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.

1 "It is very necessary to see life as a Whole."

2 "Man has the capacity to connect his mind with the highest unseen cosmic intelligence – the mind of Nature."

3 "Men and women have the choice as to what they will do with this power within them. Shall they exhaust it in the various self-indulgences, both mental and physical, or shall they use it to become creative in the realms of the spirit and higher mind – a force for good? It is this tremendous choice which every human being has to face."

4 "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."

5 "Enlightenment has ever poured fourth over humanity from the heart of God."

6 "The greatest things we can have – wisdom, health and power – are all-pervading and cannot be divided. They can only develop and be shared."

7 "Mankind, as well as all of Nature, is to rise out of the imperfect state, to become complete and creative, and to develop the full quota of qualities and capacities."

8 "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."

9 "Universal love…produces an understanding of all that exists in nature."

10 "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."

11 "The Creative Force within us is one single force."

12 "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."

13 "Man is said to contain within himself a facsimile of and a link with everything in the universe."

14 "The spirit in man has always been divinely alive." Alice A. Bailey, Preface

15 "Everything is…intimately connected with everything else."

16 "The Wisdom Teaching, down the ages, has come forth from God and thrown the needed light upon the ways of men. It has taken the form outwardly of the world religions, but has always presented to those whose eyes were open those esoteric truths and those clear instructions whereby man can find his own soul and his way back to the centre of life."

17 "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."

18 "The cry for world-unity, peace, brotherhood and the casting down of barriers is increasingly making itself heard."

19 "Service leads to working with others, the beginning of that Universal Brotherhood which is inevitably and actually coming into being before our eyes."

20 "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."

21 "Confucius believed in the one God over all."

22 "All of life is built upon the law of opposites, as in the negative and positive poles of electricity, day and night, heat and cold, summer and winter, good and evil. The constant friction between these opposites causes development, change, adjustment – in other words originality, or the free-will which functions throughout all creation, and through which creation itself learns eventually to become creative."

23 "Divine force embraces all and flows uninterruptedly through everything."

24 "The world appears to be made up of the energy of the Being or Mind behind it, whose idea it was!"

25 "The flame of regeneration and renaissance is burning high already, and many are the little sparks, fanned by patient souls, ready now to flare into a rich fulfillment."
