The Rays and The Initiations
Alice A. Bailey

1 "Divinity is all there is."

2 "The nature of the soul is relationship."

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

4 "The freedom of the human spirit, the freedom to think, govern and worship as innate, instinctual human desire may dictate, under the influence of the evolutionary process, the liberty to decide on the required form of government or of religion – these are the rightful prerogatives of mankind."

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

6 "Pentecost…signifies the universal dissemination of the Christ consciousness throughout all time in the heart of every human being."

7 "Law, Love, Union or Synthesis – all these great energies have seeped into the human consciousness and now provide the platform upon which the new civilisation can be founded, the new approach to God be taken, and new human relations be implemented."

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

9 "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)."

10 "There is no death. There is only progress from glory to glory, a moving forward from point to point on the divine Way, and from revelation to revelation towards those points and revelations which are part of the Goal of God."

11 "We are equally and essentially…expressions of the Monad, the One."

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

13 "Divinity is the expression of the will or purpose of the One in Whom we live and move and have our being."

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

15 "Evil is after all only an impelling sense of difference, leading inevitably to separative action."

16 "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."

17 "The history of evolution upon the Earth, from the angle of humanity, is one of progress, emphatic revolutionary decisions and climaxing crises. Without such a history we should not realise the progress made and the steady though gradual growth of sensitive response to environment, to contact and to impressions – mental and spiritual."

18 "Coherency, affecting lives, forms and substances, is an expression of will and purpose, motivated by love and implemented intelligently in carrying forward the plans through which the Purpose seeks expression."

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

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

21 "The principle of freedom is a leavening energy which can permeate substance in a unique manner;….This principle of freedom is one of the attributes of Deity (like will, love and mind)."

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

23 "The will is a penetrating power which relates Plan to Purpose and which has in it the faculty of coherent persistence. The reason for this persistence is that it is not dependent upon the content of the form – whether it is the form of an atom, of a man or of a planet – but upon a vital dynamic and immutable purpose, latent in the consciousness of the Being Who 'having pervaded this entire universe with a fragment' of Himself, remains – greater…and firmer in intent than any of His creations, even the most advanced."

24 "From synthesis to synthesis the life of God passes. First the synthesis of the atomic lives into ever more perfect forms until the three kingdoms of nature appear [mineral, vegetable, animal]; then the synthesis in consciousness, enabling the human being to enter into the larger awareness of the Whole."

25 "Humanity is today on the verge of major awakening and joint registration of a unity not hitherto reached; the growth of the spirit of internationalism, the inclusiveness of the scientific attitude, and the spread of a universal humanitarian welfare movement are all indicative of this meeting place."
