A Brief overview of 2025

(Compiled Feb 2018) There are various predictions for 2025, some spiritual, some materialistic. From a subjective, more spiritual perspective, what follows are excerpts from Alice A. Bailey’s books, in which there are 15 references to 2025, summarized as follows:

From Alice Bailey

  • The books of Alice Bailey were intended to be study guides for disciples and initiates up until 2025, when a new round of teachings are set to begin dispensation. The Bailey books followed on from those of Helena Blavatsky,
  • World evil has not yet been sealed away. The main thrust of work among people of goodwill is to make fundamental changes in human thought and the public aware of a spiritual direction for the planet that underlies the events of the times. This is being vigorously opposed by materialistic interests at present, but it is possible of attainment, and will continue until 2025.
  • The dispelling of world glamour and illusion is the outstanding theme of work to be undertaken until 2025.
  • A new spiritual potential/energy will begin to manifest slowly after 2025, while the present energy is rapidly passing out. [This is a key statement]
  • We only need more light to offset the more materialistic interests. The intensification of light will continue until 2025, after which a relatively stable period will intervene. [That intensification of light is what has contributed to much of the present world unrest].
  • The concept of a world federation of nations is rapidly forming, and will be universally recognized, desired and worked for by 2025. It will not be perfect, but its outline will be in place by that time. [Watch for the words spoken by world leaders in that regard.]
  • New teachings on astrology, among other subjects, to come after 2025.
  • Very great changes will be seen to have taken place until 2025 (from post WWII years) and have increased in activity and speed. In 2025 in all probability, the date will be set [sometime into the future] for the first stage of the reappearance of the spiritual hierarchy on Earth in physical form.
  • Due to the nature of human progress and its great rapidity, we are roughly 2,300 years ahead of schedule in terms of what is to unfold. 2025 is a benchmark date for what is to come for humanity and the planet as a whole.
  • Our ‘day of opportunity’ has only just arrived. The flow of spirituality from the East to the West reached its zenith between 1965 [the start of the New Age movement] and 2025. [We have also seen a large spread of Hindu and Buddhist centers, along with many others, throughout the world, especially in the West.]
  • Control of the world’s resources will increasing come under the control of those people whose primary motivation is that of service and goodwill. They will exist in their millions by 2025.

The Emerging New World Order

Added comments in [brackets]

From Alice Bailey, this is what is said to be emerging from the immediate chaos we are seeing:

1. The new world order must meet the immediate need and not be an attempt to satisfy some distant, idealistic vision.

2. The new world order must be appropriate to a world which has passed through a destructive crisis [such as a pandemic, for instance] and to a humanity which is badly shattered by the experience. [It was hoped the world wars were enough.]

3. The new world order must lay the foundation for a future world order which will be possible only after a time of recovery, of reconstruction, and of rebuilding. [This could take decades, if not centuries longer. Note: This has nothing to do with the ‘Build Back Better’ meme circulating around the West as of 2021.]

4. The new world order will be founded on the recognition that all men are equal in origin and goal but that all are at differing stages of evolutionary development; that personal integrity, intelligence, vision and experience, plus a marked goodwill, should indicate leadership. The domination of the proletariat over the aristocracy and bourgeoisie, as in [the] Russia [of the past], or the domination of an entrenched aristocracy over the proletariat and middle classes [as is emerging in the West since the ’90s], as has been until lately the case in Great Britain, must disappear. The control of labour by capital or the control of capital by labour must also go. [This would appear to be in process since the pandemic.]

[Page 191]

5. In the new world order, the governing body in any nation should be composed of those who work for the greatest good of the greatest number and who at the same time offer opportunity to all, seeing to it that the individual is left free. Today the men of vision are achieving recognition, thus making possible a right choice of leaders. It was not possible until this century. [The 20th, but there is still a ways to go]

6. The new world order will be founded on an active sense of responsibility. The rule will be “all for one and one for all.” This attitude among nations will have to be developed. It is not yet present.

7. The new world order will not impose a uniform type of government, a synthetic religion and a system of standardisation upon the nations. The sovereign rights of each nation will be recognised and its peculiar genius, individual trends and racial qualities will be permitted full expression. In one particular only should there be an attempt to produce unity, and that will be in the field of education. [This directly contradicts many present ‘New World Order’ narratives, such as ‘globalism’.]

