Discipleship in the New Age
Alice A. Bailey

1 "All to me are one."

2 "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."

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

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

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

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

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

8 "We live in a veritable sea of moving forces, qualified in countless ways, conditioned by countless minds….yet all of them perforce finding place in the mind content of the One in Whom we live and move and have our being."

9 "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."

10 "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?"

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

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

13 "Work with symbols will be found of real value if you persevere. I would give you a hint about them which your intuition will reveal. Where the converging lines of any symbol meet and where the many lines cross there is a point of force and of illumination, a focussed centre through which the illumined mind can pierce. Ponder on this."

14 "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.

15 "Whether I am on the burning ground or on the mountain top, whether I am silent in the secret place or surrounded by the surging crowds of humanity, it matters not. The lessons of divine indifference, once mastered, release the soul to union with the One."

16 "Love is the substance of our living in the world. Love is the light and the light of freedom for all creatures; Love pulses through the universe in a divine rhythm. Love is the consciousness of God."

17 "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."

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

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

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

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

22 "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."

23 "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."

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

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."
