The Rays and The Initiations
Alice A. Bailey

1 "The goal of the initiate is identification with all forms of the divine life, so that he can know himself to be an integral part of that Whole and can tune in on all states of divine awareness, knowing for himself (and not just theoretically) they they are also his own states of awareness."

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

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

4 "The divine Mind spins the thread of connecting light and relates all beings into Itself."

5 "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."

6 "All basic and fundamental changes taking place upon the physical plane are necessarily the result of inner subjective causes, emanating from the divine consciousness."

7 "This evolutionary pushing forward along the Lighted Way, out of darkness into light, from the unreal to the real, and from death to immortality, is an inherent urge in all forms."

8 "God is mind. God is intelligent functioning. God is creative activity….God is relationship. God is consciousness."

9 "The goal of all the initiatory process is to admit mankind into realisation of and identification with the will or purpose of Deity."

10 "The unfoldment of the love nature is that which opens the door which leads to the Way of the Higher Evolution and nothing else will open it."

11 "Pentecost…signifies the universal dissemination of the Christ consciousness throughout all time in the heart of every human being."

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

13 "The task of the Christ…is to establish relationships."

14 "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."

15 "Synthesis dictates the trend of all the evolutionary processes today; all is working towards larger unified blocs, towards amalgamations, international relationships, global planning, brotherhood, economic fusion, the free flow of commodities everywhere, interdependence, fellowship of faiths, movements based upon the welfare of humanity as a whole, and ideological concepts which deal with wholes and which militate against division, separation and isolation."

16 "Age by age the thinking capacity of man and his creative imagination have wrought out the slowly unfolding design, and will continue to do so."

17 "The freedom of the human spirit, the freedom to think, govern and worship as innate, instinctual human desire may dictate, under the influence of the evolutionary process, the liberty to decide on the required form of government or of religion – these are the rightful prerogatives of mankind."

18 "The nature of the soul is relationship."

19 "The nature of the One must be grasped and comprehended."

20 "The future progress of humanity is aided and hastened because of the attainment and activity of the Christ."

21 "The will-to-good is essentially the will of God."

22 "Love, in a mysterious way, is the principle found at the heart of every atom."

23 "Divinity is the expression of the will or purpose of the One in Whom we live and move and have our being."

24 "Humanity is today on the verge of major awakening and joint registration of a unity not hitherto reached; the growth of the spirit of internationalism, the inclusiveness of the scientific attitude, and the spread of a universal humanitarian welfare movement are all indicative of this meeting place."

25 "Behind all the successive revelations of divinity down the ages is to found one significant purpose; all of them are and will prove themselves to be aspects of the Great Revelation."
