Law of Correspondence

Law of Correspondence

Below are all of the known references to the Law of Correspondence 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 a discussion of what AAB means by a “law” please see  Alice A. Bailey – What is a Law?

In addition to the Law of Correspondence (singular) there is a Law of Correspondences (plural) which appears much more often in AAB’s writings. Below are all the references I found to the singular form of Law of Correspondence.


This is a deep mystery and I fear it is not possible for me to express these ideas with greater clarity. However, under the Law of Correspondence or Analogy, the initiate can gradually come to a true perception of the significances involved.

The fifth kingdom in nature, the spiritual, will emerge out of the fifth root race. Such is the esoteric control of the Law of Correspondence.

There are not therefore four deaths, as the goal of our system during manifestation is “initiation or release into the air,” so that the bird of life out of time and space can fly free. The concept which the Law of Correspondence brings of the final death is covered by the words liberation, relinquishment and final initiation, and means little to humanity, for it concerns the planetary Logos and His life cycle.

Law of Contrasts

Law of Contraries

Below are all of the known reference to the Law of Contrasts 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.

The theme we will now consider is one which is of general interest but not of individual moment. Arguing as one ever must from the universal to the particular, it is essential that humanity relates its own mechanism to the greater mechanism through which the planetary Life functions and views his soul as an infinitesimal part of the world soul. It is necessary for him, therefore, to relate his Sun sign to his rising sign and his soul to his personality, viewing both as aspects and integral parts of the human family. This will be increasingly the case. This process is beginning to demonstrate in the steadily expanding group, national and racial consciousness which humanity is today demonstrating—a consciousness which shows as a spiritual inclusiveness or as an abnormal and wicked attempt (from the standpoint of the soul) to fuse and blend all nations into a world order, based on material issues and dominated by a material vision. There was nothing spiritual in the vision of the leaders of the powers which were called the Axis powers. But the spiritual intent of mankind is slowly growing and the great Law of Contrastswill eventually bring illumination.

I would like to enlarge somewhat upon this subject of the centres through which spiritual energy is today flowing, but it must be remembered that the theme with which we are now occupied is one of general interest but not of individual moment. Arguing as one ever should from the universal to the particular, it is essential that humanity relate its own mechanism to the greater mechanism (our entire planetary life) and view what is called “one’s own soul” as an infinitesimal part of the world soul. It is necessary also for man to relate his soul to his personality, viewing both as aspects and integral parts of the human family. This will be increasingly the case. This process is beginning to demonstrate in the steadily expanding group, national and racial consciousness which humanity is today demonstrating — a consciousness which shows as a spiritual inclusiveness or as an abnormal and wicked attempt (from the standpoint of the soul) to fuse and blend all nations into a world order, based on material issues and dominated by a material vision. There was nothing spiritual in the vision of the leaders of the powers which were called the Axis powers, and the vision of the masses of people has not proved adequate to arrest, as yet, the materialising of this vision. But the spiritual intent of mankind is slowly growing and the great Law of Contrasts will eventually bring illumination.

We have now considered briefly and yet I believe instructively certain of the subjective influences and significances of the twelve signs of the zodiac. We have touched upon their mutual inter-relation and their planetary interplay and have sought to portray the reactions of humanity to these multiple energies and forces. These forces, pouring out from cosmic sources, find their way into our solar system, being attracted thereto through analogous quality or—under the Law of Contradictions or the Law of Contraries—find their way to certain planets. …

Law of Contradictions

Law of Contradictions

Below is the only known reference to the Law of Contradictions 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.

There is a law in classic logic called the law of contradiction that “a proposition cannot be bothtrue and false or that a thing cannot both have andnot have a given property” (Dictionary.com), although not sure that AAB meant anything like that.

There is an interesting passage in Esoteric Astrology about contradictions:

“Students of my books and of The Secret Doctrine must remember that any contradictions which may appear are only contradictions in Time and that when this time factor is properly understood and the student knows to what specific cycle the information should be applied, these apparent inexactitudes will disappear.” Esoteric Astrology , 3. The Triangles and the Centres. – Part 1

The single quote to the Law of Contradictions I found below:

Law of Consequence(s)

Law of Consequence(s)

Below are all of the known references to the Law of Consequence or Law of Consequencesby 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.

Only three references, one to a Law of Consequence (singular) and two to a Law of Consequences. Not sure what the distinction might be. I found one interesting references to “consequences” here that might be relevant:

…  it is not permitted to interfere with personal karma any more than it is permitted to shield from the consequences of action.” -A Treatise on White Magic , THE CREATIVE WORK OF SOUND

The mental development of disciples everywhere is today of such a calibre that it does not take as long for them to make the needed adjustments or to change their attitudes and conditions of life as it did formerly; it does not take as long for them to assimilate a presented truth or to respond to an intuitive perception. Their grasp of the Law of Cause and Effect and their appreciation of the subsidiary Law of Consequences is far more prompt than in the past. These facts therefore necessitate a recognition upon the part of the Masters of the more advanced condition and a pronounced saving of time as the consequence.
