Atomic Energy

Alice A. Bailey on Atomic Energy

Alice A. Bailey  (and DK) appear to have had a very positive view on the possibilities of humanity using atomic energy for good. Joseph J. Dewey , author and longtime student of the AAB/DK writings, pointed out that:

“In A Treatise on Cosmic Fire Page 907 (Published 1925) he [Djwhal Khul] predicted the discovery of atomic energy and then after the first atomic bomb went off he stated that this was a source of power that will eventually liberate humanity.” -Joseph J. Dewey, Djwhal Khul Predictions

You can find the specific quote below starting with “On the physical plane, the great scientific discovery, …”

“From these writings it is obvious that the Hierarchy was hopeful that humankind would perfect atomic technology, yet despite this it is interesting that many who see themselves as enlightened are totally against this, the safest and most environmentally friendly source of energy in the free world. -Joseph J. Dewey, The Nuclear Solution

Below are all of the places I could find that mention “atomic energy” in the AAB/DK writings.


… man will eventually come to the realisation that in atomic energy, harnessed to his need, or in the inducing of increased radioactivity, lies for him the path to prosperity and riches. He will, therefore concentrate his attention on this higher form of life transference and …

he will find the secret of atomic energy, latent in the mineral kingdom, and will bend that inconceivable power and force to the solution of the problems of existence. Only when atomic energy is better understood and the nature of the fourth ether somewhat comprehended, shall we see that control of the air which lies inevitably ahead.

Is the etheric web of the planet sufficiently stable and balanced so that it can adequately respond to the new and potent forces which could and will pour through it into objective expression? I would remind you that the release of atomic energy has had a far more potent effect in the etheric web than in the dense physical vehicle of the planet.

The third indication was the release of atomic energy and the discovery of how to transmute energy into matter and matter into energy.

Death is to man exactly what the release of the atom appears to be; this the great scientific discovery of the release of atomic energyhas demonstrated. The nucleus of the atom is split in two. (This wording is scientifically incorrect.) This event in the life experience of the atom releases a great light and a great potency; upon the astral plane, the phenomenon of death has a somewhat similar effect and has a close parallel in the phenomena brought about by the release of atomic energy. Every death, in all the kingdoms of nature, has to some extent this effect; it shatters and des

Esoteric Healing , CHAPTER VI – The Art of Elimination


The physical body is not yet generally recognised as an electrical unit; its nature as pure atomic energy is not yet realised; the fact of the energy body, the etheric vehicle, is not at this time recognised in the teachings of the modern medical schools, though the fact has been discussed; the explosive nature of energy, when in contact with force, or of the soul in relation to substance, is completely unknown or veiled in mystical language. Until such time as the new scientific formulas and the new approach (which the discovery of the release of atomic energy has made possible) have become more generally understood, are a familiar subject of discussion and couched in familiar language, the coming science of healing must remain behind a veil of unsuitable language and hidden by inappropriate words.

Esoteric Healing , CHAPTER IX – The Seven Modes of Healing


The four energies of the lower self—atomic energy, vital energy, feeling energy and mental energy—plus the two energies of the soul, make the six energies used by man in his life experience; but the energy of the atom is usually not counted as a human energy, as it is uniform in its usage in all [69] forms of life in all kingdoms, and therefore man is regarded as a sum total of five energies, and not of six energies.

Conditions will be basically altered; along certain lines, such as the distribution of coal and oil for lighting, heating and transportation, is it not possible that in the future neither of these planetary resources will be required? These are two instances of the fundamental changes which the use of atomic energy may make in future civilized living.

Problems Of Humanity , CHAPTER III – THE PROBLEM OF CAPITAL, LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT


The spiritual principle of Freedom became increasingly recognized and its expression demanded. World conditions tended in the same direction. Movements of every kind became possible, symbolizing this growth and the demand for freedom. The machine age was succeeded by the age of transportation, of electricity, of railroads, the automobile, and the airplane. The age of communications paralleled this also, giving us the telegraph, the telephone, the radio and today, television and radar. All these merged into the present age of science which has given us the liberation of atomic energy and the potentialities inherent in the discovery.

Problems Of Humanity , CHAPTER III – THE PROBLEM OF CAPITAL, LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT


The frankly selfish motive of self-preservation. The release of atomic energy has not only put into human hands a potent force which will inevitably bring in a new and better way of life, but also a terrible weapon, capable of wiping the human family off the face of the earth.

