Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - I.S.G-L.
October 1936


This has been a year of inner expansion for you and one which has brought you an increased capacity to see the vision with clarity. One of the goals for all true seekers is the development of "true insight" and this is becoming a nearer goal for you. You will know within yourself to what I am referring.

As you know I find it useful to indicate to all in my group [219] of pledged disciples their five determining or conditioning rays so that they can work with intelligence at the fusion of

  1. The various personality rays.
  2. The personality ray with the soul ray.

There are two major factors of paramount interest to all aspirants and - in your case - the task is made somewhat difficult because you have to add to these two tasks the work of shifting your soul ray from the sixth Ray of Devotion to the second Ray of Love-Wisdom. This is not an easy thing to do without an interlude of intense difficulty and of energy disruption, accompanied oft with loss of personality balance. You have, however, nearly completed the task and the worst part of the process is over. It had primarily a physiological effect upon you which showed itself in the difficulty you had a couple of years ago. At that time, as you know, I endeavored to help you. That condition is now definitely ameliorated. The psychological implications are to be found in the transference of the psychical energy you wield from the solar plexus center to the heart center. In terms of living expression, this means that you can transmute devotion into love, and idealism into proven wisdom. Is not this your immediate aim, my brother?

As you know, your soul ray is the second ray, for your basic nature is essentially love-wisdom. Your personality ray is the first, the Ray of Will or Power. That has been for a long time subordinated to the past ray of your soul, that of devotion to the soul, to the Hierarchy, to humanity as well as to yourself. Your problem of personality emphasis has changed from that of the continuous impressing of your personality attitudes, ideas and desires upon your environment (as was the case in your last life) to an occasional cyclic and almost violent emphasis upon some individual. This is now only occasional (relatively speaking). You are learning to leave others free - a hard lesson for a first ray personality, animated as yours is by knowledge and goodwill.

The ray of your mental body is also the first ray. This means that your intelligent mind can dominate at need and can be far more powerful in expression than it usually is. It is always an interesting and an easy matter for the soul to control and [220] illumine the mind when the first and the second rays are as closely related as they can be in your case.

As your emotional body is, however, on the sixth ray (as was your soul when you came into incarnation) it is there that the emphasis of the soul has been and there has been for you the line of least resistance. Now the line of least resistance should be the mind, and your major objective in life and in meditation should be the mind, and increased illumination - this in order to render increased service to your fellowmen. Hence the meditation which I have outlined for you and which I would ask you to follow. It is brief and powerful.

Your physical body is also on the first ray, so you can see how powerful a combination you have for service, if you can truly comprehend your problem and work with a sense of synthesis. It is not so much the mystical union, my brother, to which you should aspire for that is progressively proceeding, but an intensified illumination of the concrete mind. Therefore, your rays are as follows:

  1. The soul ray - the second Ray of Love-Wisdom.
  2. The personality ray - the first Ray of Power or Will.
  3. The ray of the mind - the first Ray of Power.
  4. The ray of the astral body - the sixth Ray of Devotion.
  5. The ray of the physical body - the first Ray of Power.

It is this powerful first ray combination of forces in your equipment which has produced the emotional instability of which you have ever been conscious. But the shift of your soul energy on to the second ray will now most definitely offset this and lead to a condition of focused stability. This will probably also better your physical condition.

I would ask you to do the following brief exercise:

  1. Endeavor to focus yourself in the light of the soul through the practice of alignment. You must realize:
    1. The soul is light.
    2. Light is reflected in the mind.
    3. Then automatically you become one of the Light bearers.
    4. The light shineth in a dark place. [221]
  2. Make a conscious alignment then of the vehicles with the soul, holding these thoughts in mind.
  3. Then, consciously, hold the mind steady in the Light.
  4. Give five minutes to:
    1. A dedication of the personality to the service of the Light.
    2. The assuming of the responsibility of a Light bearer.
    3. Seeing the Hierarchy of Servers with which you are definitely affiliated as a powerhouse of Light.
  5. Give five minutes to meditation. Note down any thoughts which may come into your mind on the beam of light from your soul.
