Law of Immersion

Law of Immersion

Below are all of the known references to the Law of Immersion 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 activity of the three divine aspects, in relation to the human family in the first nebulous race (of which science knows nothing), produced what we call the Law of Immersion. It caused that growing diversification of matter, clothing the life, which ultimately produced the early manifestation of the incarnating sons of God. It is not a physical incarnation in the sense that we understand that term. 

 Let us now enumerate these laws in sequence, so as to gain a better idea of their relation and interrelationship:

1. The Law of Immersion first race.
2. The Law of Capitulation second race.
3. The Law of Materialisation Lemurian race.
        The Law of Hidden Radiance
4. The Law of the Tides Atlantean race.
5. The Law of Cleavages Aryan race.
6. The Law of Loving Understanding next race.

On “immersion” AAB writes:

“He is the true Anti-Christ, and through false teaching and the working of so-called miracles, through hypnotism and mass suggestion he draws a veil over the world and forces men to walk in the great illusion. It is interesting to note that the work of the Devil, the imprisoner of souls, is beginning to lose its power, for the race is on the verge of understanding that true death is immersion in form, and that matter is but a part of the divine whole. The thought form of this ‘Dweller on the Threshold’ which humanity has built for millions of years is on the verge of destruction.” -A Treatise on White Magic

Immersion in darkness. This was the result of desire. The darkness of ignorance was chosen and man started, through desire, to work his way from darkness to light, from ignorance to knowledge, from the unreal to the Real.” -Esoteric Psychology
