The Rays and The Initiations
Alice A. Bailey

1 "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."

2 "The birth hour may be long and the form may be 'in labour' for much time, but the Christ will be born and the nature of the Christ and His consciousness will permeate and colour all human affairs."

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

4 "The circle with the point in the centre is symbolic of the perfected man. He is rounded out; he is inclusive both vertically (soul contact) and horizontally (human relationship)."

5 "Let the OM be heard right at the center of the group, proclaiming God is All."

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

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

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

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

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

11 "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."

12 "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."

13 "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."

14 "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)."

15 "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."

16 "Realise practically that the souls of [humanity] are one, and learn to look beyond the immediate outer seeming to the inner spiritual consciousness."

17 "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."

18 "Obedience to the Plan brings revelation of the hidden Purpose."

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

20 "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."

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 "All that we can contact and know is interdependent, and the unfoldment of the Life in Whom we live and move and have our being affects every aspect."

23 "The divine creative Plan is motivated by love and intelligently carried forward."

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

25 "Religion is the name given to the invocative appeal of humanity and the evocative response of the greater Life to that cry. It is, in fact, the recognition by the part of its relationship to the Whole, plus a constantly growing demand for increased awareness of that relation."
