A Treatise on White Magic
Alice A. Bailey

1 "Duality is only a stage on the evolutionary arc, leading eventually to the realisation of unity."

2 "The energy of thought is for the good of all and for the furtherance of the Plan of God."

3 "The law of the universe is the law of love."

4 "The individual mind is an integral part of the Universal Mind."

5 "Love breaks down every barrier, and fuses diverse groups in union….Love gathers all to itself, and carries all on with itself, welding separated units into a unified homogeneous whole."

6 "The Hindus say very beautifully that 'the Great Singer built the worlds, and the Universe is His Song."

7 "Intuitional illumination is the present goal of consciousness."

8 "See to it that you deal with patience and forbearance with those of your brothers who…sacrifice the good of the group for their own personal ends or who use unworthy methods. Give to them love and care and a ready helping hand, for they will stumble on the way and sound the depth of the law. Stand ready then to lift them up and to offer to them opportunities for service, knowing that service is the great healer and teacher."

9 "Krishna…laid down in the 'Gita' the simple rules whereby depression and doubt can be overcome. They may be briefly summarised as follows: a. Know thyself to be the undying One. b. Control thy mind, for through that mind the undying One can be known. c. Learn that the form is but the veil which hides the splendour of Divinity. d. Realize that the One Life pervades all forms so that there is no death, no distress, no separation."

10 "A gradual and steady growth in group consciousness and responsibility, a submergence of the wishes of the personal self and the manifestation of a loving spirit characterise those who are oriented towards the divine whole."

11 "All leads back to the idea of unity, and of the Oneness of all manifestation."

12 "If men carried the concept of brotherhood with all its implications into the life and work of every day, whether between the capitalist and the labourer, the politician and the people, between nation and nation, or between race and race, there would emerge that peace on earth which nothing could upset or overturn."

13 "May the Power of the one Life pour through the group of all true servers. May the Love of the One Soul characterize the lives of all who seek to aid the Great Ones. May I fulfill my part in the One work through self-forgetfulness, harmlessness and right speech."

14 "True knowledge is intelligent love."

15 "The Delphic injunction 'Man, know thyself' was an inspired utterance, intended to give man the clue to the mystery of deity."

16 "God breathes and His pulsating life emanates from the divine heart and manifests as the vital energy of all forms."

17 "All grades of matter meet in man, and all the states of consciousness are possible to him. Mankind can work in all directions and lift the subhuman kingdoms into heaven and bring heaven down to earth."

18 "That the inner vision may be ours, the eye see clearly the glory of the Lord, and the voice speak only in benediction, and the hands be used only in helpfulness, may well be the prayer of each of us."

19 "In the thoughts of purity, dedication, love and service, are summed up the nature and the destiny of man."

20 "The love of God is that free flowing, outgoing, magnetically attractive force which leads each pilgrim home to the Father's House. It is that force which stirs in the heart of humanity and finds expression through the medium of world avatars, through the mystical yearning found in every human being, through all movements that have for their objective the welfare of humanity."

21 "Study your daily conduct and words and thoughts so as to make them utterly harmless. Set yourself to think those thoughts about yourself and others which will be constructive and positive, and hence harmless in their effects."

22 "'God is One' is the utterance of truth. One life pervades all forms and those forms are the expressions, in time and space, of the central universal energy."

23 "We need to realize more deeply that the whole process is a divine one, and that evil, so called, is but an illusion and an inherent part of duality, giving place in time and out of time to a divine reality. Evil is due to wrong perception and erroneous interpretation of that which is perceived."

24 "In love of all that breathes comes capacity to vibrate universally."

25 "Just as the varied organs of the human body are inter-related by the nervous system, so within the body of the planet are the various kingdoms in nature and the multiplicity of forms. Back of the objective universe is the subtler sensitive body – one organism, not many, one sentient, responsive, connected form."
