The Rays and The Initiations
Alice A. Bailey

1 "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)."

2 "There is no death. There is only progress from glory to glory, a moving forward from point to point on the divine Way, and from revelation to revelation towards those points and revelations which are part of the Goal of God."

3 "Law, Love, Union or Synthesis – all these great energies have seeped into the human consciousness and now provide the platform upon which the new civilisation can be founded, the new approach to God be taken, and new human relations be implemented."

4 "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."

5 "Pentecost…signifies the universal dissemination of the Christ consciousness throughout all time in the heart of every human being."

6 "Divinity is the expression of the will or purpose of the One in Whom we live and move and have our being."

7 "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."

8 "Life is loving synthesis in action."

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

10 "From synthesis to synthesis the life of God passes. First the synthesis of the atomic lives into ever more perfect forms until the three kingdoms of nature appear [mineral, vegetable, animal]; then the synthesis in consciousness, enabling the human being to enter into the larger awareness of the Whole."

11 "Number gives the clue to the form and purpose of the life which the form veils."

12 "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."

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

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

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

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

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

18 "The divine creative Plan is motivated by love and intelligently carried forward."

19 "Age by age the thinking capacity of man and his creative imagination have wrought out the slowly unfolding design, and will continue to do so."

20 "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."

21 "The urge-to-good pervades every aspect of the planetary Life from the smallest atom of substance, through all the intermediate living forms, on and up to the Logos Himself."

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

23 "Divinity is all there is."

24 "The will is a penetrating power which relates Plan to Purpose and which has in it the faculty of coherent persistence. The reason for this persistence is that it is not dependent upon the content of the form – whether it is the form of an atom, of a man or of a planet – but upon a vital dynamic and immutable purpose, latent in the consciousness of the Being Who 'having pervaded this entire universe with a fragment' of Himself, remains – greater…and firmer in intent than any of His creations, even the most advanced."

25 "Individual purpose must be identified with group purpose which is as much of the purpose of the Whole or the One Life as the little life can grasp at any given point in time and space."
