Meet the Author

ALICE A. BAILEY (1880-1949) From her conservative British background, Alice Bailey's life led her in many directions, but always towards the time when she acquired: (1) A synthesis of outlook and understanding leading to an absolute conviction that one divine life pervades and animates the one humanity; (2) A realization that the Plan for humanity requires the cooperation and service of trained and dedicated human beings intelligently informed about world affairs, in collaboration with those who form the spiritual Hierarchy, the inner government of the planet. From that point on, Alice Bailey's life work became an integral part of this synthesis and this realization. Without losing any of her very human qualities and involvement, her soul took up its commitment to her Master, and her personality provided full cooperation in the field of her accepted service. Basically Alice Bailey's work developed as a duality, her discipleship service which included the establishment of the Arcane School; and her initially reluctant agreement to work with the Tibetan, Djwhal Khul, in the writing of a series of spiritual books. A total of twenty-four books were written by Alice Bailey. These books constitute a continuation of the Ageless Wisdom, a body of esoteric teaching handed down from ancient times in a form which is always suitable to each period. Intended to precede and condition the New Age, the Alice Bailey books offer an unparalleled spiritual approach to the teaching on Shamballa and the Path of spiritual evolution; the spiritual Hierarchy; the new discipleship and training in meditation as a form of service; the teaching on the seven rays and the new psychology of the soul; and the common thread of truth linking all the major world faiths. In addition to her work as an author and lecturer, Alice Bailey established the Lucis Publishing Company, making the teachings of Djwhal Khul available to spiritual seekers and students around the world for over 75 years. Reprinting of the books is financed through a revolving Fund under the administration of the Lucis Trust, a non-profit organization also founded by Alice A. Bailey. No royalties are paid and copyrights are owned by the Lucis Trust. Through these organizations, Alice Bailey provided for the continued publication of these teachings beyond her physical lifetime.

    '42' ... and more.

    This was the first of the Bailey books to appear before the public and, despite its grand title, is introductory and the easiest to understand. It is but a chapter in a total work - covering twenty four volumes of teaching - undertaken by Mrs Bailey over a period of thirty years. The Bailey books teach to all upon the Path of Return, and the casual 'seeker after truth' will benefit enormously, provided he is willing to accept the teaching as a working hypothesis to be submitted to his inner scrutiny for later verification - or otherwise. In this volume we learn of the existence of the Spiritual Hierarchy of the planet, and of the Masters of the Wisdom who are, in effect, the executive officers of the Earth, tasked with bringing to fruition the plans of God. The initiation process, which is a ceremony carried out in the minds of all who have done the necessary preparation, is described at length. For those still looking for 'that which they seek', it is unlikely that higher and more comprehensive teaching of this kind has been made available to the general public. Assimilation of the total work will take the dedication of a lifetime. Those to whom is entrusted the education of our young people, might like to consider placing this title in the library of the school or college over which they have influence or control, so that the young may have access to another perspective on truth which they can, of course, accept or reject at will. Five stars does not do justice to a work of this kind - nor, for that matter - five hundred. Take a deep breath ... this is the good stuff.
