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:

Law of Analogy

Law of Analogy

All known references to the Law of Analogy 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. Baileyare to the online books at the Lucis Trust  website.

From dictionary.com:

analogy
noun, plural analogies.
1. a similarity between like features of two things,on which a comparison may be based:
the analogy between the heart and a pump.

How relevant that definition is to these writings the reader will have to judge. A common analogy in  New Age thinking is “as above so below,” a phrase which is used by Alice A. Bailey [1, 2].

AAB’s definition of a law:

a law is but the effect of the continued intelligent activity of the Life aspect as it works in conjunction with matter.


As we have studied these various constellations, it will have become apparent to you that the main function of the planets is to be distributing agents for the energies emanating from the zodiac as they converge within our solar system and become attracted to our planet.

Was Jesus a Socialist?

Many from alternative spirituality use Jesus along with various scriptures to convince us that high taxes and a government sponsored socialism with the redistribution of wealth is all part of God’s will and therefore a benevolent thing to advocate. These people have many friends in orthodox Christianity such as President Obama who in a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast in February 2012 basically says that those who have abundance should be happy to be taxed by government so they can give it to those who lack because of “God’s command to ‘love thy neighbor as thyself.’”

Then he adds: “But for me as a Christian, it also coincides with Jesus’s teaching that ‘for unto whom much is given, much shall be required.’” 

He continues: “It’s also about the biblical call to care for the least of these — for the poor; for those at the margins of our society.”

And that is not all, he also says, “Treating others as you want to be treated. Requiring much from those who have been given so much. Living by the principle that we are our brother’s keeper. Caring for the poor and those in need. These values are old.”

Then he finishes by quoting the Apostle John: “If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.”

Wow, that really sounds like Jesus must have really been a socialist … or does it?

As I noted earlier there are 41 definitions of the term “socialism” that covers most every aspect of community and sharing so yes, I’m sure one or more of those definitions could be applied to make the argument that Jesus was a socialist of some kind. The same arguments could be used to make the case that many mainstream Christians of today are socialists for sharing, but that totally misses the case that the Left is subtly trying to make.

And what is that?

Hell And The Lonely Realm

“The greatest hell is to have nothing new to create. Hell is creating that which has been, over and over until boredom becomes so great that life force flatlines.

— J.J. DeweyFacebook 3/26/2017

“As the seeker unveils truth after truth he enters a lonely realm, leaving many friends behind who cannot see through his eyes. Then at that moment where he seems alone in the universe a door is open and he is engulfed by a multitude of new friends of celestial presence, invisible to carnal eyes. He never feels alone again.”
