Discipleship in the New Age I - Talks to Disciples - Part III
Second: the power of the intuition, which is the goal of much of the work which disciples must do, requires the unfoldment of another faculty in man. The intuition is a function of the mind also and, when rightly used, it enables man to grasp reality with clarity and to see that reality free from glamor and the illusions of the three worlds. When the intuition functions in any human being, he is enabled to take direct and correct action for he is in touch with the Plan, with pure and unadulterated fact and undistorted ideas - free from illusion and coming direct from the divine or universal Mind. The unfoldment of this faculty will bring about a world recognition of the Plan and this is the greatest achievement of the intuition in this present world cycle. When that Plan is sensed, there comes the realization of the unity of all beings, of the synthesis of world evolution and of the unity of the divine objective. All life and all forms are seen then in their true perspective; a right sense of values and of time then eventuates. When the Plan is truly intuited and at first hand, then constructive effort becomes inevitable and there is no lost motion. It is the partial realization of the Plan and its interpretation at second or third hand by the ignorant which is responsible for the wasted effort and the foolish impulses which characterize the present occult and world organizations. [26]

The various groups in a Master's Ashram can fulfil certain functions and provide laboratories for specified work. Some can provide a demonstration laboratory of the trained observers of the world and can handle world glamor and illusion. Other groups can focus on the development of the telepathic faculty and become trained communicators. The objective before the Hierarchy at this time is to break and dissipate the world glamor. This has to happen on a world scale just as it happens in the life of every disciple. Just as a man shifts his focus of consciousness (when on the Path of Discipleship) on to the mental plane and learns to smash the glamor which has hitherto held him on the astral plane, so the problem before the Hierarchy today is to bring about a similar happening in the life of humanity as a whole, for humanity is at the cross roads and its consciousness is being rapidly focused on the mental plane. A death blow must be struck at the world illusion for it holds the sons of men in thrall. By learning to break through the glamor in their own lives and to live in the light of the intuition, disciples can strengthen the hands of those whose task it is to awaken the intuition in man. There are many and different kinds of glamor and disciples are frequently surprised when they learn what is regarded as glamor by the Masters. I will enumerate a few of the more general glamors for you, leaving you to make any needed application and expansion of the idea from the individual to humanity as a whole. Here are the names of some of these glamors:

  1. The glamor of destiny. This is a glamor which indicates to the one whom it controls that he has important work to do and that he must speak and work as destined. This feeds a pride which has no foundation in fact.
  2. The glamor of aspiration. Those thus conditioned are completely satisfied and preoccupied with their aspiration towards the light and rest back upon the fact that they are aspirants. Such people need to move onward on to the Path of Discipleship and cease their preoccupation and satisfaction with their spiritual ambitions and goals.
  3. The glamor of self-assurance or of what might be called the astral principles of the disciple. This is the belief, [27] in plain language, that the disciple regards that his point of view is entirely right. This again feeds pride and tends to make the disciple believe himself to be an authority and infallible. It is the background of the theologian.
  4. The glamor of duty. This leads to an over-emphasis of the sense of responsibility, producing lost motion and the emphasis of the non-essential.
  5. The glamor of environing conditions, leading frequently to a sense of frustration, or of futility or of importance.
  6. The glamor of the mind and of its efficiency and its capacity to deal with any or every problem. This leads inevitably to isolation and loneliness.
  7. The glamor of devotion, leading to an undue stimulation of the astral body. The man or woman thus glamored sees only one idea, one person, one authority and one aspect of truth. It feeds fanaticism and spiritual pride.
  8. The glamor of desire with its reflex action upon the physical body. This leads to a constant condition of fighting and of turmoil. It negates all peace and fruitful work and must some day be brought to an end.
  9. The glamor of personal ambition.

There are many other glamors, both individual and worldwide, but these will serve to indicate a general tendency.
