  It is not yet vibrating adequately nor has it yet attained the peak of its activity.It is the basis of the cyclic spiral movement of the body logoic, and just as the Law of Economy is the law governing the internal fires of the system so the cosmic Law of Attraction and Repulsion is the basic law of this divine Ray. The Ray of intelligent will. 

 … This fire is the basic vibration of the little system in which the monad or human spirit is the. It has its correspondence in the ray of intelligent activity and is controlled by the Law of Economy in one of its subdivisions, the Law of Adaptation in Time

  c.The development of matter by the means of friction, under the law of Economy. H. 


 … There are certain other laws in the system which are linked with this one; some of them are as. The Law of Economy.  


 … On each of these planes the process is pursued, and the matter of any plane within the plane. This differentiation of matter is brought about by rotary motion, and is controlled by the Law of Economy (one of the cosmic laws) with which we will deal later, only pausing here to say that this Law of Economy might be considered as the controlling factor in the life of the third Logos. Therefore: a. 

 … His mode of action is rotary, or, by the revolution of matter, to increase activity and thereby. All these three concepts are governed by the Law of Economy, which is the Law of Adaptationin time and space, or the line of least resistance. This line of least resistance is that which is sought for and followed on the matter side of… 

  The activity of the second Logos is carried on under the cosmic Law of Attraction .The Law of Economy has for one of its branches a subsidiary Law of marked development called the Law of Repulsion. The cosmic Laws of Attraction and Economy are therefore the raison d’être (viewed from one angle) … 

 … His mode of action is a driving forward; the will that lies back of evolutionary development is. Second, Increased the vibration of matter itself by means of its own energy, so that matter at the moment of pralaya and obscuration will have two main characteristics,—activity, the result of the Law of Economy, and a dual magnetism which will be the result of the Law of Attraction . All of these three concepts are governed by the Law of Synthesis, which is the law of a coherent… 

  Momentum, resulting therefore in repulsion, was produced by the rotary movement.We have referred to the Law of Repulsion as one of the subsidiary branches of the great Law of Economy, which governs matter. Repulsion is brought about by rotary action, and is the basis of that separation which prevents…

Law of Duality

Law of Duality

Below is the only known reference to the Law of Duality in the writings of Alice A. Bailey (AAB) and Djwhal Khul (DK). Links on these pages of the Laws of Alice A. Bailey are to the online books at the Lucis Trust website.

Had the sons of God not “come in unto the daughters of men” (which is the Biblical and symbolic way of expressing the great relationship between spirit and matter which was established in the human kingdom), had the spiritual entities which are humanity itself not taken unto themselves material forms, and had the positive spiritual element not attached itself to the negative material aspect, the present world conflict would not be taking place.But the divine plan of evolution was based upon the production of this relationship between spiritually conscious man and the form aspect, and thus the great Law of Duality came into action, bringing about the “fall of the angels,” as they descended from their sinless and free state of existence in order to develop full divine awareness upon earth, through the medium of material incarnation and the use of the principle of mind. This was the divine plan, emanating from the Mind of God and swept into activity and progressive unfoldment by an act of His Will.


AAB doesn’t give us a lot to go with the Law of Duality, although she does mention “duality” at least 37 times in her writing – here is one example:

Duality is visioned by the seer. He sees the Presence. He sees, and seeing knows that he exists and likewise that which is seen. … “

“The mystic is ever aware of duality; of the lower man and the indwelling soul; of the tired disciple and the Angel; of the little self and the real Self; of human life expression and of spiritual life expression. Many other qualities stand for the same expression of reality. But, behind them all looms—immanent, stupendous, and glorious—that of which these dualities are but the aspects: the Presence, immanent yet transcendent, of Deity. In the nature of this One, all dualities are absorbed and all distinctions and differences lose their meaning.”

Discipleship in the New Age, Vol. I , SECTION TWO – PERSONAL INSTRUCTIONS TO DISCIPLES – Part 13


Author Joseph J. Dewey has had some interesting things to say about duality:

If you were able to remove yourself from the world of duality, there would be no truth. Truth can only exist when there is more than one of something. Light can only reveal when a shadow is cast. If you are in space and look through millions of miles of the sun’s rays shining through the void, but with no duality of shadow, there is only blackness. Truth only exists in duality and perception of truth also exists there. If there were such a thing as a world with no duality, there would be no truth for nothing would be there and truth is something.

Law of Distribution

The method of the Master’s work upon this Path is also not easily understood. It can be summed up in the following words which may bring some light via their united meaning (each phrase contributing an idea), if due reflection is brought to bear upon them:

Isolated Unity … the position of the Master

A positive Focus … the mental attitude

Sound, under the Law of Attraction … the means employed

Precipitation … the intention visioned

Passage through the Triangle … the projection ensuing

Directive work under the Law of Distribution … direction towards the goal.

These phrases may give some vague idea of a process, based on “reception, then direction, producing rejection and impact where the rejecting agency ordained.”

Rays and The Initiations , SECTION ONE – THE ASPIRANT AND THE MYSTERIES OF INITIATION – Part 3


The mention of the Law of Distribution in the works of AAB is extremely terse with no explanation as to what is meant. However C. W. Leadbeater, an early an controversial Theosophist in his Law of Cause and Effect may shed some light on it:

“It is necessary to realise that we have all of us had many lives, not only one or two; and that since we have gradually raised ourselves to this level, those previous incarnations were all probably less advanced in many ways than our present one. We must all have been savages in the past – and probably not once, but many times. So we must have done a great many evil and undesirable things, and we must each one of us have a tolerably heavy bill to pay. So there arises the question how we are to clear off such an accumulation of evil results. In such lives as the more thoughtful among us are living now, we may reasonably hope that there is a preponderance of good over evil; but undoubtedly the reverse must have been the case in very many of our earlier existences, and if we had to bear in any one life the whole of the suffering due to us on the entire account, we might well find it sufficient to crush us to the earth, and prevent us from evolving at all. Since the object of the whole scheme is man’s evolution, that obviously cannot be permitted; and consequently we find that there comes into operation here a certain law of distribution or adaptation assigning to each successive life such proportion of the debt as can best be paid in it. This modification does not in the least change or reduce the results of our past deeds, but it does so apportion them as to prevent them from overwhelming us.”
