In the early stages, therefore, of a disciple's work, it is possible that there is littleDiscipleship1, 694:that there is little or nothing that the disciple will be able to contribute of any kind for a longDiscipleship1, 694:definite soul impressions and impulses which the disciple may succeed in evoking (throughDiscipleship1, 696:effective. The important thing for an accepted disciple to grasp is what the Master is seeking toDiscipleship1, 696:finally, the enquiry, in the mind of the disciple, as to whether he thinks, focuses and works alongDiscipleship1, 696:similar to that of the Master. How close is the disciple to the Master's thoughts? The Master isDiscipleship1, 696:with his. He may not impose his will upon the disciple; his desires, aspirations and wishes mustDiscipleship1, 696:he feels should be done. But it remains for the disciple to decide and prove. Disciples are in aDiscipleship1, 697:To this reservoir of pure thought, every pledged disciple is asked to make his contribution and, ifDiscipleship1, 697:within the center which we call humanity. The disciple now naturally and rightly questions howDiscipleship1, 697:to the fact that it is instinct which leads a disciple to respond to a Master's call or note, toDiscipleship1, 698:of the Ashram is dependent upon the power of the disciple to focus and raise the conscious mind, toDiscipleship1, 698:upon the mental plane, the measure of the disciple's understanding of the Plan, and his [699]Discipleship1, 700:It is immediately obvious that the work of the disciple is, therefore, almost entirely within theDiscipleship1, 700:enters the laboratory or experimental stage.

From the angle of the disciple, a force (which is himself) is brought intoDiscipleship1, 701:fact of his relation to them. The individual disciple has, therefore, to watch the effect of threeDiscipleship1, 702:[702] Those transmuted forces which come to the disciple from the Master or are definitelyDiscipleship1, 702:or Monad) reflects himself in or inspires the disciple (soul) and the latter is thus enabled toDiscipleship1, 702:carried forward as seem best to the individual disciple, under the "impression of the Master" andDiscipleship1, 703:ever the Master, or else an initiate or a world disciple. His task is to blend and fuse theDiscipleship1, 703:the soul and its vision is to the individual disciple, working in his personality vehicles. It isDiscipleship1, 704:and the training which it gives is to enable the disciple to live truly on every plane which he hasDiscipleship1, 705:and to work purely on mental levels. There the disciple is focused in his lower mind, butDiscipleship1, 705:response, and so meet the need of those the disciple is seeking to help and strengthen. TheDiscipleship1, 706:of facts is one of the first duties of a disciple; In the task of aiding humanity, as a part of theDiscipleship1, 706:of the Masters; there is little that the average disciple can do for them in molding their thoughtDiscipleship1, 706:easily be done because the personality of the disciple will provide an open door of approach. ButDiscipleship1, 706:But they are far stronger than the average disciple and the task would, therefore, be one ofDiscipleship1, 708:the Master in the early stages of training his disciple is to bring to an end the period of theDiscipleship1, 708:disciple is to bring to an end the period of the disciple's intense preoccupation with himself,Discipleship1, 708:and with a feeling of complete destitution. The disciple needs to bear in mind that he has toDiscipleship1, 709:is also a mystic, an occultist, a psychic and a disciple. And - because of all these acquiredDiscipleship1, 709:emanates from the world of meaning in which the disciple is learning to live consciously andDiscipleship1, 709:by penetrating to the "world of meaning," the disciple discovers that he can enter into the firstDiscipleship1, 709:Master has to do, and not from the angle of the disciple's work. There has been so much written onDiscipleship1, 709:written on that subject from the angle of the disciple and so many books put out on the subjectDiscipleship1, 709:effort to understand has been focused upon the disciple and his problems of character andDiscipleship1, 710:stage to that of adept.

