The Rays and The Initiations
Alice A. Bailey

1 "The principle of freedom is a leavening energy which can permeate substance in a unique manner;….This principle of freedom is one of the attributes of Deity (like will, love and mind)."

2 "Synthesis is an attribute of the divine will and the outstanding quality of Deity."

3 "We are all the children of God; we are all equally divine; we are all on our way to the revelation of divinity."

4 "Revelation concerns Oneness and nothing else. The practical nature of this truth is only recognized when the disciple attempts to do two things: to realise it individually, and to bring the nature of planetary unity and of non-separateness to the minds and into the lives of men everywhere."

5 "Coherency, affecting lives, forms and substances, is an expression of will and purpose, motivated by love and implemented intelligently in carrying forward the plans through which the Purpose seeks expression."

6 "Evil is after all only an impelling sense of difference, leading inevitably to separative action."

7 "Seek those new attitudes and those new creative approaches which will result not alone in the building of the individual, but also in the fusion of the many 'radiant strands' which will produce those 'connecting cables', speaking symbolically, which will relate the planetary centres and present the medium along which can pass the fiery will and the predetermined purpose of Deity. This will bring about the reconstruction of the manifested worlds, and in this task each and every one of you can have his share."

8 "We are equally and essentially…expressions of the Monad, the One."

9 "Progress from a dimly lighted area in the divine manifestation into one of supernal glory is the story of the Path of Evolution."

10 "In the coming new cycle the emphasis will be upon group work and activity, upon group initiation and group approach to the Center of Life."

11 "The quality of spirituality is Love."

12 "All form a great interlocking directorate through which the will of God is working out."

13 "The will-to-good of the world knowers is the magnetic seed of the future."

14 "Oneness is the major characteristic of the Universal Mind."

15 "The Laws of the universe are the modes of expression, the life impulses and the way of existence or activity of the One in Whom we live and move and have our being."

16 "The steady pulsation of the evolutionary rhythm permeates every atom, form, group and centre, producing effect upon the lowest forms of existence and on and up to the very highest; there is naught anywhere but progress and a steady moving forward into clearer light and greater livingness."

17 "We must seek to understand the sum total in the light of the part, the Macrocosm in the light of the Microcosm."

18 "Number gives the clue to the form and purpose of the life which the form veils."

19 "Love is a word for the underlying motive of creation."

20 "Freedom is an essentially spiritual attribute, underlying the entire evolutionary process; this should always be remembered as a strengthening and conditioning reality by all men everywhere. It has survived aeons of opposition from the principle of enslaving selfishness and is largely responsible, at this time, for the struggle in which we are all participating."

21 "The urge-to-good pervades every aspect of the planetary Life from the smallest atom of substance, through all the intermediate living forms, on and up to the Logos Himself."

22 "The nature of the soul is relationship."

23 "From synthesis to synthesis the life of God passes. First the synthesis of the atomic lives into ever more perfect forms until the three kingdoms of nature appear [mineral, vegetable, animal]; then the synthesis in consciousness, enabling the human being to enter into the larger awareness of the Whole."

24 "Life is one and naught can ever take or touch that life."

25 "The history of evolution upon the Earth, from the angle of humanity, is one of progress, emphatic revolutionary decisions and climaxing crises. Without such a history we should not realise the progress made and the steady though gradual growth of sensitive response to environment, to contact and to impressions – mental and spiritual."
