A Treatise on White Magic
Alice A. Bailey

1 "True knowledge is intelligent love."

2 "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."

3 "World unity, brotherhood in its true sense, the growth of telepathic interplay, the elimination of the non-essentials which serve to separate the thoughts of men and bring about separateness on the physical plane, and the laying of a true emphasis upon the fundamentals of the Ageless Wisdom, the manifestation of a true understanding, the bringing about of at-one-ment with the soul, the recognition of those who belong to the group of world Saviours – this is the immediate work to be done."

4 "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."

5 "Through humanity, the nature of reality will be revealed; the true and the beautiful will be manifested; the divine plan will eventually work out, and that energy be transmitted to all forms in nature which will enable the inner spiritual reality to emerge."

6 "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."

7 "All forms are…externalizations of the one Infinite Being."

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

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

10 "One of the main necessities…at this time is to endeavour to think in terms of the one Reality."

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

12 "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."

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

14 "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."

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

16 "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."

17 "The heart of humanity is sound and out of the present chaos and perhaps largely because of it, there will emerge those competent to deal with the situation and adequate to the task of unification and synthesis."

18 "The One Existence has brought the phenomenal world into being."

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

20 "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."

21 "Harmlessness is the expression of the life of the man who realizes himself to be everywhere."

22 "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 "All that is forms part of the current of ideas emanating from the divine Thinker. All thoughts are part of a divine stream."

24 "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."

25 "'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."
