More About the Author

Alice Bailey (1880-1949). In 1919 whilst living in the Krotona Theosophical Institute, Hollywood she was contacted by the Tibetan Master Djwhal Khul who requested her help in writing a series of books.
He saw his work as teaching and spreading the knowledge of the Ageless Wisdom and qualifies this. "I am one who has wrestled and fought his way into a greater measure of light and I must therefore act as a transmitter of the light, no matter what the cost."
This he did through his 30 year collaboration with Alice Bailey resulting in the writing of twenty books of esoteric philosophy. A further four books were written by AAB and several compilations of the work have also been published.
The Tibetan prefaced the books "It is for you to ascertain their truth by right practice and the exercise of the intuition.... If the teaching conveyed calls forth a response from the illumined mind of the worker in the world, and brings a flashing forth of his intuition, then let the teaching be accepted. But not otherwise,"

From Intellect to Intuition 10 Sept. 2001
By Murmurd - Published on
Format: Paperback
Trained in psychology, I tended to take an intellectual view of the world and the people in it, and to put aside what is known as "female intuition." Of course, this is NOT what this book is all about. Here we're talking of the fruits of meditation, the work of the Soul, so to speak. In this book Alice Bailey explains the mental training we have all experienced, both in the East and in the West, due to our education and socialization. We have been using our brains the way society wants us to use them...without having access to the truths that we can discover by using the brain in meditation so that Universal Truths may be recognized as they are. A good primer for learning meditation, FROM INTELLECT TO INTUITION brings us through the stages and helps us make the necessary mental and emotional adjustments, albeit with practice and not only with reading.

An Introduction to the Ancient Wisdom 26 Sept. 2002
By Mystic on the Path - Published on
Format: Paperback
Alice Bailey wrote this book under the tutelage of the Master Djwhal Khul (the Tibetan), a Master of the spiritual "Hierarchy", headed by the Christ. These books comprise genuine, albeit advanced teachings about the Ancient Wisdom (this book however was written by Alice Bailey herself, and is a good introduction/less complex).Spiritual advancement can be expedited by these teachings to those willing and able to learn and grow spiritually. Most of what we know and have been taught about spirituality, the after-life, God, angels, souls, and spiritual evolution is basically erroneous information (analagous to children realizing their is no santa claus or easter rabbit when the higher truth is revealed). This has been further distorted by misguided zealots of all faiths, who accept as dogma the distorted and biased teachings of man-made theologies, and not the one true universal Religion of the Ancient Wisdom (as revealed in the Bailey books). The spiritual truth and reality has been kept alive (besides the Ancient Wisdom) by the mystics and secret esoteric shools throughout the ages. However, even they only have portions of the whole spiritual truth. if you read the Alice Bailey books and are unable to comprehend them fully, another (intermediate) area of study is recommended- Rosicrucian/AMORC (800 88-AMORC).
Also recommend reading (besides all the Alice Bailey books)- Vera Stanley Alder; Zachary Lansdowne; Douglas Baker; Cecil A. Poole; Raymund Andrea; Henry Guy ("Saving the World"); Three Initiates ("KYBALION").

From Intellect to Intuition 30 Jan. 2010
By Connie Kadansky - Published on
Format: Paperback
Thinking that intuition was a "gut" feeling is really instinct. After studying this book, intuition is beyond thought. Intellect is important. However, intuition is something that is very rare and is 1000 times faster than thought. Will be studying this book for a long time to come. Developing intuition is a process that requires much more than the emotional component most people think is intuition.

An introduction to meditation 25 Jun. 2010
By Stella - Published on
Verified Purchase
A.A. Bailey's books usually contain very rich, yet hard to understand information. The effort of reading it is as important as the content itself. This book is perfect to begin reading A.A. Bailey. It sets the basis to understand the concepts of intuition, intellect, and meditation. It also brings practical exercises to begin daily meditation. This is not a commercial manual, or light reading. It's for people who already know the path they want to take, and who are serious about it.

One of the most important books I've read in my 78 years 29 Mar. 2013
By Donna L. Haidary - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book explains so well the differences between eastern and western systems of religion and education and how we can only benefit from sharing thoughts and experience with others. The specialized knowledge from the east and the mass education system in the west are brought together to enrich those who are taking advantage of the learning tools. I've longed my whole life for a better understanding of topics found in this book. It is one I have read twice and see I must read over and over.
