Your values are truer than they were a few years ago. The small social amenities and theDiscipleship1, 341:though ancient habits still persist. Twenty years ago you were governed by social considerations;Discipleship1, 343:that which I am  seeking to do?

Eight years ago it was thus over-emphasized.

Let me tell you now that three years ago, I viewed your condition with questioningDiscipleship1, 368:this life and would (for the remainder of your years on earth) simply hold that which has beenDiscipleship1, 382:You are evidencing a purpose which the past two years have enabled you to make objective. NOTE: W.Discipleship1, 382:TO D. P. R. January 1933 BROTHER OF MINE: For years you have been working with steadfastness andDiscipleship1, 382:for discipleship has worked with persistency for years, his life tendency becomes oriented towardsDiscipleship1, 383:expression holds much for you, if the coming years are taken joyously and with high expectancy. YouDiscipleship1, 383:has gone. The ties through attachment over many years hold firm and on the physical plane they mustDiscipleship1, 393:more bravely the life of the sannyasin. Two years ago I could not have spoken thus, for you wouldDiscipleship1, 395:you, has had a long period (extending over many years) of strain, incident to environingDiscipleship1, 396:and the glamor of futility (after so many years as a disciple) is seeking to swing him off theDiscipleship1, 398:inner progress than in the previous three years, and that my heart, as I watch your steps upon theDiscipleship1, 401:You have been much occupied for many years with the cares of a great business Organization and yourDiscipleship1, 401:of a physical body which has been used for many years. I say to you, therefore: Face the futureDiscipleship1, 415:of acquired knowledge. But you have been many years in touch with my work and - in spite of all youDiscipleship1, 425:show, they do not give the entire picture. Five years ago you evidenced much spiritual pride; youDiscipleship1, 436:complicate your mind in any way. The past three years have brought to you many changes - some ofDiscipleship1, 438:a very real problem which you have faced for years and must continue to face. This present cycle orDiscipleship1, 441:will remember the three words I gave you some years ago which were to be the keynotes of your life?Discipleship1, 441:of your life? The patience you have for long years sustained; the service to your fellowmen inDiscipleship1, 441:O. I. August 1936 BROTHER OF MINE: For some few years now you have been definitely orientingDiscipleship1, 450:much and unfolded much during the past two years. There are still areas of unresolved doubts andDiscipleship1, 458:know. But you have learnt much these past two years, both about yourself and others, andDiscipleship1, 465:and who are, at the same time, far from young in years is that of facing the last decade or so ofDiscipleship1, 465:of physical limitations. So many in the final years of life live, think and act in such a mannerDiscipleship1, 473:more of yourself. You have more to give than two years ago. Give of what you have gained and loseDiscipleship1, 477:progress. You have stood steady under several years of strain and difficulty and you have notDiscipleship1, 477:from your allegiance to your soul. Nor will you. Years ago you pledged yourself to tread the Path;Discipleship1, 484:wrestled to discover and develop during many years of difficulty. I believe that you yourself willDiscipleship1, 496:MY BROTHER: You have been close to me for many years, even though you belong, in reality, to theDiscipleship1, 496:me to help you - a brother on the same ray. For years you have been associated with me and willDiscipleship1, 496:a constructive influence during the last few years, but you were too lazy to do so. You do theDiscipleship1, 502:One of the keywords which I gave you several years ago was decentralization and that quality, theDiscipleship1, 509:instructions I have given you during the past years and - on some quiet day - read them throughDiscipleship1, 510:it another year? May I (who have looked on for years at your struggle and who today feel certain ofDiscipleship1, 513:indicates the measure of your achievement. Two years ago, you might have recognized theoreticallyDiscipleship1, 516:greater than you suspect and which we tested out years ago. You have steadily held to the Path andDiscipleship1, 517:to you. But I do say to you that the remaining years of your life can be a gradual drifting into aDiscipleship1, 518:to dissipate glamor in your life this past two years, more than perhaps you realize. We, who lookDiscipleship1, 518:care for a child cannot persist into adult years. There may be a responsibility which one choosesDiscipleship1, 519:of the kingdom of the spirit. For the remaining years of your life lay the emphasis upon yourDiscipleship1, 522:would prove for you a major healing factor. For years, my brother, I have referred frequently toDiscipleship1, 522:plane. Much you have learned during the past years and though old rhythms and thought habits oftenDiscipleship1, 524:your attitude now and your attitude thirty years ago is that then you did not realize what it wasDiscipleship1, 524:of ties and relationships has held you for years. The personality umbilical cord still links you toDiscipleship1, 524:have been severed (and rightly severed) several years ago. It would have been of real benefit bothDiscipleship1, 525:recognize - a loving heart, a mind enriched by years of study and lives of service, and by aDiscipleship1, 530:(Old Aleck, a saintly old gardener, these many years dead, may be one who helps with this work.

There has been for many years an exterior hardness, but the time is nearDiscipleship1, 545:To this, you have been no exception. For two years now you have been tested, consciously orDiscipleship1, 545:not employed. You are entering now upon a few years of intensified training. For this you must beDiscipleship1, 551:knew from the start that K. E. S. had only a few years to live. In his last instruction he uses theDiscipleship1, 551:R. D.

You have known for years that such a tie exists. You have oft wonderedDiscipleship1, 560:into increased usefulness during the past three years, and I know well your determination thatDiscipleship1, 569:is hard to learn - particularly for you, after years of self-centered life. In order to aid you inDiscipleship1, 572:their own peculiar problems. The formative first years hold in them those testing difficultiesDiscipleship1, 574:That should be the prime effort for many years to come of all true aspirants in all esotericDiscipleship1, 582:at this time? There is just a certain span of years ahead of you at the age which you have nowDiscipleship1, 586:that you have wasted quite a number of years in criticizing your co-disciples and your earnestDiscipleship1, 588:these two questions are as follows: For several years and more, you have consistently taken theDiscipleship1, 594:whom they will gather around them in coming years, and, also the strengthening of the inner rhythmDiscipleship1, 596:in mind the fact that your life - up to three years ago - has been an exemplification of excessiveDiscipleship1, 596:will know today how just this criticism is. Four years ago, I could not have thus addressed you,Discipleship1, 596:have chosen to play your part. You have three years in which to make the effort by means of whichDiscipleship1, 596:of fusion is established by the time fifty-six years of age is attained, it is seldom establishedDiscipleship1, 597:yourself in the teaching they contain for years. Now practice the truths learnt thereby. Instead,Discipleship1, 598:and hindrances have to go. You have for years been like a man standing in a room with his back toDiscipleship1, 599:of personality limitations covering many years. That has a temporary value, provided you again turnDiscipleship1, 602:harshness in an effort to bring to an end your years of personality fog and deep seated ambition.Discipleship1, 602:kindness and also with a sense of urgency. The years slip by; those who look on at the lives ofDiscipleship1, 612:not the work to which you pledged yourself in years gone by.
