The Rays and The Initiations
Alice A. Bailey

1 "Oneness is the major characteristic of the Universal Mind."

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

3 "Realise practically that the souls of [humanity] are one, and learn to look beyond the immediate outer seeming to the inner spiritual consciousness."

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

5 "The task of the Christ…is to establish relationships."

6 "Religion is the name given to the invocative appeal of humanity and the evocative response of the greater Life to that cry. It is, in fact, the recognition by the part of its relationship to the Whole, plus a constantly growing demand for increased awareness of that relation."

7 "The divine Mind spins the thread of connecting light and relates all beings into Itself."

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

9 "Let the OM be heard right at the center of the group, proclaiming God is All."

10 "The goal of the initiate is identification with all forms of the divine life, so that he can know himself to be an integral part of that Whole and can tune in on all states of divine awareness, knowing for himself (and not just theoretically) they they are also his own states of awareness."

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

12 "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."

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

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

15 "Divinity is all there is."

16 "The circle with the point in the centre is symbolic of the perfected man. He is rounded out; he is inclusive both vertically (soul contact) and horizontally (human relationship)."

17 "Bliss is associated with complete Being; it concerns the interior attitude of the Whole."

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

19 "All the varying aspects of the life of God are interdependent and not one proceeds onward into fuller realisation without benefiting the entire group."

20 "Progress from a dimly lighted area in the divine manifestation into one of supernal glory is the story of the Path of Evolution."

21 "The steady pulsation of the evolutionary rhythm permeates every atom, form, group and centre, producing effect upon the lowest forms of existence and on and up to the very highest; there is naught anywhere but progress and a steady moving forward into clearer light and greater livingness."

22 "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."

23 "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."

24 "In the coming new cycle the emphasis will be upon group work and activity, upon group initiation and group approach to the Center of Life."

25 "The goal of all the initiatory process is to admit mankind into realisation of and identification with the will or purpose of Deity."
