"We pass through a long period or cycle of many lives, wherein we identify ourselves with the form and are so one with the not-self that we recognize no difference, being entirely occupied with the things which are transient and impermanent. It is this identification with the not-self which leads to all the pain, dissatisfaction, and sorrow in the world..." (p.108.)
This is the first book Alice Bailey, a 3.0 degree initiate, wrote herself, i.e. that wasn't dictated to her by the Master Djwhal Khul (DK).
"There is no such thing as dead matter; all matter is conscious. It is the consciousness of the atom, the desire principle inherent in every atom in the universe, that drove the fish out of the sea and onto dry land, to become a mammal and eventually a human being." (Benjamin Creme, The Art of Co-operation, p.115-16)