Problems Of Humanity , CHAPTER III – THE PROBLEM OF CAPITAL, LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT


Atomic energybelongs to humanity as a whole. The responsibility for its control must lie in the hands of the men of goodwill. They must control its destiny and make it available along constructive lines for the use of men everywhere.Problems Of Humanity , CHAPTER III – THE PROBLEM OF CAPITAL, LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT


The release of atomic energy is the first of many great releases in all the kingdoms of nature; the great [83] release still ahead of humanity will bring into expression mass creative powers, spiritual potencies and psychic unfoldments which will prove and demonstrate the divinity and the immortality of man.

Problems Of Humanity , CHAPTER III – THE PROBLEM OF CAPITAL, LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT


The intelligence of humanity now is of such a nature that certain earlier initiations no longer exist, and mankind has shown itself to possess the potentialities which will enable its individual units to tread not only the one or two cosmic Paths hitherto open to them, but all of them, if given the right training. This the premature discovery of the release of atomic energy has well demonstrated to the Hierarchy.

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


On the physical plane, the great scientific discovery, called colloquially the "splitting of the atom," will be turned eventually to the production of those conditions which will enable mankind to follow the good, the beautiful and the true. This men will then be able to do, freed from the dread presence of purely materialistic thinking. This is no idle vision or vague dream.Many scientists today (and particularly those who love their fellowmen) are not only visioning the non-destructive aspect of atomic energy but are already engaged in harnessing—for the good of humanity—some of its products and its radioactive properties.

a. The stage of atomic energy.

The Consciousness of the Atom , LECTURE I


Let me see if I can make my meaning clear. The stage of atomic energy is largely that which concerns the material side of life, and corresponds to the childhood period in the life of a man or a race. It is the time of realism, of intense activity, of development by action above all else, or pure self-

The Consciousness of the Atom , LECTURE I


In considering broadly the atoms of the solar system, including the system itself, there are two things noticeable: the first is the intense life and activity of the atom itself, and its internal atomic energy; and the second is its interaction with other atoms—repelling some and attracting others.

The Consciousness of the Atom , LECTURE II


Just as in the evolution of substance three stages could be seen —that of atomic energy, of group coherence, and of eventual synthesis—so in the, evolution of man will the same appear.

Just as in the evolution of substance three stages could be seen —that of atomic energy, of group coherence, and of eventual synthesis—so in the, evolution of man will the same appear.

The Consciousness of the Atom , LECTURE IV


The method of the evolutionary development of consciousness in a human being is but a repetition on a higher turn of the spiral, of the two stages which we noted in the evolution of the atom, that of atomic energy and of group coherence. In the world at present can be seen the human family at the atomic stage of manifestation, leading on to a goal not yet achieved, the group stage.

a man called Keely, but he was not allowed to give it out to the world because of the danger thereby involved. Men are as yet far too selfish to be trusted with the distribution of atomic energy. That discovery will probably parallel the development of group consciousness. Only when man becomes radio-active and can work and think in group terms, will it be safe or wise for him to utilise the power latent in the atom. Everything in nature is beautifully co-ordinated, and nothing can be discovered or utilised before the right time. Only as man becomes unselfish will this tremendous power be permitted to pass into his hands. Nevertheless, we can, I believe, look to science to make tremendous strides in the comprehension of atomic energy.

THE RELEASE OF ATOMIC ENERGY

The Externalisation Of The Hierarchy , SECTION THREE – FORCES BEHIND THE EVOLUTIONARY PROGRESS OF THE RACE – Part 9


I would like at this time to touch upon the greatest spiritual event which has taken place since the fourth kingdom of nature, the human kingdom, appeared. I refer to the release of atomic energy, as related in the newspapers this week, August 6, 1945, in connection with the bombing of Japan.

The Externalisation Of The Hierarchy , SECTION THREE – FORCES BEHIND THE EVOLUTIONARY PROGRESS OF THE RACE – Part 9


Four factors lie behind the momentous happening of the release of this form of atomic energy, through the medium of what is erroneously and unscientifically called the “splitting of the atom.” There are other factors, but you may find the following four of real interest:

2. Owing to the development of atomic energy on behalf of human welfare, national currencies will have been largely superseded, not only by a system of barter but by a universal monetary exchange—representative of the bartered goods when they are relatively small and unimportant—and by a planned scale of related values. National material assets and the needed commodities will all be provided for under an entirely new system.

“The life is not a function of the form, the form is a product of the life; the weight and solidity of matter are the result and expression of intra-atomic energy, and every muscle or nerve in the body is the moulded instrument of desire.” [liv]10
