24 books of Alice Bailey
The information contained in 17 of her 24 books covering the ageless Wisdom was according to Miss Baileys illustrations telepathically received from a Tibetan Master Djwhal Khul who is referred to as DK. Her other books were written without telepathic input from DK.
In the books DK. states, that during November 1919 he contacted Mrs. Bailey telepathically and asked her to do some writing and publish some books. She refused because she did not believe in the so-called occult literature being published. Shortly thereafter and following another telepathic contact, she changed her mind and between 1919 and 1949 she recorded the Ageless Wisdom in her books. These books provide an interpretation of energy or ray flow, and she interpreted all aggregates of atoms, including stars, planets, and solar systems, as living entities.
Lucis Trust has put the books online, but it still claims the copyright on these books.
(A german Version of the books is also ONLINE in the Internet.)
Although her death in December 1949 prevented the completion of these books, enough of the author's life story emerges to show the stages in her journey from Christian evangelism to mastery of the science of esotericism, and her work as an author, lecturer and teacher.
The Consciousness of the Atom
In this hook the scientific relation of matter and consciousness is discussed as evolution progressively affects the atomic substance of all forms. The "atom" emerges as a miniature but complete replica of the energy structure common to all forms of life--cosmic, planetary, human and subhuman.
The Destiny of the Nations
A nation is an evolving spiritual entity, subject, as a human being is, to the impact of energies. These energies influence the national consciousness, encouraging recognition of soul destiny and cooperation with that evolving process. The spiritual destiny of many nations and their predisposing soul and personality influences are discussed in this book.
Education in the New Age
Education should be a continuous process from birth to death. It is essentially a process leading to reconciliation of the human and divine elements in the constitution of a human being. Right relationship between God and man, spirit and matter, the whole and the part, should be a prime objective of educational techniques.
The Externalisation of the Hierarchy
This book discusses the interdependence of all states of consciousness and kingdoms in nature within the planet. It shows the interaction between humanity, the Hierarchy and Shamballa, and sets out the essentials of Plan and Purpose which influence human affairs. The process of the externalisation of certain ashrams within the Hierarchy and the practical effects of the process are given in detail.
From Bethlehem to Calvary
The life experience of the Master Jesus, including the Crucifixion, the Great Renunciation, is reflected in the life experience of all human beings. we can know and consciously cooperate in the journey which leads from the place of spiritual birth to the place of renunciation and ressurection.
Discipleship in the New Age, Volumes I and II
These two volumes contain the record of a series of personal and group instructions given to a small group of aspirants over a period of fifteen years by a Master of the Wisdom. They contain detailed teachings on Meditation, Initiation and the Six Stages of Discipleship. They emphasise the new age, pioneering necessity for group work, the development of group consciousness, and the change in training for initiation from individuals to discipleship groups.
From Intellect to Intuition
The development of the intellect, while necessary, is a means to an end. The intellect should become a means of penetrating into new dimensions of thought and consciousness, and of awakening the intuitive faculty of "pure reason Through occult meditation the gap is bridged between the threefold mind and the intuition.
Glamour : A World Problem
World glamour--the sumtotal of human ignorance, fear and greed--can dissipate through the clear, inclusive thinking of those in whom the soul (Christ) principle is awakening. Glamour results from a negative emotional focus; the dissipation of glamour depends on "illumined thinking".
Initiation, Human and Solar
An initiation is an expansion of consciousness, leading to revelation and illumination. Initiation is experienced by all forms of life, great and small. The work of the planetary Hierarchy, in its many stages of Mastership, is outlined in this book, and the Fourteen Rules are given by which the neophyte may become an Applicant at the Portal of Initiation.
The Light of the Soul
This volume is an original paraphrase, with commentary, of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. T he Yoga Sutras are of ancient origin, first reduced to writing by Patanjali, who is considered the founder of the Raja Yoga School. Control of the mind and its illumination by the soul are brought about through the practice of Raja Yoga.
