486 – 877: “Still another type of thought-form comes forth, – the most prevalent and the one that causes the most trouble. These are the facts of information, the detailed material, the news (if so you like to call it), the basis of what may degenerate into gossip, … How shall you prevent your mind from transmitting to another facts such as these? … it may be true, some sad or evil occurrence or deed of some mistaken brother. What then is there to do? Truth can-not be devitalised or disintegrated. The Law of Absorption will aid you here. Into your heart you absorb the thought-form you encounter and there transmute it by the alchemy of love. Let me be practical and illustrate, for the matter is of importance. …

You add not to the talk, you do not hand on the information, as far as you are concerned the thought-form, built around the fact, has wandered into what you call a cul-de-sac.
What do you then? You build a counter stream of thoughts which (on a wave of love) you send your apparently erring brother: thoughts of kindly assistance, of courage and aspiration, and of a wise application of the lessons to be learnt from the deed he has accomplished. Use not force …”

ALICE A. BAILEY: Discipleship in the New Age II, page
693 – 696: The law is described over these pages, but here are a few statements:
“This is a law which is ever present in the world in relation to the processes of death. The as-pect of its importance in connection with physical death is deemed of slight importance in com-parison to its emphasis in connection with the world of thought. The training given to a disciple when he enters the periphery of an Ashram lays an emphatic emphasis upon the need of ab-stracting one’s consciousness from phase after phase of thought. …

When the Law of Abstraction is wielded consciously by you from within the Ashram, you will discover that it has (as it might have been expected) various meanings and policies which will function on the different planes of consciousness …

There is a close relation between pain and the law with which I am dealing. It is the Law of Ab-straction which lifts a disciple out of the three worlds of human endeavour; it is this same law which brings about the upward drive which all units of life express and the search of all of them for identification with the ONE. …”

ALICE A. BAILEY: Discipleship in the New Age I, page
440: “Of all the members in your particular group, you are perhaps the freest from any serious glamour and the one which (almost necessarily and protectively) controls you is the glamour of physical disability. …

Will you so stand, my brother? Will you cease from the constant urging desire to be of great-er outer usefulness? The Law of Acceptance is a divine law and releases from glamour, freeing the soul for the reality of service. I stand by you at all times.”

ALICE A. BAILEY: White Magic, page
470: “Every form is built by an impulsive spark of life, emanated by a creator, and growing stage by stage under the law of accretion – an aspect of the law of attraction, which is the law of life. This law cooperates with the Law of Cause and Effect, which, as we know, is the law governing matter. Cause, attraction or desire, accretion and effect – these four words govern the construction of any thought-form. When the latter is a completed entity, it is an effect built by accretion under the power of an organized cause.”

Action and Reaction
ALICE A. BAILEY: Cosmic Fire, page
292: “He [Solar Logos] has to attain to the consciousness of the cosmic Logos within Whose body He is a centre. He must find by experience His place within the cosmic group of which He is a part, in much the same way as a planetary Logos pursues a similar course. This is achieved when all the Heavenly Men or each of the seven centres are awakened and functioning con-sciously and freely, with their systemic inter-relation adjusted and controlled by the Law of Ac-tion and Reaction.

ALICE A. BAILEY: The Externalisation of the Hierarchy
My comment: Page numbers are not available in this work, section III – IV
?: “Then the door of possibility opens. We can come then to the realisation that in times of in-tense human urgency, stress and crisis and when the soul of man is adequately aroused to the needed point of spiritual receptivity (as was ever the case with Christ) then there can likewise come a divine recognition from the highest possible source which will suffice to bring release and liberation and to give power – power to do the right, to take those steps which are de-manded by the spiritual purpose and to proceed, consequently, along the path of evolution.
Let me here point out that where this is a group activity upon the physical plane there is – under the Law of Balance and of Action and Reaction – a paralleling spiritual activity.”

?: “I have said also that the Forces of Light are nearing the Earth and that the Hierarchy is coming steadily closer to mankind.

These basic events, these subjective happenings and these spiritual determinations – under the Law of Action and Reaction – have evoked a more rapid response from the Forces of Evil (pre-sent in our planetary life) than from humanity.”

