Law of Death

Law of Death

Below are all of the known references to the Law of Death 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.

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


This law links itself to the third law, that of Disintegration following the connection that always exists between the atmic and the physical plane. The Law of Disintegration controls the fivefold destruction of forms in the five lower worlds, and the Law of Death controls similarly in the three worlds.

It is subsidiary to the third law. The Law of Sacrifice is the Law of Death in the subtle bodies, whilst what we call death is the analogous thing in the physical body.

This law governs the seventh chain in each scheme; each chain having achieved the fullest expression possible in the scheme, comes under the Law of Death, and obscuration and disintegration supervenes.

a. The Law of Disintegration is an aspect of the Law of Death.

b. The Law of Death controls in the three worlds.

c. The Law of Sacrifice is the Law of Death in the subtle bodies, whilst what we call death is the analogous thing in the physical body.

d. The Law of Death and Sacrifice governs the gradual disintegration of concrete forms and their sacrifice to the evolving life.

We come now to the enunciation of a new law which is substituted for the Law of Death and which has reference only to those upon the later stages of the Path of Discipleship and the stages upon the Path of Initiation.

Esoteric Healing , CHAPTER VI – The Art of Elimination


My proposition will serve to show you some of the relationships between death and constructive activity, and the wide usefulness of death as a process in reconstruction. It will convey to you the idea that this great Law of Death—as it governs substance in the three worlds—is a beneficent and corrective event.

It will convey to you the idea that this great Law of Death—as it governs substance in the three worlds—is a beneficent and corrective event. Without enlarging upon it, I would remind you that this Law of Death, which governs in such potency in the three worlds of human evolution, is a reflection of a cosmic purpose which governs the cosmic etheric planes of our solar system, the cosmic astral plane and the cosmic mental plane.

Note: This last law is the enunciation of a new law which is substituted for the Law of Death, and which has reference only to those upon the later stages of the Path of Discipleship and the stages upon the Path of Initiation.

Esoteric Healing , CHAPTER VIII – The Laws and Rules Enumerated and Applied – Part 1


We, however, erroneously apply the term living to the ability of a form to manifest and express its quality and nature. Yet livingness and quality exist apart from form and often come into major expression and usefulness through the application of the Law of Death.

Esoteric Healing , CHAPTER VIII – The Laws and Rules Enumerated and Applied – Part 3


We come now to the final and the most mysterious law of all that I have given you. I called your attention to it earlier, and there pointed out that this “last law is an enunciation of a new law which is substituted for the Law of Death, and which has reference only to those found upon the later stages of the Path of Discipleship and the stages upon the Path of Initiation.

The Laws of Alice A. Bailey

Law of Alice A. Bailey

Below are a list of all the “Laws” I can find in the writings of Alice A. Bailey. Most often I think these are capitalized but there are many instances where they are not. If you notice any that I have missed please leave a comment on this page and I will update it.

Those Laws below which have a link contain all the references I can find to that Law. However this page is a “work in progress” so check back from time to time to find new entries.

I would encourage people knowledgable with the writings of Alice A. Bailey to leave comments on the individual pages for each Law as to their understanding of its meaning and its implications.

What Question Would You Ask God?

Anne Foerst writes in “God in the Machine: What Robots Teach Us About Humanity and God“:

“What does it mean to be human? How can humanness be defined? Can we ever come up with criteria that distinguish us from animals – or, for that matter, from robots? And what exactly is our place and our purpI Aose on this planet, in our sun system, in the universe? Are humans special, or are they just another random species on an insignificant planet?”

As computer scientists make great advances in the field of Artificial Intelligence the day looms when such questions may become crucial. No one knows when our technology will reach the point of either reproducing real intelligence, or mimicking it so accurately that even experts may have difficulty discerning the difference.

As early as 1950 Alan Turing proposed the possibility of creating a test to distinguish between human and machine intelligence. Today this is known as a Turing Test and various forms have been devised for commercial use on the Internet to try to weed out “bots,” or computer programs that attempt to imitate humans in leaving comments with thinly disguised spam to sell everything from smut to stocks.

One has to wonder if there might be a possibility of a kind of Turing Test for God.

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.”

— J.J. DeweyFacebook 3/25/2017

Political Polarization – Why We Need Both Right And Left

Politics is often not considered a spiritual subject. Despite that prejudice, there are things that the spiritual seeker can learn from politics. It is definitely an area of great polarization and illusion.

Right and Left, Conservative and Liberal, are labels for individual tendencies that if understood in full apply to many aspects of our lives. The label “Conservative” from the word “conserve” reflects a desire to protect something. In politics this could mean to protect a system or way of life that one views as the good or desirable. The conservative mindset is suspicious of change.

The Liberal mindset in many respects is the polar opposite. This mindset sees imperfection in most institutions, customs, laws and quickly loses patience with slow change. The past is not an ideal. Rather the past is the old, the tired, and the evil that must be corrected (immediately if not sooner)! It is not an accident that former President Obama used the word “change” in many of his campaign slogans, e.g., “Vote for Change,” “Change We Can Believe In,” “Organize for Change,” and “A leader who can deliver change.”

A person who considers him or herself a protector of the environment could be accurately called an environmental conservative. A person can very easily be liberal in one sphere of life, and conservative in another. Almost everyone has something they want to protect, and almost everyone would like some change.

The truth is that many people polarized in a conservative viewpoint see need for some change, just not too quick or too radical. Those polarized in a liberal viewpoint also have those things they want to protect or conserve, but they are far more willing to take chances on  untested solutions.

You Are Headed for the Straight and Narrow Path If:

Chances Are You Are Headed for the Straight and Narrow Path If:

You contemplate the will of God and try to manifest it.

You look beyond obnoxious personality traits to see the Christ within others.

You are motivated by love of others above love of the material self.