Letters on Occult Meditation
The science of meditation, as a mind-training technique, is increasingly practiced everywhere. Meditation is concerned with energy flow, energy which is impersonal and fiery in nature; its potential dangers should therefore be understood and avoided, and practices adopted which are safe and trustworthy. This book sets out the basic factors, general and specific, showing the overall objective of the science of meditation to be planetary service.
Problems of Humanity
Six basic world problems--the psychological rehabilitation of the nations, the children, capital and labor minorities, the churches, and international unity--with many ramifications, continue to present humanity with opportunity for progress. A perspective on these problems is shown in this book; the spiritual factors and subjective causes are related to the outer appearances and effects on the world scene.
The Reappearance of the Christ
Many religions today expect the coming of an Avatar or Saviour. The second coming of the Christ, as the world Teacher for the age of Aquarius, is presented in this book as an imminent event, logical and practical in the continuity of divine revelation throughout the ages. The Christ belongs to all mankind; he can be known and understood as "the same great Identity in all the world religions."
( Annotation : this is quite a doubtful book : The reappearance of Christ as a member of white brothership stand in contradiction to the appearance of the coming avatar, who will regarding to Miss Bailey, not be a member of this brothership. There exist other prophecies that Christ will come back seven years before the appearance of the avatar - if at all -- but here everything is twisted as to come from this brothership )
The Soul and Its Mechanism
The soul works through the mechanism of the threefold personality. The method by which the soul and the personality vehicles interact and function together is presented in this volume: and also the way the human constitution, as a whole and in its component parts, responds to the impact of an evolving consciousness.
Telepathy and the Etheric Vehicle
The scientific basis for the widely accepted ideal of the "brotherhood of man" rests on the tact of the interwoven etheric--or energy--structure underlying all forms in all kingdoms within the planet. It is this essential oneness which provides the conditions for intercommunication on all levels of consciousness, and creates the possibility of simultaneous impression in many by a stream of Plan-inspired energy.
A Treatise on Cosmic Fire
This volume deals with the underlying structure of occult teaching for the present era and with those vast cosmic processes reproduced through all areas of life from universe to atom. A large section of the book is directed to a detailed exposition of Solar Fire, the Fire of Mind, since this is the dominant energy to be understood and controlled during this second solar system. Among other values, the book provides a compact outline of a scheme of cosmology, philosophy and psychology which serves as a basic reference and text book.
A Treatise on the Seven Rays:
Esoteric Psychology, Volumes I and II
Five volumes have been written under the overall title of A Treatise on the Seven Rays, based on the fact, the nature, the quality and the interrelationship of the seven streams of energy pervading our solar system, our planet and all that lives and moves within its orbit. These two volumes go extensively into the psychological make-up of a human being as the life quality and appearance of an incarnating, evolving spiritual entity. They also relate the circumstance of a human psychology to world conditions and to future possibilities.
Esoteric Astrology, Volume III
The science of esoteric astrology is said to be the basic occult science of the future. Astrology is described in this book as "the science of relationships", a science which deals with those conditioning energies and forces which play through and upon the whole field of space and all that is found within it.
Esoteric Healing, Volume IV
Healing is an exact and an exacting science. Esoteric healing is equally scientific, based on a number of requirements, including knowledge of the constitution of man as a spiritual being and of the biology and anatomy of his physical form. In this book the seven ray techniques of healing are described; the laws and rules of healing are discussed; basic causes of disease are shown; and requirements for healing are given in detail.
The Rays and the Initiations, Volume V
The first part of this volume contains the Fourteen Rules for Group Initiation, an extension of the teachings given in Initiation, Human and Solar on the Fourteen Rules for Applicants. The second part of the book is concerned with the nine initiations by which the disciple progressively liberates himself from the various forms of our planetary life. The possibility of group initiation is a development of the present era; this volume emphasises the growth of the group idea--group service, group responsibility, group initiation and group absorption into the centre Hierarchy.
A Treatise on White Magic
This book contains the Fifteen Rules for Magic (for soul control)-the soul, the white Magician, becoming manifest through its own inherent magical" powers. The human being is essentially and inherently divine. The soul is the means whereby mankind evolves a consciousness of divinity, redeems gross matter and liberates the pure flame of spirit from the limitation of form.
