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

Esoteric Healing , Part Three – The Fundamental Laws of Healing

The use by the Hierarchy of the destroyer aspect of divinity, the first Ray, in such a manner that it is in fact a creative factor and one which, in the last analysis, not only releases the life from its previous limitations, but also calls in—under the Law of Balance—the building activity of the second Ray. The work of destruction is now practically accomplished and over, and the work of the Builders is beginning.

The Externalisation Of The Hierarchy , SECTION FOUR – STAGES IN THE EXTERNALISATION OF THE HIERARCHY – Part 3



This law is, as we know, the basic law of all manifestation, and the paramount law for this solar system.
