The Rays and The Initiations
Alice A. Bailey

1 "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."

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

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

4 "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)."

5 "The nature of the soul is relationship."

6 "Life is loving synthesis in action."

7 "This evolutionary pushing forward along the Lighted Way, out of darkness into light, from the unreal to the real, and from death to immortality, is an inherent urge in all forms."

8 "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."

9 "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."

10 "Freedom is an essentially spiritual attribute, underlying the entire evolutionary process; this should always be remembered as a strengthening and conditioning reality by all men everywhere. It has survived aeons of opposition from the principle of enslaving selfishness and is largely responsible, at this time, for the struggle in which we are all participating."

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

12 "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."

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

14 "All that we can contact and know is interdependent, and the unfoldment of the Life in Whom we live and move and have our being affects every aspect."

15 "The quality of spirituality is Love."

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

17 "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."

18 "Synthesis is an attribute of the divine will and the outstanding quality of Deity."

19 "There is in the last analysis but one world and one humanity."

20 "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."

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

22 "Synthesis dictates the trend of all the evolutionary processes today; all is working towards larger unified blocs, towards amalgamations, international relationships, global planning, brotherhood, economic fusion, the free flow of commodities everywhere, interdependence, fellowship of faiths, movements based upon the welfare of humanity as a whole, and ideological concepts which deal with wholes and which militate against division, separation and isolation."

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

24 "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."

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