Book Description

The Soul, The Quality of Life is a compilation of extracts from the 24 books of esoteric philosophy by Alice A. Bailey. On its own plane, the soul knows no separation, and the factor of synthesis governs all soul relations. The soul is occupied not only with the form that the vision of its objective may take, but with the quality or the meaning which that vision veils or hides. The soul knows the Plan; its form, outline, methods and objective are known. Through the use of the creative imagination, the soul creates; it builds thought-forms on the mental plane and objectifies desire on the astral plane. It proceeds then to externalize its thought and its desire upon the physical plane through applied force, creatively actuated by the imagination of the etheric or vital vehicle. Yet because the soul intelligence, motivated by love, it can (within the realized synthesis which governs its activities) analyze, discriminate and divide. The soul likewise aspires to that which is greater than itself, and reaches out to the world of divine ideas, and thus itself occupies a midway position between the world of ideation and the world of forms, This is its difficulty and its opportunity. This compilation seeks to increase understanding of the immortal soul, addressing it's many aspects under sixty two headings.

About the Author

Alice A. Bailey (1880-1949) From her conservative British background, Alice Bailey's life led her in many directions, but always in one direction towards the time she acquired a synthesis of outlook and understanding, and an absolute conviction that one divine life pervades and animates the one humanity; that the Plan for humanity requires the cooperation and service of trained and dedicated human beings intelligently informed about world affairs, in collaboration with those who form the spiritual Hierarchy, the inner government of the planet. Her life work became an integral part of this synthesis and this realization. Without in the least losing any of her very human qualities and involvement, she took up her soul work and committed thirty years to the production of the books that constitute a continuation of the Ageless Wisdom teaching. A total of twenty-four books were written by Alice Bailey. These books constitute a continuation of the Ageless Wisdom, a body of esoteric teaching handed down from ancient times in a form which is always suitable to each period. Intended to precede and condition the New Age, the Alice Bailey books offer an unparalleled spiritual approach to the teaching on Shamballa and the Path of spiritual evolution; the spiritual Hierarchy; the new discipleship and training in meditation as a form of service; the teaching on the seven rays and the new psychology of the soul; and the common thread of truth linking all the major world faiths. In addition to her work as an author and lecturer, Alice Bailey established the Lucis Publishing Company, making the teachings of Djwhal Khul available to spiritual seekers and students around the world for over 75 years. Reprinting of the books is financed through a revolving Fund under the administration of the Lucis Trust, a non-profit organization also founded by Alice A. Bailey. No royalties are paid and copyrights are owned by the Lucis Trust. Through these organizations, Alice Bailey provided for the continued publication of these teachings beyond her physical lifetime

5.0 out of 5 stars beautifull but difficult book December 29, 2004
These books written by A.A. Bailey can be described as one of the more difficult if not the most difficult books out there, regarding spiritual books in general.

It contains advanced material describing advanced commentary on several topics which are in the interrest of the aspirant, adepts of the Path. These are persons that have dedicated or are seeking dedication of their selves to the service of soul, and to advancement of the planet as a whole.


One may be tempted to buy this book based on the interresting titles and/ or subjects spoken about, but for many these will be a bridge to far, for the way dealing with these subjects are not similar to most new age book, but far more hermetic of nature. So dissapointment can be a result.

However Not the least to say that these books are one of the greatest jewels written as an inheritage to those aspiring serious spiritual progression.

Advanced material but precious to those ready for it.

Very hard to follow. Even re-reading and going very slow still had a hard time moving through it. That's just my take.
