The Rays and The Initiations
Alice A. Bailey

1 "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."

2 "Humanity is today on the verge of major awakening and joint registration of a unity not hitherto reached; the growth of the spirit of internationalism, the inclusiveness of the scientific attitude, and the spread of a universal humanitarian welfare movement are all indicative of this meeting place."

3 "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."

4 "We are all the children of God; we are all equally divine; we are all on our way to the revelation of divinity."

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

6 "The task of the Christ…is to establish relationships."

7 "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."

8 "The nature of the soul is relationship."

9 "The will-to-good is essentially the will of God."

10 "Synthesis dictates the trend of all the evolutionary processes today; all is working towards larger unified blocs, towards amalgamations, international relationships, global planning, brotherhood, economic fusion, the free flow of commodities everywhere, interdependence, fellowship of faiths, movements based upon the welfare of humanity as a whole, and ideological concepts which deal with wholes and which militate against division, separation and isolation."

11 "We are equally and essentially…expressions of the Monad, the One."

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

13 "Seek those new attitudes and those new creative approaches which will result not alone in the building of the individual, but also in the fusion of the many 'radiant strands' which will produce those 'connecting cables', speaking symbolically, which will relate the planetary centres and present the medium along which can pass the fiery will and the predetermined purpose of Deity. This will bring about the reconstruction of the manifested worlds, and in this task each and every one of you can have his share."

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

15 "Realise practically that the souls of [humanity] are one, and learn to look beyond the immediate outer seeming to the inner spiritual consciousness."

16 "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."

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

18 "The goal of all the initiatory process is to admit mankind into realisation of and identification with the will or purpose of Deity."

19 "Obedience to the Plan brings revelation of the hidden Purpose."

20 "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)."

21 "God is mind. God is intelligent functioning. God is creative activity….God is relationship. God is consciousness."

22 "Bliss is associated with complete Being; it concerns the interior attitude of the Whole."

23 "We must seek to understand the sum total in the light of the part, the Macrocosm in the light of the Microcosm."

24 "Divinity is all there is."

25 "This evolutionary pushing forward along the Lighted Way, out of darkness into light, from the unreal to the real, and from death to immortality, is an inherent urge in all forms."
