|Discipleship in the New Age II - Personal Instructions to Disciples - I.A.P.|
I have seemed to you perhaps to have been silent and to have left you somewhat to yourself. Such is not, however, the case in reality. You have walked ever under my watchful eye, but there was little that I could do until you had somewhat broken the "intent to loneliness" with which your personality has so constantly met the advances of your soul. This personality reaction you are learning rapidly, as a conscious soul, to repudiate. Loneliness, isolation, a sense of being deserted and a separateness (based on sensitivity in most cases) distinguish the first ray disciple, until he learns to preserve his divine sense of "unified identity" whilst merging, at the same time, with others. This again you are learning to do.
You have had by no means an easy time, my brother. You have tuned in on world distress and are discovering yourself doing so with increasing and oft distressing frequency. Thus are the sons of God trained and brought to the point of detached and spiritually oriented servers.
I would like to take this opportunity to express to you my appreciation (if such an inadequate word is aught but  meaningless!) of the constant and untiring service to the Plan which you have so ceaselessly rendered. You have for years - ever since you first returned to Spain, and later in the place of your present abode - undeviatingly followed the path of ceaseless, constant service. You have reached and have helped many. I would have you know that we are not unmindful; I would have you realize that the work which you do is planned by us and that your task is to render yourself sensitive to our "impression." This developed sensitivity is ever a difficult task for the first ray person. They prefer to stand alone and to generate within themselves the plans which they consider fitted for the type of service which they seek to render. But today disciples are learning that a fused and organized and blended plan or scheme of worldwide service is required, and that a master Plan of the Hierarchy must be carried out, and that into this Plan all disciples, including you, must endeavor to fit.
Have you studied with care the six statements I gave you a year ago? I want today to call your attention to the third statement; this set of words should condition your planning for the future, particularly the sentence: "Older threads of planning must later be regrasped." You started work for us in another country. Your major karmic destiny lies there, even if you return not there physically or for any length of time. The Plan must be served. I would ask you to prepare to re-establish the work you started, once the war in Europe is over. I would ask you to prepare to locate there again, if necessary, and to begin by communicating with as many as you can who earlier worked with you, seeking again to get in touch with all of them and along the original spiritual lines. I did not say along the original organized lines. I would ask you to do so at first in a definitely personal manner, writing friendly and personal letters and ascertaining the news and the condition of those who earlier worked with you as members of the Arcane School. They will form the nucleus of the spiritual work we seek to do and which you can aid greatly in re-establishing.
The work of salvaging Europe, spiritually and psychologically, which is our main preoccupation, must go on. It  must be entirely divorced from politics and partisanships, and I am asking all of you who are my pledged workers to move forward in this spiritual undertaking. Your link with the Master R. should help you much in taking adequate action in cooperation with A.A.B. and F.B. The triangle of force thus formed is strengthened by its link with my Brother, R. Where Spain is concerned, the picture is as follows:
You will note here the direct line of spiritual force descending from the Master R., via D.K. to yourself, with F.B. and A.A.B. standing by as protecting agents on either side. They aid and sponsor all your efforts.
Much will be opening up rapidly now in the field of European assistance, and for this, in your place and sphere, you must begin to prepare. The spiritual demand of humanity is great and the need to be met is gigantic, but you have the equipment and enough surviving links in that ancient peninsula (where your work began) to salvage some remnants of the School and thus reconstitute a spiritual focal point in that land. Begin, therefore, to lay your plans. Write letters. Locate your students. Establish contact, and step by step, the way will open up before you and the work to be done will clarify. Count on your inner strength and rely on your inner spiritual contacts. Feel not futile or inadequate to the task, for in these days of urgent distress the aid given to - and consequently by - one disciple is greatly intensified and increased.
one suggestion I would here make to you personally. On receipt of this instruction, will you take a full month for the establishing of such a close contact with your own soul that love, enthusiasm, wisdom and certain fundamental spiritual  recognitions (which must ever condition the life of an accepted disciple) will flood your whole being? Day by day link up with your soul; day by day pledge yourself to the work to be undertaken; day by day seek a deepened relation with me, with my Ashram, and with your group brothers; day by day investigate your service as rendered up to date in the searchlight of the soul, and then, my brother, with my aid and blessing go forward, recognized by us as one of our spiritual assets. Work to bring the light of love and of spiritual orientation to those whom you are called to serve - in the place where you now are, and increasingly in the future in the place of your earlier service. Again, I recall to you the closing words of the second statement: Lean on your soul.
I assign to you no particular meditation. I believe that the group meditation will give you all you need along this line, and the reflection upon emerging opportunity and the planning for the reopening work will suffice to provide due expression for thought, for holding the mind steady in the light, and for the required meditative concentration.
My instructions to you are occupied with the theme of work, are they not, my brother? But that, to you, is life. It is needless for me to tell you that the success of the coming reorganization and the success of your spiritual effort will be largely dependent upon the depth of your individual spiritual focus, the closeness of your link with your own soul, and the recognition of your "attachment" (technically speaking) to my Ashram. These are the A B C of your relationship to me as an accepted disciple.
Until such time as your outer course of action appears clearer to you, and until the way opens up for a resumption of work, earlier started, you have two things therefore to do. I am but summarizing.
The future ahead of my workers and the work to be done which will emanate from my Ashram is one of great activity. The plans are outlined and the work assigned is clearly proposed. I receive my instructions from a "joint committee" of the spiritual leaders behind the world scene; they are the senior members of the Hierarchy, working under the Christ. They arrive at their decisions after due consultation with senior workers, such as myself - Masters and initiates above the third initiation. Thus the work becomes fused and blended, and the entire Hierarchy, at a time of crisis such as the present, is swung into one unified activity. From that point of focused intention each then proceeds to carry out the Plan, via their Ashram, and thus the work makes its impact upon the outer world.
I explain this to you as you are preparing to become an ever more intimate member in the "circle of the Ashram" which guards the heart of the hierarchical life.
With courage and with determination, my brother and my friend, move forward upon the Lighted Way.
