A Treatise on White Magic
Alice A. Bailey

1 "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.

Stand ready then to lift them up and to offer to them opportunities for service, knowing that service is the great healer and teacher."
