The Rays and The Initiations
Alice A. Bailey

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

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

3 "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."

4 "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."

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

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

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

8 "The quality of spirituality is Love."

9 "Life is loving synthesis in action."

10 "Divinity is all there is."

11 "The future progress of humanity is aided and hastened because of the attainment and activity of the Christ."

12 "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."

13 "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."

14 "We are all the children of God; we are all equally divine; we are all on our way to the revelation of divinity."

15 "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."

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

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

18 "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."

19 "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."

20 "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."

21 "Revelation concerns Oneness and nothing else. The practical nature of this truth is only recognized when the disciple attempts to do two things: to realise it individually, and to bring the nature of planetary unity and of non-separateness to the minds and into the lives of men everywhere."

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

23 "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."

24 "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)."

25 "Life is one and naught can ever take or touch that life."
