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.

For a discussion of what AAB means by a “law” please see  Alice A. Bailey – What is a Law?

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” (, 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:

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.
