Alice A. Bailey on
THE FACT OF IMMORTALITY & ETERNAL PERSISTENCE
*

In her 24 books Alice Bailey discusses this Divine Truth of Deity,
from which we present the following excerpts, toward further understanding.

 

The new world religion must be based upon those truths which have stood the test of the ages. This I said elsewhere and enumerated four of those truths:

1. The Fact of God
2. Man's Relationship to God
3. The Fact of Immortality and Eternal Persistence
4. The Continuity of Revelation and the Divine Approaches.

                       - The Externalisation of the Hierarchy, Alice A. Bailey, p. 404

 

The immortality of the human soul, and the innate ability of the spiritual, inner man to work out his own salvation under the Law of Rebirth, in response to the Law of Cause and Effect, are the underlying factors governing all human conduct and all human aspiration. These two laws no man can evade. They condition him at all times until he has achieved the desired and the designed perfection and can manifest on earth as a rightly functioning son of God. The spirit in man is undying; it forever endures, progressing from point to point and stage to stage upon the Path of Evolution, unfolding steadily and sequentially the divine attributes and aspects.
                                          - The Reappearance of the Christ, p. 147

 

 

The fact of this innate divinity explains the urge at the heart of every man for betterment, for experience, for progress, for increasing realization and for his steady moving on towards the distant height which he has visioned. There is no other explanation of the capacity of the human spirit to emerge out of darkness, out of evil and death into life and goodness. This emergence has been the unfailing history of man. Something is always happening to the human soul which projects him nearer to the Source of all good and nothing on earth can arrest this progress nearer to God.
                                          - Problems of Humanity, p. 143-4

 

 

The fact of immortality is today on the verge of scientific proof; the fact of the survival of some factor has already been proved, though what has been demonstrated as surviving is apparently not in itself intrinsically immortal. The factual nature of the soul, and the fact of soul survival and of its eternal livingness, go hand in hand and have not yet been scientifically proven; they are, however, known and recognised as truths today by such countless millions and by so many intellectuals that — unless mass hysteria and mass deception is posited — their existence is already correctly surmised.
                                           - The Reappearance of the Christ, p. 105

 

 

Doubt as to the fact of immortality will be solved ... as the result of scientific investigation. Certain scientists will … enter upon that search with a willingness to learn, a readiness to accept and a desire to formulate conclusions based upon reiterated evidence. ... the fact of persistence and of the eternity of existence will have advanced out of the realm of questioning into the realm of certainty .... The development of a power within the physical eye of a human being (a power which has always been there, but which has been very little used) will reveal the etheric body, the "double," as it is sometimes called; and men will be seen occupying that body in some definite spatial area whilst their dead or disintegrating physical body has been left behind. Then again, the growth in the number of those people who have the power to use the "single eye," sometimes called the "reawakened third eye," will also add to the demonstration of the truth of immortality, for they will with facility see the man who has discarded his etheric body as well as his physical body. By the very weight of their numbers, and by the reputability of their position, they will carry their point. Through a discovery also in the field of photography, now being investigated, will the fact of survival be proven. Through the use of the radio by those who have passed over will communication be eventually set up, and reduced to a true science.
                                           - Esoteric Psycholgy I, p. 183-4
