Alice A. Bailey

3 "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."

5 "Love breaks down every barrier, and fuses diverse groups in union….Love gathers all to itself, and carries all on with itself, welding separated units into a unified homogeneous whole."

6 "Krishna…laid down in the 'Gita' the simple rules whereby depression and doubt can be overcome. They may be briefly summarised as follows: a. Know thyself to be the undying One. b. Control thy mind, for through that mind the undying One can be known. c. Learn that the form is but the veil which hides the splendour of Divinity. d. Realize that the One Life pervades all forms so that there is no death, no distress, no separation."

7 "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 "Study your daily conduct and words and thoughts so as to make them utterly harmless. Set yourself to think those thoughts about yourself and others which will be constructive and positive, and hence harmless in their effects."

16 "True knowledge is intelligent love."

17 "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."

18 "Harmlessness is the expression of the life of the man who realizes himself to be everywhere."

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

20 "That the inner vision may be ours, the eye see clearly the glory of the Lord, and the voice speak only in benediction, and the hands be used only in helpfulness, may well be the prayer of each of us."

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

22 "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."

23 "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."

24 "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."

25 "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."
