Attraction and Repulsion

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.”
