A Treatise on Cosmic Fire
Alice A. Bailey
This is a detailed scheme of cosmology, philosophy and psychology which elucidates the relation between Spirit and Matter, demonstrating as Consciousness. It shows the coherent development of the all within the One.

1 "Magnetism governs the synthesis of the many aspects into a form of unity."

2 "The oneness of the tiniest unit with the one great informing Life shows the integral beauty of the scheme. The life of the greatest cosmic Lord of Love pulsates in infinitesimal degree in the heart of His tiniest reflection, and for this reason the atom man can likewise say, 'I too am God; His Life is mine."

3 "All that can be known is but forms ensouled by ideas."

4 "Naught in time and space can hinder, for every form being simply an expression of energised life, tends to serve every other form."

5 "This Law of Correspondences or of Analogy is the interpretive law of the system, and explains God to humanity."

6 "He who knows himself, in objective manifestation, essential quality, and comprehensive development, knows likewise the Lord."

7 "Man is in fact a fragment of the Universal Mind, or world soul, and as a fragment is thus partaker of the instincts and quality of that soul, as it manifests through the human family."

8 "It is the Law of Love that holds all together, and that draws all upward."

9 "Millions of infinitesimal cells, each embodying a life, each in a condition of constant activity, and each repulsing other cells so as to preserve individuality or identity, yet each held to each by a central attractive force. Thus…the objective form of a crystal, a vegetable, an animal, a man, a planet, a system."

10 "The materialization of a form originates upon the archetypal planes, through the agency of divine thought, and from thence (through directed streams of intelligent energy) acquires substance as it is reproduced upon each plane, until eventually, upon the physical plane, the form stands revealed at its densest point of manifestation."

11 "People should remember that through the power of their thoughts and their spoken words they definitely produce effects upon other human beings…and upon the entire animal kingdom."

12 "Growth and development in one part of the body produces a corresponding advance in the whole. No one can make definite progress without his brother benefiting, - this benefiting taking the form of: the increase of the total consciousness of the group; the stimulation of units in the group; and the group magnetism producing increased healing or blending effects upon allied groups."

13 "Wherever we see the one we should recognise the many also, and conversely."

14 "Humanity is evolving the inner vision and must learn to see…Humanity is innately Love, the Force which produces coherency."

15 "The truth must ever be borne in mind that no human atom arrives at 'fullness of life' without adding much to the general nature of his own group. The elevation of a unit results in the raising of the group."

16 "The densest form of expression on the physical plane is after all but a form of synthesis; just as the rarest form of expression on the highest plane is but unity or synthesis of a finer kind."

17 "The One embraces all, and carries all from great activity into the heart of cosmic peace."

18 "'Consciousness' in its true connotation is the 'One who knows'.

19 "The magnetic force, the life of the Logos, gathers together His body of manifestation."

20 "It is the harmony of the individual with himself and with his environing units, and his realisation of the essential oneness of all life which brings about the great expansions of consciousness and leads to individual identification with some greater whole."

21 "Mind is the pivot of the human structure, or the centre on which the spititual and material parts of man are made to turn."

22 "No one who strives for mastery, who struggles to attain, and who aims at expansion of consciousness but is having some effect – in ever widening spirals – upon all whom he contacts."

23 "Love is the right apprehension of the uses and purposes of form."

24 "Soul is an aspect of every form of life from a Logos to an atom….Brotherhood is a fact in nature, not an ideal."

25 "Humanity has to bring into conscious full control, the God within."
