Discipleship in the New Age I - Personal Instructions to Disciples - I.B.S.
February 1936

I was correct, was I not, my brother, in telling you in an earlier instruction that changes were to take place in your life and environment and circumstances. You have seen much and traveled much since that time. What has been the gain up to this moment? Do you feel your inner life enriched? Are you less introverted and more self-forgetfully outgoing? Always you went forth to the helping of others but never did you forget your position as the helper; therefore, there was always the unconscious drawing of the one to be helped to you yourself, in a personal sense and frequently a subsequent rebound away from you. Do you lead them now to lose sight of you in the vision of their own souls? [247]

These are questions which you alone can answer and they still hold for you indication of a needed task. Liberation for you lies in submergence in your group of fellow disciples and in the elimination - as I have earlier told you - of your sixth ray fanaticism. Along this latter line you have made much progress and are much to be commended. Now the life of the first Ray of Will or Power must sweep increasingly into prominence. For you, it is not so much the imposition of the will aspect which is needed but the understanding of the Plan and your consequent intelligent cooperation with that Plan. But it is the plan for humanity and not the plan for you as a partner and cooperator with the greater Plan. In your personal reading and study for the coming months, I suggest that you search out all references to the Plan in my books, noting the aspects which are of immediate import and dealing not with the plan for the coming race and for the distant future. Then list briefly and concisely the salient points in the Plan; be not prolix and train yourself to a brevity which in no way negates lucidity.

Proceed with the breathing exercises I assigned you for they are producing in you much needed changes. Adhere closely to my instructions and carry forward the work; it should now be automatic. Note how, in doing so, you are carrying forward three lines of activity simultaneously:

  1. A physical activity....
  2. An imaginative activity which sees the above moving of energy in an ordered rhythm and which visualizes it as being raised.
  3. A thought activity which is subjectively and steadily aware of the dual process and of its objectives. The objectives are to organize the energy body and so order the forces of the body that a mental effect is achieved.

To all these, a fourth activity might be added - that of the Observer, of the soul on its own plane, perceiving or looking on at the development of this triple functioning. Forget not, my brother, that all disciples must learn to be conscious simultaneously on all three planes and to carry on consciously several activities. This exercise should train you in this facility. I would remind you that there is often a deeply scientific [248] raison d'Ítre for the exercises and suggestions which I may give. They may not be apparent to you at first but your ignorance in no way negates the efficacy of that suggested; the inner work of Organization can proceed easily e'en when there is no understanding of the reasons for which it is done.

As to your meditation work, I seek at this time to change it. You have followed for a long time that which I gave you earlier. I now suggest meditation work to be most carefully followed and attempted with due watching of the effects. This entire meditation is to be carried forward in the heart - not in the physical heart but in the heart center between the shoulder blades and in the etheric body. Thought must be kept off this location, however, after the first definite focusing of the consciousness in the etheric body. Here is the meditation:

  1. Alignment with the soul, to be carried forward as rapidly as possible until it becomes eventually almost instantaneous. Then say with deliberation: I am the soul. The soul am I.
  2. Then center your consciousness in the love aspect of your nature, the energy which flows through the heart center and endeavor to keep it steadily there. However, forget about the fact of the heart center and keep the mind predominantly upon the love aspect of the soul. Say then: I pour out love upon the sons of men.
  3. Then for fifteen minutes ponder upon the nature and significance of love.
  4. After pondering the subject of love for three weeks each month, you can (during the fourth week) study with care the thoughts that have come into your mind in connection with this theme. This you can do from the following three angles:
    1. Of right or of wrong action in the expression of love.
    2. Of motive, high or low, in the expression of love.
    3. Of soul activity in the expression of love.

    The sixth ray expression of love is usually idealistic a fanatically applied; frequently, true love itself is lack, and there is the imposition upon others of what the son himself thinks is love. It was the second ray energy [249] of love which, in the case of Christ, dominated His sixth ray Personality. Slowly and gradually, this domination must begin to take place in you.

The rest of the meditation you know, and it need not be recorded here.
