2nd Systemic Law
ALICE A. BAILEY: Cosmic Fire, page
569: “b. Seven Systemic Laws. – Subsidiary to the three major laws, we find the seven laws of our solar system.  Again we find the law of analogy elucidating, and the three becoming the seven as elsewhere in the logoic scheme.  In each of these seven laws we find an interesting correlation with the seven planes.  They are: …

  1. The law of Cohesion.On the second plane cohesion is first apparent.  It is the first molecular plane of the system, and is the home of the Monad.  Divine coherency is demonstrated.”

576 – 580: “2. The Law of Cohesion. – This is one of the branch laws of the cosmic Law of Attraction.  It is interesting to notice how this law demonstrates in this Love-System in a threefold manner:

On the plane of the Monad, as the law of cohesion, the law of birth, if we might use that term, resulting in the appearance of the Monads in their seven groups.  Love the source, and the Monad of love, the result.

On the plane of buddhi, as the law of magnetic control.  It shows itself as the love-wisdom aspect, irradiating the ego, and eventually gathering to itself the essence of all experience, garnered, via the Ego, through the personality lives, and controlled throughout from the plane of buddhi.  Magnetism, and the capacity to show love, are occultly synonymous.

On the astral plane, as love demonstrating through the personality.  All branches of the law of attraction, demonstrating in this system, show themselves as a force that ingathers, that tends to coherence, that results in adhesion, and leads to absorption.  All these terms are needed to give a general idea of the basic quality of this law.

This law is one of the most important of the systemic laws, if it is permissible to differentiate at all; we might term it the law of coalescence.

On the path of involution it controls the primal gathering together of molecular matter, beneath the atomic subplane. …

In manifestation the cosmic Law of Attraction controls all these subsidiary laws, just as the Law of Synthesis governs pralaya and obscuration, and the law of Economy deals with the general working out, along the line of least resistance, of the logoic scheme.  During manifestation we have most to do with the Law of Attraction, and it will be found, on study, that each subsidiary law is but a differentiation of that law. …”
