Discipleship in the New Age
Alice A. Bailey

1 "There is One Flame but many sparks of differing brightness within that Flame. Such is the glory of the great Eternal One."

2 "When the Plan is sensed, there comes the realisation of the unity of all beings, of the synthesis of world evolution and of the unity of the divine objective. All life and all forms are seen then in their true perspective; a right sense of values and of time then eventuates."

3 "The nature of the soul is love and the will-to-good."

4 "The closer one gets to realisation, the clearer becomes the concept that the point at the centre and the periphery are one."

5 "Love is the wielding of the force which guides the worlds and which leads to the integration, unity and inclusiveness which impels Deity itself to action."

6 "The Law states that we grow through the medium of our recognitions. A recognition, when it is seen as an aspect or fractional part of a greater whole, is the seed of a major expansion of consciousness."

7 "See to it that you are not drawn into the vortex of fears and of pessimism which surrounds so many people these days."

8 "Love is the cause of all creation and the sustaining factor in all living."

9 "I saw all forms gathered within the Form of God. Thus one great Form appeared."

10 "The will-to-good is the basic quality of divine purpose, involving planned activity and a definite goal to be achieved."

11 "In the realm of the soul there is no separation but only a free circulation of spiritual life, light and love."

12 "The beauty of the human heart has manifested itself down the ages."

13 "Laws are only the unalterable conditions brought about by the activity, the orientation and the emanated decisive thoughts of the One in Whom we live and move and have our being, just as the activitis, the orientation and the thinking of a human being carry the cells and the atoms of his body along the line of his wishes."

14 "Nothing can stop the eventual success of the Plan; it is simply a question of time."

15 "Every crisis met and rightly handled provides…the place from which an extended vision can be gained, fresh knowledge can flow in and the transmuting light can shine from the Angel of the Presence and thus produce results."

16 "Love induces that radiation which invokes and evokes not only the heart of God but the heart of humanity also. Love is the cause of all creation and the sustaining factor in all living."

17 "We live in a veritable sea of moving forces, qualified in countless ways, conditioned by countless minds….yet all of them perforce finding place in the mind content of the One in Whom we live and move and have our being."

18 "Groups are forming now in their thousands and are to be found in every land, and they will eventually blend and fuse together into one great movement of goodwill, which is spirit in actual expression."

19 "The major liberating force in life is Love."

20 "One's spiritual influence can be lasting and can carry with it releasing power to those we love."

21 "Give to each other real love in the times that lie ahead, for it is the fusing and illuminating element in the life of the disciple. Let not your love remain theoretical, but give that true understanding which ignores mistakes, recognises no barriers, refuses all separating thoughts, and surrounds each other with that protecting wall of love that meets all need wherever possible – physical, emotional and mental.

22 "Loving understanding is the truest wisdom."

23 "Love is the incentive of our aspiration on the Path; Love is the substance of our living in the world. Love is the light and the light of freedom for all creatures; Love pulses through the universe in a divine rhythm. Love is the consciousness of God."

24 "Whether I am on the burning ground or on the mountain top, whether I am silent in the secret place or surrounded by the surging crowds of humanity, it matters not. The lessons of divine indifference, once mastered, release the soul to union with the One."

25 "Ponder on joy, happiness and bliss; these release the channels of the inner life and reach – in a wide circle – many kinds of people."
