The Finding of the Third Eye Vera Stanley Alder This is a guide to attainment of awareness through the path outlined by ancient wisdom, comparing it with the discoveries of modern science.
"The spirit in man has always been divinely alive." Alice A. Bailey, Preface
"Everything in life is evolving upwards and onwards to a higher and more perfect state, having had its beginning in an uncreative, unconscious and elementary form, and growing and progressing through striving, sacrifice and struggle to a condition of creative selfconscious potent strength."
"The cry for world-unity, peace, brotherhood and the casting down of barriers is increasingly making itself heard."
"When the aspirant can grow to love his neighbours for their struggles and faults, and utterly abstain from any critical feeling, then 'will all things be added unto him.' There will be no barriers to prevent it. Like attracts like, and his own honesty and charity will inevitably draw to him as to a magnet all that is good."
"Divine force embraces all and flows uninterruptedly through everything."
"Meditation has been used throughout the ages as the means by which a person can link his brain, mind and soul together, and connect them consciously with the Universal Intelligence."
"A wonderful era may soon dawn when humanity will figuratively rub its eyes to find that blinkers and barriers of so many kinds have somehow melted away and that it has learnt to turn its back upon the illusion of Division, and seeks only to unite and fuse all people and all activities into one coherent Whole which ever becomes simpler and more complete."
"Everywhere in the world the self-same Ancient Wisdom can be traced…And everywhere in the world at present are the signs of the re-emergence of that Wisdom back into the light of day."
"Fear is something of our making, and it paralyses us and renders us stupid."
"If the pure and original root of these different [religious] beliefs can be uncovered, it will be found to be identical in most respects. In each case we will discover that the One God over all was acknowledged."
"The world appears to be made up of the energy of the Being or Mind behind it, whose idea it was!"
"The world is built up of thousands of differing rates of vibrations, all these having their origin in the One original vibration of the mind of the Creator."
"The function, action, and quality of the heart is love. Love in its broadest sense is the desire for reunion with the divine Spirit of the Creator which permeates all life."
"The Creative Force within us is one single force."
"His [Christ's] work was to transfer the possibility of attainment from the few to the many, to simplify the great Truths for the use of all humanity and to introduce the ultimate act of attainment, the awakening of the Love principle in the heart."
"Service leads to working with others, the beginning of that Universal Brotherhood which is inevitably and actually coming into being before our eyes."
"Nothing is lost, nothing is wasted, everyone finally reaches the same goal of perfection."
"Enlightenment has ever poured fourth over humanity from the heart of God."
"Everything is…intimately connected with everything else."
"Believe in the One great Divinity."
"Everyone should breathe in the divine Breath of Life with all his heart and sing his song of thanksgiving no less regularly than do the birds."
"When universal love, neighbourliness and brotherhood eventually spread across the world, East and West will learn from each other and pool their attributes."
"The greatest things we can have – wisdom, health and power – are all-pervading and cannot be divided. They can only develop and be shared."
"Love is the magnet which holds all life together. Its attraction is so strong that nothing can resist it."
"He whose aspirations are high, sincere and enduring may begin at once to achieve Godhood and acquire first-hand knowledge of the secrets of the universe."
