Cosmic Law of 1st aspect (The Law of Life)
ALICE A. BAILEY: Cosmic Fire, page
40 – 41: “The Ray of intelligent will. …
This ray is governed by the Law of Synthesis, and is the basis of the systemic movement which may be best described as that of driving forward through space, or forward progression. Little can be predicated anent this ray and its expression. It controls the movements of the entire ring-pass-not in connection with its cosmic centre.”

147: “The Mahadeva aspect or the first Logos (who embodies cosmic will) is controlled by the Law of Synthesis, the cosmic law governing the tendency to unification; only in this case, it is not the unification of matter and Spirit, but the unification of the seven into the three, and into the one. These three figures primarily stand for Spirit, for quality, for principle, and not so primarily for matter, although matter, being inspired by spirit, conforms. The Law of Synthesis has a direct connection with One Who is still higher than our Logos, and is the law of control exercised by Him upon the Logos of our system.”

149: “All of these three concepts [the goal, the function and the mode of action of the first Logos] are governed by the Law of Synthesis, which is the law of a coherent will-to-be, persisting not only in time and space, but within a still vaster cycle.”

215: “The first Aspect, or the will to exist, is governed by the Law of Synthesis, and the activities of the cosmic entities who are its embodiments are governed by the law of enforced unity, and of essential homogeneity. It is the law that eventually comes into play after spirit and matter are blending, and adapting themselves each to each; it governs the eventual synthesis of Self with Self, and finally with the All-Self, and also of essence with essence in contra-distinction to the synthesis of matter and Spirit.”

567: “Three Cosmic Laws.  The first of the cosmic laws is the Law of Synthesis.  It is almost impossible for those of us who have not the buddhic faculty in any way developed, to comprehend the scope of this law.  It is the law that demonstrates the fact that all things – abstract and concrete – exists as one; it is the law governing the thought form of that One of the cosmic Logoi in Whose consciousness both our system, and our greater centre, have a part.  It is a unit of His thought, a thought form in its entirety, a concrete whole, and not the differentiated process that we feel our evolving system to be.  It is the sumtotal, the centre and the periphery, and the circle of manifestation regarded as a unit.”

1182: “Students may find it of use to remember that,

  1. The Law of Economy demonstrates as an urge,
  2. The Law of Attraction as a pull,
  3. The Law of Synthesis as a tendency to concentrate at a centre, or to merge.”

ALICE A. BAILEY: Rays and The Initiations, page
248: “1. Let the group understand the Law of Synthesis.  (This is the law which governs the thinking of those great Lives Who form the Council of Sanat Kumara in Shamballa.)”

261 – 62: “Radiation.  The initiate is a radiating centre of light and love.  This radiation has two effects:

  1. It has made him an essential and vital factor for unity in the Master’s Ashram.
  2. It has enabled him to gather around him his own group and thus begin to form his own ashram.

The personnel of the world group which will reveal the hidden mystery will all of them be “radiant centres” to a greater or lesser degree.  They will thus be invocative and evocative.  This thought holds the clue to the Law of Synthesis, of unity and of fusion as given in Rule XIII for initiates.”

266: “But more must still be learnt if the Way of the Higher Evolution is to be trodden and a choice between the seven cosmic Paths made – a choice which curiously enough is not dependent upon ray, for all rays are to be found on all these paths.

This can only be done through synthesis.  This Law of Synthesis

“works through the Seven which yet are One; which points to the seven ways and yet those upon the seven ways are one; which initiates the universal into the many but preserves its integrity; which originates the plan but preserves intact the purpose; which sees the multiplicity needed under the Law of Sacrifice but subordinates that law unto the Law of Synthesis; which breathes forth the many Breaths and yet is Life Itself.”

In this attempt to paraphrase an ancient definition of the Law of Synthesis, I have said all that I can upon the theme.”

334: “But, my brothers, here is the point of interest.  Under the great law of synthetic expression (called by us the Law of Synthesis, the law governing the first divine aspect) the Hierarchy must move forward in such a manner that the effort must encompass the physical plane as well as the higher planes.”

ALICE A. BAILEY: The Reappearance of the Christ, page
77: “This Being [The Avatar of Synthesis] is closely related to the Will Aspect of divinity, and His cooperation has been made possible through Christ’s Own attainment along the line of the highest, spiritual will. He works under the great natural Law of Synthesis, producing at-one-ment, unification and fusion.”

ALICE A. BAILEY: Discipleship in the New Age II, page
208 – 09: “2. The Group which is the higher correspondences of the Nirmanakayas. This group sustains and cooperates with the planetary Logos in His concentrated creative thought; its Members are the agents for attracting – through the potency of Their meditation – those extra-planetary energies which He needs to carry forward His vehicle of expression, the planet, and thus to bind all together into one great created Whole, tending ceaselessly to the greater glory of God. They wield the Law of Synthesis and hold steadfastly (in the universal Mind of the Logos) the ultimate result of the divine Will-to-Good.”
