A Treatise on White Magic
Alice A. Bailey

Realize that the One Life pervades all forms so that there is no death, no distress, no separation."

16 "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."

23 "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.
