Colonial Dames of America,


Keynote: Let the group transfigure life in terms of accomplishment
  Transfigure life in terms of accomplishment. True accomplishment involves
a life of steady radiance. There must ever be crises of achievement which
will draw upon the full resources of the soul. These must be demanded by
the personality. Understand the technique of an aligned personality, for
the extremity of the disciple in service draws out finally the interest of the
soul. (Alice A. Bailey)
