|Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - W.O.I.|
BROTHER OF MINE:
In dealing with you as an integral part of my Ashram, I have for the first time since you were admitted into this group relation a sense of freedom in approaching you. You have learned much and unfolded much during the past two years. There are still areas of unresolved doubts and the presence of many questions in your mind, but your attitude towards them is definitely changed. You are not so sure and you are entirely willing to wait for, and later to put to the proof, the answers and the solutions. That is much to have achieved.
Matters in the world today are in great confusion, owing to the appalling disturbance and condition of the astral plane. Though world affairs seem to be bad enough upon the physical plane, they are nothing to be compared to the present level of awareness where glamor rules, where desire and aspiration are rampant and where those on the inner side (who possess the eye of vision) can see the turmoil and the whirlpool of terrific forces, seeking violent outlet upon the physical plane.
Broadly speaking, these forces can be met in three ways. There is the long and almost endless process of letting things work themselves out under evolutionary law, leaving to the inevitability of evolution and of law the stemming of the astral cataract and the quieting of the hurricane. In the meantime, millions would suffer needlessly and for too long, which is perhaps the most important point. That the process of patient waiting in idealistic and prayerful idleness would finally triumph is incontrovertible but to what avail, if humanity is too  worn out and too exhausted and too retarded and hindered by a retrogressive materialistic civilization to profit by the long awaited turn of the tide in human affairs?
I, a member of the Hierarchy who necessarily knows more than you do, tell you today that humanity as a whole (distributed over the entire planet) has endured already its full quota of karma and that what may come now of grief, sorrow and pain is that which may prove too much. Just as there is a point in the life of the individual where he can stand no more but lapses into unconsciousness, loses his reason, or dies, so it can be equally true of mankind as a whole. Bear this in mind. It is to this that those who would take no steps to arrest disaster (because they believe in what they call the will of God or karmic retribution or some beloved ideal) would condemn humanity. I am endeavoring here to give you the wider picture as we see it and so to answer some of the problems of your rightly questioning mind. There is a general principle of timing involved and of the right moments for action as well as those moments in which inaction is the correct approach.
Then there is the second possibility in which the world situation can be handled and solved in terms of force - the force to be applied being evoked under the law of action and reaction, and then utilized by those who see the vision of the future and the larger picture and issues, and who are pledged to the releasing of humanity. It is not force (as applied upon the physical plane) which is at any time wrong; it is the motive and method used, leading to and governing the use of force which are the factors of momentous import. Though no person or group of persons or nation at this time knows the meaning of motive (for that is only really known and comprehended by those who have advanced beyond the third initiation) yet there are persons, groups of persons and nations in the world today who can be permitted to use force against forms and materialism because of the preponderance of pure motive to be found present in their consciousness. The right use of obstructing and of death-dealing energy can be trusted to those who are consciously endeavoring to help humanity and to liberate it, as a whole and not as a part. This must naturally include themselves and is safe, provided that the voices of those who see the  vision of the future are given free expression and permitted a hearing. There is, therefore, in this method the probability of a quicker ending of the present conflict and world crisis and the consequent release of the new order.
The third way has in it much of danger to the unfolding consciousness of humanity and that is the way of divine intervention. With this I do not intend to deal as I said all that I find it possible to say in connection with the new Invocation.
My brother, there are points which revolve in your mind and which, in spite of the application which is obvious, can all three be applied to situations and conditions which exist between individuals, families and groups or to the larger unit, the world.
Those of you who are in a position to aid unfolding minds, as you are today, and who possess fifth ray personalities as you do, can affect many minds and lay the foundation for lives and activities based upon right thought. It is in your field of activity that the world must eventually find the instruction which will lead to right action, based on right understanding of the Plan, and to a right handling of the younger generation (a thing hitherto totally unknown). In this way, the world may be remodeled by wise planning, placed will (if such a phrase means anything to you. It involves conscious focus) and increased activity and momentum. But such right activity will only be possible and the desired ends hastened when people of your generation and opportunity can - in this interlude between the old order and the new - think with clarity, see the issues clearly and in their true relativity, and can inspire the young ones also to see.
The process of expanding your consciousness to grasp the larger issue is never easy, particularly with a fifth ray personality and a sixth ray astral body. That is why you have a mental body which is conditioned by the fourth ray; your battle for vision and inclusiveness must be fought out in the mind and on realized mental levels; that is for you definitely a mental issue. Your task is to link the emotional and the intuitional nature and so evoke spiritual sensitivity to revelation. To that, you must add the conscious bringing through of the unfolding light into the area of the physical brain, thus making what  you know and see available to others. This must be done in three ways:
You will see, therefore, why I have dealt with the world problem; you can only achieve a steady, forward-looking attitude and really work at future stabilization and reconstruction from the vantage ground of your own ascertained and controlled beliefs.
I am not going to give you an ordinary, set meditation to follow. I am going to ask you to give fifteen minutes intensive thought each day to the problem of the future, asking you, first of all, to achieve as stable a measure of alignment as you can, to raise your consciousness to as high a level of awareness as possible, and then to take the three following topics into your reflections, dealing with them in two ways:
I will, therefore, give you three such topics:
I would like you to give nine months to this work, giving three months to each of these world topics. If I might suggest,  my brother, I would like to see you give two months to reflection, meditation and mental activity on the theme of the period, and then (during the third month) I would have you reduce your ideas to form and on paper. Will you do this nine months' work for the aiding of your group usefulness in the world, for use and aid by many others and for me? I put these incentives in the order of their importance.
There is an unusual depth of love and understanding in your nature. Give of it freely to all.
NOTE: This disciple severed his relation with the group because he felt that the Tibetan failed to appreciate what the group was doing. It was his own doing and the door stands open for his return whenever he so desires.
