Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - J.W.K-P.
January 1940


The pressure of the work is heavy upon you and it still remains. I have no particular instruction to give you at this time because what has been initiated will achieve its own momentum and travel towards its inevitable conclusion. I will [171] only add that the effort you are making to meet the demands of the work which I have outlined, draws forth my approval and - if persisted in - should prove of prolonged service to humanity. I would ask you to note the word "prolonged" because you are building for the future and, in the future, the true significance of accomplishment will be yours. Proceed, therefore, with patience, with skill in action and with an unmoved persistence.

In reference to the work of fusion at which you must arrive in connection with your bodily forces and your soul energy, I would call your attention to the fact that your soul energy is focused in your physical equipment, thus bringing together the energy of your soul and the force of your seventh ray brain. There is, consequently, a direct alignment between soul and brain and this must be deepened, understood and utilized. Your personality energy (which is of the second ray) is focused in your fourth ray mind. This leaves your astral body as a unity - by itself, from our standpoint of consideration - and this is, in your case, as it should be. You have a powerful astral body of sufficiently poised control to proceed with the task and the solution of personal relationships, without the undue pressure of personality reactions. Some day a study will be made of the fact that practically all reactions are of an astral or emotional nature, except the reactions of the physical mechanism to the outer tangible environment. This is not yet sufficiently noted by orthodox psychology. The reactions of the personality to the soul and of the astral body to the subjective life are of vital interest to the esotericist.

The fusion must, therefore, be made between the mind and the brain, each of which expresses one of the two major energies. That fusion already partially exists. When it is consummated, the mental goal of harmony through conflict will be superseded by the inflow of love, working with power through the brain and (incidentally) your general physical health will speedily improve. How shall this be brought about, my brother? The first stage is one of real difficulty, particularly to first ray people. It comes through the power of visualization. That is why ritual is of value to such as you and Masonry - being on the first ray and emanating, consequently, from Shamballa - aids the process of visualization. It gives color and [172] performance of a tangible kind to inner, subjective activity. Visualization is a powerful agent in the evocation of the creative imagination. Let me here give you a hint. If you use this idea in the planning of the work which you seek to do for the Hierarchy and for which we are seeking to hold you responsible, and if you carry into all that work the ideal of ritual, of rhythm and of energy distribution, you will evoke a synthetic pattern, a unified procedure and a harmonious working out of the Plan.

Therefore, I would ask you to give ten minutes each day to the pictorial visualization of your entire work and program. See each phase of it as a lotus of living beauty, connected with all the other phases by lines of fiery energy, thus bringing all parts of it into one whole. All the different phases will form a great unity of light and love, expressing itself through the will-to-good. Be not sidetracked when doing this. Use the building energy of your second ray personality and the seventh ray energy of your brain, because through your brain, your first ray soul energy is expressing itself. You do not here consciously work as a soul. You work with as much soul energy as can express itself at any given time through your brain. If you worked with pure soul energy and from soul levels, you would bring in too much of the Shamballa force for the delicate structure with which you are dealing.

Precede all that you do with a definite effort to bring about the following alignments and in the following order:

  1. The alignment of all personality forces with the energy of the personality, focused in the mind nature. This means an aligned personality with the focus of the attention in the intellect.
  2. The alignment of the personality with the soul. This means bringing the mind - which is focusing all the lower energies - into direct relation with the soul.
  3. The alignment of soul and brain. This is brought about by dropping the personality and all its forces out of your consciousness altogether and relating soul and brain by an act of the will.

When you have done this, then swing back into the mind nature and, focused there, proceed with the work of visualization, as I have above suggested. Build your picture stage by stage. [173]

Go forward with courage, hope and joy, plus understanding, my brother. Train those who work with you with painstaking care, for much depends upon them. Remember always that you do not work alone.

NOTE: This disciple is still actively engaged in the Tibetan's work.
