Discipleship in the New Age
Alice A. Bailey

1 "Intense dynamic interest in the theme of the moment, free from fanaticism and boundaries, realising that – rightly handled – all themes are of spiritual moment."

2 "I saw all forms gathered within the Form of God. Thus one great Form appeared."

3 "The major liberating force in life is Love."

4 "Ponder on joy, happiness and bliss; these release the channels of the inner life and reach – in a wide circle – many kinds of people."

5 "The will-to-good is the basic quality of divine purpose, involving planned activity and a definite goal to be achieved."

6 "Pessimism is related to an unjust appraisement of the quality of humanity."

7 "Every crisis met and rightly handled provides…the place from which an extended vision can be gained, fresh knowledge can flow in and the transmuting light can shine from the Angel of the Presence and thus produce results."

8 "I am a messenger of Light. I am a pilgrim on the way of love. I do not walk alone but know myself as one with all souls, and one with them in service. Their strength is mine. This strength I claim. My strength is theirs and this I freely give. A soul, I walk on earth. I represent the ONE."

9 "Love is the wielding of the force which guides the worlds and which leads to the integration, unity and inclusiveness which impels Deity itself to action."

10 "Laws are only the unalterable conditions brought about by the activity, the orientation and the emanated decisive thoughts of the One in Whom we live and move and have our being, just as the activitis, the orientation and the thinking of a human being carry the cells and the atoms of his body along the line of his wishes."

11 "When the Plan is sensed, there comes the realisation of the unity of all beings, of the synthesis of world evolution and of the unity of the divine objective. All life and all forms are seen then in their true perspective; a right sense of values and of time then eventuates."

12 "Love is the cause of all creation and the sustaining factor in all living."

13 "Give to each other real love in the times that lie ahead, for it is the fusing and illuminating element in the life of the disciple. Let not your love remain theoretical, but give that true understanding which ignores mistakes, recognises no barriers, refuses all separating thoughts, and surrounds each other with that protecting wall of love that meets all need wherever possible – physical, emotional and mental.

14 "The Law states that we grow through the medium of our recognitions. A recognition, when it is seen as an aspect or fractional part of a greater whole, is the seed of a major expansion of consciousness."

15 "Groups are forming now in their thousands and are to be found in every land, and they will eventually blend and fuse together into one great movement of goodwill, which is spirit in actual expression."

16 "The beauty of the human heart has manifested itself down the ages."

17 "There is One Flame but many sparks of differing brightness within that Flame. Such is the glory of the great Eternal One."

18 "See to it that you are not drawn into the vortex of fears and of pessimism which surrounds so many people these days."

19 "One's spiritual influence can be lasting and can carry with it releasing power to those we love."

20 "There is in reality no separation or duality, no I, or Thou, but simply a God in manifestation, Whose nature is Light."

21 "Joy is the quality which grows out of self-realisation….We are told that there is an archetype, a pattern, a way, a goal, and a light which shines upon the Path. But, realising this, do I know anything of the joy which should irradiate my way?"

22 "The closer one gets to realisation, the clearer becomes the concept that the point at the centre and the periphery are one."

23 "The nature of the soul is love and the will-to-good."

24 "The true way to love is to reflect and meditate deeply and constantly upon the significance and the meaning of love, its origin, its expression through the soul, its qualities, goals and objectives."

25 "Love induces that radiation which invokes and evokes not only the heart of God but the heart of humanity also. Love is the cause of all creation and the sustaining factor in all living."