8. The new world order will recognise that the produce of the world, the natural resources of the planet and its riches, belong to no one nation but should be shared by all. There will be no nations under the category “haves” and others under the opposite category. A fair and properly organised distribution of the wheat, the oil and the mineral wealth of the world will be developed, based upon the needs of each nation, upon its own internal resources and the requirements of its people. All this will be worked out in relation to the whole. [We can see we have a way to go.]

9. In the preparatory period for the new world order there will be a steady and regulated disarmament. It will not be optional. No nation will be permitted to produce and organise any equipment for destructive purposes or to infringe the security of any other nation. One of the first tasks of any future peace conference will be to regulate this matter and gradually see to the disarming of the nations. [This will take at least many decades, given our present situation]

[Page 192]

These are the simple and general premises upon which the new world order must begin its work. These preliminary stages must be kept fluid and experimental; the vision of possibility must never be lost, and the foundations must be preserved inviolate, but the intermediate processes and the experimentations must be carried forward by men who, having the best interests of the whole at heart, can change the detail of organisation whilst preserving the life of the organism.

“A Treatise on Cosmic Fire. This book was an expansion of the teaching given in The Secret Doctrine on the three fires—electric fire, solar fire and fire by friction—and it was an awaited sequence; it also presented the psychological key to The Secret Doctrine and is intended to offer study to disciples and initiates at the close of this century and the beginning of the next century, up until 2025 A.D.” (Discipleship in the New Age I, p. 779)

“…Above everything else required at this time is a recognition of the world of meaning, a recognition of Those Who implement world affairs and Who engineer those steps which lead mankind onward towards its destined goal, plus a steadily increased recognition of the Plan on the part of the masses. These three recognitions must be evidenced by humanity and affect human thinking and action if the total destruction of mankind is to be averted. They must form the theme of all the propaganda work to be done during the next few decades—until the year 2025—a brief space of time indeed to produce fundamental changes in human thought, awareness, and direction, but—at the same time— a quite possible achievement, provided the New Group of World Servers and the men and women of goodwill perform a conscientious task. Evil is not yet sealed.” (Discipleship in the New Age II, p. 165)

“I have made this practical application and this immediate illustration of teaching anent glamour, illusion and maya because the whole world problem has reached a crisis today and because its clarification will be the outstanding theme of all progress—educational, religious and economic—until 2025 A.D.” (Externalisation of the Hierarchy, p. 364)

“Ray One            Not in manifestation.

*Ray Two             In manifestation since 1575 A.D.

*Ray Three           In manifestation since 1425 A.D.

  Ray Four             To come slowly into manifestation after 2025 A.D.

*Ray Five             In manifestation since 1775 A.D.

  Ray Six                Passing rapidly out of manifestation.  It began to pass out in 1625 A.D.

*Ray Seven          In manifestation since 1675 A.D.”

(Esoteric Psychology II, p. 27)

“We only need more light, in the esoteric sense, in order to see the soul, and that light will shortly be available and we shall understand the meaning of the words, “And in Thy light shall we see light.” This intensification of the light will continue until A.D. 2025, when there will come a cycle of relative stability and of steady shining without much augmentation.  In the second decanate [Gemini] of Aquarius these three aspects will again be augmented by increased light from the fourth aspect, that is the light from the soul realm, reaching us via the universal “chitta” or mind stuff.  This will flood the world.  By that time, however, the soul will be recognised as a fact, and as a consequence of this recognition our entire civilisation will have changed so radically that we cannot today even guess at the form it will take.” (Esoteric Psychology I,  104)

“The inner structure of the World Federation of Nations will eventually be equally well organised, with its outer form taking rapid shape by 2025.  [We see this is the rising multipolar world.] Do not infer from this that we shall have a perfected world religion and a complete community of nations.  Not so rapidly does nature move; but the concept and the idea will be universally recognised, universally desired, and generally worked for, and when these conditions exist nothing can stop the appearance of the ultimate physical form for that cycle.” (Esoteric Psychology I, p. 178)

