Law of Cause and Effect (Karma)

Law of Cause and Effect

All known references to the Law of Cause and Effect by Alice A. Bailey (AAB) in her voluminous writings and those given to her by Djwhal Khul (DK). Links on these pages of the Laws of Alice A. Bailey are to the online books at the Lucis Trust  website.

For AAB the Law of Cause and Effect is just another name for Karma as witnessed in many of the quotes below. I will create another page for the “Law of Karma” although there will certainly be much overlap.

What is a law?

… a law is but the spiritual impulse, incentive and life manifestation of that Being in which he lives and moves. A Treatise on White Magic , INTRODUCTORY REMARKS

A law is an expression or manifestation of force applied, under the power of thought, by a thinker or group of thinkers. Discipleship in the New Age, Vol. I , SECTION ONE – DISCIPLESHIP IN THE NEW AGE – Part 2

… a law is in reality the effect of the life of a greater entity as it encloses a lesser within its living processes.
Esoteric Healing , Part Three – The Fundamental Laws of Healing

… a law is but the effect of the continued intelligent activity of the Life aspect as it works in conjunction with matter. Esoteric Psychology – Volume I , 5. The Rays in Cyclic Manifestation

A law is only an expression or manifestation of force, applied under the power of thought by a thinker or group of thinkers. Esoteric Psychology – Volume II , II. The Seven Laws of Soul or Group Life – Part 5

A law presupposes a superior being who, gifted with purpose, and aided by intelligence, is so coordinating his forces that a plan is being sequentially and steadily matured. A Treatise on White Magic

Author Joseph J. Dewey writes:

“Of all the principles that govern the universe this is the most basic of them all. This is the principle from which all others are derived. There is no effect or creation without a cause and no cause that does not produce effect.”

“Cause and effect is the foundation of duality, which is the cause of all manifestation. “-Principle Two: Cause & Effect

I found references to this law on 73 pages at Lucis Trust. These are necessarily short quotes and many times you will need to go to the page at Lucis Trust to get the complete context.

Below are the quotes on the Law of Cause and Effect that I found in the writings of AAB:
