Alice A. Bailey

It is that force which stirs in the heart of humanity and finds expression through the medium of world avatars, through the mystical yearning found in every human being, through all movements that have for their objective the welfare of humanity."

6 "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."

13 "Intuitional illumination is the present goal of consciousness."

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 "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."

16 "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."

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

18 "The law of the universe is the law of love."

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."
