The Intermediate Phase
“The intermediate phase of the teaching was revealed by Alice Bailey
who, from 1919 to 1949, collaborated with a Master of Wisdom known as ‘the Tibetan’. Through a process of telepathic overshadowing, the
Master Djwhal Khul communicated a vast body of information about the
world and its future.” (Benjamin Creme (1997), Maitreya’s Mission, Vol.III, p.343.)
This was “the more detailed structure and the sweep of the hierarchical intention ... given by me in the books which A.A.B. has introduced under her own name to the public (in so doing acting under my instructions).” (The Master DK through Alice A. Bailey, The Externalization of the Hierarchy, p.685)
In addition to the 19 books which the Master DK dictated to Alice Bailey, she herself was the author of a further six books (not counting the 1974 compilation The Labours of Hercules), which are located here on the ‘shelf’ for additional books).
Lucis Trust, which Alice A. Bailey founded to publish her books, was originally called Lucifer Trust. ‘Lucifer’, Latin for ‘Bringer of Light’, is not the rebellious angel who was thrown out of Heaven. “This is simplistic and shows a complete misunderstanding of the reality,” according to Benjamin Creme. “In the esoteric teaching Lucifer is the name for the great angelic Entity who embodies the human kingdom on the soul plane.” (Maitreya’s Mission, Vol.II, pp.231-32)