ALICE A. BAILEY: The Reappearance of the Christ
74: “This Spirit of Peace is not the sum total of an emotional and static calm, bringing to an end the turmoil on the Earth and instituting an era of peace. He is, in a mysterious sense, the Spirit of Equilibrium; He works with the Law of Action and Reaction and the inevitability of His activity will be recognised. His work will demonstrate in two ways – fully when the Christ appears among men and slowly and gradually until that time: …”

ALICE A. BAILEY: White Magic, page
322: “We must remember that every aspirant is a focal point of energy and should be, in his place, a conscious focal point. In the midst of the whirl and storm he should make his presence felt. The Law of action and re-action works here, and often the Great Ones (foreseeing the need of just such points of inner contact in periods of world unrest, such as the present) gather into certain localities those who are aspirants to service. They act as a balance and aid the general plan, and at the same time they themselves learn much needed lessons.”

5: “I would here briefly speak to you anent karma, for it is a concept very little understood, and therefore the cause of much confusion. Karma is a term given to cover the Law of Action and Re action. Every act must produce its re action and there you have it. Even that which I have termed incorrect experi¬mentation produces karma, but it will be of an impersonal nature and therefore require somewhat different healing meth¬ods. The disciple must find the karmic cause responsible for the manifesting condition if he is to be of any real service to the brother in need. He must know the nature of the karma and the lesson to be learned thereby.”

Action – subsidiary laws
ANNIE BESANT: Discipleship and some Karmic Problems
“There are three subsidiary laws under the general Law of action: (1) That thought is the power that builds up character; as you think, you will become. (2) That the force which we call desire, or will, (two forms of the same force) draws together you and the thing you desire. (3) That the effect of your conduct upon others, causing them happiness or misery, brings you happi-ness or misery in return. If a man understands these three laws and knows how to apply them, he becomes master of his own future, maker of his own destiny.”

Active Precipitation
ALICE A. BAILEY: White Magic, page
278: “In all form-building the technique of construction remains basically the same, and the rules and realizations may be summed up in the following aphoristic phrases. …

Let these three laws hold sway, the law of synthetic limitation, of vibratory interplay, and of active precipitation. The one concerns the life, the second concerns the building, and the third produces manifested existence.”

Adaptation – Subsidiary Law of the Law of Economy
ALICE A. BAILEY: Cosmic Fire, page
45 – 46: “This fire [the fire of microcosm] is the basic vibration of the little system in which the monad or human spirit is the logos, and it holds the personality or lower material man in objec-tive manifestation thus permitting the spiritual unit to contact the plane of densest matter. It has its correspondence in the ray of intelligent activity and is controlled by the Law of Economy in one of its subdivisions, the Law of Adaptation in Time.”
142 – 43: “This Law of Economy might be considered as the controlling factor in the life of the third Logos. Therefore:
a. His goal is the perfect blending of Spirit and matter.
b. His function is the manipulation of prakriti, or matter, so as to make it fit, or equal to, the demands and needs of the Spirit.
c. His mode of action is rotary, or, by the revolution of matter, to increase activity and thereby make the material more pliable.
All these three concepts are governed by the Law of Economy, which is the Law of Adaptation in time and space, or the line of least resistance.”
219: “The subsidiary laws under the Law of Economy are four in number, dealing with the low-er quaternary: …
2. The Law of Adaptation is the law governing the rotary movement of any atom on every plane and subplane.”

ALICE A. BAILEY: Esoteric Astrology, page
266: “The energies of the various signs are attracted by the different planets according to their stage of development and by what is esoterically called “ancient relationship” between the in-forming entities of the planets and of the constellations. This relation exists between beings and is founded on a Law of Affinity. It is this law of affinity which produces the magnetic pull and the dynamic response between constellations and planets within the solar system and between some particular planet and the forms of life upon another planet and the “impending energies,” as they are called, which are being received from some major source. The capacity to receive and profit by the planetary energies (themselves received as emanated from some constella-tion) is dependent upon the point in evolution which determines the receptivity and the respon-siveness of the mechanism of reception. This constitutes an unalterable law and accounts for the power of certain planets which may have hitherto remained undiscovered and which have therefore had little to do with evolution up to the present, owing to the unresponsiveness of the forms of reception.”

