World Goodwill Symposium, New York

The Creative Power of Disillusionment

Today illusion is so potent, that few people whose minds are in any way developed are not controlled by vast illusory thoughtforms, which have their roots and draw their life from the lower personality life and desire nature of humanity…these thoughtforms draw their vitality also from the realm of Ideas, but of Ideas wrongly intuited and grasped and forced to serve selfish purposes. One of the things which the developed intuition can do is to break the glamour and illusion which invade the life. (Alice A. Bailey)
