Discipleship in the New Age
Alice A. Bailey

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

2 "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."

3 "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.

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

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

6 "All to me are one."

7 "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."

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

9 "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."

10 "Loving understanding is the truest wisdom."

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

12 "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?"

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

14 "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."

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

16 "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."

17 "Prayer of the ancient past becomes the present effort of the distant future."

18 "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."

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

20 "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."

21 "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."

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

23 "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."

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

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