ALICE A. BAILEY: Cosmic Fire, page
8: “This Law of Correspondences or of Analogy is the interpretive law of the system, and ex-plains God to man.”

245: In Section Two, Introductory Questions, there is a whole paragraph dealing with the question: Is there a direct analogy between a system, a planet, a man and an atom? The par-agraph is therefore in effect a review of how the law of analogy is applied.

628: “The key to comprehension is always this law [the Law of Analogy]”

ALICE A. BAILEY: Rays and The Initiations, page
217: “It is by adhering to the ancient dictum that “as it is with the Macrocosm so will it be with the microcosm,” and by the application, therefore, of the Law of Analogy, that we shall eventu-ally arrive at understanding.”

661: “The world crises, which ever precede initiation on a planetary scale, are part of the pre-paratory work, tests and trials which make possible some cosmic initiation to which He has been and will eventually be subjected. With them we have no concern, nor would you understand if I were to be in any way explicit. The Law of Analogy and of Correspondences breaks down at a certain point upon the path of understanding, and something new and utterly different enters in. The Law of Analogy holds good when considering the microcosm within the life of the Mac-rocosm, but if you ventured outside that limited and manifested Life (if that were possible, which it is not) you would contact other Laws and other approaches to truth, existent on cosmic levels.”

ALICE A. BAILEY: White Magic, page
18: ”One of the main means whereby man arrives at an understanding of that great sum total we call the Macrocosm – God, functioning through a solar system – is by an understanding of himself, and the Delphic injunction “Man, know thyself” was an inspired utterance, intended to give man the clue to the mystery of deity. Through the Law of Analogy, or correspondences, the cosmic processes, and the nature of the cosmic principles are indicated in the functions, structure, and characteristics of a human being. They are indicated but not explained or elabo-rated. They serve simply as sign posts, directing man along the path whereon future sign posts may be found and more definite indications noted.

ALICE A. BAILEY: Initiation, Human and Solar, page
6 – 7: “We must resign ourselves to the fact that the only way in which we can find the clue to the mystery of the rays, systems, and hierarchies, lies in the study of the law of correspond-ences or analogy. …
In the study of this Law we need to remember that the correspondence lies in its essence, and not in the exoteric working out of detail as we think we see it from our present standpoint. The factor of time leads us astray for one thing; we err when we attempt to fix stated times or limits; all in evolution progresses through merging, with a constant process of overlapping and mingling. Only broad generalities and a recognition of fundamental points of analogy are possi-ble to the average student. The moment he attempts to reduce to chart form and to tabu-late in detail, he enters realms where he is bound to err, and staggers through a fog that will ultimately overwhelm him.
Nevertheless, in the scientific study of this law of analogy will come a gradual growth of knowledge, and in the slow accumulation of facts will gradually be built up an ever-expanding form, that will embody much of the truth.”

Ancient Law of Evil Sharing – Ancient Dominating Good
ALICE A. BAILEY: Esoteric Healing, page
543: “LAW II. Disease is the product of and subject to three influences: first, a man’s past, wherein he pays the price of ancient error; second, his inheritance, wherein he shares with all mankind those tainted streams of energy which are of group origin; third, he shares with all natural forms that which the Lord of Life imposes on His body. These three influences are called the “Ancient Law of Evil Sharing.” This must give place some day to the new “Law of An-cient Dominating Good” which lies behind all that God has made. This law must be brought into activity by the spiritual will of man.”

ALICE A. BAILEY: Education in the New Age
134: “As the intelligence of the race is developed (and that is going on apace), as the Laws of Rhythm and Approach are grasped, it will then be found that there are certain innate reactions which will negate conception, and that then the mechanical means will no longer be required.”

