A Treatise on White Magic
Alice A. Bailey

1 "One of the main necessities…at this time is to endeavour to think in terms of the one Reality."

2 "The energy of thought is for the good of all and for the furtherance of the Plan of God."

3 "See to it that you deal with patience and forbearance with those of your brothers who…sacrifice the good of the group for their own personal ends or who use unworthy methods. Give to them love and care and a ready helping hand, for they will stumble on the way and sound the depth of the law. Stand ready then to lift them up and to offer to them opportunities for service, knowing that service is the great healer and teacher."

4 "The smallest unit is an integral part of the whole."

5 "The One Existence has brought the phenomenal world into being."

6 "Duality is only a stage on the evolutionary arc, leading eventually to the realisation of unity."

7 "World unity, brotherhood in its true sense, the growth of telepathic interplay, the elimination of the non-essentials which serve to separate the thoughts of men and bring about separateness on the physical plane, and the laying of a true emphasis upon the fundamentals of the Ageless Wisdom, the manifestation of a true understanding, the bringing about of at-one-ment with the soul, the recognition of those who belong to the group of world Saviours – this is the immediate work to be done."

8 "God breathes and His pulsating life emanates from the divine heart and manifests as the vital energy of all forms."

9 "Just as the varied organs of the human body are inter-related by the nervous system, so within the body of the planet are the various kingdoms in nature and the multiplicity of forms. Back of the objective universe is the subtler sensitive body – one organism, not many, one sentient, responsive, connected form."

10 "All lines gather into One. Let the soul realize the One in Many."

11 "All leads back to the idea of unity, and of the Oneness of all manifestation."

12 "May the Power of the one Life pour through the group of all true servers. May the Love of the One Soul characterize the lives of all who seek to aid the Great Ones. May I fulfill my part in the One work through self-forgetfulness, harmlessness and right speech."

13 "We need to realize more deeply that the whole process is a divine one, and that evil, so called, is but an illusion and an inherent part of duality, giving place in time and out of time to a divine reality. Evil is due to wrong perception and erroneous interpretation of that which is perceived."

14 "Memorise and use at all times, when swept by illusory fears and needless foreboding, the following formula or prayer: 'Let reality govern my every thought, and truth be the master of my life."

15 "In the thoughts of purity, dedication, love and service, are summed up the nature and the destiny of man."

16 "The Hindus say very beautifully that 'the Great Singer built the worlds, and the Universe is His Song."

17 "The individual mind is an integral part of the Universal Mind."

18 "All forms are…externalizations of the one Infinite Being."

19 "Through humanity, the nature of reality will be revealed; the true and the beautiful will be manifested; the divine plan will eventually work out, and that energy be transmitted to all forms in nature which will enable the inner spiritual reality to emerge."

20 "The thoughts of men have ever been religious. There has never been a time when religion or the thoughts of men about God, about the infinite, and about the Life which has brought all into being has not been present."

21 "The Delphic injunction 'Man, know thyself' was an inspired utterance, intended to give man the clue to the mystery of deity."

22 "I dwell within a world of unity. I know all souls are one." Atlantean chant

23 "If men carried the concept of brotherhood with all its implications into the life and work of every day, whether between the capitalist and the labourer, the politician and the people, between nation and nation, or between race and race, there would emerge that peace on earth which nothing could upset or overturn."

24 "A gradual and steady growth in group consciousness and responsibility, a submergence of the wishes of the personal self and the manifestation of a loving spirit characterise those who are oriented towards the divine whole."

25 "The heart of humanity is sound and out of the present chaos and perhaps largely because of it, there will emerge those competent to deal with the situation and adequate to the task of unification and synthesis."
