|On Distribution of Force; Blood Transfusion
of two questions, you have several. Let me list them for you so that you will see what I
mean, and for clarity in replying. Several of these questions are inferred and not
definitely posited, but if I am to deal with them they must be put in the form of
questions and even then the subject is so vast that there will not be time.
- How can a
more harmonious distribution of force be accomplished for the benefic of all?
- Can you give
us some more specific instructions and indicate to us some esoteric methods, suitable to
our stage of development in connection with this problem of distribution?
- Has the fact
of blood transfusion...any correspondence in some process of the transfusion of subtle
energies on the inner planes?
- Are there
some special means, besides what we are already trying to do, by which those of us who are
on the second ray could more effectively transfuse our love quality into brothers on the
first ray, and vice versa?
- What is the
interrelation and the cooperation among the ray lives and particularly between the first
and second ray entities?
- How can the
example of the close cooperation and friendship between the Master M. and the Master K. H.
be of practical help and inspiration to us?
see from the above how impossible it will be to deal with this wide range of subjects. I
will, however, give you the briefest answers to some of them, or indicate the line along
which your ideas may flow.
question is somewhat answered in the above brief statement. I am doing what I can in my
personal instructions (Discipleship in the New Age, Vol. I. and II.) to all of
you to bring about two things:
- A harmonious
distribution of forces varies in its arrangement and consequently in its outer effect not
only  according to ray types but according to the age of the soul, and the individual
status upon the Path. There is a difference in this arrangement in the subtle bodies of
the probationary disciple and of the accepting disciple, and of the accepted disciple and
for each grade upon the path of initiation. This arrangement is brought about in three
ways or is subject to three forms of developing influences.
- Through the
life of aspiration, as registered in the physical brain consciousness.
- Through the
spontaneous awakening of the centers and in their right geometrical progression. This I
have referred to in some of my books, but more cannot be given as it is one of the secrets
of the first initiation. The rearranging and the readjustment proceeds during the whole
period of the Path, technically understood.
- Through the
decentralization of the whole inner conscious life. The server becomes:
- The mystical extrovert.
- The "one who steps aside from the center."
- The "one who lives upon the periphery of the heart."
- The "one who hovers over the central lotus."
- The "distant one who sees from far away, yet lives within the form of all that
A study of these descriptive phrases may give you the clue to the right distribution of
transfusion is symbolic of two things: First, that the blood is the life, and secondly,
that there is but one Life permeating all forms, and therefore transferable under right
conditions. It is also a synthetic act of service. Ponder on this.
question gives me an opportunity to point out that even an understanding of, and interest
in, the ray types (as represented for instance in a group) may itself lead to a subtle
separative attitude. There is no necessity for any Son of God in incarnation upon the
physical plane or in the three worlds to "transfuse" his ray quality into his
brother. These ray qualities are shared by all alike, and a brother's own soul - differing
in no way from another soul - will effect the needed transmutation or transfusion into the
personality life. One may facilitate the process by providing those conditions of harmony
and peace wherein a brother is faced with as few contrary attitudes as possible, and where
the interplay of love may produce an effective stimulation. But this is not transfusion.
What exists in you exists in all, and the love quality (above all other qualities) is the dominant
characteristic of all rays.
question is not only one of the mysteries of the occult sciences, but it is of far too
vast a nature in its implications and too complicated a problem for me to deal with in
relationship of the two Masters you mention can be studied in two ways: 
- Clear the field of the personality life so that the higher energies can have freer play.
- Bring about those conditions and orientations which will produce harmony within, and
consequently and equally, harmonious relations without. I would remind you, however, that
the inner harmony of one brother in a group may not be adequate to produce harmony in
another brother or in the group.
- Through a
consideration of the effective working relation which exists between the groups of
disciples working under Them.
- Through a
study of those people (and they are many) who have a first ray personality and a second
ray ego, or vice versa.
In the last
analysis, my brother, we bring about the correct distribution of force, leading to
harmonious relations, when we seek to live selflessly. For the probationer, this means an imposed
selfless activity upon the physical plane. For the accepted disciple, it involves a
life free from all selfish, self-centered emotion, and of these self-pity and
self-dramatization are outstanding examples; for the initiate it means a mental attitude
which is devoid of selfish thought, and free from the dramatizations in thought of the