Ashramic Growth
LUCILLE CEDERCRANS: Ashramic Projections, Chapter 4, page
52: “This dependence upon the growth and development of those karmically related to you, service-wise, is one of the basic laws of ashramic growth. For instance, a Master cannot take initiation himself (and you realize of course that the path of initiation does not end with mas-ters) until he has achieved for his Ashramic Group Life the goal of spiritual growth and devel-opment. Thus, while your growth and development as an individual proceeds on an individual basis until you pierce the periphery of an Ashram, it is nonetheless forsaken (sacrificed) the moment you pierce that periphery and enter into your particular service activity, so that your individual growth and development is dependent upon the growth with which you are related in service. …
Those whom you have attracted to you as students, those whom you have attracted to you because you are able to be of service to them: Your growth and development is de¬pendent up-on their growth and development.”

ALICE A. BAILEY: Discipleship in the New Age II, page
402: “That which is rejected and which is occultly thrown out as no longer serving the purpose of the planetary Logos is replaced by that which “will measure up to the purpose of the Father.” It is this concept which has been travestied and distorted by the Christian teaching anent the “vicarious atonement.” This grew out of a basic confusion between the Law of Sacrifice and the Law of Assembly, and took place when any understanding of the nature of the Father remained a supreme mystery; the whole process was then interpreted in terms of the first and highest Aspect of the essential Trinity, of which man knew nothing, instead of in terms of the second Aspect, the building, magnetic aspect of Love.”

403: “The process in which the initiate is now permitted to share during and after the fourth Initiation of Renunciation (which is presented to him in a successive series of points of revela-tion) is made possible by his submission to the Law of Sacrifice. This, in its turn, brings his con-sciousness under the influence – in developing stages – of the Law of Assembly. This is a law to which I have not yet made reference in any of my previous instructions. The initiate can now – through appreciated and comprehended revelation – add to his work with the Plan and its build-ing technique, a capacity to work with divine Purpose and with those substances (etheric in na-ture) and those energies which permeate the cosmic etheric body (the four higher planes of our cosmic physical plane) under a law which is set in motion by the Father, but which makes the building activity of the Son possible, so that it is utterly in line with divine Purpose.”

Attraction and Repulsion – Cosmic Law, Second Aspect
ALICE A. BAILEY: Cosmic Fire, page
40: “The Ray of intelligent love. This is the ray which embodies the highest vibration of which our solar Logos or Deity is capable in this present solar system. It is not yet vibrating adequate-ly nor has it yet attained the peak of its activity. It is the basis of the cyclic spiral movement of the body logoic, and just as the Law of Economy is the law governing the internal fires of the system so the cosmic Law of Attraction and Repulsion is the basic law of this divine Ray.”

274: “2. Repetition of Cyclic Action is Governed by Two Laws: Perhaps it is more accurate to say that it is governed by one law, primarily, and a subsidiary law. …
The general law, which produces cyclic effect, is the Law of Attraction and Repulsion, of which the subsidiary law is the Law of Periodicity, and of Rebirth.”

568: “Three Cosmic Laws. …
The second law is the Law of Attraction and Repulsion. Fundamentally, the law describes the compelling force of attraction that holds our solar system to the Sirian; that holds our planets revolving around our central unit, the sun; that holds the lesser systems of atomic and molecu-lar matter circulating around a centre in the planet; and that holds the matter of all physical plane bodies, and that of the subtle bodies co-ordinated around their microcosmic centre.”
1182: “Students may find it of use to remember that,
a. The Law of Economy demonstrates as an urge,
b. The Law of Attraction as a pull,
c. The Law of Synthesis as a tendency to concentrate at a centre, or to merge.”

ALICE A. BAILEY: Rays and The Initiations, page
248: “In this earlier rule, the disciple is told that before he can advance to the mysteries which will be revealed to him sequentially as he advances along the Path of Initiation, there are four things which he must “learn and comprehend.” These are: …
2. He must study the five meanings of magnetisation. This refers to the five modes in which the Law of Magnetisation works; this is another name for the Law of Attraction.”

375: “There is still another point upon which I would like to touch. Owing to the fact that the Law which governs the Hierarchy is the second systemic law, the Law of Attraction, students are apt to think that magnetism is a second ray quality. … Nevertheless, magnetic action is more closely allied to first ray functioning than it is to the second ray, and is an aspect or quali-ty of the Law of Synthesis.”

397: “Remember also that all the seven rays are the subrays of the great cosmic Ray of Love-Wisdom, which is ever expressive of relationship, implemented under the Law of Attraction.”