“We have now the difficult task of considering an aspect of divine manifestation which is as yet so little apparent upon the physical plane that we lack the exact word with which to express it and those words available are likewise misleading. I can, however, attempt to give you certain concepts, relationships and parallels which may serve to close this section on astrology and lay a foundation for future teaching around the year 2025. That is the mode whereby all revelation comes. A thought is given; a symbol described; an idea portrayed. Then, as the minds of men ponder upon it and the intuitives of the world pick up the thought, it serves as a seed thought which eventually comes to fruition with the presentation and the unfolding of a revelation which serves to lead the race of men nearer to their goal.” (Esoteric Astrology, p. 590)

“Thus a great and new movement is proceeding and a tremendously increased interplay and interaction is taking place. This will go on until A.D. 2025. During the years intervening between now and then very great changes will be seen taking place, and at the great General Assembly of the Hierarchy—held as usual every century—in 2025 the date in all probability will be set for the first stage of the externalisation of the Hierarchy. The present cycle (from now until that date) is called technically “The Stage of the Forerunner”. It is preparatory in nature, testing in its methods, and intended to be revelatory in its techniques and results. You can see therefore that Chohans, Masters, initiates, world disciples, disciples and aspirants affiliated with the Hierarchy are all at this time passing through a cycle of great activity.” (Externalisation of the Hierarchy, p. 531)

“Today, human beings as a whole are so loudly invocative that the entire trend of the life of the Hierarchy and Its plans to date have been subjected to change, to postponement as far as certain interior and purely hierarchical determinations are concerned, and to a hastening of certain plans which were slated (if I may use such a word) to take place several centuries later than this but which—owing to the unexpected preparedness of humanity—can take place, not prematurely really, but securely and in the fullness of time; this fullness of time, as regards the particular planning with which we are dealing, is from now until the year 2025 A.D.—a brief period of time indeed in which to see the consummation of the larger purpose of the planetary Logos, working through the three major centres within His body of manifestation. This purpose was threefold in nature:

1. It involved the ability of Those in the Council Chamber at Shamballa to react to and absorb certain extra-planetary energies and to use them in an intra-planetary sense. It had not been anticipated by the Directing Agents of these forces that our planetary Logos would achieve a certain goal so early in time and space as He has.

2. It involved a great expansion, numerically and in the consciousness of the Hierarchy. This predicates a great influx of initiates and disciples and a tremendous inflow of what is esoterically called “angelic essence” from the deva kingdom, under the direction of certain great Devas who have affiliated during the past two hundred years with the Hierarchy. This again had not been expected so early. The result of this happening has been that the door of initiation through which mankind passes stands wider open (symbolically speaking) than ever before, and at the same time, the Masters are passing with greater rapidity on to the Way of the Higher Evolution; this is due to the fact that initiates are fitting themselves so rapidly to take Their places, and disciples are moving on into initiate position so fast, that a great pressing forward has become legitimate.

3. It involved, finally, a great awakening in the human family and a major spiritual reorientation. This again had been believed possible of accomplishment when the sun passed into Capricorn about 2300 years hence. But—it has already taken place and necessarily has brought about a basic adjustment in the plans of the Hierarchy and a renewed emphasis upon the purpose, as registered in Shamballa.”

(Externalisation of the Hierarchy, p. 562)

“…it will become apparent why the day of opportunity has only just arrivedThe East has preserved rules for us since time immemorial.  Here and there Orientals (with a few Western adepts) have availed themselves of those rules and have submitted to the discipline of this exacting science.  Thus has been preserved for the race the continuity of the Secret Doctrine, of the Ageless Wisdom, and thus has been gathered together the personnel of the Hierarchy of our planet.  In the time of the Buddha and through the stimulation He produced there was a great gathering in of Arhats.  These were men who had achieved liberation through self-initiated effort.  This period, in our Aryan race, marked a climax for the East.  Since then the tide of spiritual life has steadily flowed westward, and we may now look for a corresponding climax in the West, which will reach its zenith between the years 1965 and 2025.  Towards this end the adepts of the East and of the West are unitedly working, for they follow always the Law.” (Light of the Soul, p. xii)

“Bread—as the symbol of material human need—will eventually be controlled by a vast group of initiates of the first initiation—by those whose lives are beginning to be controlled by the Christ-consciousness, which is the consciousness of responsibility and service.  These initiates exist in their thousands today; they will be present in their millions by the time the year 2025 arrives.  All this re-orientation and unfoldment will be the result of the activity of the seventh ray and of the impact of its radiation upon humanity.” (The Rays and the Initiations, p. 572)
