The Rays and The Initiations
Alice A. Bailey

1 "Evil is after all only an impelling sense of difference, leading inevitably to separative action."

2 "In the coming new cycle the emphasis will be upon group work and activity, upon group initiation and group approach to the Center of Life."

3 "There is in the last analysis but one world and one humanity."

4 "The birth hour may be long and the form may be 'in labour' for much time, but the Christ will be born and the nature of the Christ and His consciousness will permeate and colour all human affairs."

5 "Religion is the name given to the invocative appeal of humanity and the evocative response of the greater Life to that cry. It is, in fact, the recognition by the part of its relationship to the Whole, plus a constantly growing demand for increased awareness of that relation."

6 "The divine Mind spins the thread of connecting light and relates all beings into Itself."

7 "Oneness is the major characteristic of the Universal Mind."

8 "The freedom of the human spirit, the freedom to think, govern and worship as innate, instinctual human desire may dictate, under the influence of the evolutionary process, the liberty to decide on the required form of government or of religion – these are the rightful prerogatives of mankind."

9 "Behind all the successive revelations of divinity down the ages is to found one significant purpose; all of them are and will prove themselves to be aspects of the Great Revelation."

10 "Synthesis is an attribute of the divine will and the outstanding quality of Deity."

11 "The steady pulsation of the evolutionary rhythm permeates every atom, form, group and centre, producing effect upon the lowest forms of existence and on and up to the very highest; there is naught anywhere but progress and a steady moving forward into clearer light and greater livingness."

12 "All the varying aspects of the life of God are interdependent and not one proceeds onward into fuller realisation without benefiting the entire group."

13 "All that we can contact and know is interdependent, and the unfoldment of the Life in Whom we live and move and have our being affects every aspect."

14 "Progress from a dimly lighted area in the divine manifestation into one of supernal glory is the story of the Path of Evolution."

15 "The circle with the point in the centre is symbolic of the perfected man. He is rounded out; he is inclusive both vertically (soul contact) and horizontally (human relationship)."

16 "Revelation concerns Oneness and nothing else. The practical nature of this truth is only recognized when the disciple attempts to do two things: to realise it individually, and to bring the nature of planetary unity and of non-separateness to the minds and into the lives of men everywhere."

17 "The will-to-good of the world knowers is the magnetic seed of the future."

18 "The future progress of humanity is aided and hastened because of the attainment and activity of the Christ."

19 "The nature of the soul is relationship."

20 "All basic and fundamental changes taking place upon the physical plane are necessarily the result of inner subjective causes, emanating from the divine consciousness."

21 "Freedom is an essentially spiritual attribute, underlying the entire evolutionary process; this should always be remembered as a strengthening and conditioning reality by all men everywhere. It has survived aeons of opposition from the principle of enslaving selfishness and is largely responsible, at this time, for the struggle in which we are all participating."

22 "Coherency, affecting lives, forms and substances, is an expression of will and purpose, motivated by love and implemented intelligently in carrying forward the plans through which the Purpose seeks expression."

23 "The history of evolution upon the Earth, from the angle of humanity, is one of progress, emphatic revolutionary decisions and climaxing crises. Without such a history we should not realise the progress made and the steady though gradual growth of sensitive response to environment, to contact and to impressions – mental and spiritual."

24 "The principle of freedom is a leavening energy which can permeate substance in a unique manner;….This principle of freedom is one of the attributes of Deity (like will, love and mind)."

25 "The nature of the One must be grasped and comprehended."