399: “Upon the cosmic astral plane there is no glamour, but instead a great vortex of energy – the energy of pure love – under the domination of the Law of Attraction.”

404: “Constantly, therefore, this great circulatory process goes on, demonstrating anew the essential synthesis underlying all life – human, planetary, systemic and cosmic; it reveals also that the Law of Attraction, the Law of Magnetic Work, and the cosmic Law of Synthesis are three aspects of one Law for which, as yet, we have no name.”

ALICE A. BAILEY: Letters on Occult Meditation, page
57: “When the Personality finds for itself (after lives of stress and search) its spiritual note with the right key and subtone, what is the result? It accords with its monadic note, it vibrates to the same measure, it pulsates with the same colour, the line of least resistance is at last found, and the indwelling life is liberated and returns to its own plane. But this work of discovery is very slow and the man has to pick out the chord with infinite care and pains. First, he finds out the third of the Personality and sounds that forth, the result being an ordered harmonious life in the three worlds. Then he finds the dominant fifth of the Ego, the keynote of the chord, and sounds that in unison with the Personality note. The result is that a vacuum is formed (if I may so express it) and the liberated man with his informing soul, – the threefold spirit, plus mind and experience – the Three completed by the Quaternary and the Fifth, escapes upward to the Monad. It is the law of attraction demonstrating through sound. Like to like and kind to kind, driven thereto by unity of sound, of colour and of rhythm.”

ALICE A. BAILEY: White Magic, page
453 – 54: “All forms in nature, as we well know, are made up of myriads of tiny lives, holding a certain measure of awareness, of rhythm, and of coherency according to the force of the Law of Attraction, utilized by the builder of the form. This is true both of the Macrocosm and of the infinite world of microcosmic lives, which are contained within the greater whole.”

628: “The sex instinct has worked out and finds its logical consummation in the relationship – consciously realized – of the soul and the body. This is the keynote of mysticism and religion, which is today, as ever, the expression of the Law of Attraction, not as it expresses itself through physical plane marriage, but as it finds its consummation (for man) in the sublime mar-riage carried forward with conscious intent between the positive soul and the negative and re-ceptive form.”

ALICE A. BAILEY: Esoteric Healing, Part Two, Chapter V, page 424 – 485
My comment: This chapter is about death and the process of restitution in connection with death in which the Law of Attraction plays a major role. On these pages is therefore referred to this law in sever-al instances and to its relation to the Law of Synthesis, for instance page:

433: “The Law of Attraction governs the process of dying, as it governs all else in manifesta-tion. It is the principle of coherency which, under the balanced integration of the whole body, preserves it intact, stabilises its rhythm and cyclic life processes and relates its varied parts to each other. It is the major coordinating principle within all forms, for it is the primary expres-sion (within the soul) of the first aspect of divinity, the will aspect. This statement may surprise you, accustomed as you are to regard the Law of Attraction as an expression of the second aspect, love-wisdom. …”

471: “It is important to note that it is under the basic and fundamental Law of Attraction that the Art of Dying is carried forward, and that it is the love aspect, the second aspect of divinity, which does the attracting. I exclude cases of sudden death. There the activity is the result of the destroyer, or the first divine aspect.”

ALICE A. BAILEY: Discipleship in the New Age II, page
211: “5. The Hierarchy of Masters, the Masters of the Wisdom and the Lords of Compassion. This group, which stands midway between Shamballa and Humanity, is subject to impression from Shamballa, via the Nirmanakayas, and its Members are Themselves the agents for the impression of Humanity. They embody and express the love aspect of the divine purpose; They wield, direct and control the Law of Attraction – the motivating energy which swings the Law of Evolution into activity in the three worlds.”

ALICE A. BAILEY: Esoteric Psychology I, page
193: “We now take up the definition of the word “quality,” which embodies the second ray as-pect. …
The quality that emerges through the process of manifesting, and under the impulse of the di-vine Life, is love, which functions through the medium of the Law of Attraction, with the aim of producing an ultimate synthesis in consciousness.”

