Law of Expansive Response

Law of Expansive Response

Below are all of the known references to the Law of Expansive Response 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?

 … The laws we are touching upon concern the relation of the physical plane units to those units who form a part of the group, and yet are functioning without the physical plane sheaths or vehicles.  The same idea must be applied to the units devoid of a physical vehicle who form a component part of the mental body of the group.

These two laws are termed:

6. The Law of Expansive Response.

7. The Law of the Lower Four.  

  3. The Law of Expansive Response. Manas.  Higher spiritual mind.  Sixth Law.  It comes via the knowledge petals and the subsidiary Law of Service 

  6. The Law of Expansive Response We can now, with great brevity, however, touch upon the sixth law and the seventh, for we will speak of them together.  

  The enlightenment which is the result of initiation is necessary before one can touch the idea behind these expressions of purpose. We shall not, therefore, take any time dealing with The Law of Expansive Response, or with The Law of the Lower Four, beyond giving two ancient stanzas which will convey much to the initiate but may only be sounding words and meaningless symbolic phrases to the average reader and student.  

In Esoteric Psychology – Volume II , II. The Seven Laws of Soul or Group Life – Part 5 we get this helpful information that:

These two laws [Law of Expansive Response and Law of the Lower Four] are not capable of interpretation as above, because only those who are initiated or in preparation for initiation can begin to understand them.”

You are welcome to post your comments and understanding of this law.
