Overview

2011 Reprint of 1944 Fourth Illustrated Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Alice Ann Bailey (1880-1949), known as Alice A. Bailey or AAB to her followers, was an influential writer and theosophist in what she termed "Ageless Wisdom". This included occult teachings, "esoteric" psychology and healing, astrological and other philosophic and religious themes. Alice Bailey was born in Manchester, England. She moved to the United States in 1907, where she spent most of her life as a writer and teacher. In Bailey's writings, evolution is defined as the process of bringing the "lower nature", that is one's physical, emotional, and mental selves, into integration and alignment with the will of the soul,or higher nature. It is this transformation that leads to "right human relations" and spiritual revelation or awakening. Discrete steps on the spiritual path are called initiations, which is to say that the evolving consciousness is entering into new and wider fields of awareness, relationships, responsibilities, and power. This work explains her philosophy at work. A classic text.

    '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.