This, you will note is a somewhat newDiscipleship1, 711:- Part IV Basically and essentially, the disciple's attitude is not really of much importance inDiscipleship1, 712:factors are established - even if unknown to the disciple in his waking consciousness - the grip ofDiscipleship1, 712:we shall be dealing: The stage, wherein the disciple is contacted by the Master through some chelaDiscipleship1, 712:of Little Chelaship. The stage wherein a higher disciple directs the chela from egoic or soulDiscipleship1, 712:his appreciation of the Master's problem, the disciple is taught how (in an emergency) to attractDiscipleship1, 713:the Thread, or Sutratma. The stage wherein the disciple is permitted to know the method whereby heDiscipleship1, 713:would prompt them to use it. At this stage, the disciple is called a Chela within the aura. TheDiscipleship1, 713:a Chela within the aura. The stage wherein the disciple can get his Master's ear at any time. He isDiscipleship1, 715:an aspirant is to relate him to a more advanced disciple who will lead him gradually onward andDiscipleship1, 715:help he needs. The reason for this is that the disciple is closer to the aspirant, far fromDiscipleship1, 716:of instability but is carefully watched by the disciple who has transcended this particular stageDiscipleship1, 716:the Master begins to take over his training. The disciple is now, irrevocably and finally, ready.Discipleship1, 717:of accepted discipleship. No Master accepts a disciple and takes him into his Ashram in whom theDiscipleship1, 717:reached; isolated individuality is that of the disciple; isolated identity (with the soul) is thatDiscipleship1, 717:isolated identity (with the soul) is that of the disciple up to and including the third initiation.Discipleship1, 718:a fusion and a blending process between the disciple and the soul (and eventually between humanityDiscipleship1, 720:for firm action where need arises, because the disciple has a long range vision and is not misledDiscipleship1, 720:the "spirit of relationship," beginning with the disciple's own self, his family and immediateDiscipleship1, 720:and render effective this fiery stimulation, the disciple must apply the fire to himself and in theDiscipleship1, 721:Masters are, therefore, anxious to "burn up the disciple in the fire of the will-to-love so that heDiscipleship1, 723:(based on certain charts) from the senior disciple who has the neophyte in charge.

This means that a criticizing disciple has reached the point where his judgment is soDiscipleship1, 725:effect in his own life or that of his fellow disciple. It is simply a loving recognition ofDiscipleship1, 725:and provide points for discussion. The disciple or aspirant who has glaring faults and who fails toDiscipleship1, 726:of the task of karmic adjustment, the guiding disciple is governed by certain requirements. He mustDiscipleship1, 726:themselves, voluntarily and by free choice. The disciple seeks to do certain things in thisDiscipleship1, 726:as well as bad. It is the task of the helping disciple to guide the chela in the Light so that heDiscipleship1, 726:that he does adjust his karma. This the senior disciple does by thought impression. All karma, whenDiscipleship1, 726:is perhaps the major lesson which the senior disciple has to teach the neophyte. In this way theDiscipleship1, 726:"in the light" which falls upon his way, and the disciple who is preparing him for the stage ofDiscipleship1, 727:In the symbolic charts which the guiding disciple presents to the Master twice a year, the effortDiscipleship1, 727:determine the time for authorizing the senior disciple to recommend the stage of acceptedDiscipleship1, 727:When the demand of the aspirant, the guiding disciple's recommendation, the karmic condition andDiscipleship1, 728:you to think. The term, therefore, of Accepted Disciple covers the stages of the first and secondDiscipleship1, 728:of the first and second initiations; when a disciple has taken the third initiation, he is noDiscipleship1, 728:he is no longer technically an accepted disciple, even though he still remains in a Master's groupDiscipleship1, 728:instructions. The point of importance to each disciple in an Ashram is whether he can step up hisDiscipleship1, 729:fire of the will-to-love can flow through the disciple. The point to be grasped is that the work ofDiscipleship1, 729:on and with the work to be done. An individual disciple may suffer in his personality as a resultDiscipleship1, 733:more usually the experience of the probationary disciple.
