was to demonstrate the divine possibilities and powers latent in every human being."