266 – 67: “Cyclic appearance … is that which lies behind the science of chemical affinity, of the relation of the polar opposites, and of the marriage relation, whether that of men and women or of the soul and its expression, the personality. It is the cause of the sex relation in the world, which works under the great Law of Attraction and Repulsion.”

287: “Under the symbol of sex, you have also the reality of love itself expressing itself. Love in reality connotes a relation, but the word “love” (like the word “sex”) is used with little thought and with no attention to its true meaning. Basically, love and sex are one and the same thing, for both express the meaning of the Law of Attraction.”

ALICE A. BAILEY: Esoteric Psychology II, page
147: “[The Law of Repulse] is an aspect of one of the greatest cosmic laws, the Law of the Soul, which is the cosmic Law of Attraction, for that which is attracted in time is automatically and eventually repulsed by that which attracted it in the first instance.”

ALICE A. BAILEY: Initiation, Human and Solar, page
139 – 140: “The centres, at initiation, receive a fresh access of vibratory capacity and of pow-er, and this result in the exoteric life as: …
4. A gradual grasp of the law of vibration as an aspect of the basic law of building, the law of attraction, is brought about, and the initiate learns consciously to build, to manipulate thought matter for the perfecting of the plans of the Logos, to work in mental essence, and to apply the law on mental levels, and thereby affect the physical plane. Motion originates cosmically on cosmic levels, and in the microcosm the same will be seen. There is an occult hint here that, pondered on, will reveal much. At initiation, at the moment of the application of the Rod, the initiate consciously realises the meaning of the Law of Attraction in form building, and in the synthesis of the three fires. Upon his ability to retain that realisation, and himself to apply the law, will depend his power to progress.”

Laws Universal, page 564 – 565: “The Law of Attraction is that Universal Law which governs the bringing together of substance for the building of a form. It is that, which when wielded by the Soul, produces an integrated etheric body, capable of electromagnetic radiation and therefore of a force called gravity.

It is the Law of Attraction which sets into motion that energy which is the basis of life in form. Every body, whether it be that of a Star, a Planet, a human being, or an atom of substance is constructed around and held together by a field of life force which we call the etheric network. That life force manifests as radiatory light and is magnetically attractive in the same degree that it is radiatory.

In other words, the so called secret of life is radiation. We have stated before that all sub-stance is intelligent. We also stated that everything is conscious. It is the consciousness within the form which radiates and therefore builds its form. This is why scientists are baffled by the secret of life. Consciousness is something which cannot be located nor measured by their in-struments. Therefore the Soul, its radiant energy and the mystery of the form, have not been solved.

When the Will to Be, acts upon the intelligence of substance, consciousness is born. When con-sciousness is born, its very birth sets up about it a field of force. This field of force attracts the substance of the three lower planes and so a dense form appears in time and space. …

Magnetic Field, page 646: “I will take this opportunity of giving you a little help regarding the Law of Attraction and Repulse as it operates on the physical plane and the higher correspondence of this law as it op-erates as magnetic attraction on the plane of the Soul. If you will establish the habit of becom-ing a Radiating Center of Christ Light, realizing that on the plane of the Soul there is no repulse, that radiation is magnetic, that on the plane of the Soul all those who are to serve in this partic-ular area are already functioning in that capacity. That does not mean that they are consciously aware of this. There are very few disciples, aspirants or students, with sufficient Soul con-sciousness to be aware of what attracts them to any particular individual or group. I am merely trying to clarify the concept that only on the plane of the personality does the Law of Magnetic Impulse manifest as attraction and repulse. It is and has been up to the present a necessary part of the plan, and will continue to be necessary so long as the individual feels the need of such protection. It is that which holds from the personality that which is not needed experience, as well as attracting to it those experiences necessary for growth. The disciple reaches the place where he does not feel the need of protection, and most of you have reached the place where the illusion of this particular need can be superseded by the conscious practice of becom-ing a radiating center of Christ Light.”

LUCILLE CEDERCRANS: Nature of the Soul, Lesson 2, page
35 – 36: “The Spiritual Soul, when it is building its vehicle of incarnation, forms it according to the needed experience, colors it with the necessary qualities to draw, under the law of attrac-tion, the needed lessons, and so grows rich in Wisdom.”
